EVGA Z68 SLI Motherboard Review
Hi Tech Legion posted a review on the EVGA Z68 SLI Motherboard

The EVGA Z68 SLI is physically identical in layout to EVGA's P67 SLI motherboard. The difference however, is that the EVGA Z68 SLI motherboard is capable of using Intel's Smart Response Technology, an SSD caching feature that marries boosts traditional HDD performance with SSD speeds. The EVGA Z68 SLI can run up to two PCI-E x16 graphic cards with an additional PCI-E x16 at x4 mode underneath for a dedicated PhysX card. Enthusiast features like on-board power, reset, clear CMOS and a debug LED found on the EVGA Z68 FTW are also available on the EVGA Z68 SLI motherboard.

Super Talent USB 3.0 Express RC8 50GB (SF-1200) SSD Flash Drive Review
The SSD Review posted Super Talent USB 3.0 Express RC8 50GB (SF-1200) SSD Flash Drive Review

Today's review is on the Super Talent RC8 50 GB USB Flash Drive which just may be the most powerful flash drive on the planet. Who would expect more from a 'SandForce Driven' product pushing 8 channels of NAND flash memory? Lets not confuse things though as this USB 3.0 flash drive is a solid state drive through and through. We hope that the tale told by the RC8 in our report will, not only teach you a thing or two about SSDs but also, provide you with a glimpse of the RC8s capabilities in the near future.

Arctic Cooling Arctic Equipment M362 Wireless Mouse Review
Viperlair posted a review on the Arctic Cooling Arctic Equipment M362 Wireless Mouse

The Arctic Equipment M362 Wireless Mouse doesn't have any included drivers, so installation is as easy as plugging in the receiver and turning the mouse on. The mouse is powered by 2 AAA batteries (included) which fit in a compartment under the mouse and towards the rear. The compartment itself is quite small, and one battery fits on top of the other almost.

Raidmax Aeolus Gaming Case Review
DreamWare Computers posted a review on the Raidmax Aeolus Gaming Case

In ancient Greek mythology, Aeolus was the ruler of the winds. When directed by the higher gods, he would release the winds as breezes or gales - or whatever the gods wished. Had the gods had computers, they would have likely summoned Aeolus to keep their overclocked, quad-core rigs nice and breezy.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution PC Review
TweakTown posted a review on the Deus Ex: Human Revolution PC

When it comes to games that PC gamers look on fondly, Deus Ex is right up there. Released by Warren Spectors ION Storm back in the day, Deus Ex was a revolutionary RPG that showed RPG games do not necessarily have to be in a fantasy world to succeed. The unique aspects of melding your character via different technical options and having many different ways to achieve objectives were revolutionary at the time.

The sequel, Infinite War was overhyped and unfortunately left a poor taste in the mouth. Eidos Montreal has been tasked with reinvigorating the franchise for the third outing, and you know what? They just might have succeeded. Deus Ex Human Revolution is a prequel to the original game which has allowed Eidos Montreal a lot of room to design a story that they own rather than being stuck to the events of the previous games, especially the second one.

Seven 8 GB DDR3 Memory Kits For Your AMD A75 Motherboard
Tom's Hardware Guide takes a look at seven 8 GB DDR3 Memory Kits for your AMD A75 motherboard

The biggest surprise in AMD’s Llano architecture was its integrated GPU's ability to play real games. And by real games we mean the kinds of titles that people who call themselves enthusiasts like to play. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is actually viable at high quality and 1680x1050. What you need to understand, though, is that gaming performance is largely affected by the memory you drop into a Llano-powered machine, as discussed in Chris Angelini's launch coverage page, “Making Memory Performance Matter Again.”

ASRock Z68 Extreme7 Gen3 (Intel Z68) Motherboard Review
TweakTown posted a review on the ASRock Z68 Extreme7 Gen3 (Intel Z68) Motherboard

Even before I took over the Motherboard category here at TweakTown, I'd been using ASRock boards for a while since my VGA and RAM testbeds both used them. ASRock make some great boards, but there was always one little problem with them. Aesthetically they never looked great and considering what a shallow world we live in these days, the overall look of the boards were probably a little bit of a downer for some people.

Jump forward a bit and we got the release of the Fatal1ty line of boards; we saw a shift to those black PCBs with the accents of red. This was a really nice step in the right direction, but in the event you didn't want to be stared down by Fatal1ty in the BIOS, you were unfortunately out of luck when it came to other options. Jump forward yet again and we have the launch of the new Gen3 series boards from ASRock. When I saw pictures of these boards I was really "Wowed" by the look of them. Before we have a closer look at the board itself, though, we need to check out the package.
