Patriot Viper II Sector 5 PC3 20000 Cas 9 4GB Review
OCC has published a review on the Patriot Viper II Sector 5 PC3 20000 Cas 9 4GB

When it came time to overclock the modules, the system was tapped out at 2500MHz on air. Maybe some sub-zero cooling could help these modules scale a bit higher. These modules will, however, run at lower speeds with tighter timings. Cas 6 was run at up to 1940MHz, Cas 7 to 2058 and surprisingly Cas 8 to 2490MHz. The only problem is to get the modules to scale, you need to bump up the TRCD setting in the memory sub-timings.

ASUS GeForce GTX 465 Review
PureOverclock has published a review of the ASUS GeForce GTX 465 graphics card

The ASUS GeForce GTX 465 is based on the reference Nvidia design, but it does bring a few ASUS-specific features to the table. Like to overclock? Want to adjust voltages without voiding your warranty? Want some excellent overclocking headroom? Then you're in for a treat today, as this ASUS card looks to improve upon a couple of the shortcoming of its flagship sibling, setting its sights directly on the Radeon 5830 and 5850, both in terms of performance and price.

HP EliteBook 8440w Mobile Workstation Notebook Review
TestFreaks posted a review on the HP EliteBook 8440w Mobile Workstation Notebook

Up on the review block today I’ve got the Hp EliteBook 8440W Notebook that’s actually called a Mobile Workstation. If you couldn’t guess by that name it’s more of a business centric laptop, but it’s powerful with a Corei7 Quad core CPU in it, and the Nvidia Quadro graphics chip as well. There are security features for business and other features like a smart card reader and biometric fingerprint reader along with a built-in business cad scanner and HPO video chat software to make meetings easier. It’s running Windows 7 Pro 64bit, and it’s the most powerful laptop I’ve had the chance to test to date. So read on to learn more..

SilverStone HDDBOOST Review
OCIA.net has posted their review of the SilverStone HDDBOOST

SilverStone produces a variety of products from cases and power supplies to coolers and storage enclosures. With the HDDBOOST, the basic concept is that we are combining the storage capacity of a traditional hard drive with the speed capabilities of a solid-state drive. That alone would be a good reason to look into the HDDBOOST but furthermore this device is targeted at users who have an existing system and would like a speed increase but don't want to reinstall the operating system and start fresh. SilverStone claims that an existing host drive can see an increase in performance of up to 70%.

The Razer Abyssus Mirror Special Edition Review
ITShootOut.com takes a look at the Razer Abyssus Mirror Special Edition gaming mouse

Razer's new gaming mouse sheds a lot of bells and whistles in order to cater for the frugal buyer. Is the Abyssus Mirror Edition a case of simple elegance in action or have too many premium features been cut out? ITShootout.com's Jon Martindale investigates.

There are several big names in the computing industry that have something the others don’t: a pedigree; a long standing production history of quality products. However, these companies tend to be in the internal hardware fields: Intel, AMD, nVidia, ATI, Asus, and so on. There are fewer of these in the peripheral world, though one or two definitely sit at the top of the pile; Razer is one such manufacturer. While not every product the firm produces is top notch, one thing is certain, they do know what they’re doing when it comes to gaming mice. However, today we need to put that thought aside and take a look at one of Razer's freshest products, the Abyssus Mirror Special Edition.
