Crucial Adrenaline SSD Review: Solid State Cache for Your Hard Drive @ Techspot
Last January, Crucial announced their latest SSD series called Adrenaline. Not meant to replace their existing and well regarded m4 drives, the Adrenaline is a cache solution meant to work along your existing disk drive, using a 50GB SSD to act as solid state flash-based cache for your larger primary hard drive.

The Adrenaline doesn't require any special drivers as it uses the SATA interface, it can be installed at any point and can therefore be fitted to any computer without the need to reinstall Windows.

HIS Radeon HD 7770 iCooler GHz Edition 1GB Video Card Review @ TweakTown
Firing up 3DMark 11 we ended up with a score of P3580 which is exactly what we'd expect from the HD 7770. It's not a bad score, but our issue has always been compared to the HD 6870 which sits at a similar price point at the moment, the HD 7770 comes off looking quite overpriced.

What was really nice though was the cooler which let the GPU sit at 35c when idle and still quite a cool 51c at load. More surprising, though, was the cooler which came in at 54.4dB at idle and 55.1dB at load. These are good numbers which see this as the second coolest running card and quietest active cooled card we've tested recently.

AZZA Fusion 4000 ATX Super Full Tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
The 4000 Fusion from AZZA is an absolute beast of a chassis. The AZZA Fusion 4000 is a ATX Super Full Tower case. The really cool thing about the Fusion 4000 is that it holds two complete computer systems in a single enclosure. Some of the many features are USB 3.0, 10 expansion bays, 6 external 5 1/4" drive bays, 4x 2 1/2" external easy swap, 6+2 internal 3 1/2" easy swap bays, motherboard compatibility for XL-ATX, E-ATX, Full ATX, Micro ATX and ITX boards. The list of features seems endless for the Fusion 4000 but the pièce de résistance is for the water cooling enthusiasts since the Fusion 4000 holds up to three radiators in different flavors: 1x480mm, 1x360mm and 1x120mm.
