Patriot G2 (GAMER 2) 1600MHz CL9 8GB Review
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 7:13P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was at the very end of last year that Patriot Memory announced the commencement of a new series named Gamer 2 (G2 for short). This new series of memory, again, like many of our recent memory product reviews is focussed on the new Sandy Bridge platform. Apart from their attractive price-tag they also have a number of pleasing characteristics - they are extremely low profile, so much so that the heatspreaders are in fact shorter than the modules they cover. They are also said to give impressive performance figures too.

Inno3D GTX560 Ti 1GB OC Review
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 7:12P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some may remember Nvidia first using "Ti" on the GeForce 2 cards until its demise on their 4th generations of graphics cards. Representing Titanium, the cards boasting the moniker were renowned to be popular, hence Nvidia bringing the name back. The GTX560 is set to succeed the GTX460 but not replace it based on their differing price points. At $249/£200, it is meant to fit in between AMD's HD6870 and HD6950. Another benefit of the GTX560 over the GTX460 is the lack of confusion regarding its memory framebuffer at a set 1GB and more importantly, its clock speeds are 822MHz on the core and 4000MHz on the memory, a welcomed boost to consumers. Another impressive feat has been Nvidia's ability to fit the card's improved performance in a similar power envelope as the GTX460. Its TDP is a mere 10W higher than the latter, highlighting the GTX560's efficiency. This particular card by Inno3D has been overclocked to its limit out of the box, testament to the brand's confidence in the card. Set at 950/4300MHz, it is one of the highest clocked GTX560s on the market and Inno3D have stuck to the reference cooler for its purposes.

Enermax Hoplite Review
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 7:11P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Enermax are world renowned for their presence within the PSU and cooling departments and are regarded as a household name, but would you be shocked to hear that Enermax also produce computer cases? Admittedly they have only a very small selection to choose from, but in the last 2 years Enermax have branched off into the computer case genre which will certainly surprised quite a few. These cases have been directed toward entry level users, so fundamentally the hardware enthusiast will be ignorant of their existence. But this year, things are about to change."

Mionix Propus 380 Review
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 7:11P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The most underrated component in any gaming configuration has to be the beloved mouse pad. Some would even claim its presence isn't a necessity. But in essence, combining a gaming mouse with a decent gaming pad will be complimentary. It's a fair point that if you were to spend between £30-70 on a gaming mouse to enhance your esports endeavours then you really ought to invest in a quality gaming surface to compliment the setup. Afterall its the sensor that will be doing all the hard work, it surely behoves the avid gamer to choose carefully."

Intel DP67BG Review
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the DP67BG Intel presents its Sandy Bridge motherboard which has been designed for overclockers and gamers. The board therefore comes with decent overclocking features in the BIOS as well as attractive performance. Regarding features the list isn't very long but never the less there still is the backlit skull which one could also find on the previous board.

Antec HCG-750 750 Watt
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 4:02P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Neben der High-Current-Pro-Serie, welche wir in Form des HCP-750 vor kurzem vorstellten, bietet Antec noch eine weitere aktuelle Netzteilserie an, welche sich vornehmlich an Spieler richtet. Der Name dieser Serie lautet daher auch recht simpel: High Current Gamer, kurz HCG. So gibt es in dieser Serie insgesamt fünf Leistungsstufen, welche sich nicht nur in eben jener Leistung und auch den Anschlüssen, sondern auch optisch unterscheiden. Wir entschieden uns für unseren Test die 750 Watt starke Variante zu nutzen, da diese vier PCIe-Stromanschlüsse besitzt und so auch unseren SLI-Test ermöglicht. Neben dieser Version gibt es die HCG-Serie noch mit 400, 520, 620 und 900 Watt Leistung. Wie sich das HCG-750 in unserem Testparcour schlägt, zeigen wieder ein mal die folgenden Seiten.

Posted by: STAFF
“In Win is a company we know for making cases that are attractive, have all of the features you want, but still are affordable. Today we will be taking a look at their new BUC “buck” mid-tower case. The concept behind the BUC is “strong shield” and this concept is echoed through the case with its strong SECC steel construction and stylish interior and exterior. The case features a practically tool-less design, 3 120mm cooling fans, USB 3.0 connectivity, and a hot swap module on the side of the case. Let’s take a look and see if this is the perfect case for your next bu ild."

Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 Xtreme 1GB Review
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It may seem odd that we're taking a look at an HD 5850 card in 2011, but Sapphire just released an "Xtreme" edition that's well worth the look. In addition to great pricing, the card features an improved VRM design, a more efficient cooler, and a shorter PCB. But, in the end, it's the $150 price tag that makes this card an absolute winner.

Asus EAH6850 HD Graphics Card Review
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 3:50P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Building gaming rigs these days can be a bit confusing, with the continuous launch of new cards on virtually a weekly basis it seems it can be hard to sift through the masses and find the right fit for you. Asus has always been a brand I personally trust for putting out quality products so when they offered me a 6850 with their own brand of aftermarket cooling I jumped at the chance. I have seen a lot of cards come and go but when it comes to my systems my permanent cards have always been Asus with the exception of one 5870 from PowerColor PCS++ series which I was very impressed with. Today we will be running the numbers on the Asus EAH6850 HD Direct CU graphics card and we will see if it is a good fit for your next build:

Cyberpower Gamer Xtreme 4000 Sandy Bridge System Review
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 3:50P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"What can be said about a full system that does exactly what we expected it to do? More specifically, what can't we say! In short, this system pretty much rocked the socks off of everything I am currently using in my main system. Time for an upgrade. Well, first I'll have to convince the wife that a shiny new CyberPower Gamer Xtreme 4000 is worth skipping a few meals. I'm not saying that the CyberPower Gamer Xtreme 4000 is expensive; quite the contrary. If you were to purchase all of the parts to build a comparable system at Newegg.com, you may just be surprised..."
