Techgage Two For One
WD RE 4TB Enterprise HD

"There’s a relative lack of 4TB hard drive options on the market at the moment, but those looking for enthusiast or enterprise models are well taken care of. We’ve already taken a look at WD’s enthusiast part, the Black 4TB, so now it’s time to shift our attention to the feature-packed and enterprise-focused RE."

Fractal Design Define R4 Case

"Where desktops are concerned, some may consider bigger to be better, but sometimes, there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a simple, classy-looking PC that you can barely hear. Helping to make that scenario a reality is Fractal Design, with its sound-dampened mid-tower Define R4."

Evening Reading
"Holy cow, Batman! The original Batmobile was auctioned Saturday for $4.62 million, including commission, at the Barrett-Jackson car auction in Scottsdale, Ariz. The crime-fighting vehicle was built by George Barris, who transformed a 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car he bought for $1 into one of the most recognizable vehicles in entertainment history."

Tweaktown Two For One
HIS Radeon HD 7970 3GB IceQ X2

"We continue to not really hear anything about the HD 8000 serious, though, when it comes to desktop parts and the latest we're hearing from companies is the second half of 2013 for launch. For anyone interested in grabbing a new video card the good news is that while the HD 7000 series might be a year old now, they're going to be around for at least another six months - at least that's what we're hearing."

Noctua NH-L9i Low-Profile CPU Cooler

"Since that time Noctua may no longer be the only silent offering out there, but they have kept their heads in the game and are always looking for new or better ways to innovate coolers. Whether we are discussing the D-14 behemoth, or even some of the C-Style coolers, Noctua has been delivering top-end performance even when the coolers had to be limited in size. On that note, Noctua has now developed one of the smallest coolers I have ever tested, and that includes low profile Intel stockers, and that SilverStone cooler that was essentially the same thing."

TechWareLabs Two For One
Why Is Your Power Supply Important?

"TechwareLabs brings you the reason why your power supply is critical to your machine. We had the opportunity to sit down with some of the experts behind the NZXT line of power supplies and discuss the impact that a bad power supply can have. Protect your investment and watch this short video BEFORE you buy."

Western Digital RE 4TB Hard Drive

"While SSDs are by now the unquestioned performance kings when it comes to storage, their capacities are still too low and cost-per-gigabyte still too high for them to displace hard drives completely. While SSDs continue to improve at a meteoric rate, hard drive manufacturers aren't sitting still. Today, we'll be taking a look at Western Digital's latest attempt at pushing back the superparamagnetic limit, the WD RE SATA 4TB drive. Whether it's meant for large-capacity storage on a workstation, or as a way to expand the capacity of a high-load NAS device, this drive is WD's current cream of the crop for SATA drives. Let's take a look and see how it measures up."

Seasonic G-360 & G-550 Power Supplies

"So far we have only come across Seasonic power supply units certified according to the highest standards in the upper price segment. However, the new G series units with 80 PLUS Gold certification belong to a much more affordable mainstream range."

Thermalright Archon SB-E Cooler

"In an attempt to improve the legendary Archon cooler even more, Thermalright made a few minor modifications to their heatsink, provided a new fan and slightly changed the retention mechanism. Let’s find out how good it turned out."

Legit Reviews Two For One
Tt Toughpower Grand Platinum 700W PS

"With a MSRP price of $189.99 at the time of this review, the Toughpower Grand Platinum is one of the most expensive 700W power supplies available in the market; however, the high price could be possibly justified by the number of features and the performance of this unit. The list of features of the Toughpower Grand Platinum is so long that we simply cannot list them all in a single paragraph; however, we feel that the major highlights of this power supply are the 80Plus Platinum certification, the 7-year long manufacturer's warranty and its unique..."

Tt eSPORTS Level 10 M Mouse

""Thermaltake and DesignWorksUSA, a BMW owned design consultancy, have returned to develop a new Level 10 product that isn’t a computer case. The Level 10 M joins the Tt eSPORTS branding as an ambitious gaming mouse with an aluminum base, an 8200 DPI laser sensor, five side buttons, and custom lighting zones. This is a large mouse at 5.8 x 2.7 x 1.5 inches (LxWxH) and 6.5 ounces. Despite the official specifications, the palm piece is 4.75 inches long..."

Hardware Secrets Four For All
SilverStone Strider Gold 650W PS

"SilverStone released a series of power supplies with the 80 Plus Gold certification and a fully modular cabling system, with 550 W, 650 W, and 1,000 W versions, dubbed the Strider Gold. Let's see if the 650 W model, also known as SST-ST65F-G, deserves our recommendation."

Zalman LQ310 CPU Cooler

"The LQ310 greatly resembles the Thermaltake WATER2.0 Performer, which we tested some time ago. They both are manufactured by Asetek, but they are not the same product (at least the fans are not the same)."

Noctua NH-L9i CPU Cooler

"We tested the cooler with a Core i5-2500K CPU (quad-core, 3.3 GHz), which is a socket LGA1155 processor with a 95 W TDP (Thermal Design Power). In order to get higher thermal dissipation, we overclocked it to 4.0 GHz (100 MHz base clock and x40 multiplier), with 1.3 V core voltage (Vcore)"

Gigabyte Force M7 Thor Mouse

"When one gets a mouse named after the god of thunder of Norse mythology, one imagines a mighty peripheral, worthy of the son of Odin himself. However, the Force M7 Thor (from now on we'll just call it "the Thor" for short) is a low-cost mouse that is also low on features."

RB Mods Two For One
Steelseries Flux Headphones

"Looking for a high quality headset or headphones? Then you should most definitely keep reading as we take on the Steelseries Flux headset. This is a 100$ headset so the expectations are high for me; let’s waste no further time and get on with the review."

NZXT Cryo V60 Bladeless Laptop Cooler

"Did you see those fans Dyson was promoting a year ago or so? Bladeless fans, well NZXT has made something similar by releasing a bladeless laptop cooler. The Cryo V60 has no visible fans and no fanblades you are going to have to worry about, but how well does it work?"

Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3-1600 16GB

"With their Ballistix Sport VLP (Very Low Profile) modules Crucial are looking to offer a value packed product which appeals to consumers who need low voltage, compact memory in high capacities."

Sapphire HD 7870 XT With Boost

"Today we take our second look at Tahiti LE with the Sapphire 7870 XT (With Boost) and in this article will be maxing out its core and memory speed then checking how it performs in games like Far Cry 3, Assassins Creed 3 and Hitman Absolution against a max OC 660 Ti."

Pure Overclock Two For One
NZXT Phantom 820 Case

“The NZXT Phantom has been reborn, this time as the Phantom 820, an enthusiast steel full tower chassis, engineered to chill even the most demanding systems. The Phantom 820 is equipped with 200 mm and 140 mm fans in strategic positions for top airflow throughout the chassis. It is designed for the hardcore enthusiast or gamer, who wants or needs the very best. Can it measure up?”

Thermalright True Spirit 120m CPU Cooler

“Over the years we have seen hundreds of air coolers of various models and designs. From the smaller coolers to the larger twin tower coolers, performance is always a key factor when it comes to finding the right product. Today we are going to be looking to a new unique design by Thermalright. It is called the True Spirit 120m. Does it have the right aesthetic appeal and how does it stack up with some of today’s coolers in thermal performance? That is what we will attempt to answer in our review today.”

Pro-Clockers Two For One
NZXT Kraken X40 Water Cooler

"So what must a user do if they only have locations that support only a single 140mm fans? Simple, run out and pick up a Kraken X40 for yourself. The X40 is the single slot model of the X60. NZXT promises very good thermal numbers from the X40 because of its powerful pump, larger radiator and 140mm fan. I personally can't wait to see how well it holds up again the bigger brother and other AIO coolers on the market."

Crucial Ballistix Tactical LP 1600MHz 16GB

"Crucial's newest has the same low stance, better timings and operates at the same voltage. I guess you can say the Tactical line is one step higher to the Sport as it boasts 8-8-8-24 instead of 9-9-9-24. Many individuals would not mind owning either but we are digging the lower timings and the quicker refresh."

Madshrimps Two For One
Fractal Define R4 Case

"Swedish Company Fractal Design is renown for their sleek enclosures. In typical Scandinavian style their product range can best be described as: A minimalistic yet striking design, where less is more. Quality, functionality and pricing go hand in hand. Today we introduce one of their latest creations: The Fractal Design Define R4 enclosure."

Mionix Ensis 320 Mouse Pad

"The Ensis 320 takes part from Mionix new series of aluminum mouse pads, comes in two color flavors and its contact surface has been treated with a low data loss treatment, which gives the product a matte glow. Its total width is 2mm, the first half being the machined aluminum surface and the second a non-slip grip natural rubber material."

TechPowerUp Two For One
Rosewill SilentNight 500W PS

"Rosewill just introduced their first passive cooling PSU: the SilentNight 500 W made by Super Flower. It offers Platinum efficiency, high performance, and noise output at close to zero levels because of the absence of a cooling fan. This unit goes up against some strong competition, but has many interesting features."

OCZ Vector 256 GB SSD

"The OCZ Vector SSD is based on a brand-new Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller which is a 100% in-house development by OCZ. We see outstanding steady state performance and excellent real-life results from this new drive that will strengthen OCZ's position in the SSD market."

Frosty Tech Two For One
NZXT Respire T20 CPU Cooler

"On the dock today is NZXT's Respire T20 heatsink. The Respire T20 stands 160mm tall, putting it in the class of full tower CPU coolers. At the heart of this 510 gram heatsink are three heatpipes; two 6mm diameter and one 8mm diameter, all exposed at the base for efficient heat conduction."

NZXT Respire T40 CPU Cooler

"At the heart of this 158mm tall heatsink are four 8mm diameter copper heatpipes and a 120mm, 68CFM fan. The heatpipes are all exposed at the base while the aluminum fin stack is pretty standard; there aren't any fancy leading edges, punched out cooling fin patterns or unnecessary plastic fan shrouds. The 120mm fan rotates at 1800-1300RPM and moves upwards of 68CFM through the heatsinks' 112x130mm fin stack."

Pro-Clockers Two For One
NZXT Kraken X60 Water Cooling Kit

"NZXT labeled their AIO series the Kraken. If you have seen the movie Clash of the Titans or if you are up on your mythology, you know the Kraken were a large ocean-lived octopus looking creature that was able to destroy ships with ease. And this is the angle in which NZXT is taking with their new water-cooler. The X40 and X60, the latter we will be looking at first are the first AIO to take advantage of the larger 140mm cooling fans and spacing."

Patriot Extreme Performance Viper 3 1600MHz 8GB

"The new Viper 3 is a series aimed at enthusiast whose system is built around Intel's 6/7 series platform. The kits from this line-up are hand tested, uses great heat sinks for cooling and should (we are hoping) to have plenty of room left for some very decent overclocking."

Techgage Two For One
WD Black 4TB Hard Drive

"WD’s Black 4TB is the sort of product that doesn’t need much of an introduction – it speaks for itself. We’re dealing with a standard-sized desktop hard drive that sports a market-leading 4TB of storage. That’s 4,000GB, for those not paying enough attention. It’s impressive on paper, so let’s see how it fares in our benchmarks."

Assassin’s Creed III

"Since 2007, the Assassin’s Creed series has taken us on one heck of a wild ride. The latest title is simply called Assassin’s Creed III, and it looks to be the most ambitious one yet. Will the questions surrounding Desmond finally be answered, or will this be another minor stepping stone in the oceanic enigma that is the AC story?"

Nikktech Two For One
Kingston SSDNow KC100 240GB SSD Kit

"Just 2 days prior to getting into 2013 we had to sit down and pick the first product reviews which would get us into 2013 for good and since recently we promised to bridge the gap created in our SSD reviews section we decided to test yet another such product. Now if you read our Intel 335 SSD review you should be well aware that the performance factor regarding SATA III solid state drives hasn't really changed that much in 2012 (always compared to 2011) and so at least until the new controllers arrive in late Q1 (if all goes according to plan) we really can't expect to come across anything that will blow what we currently know out of the water."

Razer Sabertooth XBOX 360 Controller

"Now Razer have a second generation of Xbox 360 controller, the Sabertooth, which looks to improve on the impressive start made by the Onza. Today the Sabertooth launches and we have one attached to our system to find out how it compares."

BCC Hardware Two For One
NZXT Kraken X60 Water CPU Cooler

"The only cooler that was able to beat the Kraken X60 (and only by 0.25 of a degree) was the Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme. The fact that both of these cooler are so close in performance isn't too surprising as both the Kraken X60 and the Water 2.0 Extreme are both based on the same Asetek Gen4 platform. Based on the very small difference between the two we could pretty much declare the performance between the two coolers a tie. . ."

NZXT Kraken X40 Water CPU Cooler

"Today we are going to take a look at the NZXT Kraken X40 Liquid CPU cooler. The Kraken X40 features a 140mm radiator to which you can attach up to two 140mm fans (only one fan is included with the cooler). The Kraken series of coolers also has a bigger version called the X60 which features a larger 280mm radiator."

ASUS HD 7970 Matrix Platinum

"The HD 7970 Matrix Platinum is designed with one purpose in mind: push the AMD Tahiti core to its limits. While AMD has launched the GHz edition HD 7970 to combat the significant performance lead the Nvidia GTX 680 has had over it, the ASUS HD 7970 Matrix Platinum takes it one step further, just take a look at the clock speeds below."

JBL OnBeat Micro

"The JBL OnBeat Micro looks like a miniature flying saucer to be honest, with a recessed center that docks your iPhone or iPod. Surrounding the OnBeat Micro is a speaker grille that hides the device’s tiny speakers. You also have a speaker button, status LED light, and a volume control button, and that’s about it."

"Today we are going to talk about the new NAS storage system from Western Digital based on Intel 1.8 GHz Atom dual-core processor and featuring two hard drives inside. It is also is powered by Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials and is targeted for SMBs with 25 client devices or less."

Guild Wars 2 Digital Deluxe

"In their second installment of the popular Guild Wars franchise, ArenaNet has certainly bought out the big guns. In this article, Benchmark Reviews will be reviewing their "Digital Deluxe" offering, which includes some compelling extras for those that plan to be in larger guilds. The game features a heavily modified Guild Wars 1 graphics engine, complete with totally new audio and cinematics engines which take advantage of today's DirectX 11 video and sound cards. With continuous events and structured player versus player, there should be plenty to keep you occupied for a long time."

"Cooler Master has their own gaming line called CM Storm. CM Storm offers keyboards, mice, headsets and even cases for gamers. Today we are checking out one of their latest cases the Scout 2. I did not get the chance to check out the original Scout case so I do not know what to expect. The Scout 2 features support for long video cards, room for up to 7 hard drives, tool-less installation of hard drives and optical drives, USB 3.0 support and a handle so you can easily take your system with you to a LAN party.
