Budget & Boutique Speaker Design
"Andrew Jones has a degree in physics, but his real passion is speaker design. He started out as a research engineer for KEF in 1983, later moved to Infinity and now he's with Pioneer, and is chiefly responsible for their ultra high-end TAD Reference line of speakers that sell for upwards of $80,000! Jones not only designs speakers that sell for as much as a luxury Mercedes Benz, he's also made some of the world's best affordable speakers."

Ninja Lane Two For One
Gigabyte Z87X OC Motherboard

"In this review we will be looking at the Gigabyte Z87X OC motherboard and contrasting many of its features with the Gigabyte Z87X-OC Force. Both the OC and OC Force are part of the OC line from Gigabyte designed for the computer enthusiast and overclocker. Each board targets a different market segment with the OC Force supporting 4-way SLI and multiple graphic setups while the OC takes advantage of CPU based overclocking and popular single video card benching."

Thermaltake NiC F4 Heatsink

"In this review we'll be looking at the NiC F4 heatsink from Thermaltake . The NiC (No Interference Cooler) is designed to be a full tower cooler that won't interfere with any onboard components including extra tall memory modules. Self contained watercooling units have eliminated this on high-end systems but for the casual system builder and OEM the balancing act of performance, size and price still play a major factor in the decision making process."

Madshrimps Two For One
Gigabyte GTX 770 WindForce OC 2GB

"Keeping the same 450W Cooling capacity using only 2 slots, the New WINDFORCE 3X 450W cooling system is equipped with two 8mm and four 6mm cooper heat-pipes , inclined fans, and GIGABYTE “Triangle Cool” technology. This not only provides an effective heat dissipation capacity but GPU Boost 2.0 technology also enables higher performance due to a lower temperature. Brand-new instinctive user interface, easier to monitor and adjust all important settings. Users can set up MONITORING, GPU CLOCK, MEMORY CLOCK, FAN, GPU VOLTAGE, Memory VOLTAGE, OSD, ONLINE SUPPORT and update driver, BIOS directly."

EK Water Blocks Titan Block Kit

"The Nvidia TITAN card is one serious monster gaming graphics card. Maximum performance awaits you if you are able to pay the atmospheric price tag. For those that want the fastest single GPU graphics card at the moment, this is the right one for you. But it's not all roses here for Nvidia's fastest GPU. The TITAN card is seriously limited by an average power design, allowing almost no extra headroom for that little extra crunching power. Secondly the stock heatsink is also running on its toes to keep the card just below throttling temperature. The latter is where watercooling comes to the rescue. Slovenian EK Waterblocks was so kind to send us one of their full cover block TITAN versions bundled with the backplate. A newer XL version of this full cover block also has popped up in the EK online shop. Time to unpack one of EK's marvels."

Hot Hardware Two For One
EVGA GeForce GTX 770 SC W/ACX Cooling

"Coincident with the launch of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 700 series of products, EVGA unveiled a new invention of its own: the ACX cooler. ACX is an acronym for "Active Cooling Extreme" and as the name suggests, it's a cooling solution for high-end graphics cards. To date, we have looked at two ACX-equipped graphics cards, the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC ACX and GeForce GTX 760 SC ACX. We found both cards to be class-leading products and liked them both very much. And so far, the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC ACX remains the fastest, single-GPU powered graphics card we have tested. In fact, it's factory overclock allowed it to overtake a standard GeForce GTX Titan."

Logitech H650e & H820e Enterprise Headsets

"Logitech has a long history of developing products for consumers, who traditionally have valued style and comfort, perhaps more so than corporate purchasers. Its business components are stylish, too, and are designed to match durability with comfort. To give us a feel for what Logitech can do for business users, the company sent us two of its headsets: We took the USB-powered Logitech H650e ($89.99) and the wireless H820e ($199.99) for a spin and have our thoughts posted here..."

Leap Motion Review
"Over the last decade our computers have taken big leaps. They've gotten thinner, faster and much more affordable, yet the way we navigate them has stayed virtually the same since 1983 when Apple released the Lisa, one of the first computers with a mouse. It's 2013, and while some Windows laptops have touchscreens, for the most part we rely on a trackpad or mouse to push around a little cursor for selecting images or text. Until this week."

Legit Reviews Two For One
Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 Case

"The Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 has many features to make it worth taking a look at. The cable routing and cooling options alone are hard to beat in a case this size. The Arc Midi R2 can be found at Amazon for $99.99 shipped which places it in the higher tier of cases for the mid sized case category. There are many cheaper alternatives, but not many will offer..."

Corsair Carbide 300R Case

"At first glance, I really liked the simple appearance of the Corsair Carbide 300R case. The sleek flat black finish is always a winner in my books. On the front, Corsair added some extra design elements which were very welcome. These elements included things like the hex screw heads and the recessed mesh in front of the intake fan. The location of the I/O connectors, at the very top of the face, were definitely placed properly for those who place their computer on the ground or low..."

Heaven Media Two For One
EVGA GeForce GTX 770 SC

"Today we take a look at one of the newest GTX 770 models on the market, EVGA's Superclocked Edition. The GTX 770 SC features a new cooler from EVGA as well as a few other tweaks that help to differentiate this from competing models. We'll be putting it through a selection of real world tests against its direct competition from AMD to see how it does in titles like Crysis 3, DOTA2 and Metro: Last Light."

Corsair Vengeance Pro 1866MHz Kit

"In our roundup last week we took a look at a range of high end Z87 boards which were ideal to build a performance based Haswell system on. Of course as well as our board and CPU we need a great kit of memory to help us maximise performance. Corsair aim to do exactly that with their new Vengeance Pro modules and today we have a 16GB kit on our test bench."

RB Mods Two For One
Icy Box Big City Vibes IB-HPH2 Headphones

"Today we are going to take a look at headphoens from Icy Box, who we’ve previously recieved review products from before. They have named the headphones Big City Vibe or IB-HPH2 if you prefer that. According to earlier reviews and user experience they should have good sound and a balanced bass so I have high hopes for these headphones that you can pick up for fairly inexpensive on the market."

Icy Box IB-WF200HD

"Do you have problems with storage space on your smartphone or are you hesitant about loading it up with movies? Icy box think they have a solution to these problems! They sent us their 2.5″ HDD Enclosure that connects either through USB 3 or Wifi; this means we should be able to stream all media to a smartphone through a simple app. The question is though; does it work?"

Pro-Clockers Two For One
Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3 2400MHz 16GB

"Corsair has just released their newest ram kits called the Vengeance Pro. The new series is designed for the third and fourth generation Intel users that want the most when it comes to overclocking would certainly love the Corsair Vengeance Pro. This isn't Corsair's first memory series to have the name 'Vengeance' in them. Some time ago, they launched the standard Vengeance series and with that there are some variations within the series like the Extreme (3000MHz) and the Low Profile modules."

Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard

"We just recently had our time with the Corsair Vengeance K95 keyboard. It is a fantastic keyboard especially for those that are really into RPS and MMORPG titles. It has plenty of G-keys or macro keys that the user can use to do all the many technical movements needed in such a game. But what if you don’t need macros key or so many of them? Well, Corsair has a keyboard for that as well. That keyboard is the Corsair Vengeance K70 designed for the fast pace movements of the FPS games."

X-bit labs Two For One
Asus P8Z77-M & Gigabyte GA-Z77M-D3H MB

"The technical specifications of both these mainboard models based on Intel Z77 Express are almost identical, the prices are also very similar, so they seem like great candidates for side by side comparison. However, they turned out quite different from one another even when running in their nominal mode, not to mention the overclocked mode."

Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 2 GB Video Card

"Nvidia continues to roll out 7xx series graphics accelerators into the market. Today we are going to introduce to you a very worthy replacement to the good old single-GPU flagship solution - GTX 680. It is the new Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 graphics card."

Seagate Laptop 500 GB SSHD

"The Seagate Laptop Thin SSHD 500 GB hard disk drive is part of the third generation of 2.5" hybrid drives that combine a hard disk drive and flash memory to act as a non-volatile cache to store the user's most frequently accessed data. Let's test it!"

Cooler Master V8 GTS CPU Cooler

"Cooler Master launched today the V8 GTS, a CPU cooler with three heatsinks, eight 6 mm heatpipes, two 140 mm fans, and a vapor chamber. Let's see if these incredible characteristics really bring an incredible cooling performance."

Intel Promises $300 Laptops
"Intel is going to double down on its Atom processors for mobile products, leading to more low-cost laptops, the company's CEO said during Intel's second-quarter earnings conference call on Wednesday. Intel will make mobile Atom chips an equal partner with its mainstream PC processors and will push Atom into sub-$300 laptops and convertibles and $150 tablets, said new CEO Brian Krzanich. "We're putting much, much [more] effort on Atom," he said."

TechWareLabs Two For One
Western Digital SE 4TB Hard Drive

"Western Digital is continually trying to identify gaps in the market and tailor a solution that fills those gaps by providing drives that deliver the performance and features that are attractive to that market segment. With the recent release of their new Se series of drives, Western digital is bridging the gap between their enterprise Re series and their NAS WD Red series. Essentially, the new Se series is a low end Enterprise drive that provides similar performance of an Re drive with a lower cost per gigabyte (due to it's lower workload rating). On paper, this is a perfect solution SOHO/SMB that are looking for higher reliability and performance over desktop drives, but without the enterprise cost that generally comes with the jump from desktop to enterprise class drives."

MSI FM2-A85XA-G65 Motherboard

"With AMD’s most recent APU release, Richland, we are really beginning to see that the all-in-one chip is a feasible alternative to not just the average user, but also gamers and even power users. High performance, low power consumption, and low prices combine to create a potent chip, and as we have shown in our Richland APU review, there is still more potential hidden inside waiting to be released."

Elon Musk Trying To Make Old Idea New
"Elon Musk wants to revolutionize transportation. Again. The serial entrepreneur envisions a future where mag-lev trains in enormous pneumatic tubes whisk us from Los Angeles to New York in 45 minutes. Need to be in Beijing tomorrow? No problem. It's a two-hour ride away. As crazy as it sounds, Musk is merely updating an idea that's been around since the early 1900s, and at least one company is working on a functional prototype. But according to Wired sources, his involvement won't be nearly as hands-on as Musk's other endeavors at Tesla Motors and SpaceX."

BCC Hardware Two For One
PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 750W PS

"Overall, I'm very impressed with the PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 750W PSU. It does exactly what they claim and it does it quietly and is stable. The modular connectors are nifty and while they don't offer a lot of value, they do offer a good amount of curb appeal. I'm a fan. If you need a new PSU and have $130 (at time of publication), the Mk III series from PC Power & Cooling is a great choice. Even if you have multiple video cards on a fast Core i7 system, this PSU has enough power to deliver in most situations."

Roccat Kone XTD Mouse & Hiro Mousepad

"Being able to set profiles that activated for different programs or games meant I was able to really fine tune my button and sensitivity setup. I was definitely impressed that I didn’t have to worry about switching profiles when I opened something. With the profile linked to a specific program, it automatically loaded the profile I needed. It saved me so much time."

Interactive Fan Fit Guide
Our friends at OC Inside have a new Interactive Fan Fit Guide, this guide is for Intel LGA 1150 and AMD Socket FM2 motherboards.

"New Intel Haswell LGA 1150 motherboards and AMD Socket FM2 motherboards, as well as new coolers like e.g. the Cooler Master Eisberg Prestige 240L are added with their cooler sound samples to the interactive Fit for Fan guide. Who never heard about the fit for fan guide may need more explanation. In the year 2001 already followed the question, which CPU cooler can be used for which motherboard. With this interactive fit for fan guide one can find out exactly this with a few clicks, by moving the desired CPU heatsink fan combination virtually on the selected motherboard. You can not only see if CPU cooler fits on the motherboard and how much space is left for the remaining components, but also listen to the cooler sound, check the current price and read a review. The interactive fit for fan guide contains some Intel LGA 1150, LGA 1155, AMD Socket FM2, Socket AM3+, Socket AM2+, Socket 939, Socket 754 and Socket A motherboards and some HSFs for each Socket. Enjoy the new interactive fit for fan guide."

Have MMOs Become Too Easy?

"When World of Warcraft launched in 2004, the world of MMO gaming immediately felt its impact. Competing titles didn't stand much chance, and some were even canceled before release – all because they didn't follow the standard that Blizzard inadvertently created. Is this a problem? For those who appreciate a rewarding experience, it can be."

Cooler Master Storm Havoc Mouse

"In our review of CM’s Sentinel Advance II gaming mouse last year, we found it to be a feature-filled product that was also comfortable to use, but it fell short of earning our wholehearted recommendation. This time around, we've got the SA II’s direct replacement, Havoc. Will the new kid on the block surpass its predecessor?"

Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H Motherboard

"We continue to work our way through the collection of Z87 boards that have piled up and today's offering comes from our friends over from GIGABYTE under the much known UD3H name. Today, though, we've been fortunate enough to get our hands on a new i7 4770k chip which we've been told will overclock better than our previous chip. Due to that we're really looking forward to the overclocking side of things to see just what we're able to do today."

Aerocool Xpredator X3 Case

"The Xpredator X3 Devil Red Edition chassis we are looking at from Aerocool today is a take off on the original X1. While many things both internally, and externally have been changed, most of the aesthetics that sold buyers on the X1, will be very easy for those user to appreciate. Even for those who were completely unaware of Aerocool or their cases will have a hard time passing this chassis by when considering aesthetics and features."

Nikktech Two For One
Gainward GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST 2GB GS

"With the recent release of the GeForce series 7 graphics cards NVIDIA has once again taken the crown for the single most powerful graphics processing unit and although many of us hope that AMD can bring something to match them soon for the sake of competition (and in turn lower prices) things are not that easy. Regardless however although all three cards announced in the series 7 are quite remarkable not everyone has the ability to get one and so with series 6 prices naturally taking a significant hit this just might be the best time for people to invest on one of the previous generation models. Today on our test bench we have the last addition in the GeForce series 6 line by Gainward the 650 Ti BOOST 2GB Golden Sample."

Patriot SuperSonic USB 3.0 Flash Drive

"It's no secret that the most ideal way to carry regular data (and not mission critical ones) is without doubt to own a portable hard drive not only because you can't really find many USB flash drives in the market with capacities exceeding 256GB but also because the ones that are available cost many times over the price of a regular portable hard drive and thus are out of reach for most people. Now as we all know USB flash drives come in various capacities to cover all the possible uses people intend for them but although prices have taken a serious dive for the past years making even 64GB USB flash drives quite affordable size is also a significant factor and for good or bad there aren't that many tiny solutions around at 64GB (even if they were not everyone has use for 64GB)."

Weekend Reading
"A 1954 Mercedes-Benz race car sold for a record $30 million at an auction in England Friday. While collectible cars have been sold privately for more, this is the highest price ever paid for a car at a public auction. Until today, the record had been held by a 1957 Ferrari Testa Rossa Prototype which sold at an auction in California in 2011 for $16.4 million. The Mercedes W196R Formula 1 race car, powered by a 2.5-liter 8-cylinder engine, was one of a group of race cars that won 9 World Championship-qualifying Grand Prix races in 1954 and '55."

Hybrid Power Airliner
"The European airline industry has seen the future of aviation. It’s sleek and organic, carries a sextet of turbines, and its powertrain works a lot like the Chevrolet Volt. The European aerospace consortium EADS has recently shown everything from its largest airliner, the Airbus A380, to its latest electric airplane idea, the E-Fan. But tucked inside the company’s huge chalet at the Paris Air Show was a small model where the two concepts meet — in 2050."

eTeknix Two For One
SilverStone Tundra TD02 AIO CPU Cooler

The build up to SilverStone's Tundra series of All-In-One closed loop liquid CPU coolers has been a very exciting one for me. While quite a few of news sites falsely reported that the Tundra is based on a collaboration between SilverStone and Asetek/CoolIT, the Tundra series is unique because it is entirely in-house. That means SilverStone designed everything themselves from the ground up. The model we have here today is the flagship Tundra TD02, the 240mm radiator based version, and this unit (like the TD04) uses an aluminium unibody and has some rather unique aesthetics. Aluminium and alloy is are the materials of choice throughout the majority of the product's construction making it both high quality and unique looking."

Gigabyte BRIX GB-XM11-3337 System

"Today we are reviewing the Gigabyte GB-XM11-3337 BRIX which is like Intel's NUC except Gigabyte have redesigned the chassis, changed the I/O, changed the BIOS and opted for some higher spec hardware. While Intel's NUC measures in at 1.55 inches thick Gigabyte's BRIX is much smaller at 1.18 inches thick. In fact the Gigabyte BRIX is just a generally more compact unit than Intel's NUC. Furthermore the wireless module is included as standard and USB 3.0 has been added too. Finally there is a DisplayPort and HDMI instead of two HDMI meaning you have slightly more flexibility when it comes to display outputs."

Patriot Memory Tab Flash Drive

"The new Patriot Tab USB 3.0 flash drive was designed with a tiny but durable aluminum chassis for excellent portability and features good transfer speeds. The product can be found in stores with 8GB, 16GB and 32GB storage capacities and a 64GB is in preparation too."

Not just for ultra-high-end products -- Schiit Audio's $99 Magni headphone amp and $99 digital converter were designed and built here. Magnepan, Tekton, and Zu Audio are all making affordable high-end speakers in the U.S. And this past Wednesday, Dan Laufman, president of Jade Design, announced the acquisition of Bob Carver, LLC, a manufacturer of tube amplifiers."
