Memorial Day Remembrances
"Americans are today gathering to honor those who have courageously given their lives to defend their country and protect its freedoms after a weekend of remembrance services. Among those who visited cemeteries over the weekend was Nancy Waring of Cumming, Georgia. Mrs Waring knelt down and kissed the gravestone of her husband Army 1st Lt. Gerald Paul Waring, who served during the Vietnam War. He lost his battle with cancer last year. The widow also visited the grave of her son, Coast Guard Lt. Brian Scott Waring at Georgia National Cemetery. The 40-year-old was also an Army veteran and died less than a year before his father."

Heaven Media Two For One
Corsair CX600M Power Supply

"That doesn't mean all low cost PSUs are bad, far from it and for some time now a number of manufacturers have offered a good base level of quality at minimal cost, such as Corsairs CX series. Now looking to mix the decent quality, low cost CX specification with the usually more expensive modular design Corsair have released the CX-m series of PSUs and today we look at one of the top models, the CX600M."

Logitech G700s Mouse

"Logitech are now releasing an updated version of their award winning G700, the G700s which vastly changes the chassis material as well as the sensor used. Today we have this new hybrid wired/wireless model on our test bench to review."

Bjorn3D Two For One
XFX R7790 Black Edition 1GB

"Today we have the new XFX take on the HD7790 model with the R7790 Black Edition. As some of you may know, “Black Edition” means “overclocked” and a pretty awesome cooler as well, so let’s open this thing up and see what it can do."

Diamond HD7790 Video Card

"The HD 7790 we have today is admittedly a mainstream model which as we know are the real money makers in graphics products due to the nice price/performance ratio. We will also admit that we don’t really get revved up with mainstream cards normally simply because we like fast cards. That being said, 7790 cards has been quite a surprise for as they have been very overclockable, while also delivering very decent gameplay on most titles at HD resolutions."

EA To Scrap Online Passes
"Electronic Arts will be dropping Online Passes from all of its future games, citing lackluster player support, according to a report by Venture Beat. EA Senior Director of Corporate Communications John Reseburg revealed the news. "Yes, we're discontinuing Online Pass," he said. "None of our new EA titles will include that feature."

Madshrimps Two For One
PowerColor Radeon HD 7790 TurboDuo 1GB

"The new Radeon HD 7790 TurboDuo 1GB card from PowerColor features overclocking from the factory and a custom cooling system with two fans and a heatsink with a single heatpipe. The fan speed profile was tuned for achieving good temperatures and by raising the clocks even further from Catalyst Control Center, we can squeeze the last performance drop from the card."

Cooler Master NotePal A200 Laptop Cooling Pad

"The new Notepal A200 Laptop Cooling Pad from Cooler Master comes with a 2-fan solution, one fan controller and two extra USB 2.0 ports. The pad can be also set at an angle, for more comfortable typing and the top brushed aluminum finish gives the product an overall professional look."

PC Stats Two For One
ECS Z77H2-A2X Black Edition Motherboard

"Today PCSTATS has a real treat for you - the ECS Z77H2-A2X Black Edition Golden motherboard! Every metallic surface on this board is gold plated so it's got quite the 'bling' factor going for it."

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD4H Motherboard Bug Update

"There is a major conflict / problem with Gigabyte's GA-Z77X-UD4H series motherboards and the LSI SAS3041E-R SAS/SATA RAID card. It goes something like this - when a videocard is installed in the PCI Express x16 or x8 slot, the LSI card installed to the PCI Express x4 slot won't be recognized by the system. There are only two workarounds that PCSTATS could find... We're posting this to save fellow users some troubleshooting this issue."

Cooler Master CM 200 Case

"Now before you cringe at the sight of a mainstream chassis you should know that this tiny gem sports some really cool features like allowances for watercooling, MicroATX motherboards, seven storage drives and long video cards like the AMD Radeon HD 7990."

Lan OC Reviews

"One of the biggest down falls to having a smaller form factor case and motherboard has always been lack of room for aftermarket cooling solutions, namely water cooling. Cooler master has released the N series brand of cases, a new line that hopes to tackle the water cooling conundrum that many small form factor users are faced with. The N series is touted as a mainstream computer case aimed at the masses, a simple, cheap solution that will house all of the gaming essentials. And as an enthusiast, it might not be your next rig, but it could very well be a candidate for your next LAN rig or for a budding gamer friend."

Hardware Secrets

"The N200 from Cooler Master is a mini-tower case supporting microATX and Mini-ITX motherboards, coming with a terrific suggested price, USD 50. Let's see if buying this bargain is worthwhile."

Windows 8.1 Update Free
"Microsoft Corp's forthcoming update to its personal computer operating system will be called Windows 8.1 and will be available later this year free to existing Windows 8 customers, the marketing chief for the Windows unit said on Tuesday. The world's largest software company has been touting the update, previously code-named 'Blue,' as a series of improvements to the Windows 8 software, launched in October, which has not been as popular as it had hoped."

$5,900 Electric Bike
"Oh yes, I need one of these. “One of these” is the Specialized Turbo, the first electrically assisted bike from the crew in Morgan Hill, California. It’s been on sale in Europe for a year, but pesky federal laws that poorly define the line between bike and motorcycle made it too fast to sell in the States."

Zotac GTX Titan AMP! Edition Video Card

"Do you think the regular NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan is too slow? Need a bit more speed in that delicious expensive single-GPU package? Then Zotac has just the products for you. The ZOTAC GeForce GTX TITAN AMP! Edition is, according to Zotac at least, the fastest single GPU card and the fastest GTX Titan available right now. While we can’t vouch for that we can tell you that it is a GeForce GTX Titan that has been overclocked almost 10% right out of the box. What does that mean for performance?"

Silicon Power Armor A80 1TB USB 3.0

"The Silicon Power Armor A80 is designed to provide protection against water, drop, pressure, and dust with its rugged design. The unit manages to provide excellent protection and performance without adding much bulk. Available in storage ranges from 320GB to 1TB, it is one of the best external hard drive available on the market."

Wi-Ex zBoost SOHO DataBlast YX550-VLTE-AWS

"The big mobile network operators spend a tremendous amount of money advertising how their coverage and speeds are better than their competitors. If you believed everything you saw on TV, you would have to think that in fairly populated areas of the USA that there would be no chance of a dropped call or slow download speeds. In reality, this is not the case, and the best marketing can't do anything for technology that can't possibly be everywhere you need it."

Alienvibes W601 2.2 Channel Speakers

"Alienvibes is back with a range of speakers intended for use with PCs and portable media players... We will be checking out the W601 speakers, which is a 2.2 channel system has some impressive features that include dual subwoofers, a wireless remote, SD/USB MP3 playback, and two inputs from sources such as a computer, tablet, smartphone, or other audio source."

Dragon Steel Mods Two For One
Noctua NF-S12A FLX 120mm Cooling Fan

"If you’ve ever built your own system you know that you need good fans and one such company that makes them is Noctua as if you’re an enthusiast you know this. If you’re looking for quiet and reliable fans that are on the cutting edge of cooling technology, then you go with Noctua plain and simple. Today for review I have one of the latest fans from Noctua, the NF-S12A FLX, the FLX means Flex or flexible meaning that you can control the fan speed and it gives you three choices 1200rpm, 900rpm or 700rpm depending on what your uses are for the fan. These make a great choice for either CPU air cooling, liquid cooling or even just case cooling."

Noctua NF-S12A ULN 120mm Cooling Fan

"Up for review today I’ve got another cooling fan from Noctua, the NF-S12A ULN, and yes the fan is very similar to the FLX one that I just reviewed. The fan looks exactly the same, but the main difference is the speed of it. ULN stands for Ultra Low Noise and the fan runs at 800rpm but can be slowed down to 600rpm. This fan is truly silent, it won’t add any additional noise to your system but, thanks to the design, it still moves a lot of air. If you’re looking for a way to keep your system running as quiet as possible then this is the fan you need…. "

Pure Overclock Two For One
MSI Z77A-GD65 Motherboard

“On the test bench today we have the MSI Z77A-GD65 Gaming Edition Motherboard for the Intel 1155 socket platform. We have seen the well matured version of the vanilla MSI Z77A-GD65 perform above the average standard and actually received our Editor’s Choice award during its initial release. The new Gaming Edition has spruced up its aesthetic appeal but that’s not all. MSI has given this board a new set of software and hardware to meet the demands of today’s gamers. Let’s put it to the test and see if it lives up to its predecessor.”

VisionTek Data Fusion PCI-E 240GB SSD

“Today we’re looking at another SandForce SSD, but this one is very special as it’s essentially two drives in one that feature a RAID 0 configuration. The name of this little juggernaut is the VisionTek Data Fusion 240GB PCI-Express. It acts like a drive but looks like a card since it plugs directly into the motherboard, bringing a whole new level of speed into the mix. The Data Fusion drive is bootable, and with claims of 800MB/s and 100,000 IOPS, such speed is typically expensive, but this PCI-E SSD currently retails for only $380 for the 240GB version. Sounds very tempting to us.”

Techgage Two For One
Gigabyte G1.Sniper 3 Motherboard

"The motherboard market is loaded with options targeted squarely at overclockers and the general enthusiast, but finding a board – much less an entire series – dedicated to gamers is difficult. GIGABYTE realized that back in 2011, and thus its G1 series was born. In this article, we’re taking a look at the company’s current Z77 offering, the G1.Sniper 3."

Logitech G500s Laser Mouse

"We recently tested the least-expensive member of Logitech’s new G line, the G100s, and it impressed us enough to earn one of our Editor’s Choice awards. Today, we have a look at the higher-tiered G500s. It’s an altogether different animal compared to its less-pricey sister, so let’s find out if it impresses just the same."

Ninjalane Two For One
Noctua NF-A14 FLX & ULN 140mm Fan

"Cooling enthusiasts will be familiar with the name Noctua as being one of the premier companies dedicated to creating high quality cooling gear and takes pride in knowing they are also the quietest. We have reviewed a few Noctua fans in the past and found them to be extremely well crafted but felt a little underpowered when compared to the larger and more powerful counterparts. Therein lies the compromise, you can have a powerful fan that moves a great deal of air or you can find something with a less aggressive cooling profile where noise control is a primary factor.

Cooler Master NotePal A200 Laptop Cooling Pad

"Heat has been a difficult problem to solve in the mobile computing space and as we have seen in the desktop world as processors get more powerful so does their heat generation. To combat this heatsink manufactures have gone to great lengths to make coolers more efficient and quieter. In the laptop world things are not so easy and to combat heat two things have occurred. First is more efficient hardware that generally runs slower than the desktop counterpart and second, more efficient heatsinks. Of course, it doesn't matter how well your heatsink works unless you can get proper airflow and, with a notebook, that is often easier said than done."

Corsair AX860i 860W Power Supply

"Corsair has become known for their power supplies over the past couple of years. Almost everyone you talk to these days will list a Corsair power supply in recommending a power supply for a build. Corsair’s top line of power supply line is the AX series and today we are taking a look at the AX860i model. This 860W power supply features digital (DSP) control for the best possible voltage regulation, an 80PLUS Platinum certification, full modular design and monitoring and customization through Corsair’s Link software. I have heard nothing but great things about this power supply so let’s take a look…"

be quiet! Shadow Rock TopFlow SR1 CPU Cooler

"I have to admit something; I hate top down air coolers. I can’t put my finger on what it is about them I so dislike. Perhaps it’s simply that they don’t tend to perform very well. Or maybe it’s just their strong dissymmetry that rubs me the wrong way. Whatever it is, something inside tells me to take a tower cooler over them any day. And so it is with great fear and trepidation that I present another air cooling product from German manufacturers, be quiet!, the Shadow Rock TopFlow SR1. Please follow along as I attempt to prove my instincts wrong., or right, as we find out how this cooler performs."

X-51A Hypersonic Aircraft Sets Record
"The U.S. Air Force's $300 million, nine-year test program for a hypersonic plane ended on a high note this week, when the last of its X-51A Waverider vehicles made the longest flight of its kind. The success was made sweeter by the fact that it followed last year's high-profile failure. "I believe all we have learned from the X-51A Waverider will serve as the bedrock for future hypersonics research and ultimately the practical application of hypersonic flight," Charlie Brink, X-51A program manager for the Air Force Research Laboratory Aerospace Systems Directorate, said in a news release."

OC Inside Two For One
ASRock FM2A75 Pro4-M Motherboard

"The AMD Socket FM2 platform has an excellent price/performance ratio and is especially very interesting for those who like to build a less expensive PC. ASRock top this with this AMD Trinity motherboard and offers for less than 60 EUR a micro-ATX motherboard with three PCI Express slots, one PCI slot, five SATA3 ports, one eSATA3 port, Gigabit LAN, 7.1 sound with optical output, USB3.0, USB2.0 and in addition to the optional COM port even an optional LPT port, which can be useful e.g. for a HTPC, to control a small 20x4 LCD. Today we have tested this ASRock FM2A75 Pro 4-M Socket FM2 motherboard with the AMD A10-5800 K processor and as usual at overclocked to the limit."

Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme 256GB SATA3 SSD

"Today we have a Xtreme fast SSD for review at, the Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme 256GB. The Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme 256 GB SSD is based on the Marvell 88SS9187-BLD2 controller like the previously tested Crucial M500 480 GB SSD and reached an amazing high performance with the new Plextor firmware 1.03. So let us continue with the SSD comparison and the review of the Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme 256 GB."

Hot Hardware Two For One
AMD Radeon HD 7990

"Today marks one of those funky occasions when you've probably been aware of the "new" product we're going to show you for quite some time. And we're not talking about a few days or weeks here either. In fact, it was all the way back in December of 2011, when AMD introduced the original Radeon HD 7970, that we first dropped hints that the dual-GPU powered Radeon HD 7990 was in the works. We dropped those hints back then because AMD dropped them on us in the lead-up to the Radeon HD 7970's release. That little tidbit alone should give you a good idea as to how long the Radeon HD 7990 has been simmering in AMD's kitchen."

Samsung Galaxy S4

"Samsung has done an exceptional job the past few years building interest and recognition for their Galaxy-branded smartphones. The fervor isn't quite on the level of Apple's iPhone launches, but if the attendance of their "Samsung Unpacked" event at Radio City Music Hall and the buzz on-line for today's introduction is any indicator, Samsung has tapped into something big and earned a cult following, very much like Apple has over the years. And the sales figures back this up, of course, all of which show Samsung dominating the Android-based smartphone market."

TechPowerUp Two For One
Corsair CX Series Modular CX600M 600W PS

"Corsair decided to enrich their mainstream CX series with new units that feature modular cables. Today, we will test the fresh CX600M going for only a few more bucks than its non-modular CX600 counterpart. The "M" specification will most likely have many users pick the new unit over the non-modular version, despite the slight price increase."

AMD Radeon HD 7990 6 GB Video Card

"Figuring out how the new HD 7990 "Malta" performs and whether its scaled down cooling and power connector requirements come at a cost will be a fascinating challenge. The card itself costs $1000 and will be available in stores within roughly two weeks."

X-bit labs Two For One
MSI FM2-A85XA-G65 Motherboard

"MSI mainboards look great, have very convenient layout and use only high-quality components. These boards are energy-efficient, fast and work well with default settings. However, there are quite a few things in their BIOS that could use some extra work and the boards do not keep the power-saving technologies up and running during overclocking. Everything we have just said is true for the main hero of our today’s review."

ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 Motherboard

"This mainboard from ASRock has almost the same accessories bundle, design and technical specifications as other top Socket FM2 mainboards out there. Moreover, it can boast a variety of unique advantages that its competitors do not have. Read our review for details!"

Crucial M500 480GB SATA3 SSD
Our friends from OC Inside have a review of the 480GB SATA3 Crucial M500 SSD, this SSD might be big enough to give up your mechanical drive completely.

"Since this week the new M500 SSD from Crucial is available is in the stores and this SSD has not only an enormously high performance, but now also offers a capacity close to the 1TB at a price where some other fast SSD starts with the half size. Today we have the smaller Crucial M500 480 GB SSD CT480M500SSD1 with integrated 256-bit AES encryption tested and extensively benchmarked. Crucial declares both the M500 480 GB SSD and the Crucial M500 960 GB SSD CT960M500SSD1 with the same read performance of 500 MB/s and with the same surprisingly high write performance of 400 MB/s. In the review we will see if the SSD is able to achieve this performance and in the SSD benchmark summary we will compare the new Crucial M500 SSD with the previously tested hard disk drives and solid state drives."

TweakTown Two For One
AZiO Levetron GH808 USB Gaming Headset

"Sound quality testing was overall a pleasant experience we found with the added extra of the vibration function not only being a really cool extra, but a serious feature that can be turned on when wanted to great effect. The overall level of sound quality is pretty good for the most part. With a decent amount of detail and timbre to the sound, but only just making it past the red line of disrepute regarding the high-end, that many headsets hover around."

SMART Storage Systems CloudSpeed 500 SSD

"The Guardian Technology Suite, covered in more detail on the following page, allows SMART Storage Systems to take typical consumer-grade MLC NAND and extend its lifetime to 15,000 P/E cycles. This is a 3x-5x improvement over normal MLC NAND. This allows the CloudSpeed 500 to withstand 1.2 full random drive writes per day (DWPD). This important specification underlines one of the key advantages of the CloudSpeed 500 over client SSDs."
