NZXT Switch 810 Full Tower Chassis Review @
“Will NZXT’s first chassis from their all-new ‘Switch’ line-up prove a huge success with its XL-ATX motherboard support and extreme cooling potential?”

Toddy Smartcloth Screen Cleaner @ TechwareLabs
“Toddy is introducing their new Smart Cloth screen-cleaner, claiming significant improvements over the current state of the art. “But,” one may say, “don’t I already have a drawer full of soft cotton T-shirts and a handful of those microfiber things already?” This is a fair question, since a great many of our readers might say exactly the same thing. We show you why you should reconsider using your shirt and why the Toddy is worth your money.”

Antec VP450 Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
“The Basiq power supply series from Antec is targeted to users with serious budget restrictions. The new VP350 and VP450 models are the most entry-level power supplies offered by Antec, as they don’t have a PFC circuit or 80 Plus certification. Let’s see whether the 450 W model, which is sold for only USD 40, is worth considering.”

NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 featuring the ASUS VG278H Screen @
“Recently NVIDIA made the biggest change to their 3D Vision ecosystem, probably since launch, with the release of 3D Vision 2. A combination of the latest range of 3D displays with updated hardware and advances made in the driver enhance the experience.”

Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Full Tower PC Case @ TestFreaks
“I like cases with lots of room in them, I used to like small cases but I’ve since changed my mind on them as I like the room to move and route wires to keep them out of the way. Today for review I’ve got the Thermaltake Overseer RX-I PC case which is a full tower style that offers plenty of room for everything. Once you open up the Overseer case you’ll find more than enough room for everything in your system including large video cards and large coolers. The case offers excellent cooling abilities with two 200mm fans pre-installed for you, and a 120mm fan as well. The Overseer even comes with an integrated SATA hard drive dock so you can easily swap drives for transferring files of even booting from another drive. All in all I like the Overseer case a lot, it has features that I think many will appreciate in a case.”

SteelSeries SRW-S1 Review
“Today we look at the SRW-S1 from SteelSeries, a wheel designed around motion controls.”

Xigmatek MidGard II Case Review @ KitGuru
“Today we will be focusing on a new Mid Tower chassis from Xigmatek, the MidGard II. This is the second case released in the MidGard series, following up on the popular original MidGard model. Can the new MidGard II match the success of it’s predecessor?”

AZZA Fusion 3000 Review @ OCC
“The problem for AZZA and the Fusion 3000 is two fold from my perspective. First, it is trying to be everything to everybody and second, it places itself right in the middle of the most fiercely competitive price range for enthusiast cases. As a result, there is a lot of innovation and value being offered just on either side of the $180 mark. For example, the Fusion 3000 faces competition with the Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced, which is $20.00 less, includes three 200mm+ fans, and has nearly all the same amenities. Also at the same price point or even slightly less, it competes with entire Silverstone Raven series. Both of these include fans beyond the standard front intake or rear exhaust and are constructed with better fit and finish than the Fusion 3000. Because of this, the lack of included fans is a bit puzzling.”

VisionTek Radeon 7970 @ PureOverclock
“We’re looking at the VisionTek Radeon HD 7970. It’s a reference design, and comes a standard cooler and clocks that look to put the hurt on Nvidia’s current offerings. Is it strong enough to fend off the GTX 580? Framerates tell some of the story, but what about temperatures? Power consumption? Gaming value? Let’s take a closer look at the VisionTek HD 7970 and answer those questions for you.”

Zotac GTX 580 AMP2 3GB Edition Review @ HardwareLOOK
“ZOTAC’s quality GTX graphics cards have greatly improved in their performance and efficiency. ZOTAC made a stand as they proudly released their GTX 580, putting themselves on top of benchmarks since the GeForce GTX 480, which at one point was renowned in the industry. However, ZOTAC have push the bar even higher with the GTX 580’s big brother; the ZOTAC GTX 580 3GB AMP2 Edition which boasts a great performance boost over the normal GTX 580…”

OCZ Synapse Cache SATA III Solid State Disk @ Pro-Clockers
“OCZ has made the transition a little less painful by offering the same technology in the solid state drive. Eliminating having to upgrade your motherboard or having to install any other devices but the drive. The OCZ Synapse is the SSD we are talking about.”

Seagate Barracuda 3TB 7200RPM HD Review @
“When it comes to adding a performance-enhancing upgrade to your system, a good SSD can’t be beat, but storage capacity is an ever-growing need as well. There was a time when a 1TB drive seemed grossly (deliciously?) excessive for the average user, but these days anything less than 500GB seems woefully undersized. Even casual users who play a few games, shoot a little video here and there, and maintain a modest music library need lots of storage. HDDs continue to increase in capacity yet remain reasonably priced in light of solid state offerings, to the point that you can have yourself a multiple-terabyte drive for a couple hundred bucks or less. Today we’re taking a look at one such HDD, the Seagate Barracuda 3TB…”

Swiftech H20-220 Edge HD Liquid Cooling Kit Review @ Legit Reviews
“The H2O-220 Edge HD kit from Swiftech is solidly built, easy to install, and performs very well. The configurability of the H2O-220 Edge HD kit is nice as it allows the end user the flexibility to make the cooler fit their need, rather than the other way round…”

Intel 520 Series Cherryville 240GB SSD Review @ HCW
“We review the latest high end consumer SSD to hit the market – Intel 520 SSD Series otherwise known as “Cherryville”. Find out how it performs compared to the OCZ Vertex 3 and many others in our review at HCW”

Western Digital WD TV Live Media Player Review @
“The Western Digital WD TV Live media player packs a lot of features in to a little box. Couple this with a great price, and you have a very attractive device. It is remarkably easy to setup, has tons of connectivity options, has great file support, easy network integration with built in wireless, and it offers many useful apps.”

ASUS Rampage IV Formula BF3 Edition Motherboard Review @ Hi Tech Legion
“The Rampage IV Formula motherboard comes in two versions: a standard edition and one that comes bundled with Battlefield 3. The Rampage IV Formula X79 motherboard uses a standard ATX form-factor unlike the wider E-ATX Rampage IV Extreme and the shorter Micro-ATX Rampage IV Gene. Like previous Republic of Gamers Rampage lineup motherboards, the Rampage IV Formula is designed for ultimate gaming performance as well as comfortable extreme overclocking. With the new Extreme Engine DIGI+ II bringing precise fully digital power delivery towards the CPU, memory controller and system memory, the Rampage IV Formula is stable whether you are using a regular air cooler or you are an LN2 extreme performance tuner. The Rampage IV Formula supports up to Quad-SLI or CrossfireX setups natively and provides superb network performance via Intel LAN plus GameFirst for the ultimate gaming experience.”
