Check out our CES 2012 video playlist below!

Now time for some affiliate news!

CES 2012 – GIGABYTE Displays New Tablets, Laptops and More! @ FutureLooks
“We stopped by the Gigabyte suite at CES 2012 to see what new hotness they are bringing to North America, confirming that they have certainly come a long way since those earlier convertible tablets. They’ve got everything from gaming laptops to enteprise class tablet PCs.”

Corsair Individual Sleeved Modular PSU Cables @ Legit Reviews
“Corsair usually makes a ton of noise when they launch new products, but for some reason the company silently launched a new product line on Facebook yesterday that went unnoticed by most tech sites. Corsair has announced individually sleeved modular cables! We bumped into Corsair at the FX GamExperience down in Dallas, Texas today and got a chance to check out the cables in person. Read on to check them out!”

2012 CES: Cooler Master @
“We visited with Cooler Master at the Bellagio after they hosted one heck of a party the night before. Cooler Master is celebrating their 20 year anniversary with a plethora of new products for 2012. The PR team first showed us their upcoming heatsink known as the TPC-812 which utilizes a new technology called Vertical Vapor Chamber. We were told that Cooler Master is one of only two companies in the world that are capable of producing this technology.”

CES 2012 – ASUS Shows Off PadFone, Transformer Prime 700 Series, and New 7-Inch MeMo Tablets @ FutureLooks
“Asus has been keeping pretty busy on the mobile front, so we decided to check in with Gary Key and the rest of the Asus team at CES 2012.”

Enermax Briskie Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo Review @
“One of the most recent additions to Enermax’s peripherals range is the Briskie wireless keyboard and mouse bundle, a low cost product which is aimed at mainstream users.”

ASUS P9X79 Motherboard Roundup @ PureOverclock
“ASUS is known for producing a wide range of motherboards to suit just about any preference, need, or budget, and today we have three motherboards from their new X79 lineup for review. Each of these boards share many similarities but also some distinct differences, and rather than splitting them up into separate reviews, we’ve decided to compile them all into one big roundup. It’s a one-stop shop for some of the high-end ASUS X79 motherboards.”

XFX ProSeries 1250 W @ techPowerUp
“XFX is well known for their graphic cards but for quite some time they are also into the PSU market with two series called classic and Pro. Today we will test the flagship unit of the Pro series which with 1250W capacity will easily power even the most demanding systems.”

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU Heatsink Review @ APH Networks
“Today’s review unit, the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU cooler is just that. What does “EVO” stand for? Evolution, which allows us to assume that it evolved from something. That’s right, this heatsink succeeds the older Hyper 212 Plus. And again, the word “Plus” gives us another assumption that it was added — pun intended, of course — onto its original name from an even older heatsink, the Hyper 212. So how does this heatsink compare? Without further adieu, let’s jump in!”

NZXT Switch 810 Tower Case Review @
“At CES 2012, NZXT launched a new full tower case they’ve dubbed the Switch 810. NZXT is calling this a “hybrid” tower design, suitable for extreme air cooling or complex liquid cooling setups, and offering users a choice between maximum airflow or noise reduction. With up to ten 120/140mm fans, top 360/420mm and bottom 140/240mm radiator support, pivoting internal fan mounts and removable dust filters, NZXT is definitely taking the cooling aspect of this case seriously.”

Noctua NH-C14 CPU Cooler at Modders-Inc
“Noctua’s brain trust has unleashed upon the masses, a CPU cooler that looks to appeal to several different user markets. Reshaping the heatpipe orientation into a “C” orientation, and placing the fins parallel to the motherboard… has Noctua caught lightening in a bottle again? Let’s look on and find out.”

Coolermaster CM690 II Advanced USB 3.0 @ ocaholic
“With the CM690II Cooler Master shows a steel midi-tower that comes with a lot of useful features as well as a decent design. The mostly black outside is being decorated by two small, chromed bars. Also the manufacturing quality is on a good level and the CM690 II Advanced USB 3.0 even comes with a feature you wont find anywhere else, the external SATA X-dock (HDD dock). About this and a lot of other things we will write on the following pages.”

Lian Li PC-90 Case/Chassis Review @ TechwareLabs
“So once again Lian Li has changed up the computer case design while leaving the exterior of the case unchanged. Just when you think there isn’t much else you can do with a computer case, Lian Li comes in and WOW’s you once again. Check out why we feel the PC-90 should be on your watch list for a new case for its features and game changing design.”

Antec EarthWatts Platinum 650 W Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
“The EarthWatts Platinum is the latest power supply series from Antec, and will be available in 450 W, 550 W, and 650 W versions, coming with the 80 Plus Platinum certification. This new series will reach the North American market next month; we were able to get a sample before its official release. Let’s see if the 650 W model is a good option.”

KFA2 MDT X4 – GTX580 1538MB GDDR5 Review @ Kitguru
“While Nvidia prepare to release their next series of cards we are looking at a custom GTX 580 board from KFA2 which can support up to four screens via a single card, with the promise of excellent gaming performance across three screens. It ships in an overclocked state and incorporates 3 fans for improved cooling efficiency. Today we will test across a single and three screens. Is it worth the money?”
