ATI Radeon HD5450 HTPC Video Card @ Benchmark Reviews

Just when I thought they had finished cutting halves, ATI has taken the 40nm Cypress architecture to a new low. Low power, that is. In a brand new design, unlike anything they have released with this architecture, ATI is going after the Home Theater PC market with their heat sinks blazing. OK, I exaggerate; the Radeon HD5450 video card actually runs pretty cool, which is the point, really. It's silent, too, with a large and lovely red heatsink sitting atop the tiny GPU, sans fan. Follow along with Benchmark Reviews as we investigate an early sample of ATI's new standard bearer for low-power HTPC applications.

Noctua NF-P14 FLX Cooling Fan Review @ BayReviews.com

"Keeping the CPU cool is one of the most important part of any computer system. Keeping the air flowing in the case is also very important. Most CPU cooling fans are fast but also loud too. If you want to keep your computer cool and also quiet at the same time, then take a look at this Noctua NF-P14 FLX cooling fan."

Nitrox x835 Bluetooth Handsfree Car Kit Review @ Bigbruin.com

After spending some time with the Nitrox x835 Bluetooth handsfree car kit we have somewhat mixed feelings. Overall, the sound quality is decent and the battery life is really good. Its size and simple visor mounting clip make it easy to move from vehicle to vehicle. It is also a lot better than the built-in speaker phone feature on the iPhone.

iXBT Labs Review: Thermaltake Element G Mid Tower Case

"Thermaltake designed a stylish PC enclosure with original illumination. The rest is just an addendum to the exterior, but it doesn't mean that the rest is poor. The design of this PC enclosure and its technical solutions ranges from satisfactory to good. The case utilizes certain elements typical of lower-end solutions, but those might not be noticed right away, especially if you upgrade from a regular $50 case."

Crucial RealSSD-C300 SATA-III 6Gbps SSD @ Benchmark Reviews

Solid State Drive technology has helped transform computers into high-performance machines. Adding to the mania, 6.0-Gbps SATA-III bandwidth has cleared any bottlenecks that may have previously limited SSD speeds. Based on the Marvell 88SS9174-BJP2 SSD processor, the 256GB Crucial RealSSD-C300 becomes the industry's first SATA-6G consumer Solid State Drive.

NZXT IU01 USB Expansion Module

While this sounds complicated and impressive, think of it as a bare internal USB hub that allows connection of both internal and external USB devices.  As the world turns everything into USB, computers are often short on these ports, and this helps keeps you stocked with extra ports.  Check out our review for all the details.

The NZXT UI01 USB Expansion allows you to quickly and easily add more internal USB devices as well as setup a couple of other "external" USB devices without hogging extra USB ports on the outside of your machine.  A couple of uses could be internal wireless, Bluetooth, ReadyBoost or even a wireless keyboard and mouse dongle. . .

Windows 7 System Image Disc Recovery @ Benchmark Reviews

Very recently Benchmark Reviews published the Microsoft Windows 7 Upgrade and Installation guide, which helps erase the mistakes made by Windows Vista and introduces computer enthusiasts to the newly introduced O/S. Microsoft has enjoyed a successful launch for their Windows 7 Operating System, also referred to at Win7 or W7, and PCs have been made more productive and secure as a result. But like all good things that we receive, it's in our nature to protect and keep them. The best way to accomplish this is with a solid backup, and luckily Windows 7 offers a built-in Backup and Restore tool for creating System Images. By creating a backup file users can preserve their data, but with a System Image recovering the source disk can be helpful when replacing the drive with another. In this article, Benchmark Reviews guides users on the best practices for protecting and Recovering Windows 7 with System Image Restore Disks.
