HighPoint RocketRAID 2680 and RocketRAID 4320 SAS/ SATA Cards Reviewed at Overclockers Online

tn"HighPoint's RocketRAID 2680 is a nifty little card and does as it promises. It's affordable, and offers great performance.

But, if you have a bit of extra money burning a hole on your pocket, the RocketRAID 4320 is an excellent performance oriented card with the features to match. Coupled with an easy to manage BIOS system and software suite HighPoint has a winning combination." CLICK HERE for more!

Prolimatech Megahalems CPU Cooler @ Benchmark Reviews

prolimatech_megalems_cpu_cooler"With nearly twenty different LGA1366 kits tested in our Best CPU Cooler Performance LGA1366 - Q1 2009 article, one particular product stood out as an up-and-coming favorite. The Prolimatech Megahalems is a CPU cooler build from scratch using over twenty years of industry design experience and engineering.

Ghost Armor vs Best Skins Ever vs BodyGuardz G1 Shootout @ Reviewstash.com

http://reviewstash.com/viewtopic.php?id=1067 "With the inception of the HTC Dream / G1, we have also welcomed the scratches, scuffs, and daily fear of our precious devices losing their luster. We project a sort of "amychophobia" onto our shiny gadgets. Fortunately the magical "urethane film" that is so proudly slapped onto vehicles and helicopter blades has been adopted for G1 usage. Today, we are going to take a look at three different companies featuring three completely different G1 shields and find out which one is best for you."

Cooler Master Hyper N520 CPU Cooler Review @ Bigbruin.com

Overall, the cooler seems to be well made and so far the design intrigues me. The more compact size might be good for HTPCs or other computers with side panel fans that interfere with larger heatpipe towers. I just hope that the two 'smaller' fans can compete with the noise level and cooling performance of a 120mm unit. Cooler Master Hyper N520 CPU Cooler Review @ Bigbruin.com

Best CPU Cooler Performance LGA1366 - Q1 2009 @ Benchmark Reviews

Throughout all of 2008, I made it my mission to test every high-performance CPU cooler that Benchmark Reviews received. The Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad processors did their part to separate the cream of the crop from our large collection of LGA775 coolers. In our previous Best CPU Cooler Performance article, Benchmark Reviews retired the LGA775 platform from its testing duties and made room for the up-and-coming LGA1366 socket. It didn't take long to collect several CPU coolers designed for the Intel Core i7 CPU & X58 platform. This Best CPU Cooler Performance LGA1366 - Q1 2009 article focuses on a ! wide selection of performance-cooling products for overclockers. It's a mistake to think that any LGA775 cooler can do just as well with the new LGA1366/Core i7 platform; primarily because the size and location of processor cores has changed.

Samsung LN52A630 LCD TV Review

Whether or not the economic recession is here or if your current 27" CRT TV just died on you like mine, you may be in the market for an affordable TV that offers a little more than just the basics.  The Samsung A630 is just that.  It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the 750, 850 or 950 series but it doesn't cut any corners on the basics to keep the prices down.

Evolution Gaming Gear MP2 Mouse Pad Review at Overclockers Online

After rigorous testing (AKA weeks of gaming), the MP2 has left a good impression. Using my current mouse, the Creative Fatal1ty 1010, life was good as I effortlessly moved my mouse across the (nearly) frictionless cloth surface. As an avid gamer may be, he or she may want to look for the perfect mouse pad that suits their needs, may it be by texture (silky vs. "rough"), size, or even the surface art. Being that the MP2 offers all of this in a neat package, with the surface being "silky smooth", there should be no disappointment if you decide to purchase this product.

Chieftec HM-01B HTPC Case Review @ Bigbruin.com

Installing a system in the Chieftec HM-01B HTPC case was extremely simple, and the tool-less drive features may be the best I have ever used. Unfortunately not all aspects of the installation are tool-less, but it went quickly anyway. The internal layout gives you plenty of room for all the necessary components, with means to manage the wires neatly. Chieftec HM-01B HTPC Case Review @ Bigbruin.com
