CM Storm Scout Gaming Case SGC-2000-KKN1-GP @ Benchmark Reviews

cm_storm_scout_front_page_3-news"What differentiates a serious Gaming PC from all the rest of the PCs in the world? To me, it's all about graphics performance, but I know there are many who would disagree. They would say it's a combination of factors, including appearance and some extra functionality needed to survive the physical gaming environment.  Cooler Master has created a new division called CM Storm to address the specific needs of gamers.  Their latest product, introduced at CEBIT in early March, is called Scout: The True Gaming Case, and is aimed at the mid-market enthusiast.The first thing you notice about the CM Storm Scout Gaming Case is its appearance, particularly the swooping, integrated handle that graces the top surface. That's an obvious nod to the LAN Party setting, but what about the rest of the case? The Scout has several other features that are aimed at the gaming market, as we'll see.  Follow along with Benchmark Reviews and let'! s see if the Scout (SGC-2000-KKN1-GP) has enough gaming DNA to survive the ruthless natural selection process that takes place in this very demanding marketplace."

Vizo Propeller Dual-Fan Card @ Reviewstash.com

toptilts-news"With summer quickly approaching (for all of us northern hemisphere folk at least), your rig is going to need all the cooling it can get without you having to crank up the costly air conditioning (or spend exorbitant amounts of money on cooling solutions). Your video card is going to be hit especially hard if you're planning on heavy gaming, overclocking, and graphical usage, leaving you with a few options - either purchase a more dynamic chassis, throw in some high RPM fans (everyone loves the pleasant roar of a jet engine), fiddle with expensive (and time intensive) water cooling, or merely install an expansion slot based fan. Today we are going to take a look at one such device - the 'Vizo Propeller Dual-Fan Card'." CLICK HERE to read more from Reviewstash.com!

Thrustmaster Run-N-Drive PC/PS3 Wireless Gamepad @ Benchmark Reviews

thrustmaster_run-n-drive_wireless_gamepad_pc_ps3"Since testing computer hardware products is a PC-centric task, I've never wandered very far from what I know. But after writing my editorial Year In Review: 2008 Computer Hardware Industry Failure it seemed wrong not to taste the forbidden fruit... so I purchased a Sony PlayStation 3. Aside from the PS3 system, which quickly received an Editors Choice Award-winning Solid State Drive upgrade, I also purchased nearly two-dozen games and a Blu-ray remote control. I soon discovered that my racing skills were lacking... and I needed an edge. Enter the new-and-improved Thrustmaster Ru! n'N'Drive wireless gamepad, model 4160527. Now unplugged and built around the 2.4 GHz wireless radio band, this PC/PS2/PS3-compatible controller takes the Sony SIXAXIS to the next level and adds an optical wheel and under-belly triggers."

Evolution Gaming Gear: Mouse Pad MP3 Review at Overclockers Online

evologo"After a few more weeks of gaming and using Photoshop, the MP3 has served me well. Using my current mouse, the Creative Fatal1ty 1010, life was good as I effortlessly moved my mouse across the (nearly) frictionless cloth surface. Also, depending on how polished or dirty your desk surface is depends on how much the mouse pad will slip around. It doesn't move on glass surfaces whatsoever and so to move it you will have to completely pick it up and place it where you want it. Wood surfaces are decent; it will move a little if you give it a nudge, but if you intentionally try to adjust it, it will do so very easily." CLICK HERE to read more from Overclockers Online!

OCZ Vertex SSD RAID-0 Performance @ Benchmark Reviews

ocz_vertex_raid-0_performance1"Lower power consumption and heat output are the least impressive benefits of Solid State Drives. The real payoff is in the practically instant response time and high-performance throughput. Once SSDs could outperform their HDD counterpart, it was all about price and capacity. Adding up to 64MB of Elpida DRAM to the buffer has permanently solved stuttering problems, making raw performance the last bottleneck. An Indilinx 'Barefoot' internal controller commands the bank of Samsung K9HCG08U1M DRAM modules, allowing a single OCZ Vertex SSD to offer impressive capacity with unmatched performance. But what if we put two Vertex SSDs into a striped RAID-0 array? Benchmark Reviews tests the speed and bandwidth of two OCZSSD2-1VTX120G SSDs against!  the fastest storage products on the planet in this OCZ Vertex SSD RAID-0 performance article."
