In my mind, all motherboards are created the same. You buy one for your processor and your RAM. However, this is one time when I’m wrong… Today I have Abit’s AN-M2HD which features the media moguls favourite; HDMI.
When the G84 and G86 cards were released, reviewers around the world posted their reviews, giving generally quite mixed opinions. However, although there were several positive reviews of the 8600GT cards, the GTS ones received very little good publicity due to their mid range pricing with budget performance. Today I have with me the Galaxy 8600GTS OC; perhaps this one can reverse the stigma.
Having found the 8600GT cards from MSI to be great value for money, I was intrigued when asked to review Galaxy's overclocked version of the same card. How would it perform? And can it be overclocked even more? Let's find out.
Coolink have featured on XSReviews since 2006 and haven’t failed to impress. Today I have their CPU cooler, the Silentator which is a number substitution away from being Fatalonety’s favourite…
Antec; the champion of the biggest cases I’ve seen. Today, instead of their usual approach of adding centimetres, I have their Sonata III which is a more standard sized chassis toted as silent. Perhaps even mulnaz?
Media center PC’s are all the rage these days, with people swapping out their stand-alone DVD players for slim PC’s. Unfortunately, a PC doesn’t have its own screen like a DVD player. And that’s where SilverStone come in, or should I say SoundGraph?
Over the last couple of years OCZ have been gradually spreading their influence throughout the hardware market. Beginning at memory they moved into the cooler and PSU game and now even graphics cards with OCZ branding have found their way into our stores. Today though I am testing one of their hefty PSUs, the GamXstream 1010w; lets give it a go.
Tagan PSUs are not necessarily the most revered in the world of hardware enthusiasm but their flashy looks and LED fans have always drawn a crowd. Today I have with me the Silver Power 600w from them which promises excellent performance with good looks to boot. I wonder how it will do.
After testing the 120mm NF-S12, the 80mm offering based on the same technology seemed like a sure-fire hit. Let’s find out.
We had the pleasure of meeting part of the Revoltec team at Channel Expo earlier this year and were surprised that we hadn't come across their stylish gaming peripherals before. However, we later learned that due to delays their release date was due for June 07. Now June has arrived we have received the first of several review samples from Revoltec; The Fightpad Advanced. Let's see how it holds up.
