Asus Strix GTX 950 Review
The GTX 950 is an Nvidia GPU based on the latest architecture known as Maxwell. Maxwell GPUs have been around for quite a while now and have earned a reputation for their performance and power reduction ability. Power consumption is something which has become a major factor while choosing a GPU. Lowering the power consumption will also lead to lower GPU temperature, which in turn could lead to better overclocking potential.
AMD A10-7870K Review
The A10-7870K is based on the same Steamroller cores as Kaveri. The codename “Godavari” was a codename to differentiate between the A10-7870K and A10-7850K while improving and refining what is essentially the same die used in the A0-7850K. There has been an increase in the stock CPU clock speed as well as an increase in the stock GPU speeds. Even though the A10-7870K is based on the same Steamroller cores used in the A10-7850K, the 7870K is more of a refresh than a rebadge.
Angelbird SSD2Go pocket SSD review
Solid State Drive, one of the biggest changes in storage options to date. Infiltrating the market slowly, but very effective. Now it has come to point where internal Solid State Drives are almost as known as the regular Hard Drives. We can talk about a hype in the current hardware market as many companies try to jump ship with this new evolution of storage solutions. Apart from internal solutions, there're also alot of companies offering external SSD storage like ADATA, Trascend, Lacie, ... and of course AngelBird as well! Probably not one of the most popular brands, but that isn't a reason not to look into their offerings.
Noctua NH-D15S and NH-C14S Review
Noctua CPU coolers need no introduction as the moment their name comes to mind, one is reminded of quality, performance and reliability. They have a number of coolers varying, in size, shapes but all of them have one thing in common. They are all geared towards achieving the best cooling performance. The two products of concern for this review are the NH-D15S and NH-C14S.
Kingston DDR3 Savage 2400Mhz Ram Review
Kingston's DDR3 Savage Ram was released for targeting a certain demographic of computer users, particularly those on a budget without sacrificing looks or even a heatsink. We received a 16GB Kit of Kingston DDR3 Savage Ram which has a shiny red heatsink with the classy HyperX logo on it.
MSI GTX980 Gaming 4G review
With the GTX980, Nvidia brings us their most high end card based on the new Maxwell architecture which should reduce power consumption by quite a bit. In the past year, Nvidia has been able to conquer a huge chunk of AMD's market with the release of their new graphics cards. While we're still waiting for AMD to perform a counter release, Nvidia already snared numberous of new buyers looking for more performance.
Kingston DDR3 8GB Value Ram-1600Mhz Review
Kingston Value Ram as the name indicates isn’t high profile memory but is marketed as budget ram for the general consumer.It is the cheapest of all the other available options manufactured by Kingston and in terms of hierarchy it’s placed at the lowest tier. We received a single 8GB DDR3 Value Ram stick from Kingston which runs at 1600Mhz at the stock timings of 11-11-11-28-39-2T,1.5V. This is pretty basic ram and the first thing that might strike the eye of a consumer would be the lack of a heat-spreader. Some may feel that this would limit overclocking to a certain extent while others may desire a heat-spreader just for the added look and colour that it brings to the stick of ram, matching their cabinet colour scheme. This 8GB stick of ram is perfectly priced around the 65$ mark making it a decent purchase keeping in mind competitive product-pricing. This 8GB stick of ram has other lower rated speeds at which it is capable of running. Although coming with CAS 11 it can be run at lower timings by lowering the frequency of the ram.

Kingston’s newest entrant’s trump-card is its attractive pricing, while offering pretty good performance. Does the Fury live up to these claims? Let’s find out!
Intel i7 5960X Haswell-E Review
Today, we're reviewing a new beast in Intel's extreme line of CPUs, the i7 5960X. Excluding all server related CPUs, this should be the first real 8 core CPU for desktops. Due to the active hyperthreading technology, this chip offers 16 threads to be utilized on some heavy multithreaded workloads. With the support for DDR4 memory and the introduction of a new strong chipset, it does update all current socket standards in almost every way.
