EVGA GTX 780 Classified ACX Graphics Card Review

Whether it’s a motherboard or graphics card, when EVGA adds ‘Classified’ to the name, it usually means their best available option in any given product line. The GTX 780 Classified edition is no different, as it has a higher base/boost clock than any of their other GTX 780 models. Decked out with EVGA’s new ACX (Active Cooling Xtreme) cooler, all the latest NVIDIA technologies, and the promise of performance worthy of the Classified name, let’s get this party started and see what EVGA has in store!

Noctua NH-U12S Heatsink Review

Noctua is known for quiet fans and some would say an unorthodox color scheme. They’ve managed to power past their color choices though and have built a reputation as one of the premier cooling manufacturers on the market today. The heatsink we’re looking at today is in their silent series, the Noctua NH-U12S. Read More

ADATA 16GB XPG DDR3-2600 CL11 Memory Review

We recently published the ADATA XPG DDR3-2800 memory review which consisted of a memory kit based on single-sided Hynix MFR IC. Even though memory clock is high and modules are overclocking really good, overall performance on those modules is lower than expected. Today I wish to present ADATA XPG DDR3-2600 also based on Hynix MFR IC, but it’s double sided and gives us 16 GB total. Read More

MSI N760 HAWK (GTX 760) Video Card Review

Today we have a chance to review yet another GTX 760. This time, it is the MSI N760 HAWK. If you remember from GPU generations past, the HAWK versions of cards, to me, are the little brother of the Lightning from MSI. This usually offers more overclocking centered features such as voltage monitoring, and a beefed up PCB to help get the most out of the core. Let’s take a look at what this version has to offer.

Sleeping Dogs (PC) Review

Sleeping Dogs is a game that almost did not come to fruition. Fortunately Square Enix picked up the game and with the help of developer United Front Games, re-tooled it to try to reach the high standards set by GTA4. In this review I will discuss the story, gameplay, graphics, and display some performance numbers with my AMD HD7970. Read More

MSI Z87 Xpower Motherboard Review (with LN2 results)

There comes a time in every overclockers life when you just want to go out and get the most expensive darn thing you can…just because… even though advice from the forums is to shy away from such a move. Today makes me count my blessings that a couple years ago Overclockers.com gave me the opportunity to write reviews for the Front Page. Fast forward those couple of years to today and I have in my possession the most expensive darn motherboard on the Z87 platform at this time, the MSI Z87 XPower. The features list is long and its power phases are more robust than anything I have seen. This should be a good one people. Let’s dive in and take a look! Read More

Cooler Master CMStorm Pulse-R Headset Review

Attention Grabber Blurb

When I started to work on this review, I had already had a great day, and the UPS man showing up with a mysterious box from Coolermaster made it even better. The box inside was mysterious, the attached NDA made it even moreso (NDA will have been lifted by time this review is out), and to top it all off, it was supposed to be flashy and sound good at the same time. Will Coolermaster have made the mistake of flash over substance? Will I ever figure out how to use the front 3.5mm outputs on my case again? Come inside and read to find out! Read More

Thermaltake Chaser A71 Full Tower Case Review

The Chaser line of cases from Thermaltake have been one of their most popular chassis options over the past couple years. All previous cases Thermaltake has offered under the Chaser name have been classified as mid-tower in size, but today we get to see the Chaser in it’s first attempt at a full-tower design – the Chaser A71. I’ve had the opportunity in the past to work with a couple of the earlier Chaser offerings, and came away impressed with both the design and price. So, lets have a look at this full-tower Chaser A71 and see if it continues to impress! Read More
