Eagletech Neptor Foldable Bluetooth Keyboard @ LanOC Reviews
"Eagletech may be one of best kept secrets at our LAN parties, generously providing many of their Zen headsets under the brand name Orion as prizes. As we saw at CES this past January, Eagletech has a wide variety of portable accessories, the majority utilizing Bluetooth, in store for 2013. We’ve received the first of many teased during a private showing in Vegas this winter, the Neptor Foldable Bluetooth Keyboard, just in time for an editor hungry to take productivity on the road."
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M Mobility Performance Testing @ PCPerspective
"Enthusiasts looking to take their PC gaming addition on the move will likely find the MSI GT60 and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M a perfect fit. Just don’t expect a thin and light design or long battery life – those just aren’t in the cards for these high-performance designs quite yet."
ASUS Z87-DELUXE Motherboard @ Hardware Secrets
"The ASUS Z87-DELUXE is a high-end socket LGA1150 motherboard targeted for the "Haswell" processors (fourth-generation Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 processors). Its main highlights include the presence of the next-generation Wi-Fi standard, the IEEE802.11ac, which supports a maximum theoretical transfer rate of up to 1 Gbps, two Gigabit Ethernet ports, Bluetooth 4.0 interface, and more."
The 50 Best Booth Babes of E3 2013 @ Legit Reviews
"E3 has just ended and we are still trying to get our hearing back and feeling back in our legs from walking around for 3 days. While we are sifting through our notes with conversations with NVIDIA, AMD, Microsoft, Sony and the likes, we thought you might like to see what we thought were the best looking assets from this year’s E3. Yes, sir, it’s that time to take a look at the Top Fifty Booth Babes of E3 2013!!!"
Nanoxia Deep Silence 2 @ techPowerUp
“The Nanoxia Deep Silence 2 is a simpler version of the Deep Silence 1, with a noticably lower price tag and the aim to offer the same core functionality. We take the heavy case for a spin to see what had to change for the case to be offered at a very interesting 30 Euros less than the number 1 of the DS series."
Case Mod Friday: ReactorMod @ ThinkComputers.org
"Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have a builders ReactorMod build. Here is what he had to say about it: It’s a modded Chieftec BX-03 case. I wanted to make it look like it’s quite old and kinda shabby. I was thinking about this build for quite a long time, so I managed to collect some cool stuff that I’ve found on a nearby scrap yard (e.g. switch or steel sheet that I used to make the radiator cover). I also used some spare parts that I had lying around."
NZXT Phantom 630 Case Review @ KitGuru
"Built as a trimmed-down version of the award winning Phantom 820, does NZXT’s Ultra Tower Phantom 630 have what it takes to compete in a circa-£150 case market? "
NETGEAR XS708E ProSafe Plus 10GbE Switch @ Benchmark Reviews
"The cell phone and Ethernet are 40 years old this year and both are omnipresent in our digital lives. Like many elements of today's consumer tech, Ethernet was developed at XEROX PARC and then commercialized elsewhere. Ethernet came to the PC in 1982, with a bandwidth cap of 10 Megabits per second; most consumers and small businesses are now operating at 1Gb/s speeds. That will change soon to 10Gb/s, if the NETGEAR XS708E 10GbE Switch is any indication. Its eight RJ-45 ports are designed to interface with common Cat 6 wiring, and it also has one SFP+ port to handle fiber optic connections. Benchmark Reviews brings you an inside look at a break-out offering in the NETGEAR ProSAFE Plus Switch line, which brings 10GbE connectivity down to the masses. "
NZXT Sentry Mix 2 Fan Controller and NZXT Grid Fan Hub @ PureOverclock
"Today we are looking at a new arrival from NZXT. It is a successor to the Sentry Mix, and appropriately labeled the Sentry Mix 2. The new Sentry Mix 2 from NZXT along with its continuation of customizable lighting features, also brings with it a new look. Also on the test bench today is another new arrival from NZXT, it’s called the NZXT Grid. This is a fan hub that sports LED lighting, and is designed not only for the NZXT family of controllers, but can also be powered by your power supply’s 4-pin Molex connection. Let’s take a closer look.”
alienvibes EP02 Elite HD Noise Cancelling Headphones @ NikKTech
"Sight and sound are arguably the two most important human senses and so naturally people like to judge most things based either on how they look or how they sound (well ok some things like the McLaren MP4 or the Lamborghini Aventador obviously combine both). Because of that it comes as no surprise that whatever is available out there in the market from clothes, shoes, accessories and up to bikes and cars focuses primarily on looks and then everything else. When it comes to certain devices however like headphone sets things are quite a bit more complicated since not only do you have to take into account how they look but you also need to take into account how they sound and with so many offerings in the market that's not very easy. Worry not however since this is where we come in and so today we will be taking a look at the EP02 HD headphones designed and manufactured by a new player in the field called alienvibes."
Noctua NH-U12S and NH-U14S Single Tower CPU Coolers Review @ Pro-Clockers
"We have tested just about every cooler Noctua bought to the market and have yet to be disappointed. Their newest coolers are the NH-U12S and the NH-U14S which are similar models with only difference in sizes. Both are single tower units that are designed to be able to give you good cooling as well as give you a nice aggressive overclock if those are what you are looking for."
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Review @ RWLabs
"The ZOTAC GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost features two key improvements over the reference model; the first is this card utilizes their advanced Dual Silencer thermal solution and it also features improved performance out of the box via higher clock frequencies."

Seagate Enterprise Performance 10K HDD V.6 (Savvio 10K.6) SAS Enterprise HDD Review @ TweakTown
"The Seagate Enterprise Performance V.6 offers users the sequential performance of 15K HDDs in a small form factor. Enhanced power consumption, standard encryption and other new features round out the latest enterprise HDD offering from Seagate."
And the Winner of Next-Gen is: PlayStation 4 (Unless Microsoft Fixes Things) @ Techgage
"With both Microsoft and Sony having laid everything out on the table at E3, there’s no better time than the present to peruse it all and see which one comes out ahead. Well – as the title of this article suggests, one of these companies has some work to do if it wants to win the next round of the console war."
Mushkin Enhanced Ventura Plus Series 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review @ Madshrimps
"The Ventura Plus is a new brand of USB 3.0 Flash Drives from Mushkin Enhanced and comes with good transfer speeds, while maintaining and affordable price. The drive has a small aluminum chassis which is great for compatibility purposes and in the back we can attach a lanyard for easy accessibility and transport."
ASUSTOR AS-604T NAS Network Storage Server @ Benchmark Reviews
"Everybody needs a NAS, I'm convinced. Maybe if I described what the modern NAS has become - a Private Cloud, then everyone would agree. Years ago, when Benchmark Reviews started reviewing NAS servers, they were made to sit on your network as a sort of file server and you used proprietary, vendor supplied backup software. Today, as we all know, everything is wide open. Access anything, anywhere, with any application is not just a dream anymore. Hardware is still important, but the depth and breadth of the software is becoming more of a differentiator. The ASUSTOR AS-604T NAS Network Storage Server uses a familiar hardware platform - Intel Atom and a Linux distro, but the design team didn't stop there. There are some fundamental improvements that were ready to be solved from a slightly different perspective. Join in, as we see how this new 4-bay device compares to its competitors. "
