SilverStone Tundra TD03 A-I-O Liquid Cooler Impresses At Vortez

"During our benchmarks the TD03 performed well in our extensive cooling league and demonstrated that it can give other rivals a run for their money. Stock and overclocked results when used on Intel’s high-end Sandy Bridge-E were admirable but noise levels were perhaps on the loud side, especially when overclocked since the cooling fans move up to 2500RPM (100%).

Not only do we like TD03 for its build quality but we found it was very easy to install too and the mounting system can be confidently relied upon – components are again, very good in their quality and easy to use."

Hitech Legion Check Out The Wicked Precision PS08 Budget Mid Tower From SilverStone

"I do not mind the non-availability of tool-free mounting as I always prefer secure mounting over a swift install. I am not a reviewer that grants points for how convenient the installation was for me but I do consider how effective the installation will be for average and beginner users. A lot of manufacturers simply toss in the tool-free mounting feature, inconsiderate of whether it secures well or whether it fails. I’m glad Silverstone was more sensible in their approach and opted for a much more secure installation method."

Thermaltake Urban S71 Chassis Finds Sweet Spot @ TweakTown

"Costing the same as the Chaser A71 is nice to see, and it really gives users a very different way to see the design now that we have seen the Urban S71. Both being averagely priced at $139.99 in most locations makes this another chassis that really delivers a fully featured full-tower chassis, that doesn't break the magic $150 mark, where most users have as a cutoff for what they will spend on a chassis.

As much as I liked what I saw with the first chassis like this, the Urban S71 is a stunning looking, full featured solution that is well worth the investment and one that can grow as your needs and desires change over time."

LegitReviews Graphicgasim Over EVGAs GTX 760 Superclocked With ACX Cooler!

"When it comes to visual appearance the EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB Superclocked also gets a big thumbs up. The triple black color scheme and ACX cooler give it a fairly aggressive look that is not too bold or overpowering. The EVGA ACX GPU cooler has just three copper heatpipes and that concerned us at first as the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked w/ ACX cooling had five. After running this card we discovered that it idled at 25C and never hit 70C even with our extreme overclock. With temperatures like that you don't need to worry about GPU temperatures and even when overclocking we left the fans on auto!

The EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB Superclocked w/ ACX runs $259.93 shipped and is backed by a 3-year warranty. We have to say that it is worth every penny! It looks like enthusiast community knows that though and the EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB w/ ACX ($249.99) and the EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB Superclocked w/ ACX are both frequently out of stock. If you wanted to spend right around $250 on a graphics card, this is the one we would get today."

Thermaltake NiC C5 Cooler On Vortez

"Thermaltake have addressed a key issue which many enthusiasts are concerned with – memory clearance. The new NiC C5 does not overhang any of the memory slots on the motherboard and as a result means that a memory kit of any height can be used in conjunction with this cooler. This is great, because it removes any such limitations – low profile memory kits are mandatory for many other CPU coolers which overhang the slots.

In all our performance tests we found the NiC C5 to be a great CPU cooler. We tested both extremes of low and high settings on the fan controller but since this controller has a variable knob and not a two-switch state, we are able to tweak the fan speed accordingly, finding the balance between noise and performance."

Thermaltake eSPORTS Theron Mouse On HardwareHeaven

"The performance of the Theron is excellent and given its RTS target market we tested it extensively with StarCraft 2. We found that the accuracy of the Theron was spot on and with a click heavy game like StarCraft 2 the OMRON switches performed very well. The switches on the Theron have a life cycle of 50 million clicks so it will certainly stand up to anything we can throw at it."

Thermaltake Chaser A71 Chassis Review On TweakTown

"The Chaser A71 is very solid in all aspects. With the panels off, the chassis does not flex much at all, the tool-free clips on the ODD bays are very secure and kept the DVD drive locked tight. The removable bay covers on the front don't rattle and are easy to access and remove from outside the chassis, I mean no matter where I want to look at the way the Chaser A71 was built or holds on to components, things are right as rain, and exactly what you should look for in a chassis.

When it comes down to the all mighty dollar, and we have to get back to the pricing, I still feel, maybe even more so, that the Chaser A71 from Thermaltake is feature rich, aesthetically appealing, a pleasure to work with, and for $139.99 that most people are listing it for, I not only think it is money well spent, but I strongly urge you to go out and at least look at one - the images are close, but they just don't do this case the justice it deserves in my humble opinion."

Legion Hardware Examine Thermaltakes Urban S71 Chassis

"The Thermaltake Urban S71 is clearly going to be an attractive option for those who prefer a more minimalistic design. We really appreciated the attention to detail, build quality and overall polish of the case. So, if you’ve made it past that first hurdle of looks, the next question is how does the Urban S71 fare in terms of value? With the quality tool-less design, sound damping that does the job very well, plenty of room to move and great cable management, we believe this case is well worth purchasing. For those hoping to build a professional looking no fuss kind of rig, the Urban S71 makes for a perfect future-proof base."

EVGA GTX 760 Superclocked With ACX On LanOC

"The reference GTX 760 left a little to be desired both in its cooling as well as styling. EVGA did a great job improving on both of those things. I think the ACX cooling of the EVGA GTX 760 Superclocked w/ACX is going to look great in any build without drawing to much attention as well. Even better yet was the boost in performance that I saw over the stock speeds with the GTX 760 Superclocked w/ACX’s overclock. The overclocked numbers inched close and sometimes beyond the performance of the GTX 670, at a considerably lower cost. Speaking of cost, this card is going to run you $259.99 at launch, $10 more than the reference card. For $10 you are getting much better cooling, styling, and a big boost in performance."

EVGA GTX 770 Superclocked With ACX On TweakTown

"The GTX 770 2GB represents some really good value, especially when you throw overclocking into the mix. Of course when you add a superior cooler like the ACX one we've seen today from EVGA, the value jumps up even more as we can see firsthand how much stronger overclocking is when we move away from the reference cooler."
