Noctua NF-A14 industrialPPC-24V-2000 IP67 PWM Fans Review

Cooling/VGA & Other Cooling by stefan @ 2016-05-05 read/post comments()

The NF-A4 industrialPPC 140mm fans are very well built and can be used for both industrial and PC chassis applications; the 24V versions are ideal as case fans because they produce little to no noise at half the voltage they receive inside a computer chassis, but if you are also planning on replacing the fans on the water cooling radiators, you have to get the 12V models. The 12V NF-A4 industrialPPC 140mm PWM fans will be ran at higher speeds in order to cool the radiator fins properly, while keeping the noise levels as low as possible thanks to the integrated technologies. read more

InFocus M560 Smartphone Review

Mobile/Smart Phones by stefan @ 2016-05-03 read/post comments()

By featuring the low-powered MT6753 octa-core mainstream SoC, InFocus M560 can deliver enough performance for most applications, while maintaining a very good battery life. Unlike other smartphones in the same segment, the M560 model is equipped with a high-quality FHD screen, a gorgeous unibody back chassis, one 13MP camera which is able to take good photos and the 2GB of RAM gives it the ability of running more applications at once. Manufactured and designed by Foxconn, we also get a very good build quality and thanks to the dual trays we can have installed two nanoSIMs and a microSDHC card for extended storage at the same time. read more

SteelSeries Siberia 350 Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2016-05-02 read/post comments()

The Siberia 350 headset is very easy to set up and work with thanks to the Engine 3 utility, while the volume controller is placed on the wire. If we look at both Siberia 650 (Elite Prism) and 350, we can see that the latter is a “lite” edition of the more expensive model, which does feature a less thick padding system, no analog interface and also less options we can configure throughout the software. However, the most important settings like the adjustable headband, DTS headphone, retractable unidirectional microphone, RGB illumination are available so we can enjoy the product with the same quality but at a much lower price. read more

G.SKILL TridentZ 32GB 3200MHz DDR4 (F4-3200C15D-32GTZ) Memory Kit Review

Memory by stefan @ 2016-04-28 read/post comments()

The 32GB dual-channel Trident Z kit from G.SKILL is carefully binned to work at the rated 3200MHz and comes with a XMP 2.0 profile, which should be compatible with the latest high-end motherboards. While the Supermicro C7Z170-OCE board did not have any issues recognizing the profile (with a small voltage glitch which was setting the voltage at 1.45V instead of the rated 1.35V and needed to be set manually) and successfully booted the system, our previously tested BIOSTAR boards could not handle the 3200MHz profile, not matter the settings we have tried, so before purchasing such a high-speed kit, make sure your CPU/mobo combo can really handle it. read more

Edifier M1370BT 2.1 Bluetooth Speaker System Review

Audio/Speakers&Amps by stefan @ 2016-04-25 read/post comments()

Right after taking a look at the overall product dimensions and specifications, we lowered our expectations for the audition stage; after checking out some YouTube music videos though, the system did surprise us with the overall quality at decent volume levels, which would make it a very good replacement for TV sets which do have sub-par integrated speaker systems. read more
