“The F.R.E.Q. 5 stereo gaming headset is the first headset from the Cyborg studio, and as such we were really interested to see if they could take their innovative design standards from their mouse range, into the world of gaming audio.”
Kepler is the successor to the Fermi range of graphics cards. It is touted as the world’s fastest GPU but NVIDIA also suggest it is the world’s most power efficient – a bold claim indeed considering how efficient (and fast) the HD7970 is. Speed and power however are not all that Kepler has in store.
If you are white and you live in North America, chances are that you are not a part of the visible minority. That is, unless you are studying engineering here at the University of Calgary, or you are a computer power supply. While the Faculty of Engineering is dominated by Asians and most PSUs are black, a little over a year ago, NZXT decided to be brave and decided to be different — they made a white power supply unit. The 80 Plus Gold certified NZXT HALE90 is certainly nothing short of impressive. It combines excellent performance, impeccable reliability, near silent operation, and top notch efficiency along with a sleek, unique appearance. So if the NZXT HALE90 is so distinguished from the competition, why did they resort to conformity and make the HALE82? As its name suggests, not only is it no longer over ninety percent efficient, it has also the same appearance as every other PSU. Hmm. So is distinguished excellence out, and blending in with the crowd back? Or is there more to the story? Read on to find out!

When it comes to SATA 6GB/s solid state drives or solid state drives in general there are a few names that come to mind, OCZ, Kingston and Patriot are just a few but Samsung is not really one of the them. For the consumer market Samsung gave us the 470 series drive and now they have entered the SATA 6GB/s segment with the 830 series. What is interesting about this drive is that it uses Samsung’s own controller, NAND and DRAM. Something we have not seen on any solid state drive that we have reviewed. The 830 series has rated speeds of 520MB/s read and 320MB/s write. Let’s see how this drive stacks up against other SATA 6GB/s drives that we have tested.
