“The NZXT Phantom 410 Mid-Tower includes room for the larger video cards, and sports an acrylic window for your viewing pleasure, plus water cooling features with room for a 240mm/280mm radiator, and a modular design. The NZXT Phantom 410 also gives consumers a few distinct color choices, so there are some very interesting options and features here for a case that is very well priced at only $100. Let’s see if NZXT can continue the quality and innovation with the Phantom 410 Mid-Tower chassis.”
AMD’s Radeon HD 7000 series is out in full force now and even with the NVIDIA 600 series launching, it’s still getting a lot of attention. As is typical with video card releases, manufacturers like to make their own designs and subtle changes and release various different cards based off of the same GPU. Here at Benchmark Reviews, we’ve received the MSI Radeon HD R7870 Hawk video card and we are prepared to put it to the test. With an unlocked BIOS and a digital PWM, the MSI R7870 Hawk begs to be overclocked. Let’s find out just how fast it can go.
“Today on our test bench we will be looking at two new products from ROCCAT. Firstly we have a brand new mid-range gaming mouse, the Savu. Featuring a unique 4000DPI optical sensor and ROCCAT’s Easy-Shift[+] system the Savu looks to set new standards in its price bracket.
We will also be taking a look at the Taito gaming mouse pad. The Taito comes in three sizes, the mini, mid and king and is also available in two heights, 3mm or 5mm. We have the mid-sized 5mm version to test with the new Savu mouse.”
“The EVGA Z77 FTW motherboard is compatible with the latest 28nm Ivy Bridge processors and is designed with overclockers in mind. The EVGA Z77 FTW has been packed with features in a slightly slimmer than EATX form factor at 10.3” wide. Onboard buttons, dual CMOS reset buttons, triple BIOS support, DEBUG LED, and extra CPU as well as PCI-E power connectors are just some of the conveniences available for performance tuners. Five PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots are available for some Quad-SLI action, utilizing a PLX PEX8747 bridge to circumvent the PCI-E graphics 16-lane limit of Ivy Bridge processors. A pair of extra SATA3 6Gbps ports via a Marvell 9182 controller as well as a pair of USB 3.0 ports via an ASMedia ASM1042 controller is available onboard for additional high-speed storage options.”

“BitFenix has a very nice case on its hands with the Shinobi XL. The Shinobi XL has loads of features, room for the largest of hardware, and can pack a fair bit of water cooling options out of the box without mods. The front I/O panel having 4 USB 3.0 ports along with the SuperCharge port is really nice…”

A couple of years ago, I never would have recommended a Samsung camera to a person who was serious about photography, but things have changed. The NX200 is proof that Samsung is getting serious about photography and they have really stepped up their game with the NX200. This camera body is not much bigger than a compact non-interchangeable lens camera (body only) and with a pancake lens, it could easily fit in your pocket, bag or backpack.
For many years ARCTIC have been creating some of the finest cooling solutions. Today we are looking at their latest Accelero Xtreme III triple fan cooler which has support for Nvidia’s flagship GTX680 graphics card. We know this cooler will annihilate Nvidia’s reference cooler, but can it possibly outperform the stunning triple slot DirectCU II TOP cooler features on the overclocked Asus GTX680 TOP?
Today we will find out if the cooler is worth an eye popping $120.
