LiteHawk QUATTRO NEON Quadcopter Review @ ModSynergy.com
"The word drone has become a popular one worldwide. We live in an exciting generation where innovative technologies such as these are available to us to use. These unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) are just one of the many technologies that we as regular citizens can enjoy. We even have examples of large companies such as Amazon and DHL using these types of aircraft to deliver goods.
Today the LiteHawk QUATTRO NEON Quadcopter gets reviewed by ModSynergy!"
Noctua S Series CPU Cooler Review @ PC Perspective
"Noctua took a unique design tactic with the NH-D15S and NH-C14S, refining existing designs for expanded compatibility with a variety of motherboards. Both coolers feature the aesthetics common to Noctua coolers - chromed bodies with tan and brown fans. They also feature all of the design aspects we've come to expect from Noctua - nickel-plated copper base plate and heat pipe assemblies, aluminum radiators, and attention to detail with respect to their construction. The coolers performed well under stock processor speeds, keeping system temperatures under control and maintaining system stability. The coolers faultered under overclocked conditions though. The NH-D15S was unable to keep the Haswell-E system stable at all when overclocked, resulting in general instability and excessive temperatures. The NH-14S faired better with the overclocked Haswell-E, maintaining processor stability with throttle-free operation. While both coolers performed adequately, there are better offerings available at the price-point of these units."
ECS Z170 Claymore Motherboard Review @ Legit Reviews
"Earlier this year, it was reported that Elitegroup Computer System (ECS) was no longer going to market its own branded motherboards, instead they were going to focus on OEM motherboards. While OEM system builds has been ECS’s main focus for many years, they have released products for the DIY crowd, with high end features while keeping the price down. With increased pressure from the top tier motherboard manufacturers, these budget minded motherboards often get overlooked. However, if you look at the features ECS builds into their motherboards, these budget boards are sometimes a great option. Take for example, the ECS Z170 Claymore motherboard, here we have a motherboard designed for the latest Intel Skylake processors, that integrates some of the latest technology. This motherboard includes support for the latest technology that the Intel Z170 chipset permits; DDR4 memory, PCIe Gen 3, M.2, USB 3.1 and overclocking support. "
ADATA SP550 SATA III (120GB, 240GB & 480GB) SSD Review @ Tweaktown
"ADATA's SP550 gives us our first look at Hynix 16nm TLC toggle flash. Powered by SMI's 2256 and an SLC cache layer, does this new SSD deliver the goods?"
Patriot Viper 4 DDR4-3400 8GB Memory Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
"Earlier this year we took a look at our first Viper 4 DDR4 memory kit from Patriot. That kit was a quad-channel kit designed for the X99 platform. Now that Intel’s Z170 chipset is here we have dual-channel DDR4 which we’ve seen to be more stable at higher frequencies. Patriot has sent us one of their latest Viper 4 DDR4 kits which is an 8GB dual-channel kit that runs at 3400 MHz! With official timings of 16-18-18-36 at 1.35V the PV48G340C6K kit is set to perform quite well on Z170 systems. On top of the fast speeds the memory kit features a custom-designed heatspreader that is black and red that will match many popular motherboards out there. Let’s get this memory installed and see what it can do!"
Corsair Gaming STRAFE Silent RGB mechanical keyboard @ KitGuru
“Corsair has produced some fantastic looking keyboards in the last year. Adding to that line up now is a variant on its highly praised STRAFE design – the Silent. This board features the same RGB backlighting, media keys and attachable wrist rest, but with modified mechanical switches to make them that much quieter when you are typing. "
Interactive Fit for Fan guide - will the cooler fit on this motherboard? @ OCInside.de
"Since the year 2001 OCinside.de followed the question, which CPU cooler can be used for which motherboard. With this interactive fit for fan guide one can find out exactly this with a few clicks, by moving the desired CPU cooler virtually on the selected motherboard. You can not only see if CPU cooler fits on the motherboard and how much space is left for the remaining components, but also listen to the fan sound, check the current price and read a review. Now also with Intel LGA1151 motherboards and many new CPU coolers !"
Rantopad FF Gaming Mouse and MAX Aluminum Pad Review @ Madshrimps
"The FF Gaming Mouse from Rantopad is clearly not in the same league as the other high-end products we have tested in more recent reviews, but comes with good quality materials and is shape is quite comfortable to be used for many hours at a time. While most manufacturers nowadays like to leave the mouse performance customization via software, FF Mouse allows adjustment via two switches on its bottom, for Polling Rate and DPI. At the heart of the mouse we will find the proven Avago A3090 sensor, which can drive the DPI up to 3500."
NZXT GRID+ V2 Digital Fan Controller Review @ Benchmark Reviews
"The NZXT Grid+ V2 is a voltage regulated, 30W digital fan controller fits in practically any case (it’s about the size of two SSDs stacked on top of each other) and adds digital fan control capability for up to eight fans across six separate channels. Join Benchmark Reviews as we take a quick look at the capabilities NZXT’s GRID+ V2 digital fan controller will bring to your build."
Windows 10 Privacy - Everything You Need to Know @ Hardware Secrets
"Windows 10 has received a lot of criticism for collecting personal information. Rumor has it that Microsoft is copying user’s files and information. These rumors have no basis. Microsoft is collecting basic data which they call telemetry from machines running Windows 10. This collection of data is not new. Microsoft has been collecting data and sending it home in every operating …"
QNAP TS-451+ & QTS 4.2 @ techPowerUp
"The TS-451 was released last year, and it was a milestone for QNAP since it featured a new external design. Today, we will evaluate its successor, the TS-451+ with an upgraded CPU and the ability to take up to 8 GB of RAM."
Cooltek Jonsbo UMX2 Mini-ITX Case Review @ NikKTech
"With more and more people turning towards small PCs to cover their needs it's no wonder that the popularity of mini-ITX and mini-ATX compatible cases has been on the rise all over the world for quite some time now. What i never understood completely was the reason as to why PC case manufacturers didn't design small ATX compatible PC cases for people who want the extra features offered by such mainboards without having to worry about having a midi or full tower on their desks. HTPC cases have pretty much offered the solution to that for a long time now but judging by their current popularity it's safe to assume that the majority of consumers still prefers the "traditional" tower design when out to get a new case. Cooltek is one of the very few manufacturers out in the market currently who have managed to fit a full sized ATX mainboard inside small towers which up until today people thought were only compatible with mITX and mATX models. One such tower design PC case is the aluminum UMX2 by their Jonsbo brand which is here with us today."
Tt eSPORTS ISURUS PRO Review @ Vortez
"The interesting design aesthetic was created by the Level 10 team, and the headset promises great bass from the 13.5mm neodymium drivers along with good noise reduction from the silicone ear grip, the in-line remote also has a microphone built in. Bundled in with the headset is a convenient carry case which can hold the headset while you move around. On paper the recipe looks perfect so we move on to the testing."
Patriot Viper V360 Gaming Headset Review @ APH Networks
"Patriot's first entry into the gaming audio market: How will the Viper V360 fare in our audio auditioning?"
Nanoxia Deep Silence 1 Rev.B Chassis Review @ Hardware Slave
"Nanoxia are a name you should know, and their Deep Silence chassis already has a following out there in modders land. With that said, it’s hard for a designer and manufacturer of system chassis and other cooling components to make a name for themselves in the shadow of the mainstream corporations."
Crucial BX200 SSD Review (480GB/960GB) @ The SSD Review
"Crucial has always been quite aggressive with their value driven strategy in the SSD market and it has resulted in success for many of their products. This has led to their most recent product launches of the MX200 and the introduction of a new entry-level product line earlier this year with the BX100. The BX100 was set out to be a revised step into this market. After initial failure with the Crucial V4 line, they knew they had to improve big time if they were going to try again. This time around, it was a success. By contracting with Silicon Motion, Crucial was able to release a reliable and great performing entry-level product.
Nearly a year later, things are getting tougher and there is still much more market potential. Even though SSDs are getting much cheaper, many still haven't switched over to even entry-level SSDs due to their cost/GB ratio compared to HDDs. As you may have noticed, companies seeing this issue are working hard on entry-level products in order to get everyone up to speed as soon as possible, including Crucial. So, through the use of Silicon Motion's latest controller, the SM2256, and 16nm Micron TLC NAND, today we see their latest response to the market, the Crucial BX200."
