Asrock Fata1ty Gen3ASRock are back at it with a new motherboard, this time based on the Intel Z68 chipset. Being built on Intel’s latest chipset is not the motherboard’s claim to instant fame, but it is labeled as the first motherboard to offer Generation 3 PCIe bandwidth. As of now there aren’t too many video cards that can push the 2nd PCIe bandwidth offering to its edge. So, it is a matter of being prepared when the time comes because it is coming, sooner or later.

Crucial m4Crucial hit the pavement running when they released the C300 series of solid state drives, the first available for the (then) new SATA III 6Gb/s interface.

Then at the beginning of 2011, when Intel finally launched a chipset with an integrated SATA III controller in their Cougar Point chipsets, many manufacturers felt it was time to let the new bus really stretch its legs. Crucial was one of those companies, releasing the M4 series of solid state drives. What kinds of improvements number wise does the new model have over the older model? Read on.

Silverstone FT03Silverstone has a real winner with the TJ-07, but they are looking to repeat the success with the Fortress FT03 mATX tower case. The FT03 is nothing like the TJ07 when it comes to a PC case. Yes, the quality and the SilverStone name is stamped on it. It is made of aluminum like the famous case is but that is where it stops. The FT03 is aimed at the individual that wants a stylish case possibly to build a nice HTPC from.  Many us of will think of the typical desktop horizontal case when looking for the ideal home theatre system case.

Cooler Master Hyper 612 PWMOur friends at Cooler Master are at it again with a few new coolers coming to market this year. The first is the Hyper 612 PWM. Following the success of the Hyper 212 Plus, Cooler Master has decided to add another cooler to the Hyper lines. In this case the 612 PWM is much larger than the previous 212 Plus and boast more heat pipes, larger surface area across the fins and a new fan mounting assembly which all leads to more weight.
