CM Silent Pro HybridThe Silent Pro Gold series being one of Cooler Master's best selling power supplies, which they now have decided to take it one step further. Entitled the Silent Pro Hybrid, the new series adds a feature that many will find to be pretty helpful when the load and heat begins to build up. A fan controller is thrown into the packaging to allow the user to dial in the desired speed of the cooling fan for the power supply. So, if noise becomes an issue while computing, simply knock it down a notch.

Cooler Master Storm TrooperToday, Cooler Master is introducing a case under the Storm branding, the likes of which offers several features no other cases in its class does. Support for multi-rad setups, up to fourteen storage drives and 4-way GPU configurations are just a few of the goodies that we will be looking at during this review session. Should that somehow not be enough then there is still the styling to mention, tastefully done in a way that isn’t over-the-top and is subtle enough to be used as a workstation, but ideal for that all-out gaming rig.

Raidmax BlackstormBlackstorm! I'm going to come straight out and say it: it's an attractive case. I believe I used the word "sexy" when I pulled it out of the box. It's a pretty cool name too, which is for the most part quite accurate: as you can see, it's black.

ASUS have released a number of top quality sound cards the past few years under the Xonar line, catering to the Audiophiles as well with the Essence sub-models, having released the ST, STX and Xense versions. However, during CeBIT this year ASUS showed off an upcoming fourth Essence model dubbed "Essence One", which seemed to somewhat slip under the radar. Link, review snippet and a couple pics after the jump...

Patriot WildfireLike many of the other drives we have tested, the Wildfire is also pushing the read and write times significantly above the 500MB/s mark. In order to do this the Wildfire has taken advantage of the SandForce SF-2281 processor, as well as some pretty fast Toshiba NAND memory. The Wildfire is currently on the market in three different sizes which would be 120GB, 240GB and 480GB. We've been sent the 120GB model so follow along as we see just how raging this Wildfire is.

Silverstone EC03With every aspect of computing moving at razor fast speeds there is no reason for our external data not follow. That is the reason we are seeing new external connections like USB 3.0, and the soon the Thunderbolt as well (already available on some Mac laptops). But in order to implement such connections you have to determine if it is worth it to upgrade the entire system which already feature what you are after, or add on to what you are already using. If the latter seems a little more feasible, then SilverStone has a device for you: the EC03 , a compact USB 3.0 PCIe add-in card and front panel USB 3.0 ports.

Gigabyte Z68XP-UD5The Z68XP-UD5 is obviously based on Intel’s Z68 chipset and is designed to take your Sandy Bridge processor to the next level. Designed with Intel’s own iGPU, the user can overclock it as well as the CPU. Gigabyte upgraded the Z68XP-UD5 to include an HDMI connection, something the original Z68X-UD5 did not have. These few features along with Gigabyte’s transition to an all-black PCB, along with the SLI and CrossFire, support the new and improved Z68XP-UD5 looks to be a winner.

Silverstone DS321External hard drive enclosures are a dime-a-dozen in this day and age, with more and more of them hitting the market. Many of them are single drive units that are good for a quick way to store or access your data externally, but this type of enclosure is not fitted for all of us. With the size of today’s hard drives (3TB at time of writing), losing even one could be a devastating ordeal. This is when our next product for evaluation comes in. The SilverStone DS321 enclosure can house two 3.5” SATA drives, provides you with the option to run them in RAID, topping it all off by connecting through the ultra-fast USB3 bus.

Lian Li PC-C60Lian Li knows this and are making more and more home theater cases as the needs of the end users change. Their latest HTPC case is the PC-C60, offering a lot of features which most cases of this type do not. To start with it has USB 3.0, room for several hard drives, more than enough cooling/air flow and the ability to support full-size ATX motherboards. All that, and you still get the Lian Li quality, and aluminum construction, that we have grown to love.

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.

Cooler Master Gemini II S524Proper cooling of computer components is one of the most important procedures to consider when building a new rig. The first thing that comes to mind when it comes to cooling is making sure the CPU is operating at a satisfactory temperature, but many seldom go any farther than that. What about extra cooling of your RAM, North Bridge or even the phase power MOSFETs of your motherboard? Yes, these things should be cooled as well. Whether it is to extend your overclocking ceiling or to help prolong the life of your components. Cooler Master has adding the Gemini II S524 to their line of CPU coolers and it helps achieve all of those
