p8h67M EVOOur next motherboard may be the one that ends up going into your SFF build or upgrade. The ASUS P8H67-M EVO reminds us of the P8P67 Pro but in a smaller package, and aimed at the audio/video buff instead of the performance hungry. It's those specs and black PCB, that when combined with blue and charcoal gray slots, really make a motherboard like this stand out.

asrock p67In order to begin we have our first board that is squarely targeted at the budget minded individual. The ASRock P67 Pro3 is the middle of the road motherboard, still offering quite a bit in the form of technology and features, but does not go over the top as to keep it at an affordable price point. Offering a powerful V8 + 2 power phase configuration, support for the unlocked multiplier 'K'-series processors, USB 3.0 and even SATA III. Anyone looking at the Pro3 will definitely get a solid motherboard with a whole lot of bells and whistles.

asus p8p67The new P8P67 is the ideal motherboard for someone looking to bring new technology into their homes, without having to mortgage it in the process. The P8P67 is built around the new P67 chipset, designed for the Sandy Bridge processors, and offer some of the same features as the P8P67 Pro (whose review you can find here). Equipped with four DIMM slots, ability to run Crossfire and RAID, the P8P67 certainly is a nice motherboard to build a system around. Lets take a look at it in detail.

zalman z9Although what most of us know Zalman for is their cases, and that is exactly what we will be revealing to you here today: the new Z9 and Z9 Plus. Zalman has decided to announce to the world a new gaming case for the budget minded individuals, as not all of us have the coin to drop on the high end components, yet we are still after something that looks the part. These cases come packing a lot of functionality, and a Z-shaped mesh front that is quite pleasing to the eye.

ASUS P8P67 ProThe first motherboard we will take a look at is the P8P67 Pro, which will be ASUS’ performance motherboard for users on a budget, or in other words a top-shelf mainstream board. In the lineup it falls just under the Deluxe but above the EVO. The P8P67 Pro holds a few similarities to the P7P55 Deluxe we reviewed here, looks is the only thing they have in common. The new board sports a new chipset for Intel's also new Sandy Bridge processor: the P67 North Bridge. So, what does that mean for the consumer? Well, the PCIe 2.0 is increased from 2.5GT/s to 5GT/s, meaning the USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gb/s connections will not hog up a lot of bandwidth since there is more to share. That is just the tip of the iceberg though, read on to find out more as we review this brand new ASUS motherboard utilizing Intel's brand new chipset and Core i5 2500K CPU!

nzxt phantomNZXT have now released a new case called Phantom, whose styling somewhat reminds us of their Lexa S but with a more futuristic styling and larger size. The Phantom is aimed at the full gamut of DIY builders: gamers, enthusiasts and overclockers. Basically this is for anyone that is looking to build a high-end machine using water-cooling or large heatsinks to attack the heat put out by the CPU. Definitely comes equipped with everything one would want in a new high performance rig, the Phantom is looking to capture the market and do it at a minimum price.

ocz reaper 2133EDITOR'S UPDATE: This kit is the standard "Reaper HPC", and not the "ReaperX" edition. All mentioning of "ReaperX" have been corrected to "Reaper HPC". We sincerely apologize to both our loyal readers, OCZ and especially to any guests who were linked in. We assure you all that this is not a typical occurrence here at Pro-Clockers. Again we are sorry for this mix up! -Clint/Formula350 

OCZ have given us the best of both worlds with their latest addition to the enthusiast Reaper HPC line of memory kits, giving us 8GB of usable memory under a 64-bit operating system. At the same time it operates at a high enough frequency to achieve some excellent performance! How does 2133MHz sound?

Lian Li V354Our latest case here on the bench comes to us from Lian Li and is the PC-V354R. The V354R is a small form factor case that supports everything an avid LAN-goer needs in a portable gaming rig. Able to accommodate a powerhouse of a graphics card and the power supply to match it, the V354R is certainly in a league of many, but a class of few.

Aerocool Strike-XAerocool has hit the market with a new model that is more visually striking than the FX6T. The new Strike-X offers full ability to control up to five fans and monitoring five different temperature probes. The Strike-X obviously gets its name from the big red ‘X’ display in the front. That big red ‘X’ can be replaced with a black one as well to better match your case and personal preference.

Its ability to accommodate graphic cards up to 12.2 inches in length is what will make SG07 stand out from the others in the SFF case market. Until now there weren't many SFF cases that gave the end-user this much leeway when it came to building their ideal gaming rig. Or one worthy enough to be hauled to the local LAN parties at least. So to be able to hold on to that advantage the SG07 also comes with an 80Plus certified 600 watt power supply, easily earning it's "Gaming SFF" title.

Yes, the SG07 does offer a lot in the form of features, but there is even more to it than the small size and an 80Plus Bronze rated power supply. But we can't give away all the juicy details in the introduction! You will have to read on to find out more.

thermaltake blacx 5gThe new BlacX 5G from Thermaltake looks pretty much like all their other hard drive docks but it does offer one more thing and that is USB3.0. With the performance that SuperSpeed delivers there is no better way to get data from one location to another, but at $50 is it really worth the extra premium you have to fork out to have it on your desktop? We will see.

Crosshair IVAs great as those features may be, it is all the other things that ASUS has integrated into the new Crosshair that set the motherboard apart from the competition. First, it begins with the CrossLinx 3 which with the help of the Lucid HYDRALOGIX engine gives the end users the ability mix and match different graphic cards and allows them to run together, enhancing the gaming experience. Not only does this give nVidia fans the option of running SLi on an AMD chipset, but to have an Crossfire-SLi hybrid if you so choose. 

The above is enough to have many of us begging for more money in our allowance to go out and grab this motherboard. There is still so much more to the Crosshair IV Extreme, which we will be talking about in the review, and it is only going to add to your desire to own this board.

Suffice to say, I think the power supply is possibly the most important component in today’s computers. It gives life to our pieced-together monsters, and then takes it away in an instant, if it isn’t up to the task.  All the shear computational and graphic processing in the world sits unused without electricity.

With reverence, I give you the AXP SuperNova , a monster 1000 watt power supply with enough connectors it looks like a boxy spaghetti monster. How well does it work? Let’s just say it’s worth the asking price. Ramen.

Antec DesignerAntec has just released a sleek little cooler that is bound to drop the temperature any laptop up to fifteen inches. Which is an ideal size since most of the laptops sold today measure fifteen inches and under. Along with its stylish looks the Designer features a 110mm blower-fan and operates at 800RPM, making it whisper quite.

MUKii TransImp MDMUKii's internal enclosure differs slightly from that offered by Vantec, with the MUKii TransImp MD utilizing in the smaller 3.5” bay, as apposed to the larger 5.25” bay of the Vantec. For those that may be willing to sacrifice one of the few 3.5” exterior bays, then this would be a fair exchange since the TransImp MD is a really nice looking enclosure and won't clash with the exterior of your case. Of course, that is completely besides being rather handy to those in need of data retrieval from a 2.5” hard drive.

Vantec NexStar SEDo you have a multitude of 2.5" SATA storage devices you swap around on a somewhat regular basis, or find yourself upgrading drives to have the 'Latest and Greatest'? Then what better way to access your data than through an internal hotswappable cage like this one that Vantec has for us today! The Vantec NexStar SE Dual 2.5” SATA Hard Drive Rack allows an individual to install up to two of the small 2.5" drives into a desktop without having to remove side panels, look for open SATA ports, install the drive and run the cables to it. However, the best feature of all is you will maintain the SATA II speeds throughout the data transfer, far better than USB that can raise CPU usage which can result in fluctuating speeds.
