    ZOTAC Refines the GeForce GTX 680 AMP! Edition with Dual-Silencer Cooler

    Not when MSI Lightning 680 matches its core clock(1110/1176) & have software(AB2.2.3) support for over-voltage. Stock vs Stock this card might come ahead as Zotac is the only NV AIB that does factory OC for memory but it is a different story when you OC both to the max. unless Firestorm allows...

    VTX3D HD 7870 Black Tahiti LE 2 GB

    I am sorry if this have been mentioned in another reviews already. But why are the Nividia cards in these reviews still on 306.23 WHQL drivers? Shouldn't they be run on the latest WHQL(310.90) for fair comparison against 12.11 beta?

    ASUS VivoBook U38DT Ultrabook Pops Up with Radeon HD 8550M Graphics

    This is an ultrabook and shouldn't be designed for intensive gaming. A 1600X900 or 1920X1080p screen would be a lot nicer for movie/HD Video playbacks and neither of these needs more than 30 FPS.

    ASUS VivoBook U38DT Ultrabook Pops Up with Radeon HD 8550M Graphics

    So have a HD8550M and an APU only to waste it on a 1366X768 screen ???? it should at least be 1600X900 and preferably 1080p IPS.

    AeroCool Announces SilentMaster 200 mm LED Fan

    Hmm, not sure how well these compete against a CM Megaflow(my guess is not well) that also comes in Red/Blue LED, offer 700 RPM and 110CFM/19dba. The advantage of these fan is they are 200X200X20 instead of the usual 30 so maybe they will fit in tighter spaces compared to Megaflow.

    MSI Big Bang Z77 MPower Intel SKT 1155

    This board had many features(the horizontal usb3.0 header imo should be standard, the vertical 3.0 header is a big time cable management nightmare) that made me regret getting a P8Z77-V instead of waiting for this, until I read on overclock.net's user topic that it had OC problems with the...

    BitFenix Ghost

    That vent hole on R4 is for people who want to cool their SLI GPUs, you could also get the windowed version with no vent holes. Plus it is blocked off if you don't need to mount a fan there.

    Just run mine again: 9118 Stretched(I usually run this) I always run this. 8854 Centered(I assume you runned this), Centered->Streched always gives a boost between 300-500 to oveall score it seems. Finally OCed the GPU, mediocre but I am fine with +101 and 1250 Max Boost, at least the...

    Project Arctic SGP, what can I expcet?

    Yeah I learned that 3D Mark 11 loves high Ram speed & tight timing, my 1600 9-9-9-24 kit could only score 7300 on physics, same CPU with the ram OCed to 1866 9-9-9-24 hit 7.8-7.9K pretty easily.

    Fractal Design Define R4

    You could also just remove both HDD cage to clear the way for airflow, use one optical bay with a 5.25"-3.5 adaptor for your hard drive, back panel mount your SDD.

    If you want to call Overclock.net "other,much smaller websites" then feel free to do so, multiple ASUS/Giga Fanboys criticized ASrock's 7 series VRM in the ASRock OC Formula thread, long thread so I won't bother list the actual quotes but they are in there. In case you didn't look through my...

    What kind of silly reviews were you reading? or your eyes can't tell 2 from 6? Despite numerous ASrock hater claiming their VRM stinks, their mobo OCs just fine and Extreme 4/6 were both recommended buy on Tom's review.
