BeanTech Igloo 11 Aluminum Case Review @ MODTHEBOX.COM

Modthebox have reviewed a very yellow aluminum case indeed. Quote: "BeanTech International has done a decent job in terms of simplifying the process of keeping the Perspex window place. At the top and bottom portion of the front bezel sits a series of metal hinges which have two sets of threaded hex screws secured directly to the chassis. A small push to the locking mechanism allows the swing out front panel door to stay in place and can be easily opened with a slight pull on the front bezel." Read the review HERE

SMC EZ-Stream Media Receiver @ Bigbruin.com

Quote:?"Taking a look at the included brochure proved to be a necessity as I usually just fire things right up, and then only after failed attempts, read the manual. In this case, you must have the included MediaServer software installed before doing anything with the EZ-Stream. MediaServer is a small application that allows you to choose shared directories, enter in addresses of Internet radio stations, and do general option settings. Turns out the EZ-Stream will not connect to anything without MediaServer running." Read the full review HERE

Creative Labs Gigaworks S750

So 7.1 surround sound, do we really need to invest in it ? Not really?… But guru3d?found out that?it certainly does make a difference over traditional 5.1 setups. Snip: "Skeptic at first, is what I was, because the actual speaker set that we are testing today has already been on the market for roughly a year and a half and could be considered a little dated. Today’s product my friends are the THX certified (Lucas Film tested and approved) high-end series speakers from Creative Labs, the 7.1 surround sound Gigaworks S750. The latest Dolby Digital EX and DTS-ES standards will finally get the attention they deserve in your PC room or even small living room." Read it HERE

Patriot PDC1G3200+XBLK 1GB DC Kit @ InsaneTek

Quote:? "As the age of Samsung TCCD memory chips come close to an end, companies are using what’s left in their stock to produce low latency DDR ram. PDP Systems is one of the lesser known memory companies that followed the trend of TCCD. It’s a surprise to hear that their company has been around since 1985. Although in existence for such a long time, they have provided memory for a variety of components, ranging from Flash memory devices to ATI graphics cards. Only recently has PDP Systems decided to join the highly competitive memory market with the name Patriot." Read the full review HERE

GeCube’s Radeon X850 XT Uniwise @ HEXUS

If you’re looking for a high performance graphics card, then this X850 XT from GeCube should be on your shopping list. It features a clever single slot cooler that still gives you overclocking headroom…. Snip: "For the performance, it’s hard to argue with the ?370 asking price, in the face of what you get for the same money invested in NVIDIA, right now. It’s close to X850 XT PE money, but then again, it is an XT PE in all but name. That it ships with an inspired cooler, one that brings back the essence of the initial X800 XT PE design, is all the better. I also get the dual DVI ports and VIVO ability I crave, for good measure."

Flexiglow Keyboard & Gaming Mouse @ Viperlair

Looking for some input devices to bring to your next LAN party? Viperlair look at some illuminated devices that also get the job done. Snip: "The Flexiglow xRaider Gaming Mouse and xRaider Keyboard are both good components although the obvious star of the show here is the Gaming Mouse. In the looks department it is pretty good, although I do think that perhaps the rear cycling LED should have a switch of some kind to dictate a singular colour or the cycling of the colour; it can get a bit tiresome/distracting to the eyes now and then. That said, there is a good chance you will have the palm of your hand covering it anyway." Read the review HERE
