ASRock Fatal1ty B85 Killer Board Review

Far too often we pay attention to the biggest and best boards on the market and overlook the ones that actually make up a large portion of the sales. Entry to mid range components are used by the majority system builders to do a specific function and to keep costs down. Today we will be looking at a board from ASRock that falls right into the Mid-Range market but does so without skimping on features. The Fatal1ty B85 Killer is directed right at system builders that are also hardcore gamers. The Fatal1ty series of products are made to address the desires of all gamers: quality audio, network lag and FPS. The B85 Killer is one of four new boards from ASRock to carry the Fatal1ty name.

Nanoxia Deep Silence 5 Mid-Tower Case Review

Nanoxia Deep Silence cases are well known in Europe and designed for both cool and quiet performance. Today will be looking at the Deep Silence 5 Mid-Tower chassis. This innovative case is part of a new line of future products, whose objective is to offer the perfect symbiosis of ideal system cooling and sensationally low noise levels in one package. The focus was always on two requirements: minimize noise and minimize system temperatures. It is also designed especially for the use in high-end PC- and gaming systems. The side panels and roof are fitted with specially designed, noise reducing insulation materials to help minimize and absorb any noises. The solid front doors also use sound absorbing materials that contribute significantly to the most effective noise reduction achieved by Nanoxia. Also responsible for the quietness of the case are the three pre-installed Nanoxia fans of the brand new DS-Series. This most recent Nanoxia fan-series features a new impeller design, optimized for the best possible mix of silence and cooling capacity. Read on to see what else the Nanoxia Deep Silence 5 may have to offer.

Transcend ESD200 128GB External USB 3.0 SSD

You are probably familiar with the company Transcend. Transcend makes a WIDE variety of storage solutions including USB flash drives, solid state drives, external hard drives, external CD/DVD drives, SD cards, digital photo frames and more. You are also likey familiar with the concept of an external hard drive. It's simply a standard hard drive of the 2.5" or 3.5" flavor tossed into an external case that connects to your computer typically via USB. Most people have one and use them for transferring large amounts of data or doing PC backups. Transcend took the typical external hard drive idea and replaced the old mechanical drive with a 2.5" SSD. The result is the ESD200 USB 3.0 external SSD, available in 128GB and 256GB flavors. Transcend sent us a 128GB model to review, so let's check it out!

Archgon MH-3507HUB Fusion II Docking System

I don’t know about you but I personally have several small and large capacity 2.5" and 3.5" external hard drives that I use for storage only. I store movies, music, pictures, and important data on several separate HDDs. This makes it easier for me to label each drive to keep track of what I have on them and also enables me to designate the right size HDD for my storage needs. I despise having to dismantle and remove the hard drive from my vertical enclosure on my desk whenever I want to swap them out. The amount of time it takes to open the enclosure, remove and swap out the drive is sometimes so frustrating because it frequently takes me longer than the actually transfer of the data itself. Today I have the pleasure of reviewing an enclosure that I believe may relieve these frustrations. The Archgon Fusion II Docking System comes with on board USB 3.0 support, USB 3.0 Hub and will support hard drives up to 3TB in size. The Archgon Fusion II also features a patented drive ejection system, making removal of your HDD or SSD quick, safe, and easy. The Archgon MH-3507HUB Fusion II has a horizontal open architecture design that helps reduce heat and alleviates vibration during drive spin up, protecting your drive from damage while the drive is working. The Archgon MH-3507HUB Fusion II features an external three port USB 3.0 hub allowing the user to plug other USB devices into the hub and still take full advantage of the USB 3.0 speed. Let’s read on to see what else ...
