Intel RTS2011LC CPU Water Cooler

Posted on November 30, 2011 by Sean Potter | Affiliate News,
Legit Reviews — We first learned that Intel would be releasing a stand-alone water cooling kit for Intel Sandy Bridge-E LGA2011 processors at IDF 2011. It was also at this show that we learned that Asetek had won the design contract and would be producing the sealed and easy to use water cooling kits for Intel. This means that both Intel and AMD have released water cooling solutions for their high-end desktop CPUs this year and both companies are using solutions from Asetek, which is huge for them. The Intel Core i7-3960X and Core i7-3930K are both costly processors as they retail for $1049.99 and $599.99, respectively. Neither of these processors come with a retail boxed air cooled HSF assembly.

EVGA GeForce GTX560Ti FTW 448-Core

Posted on November 30, 2011 by Sean Potter | Affiliate News,
Benchmark Reviews — This holiday season is gearing up to be a big one for computer gamers. A lot of big titles have been or will soon be released. Battlefield 3, Batman: Arkham City, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Modern Warfare 3, and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim are a few. Diablo 3 is expected early in 2012 as well. While this is great news for gamers, we don't have any expected releases of new GPU platforms. That's not terribly disheartening, as the current top-of-the-line GPUs will play even the most demanding of these titles. The problem is, those top end GPUs also cost an arm and a leg. NVIDIA is setting out to combat this problem for the holiday season 2011 by releasing a new and improved version of the GTX 560 Ti, the GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores. In this article, Benchmark Reviews is bringing you details on the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores FTW video card.

Seagate Momentus XT 750GB Hybrid Drive

Posted on November 30, 2011 by Sean Potter | Affiliate News,
Legit Reviews — Overall, we'd certainly recommend the Momentus XT and frankly wouldn't go back to a plain old hard drive unless we were forced to. The expediency of boot and application load times are something that, once you get used to it, you can't seem to live without. Keep in mind that it may take two or three times for the Adaptive Memory Technology to decide that it should be cached and speed things up. On the down side, every operation is not SSD fast, especially if you're performing it for the first time...

Legit Reviews — There are still plenty of users who have not and will not make the SSD leap anytime soon, so in terms of the HDD realm, the Momentus 750GB drive is really a solid choice. Hanging with an albeit aging 10,000 RPM drive is no small feat and squeezing the virtually unmatched 750GB capacity into the 2.5" form factor while putting out that kind of performance is impressive...
