:.Audio Technica ATH-ANC7 Noise-Cancelling Headphones @ hardwarezone
Audio Technica's QuietPoint ATH-ANC7 is the latest traveler's noise-cancelling headphone on the block, and we test it out to see if it's really as good as its name suggests.

:.Noctua NH-C12P @ XSReviews
With the increasing amount of tower-type CPU coolers on the market, enthusiasts seem to have entirely forgotten about the classic top-down format. So today, we'll be taking a step back from tower format heatsinks by reviewing the Noctua NH-C12P - a cooler which surprisingly, uses the top-down design. Let's resurrect this staple of days gone by, and find out if it can beat today's preferred format.

:.WolfKing Timber Wolf Gaming Keyboard @ benchmarkreviews
The typical gaming keyboard is hardly more than a standard keyboard with a few enhancements. They have unnecessary software to set up profiles for multiple games, which can bring along its own issues. Multiple and fast keystroke capability are also on the list of features. Will the design of the Timber Wolf change the way you play?

:.Acer Aspire One @ InsideHW
On fast-growing market of small portable computers another "big player" put itself into play in the struggle for leadership. Acer's trump card is Aspire One model A110-Ab. Term netbook came out as result of need for making boundary between these little guys and classic notebooks. Therefore, the most precise name of tested device should be Acer Aspire One A110-Ab Netbook (A110-Ab is just a model identification for certain region). As people from Acer are aware of fact that they are a little bit late with launching of this kind of device on market, they tried different approach - attractive price and different design solutions from competitions...

Motherboards & Memory

:.Gigabyte & Foxconn AMD 790GX @ InsideHW
It' s been a while since AMD-ATi Company introduced, so far the best integrated chipset - AMD RS780 i.e. AMD780G which surpassed, by performances of integrated graphics and by quality of video display, its competition. nVIDIA soon after introduced its 780a chipset that offered support for SLi and didn't fall much behind AMD/ATi RS780. Comparing to AMD RS780, nf780a is attended for more expensive motherboards that are equipped with better and more quality electronics. But, motherboards with RS780 couldn't go hand in hand with specifications of "hot" quad core Phenom processors (dissipation is up to 140W) and it often happened that cheap 780G motherboard in combination with such a processor broke down in guarantee time period...

:.Aeneon Xtune PC3-12800 @ XSReviews
Thanks to the lowered pricing of memory these days, it's not uncommon for relatively unknown companies to throw down the gauntlet for the bigger boys and this is a good thing, as it keeps the market leaders on their toes at the very least. With that in mind, today I have a kit entitled the XTune from Aeneon which is interestingly a subsidiary of Qimonda, the chip makers. Their reputation has always been relatively good when it came to memory chips, so how will their own brand of kit stand up to the flack? Let's find out.

:.ECS P45T-A @ pcstats
If you're not interested in paying extra for overclocking headroom you'll never use, the ECS P45T-A motherboard is a great board to consider. Built with the Intel P45 Express and Intel ICH10R chipsets, the ECS P45T-A motherboard supports all Socket 775 Intel processors running with a Front Side Bus of 800/1066/1333 MHz. That includes the new generation of 45nm 'Yorkfield' and 'Wolfdale' Core 2 Duo processors. Gamers who plan on running a pair of CrossfireX enabled videocards in tandem (say, a pair of Radeon HD4850's for example), will find two PCI Express 2.0 compliant PCIe x16 slots at their disposal.

Power Supply

:.Thermaltake Toughpower 1200W @ Rbmods
It's time to take a look at a 1200W PSU from Thermaltake, we are going to look at their biggest PSU from the Toughpower series. This PSU has four 12V rails from 20A and up so there is alot of power to be used, the question is how stable all the rails are and how loud this thing actually will be? I can only imagine how hot this thing actually will be after awhile of gaming or using the computer at load.
