    Silent, dustless cooling is an attractive idea,but this monster from Nofan proves high temps are unavoidable for totally passive coolers.

    How much does fancy packaging matter? Ultimately, it can't be that critical, otherwise the Deepcool Ice Matrix 400 would have this thing completely wrapped up.

    AMD have updated the Piledriver specification to offer some more bang for your buck. Can it go toe-to-toe with Intel this time round?

    Affordable synchronous NAND with great performance. The real-world difference between this and the Neutron GTX is marginal.

    The name KingSpec may be new to you, and indeed us, but the company has been in the flash storage business since 1995.

    KingSpec Multi Core 1TB PCIe review

    8  

    With the current crop of solid-state drives already knocking very hard on the door of SATA 6Gbps bandwidth limit, we might have to start looking elsewhere for speedy SSDs.

    ARCTIC Accelero Hybrid review

    8  

    ARCTIC has taken the bull by the horns and released a DIY liquid cooling kit, but this time not for a CPU - instead it's for keeping a graphics card cool.

    Zotac's GeForce GTX 650 Ti has the same layout as the basic GTX 660, using the same GK106 GPU, but with a few changes.

    8  

    Motherboards are dull. Decide the specs you need, compare on price and, maybe, take branding and reputation into account, and pull trigger. It's that simple.

    AMD's new Piledriver processor uses the new FM2 socket. With their track record of maintaining compatibility across processors and sockets, how does this new mobo marry up?

    Take a CPU. Cram in a graphics core. What d'ya got? If you're AMD, it's a Fusion processor.

    Zotac GTX 660 review

    Nvidia graphics cards have recently become a lot like buses. You wait around for one for ages... then you're a little disappointed when it finally arrives and costs a lot more than you'd hoped.

    Where the Transcend StoreJet 25M3 had a durable case, the Transcend StoreJet 35T3 USB 3.0 External Hard Drive has quick and secure data backup.

    EVGA GTX 680 Signature 2 review

    EVGA GTX 680 Signature 2 review

    8  

    This is Nvidia's most powerful iteration of the new Kepler architecture, pushed even further than its reference GTX 680 - a card so powerful only AMD's HD 7970 can look it in the eye.

    Sapphire Vapor-X HD 7970 GHz review

    8  

    Sapphire's Vapor-X HD 7970 aims to push AMD's Graphics Core Next hardware to its very limits by boosting the core and memory clocks, and managing the excess heat with its top-of-the-line air cooling.

    ASRock Z77E-ITX review

    The mini-ITX form factor has been around for a while, but it wasn't until the Sandy Bridge crowd tipped up that we started to see some lovely-looking, teeny-tiny motherboards worth a damn.

    The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. The divine benevolence in question is the belated and very much awaited arrival of TRIM support when operating SSDs in RAID arrays.

    Can this latest Crucial drive compete with its SATA 3Gbps connection when it's competitors are chucking around the 6Gbps standard?

    The battle between Asus and Gigabyte has traditionally been a heavyweight contest, though in recent years it's become more of a ritualised beating, as the Asus boards have consistently out-punched Gigabyte at every level.

    This is the top Z77 board from Gigabyte, and has pretty much everything a full-spec £260 mobo should.

    Gigabyte GTX 660 Ti Superclocked review

    Gigabyte isn't particularly well known for its GPUs in the UK, and when you look at the OC version we have in our test bench right now you might think that's a bit of a shame.
