Video Review #1025: Cooler Master Silent Pro M 700W PSU

The Cooler Master Silent Pro line of power supplies are currently available in three wattages; 500, 600 & 700. I reviewed the 700W model. The +3.3V rail is 28A & the +5V rail is 25A. There's a single +12V rail which is an impressive 50A. This is one of the best power supplies I've tested in this range. It's quality built, efficient, ultra quiet 135mm fan, uses Japanese capacitors, modular and comes with a 5 year warranty. Watch the video to find out more.

Video Review #756: HIS X1650XT 256MB Video Card

The HIS X1650XT 256MB Video Card is certainly not the fastest Video Card on the planet, but it does offer a lot of value. Since it is very affordable and supports the latest games, many price-conscious buyers will be interested. If you are not running at a high resolution and don't have all the eye candy turned on, this video card might be for you. Watch the Video to find out more...


Video Review #759: HIS X1650XT 256MB iSilenceII Video Cards (CrossFire)

The HIS X1650XT series of Video Cards offer tremendous value. When combined in a CrossFire configuration they still offer great value, but performance goes way up! As a matter of fact, two X1650XT Video Cards will outperform a single X1950Pro Video Card in some instances. If you're on a budget and want a CrossFire setup, get 'em!

Video Review #760: Hiper Type R & Type M 730W Power Supplies

Both the Hiper Type R and Type M 730 watt power supplies perform very well. The Hiper Type R is the fancy model and has a unique stainless steel body and modular design. The Type M 730 watt power supply, on the other hand, is rather basic. It has a satin, black finish and plenty of sleeved leads. The big draw for either is the high wattage which is needed for a hardcore gaming rig. Watch the Video to find out more...


Video Review #763: Tagan TG900-U95 900W Power Supply

The Tagan TG900-U95 900W Power Supply performs very well, and that's to be expected from a 900W Power Supply. If that's not enough power, Tagan has a 1100 watt model. Who needs this kind of power? If you are a serious gamer with a quad video card setup and have lots of other hardware, you will need a high wattage power supply to keep everything running. While this power supply has plenty of sleeved/shielded leads they are not modular. Watch the Video to find out more...


Video Review #764: SilverStone TJ09 Case

The SilverStone TJ09 Case has lots of drive bays, a removable motherboard tray, excellent air circulation, is all aluminum, has exceptional build quality, and looks fantastic. This product is truly an example of what you should be looking for in a high quality mid-tower case. It's easily one of the best mid-tower cases on the planet! Watch the Video to find out more...


Video Review #765: SteelSeries SteelSound 3H & 4H Headsets

Both the SteelSound 3H and 4H headsets offer great bang for the buck. The 3H headset is targeted at the budget market, but great if you need an inexpensive, small, foldable headset for a LAN party. The 4H has a little better sound quality, larger earcups, and is more comfortable, but it's not foldable like the 3H. Watch the Video to find out more...


Video Review #767: Etasis ET850 850W Power Supply

The Etasis ET850 850W Power Supply performs very well, has lots of leads, is 80% efficient, and has Active PFC. These are very important factors to take into consideration when purchasing a power supply. It's also dual NVIDIA 8800 Video Card certified, which is fantastic. This power supply doesn't have any modular leads though, but that's common for a power supply of this wattage. Watch the Video to find out more..


Video Review #768: Swiftech Quiet Power P180 Water Cooled Case

Swiftech has done a fantastic job at selecting and installing their water cooling components into the Antec P180 Case. The case have plenty of drive bays, fans, air filers, and sound proof side panels and front. Swiftech has used an improved version of the H20-120 premium water cooling kit. Included is the Apogee CPU waterblock, MCP350 Pump, MCR120-QP Radiator, MCRes Micro Reservoir, 3/8" A-60 Norprene™ tubing and Hydrx™ coolant. An excellent product that performs very well. It's a no brainer! Watch the Video to find out more..

Video Review #769: CoolIT Eliminator CPU Cooler (TEC)

This is CoolIT's second Thermal Electric Cooler (TEC); the first one was the Freezone. I've video reviewed the Freezone and thought it was excellent, but I like the Eliminator even more. They've incorporated everything into one unit, which makes it easier to install than the Freezone. You can also manually adjust the fan speed to suit your needs. It's definitely a great alternative to some complicated water cooling setups. Watch the Video to find out more...


Video Review #770: Antec Nine Hundred Case

If you're in the market for a new chassis, I would strongly recommend checking out the Antec Nine Hundred Case. It has most of the ingredients you should look for when purchasing a case. There are lots of fans and one massive 200mm fan at the top of the case, which provide excellent air circulation inside the case. There are many drive bays and modular HDD cages, which can be configured for your particular drive setup. Watch the video to find out more and check out the bloopers at the end.
