BitFenix has blessed the PC world with many great ideas in their short of existence. The first was the Colossus now that case was definitely different from anything on the market.

Kingston has launched a budget friendly version of their fantastic HyperX line of solid state drives. This budget friendly version of the HyperX is known as the HyperX 3K.

This is usually a result of cheaper and slower NAND as a way to lower costs. Intel chose to use a slower firmware and a shorter warranty period for reducing costs.
Recently we have seen a string of cards appearing on the market that push the boundaries of performance on a single core card and [on paper] this, as we would expect, really has got some high expectations to live up to, especially following the huge success of the GTX 580 SOC. As its name would suggest the Super Overclock is not just an overclocked card, Gigabyte have taken it from the overclock level and given it some more poke and so we have as expected a lot more power to play with when compared to a stock GTX 680.
