Cooler Master HAF Stacker 935: Lego chassis

Large chassis have become a rarity in our offices. The reasons for that are few, but the main “culprit” is the advent of mobile devices in computer market. The number of hardware enthusiasts who handpick components and try to squeeze the last atom of power from CPU and graphics is decreasing. That’s precisely the reason why we were very interested in testing this new chassis, sent to us by Cooler Master. The first thing you’ll notice is the enormous size of the packaging box. When you unpack its contents, you’ll realize why the box is that big – there are two separate chassis inside.

ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition: Intended for the overclocking elite

As soon as some time passes without ASUS giving their competition a “homework”, we can safely expect an avalanche of exclusive products. This time it's the new motherboard which will make most of overclockers around the world drool. When we say Rampage IV, many will immediately start to daydream, and when we add Black Edition, we believe that will get even more attention. Whoever is paying attention to the motherboard scene knows that Rampage IV motherboard is the ultimate product of the ASUS company. Of course, since it was presented nearly two years ago, it was time for users to be reminded who has the best and best-equipped LGA2011 motherboard. We’re glad that ASUS didn’t decide to just implement black components, but completely refreshed it’s strongest LGA2011 RoG platform.

Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4: Friends forever

The best motherboard doesn’t necessarily have to be the one that has the most of everything, simply because some of us don’t use a great number of capabilities that a device has. True, we would all prefer to have a board from ASUS WS series because we it looks powerful, but six PCI-Express x16 is usable by, perhaps, a single-digit percent of users. On the other hand, a board such as Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4 is an excellent balance between capabilities, price and design. That doesn't mean that it's a cheap or a weak board. Since we're talking about a model based on Intel's X70 chipset with LGA 2011 base it implies that it's a product intended for demanding users.

Sony Xperia Z Ultra: Smartphone with the biggest screen

Only two years ago, when Samsung started a new trend of producing smartphones with big screens with the Note model, everybody thought that nobody wanted to use a phone that big and that concept doesn’t have any sense. Today, smartphones with big screens and popular phablets (phone + tablet) are a part of everyday life for millions of people all around the world. Direct consequence of the fore-mentioned is the model Sony Xperia Z Ultra with a huge 6-inch screen. Whether this screen size, for something we call a phone, will become a usual size in the next years, we can’t say for sure, but to have for testing a smartphone that makes us look a bit strange during phone calls is an unexpected déjà vu.

ASUS RAIDR Express SSD: Beating records at all costs

Sometimes, it’s not possible to make the fastest device of a certain kind in the most elegant ways. Simply, it requires breaching the borders of the comfortable, so the result of the desire to reach the top place can sometimes be a cumbersome device. An excellent example of cases such as this one are the video cards with two GPUs that often have troubles with the noise they make, overheating, and sometimes, overloading the power supply and first and foremost, a (too) high price, and all of that because of the 30% increase in performances when compared to the cheaper, more elegant and more useful solutions. Still, even products such as those have their own buyers and purpose, because otherwise they wouldn’t be made in the first place. ASUS RAIDR is a product that finds itself on the thin line to cross into that irrational extreme.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti: Maxwell take 1

During GPU history, it was often the case when new architecture debuted it didn’t do so with the most powerful graphic processor or with the most expensive model. NVIDIA decided to do the same again, even though when we say that Maxwell will inherit Kepler, that doesn’t mean that we will today present a video card that costs a couple hundred of euros. Moreover, Maxwell is making their breakthrough on the market in a rather “normal” category. Video cards that don’t cost more than 150 euros won’t excite anyone too much, but that doesn’t mean it’s not possible to make serious progress.

Android KitKat 4.4

Android 4.4 (KitKat) is an operating system that, like its predecessors, can work on devices with a minimum of 512 MB of RAM. Considering that, up to now, Android’s Achilles’ heel was dealing with amount of memory; it comes as no surprise that they focused on dealing with that problem. KitKat, more so than any other previous Android OS version, enables efficiently dealing with memory resources.

LG G Pad 8.3: Smartphone’s best friend

LG has been presenting excellent mobile devices in the past year, starting with Optimus G, over Nexus 4 and up to the newest LG G2 model that stunned us. The time has come to see what can LG do with tablets, and their firstborn is 8.3-inch LG Pad G. We all know how important is the first impression and depending on how well it was made and what’s it offering compared to the competition, LG’s reputation as a tablet manufacturer will rise or fall. LG played it safe and chose Android as operating system, so we were further interest in how it will function in the unusual screen size and how easy will the tablet be to carry or use.
