Hardware Roundup: Friday Edition

bp9801 - May 23, 2014 09:58AM in Affiliate News

It's nearly time for the last full weekend of May, but before it arrives we have plenty of items for you to check out. There is a look at multiple CPUS from Intel's Haswell refresh, including the i7 4790 and i5 4690. A couple of solid state drives get put to the test, with both the OCZ Vertex 460 240GB and ADATA XPG SX300 mSATA reviewed. The ADATA one is particularly unique since it plugs into an mSATA port on a motherboard, so it could be a nice way to add extra space without taking up a hard drive slot. If storage on the go is what you crave, then perhaps the Silicon Power Diamond D20 500GB USB 3.0 portable HDD is for you. We also have a review on Lian Li's PC-Q07B mini-ITX case, with its compact yet tall cube design to hold a variety of hardware. Lastly we have a look at the Logitech G502 Proteus Core gaming mouse for anyone needing more precise control of their games.
