TechConnect reviews the Behringer B-2 PRO Studio Condenser Microphone

"With the B-2 PRO you get a nice airy transparency and excellent fidelity in details reproduction. It sounds superb and flat; it has transparent highs and warm mids. The vocals are warm too. The B-2 PRO is known to have slightly accentuated frequencies around 12 kHz; at least that is what Behringer say about it. Testing did reveal a slight accentuation in the frequency range, but it is not disturbing at all. It is quite all right, and excellent for vocals (mids-to-highs)."

Corsair TWINX4000 and TWINX4000PRO Kits Review @ Bjorn3D

"The modules in the non-Pro TWINX kit that I am covering in this review are not much different than what you are used to seeing in the XMS line. The more interesting kit in this review is definitely the ProSeries pair. This is Corsair´s latest innovation to put a smile on the enthusiast´s face. The ProSeries modules feature a larger and nicer heatsink and activity LEDs! Yup, that´s right. Just when you thought you´d seen it all with RAM, Corsair decides to be the first company to add activity LEDs. Although not high in utility, they are very cool and just right for a case window."

OCW reviews Chaintech Apogee FX71 5600FX Ultra

"Chaintech, one of the leading graphics card manufacturers released the FX71 card based on the FX5600Ultra chipset some weeks ago. While we have seen many other 5600FX cards reviewed on the net, we will see how well this card fares in terms on overclocking and performance. Running at a default core clk/mem speed of 400/800, it can be overclocked higher to around 460 for core and 850 for the memory. "
