Overlord: Most Evil Video Game of 2007 for PC/XBox 360

Overlord is an action adventure game, set in a seriously warped fantasy world. Controlling a mysterious figure that has inherited the legacy of the evil, long-dead Overlord, the player emerges, near death, from the ruins of the old Overlord’s Dark Tower. Only the player’s actions will determine if they will rise to become the new all-powerful Overlord; it’s all down to how much of a bad ass they want to be in order to succeed...evil or really evil! Played out with plenty of black humour and dark irony, this video game has pitched Benchmark Reviews into twisted parodies of classic fantasy scenarios and characters.

Titan G4TZ Magic Pad Notebook Cooler

As users demand the same performance from notebook computers as they get from their desktop, manufacturers are finding that it's getting tougher and tougher to design a cool running computer. NVIDIA now offers some very high-end graphics to notebook builders, which makes the task that much more difficult. This opens a new segment of the market up to manufacturers willing to provide aftermarket notebook cooling solutions.

Hiper Anubis Mid Tower ATX Case HTC-1K614

Anubis is the name of the ancient Egyptian God of Death and the name of the 1st ATX case ever from HIPER. As expected, HIPER does not come up with something usual: the HTC-1K614 is entirely constructed out of high quality 3mm thick aluminium 6063 T5 alloy, weighing in at over 23 pounds! What makes the Hiper Anubis different to the other alloy cases is in the manufacturing process. All of panels are alloy welded together creating a much stronger structure to withstand over 220lbs compared to the cheaper riveting method, where the joint not only becomes a weaker point, but allows the entire structure to bend. The Anubis mid-tower ATX case comes pre-modded with a side window and is probably the only case with a window to pass EMI testing, so is perfect for gamers and hardware enthusiasts.

FOXCONN GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB Video Card

Once you become accustomed to change, you learn that some things have really remained the same. In previous models, NVIDIA has taken to giving each model of video card a level designating suffix. While GeForce buffs may recall that the GTS suffix hasn’t been around for the past five generations, it returns in this eighth generation of GPU’s to replace what used to be the GT edition as the second most powerful product in series. While it seems curiously restrictive to begin your brand new series of video cards with the model number 8800, it is just like NVIDIA to shoot for the moon and then let everything that doesn’t make it there fall into a series somewhere under this model. This is where the GTS version comes into action as the second level offering for the 8800 series. Join Benchmark Reviews as we explore the latest video card offered by FOXCONN.

Antec TP3-650 Rev. A2 TruePower Trio 650W PSU

The power supply unit is the single most important part of any computer. Regardless of the system there is a given rule: whether it is a simple workstation with integrated components or an advanced gaming system with fresh piece of technology available, everything requires power to operate. As anyone who has suffered the failure of a low-end power supply will tell you: not all power supply units (PSU’s) are created equal. Benchmark Reviews updates the original review with new features and load tested Oscilloscope regulation results for the A2 Revision Antec TruePower Trio 650W PSU.
