We have two new camera reviews for y0u today: a RaidSonic Icy box outdoor IP camera and a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100.   We also have the normal crunchy-fried tech-news fare, such as a new Meduza Gaming mouse, OCZ SSD drive, CoolerMaster Gaming headset, a new gaming keyboard, and much more.

We even have an article that’s so presumptuous as to say it has everything you ever need to know about chipsets… like there’s ever enough information!

RaidSonic ICY BOX IB-CAM2002 1.3MP Outdoor IP Camera Review @ Nikktech
Last week i was lucky enough to attend a party thrown by one of the world’s largest companies (unrelated with PC hardware) during which i was somewhat taken off guard when some people (including a couple of friends) walked up to me and asked my opinion on whether or not using IP cameras is the way to go if they wanted to safeguard their homes/properties. My reply to them was what I’ve been telling everyone for the past 5 years and that’s that IP cameras can certainly add an extra layer of security and they can come in very handy (sometimes they can even act as a measure of prevention) but should never be used on their own. Anyways last time we checked the Airlive OD-2025HD 2MP Outdoor IP Camera but since FullHD (1080p) models do not come very cheap today we will be taking a look an HD (1.3MP/720p) Outdoor IP Camera, the RaidSonic ICY BOX IB-CAM2002.

ASUS P9X79 Pro Intel X79 Motherboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
Intel’s X79 platform has been out for a little while now.  This platform is the real high-end when it comes to gaming and CPU-intensive tasks.  ASUS has quite a few different X79 motherboards to choose from.  Today we will be taking a look at their P9X79 Pro Motherboard.  This board sits in the middle of ASUS’s P9X79 boards with the P9X79 LE ($229) and P9X79 ($259) boards being below it and the P9X79 Deluxe ($359) and P9X79 WS ($379) being at the high end.
