What exactly are your favorite PC review sites?  I find X-bit labs to be one of the best.  Especially when it comes to PSU's.  Nobody does as good of a job as they do when testing.  I also like Anandtech, SPCR, SLCentral and a few others.

What is SPCR?

I like AnandTech, Hardware Analysis, Xbit Labs, Guru3D, SysOpt, and Hexus.

SPCR is the second best when it comes to PSU's.  There site is directed towards silence instead of overclocking, but they do a very good job.

THG is terrible.  I would take just about everything that sites says with a grain of salt.  This is one of many examples of why his site sucks.  In that link the guy can't even diagnose his motherboard properly and then he massacres the board (verbally) all because of the \"Faulty diagnostic LEDs\"

He also bashes AMD.  He even said X2 was a failure.  I honestly think he would be better off donating his testing equipment to people who are better qualified to use it.

I would really stick with other reviewers (SPCR, Anandtech etc.)

Yes. THG is extremely biased towards products. Not a very good source for information...

I wouldn't really totally ditch them as they sometimes may have something interesting.
