FunkyIT Impressed With Noctua NH-L9i Cooler

"Noctua NH-L9i is high quality and well performing compact cooler. As I mentioned at the beginning of this review, not many similar coolers are available on the market and for sure not many can offer so high product quality. Everything looks great including package."

ASUS Graphics Card Cooling A Thing Of Beauty Writes eTeknix

"ASUS cooling solution is a thing is beauty and revolves around 5 ridiculously thick heat-pipes, a dense aluminium fin array and three patented Wing-Blade fans. These fans offer a magnificent noise to performance ratio without impacting on thermal efficiency. Throughout the testing procedure, the graphics card remained extremely quiet under load and it was difficult to detect any volume increases. This is due to the fans working independently and employing a gentle curve. Of course, the fans switch off in idle usage scenarios which contribute to a silent desktop experience. Overall, the graphics cards noise levels are surprisingly low for a triple fan configuration."

TechPowerUp: DeepCool Genome Chassis Is Both Harmonious & Organic

"From a case perspective, the Genome delivers with solid, but somewhat simple functionality. Luckily, that is no issue thanks to the details in its design, which really make up for it as both the shroud and angled dividing wall within the chassis complement the enclosure's overall look. The result is a good-looking, functional, and adequately priced chassis with a potent cooling solution build right in - a combination many have tried but have never been able to really pull off in the same harmonious and organic fashion as Deepcool has with the Gamer Storm Genome."

Ocaholic Says ASUS Rampage V Edition 10 Motherboard Is Close To Perfection

"The Rampage V Edition 10 from ASUS is a product, which is close to perfection. Of course expectations towards a new flagship motherboard from ASUS are high but in the case of this board the vendor didn't fail. There is simply an armada of features and extreme overclockers will be happy as well."

MadShrimps Review G.Skill F4-3000C15D-32GVR DDR4 Kit

"Despite the fact that we are getting pre-overclocked memory modules which are guaranteed to work at the pre-programmed XMP 2.0 profile, these also have a bit of overclocking headroom so we have succeeded to run them at 3200MHz by only relaxing the timings a bit."

G.Skill MX780 Mouse - Its All There Writes BenchmarkReviews.

"this is a legitimate budget gaming mouse, but amazingly at this price level youre not really giving up anything in terms of quality or features. Quad-zone programmable RGB LED lights, eight buttons, adjustable weights, and switchable side panels: its all there. And I might also note that this is one of the very few gaming mice thats legitimately symmetrical and ambidextrous: left-handers rejoice! For you there are no compromises whatsoever when using this mouse left-handed."

TweakTown - SilverStone Hits Home Run With Primera PM01 Chassis

"For a chassis that is built this solid, is as feature rich as this is, and when it brings an individual style and appeal, those are the cases we tend to go for. The Primera PM01, whether you go for the black chassis and red LEDs, or if you opt for this one, white with blue LEDs, you are getting one hell of a case. SilverStone moves from top tier pricing, but still delivers top level craftsmanship and everything we have some to expect from them in this design. While it is something entirely new, providing a very affordable, feature rich, mid-tower chassis, SilverStone came out swinging and knocked this one clean out of the park."

SteelSeries Apex M500 Keyboard Solid Reports OCAholic

"Steelseries managed to create a solid product. We like the fact that this keyboard is heavy, features simple, standard design and therefore also a standard layout. Apart from that there is a blue backlight, which is clear and precise and definitely bright enough."

Luca Rocchi - OCAholic.

Thrustmaster 599XX EVO 30 Alcantara Edition Wheel Upgrade Review By PC Perspective - Money Well Spent!

"for any enthusiast with a TX or T300 wheel base, this is a must-have upgrade. It provides an enhanced experience over at least the F458 rim that comes stock with the TX servo base. It features the Alcantara material over the rubberized plastic rim that comes standard with the T300 setup. It is an upgrade in size, weight, and materials from anything else in its price category. I personally think it is money well spent if a user invests any significant amount of time racing."

TweakTown Writes ASUS RAMPAGE V EDITION 10 Motherboard Might Just Be The BEST... Ever!

"I review a lot of motherboards, and I rarely come across products such as the Rampage V Extreme 10. I get the feeling that ASUS couldn't have done better regarding looks and feel. The motherboard is so heavy, you almost feel like it is a shot-put ball, I am pretty sure you can use it as a weapon if you hurled it at someone. The motherboard's finish, from the integrated IO shield to the lettering on the heat sinks is very sharp and elegant; it provides a chic feeling"

SilverStone Redline RL05 Chassis On APH Networks

"The case is solidly built with its steel construction, and it even comes with a side window. The cable management options and power supply cover are great additions to have a clean final appearance. There are enough cable management holes to route the cables around the case, and even a 5.25" drive bay, which is more based on your personal preference, but I think the flexibility is welcome, especially considering it was implemented in an unobtrusive way. The Redline RL05 also provides plenty of cooling options, from water cooling to just big air coolers."

TechSpot Report On Nvidia GTX1080 In SLI - MASSIVE GAINS!

"Though we mostly focused on games that support Nvidias multi-GPU technology, these also happen to be some of the most popular PC games released as of late. On average SLI enabled 63% more performance or 71% if we ignore Ashes of the Singularity. We'd call that a solid score for SLI scaling.

Granted, this may not convince many to spend another $600+ on a second GPU but in a good number of scenarios at 4K, it pushed performance from playable to smooth-as-silk."

AMD Sitting Pretty With The RX 480 Writes Anandtech

"the Radeon RX 480 puts AMD in a good position. They have the mainstream market to themselves, and RX 480 is a strong showing for their new Polaris architecture. AMD will have to fend off NVIDIA at some point, but for now they can sit back and enjoy another successful launch."
