Deepcool Gamer Storm Lucifer Cooler On TechPowerup

"The Deepcool Gamer Storm Lucifer is an exceptional air cooler that really delivers some nice bang for the buck. It manages to perform within a few degrees of the heavyweight dual-tower designs while remaining relatively quiet with the fan at full tilt. While the 45 dBA at full tilt is not as impressive as the Dark Rock Pro 3, 40 dBA is quieter than the Phanteks PH-TC14PE at 46 dBA. This can be attributed to the fans TPE coating and hydro bearings, which, with wider-spaced fins, help keep noise levels in check. With an expected price of $49.99, it manages to make some of the other high-end air coolers look just plain silly in terms of performance. Add to that its solid build quality and good packaging and Deepcool's dedication to quality becomes crystal clear. The cooler can even be used as a passive heatsink should a case have enough airflow."

NikkTech Review The DeepCool Gabriel Low Profile CPU Cooler

"Up until today i really thought that Thermalright, Thermolab and Noctua were the only three manufacturers to introduce good low-profile CPU Coolers in the market but it seems DeepCool is the one currently leading the pack. It really goes without saying that i expect the other manufacturers to follow the same path and introduce slightly larger solutions than what they currently have in the market to try and take back the mITX cooling performance crown from DeepCool but until that happens i doubt there's anything out there that can compare with the Gabriel at least not at around the same size."

Hexus Check Out The DeepCool Steam Castle

"Deepcool's Steam Castle succeeds at offering PC builders something a little different to the norm. Styled with steampunk ambitions and designed with various high-performance components in mind, the chassis will turn heads and can be used to put together a powerful mini- or micro-ATX build. The Steam Castle is the first Deepcool chassis to appear on our radar, and for the most part, we've come away pleasantly surprised. Build quality is solid throughout, the smooth-rubber coating provides a quality look and feel, and we appreciate the fact that Deepcool is trying something a little different."

DeepCool Steam Castle Chassis Review On Vortez

"There is no denying the appeal with this exciting new case because it drastically steps away from the norm in its external design. By the same token though, there's nothing subtle about the Steam Castle's looks. Deep Cool have opted for bold and curvy styling which is at odds with the current trend for rather monolithic exteriors; it seems almost as if they had their 'turbine' idea early on in the design process and decided to run with it, no matter the cost. The result is a chassis you love or you hate, but also unlike the busy (and often cheap-looking) designs of so-called gamer chassis."

Using Deliveries As A Sales Multiplier Discussion On Power Retail

"Yesteryear’s school of thought (which may still be highly prevalent among the slow movers of today), was that fulfilment is necessary, but dull. It was simply something a retailer should do in order to meet customer demand. It was also something that was very much thought of as ‘after the fact’ in the purchasing process. As a result, retailers concentrated on engaging content, great search and using merchandising to drive a rich digital experience. Under this paradigm we saw shipping and returns relegated – quite literally – to footnote status in the UI hierarchy. Today’s connected consumer doesn’t see it that way however, and the very best retailers have latched onto that fact, selling fulfilment to boost sales."

Silverstone Raven RV05 On Benchmark Reviews

"The RV05 is a great looking mid tower chassis. The matte black finish is very attractive, and fingerprints and dust don’t show up as noticeably as on many others. SilverStone put in the effort to not create a case that was flamboyent and covered in LEDs, but one that included little touches, such as the front I/O and slot drive covers, and the muted white LED strip."

Tt Esports Poseidon Z Keyboard Unbeatable Reports Techware Labs

"Tt eSport’s Poseidon Z is simply unbeatable. The full-sized mechanical keyboard offers a simple and elegant design that is welcomed by many gamers. The blue switches, although Chinese made, offer the same sound and tactile feel that mechanical keyboards are known for. Tt eSports lauched an incredible product that is surely to cause a stir in the mechanical keyboard market. It was hard to find any flaws with the Poseidon Z; minor nuisances aside, it is everything I would want from a gaming keyboard. If you are looking for an elegant, high quality, full-sized gaming keyboard for a relatively low price, I highly recommend the Poseidon Z by Tt eSports."

Silverstone 850w Strider Gold PSU On APH Networks

"the Strider Gold S is not only competitively priced among its peers, but it is also one of, if not the, smallest fully modular 850W power supply at press time. In a nutshell, it is competitive in price, small in size, big on power, high in efficiency, low in noise; all being fully modular at the same time. What more can you ask for? I think SilverStone has a real winner in their hands!"

Noctua Redux Fan Roundup On Vortez

"These are good fans. That NF-S12B is a surprisingly good fan. It was right up with the NF-P12 in pushing through the radiator. It helps that these fans are now not only price-competitive with comparable fans, they beat most of them with their reasonable prices. And let us not forget: all of the packaging is easy on the environment. It is all completely recyclable. If you have bought a heatsink from Noctua, you know it is a tradition for them. Now we see it in their fans. Good job!"

OCAholic Review Silverstone Raven RV05 Chassis

"The Raven RV05 is characterized by an aggressive design and uses a sophisticated and excellent cooling solution. The build quality is in perfect Silverstone style, with high quality materials and attention to every single detail. In addition, the bundle is also very rich and you get two 180 mm fans which are already installed in the bottom of the case."

Ozone Onda Pro Headset On FunkyKit

"The Onda Pro is a very light and comfortable headset and its size is also adaptable. I really like there is a travel case include and it is very decent and hard, so it will protect your headset when you are underway. Another great thing, you do not need to worry about installing anything, just plugin the headset and start playing!"

Bitfenix Fury PSU Reviewed By PureOC

"you realize that you could alter some of the sleeving to get some colored accents on the existing cables. Then the cogs start turning a bit more thinking of all the possibilities. Then you realize that this power supply includes a five year warranty, and suddenly the total package starts to look like an insanely good deal. For all of these reasons and more, we are happy to grant the BitFenix Fury 650G our PureOverclock Editor’s Choice award! The only “Fury” you should be experiencing is over not having this in your next build."

APH Networks Loving SilverStone Precision PS10 Chassis

"I think SilverStone understands the importance of silence, and this translates into a great chassis, which offers quite a bit of value. For one, SilverStone has provided a lot of removable vents to make it easier to clean these areas. Most lower-end cases do not even have these kind of extra openings to begin with, and seeing them on the Precision PS10 is a bonus. The overall aesthetics is a subjective choice, but I will say the front LED implementation is awesome."

Silverstone Nightjar Fanless PSU Impresses TechPowerUp

NH-D15 Another Winner For Noctua Reports APH Networks

"With many years of experience in high performance, noise optimized cooling solutions hailed by many around the world, Noctua has yet another winner in their hands. The NH-D15 is built upon the successful NH-D14, a mega sized heatsink that represents the epitome of cutting edge air cooling technology. Now with improved aerodynamics first seen in the NH-U14S and NH-U12S, combined with the latest NF-A15 fan, it is easy to see why the NH-D15 is such a successful performer on our charts once again."

Noctua NH-D14 Won't Let You Down Reports TweakTown

"we find the originator to a whole new class of CPU coolers to still be very worthy of all the praise and awards it was given upon its release. Granted, there are a lot of things to consider when looking back at a five year old design, and trying to apply it to today's systems. However, the blunt reality is that if you already own the NH-D14, and are used to its memory clearance issue, there is no real reason to upgrade unless clocking for the stars on air cooling."

eTeknix Check Out Thermaltake Core V71 Chassis

"Thermaltake have once again gone all out with their latest chassis; component support is incredibly high in the Core V71 and for those looking to invest in a high-end gaming rig, the cavernous interior is going make easy work of any high-end graphics cards, motherboards and more. The biggest factor is of course the cooling support, with extreme performance graphics cards and CPUs requiring significant air flow to help keep them cool, the more fan and radiator mounts you have to work with, the better. Obviously the Core V71 has a lot of support for a wide range of fan and radiator configurations and even if you’re not interested in saturating the chassis with a complicated custom loop cooling system, you’re still going to benefit from the 1 x 140mm and 3 x 200mm fans which come pre-installed."
