Noctua NH-L9x65 Is An Exceptional Heatsink Writes Neoseeker

"The NH-L9x65 uses four heat pipes with aluminum dissipation fins spaced to maximize air flow from the fan which is held in place with wire fan clips, and attaches to the motherboard with the SecuFirm2 Mounting System. All of these features add up to an exceptional heatsink cooler that will help make your HTPC or SFF system operate at peak performance."

Thermaltake Core V21 Chassis On NiKKtech

"the V21 has two very important characteristics, the ability to rearrange most of its interior and exterior and the overwhelming cooling potential. The first one may not be something many users will choose to use since the horizontal positioning of the mainboard is already ideal for the size of the V21 but the 2nd one is certain to appeal not only to gamers and enthusiasts but even professionals since the ability to use up to 5 radiators and/or 11 fans is something we don’t see even in towers 3-4 times the size. And then there’s the stackable design, almost tool-less design, the 6 drive trays, 5 PCI expansion slots which can be used with cards up to 350mm in length, room for up to 185mm tall CPU coolers and space for up to 200mm long PSUs. Can you ask for anything more from a mATX/mITX PC Case?"

Vale - Industry Legend & Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Has Passed Away

"Nintendo President and CEO Satoru Iwata has died at only 55 years old after battling cancer for over a year. His unexpected passing marks the end of a wildly inventive and broadly celebrated 13-year stretch helming the iconic Kyoto video games company." - TIME.

Take a moment to think back over the influence Nintendo had in your life since he joined the company in 2000. Think Nintendo DS. Think Nintendo Wii. His extraordinary contribution to the video gaming industry will be sadly missed and he will be long remembered!

Thermaltake Commander FT Fan Controller Review On TweakTown

"Commander FT has a very solid feel, and even when pressing hard on the touchscreen, there is no flex or noises associated with such actions. We also liked that the wiring is easy to disconnect and plug back in, not only for wire management purposes, but it also ensures that you won't accidentally pull the wiring out of the clips if you do find reasons to remove any of them from the PCB."

ASUS R7 370 STRIX Graphics Card Review On OCaholic

"The R7 370 STRIX is yet another good custom card from ASUS. The DirectCU II cooler, which is capable of deactivating the fans, when the cards is in idle does a great job. Apart from that there is a high quality power design and memory, which can be overclocked by quite a bit. AMD has been claiming that the R7 370 should be suitable for 1080p gaming. Having a closer look at the results gathered in 10 different games, this is definitely the case. The card is capable of pumping out 40 to 50 fps even at very high settings."
