Thrustmaster TX Ferrari 458 Italia Edition Racing Wheel On PC Perspective

"The Thrustmaster TX F458 Italia Edition is overall an outstanding wheel that takes the racing experience up a couple of notches from my previous wheel, not to mention a totally different experience from a keyboard, joystick, or a non-FFB wheel."

SilverStone RVZ02 Chassis Reviewed By TechSpot

"It's as easy on the eyes as it is to work with. Surprisingly affordable. Smaller than its predecessor but can still handle GPUs up to 13" long. No case cooling? No problem! Smart design that uses component fans for airflow."

APH Networks On SteelSeries Apex M800 Keyboard

"The SteelSeries Apex M800 features some of the most amazing lighting systems in the industry; with highly customizable individual key illumination, cool preset templates for those who do not feel like being creative at the moment, and stunning animated effects to simply wow people. The software is also stable and intuitive to use, making the overall experience very positive. But its amazing lighting system goes beyond just eye candy. Stuff like Cooldown Timers and GameSense adds a whole new layer of user experience to your gaming setup. Simply put, the Apex M800 is brilliant, and quite literally, too."

Bitfenix Alchemy 2.0 Magnetic LED Strips Review On TweakTown

"While you could go and buy a whole roll on eBay, you are stuck to a single color, need a controller if they are RGB, and also need to wire it all up nice and cleanly. For a bit of a cost, BitFenix does all the work for you and makes it very easy for anyone using a steel chassis to mount in tons of light. It is not permanent, so if needed to be moved or adjusted it can be, and all you have to do is pop open a plastic box and click them into place and enjoy."

Vortez Check Out The ASUS SABERTOOTH Z170 MARK 1 Motherboard

"Turning to the performance, SABERTOOTH is no stranger to consistent and strong results. We found this motherboard to react very well to the selection of benchmarks from our suite and achieving a decent overclock was easy thanks to the easy to use BIOS and responsive hardware. Our milestone has been 4.7GHz with the Intel Core i7-6700K and SABERTOOTH attained this figure without any problems at all."

"At the end of the day the ASUS Radeon R9 390X STRIX 8GB is a well built graphics card that is capable of gaming at pretty much any resolution out there today. The latest generation DirectCU III cooling solution is beefy"

APH Networks Review SilverStones EBA01 Headphone Stand

"I was talking to my friend about how I could succinctly wrap up the review of the SilverStone Ensemble EBA01, to which she aptly responded, "It works." Joking aside, this is a concise and correct way of summing up the EBA01, because it definitely works. Furthermore, it looks great too. Starting with the aesthetics, this is one of SilverStone's best looking products we have reviewed, and it makes sense."

Thermaltake Suppressor F51 Chassis Wows eTeknix

"I really like this chassis, sure it’s got a lot in common with its rivals, but when you’re designing a silence focused chassis, you’re already aiming for a tightly closed up, fairly understated design anyway. The main difference here is that the Thermaltake chassis brings even better water cooling support and is Thermaltake ECS approved, as well as stealth hard drive mounts behind the motherboard, better cable management and more at a price that remains competitive with its rivals. Build quality is rock solid. The side panels alone are incredibly strong and I certainly wouldn’t like to stub my toe on this chassis any time soon"

Peter Donnell - eTeknix.

ASUS Z170 Deluxe Review By OCAholic

"ASUS has a beautiful looking BIOS when it comes to their Signature series motherboards. The UEFI BIOS gets a black background and there are a few additional blue and white design elements. Meanwhile it's almost normal that a BIOS is complete, offering countless features. If you're looking for overclocking options you'll find a great many of them and they are equally practical for novices and extreme overclockers. We always love the pre-defined profiles, which make overclocking quite a bit more efficient. Boosting our CPU to 5.0 GHz was absolutely no problem at all."

Everything About The Noctua NH-L9x65 Is Remarkable Says OverclockersClub

"The coolers I have tested from Noctua have so far been made for the high thermal loads you see with overclocking. They are by nature massive and capable of moving large volumes of air, and of course they stand out on any motherboard. While large coolers are impressive and fun to show off, for small form factor builds you need a cooler that can get the job done in a small space. And that is just what the NH-L9x65 does. The engineering that went into the entire package for the NH-L9x65 is remarkable, from literally the box and internal packaging, to the installation hardware, cooler, and fan. But if you have ever used a Noctua cooler (and I mean this as a compliment), this is just another day at the office."

ASUS Z170 Maximus VIII Hero Motherboard Sports Perfect Colour Matching Writes eTeknix

"Finally, a manufacturer has taken the gaming colour scheme of the typical red, as used by almost all manufacturers these days and flipped it on its head; the Rog series is now grey! This is great news for almost everyone, it now means you can have a great colour variation within the case and not have to worry about the motherboard being a limiting factor. Another great feature with this is the LED system, with full RGB colour changing; you have perfect colour matching to whatever colour scheme you end up choosing."

ASUS Z170-DELUXE Motherboard Review By TechPowerUp

"Many weeks have passed since I had my hands on my first Intel Z170-based product, and that time has allowed ASUS to tune their BIOS well, bringing in wide memory clocking capabilities and a high level of system performance that is deserving of their high-end mainstream product. It clocks well, is rock-stable, and has all the high-speed drive options you could want for a high-performance PC."

NikkTech Check Out Thermaltakes Suppressor F51 Mid Tower Chassis

"Thermaltake has once again done a great job in releasing a high quality product with plenty of features in a market overflowing with “mediocre” products... the sound-dampening panels work as advertised and having enough space to fit the largest CPU coolers, longer graphics cards, up to 10 2.5/3.5” drives and up to 10 fans and/or 4 radiators is really great. The 4-port fan speed controller is also a great feature"

The Core X9 Chassis From Thermaltake On TechSpot

"Thermaltake's Core X9 is a serious amount of case for the money and it doesn't feel like it was built to a strict budget. The swappable side panels and I/O panel are a nice touch, the massive fan and radiator support is great, the tool-free drive bays work well and so do the magnetic dust filters."

ASUS Maximus VIII Hero Z170 Motherboard Reviewed By Guru3D

"The Asus Maximus VIII Hero is a solid performer even at this early stage of BIOS development and that’s a good indication that the Hero will only get better as time passes and the BIOS matures. COnsidering it was the First SkyLake to appear on the test bench merely hours after the Intel I7 6700K hit the door Asus did a bang up job on providing a bench ready Z170 board. That says a lot of Asus by providing a fully functional chicken and egg board that provided solid overclocking and an overall enjoyable computing platform."
