Introducing The New Bitfenix Spectre Xtreme Fans - Guru3D

"Cooling fans used in liquid cooling systems not only need to have a high airflow but also they need to be optimised for static pressure. The newly designed blades of the Spectre Xtreme not only look good but also improve the airflow of the fan to 66CFM while maintaining optimum static pressure. This makes the Spectre Xtreme fans an ideal choice for liquid cooling solutions."

ThinkComputers Writes Bitfenix Prodigy M SFF Chassis So Nice!

Creative Sound BlasterX H7 Headset On Hardware Heaven

"Back when we reviewed the H5 we noted that as far as build quality and design were concerned it was a very impressive headset. As the H7 uses essentially the same design, the same hold true here. Every part of the device feels quality and we noted no issues with assembly. There is loads of flex in the headband and more than enough movement in the tilt of the cups. It is also a lightweight headset which remains comfortable over time. As before the removable mic is a bonus which makes the H7 ideal for listening to music on the move, as we don’t have a massive mic boom pointing out of our head. Multi-platform compatibility (PC, Xbox, PS4, mobile and tablet) is a real plus too."

ASUS B150i Pro Gaming Aura On Hardware Heaven

"The B150i Pro Gaming Aura is a board which very much knows its identity and consumer. Who are they? The type of person who wants to build a compact system with significant case window but doesnt care about overclocking, only stability and good performance at stock speeds."

"Overall, the SilverStone Tundra TD02-Lite is a solid product with a good looking color scheme. It offers good cooling performance with two 120mm PWM fans. The cooler is small with a tiny pump/base, so it will fit even in small form factor cases."

TweakTown Review BitFenix Pandora ATX Chassis

"We like the simple layout without a mass of drive bays to take up the front of the chassis and destroy air flow like so many other designs do. We still like the shape, and elegance this chassis delivers. The ICON display offers a ton of potential to customize it to near anything you can think of, and the window on the left offers a superb view of everything you install, except for a few storage drives and the PSU. We also like the PSU cover, as most do, but adding room for water cooling at the front, allowing wiring to pass through it, and throwing in a pump bracket just sweetens the pot a bit. Also, with only two fans blowing through this chassis, the most we could hear from it was 26dB of noise with both fans running at full speed."

G.Skill MX780 Mouse On Report.... Tech Report That Is!

"In a market dominated by mice for right-handers only, G.Skill's MX780 is a great choice for ambidextrous and left-handed users alike. In fact, because of its customizability, I'd recommend it to everybody. G.Skill's attention to detail when designing this mouse is evident in little things like the short default lift-off distance of the sensor, the sturdy metal base plate, and the high-quality plastic used throughout. I was also impressed with the MX780's comfort in use and its customization options."

SteelSeries Siberia 200 Headset Review By APH Networks

"the SteelSeries Siberia 200 does what is promised. Sounds within game came through well, and the direction was easy to distinguish. In Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, it was easy to know the direction of the sounds, and I was able to hear all the in-game noises clearly. For other games, the sounds were good as well"

NiKKTech Review Deepcools Captain 240 AIO Cooling Loop

"What the CAPTAIN 240 White offers however is something you can’t get with any other AIO model and that’s a white/black color combination (not to mention the great looking reactor-like section) which thanks to several white PC cases, mainboards, graphics cards and PSUs is quite popular nowadays (especially among modders)."

ASUS STRIX-GTX980TI-DC3OC-6GD5-GAMING Graphics Card Review On OCInside

"Regarding the processing quality of the Asus Strix GeForce GTX 980Ti OC card we can say, that it’s absolutely flawless. The included software fulfills its purpose and leaves a lot of room for experimentation. The performance, which the Asus Strix GTX 980Ti OC Edition offers, is enough to play tomorrow’s top titles smooth and fast. The card stays cool, is not heard in idle mode and even under full load, the noise is tolerable. The GPU rarely sees temperatures above 80C."

NikkTech Review ASUS STRIX-R9FURY-DC3-4G Graphics Card

"The Radeon R9 Fury and Fury X lines of graphics cards by AMD were always ment to counter the GeForce GTX 980 and 980 Ti models by NVIDIA and judging by our charts the Radeon R9 Fury STRIX does exactly that, at least in terms of performance."

Thermaltake Core X9 Chassis Wows PC Perspective

"The opportunity that the Core X9 presents with its massive surface area is with the ability to create a clean and innovative design. The Core X9 provides the room for the user to integrate as much cooling and system components as they wish into the system while maintaining room for cleanup and cable routing / hiding. After going through the configuration and build out of the system design, I am comfortable stating that Thermaltake brought "Case Labs style" features to the mainstream enthusiast and modding community at an approachable price."

SteelSeries Siberia 800 Headset On MadShrimps

"The Siberia 800 wireless gaming headset flagship from SteelSeries does come with a Dolby-certified console and can be connected to a wide variety of devices thanks to the inputs/outputs on both breakout box and headset but also thanks to the supplied cables. The dual-battery setup is quite unique and permits us to swap between these in just under ten seconds. The display of the console is always on thanks to the OLED technology, shows a lot of settings which we can perform depending on the chosen interfaces and on the main screen we do have the battery levels listed, current volume levels, Dolby feature when enabled but also more."

TechPowerUp Praise Noctuas NH-D15S Cooler - Ideal For mITX & mATX Chassis!

"In my own opinion, the NH-D15S is the better cooler when compared to the NH-D15. The better expansion-slot clearance allows it to fit into far more builds, which gives it a wider appeal. That and the fact that users can still slap a second fan on for maximum performance without issue certainly doesn't hurt either. That second fan doesn't really matter on mainstream systems, but it would prove a bit more useful with AMD or Intel HEDT platforms. Noctua has definitely set a new bar in terms of what one can expect from monstrous heatsinks in that the NH-D15S is compatible with many mini-ITX and micro-ATX systems where the first expansion slot is PCIe x16."

LanOC Examine The Lower Profile Noctua NH-L9x65 CPU Cooler

"The NH-L9x65 just opens up even more options for AMD CPUs that have higher TDPs than the L9a can handle as well as the 6700K that caused the need for the L9x65 in our upcoming build. The move back to a universal mount does help with those options and it means if you want to switch to or from AMD or Intel you have the option. Like all Noctua coolers the NH-L9x65 is quiet and its cooling performance was spot on as well."
