"As far as build quality of the X99 Deluxe II goes, we have no complaints. Quality components are used across the PCB and ASUS have gone the extra mile in so many areas to enhance this board over many others, from the high quality PCIe slots and audio enhancements to revised CPU socket. Add to that they have also had customer experience very much in mind with various tools and connectors that are designed to make installation easy."

Thermaltake Core X31 Chassis On Think Computers

"I really love the motto of the Core X Series which is 'Our Core. Your Build'. Thermaltake really embraces this philosophy. Most components of this case can be completely removed or rearranged. So if you wanted to do a basic build you are covered, if you need to remove components to make room for water cooling you are covered, etc. I really like the idea of having a case that fits all of my needs, especially if I am new to building a system and later down the line I might get into water cooling or be upgrading my current system."

OCInside Report On Thermaltakes Suppressor F1 SFF Chassis

"The Thermaltake Suppressor F1 is a niche product. Because of its size it closes the gap between a compact ITX case and the possibility to use potent hardware and the necessary cooling. Owner of the Suppressor F1 also won’t need to make any compromises in their PSU choice or graphic card. Only the CPU heatsink size should be checked in terms of compatibility."

ASUS Unplugged GTX950-2G Graphics Card On Vortez

"The differential between this graphics card and other GTX 950s is the lack of any PCI express power connector. This distinguishing feature allows those with an aging computer system to still reap the benefits of a capable discreet graphics solution. The omission of a PCI express power connector and the significantly low power consumption of just 75W also means that system builders who are hitting the absolutely maximum values on their PSU can enjoy such graphics card too, because upgrading this type of product in such a scenario could mean a PSU upgrade is also mandatory - therefore GTX950-2G will alleviate a number of potential upgrade grievances."

Arozzi Enzo Racing Styled Chair Review By NikkTech

"The Enzo series may be one of the very first gaming chair lines released by Arozzi (launched alongside the Monza and Torretta ones) but still that doesn't mean it's lacking in features since its models offer high quality synthetic PU leather cover, adjustable height, 12 degrees rocking/tiltable seat function, large and thick padded armrests, class-4 gaslift capable of holding up to 120Kg (actually even more but the construction of the Enzo is limited at 120Kg) and 5 durable nylon twin-wheels. Arozzi also currently offers the Enzo series in black, black & blue, black & green, black & orange, black & red and black & white color combinations which i think are just enough to cover if not all then at least most consumers out in the market."

SilverStone Strider Titanium ST80F-TI PSU Review On APH Networks

"The SilverStone Strider Titanium ST80F-TI 800W is yet another quality power supply from Enhance that delivers great performance according to our affiliates with professional load testing equipment. Not only does it have top notch efficiency even at low loads, it can also fit in tight mITX cases with a depth of only 15cm. The company also lengthened the warranty to five years, which is something I am happy to see."

Overclockers Club Review Noctua NH-C14S CPU Cooler

"What does the NH-C14S bring to the table? It gets the job done with a single, more powerful fan, and the new offset of the fin stack provides clearance for the first PCIe slot on your motherboard. The C-type design gives you a much lower profile that lets you build your system in most HTPC-style cases. You still get the options of using either Low Profile mode or High Clearance mode. And of course, all that air the NF-A14 moves through the cooler gets directed down across the RAM modules, VRM, and other motherboard components. That amounts to extra cooling for free. The SecuFirm2 mounting system is just the greatest thing. Installing a cooler really can't be much easier. It really needs to be an industry standard in my opinion."
