Thermaltake MEKA G-Unit Illuminated Mechanical Keyboard Review

Thermaltake’s eSPORTS division has updated their MEKA line of mechanical keyboards with the Thermaltake MEKA G-Unit Illuminated Edition gaming keyboard, complete with full red LED illumination on every key and Cherry MX Black linear mechanical switches throughout. Including features comparable to many other premium keyboards, will Thermaltake Technology Co., Ltd.’s eSPORTS offering distance itself from the pack? As always, that’s what Benchmark Reviews intends to find out.

Zalman Reserator 3 MAX Nanofluid AIO Liquid CPU Cooler Review

Zalman has always had a unique approach to CPU cooling. Focusing on quiet performance, they’ve once again returned with their distinctive circular design to…wait, what’s this? An all-in-one water cooler with a round radiator?? Well…from a company known for “Cool Innovations,” I guess we shouldn’t be surprised to see such a unique contribution to the All-In-One CPU cooler market. When you first see it in person, it isn’t difficult to see why the Zalman Reserator 3 MAX AIO liquid CPU cooler was given the Innovation award from the Consumer Electronics Show at the beginning of 2013. Complete with an infusion of nanofluids and a claimed 400W of cooling power, does the Reserator 3 MAX have the performance to back up the looks? Benchmark Reviews is ready to place this unique AIO nanofluid cooler on an overclocked FX processor to see what the Reserator 3 MAX is capable of.

Sporting a horizontal vapor chamber and enhanced-life “POM” polyoxymethylene bearing 140mm fans and a car-engine motif similar to the previous generation V10, V8 and V6/GTS coolers, the V8 GTS promises to pack a lot of performance under the hood. Benchmark Reviews has a chance to see how the first retail horizontal vapor chamber heatsink will affect CPU cooling performance in testing the Cooler Master V8 GTS 140mm CPU cooler.

SilverStone Tundra SST-TD03 All-In-One Liquid CPU Cooler Review

Well here’s something a little different. SilverStone Technology has released their first line of all-in-one liquid coolers, part of the Tundra series. Sporting a patented fin design with claims of 40% higher cooling efficiency, new 120mm fans in a push/pull arrangement on a 45mm thick radiator and a custom water block, the SilverStone Tundra SST-TD03 All-In-One Liquid CPU Cooler that Benchmark Reviews has received for testing is a refreshingly unique addition to the growing and popular all-in-one water-cooling segment.

SilverStone SST-AR03 CPU Cooler Heatsink Review

SilverStone may be known for their cooling, but not necessarily their CPU coolers. As a company, they’ve brought forward many innovations and unique, successful approaches to the ATX case standard with their AP series fans and rotated motherboard enclosures. It’s not that SilverStone is a stranger to CPU cooling – there were the Nitrogen special-application series before the new Argon series, as well as the Heligon high-performance line of heat-sinks. The Argon AR01, AR02, and AR03 are all designed to be more accessible alternatives for enthusiasts, with each model fulfilling a specific purpose. Sporting six 6mm direct-contact heatpipes and a 140mm wide tower-style heatsink assembly, the AR03 is the top option available in the Argon family with the most cooling capacity. Benchmark Reviews will have a chance to find out if the AR03 belongs at the top of the Argon family.

The SilverStone SST-AR01 is designed to be a price/performance leader in the market, and is the cooler that Benchmark Reviews will be taking a look at today.

NZXT H630 Silent Ultra Tower Computer Case Review

NZXT has dabbled in quiet cases before (Hush, H2). While I don’t personally have experience with those particular chassis, I’ve gathered the attempts in the past have left consumers wanting. It appears a revived Phantom line has also provided another opportunity for NZXT Technologies to tackle the “silent” segment once again – can NZXT bring the H series of chassis to new levels with the H630 Silent Ultra Tower Computer Case? Benchmark Reviews has a chance to answer this question.

Corsair Carbide Air 540 Cube Case Review

Starting with the Obsidian series, Corsair has systematically released a chassis to tackle almost every segment. With most of the segments covered, Corsair has rethought the ATX case and has released something a little… different. Launching at the top of the Carbide series (designed to be focused on performance and high-end features, while still being accessible to every builder), the Carbide Air 540 cube-style computer case brings a unique option to the series. Benchmark Reviews tests to see if it’s worth the $139.99 price of admission.

MAD CATZ R.A.T. M Wireless Mobile Mouse Review

Mad Catz arguably changed the gaming mouse market when they released their R.A.T. into the wild. With an unusual appearance and a previously unapproachable level of customization, the subsequent R.A.T. series of mice went on to win multiple awards and generate a lot of interest. Today, Benchmark Reviews has a chance to take a closer look at one of the newcomers to the R.A.T. line, the R.A.T. M wireless mobile gaming mouse. Does this rodent have what it takes to back up its heritage?

Razer Ouroboros Elite Gaming Mouse Review

In 2009, Razer started working on a mouse with some ambitious goals. It would be a gaming-grade, wireless hybrid mouse. It would be ambidextrous, even adjustable – allowing the user to create that perfect fit. It would pack in the latest sensors and gaming technology, complete with a cloud-based driver solution. Three years later in late 2012, Razer finally released the Ouroboros. As soon as it was released, it quickly sold out of stock online and in stores and has since disappeared from regular channels. At Benchmark Reviews, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a Razer Ouroboros gaming mouse and take it for a spin.
