Acer Predator X34 Monitor Review

Acer Predator X34 Monitor Review Gaming at 3440×1440 is a sight to behold in most scenarios and I’m not so sure I could ever go back to mere 1080p gaming or even 1440p. Depending on the game, the size and slight curvature definitely increased immersion. While a few games lack native 3440×1440 support, you can …

ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Impact Motherboard Review

ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Impact Motherboard Review When you look at the stock performance, the Maximus VIII Impact is going to deliver results in a narrow envelope when compared to other motherboards.

Synology DiskStation DS1515+ NAS Review

Synology DiskStation DS1515+ NAS Review Does it fully live up to my expectations from Just Cause 2? Not quite and that is mainly for three reasons. The first is the quirk with the missiles needing to be spam-clicked. While I do not hold that quirk against the game on its own, it is enough of …

Corsair Katar Optical Gaming Mouse Review

Corsair Katar Optical Gaming Mouse Review At MSRP, I’m a little put off by the mouse. It is solid build wise, but there is no desire to have it. I would take a crappier mouse just to have some side buttons; not just for browsing, but for gaming. It’s my favorite melee button selection and …

AZZA Zen 8100 PC Case Review

AZZA Zen 8100 PC Case Review Onwards! Alright, it’s not often I don’t have much on the negative side to say. AZZA has a few minor flaws for an overall decent chassis, one of which is the fans. Having fans with a fixed speed is great for some quiet operations, but it doesn’t help with …

IOGear Chimera M2 Wired/Wireless Dual Mode Mouse Review I also am not really a fan of wireless mice because I hate when things die on me, as I am too lazy to plug them in. But I have not recharged this mouse in the two weeks I have been using it, and I just went …

Corsair Scimitar RGB Optical MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse Review

Corsair Scimitar RGB Optical MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse Review In the end I’m actually quite impressed with the Corsair Scimitar.

Gigabyte Z170X-UD5 Motherboard Review

Gigabyte Z170X-UD5 Motherboard Review One drawback that was obvious right from the start was that I was seeing lower levels of performance running at stock speeds. What I found was that the board only boosts one core up to 4.2GHz, following Intel’s specification to the letter. This is something the comparison boards don’t quite follow. …

G.SKILL Ripjaws SV710 Virtual 7.1 Headset Review

G.SKILL Ripjaws SV710 Virtual 7.1 Headset Review Quality seems to be put into most of the design, but there are a few flaws. The most fatal flaw is the suspension pad.

G.SKILL Ripjaws MX780 RGB Gaming Mouse Review

G.SKILL Ripjaws MX780 RGB Gaming Mouse Review The main problem I found with this mouse is with using cloth mouse pads – lifting the mouse would cause it to stop working momentarily when sat back down as if it were recalibrating.
