The Crew Video Game Review Should we buckle up and go for a ride in The Crew, or let this one drive by? Personally I did enjoy the game, so yes, I would recommend playing it. I am not sure if it is quite worth its full retail price though. It is a fun game …

Assassin’s Creed Unity Video Game Review

Assassin’s Creed Unity Video Game Review So, is it worth visiting the French Revolution and fighting for the Assassins? Not really. As it is now, we are talking about an ‘it was a mediocre time, it was the worst of times’ when it comes to the general experience and the performance. Even if the performance …

Reeven Ouranos RC-1401 CPU Cooler Review

Reeven Ouranos RC-1401 CPU Cooler Review The latest releases from Reeven cover both ends of the spectrum. On the one hand, there are the low profile Steropes and Brontes, aimed at the small form factor and HTPC builds. The designs focus on limited size and not so much on knock-out capacity, which the testing proved. …

Cooler Master Mizar Gaming Mouse Review

Cooler Master Mizar Gaming Mouse Review In the end the CM Mizar is still ruling the roost of my desktop. My past favorite has taken a backseat for a bit to allow the new top dog to settle in. Although with my small hands I tend to prefer mice a little smaller than this one, …

Reeven Brontes RC-1001 CPU Cooler Review

Reeven Brontes RC-1001 CPU Cooler Review Like the Steropes, the Brontes fills a different niche that is defined more by space constraints than by overall capacity. So again, I have to look at it from a different perspective, which is for its targeted use. Most HTPC systems are not driven to the thermal limits like …

Diamond USB 3.0/2.0 to HDMI/DVI Mini Ultra Dock Review

Diamond USB 3.0/2.0 to HDMI/DVI Mini Ultra Dock Review With USB 3.0 up and working, the Ultra Dock still gave me rather mixed feelings. It was nice that it no longer appeared “broken,” but the performance wasn’t quite what I was hoping for. The tablet, as expected, was limited a bit by the Bay Trail …

Diamond Boost Radeon R9 270X Video Card Review

Diamond Boost Radeon R9 270X Video Card Review Overclocking Diamond’s R9 270X was about as straight forward as it gets. With a lack of voltage control the only means of improving current flow to the core was by increasing the power limit settings. By maxing this setting out at +20%, I was able to boost …

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Game Review

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Game Review Should the denizens of Mordor come to fear the dead ranger, or should the dead be left to their end? In my opinion, bring the terror. Shadow of Mordor is a very fun game that does a great deal right, to the point that the developers should be quite …

Gamer Storm Maelstrom 240 CPU Cooler Review

Gamer Storm Maelstrom 240 CPU Cooler Review I’ve been really impressed with the Maelstrom 240. I have to say that initially it did not jump out at me (aside from the red fans) By that I mean, I wasn’t expecting anything out of the ordinary given the array of AIO liquid coolers on the market …

Phanteks Enthoo Luxe PC Case Review

Phanteks Enthoo Luxe PC Case Review I’m going to cover a few more things that really makes the chassis stand out.

COUGAR 700M Mouse and Speed Mouse Pad Review

COUGAR 700M Mouse and Speed Mouse Pad Review The 700M is quite the mouse if you give yourself time to adjust. Perhaps I’ve just been set in a style of mouse lately, but I did find this one in particular to be very difficult to get used to. Nonetheless, I did get used to it …

PowerColor R9 285 Turbo Duo Video Card Review After settling on a 1075MHz clock speed for the core I moved on to the memory and used the same strategy before fine tuning the result at 1511MHz. Overall the boost in core clock speed over the 945MHz factory clock speed was 130MHz on the core or …

ASUS Z97-Deluxe & Z97-A Motherboard Review

ASUS Z97-Deluxe & Z97-A Motherboard Review Looking at the baseline performance, I did not see anything terribly out of the ordinary as you might expect. All Z97 boards will perform within a specific envelope when equipped with identical hardware. Overclocking follows this guideline for the most part. Between the Z97-A and Z97-Deluxe NFC & WLC, …
