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.

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.

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 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 …

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, …

AMD FX-9590 & FX-9370 CPU Review

AMD FX-9590 & FX-9370 CPU Review The FX-9370 acted in all respects like the FX 9590 when it came to overclocking and reached almost as high, albeit using a bit more voltage to get the job done.
