COUGAR 600M Gaming Mouse Review

COUGAR 600M Gaming Mouse Review The scroll wheel was an issue I only found from “longer” use, that I probably would not have noticed in a typical review testing time frame. After enough use, it started to squeak a bit, and in general make more noise. However, enough use later, and it’s back to no …

Grand Theft Auto V Game Review

Grand Theft Auto V Game Review The graphics are very good and what blemishes that do exist are easily forgiven. Performance could be better, but as I suspect that comes down to my specific hardware and how I go for highest playable settings, I would consider this a concern rather than an issue. The story …

Patriot Ignite 480GB Hard Drive Review

Patriot Ignite 480GB Hard Drive Review Patriot has been silent on the SSD front for a while letting the older products fill the space until the next versions of its latest drive were ready for delivery. Diving into the lower cost segment, Patriot used the Phison S3110 controller to manage the asynchronous micron based MLC …

Noctua NH-D9L CPU Cooler Review

Noctua NH-D9L CPU Cooler Review Noctua, like always, continues to make its products with considerable thought and care. The NH-D9L fills a even greater gap than the NH-U9S, while still covering the basics by focus on the low performance stock coolers from both Intel and AMD and provides something that can dissipate a large volume …

Noctua NH-U9S CPU Cooler Review

Noctua NH-U9S CPU Cooler Review Noctua has once again made a product with considerable thought and care. The NH-U9S fills that gab between the low performance stock coolers from both Intel and AMD, and provides something that can dissipate a large volume of heat within small confinement. I often run into this problem when reviewing …

ECS Z97-MACHINE Motherboard Review

ECS Z97-MACHINE Motherboard Review As always, moving on to the overclocking section is fun. While I don’t have a great 4770K to test with (the highest I ever get seems to be 4.4GHz regardless of the board) the ECS Z97-MACHINE managed to max my highest overclock and I literally had to change two settings to …

Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Challenger Prime Gaming Keyboard Review

Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Challenger Prime Gaming Keyboard Review The Challenger Prime is a bit of everything, which is the main reason why it just doesn’t do anything particularly well. I started off loving the keyboard for its lights and low price. Slowly over a few weeks, I grew to dislike the keyboard. Not because it …

Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate CPU Cooler Review

Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate CPU Cooler Review Cooling capacity is dependent on air flow and the Ultimate has you covered. You have close to 300CFM of air at your command, so expect to notice the fans when you crank up the heat and with a cooler this size, a little fan noise just goes with …

Kingston HyperX Cloud II Headset Review

Kingston HyperX Cloud II Headset Review Overall, Kingston has created a great headset. Not only is the sound exceptionally good for the price range, I would suggest buying these for the headphones alone. The Microphone is just like an added bonus in my eyes. The Cloud II was very comfortable thanks to the memory foam …

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell Game Review

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell Game Review Should we go to Hell to rescue the Boss of the Saints, or leave the devil his due? I believe it is worth jumping in, but only if you are already a fan of the franchise. If you are (and I admit that I am) you will …

be quiet! Pure Rock CPU Cooler Review

be quiet! Pure Rock CPU Cooler Review Performance was on par with similar size coolers. The Pure Rock is a nice jump beyond OEM cooling, but still a sizeable notch below the much larger (and signifcantly more expensive) dual tower coolers with 140mm fans. However, it did prove that it can stand up to a …

ID-Cooling SE-204K CPU Cooler Review

ID-Cooling SE-204K CPU Cooler Review Performance was on par with similar sized (and price) coolers. The SE-204K is a nice jump beyond OEM cooling, but still a sizable notch below the larger dual tower coolers with 140mm fans, and that is no surprise. For daily use in a mild gaming rig, this cooler will be …

Dying Light Game Review

Dying Light Game Review Should we try to save Harran or let the infestation go unabated? I have a hard time answering that, as my own feeling is to fail to recommend Dying Light. Please understand that failing to recommend a game does not mean it is bad. In this case I just do not …

AKRACING AK-7002-CS Premium Gaming Chair Review

AKRACING AK-7002-CS Premium Gaming Chair Review First thing first, this chair is designed to appear AND feel like a racing chair. If you’ve never sat in a racing type seat before, you should know their design and build isn’t meant to be overly soft. This chair is quite a bit stiffer than your common squishy …

Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Talon Gaming Mouse Review

Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Talon Gaming Mouse Review For playing games, I typically play a wide range from RTS to FPS within just a few hours. For the last two years I’ve been using a Razer Deathadder, which has the same basic layout with only two extra buttons on the side. What was surprising is that …

Luxa2 EnerG Slim 10,000mAh Power Bank Review

Luxa2 EnerG Slim 10,000mAh Power Bank Review The Luxa2 EnerG Silm 10,000mAh Power Bank is a great gadget with a solid construction and build. These power banks are often hard to review in such a short amount of time. While working on other reviews, I was able to travel with it and use it daily …

COUGAR 600K Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

COUGAR 600K Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review All in all, the COUGAR 600K is quite a nice looking keyboard. It has improved my thoughts on COUGAR as a brand in its entirety. A while back, I saw COUGAR as a cheap (though expensive) peripheral maker. That thought has been whipped away with the last few products …

ECS Deluxe Z97-PK Motherboard Review

ECS Deluxe Z97-PK Motherboard Review Personally, I feel this board, the ECS Z97-PK along with a G3258 processor is a great entry level system that is both affordable and stacks up decent performance especially in games. No it’s not the fastest thing on the market, but it doesn’t always have to be. You can play …

Cooler Master Nepton 240M CPU Cooler Review

Cooler Master Nepton 240M CPU Cooler Review So what makes the 240M stand out from the others? The longer, heavier FEP tubes on the 240M allow flexibility when installing the radiator. And those thumb screws – wow, they really make the installation process much easier. You can quickly get the radiator and fans in position …

G.Skill RipJaws 4 16GB 2800MHz Memory Review G.Skills Ripjaws 4 modules performed well in the comparison testing exceeding the performance of the comparison modules in almost every test at the XMP 2.0 rated speeds and timings.

The Crew Video Game Review

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 …

XFX R9 285 Double Dissipation Black Edition Video Card Review

XFX R9 285 Double Dissipation Black Edition Video Card Review Compared to the competitors R9 285 offerings, XFX R9 285 was able to deliver the highest core clock speed out of the three cards I have looked at reaching 1136MHz.
