Asus GeForce GTX 1060 Strix OC Graphics Card Review

Once again I find myself blown away by Asus’ latest Nividia GTX Strix Series Graphics Card. The Asus GeForce GTX 1060 Strix OC is (like it’s bigger brother the 1070 Strix OC) one of the best GPU’s on the market today thanks to that awesome DirectCU III cooler with Aura RGB lighting. It’s fast, cool and quite but the AMD RX 480 still runs it close at times…

Toshiba Q300 Pro 512GB SSD Review

Once again Toshiba brings us an impressive SSD in the Toshiba Q300 Pro 512GB, it may not have the looks, but it’s certainly got it where it counts. But its high price tag (at the time of review) makes it look very expensive for the capacity and performance it offers.

AMD Radeon RX 480 Graphics Card Review

The sort of performance offered up by the AMD Radeon RX 480 for the price that is asked is in my mind impressive, but (thanks to a price drop) already the new Nvidia GTX 1060 is snapping at its heels, but (of course) it still costs more.

Nitro Concepts C80 Pure Series Gaming Chair Review

Ok so the Nitro Concepts C80 Pure Gaming Chair may not feature the best build quality and it’s a pig to assemble especially on your own. But once you sit in it all those woes will be forgotten as the C80 Pure is one comfy Gaming Chair.

ROCCAT Kiro Mouse Review

Simply put the ROCCAT Kiro is a damn good Gaming mouse with or without its hotswappable Sideparts. The combination of a great shape with good ergonomics, a good optical sensor a great software earns the Kiro our highest accolade!

Crucial Ballistix Tactical 3000MHz DDR4 16GB Kit Review

Crucial have served up another great set of memory modules in the form of the Crucial Ballistix Tactical 3000MHz 16GB Kit. The kit offers great performance, good looks with a low profile but the price (at the time of review) is too high as there’s simply too much competition…

SteelSeries Apex M500 Keyboard Review

The SteelSeries Apex M500 is a damn good Gaming keyboard, but it is no more than that! But to decry what it’s not got would be to miss the point of this keyboard entirely. This keyboard is for Pro Gamers and not so much for enthusiasts like perhaps you and me…

Asus GeForce GTX 1070 Strix OC Graphics Card Review

Ok, so the new Nvidia GTX 1070 is undeniably a good Graphics Card, but the Asus GeForce GTX 1070 Strix OC is even better. This is thanks to an impressive factory overclock, a great (yet quiet) cooler and impressive RGB LED illumination.

 

REVIEW: ROCCAT Ryos MK FX Keyboard

ROCCAT Ryos MK FX Keyboard Review

The ROCCAT Ryos MK FX is a big Gaming keyboard in every way! Not only is it big in size and not only does it have a big price tag, but it’s big on features too. It seems to have it all (apart from USB that is) from Cherry MX keys to RGB lighting and from the additional programmable keys to the sublime Swarm software. This really is a proper Gaming keyboard…
