REVIEW: Zowie XL2430 Monitor

Zowie XL2430 Monitor Review

The Zowie XL2430 is a good Gaming Monitor and even better if you’re an aspiring Pro Gamer thanks to the fast TN 144Hz panel. The additional features such as the S Switch, Cover and Headset Holder further increase its desirably and value. But the image quality is not the best, the price is high and 144Hz Monitors can be bought for far less…


REVIEW: NZXT S340 Elite Case

NZXT S340 Elite Case Review

I have to confess that if I were recommending a build the NZXT S340 is likely the Case that I would recommend. Now in its updated NZXT S340 Elite guise the Case not only looks better, but it’s easier to install into and packs some additional features that are perfect VR. It’s still good value for money too…


REVIEW: be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 Case

be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 Case Review

There’s no doubt that the be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 is one of the finest Cases we’ve ever seen here at pcG. It’s beautifully built, elegant in its styling and imposing (due to its size) on the desktop. It’s also packed with features too, but to get the most out of it is going to require not only a shed load of components but also a fair bit of effort too.

BitFenix Aurora Case Review

Over the last week the BitFenix Aurora has really grown on me. For one it’s a good looking case and on top of that it offers up a good set of features and offers up a nice simple build and its well priced too.


REVIEW: ROCCAT Skeltr Keyboard

ROCCAT Skeltr Keyboard Review

I’m a little unsure what to think of the new ROCCAT Skeltr; on the one hand it’s a good looking membrane Gaming keyboard with RGB illumination with clever mobile device integration. But on the other hand it’s a £150 keyboard and there’s simply not enough here to justify that price tag in my opinion.


REVIEW: Lian-Li PC-K5WX Case

Lian-Li PC-K5WX Case Review

I have to say that I’m somewhat disappointed by the Lian-Li PC-K5WX but maybe I was expecting too much. I at least thought I’d get a Lian-Li Case, but the PC-K5WX is simply a Case, a Case like many other Cases available today.


REVIEW: SteelSeries Rival 700 Mouse

SteelSeries Rival 700 Mouse Review

The idea of having a tactile Feedback for cooldowns on a mouse is simply genius. This along with a plethora of additional features and an impressive optical senor makes the SteelSeries Rival 700 simply one of the best mice I’ve ever tested.


REVIEW: Speedlink Ultor Keyboard

Speedlink Ultor Keyboard Review

The Speedlink Ultor is a great little Ten-Keyless Gaming Keyboard and from a pure hardware point of view there’s nothing to fault. That’s as long as you can look past the poor software and ridiculous (IMO) colour scheme. A red keyboard with blue lighting, what were they thinking!?

Asus Sabertooth 990FX R3.0 Motherboard Review

All in all there’s a lot to like about the new Asus Sabertooth 990FX R3.0 motherboard. In its latest guise it not only looks good but it’s super stable and it now features ASUS’ Aura RGB lighting too. The only thing that may hold it back is the price…


REVIEW: Asus GeForce GTX 1060 Strix OC Graphics Card

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…
