Crucial BX200 480GB SSD Review

There’s still not too much to get excited about in the world of SSDs, but the Crucial BX200 480GB proves otherwise. Crucial have a decent looking drive with a high capacity, great performance and a budget price. Now surely that’s a little bit exiting, don’t you think!?


REVIEW: Scythe Fuma CPU Cooler by James

Scythe Fuma CPU Cooler Review

The Scythe Fuma has caught me a little off guard as I wasn’t expecting to be quite as impressed as I am! Not only is this a good looking CPU Cooler, but it’s also the best cooler when it comes to performance that we’ve tested so far. Add to that a retail price of below £40, and we have the icing on an already tasty cake!


REVIEW: Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 2400MHz 16GB Kit by James

Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 2400MHz 16GB Kit Review

The Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 2400MHz 16GB Kit may not be revolutionary, but that doesn’t prevent them from being desirable. If white’s your colour then these 2400MHz modules come highly recommended, as they’re well made, look good and perform well.


REVIEW: Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 5 Case by James

Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 5 Case Review

The Cooler Master Mastercase Pro 5 may not be as revolutionary as all of the hype that surrounded it suggested, but! The Mastercase is a damn good case that’s undeniably well made and well thought out. But it’s still a little lacking when it comes to desirability and that’s a bit of shame…


REVIEW: MSI Z170M Mortar Motherboard by James

Date: January 19, 2016
MSI Z170M Mortar Motherboard Review

The out of the box performance of the MSI Z170M Mortar may be a little lacking as is the number of features. But once overclocked this little board is capable of great things and at under £100, you simply cannot go wrong…


REVIEW: Raijintek Styx Case by James

Date: January 15, 2016
Raijintek Styx Case Review

Installing a system into the Raijintek Styx is no easy task, and this is unfortunately made more awkward by certain aspects of its design. But once complete all of those installation woes quickly fade, as you admire what is undeniably a pretty and elegant little case.


REVIEW: G.Skill Trident Z 3000MHz 16GB Kit by James

Date: January 12, 2016
G.Skill Trident Z 3000MHz 16GB Kit Review

Memory/RAM is simply not as interesting as it used to be some 5 years ago, but with the Trident Z modules G.Skill have genuinely injected some new life into this component. The Trident Z modules are simply some of the coolest looking and well made made modules I’ve seen. And if you’re looking for the best, they’re fast too!


REVIEW: SilverStone Strider Platinum Series 750W Power Supply by James

Date: January 9, 2016
SilverStone Strider Platinum Series 750W Power Supply Review

The Silverstone Strider Platinum Series 750W is the world’s smallest fully modular ATX Power Supply. It’s got a power output of 750W (enough for a dual GPU system) and it’s got a Platinum 80-Plus efficiency rating! I don’t think I need to say much else…


REVIEW: Lian Li PC-X510 Case by James

Date: January 5, 2016
Lian Li PC-X510 Case Review

As I’ve already stated in the review text, the Lian Li PC-X510 (WX) is one of (if not) the best PC case I’ve ever seen, so there I’ve gone and said it now and I guess there’s no going back! The reason for this is mainly down to the engineering, the PC-X510 is simply beautifully made, add to that the fact that it looks great, it’s easy to install into and it’s super cool. If only it was a little cheaper perhaps…


REVIEW: Vibox Defcon 3 (Red) System by James

Vibox Defcon 3 (Red) System Review

The Vibox Defcon 3 (red) is a decent Gaming PC that features (on their own) a good set of components. But those components don’t compliment each other that well, and the end result is a system that’s not too sure what its trying to be…
