BitFenix Shogun Case Review

I’ve really rather enjoyed my time with the BitFenix Shogun and it’s obvious that BitFenix have put a lot of time and effort into the design of this Case. Thankfully it’s all paid off too as this is a Case that can not only house a mass of hardware but also show it off to its full potential.

Raijintek Paean Case Review

The Raijintek Paean is a very special chassis, not only because of its unique design but because of who it is aimed at. And, as far as I can tell it’s aimed squarely at the pro-enthusiast water cooler/modder. As along as you know what you’re getting into with this Chassis then you’re likely going to love it. But the big question is: Is it for you?

NZXT AER RGB fans and Hue+ Review

The NZXT AER RGB fans are easy to recommend as there’s really very little to compare it against, especially when you factor in the features aboard the (required) NZXT HUE+. But then there’s the associated cost, both the fans and the HUE+ are quite expensive, but then again this level of customisation was never going to be cheap.

HyperX Cloud Revolver Headset Review

It’s been a long time since I’ve come across a Headset that can challenge the original HyperX Cloud as the best sub one hundred pound Headset, but at last we have a real challenger. The HyperX Cloud Revolver actually sounds better than the original Cloud and that in its self is impressive enough.

 

REVIEW: ID-Cooling FrostFlow 240L CPU Cooler

ID-Cooling FrostFlow 240L CPU Cooler Review

To be honest the ID-Cooling FrostFlow 240L is one of those products that simply ‘does what it says on the tin’ so to speak. Not only does it appear well made, it looks good, performs well and it’s also equipped with some funky LED lighting. At below £80 is simply wrong to critique what is simply a damn good product.

SilverStone Primera PM01 Case Review

I have to admit to really being rather impressed with the SilverStone Primera PM01. It’s got all of the good things a Gaming Case needs and none of the bad. First off the Case looks simply amazing with its red illumination and red LED fans, it also offers up great airflow to keep those toasty components cool and it’s easy to build a good looking tidy system into it. It’s even reasonably priced…

 

REVIEW: Raijintek Asterion Plus Case

Raijintek Asterion Plus Case Review

There’s no doubt that the Raijintek Asterion Plus is the best case Rajintek have made to date. It is in fact so close to perfection, it seems all the more annoying as the small flaws here and there simply let down an excellent overall package.

NZXT Kraken X62  CPU Cooler Review

Not only is the NZXT Kraken X62 a cool CPU Cooler due to its cooling performance it’s also a cool looking CPU Cooler too. In fact it’s the best looking AIO CPU Cooler we’ve ever seen…

 

REVIEW: Asus TUF Z270 Mark 1 Motherboard

Asus TUF Z270 Mark 1 Motherboard Review

There is no doubt in my mind that the Asus TUF Z270 Mark 1 is the best TUF Motherboard that Asus have produced to date. Yes in many ways it is very similar to the Z270E , but for me it is somewhat surprisingly, simply more desirable. Not only is it a super modern Motherboard packed with features it’s also not like any other board I’ve seen. That makes it more than just another Z270 board, that makes it special…

 

REVIEW: Asus ROG Strix Z270E Gaming Motherboard

Asus ROG Strix Z270E Gaming Motherboard Review

Asus has put together a great Motherboard in the form of the new Asus ROG Strix Z270E Gaming. The Z270E features a good layout a whole host of features, like the dual M.2 ports and probably the best RGB illumination yet seen on a Motherboard. But if you’re looking for a Gaming performance upgrade over a Z170 based system, Z270 is not necessarily the best place to start…
