Noctua NH-D15 CPU Cooler Review

Yes, we realise that we published our original review of the Noctua NH-D15 in late November last year, but since then we here at pcG have revised our Test Rigs somewhat to include the Z97 chipset and Haswell refresh CPU.

Raijintek Themis Evo CPU Cooler Review

I was very interested to see how the Raijintek Themis Evo performed, being the bigger brother to our standard build Raijintek Themis, and had high expectations having seen the size of the heatsink when it came out of the box. These expectations were met…

BitFenix Phenom MITX Case Review

I have enjoyed my time with the BitFenix Phenom MITX, it’s a smart little cube styled Small Form Factor case, that appears small on the outside, yet is big on the inside and the cooling performance is impressive, if paired with the optional vented side panel…

Cougar 600M Gaming Mouse Review

Undoubtedly Cougar made a big impact with the phenomenal 700K and 700M last year, certainly enough to show the world they are serious about making high quality Gaming peripherals and make the bigger brands sit up and take notice. Yet can they keep the ball rolling with the 600M?

Element Gaming Neon 250 Headset Review

Let’s just get one thing straight, the Element Gaming Neon 250 is the best sub £50 headset that I’ve ever tested, in fact it is probably the best product I’ve ever tested, because at £25 it’s an absolute steal!

Noctua NH-D9L CPU Cooler Review

I always look forward to seeing a new Noctua product here at pcG. Not only do they offer phenomenal build quality and high performance, but they also use the quite frankly brilliant SecurFirm 2 mounting system. But can we expect to see the same from their latest, the Noctua NH-D9L?

BitFenix Prodigy M Case Review

You could say that I have a love hate relationship with the BitFenix Prodigy M, the installation may have been frustrating but the end result almost makes up for all of the cursing and the swearing!

Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Keyboard Review

So what do you get beyond the keyboard itself? A whole lot actually, first of you get an amazing touch screen with numerous apps! If that isn’t enough you get over 20 macro keys, adjustable palm rests, full RGB coloured backlighting, two high speed USB ports and a FULLY customisable keyboard!

XFX Radeon R9 290X  DD Black Edition Review

I’ve been looking forward to looking at the XFX Radeon R9 290X DD Black Edition ever since it was first announced well over a year ago. Now it’s a key component within the pcG Test Rig, I gained the opportunity to have a much closer look and put it through its paces.
