Xilence Performance X Series 850W Power Supply Review

This is an excellent unit. Let me first just say that. I had high hopes when I felt the weight of it, and have absolutely no doubt that this PSU would hold up well to a beefier SLI/Crossfire setup.

 

REVIEW: ID-Cooling Auraflow 240 CPU Cooler

ID-Cooling Auraflow 240 CPU Cooler Review

ID-Cooling have produced another good CPU Cooler in the ID-Cooling Auraflow 240. It’s got great RGB support, it’s well made and at £70 it’s a bargain too. But, if you’re going to be cooling a hot CPU a larger AIO with a bigger radiator is the answer…

noblechairs Icon Gaming Chair Review

There’s no denying that the noblechairs Icon is the best Gaming Chair we’ve seen here at pcG. But to be fair it’s also the most expensive we’ve seen. The question therefore is: Is it worth it?

be quiet! Silent Loop 360mm CPU Cooler Review

There’s a lot to like when looking at the be quiet! Silent Loop 360mm as it’s a good looking, well made AIO CPU Cooler. Ok, so the installation is a bit too fiddly for its own good but if you need the cooling potential offered by a 360mm radiator then I’m sure you’ll get over it…

HyperX Pulsefire FPS Mouse Review

The HyperX Pulsefire FPS is a good mouse, but unfortunately that’s all it is. If that’s what you’re looking for then this might be the mouse for you. But at £50 many other manufacturers offer more than this…

 

REVIEW: HyperX Cloud Revolver S Headset

HyperX Cloud Revolver S Headset Review

The big question that’s needs answering is: Is the new HyperX Cloud Revolver S better than the HyperX Cloud Revolver? Unfortunately you’re not going to like my answer as the answer is: Yes and No. It offers the same audio performance as the Revolver and adds DSP and Virtual surround sound into the mix; but that doesn’t make it better, it just makes it sound different.

 

REVIEW: be quiet! Pure Base 600 Case

be quiet! Pure Base 600 Case Review

The be quiet! Pure Base 600 is a good Case and a good looking Case too, yet it seems to me a little stuck in the past. While there’s not much wrong with it overall, well apart form those grommet positions, its lack of a PSU shroud, untidy cabling and no illumination makes it seem somewhat expensive at £90.

 

REVIEW: Ballistix Elite 3466MHz 16GB Kit

Ballistix Elite 3466MHz 16GB Kit Review

The Ballistix Elite 3466MHz 16GB Kit is easy to recommend to anyone looking for a high speed 16GB (x2 8GB) kit. The memory modules look good, will fit in within any rig build and are built like a tank. Add to this the fastest performance we have ever seen and we have a real force to be reckoned with…

 

REVIEW: Fnatic Gear Duel TMA-2 Headset

Fnatic Gear Duel TMA-2 Headset Review

The Fnatic Gear Duel TMA-2 is a good Headset and it will undoubtedly serve the wearer well in Game. It also offers features, such as the different configurations, that other Headsets simply do not. But at £170 you really need to want those specific features as other Headsets out there are both cheaper and sound better…

 

REVIEW: Lian Li PE-550 550W SFX Power Supply

Lian Li PE-550 550W SFX Power Supply Review

If you’re looking for a small SFX PSU then the Lian Li PE-550 550W Power Supply is a good option. It offers up a decent feature set for the asking price, delivers good performance and the PSU remained quiet at all times. Only the slightly below voltages during our torture test let it down, although they were all still within Intel’s guidelines.
