But it’s simply more than just a good case, what makes it a great Case is that it is like no other, it’s unique. And it’s is this that makes it more than just a great case, this makes it desirable…

Ozone Strike Battle Keyboard Review Reviewers thoughts

The Ozone Strike Battle is a damn good tenkeyless mechanical illuminating Gaming keyboard, that not only works well, but it’s well made and looks good to boot! It’s shame then that the software lets it down a little, but to be fair at this price there’s really very little to complain about…

MSI Z170A Tomahawk Motherboard Review Reviewers thoughts

The MSI Z170A Tomahawk has caught me a little by surprise, as not only is a good looking motherboard but it’s also got a decent array of features and all of this at budget price. It’s also a competent Overclocker too! What more do you want…

Shuttle XPC Cube SZ170R8 Barebones System Review Reviewers thoughts

We’ve not seen many systems like this here at pcG, but having seen the Shuttle XPC Cube SZ170R8 we would definitely like to see more. The SZ170R8 has proven to me that you can have a SFF PC and have a powerful Gaming system within. Of course this also boils down to what components you use, but there’s no doubt that the Shuttle XPC Cube SZ170R8 is a good foundation on which to start…

REVIEW: CM Storm Sentinel III Mouse by James

CM Storm Sentinel III Mouse Review Reviewers thoughts

The updated CM Storm Sentinel III is a good Gaming mouse, but it’s not as good as the old one IMHO! This is not because the Sentinel III is worse per se, it’s simply the fact that the competition has moved forward and maybe, Cooler Master just haven’t moved forward enough!?

CM Storm Quick Fire XTi Keyboard Review Reviewers thoughts

When we talk about the products here at pcG that we like a word that often crops up is, desirable! Now this word is a bit like the X-Factor as you either have it or you don’t. Well there’s no doubt about it the CM Storm Quick Fire XTi has it. In fact, it is one of the most desirable products I’ve seen in some time…

REVIEW: Gigabyte Z170X-GAMING 5 Motherboard by James

Gigabyte Z170X-GAMING 5 Motherboard Review Reviewers thoughts

The Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 5 is a good Z170 based board with great aesthetics, impressive features and impressive audio. It’s a shame then that it’s let down by some poor design choices, such as the lack lustre UEFI and software as well as some of the worst vDroop I’ve seen on a motherboard, making overclocking more difficult than it should be.

REVIEW: Cryorig H7 CPU Cooler by James

Cryorig H7 CPU Cooler Review Reviewers thoughts

OK, so on paper the Cryorig H7 is not the best performing CPU Cooler, but maybe that’s missing the point. What it is; is one of the best looking CPU Coolers I’ve seen that’s got a innovative mounting system and features limitless RAM clearance. It’s also more than capable of cooling an overclocked CPU and the price isn’t too bad either…

MSI Z170A Gaming Pro Carbon Motherboard Review Reviewers thoughts

As is the norm for MSI the MSI Z170A Gaming Pro Carbon is another great Gaming motherboard, that offers great performance at a regular price. But I’m unsure if the carbon aesthetics and the RGB illumination are enough to ensure that this board is at the top of your shopping list…

NZXT HUE+ Review Reviewers thoughts

The NZXT HUE+ can be summed up with simply one word, and that word is wow! If you like a bit of LED lighting (and who doesn’t!) in your case then the HUE+ is exactly what you’re looking for; it’s easy to install, easy to setup and looks fantastic!
