REVIEW: Vibox Defcon 3 (Red) System by James

Vibox Defcon 3 (Red) System Review Reviewers thoughts

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…

REVIEW: be quiet! Silent Base 600 Case by James

be quiet! Silent Base 600 Case Review Reviewers thoughts

There’s no doubt that the be quiet! Silent Base 600 is a good case, it’s good looking, well made and does a good job of keeping your components cool. But with only one intake fan (come on be quiet!, that’s a bit stingy!) and a price of approximately £90, it still feels a little too expensive for my liking.

REVIEW: be quiet! Dark Rock TF CPU Cooler by James

be quiet! Dark Rock TF CPU Cooler Review Reviewers thoughts

The be quiet! Dark Rock TF is an unusual cooler in that it’s unconventional in its design and unusual in the way it is fitted. It unfortunately also doesn’t seem to live up to its 220W TDP. But to dwell on these issues is to maybe miss the point of this low profile cooler, as the Dark Rock TF is likely to fit where others cannot…

REVIEW: BitFenix Nova Case by James

BitFenix Nova Case Review Reviewers thoughts

To bemoan the BitFenix Nova‘s low quality and or its lack of cooling would be to miss the point of this case entirely! This is a usable case, with a side window that can house a modern Gaming rig with ease, and it costs just £27! Although you might want to just add an additional fan or two…

REVIEW: Ozone Blast 4HX Headset by James

Ozone Blast 4HX Headset Review Reviewers thoughts

There’s one major issue with the Ozone Blast 4HX headset and that’s simply the price! At £60 so many other headsets offer better quality, better sound and better comfort. If this headset was half the price then it would undeniably be worth it, but for now it’s simply not…

Asus Maximus VIII Ranger Motherboard Review Reviewers thoughts

There’s a lot to like about the new Asus Maximus VIII Ranger, this Z170 based board seems to have it all; great classy looks, a well laid out PCB, SLI & Crossfire support, terrific Audio and an M.2 Drive. If you’re looking for a real Gamers board, then well, you get the idea…

REVIEW: Logitech G19s Keyboard by James

Logitech G19s Keyboard Review Reviewers thoughts

When I first started this review I wondered whether an older, feature rich membrane keyboard such as the Logitech G19s could compete against the latest mechanical Gaming keyboards that we have seen here at pcG!? Well after a week or so with the Logitech G19s, I would say no, read on to find out why…

REVIEW: G.Skill Ripjaws SV710 Headset by James

G.Skill Ripjaws SV710 Headset Review Reviewers thoughts

The G.Skill Ripjaws SV710 needs only a couple more tweaks to make it a real player in the sub £50 headset category. The overall design and quality is good, the audio produced is also pretty good (although a little neutral), but the headset’s headband is a little odd as the headset itself seems to sit more on your ears than on your head!

REVIEW: Vibox Element X – Red System by James

Vibox Element X – Red System Review Reviewers thoughts

To coin a lyric from a song, the ViBox Element X (Red) is ‘all about that case‘, well; something like that anyway! What we have here is a great little AMD based Gaming system that’s more than capable of running all of today’s Games in full HD. But the component that steals the show is that case, but that might just be the trouble, for some…
