Corsair SF600 80 Plus Gold Fully Modular SFX Power Supply Review
     Sat, Apr 30 2016 | 9:03A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The world of Small Form Factor (SFX) power supplies has been a fierce battleground over the last few years. Gaming systems have been getting smaller, the HTPC and Steambox markets are growing in popularity and the demand for a tiny PSU that can keep the system small, but still deliver the high-performance grunt required by modern gaming GPU/CPU combos is at an all time high. Enter the new Corsair SF600, the latest contender on the market and judging by the specifications, it may be the best one we’ve seen to date.

MSI Z170A GAMING M5 (LGA1151) Motherboard Review
     Sat, Apr 30 2016 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since the release of Intel’s Z170 chipset, MSI has unveiled a fantastic, feature-rich motherboard range which caters to contrasting user demands. For example, the Z170A GAMING PRO CARBON is an excellent choice for consumers wanting a stylish black colour scheme and great reliability at an affordable price point. In contrast to this, the MSI Z170A XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM Edition‘s gorgeous aesthetic design makes it one of the most innovative LGA1151 motherboards on the market. Of course, the iconic dragon styling on many MSI products have become a popular choice among the core gaming demographic. This red and black theme compliments mainstream hardware and retails at very competitive prices across various performance tiers.

Corsair Gaming M65 Pro RGB Optical Mouse Review
     Sat, Apr 30 2016 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink

Case Mod Friday: The Command Center
     Fri, Apr 29 2016 | 3:39P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This week for Case Mod Friday we have a full setup rather than just a case mod. Typically we don't feature setups, but this one was too awesome to not share. It is "The Command Center" by Pilot_H and it has to be one of the most insane setups we've seen! He has an X99 system decked out with a Core i7-5960X, four GTX 980 Ti's, 32GB of DDR4, and 2 GB of SSD storage. This is all inside an In Win S-Frame case and everything is water cooled! On top of that he has a 4-display setup which is made up of three Acer Predator X43's and a single ASUS PG27Q. He has a second PC that is inside an aquarium and has some pretty high-end audio equipment! This is anyone's dream setup!"

ASUS MG24UQ and MG28UQ IPS 4K FreeSync Monitor Review
     Fri, Apr 29 2016 | 3:38P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS has rapidly become a dominant force in the gaming monitor sector due to the popularity of its ROG range. According to Digitimes, the company has seen a staggering growth rate of 30 percent throughout Europe in 2015. Models such as the PG278Q, commonly referred to the ROG Swift beautifully catered towards users requiring a high refresh monitor and G-Sync functionality. This combination proved to be extraordinarily successful and inspired future products such as the PG279Q. The advent of responsive IPS panels featuring enhanced viewing angles and colour reproduction compared to their TN counterparts, forged a new audience for the ROG series.

Intel NUC Kit NUC5PGYH Braswell Mini PC
     Fri, Apr 29 2016 | 1:11P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Like the rest of Intel Atom systems, home theater PCs (HTPC) based on the CPU have come a long way over the last few years. The Intel NUC5PGYH offers hardware accelerated video decoding up to 4K (HDMI 1.4b output) via the quad-core Intel Braswell Pentium N3700. Now add in 7.1 multi-channel audio support, Windows 10 preinstalled, RC6 CIR (consumer infrared), 2GB DDR3L RAM, 32GB eMMC, and support for 2.5” storage expansion. This particular low power system has the makings of a serious media consumption device. And when considering that you can bring one home for $250/£220 ($280 SRP), even the price sounds too good to be true.

Corsair Gaming K70 Rapidfire RGB Gaming Keyboard Review
     Fri, Apr 29 2016 | 10:56A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ready to take your gaming seriously? We’ve got the (mostly) new Corsair Gaming K70 Rapidfire RGB in the eTeknix office today, and while you may be familiar with the K70 part, the keyboard now features the all-new and very much improved Cherry MX Speed switches! But what are MX Speed switches? They use the same underlying format as the extremely popular and lightning fast MX Red switches, but with a 40% reduction in actuation distance, meaning they’re even faster than ever before, making them the shortest response mechanical switches on the market today.
