PRIME Titanium PSUs
     Sat, Jan 21 2017 | 4:02P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are going to kick-off the New Year on a high-note by taking another look at Seasonic’s PRIME Titanium series power supplies. When we first tested the new PRIME 750W Titanium PSU last summer, we concluded it was the best overall PC power supply we had reviewed to date. So was that just a fluke? Did we get a hand-picked power supply? Or did our review sample truly represent the outstanding performance that a regular user would experience after buying one of the Seasonic PRIME Titanium series power supplies through normal retail channels? Today, we are going to test two more PRIME Titanium PSUs and compare our findings with the original PRIME 750W Titanium power supply test results. This will provide a unique opportunity to compare three different power supplies from the same series to see how consistent their performance really is, which can be a good indicator of quality.

XFX Hard Swap LED Fans @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jan 21 2017 | 4:00P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So last week I took a look at XFX’s RX 480 and it, like the XFX RX 470, has what they call Hard Swap fans. The stock fans are just basic 90mm fans like you would find on most aftermarket cards, but without any tools they can be swapped with other fans. Along with the card, XFX also sent all three of their LED fan kits for me to check out. So today isn’t going to be a long day or anything, but I’m going to check out the new fans, see how easy they are to swap out, and take a look at all three LED colors on the XFX RX 480.

Arozzi Arena Gaming Desk @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jan 21 2017 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It’s funny how we spend sometimes thousands of dollars on our PCs and peripherals but at the end of the day don’t give much thought to our actual desk setups. I bet a lot of you are using the same desk that you used years ago, I know I did. But a few years ago I started thinking about options for new desks and frankly there really aren’t that many out there. Sure you can pick up the cheap desks at your local discount store, but is there anything out there that’s better. Are there any options focused on gamers? Well if you search around you will find a few options that are “gamer” focused, but none were very good. So when I saw the Arozzi Arena Gaming Desk online it caught my eye. They didn’t just add colors and call it a gaming product, it actually has a cloth mouse surface over the entire top of the desk. With all of the people buying large desk pads and putting them under their keyboard and mouse, the Arena seemed like an extension of that so I reached out to Arozzi to take a closer look.

Caselabs Bullet BH7 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jan 21 2017 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past four years, I have been running my main rig in the Magnum TH10 monster of a case. In that time I have abused the case almost every day and it has held up to that abuse without a ding, dent, or chip in the finish. So when I saw that Caselabs had introduced a new case and it was available in a bright orange I couldn’t get in touch with Caselabs fast enough. The new Bullet line of cases are much smaller and incorporate a lot of new features from what Caselabs have learned in the last few years including a dual chamber design. Given that I’ve never actually built an orange themed build and I’ve always wanted to, I set out to build a monster PC in the Bullet BH7. You can expect a project build in the future, but for now, I did want to sit down and dive into the Caselabs Bullet BH7 and tell everyone what it's all about and if they should pick one up for their next build.

GIGABYTE GTX 1050 Ti OC Review
     Fri, Jan 20 2017 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we focus our attention on the GIGABYTE camp and what they have to offer in the GTX 1050 Ti OC. As the name suggests, this graphics card arrives with a factory overclock – featuring a small boost to the GPU clock speed. GTX 1050 Ti OC also benefits from a small footprint allowing it to squeeze into small builds and its dependence on PCI-slot power means this could be a great upgrade for many with an aging PC.

be quiet! Pure Base 600 Chassis review
     Fri, Jan 20 2017 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Germans have gone budget. be quiet! has launched its new Pure Base 600 case as an entry-level model that sits below the Silent Base and Dark Base cases we saw in 2016 and 2017. As you will see in our video, our initial impressions were a bit … glum. There are no windows and certainly no tempered glass, so basically you get a black box that looks a bit plasticky. Pull off the two side panels and the interior is an open design without a power supply cover where it appears that everything is on show and there are few features of interest. You can see the optical drive bay housing and the three separate hard drive bays but perhaps the most exciting thing is the inclusion of two Pure Wings 2 fans, 140mm at front and 120mm at the rear. At this stage in the game KitGuru was ready to throw in the towel and award the Pure Base 600 a ‘Dull but Nice’ award and move on to the next review.
