AeroCool GT-A Chassis Review
     Thu, Apr 16 2015 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
First appearances matter, and the styling of the Aerocool GT-A will easily distract you from the fact that this is a budget ATX case. The appearance of this white version with a blue LED fan at the front is eye-catching with its flared wheel arch thing at the front and the louvred top cover that sits above two empty 120mm fan housings. In front of that top cover there is a discreet sliding cover that conceals a SATA dock and when you look at the front panel you’ll find a pair of rotary fan controllers.

Phanteks PH-TC14S Slim Tower Heatsink Review
     Thu, Apr 16 2015 | 9:00A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The whole premise behind the slim-tower Phanteks PH-TC14S heatsink is not overhanging memory slots - if you've built an Intel X99 based computer recently, you're undoubtedly aware that the memory slots straddle either side of the LGA2011-3 CPU socket with a little less than 20mm to spare."

Linkon Power Stick 3000mAh External Battery Review
     Wed, Apr 15 2015 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today for review I have the Linkon Power Stick which is a small and very portable 3000mAh external battery that can charge most any device over USB and yes that even includes tablet from my testing. The Power Stick is like any other portable battery out there but what I found most interesting about this one was the charging cable. The Power Stick comes with a standard microUSB to USB cable for charging it and your devices but it also includes Apple and Lightning adapters which have a microUSB female connection on them so they just connect right to the included cable, no special adapters or tips required.

Lian-Li DK-01 Aluminium Desk Chassis Review
     Wed, Apr 15 2015 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not all chassis’ are created equal, that much we know already, but there are some that are so far ahead of the rest, its almost rude to call them a chassis at all. Lian-Li is no stranger to the extreme end of the PC market, having already created some incredible products that cost large sums of money, capable of housing everything from rendering workstations, to ultra-high-end gaming systems. Today, however, they’ve gone even further, creating a chassis that breaks from the usual bonds of a box that houses components, by creating a chassis that is also a fully fledged desk!
