Kingston HyperX FURY Pro Gaming Mouse Pad @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 8:51P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I’m not sure if everyone else has been watching, but Kingston has been slowly expanding their product lines a little. They are obviously known for their memory and later their SSDs and flash drives. But they have also been dabbling in headsets with their HyperX brand. They started out by partnering with other manufactures but recently they have introduced their own headsets and they have been very popular from what I have seen. Well around that time they also quietly introduced a line of mouse pads. I guess they figure that a HyperX fan might be interested in keeping the HyperX trend going with a mouse pad. So today I’m going to take a quick look at the HyperX FURY Pro Gaming Mouse Pad and see what they have going on.

COUGAR GX-1050 V3 1050W Power Supply Unit Review
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 8:51P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Time and again we've pointed out the reasons behind why people always need to have a good CPU cooler especially during the hot summer months. However a CPU cooler is not the only hardware component of a system that needs to have a certain level of quality in order to keep that system running without issue even during the hottest possible days and leaving out the next obvious hardware component which is no other than the GPU cooler (which in most cases is ok as long as you don't push your card hard) there's just one other that needs special attention, the power supply unit. This of course doesn't necessarily mean that if you use a mainstream model it will burn out during the summer but generally speaking everything from the enclosure, cooling fan and interior components play a huge role in how long the device will keep going and what kind of performance you can expect from it. One of the somewhat "new" players in the market is COUGAR and since so far their products in general have performed on par with those of their much older rivals we decided to take a look at the latest GX-1050 V3 (G1050) 1050W power supply unit.

Turtle Beach Impact 700 Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 8:50P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently, I’ve been getting engrossed in the world of Turtle Beach peripherals. The company announced they would be breaking away from being an audio only company, set to explore the world of keyboards and mice and we were very impressed with the products we saw at CES 2015. More recently, we’ve been lucky enough to play around with their gorgeous GRIP series mice, such as the GRIP 500 which we recently review and if that’s just a taste of things to come, we should be in for a real treat with their keyboard products.

Core i7-5960X vs i7-5820K Gaming-Performance
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 8:49P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel released their new Haswell-E CPUs, we decided to rework our CPU gaming performance articles. Meanwhile we're testing different resolutions and there are FullHD, 1440p as well as UHD on our list. This way you get a more detailed understanding of the differences. Today we compare the Core i7-5960X to the Core i7-5820K at stock clocks as well as overclocked and we're curious see how big the differences are.

MSI Cubi Review
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 8:48P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI is offering its Cubi Mini PC in four different specifications with varying levels of CPU grunt, depending on the price you pay. Cubi is a barebones design however the sample sent to KitGuru was fully built and ready to roll. If you buy a Cubi you will have to install RAM, storage and an Operating System (Windows 7 or 8.1) yourself, although this should only take you a few minutes.

TP-LINK Archer C9 Wireless Dual Band Router Review
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 8:48P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Based on a second generation Broadcom chipset, the Archer C9 AC1900 router shares many characteristics with the C8 which we have reviewed previously, including elements of design. The router takes quite little space on the table and is ventilated properly thanks to the grill located in the back. We again have two USB ports available for data transfer or for connecting printers; in our tests, the USB 3.0 transfer speeds seem to be quite improved, but it won’t be able to match low-end NAS capabilities yet.

Gigabyte GA-Z97N GAMING-5 Motherboard Review
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 8:48P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are big fans of mITX motherboards, though only in recent years. They have come a long way from their beige roots and now will tickle the geekiness of many gamers around the world. For us it’s the fact that we don’t need another big chassis in the office or in our homes, we generally have a few mITX rigs around, as daily drivers and as test machines."

Inexpensive yet fully featured, the new Carbide 100R costs less than $75 but it still has to compete in a very full segment.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
