Logitech is a name you definitely think of when it comes to gaming keyboards and mice. The last gaming keyboard we took a look at from them was the G15 way back in 2006. Since then they have made some revisions to the G15, but today we have to chance to check out the new G19 gaming keyboard. This keyboard features a color GamePanel LCD, backlit keys, and 12 fully programmable G-keys. Those are just some of the features so let’s take a look.
Today we have the chance to look at the second of four Thermaltake CPU Coolers. The ISGC (Inspiration of Silent Gaming Cooling) line of CPU coolers offers a unique fan design which improves airflow and decreases noise. The ISGC-200 features 2 sawblade heatsink stacks which run three 6mm copper heatpipes. The ISGC Fan 12 is wedged in between the two stacks to pull cool air over one stack while blowing the cool air out over the other stack. Read on further to see how easy it is to install.
Chances are that you haven’t heard of Ikonik Technology. A number of professionals left one of the largest hardware companies in the world, and in February 2008 announced the formation of Ikonik. Starting out already having years of R&D, manufacturing and production management, and sales and marketing experience with a very successful company helped a lot. These guys aren’t a bunch of noobs blundering out into the IT market, they already know the industry, markets, products, and their competition. They presented their first products at Computex last June, including the Ra X10 case. They started winning awards there, and haven’t turned back. Today I will be looking at the Ikonik Ra X10 Liquid Cooled case, an aluminum full tower with a liquid cooling system installed. Besides having a very extensive liquid system, the case is probably the most ventilated PC chassis I have ever seen. And that’s not all, there are other innovations too. Read on to find out about the Ikonik Ra X10 Liquid!
ASUS is making a name for itself these days. Everyone knows about the ultrapopular EeePC netbooks, and ASUS has always been a top motherboard, video card, and sound card manufacturer. Let us not forget ASUS’s networking division and its excellent, inexpensive wireless routers. Our January 2007 review of the WL-500W was featured on the front page of Digg, and our March 2008 review of the WL-520GU had a lot of traffic, as well. ASUS submitted for review the RT-N15, a 300 Mbps 802.11n-capable unit featuring gigabit Ethernet, as well as green ports for power efficiency. ThinkComputers has the review.
If you are an iPhone user like me you are using your iPhone a lot, whether it is to make calls, surf the internet, or play games. All of this usage on the device really takes its tool on the battery life. I know after using the GPS and 3G on my iPhone my battery dies pretty quickly. I’m sure many people have the same problem so is why Mophie has come up with the Juice Pack series of rechargeable portable batteries for the iPhone. Today we are looking at their 3rd revision, the Juice Pack Air.
Today we have the opportunity to check out the Logitech G13 Advanced Gameboard. The G13 offers a customizable keyboard for any gamer. A natural contoured design is implemented into the 25-key setup. The LCD Display is yet another benefit of the G13. This display can show RSS Feeds, music, Xfire, CPU/RAM Usage, Time/Date and even a stopwatch. What makes this LCD even better is the customizable backlighting. You can change the backlighting of the keys and LCD to ANY color you want.
Our friends at Crucial are definitely onboard, they have released new Ballistix Tracer triple channel kits. If you didn’t know, Crucial Tracer memory modules have LEDs on the PCB to lend an interesting light display to your case interior. Today I will be looking at one of these, the Crucial Ballistix Tracer Blue DDR3-1600 6GB kit. Yes, the Tracer is now in blue, to match the lighting in a majority of rigs. Will the Tracer Blue live up to the high expectations we always have for Crucial products? Read on to see!
To satisfy the desire for enthusiast/gamer mATX motherboards, Asus has created a new series of boards, the ROG Gene series. These mATX form factor motherboards sport the features of Asus’ high-end ROG motherboards. The first of these to be seen was the Rampage II Gene, an mATX i7/X58 board. Our friends at Asus have now released an mATX Socket 775 ROG Gene motherboard, the Maximus II Gene. It looks to be the answer to what I’m looking for, an upper-end mATX board with Intel P45 chipset. Designed with the enthusiast/gamer in mind, it should be the platform for an awesome LAN party rig, which definitely fits my high-performance/high-portability desire. Will the Maximus II Gene do the job? Read on to see!
It seems like everyone is making iPod speaker systems, with so many out there it is hard to tell which ones are good and which ones are crap. Today we are looking at a speaker system from Samson, who is a new sponsor to ThinkComputers.
