Zotac is emerging as a major player in the mini PC market and you’ll find a boatload of ZBOX units if you visit the company’s website. The one we have with us today is the ZBOX ID80 Plus, one of the newer units built around Intel’s recently released Atom “Cedar Trail” refresh. It comes equipped with an Intel Atom D2700 processor, 2GB of DDR3-1066 RAM, 320GB hard drive, and an NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M GPU.

Hamburg, February 28, 2012 – ROCCAT Studios today announced the upcoming availability of the Savu Mid-Size Hybrid Gaming Mouse – a competition device that “fusion welds” an ideal blend of performance and customizable features into a robust, perfectly-balanced, medium-size design.
The Savu offers a combination of unprecedented, true 4000 dpi optical sensor power, world famous Easy-Shift[+] technology allowing for advanced button configuration, and a lighting system delivering 16.8 million colors. What’s more, it’s the world’s first mouse to feature a stats and trophy system – called the ROCCAT Achievements Display, or R.A.D. — something previously known in similar form only in online gaming. Designed specifically for fans of mid-size gaming mice, the Savu also pampers the hands with an ergonomic right-hand thumb rest and soft-touch surface.
Portable electronics, we all have them and they all have one thing in common they are subject to battery life. When the battery dies on these devices we no longer can play games, do work, or communicate with our friends. No one wants to be sitting around doing nothing, that is what these portable electronics are for. MiPow has a really cool protective case for the iPad 2 that also has a built in battery. It is called the Juice Cover and we are taking a look at it today.
Today we are going to be unboxing one of largest Zalman CPU coolers we have seen and definitely the biggest CPU cooler of 2012! The CNPS12X is not only large it packs three 120mm fans, a direct-touch heatpipe design with 6 copper heatpipes and 2 large aluminum heatsink stacks. This CPU cooler is compatible with all current CPU’s including Intel’s new 2011 socket. All 3 fans run at a maximum of 1200RPM, so even though you have the 3 fans they will be pretty quiet. Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video.
On February 15th AMD released their new HD7750 and HD7770 graphics cards targeting the mainstream enthusiast audience. On launch day we reviewed HD7770 and HD7750 cards from partners such as VTX3D, HIS and Sapphire. Our XFX sample was originally misplaced in the mail so we held fire until today to review two of their new HD7770 Black Edition cards in Crossfire along with their latest HD7750 Double Dissipation Edition.
“While they’ve been part of the PC gaming scene for as long as the genre of play has existed, it’s only in recent years with the growth of competitive gaming that the mechanical keyboards have really begun to get a look in. Yes they’re expensive, yes they tend to be relatively feature free, but they’re fast and they feel great when using them.
With that in mind, it’s time to take a look at another: the Qpad Mk-85. Having looked at the Mk-80 previously with its Cherry Blue switches, I was very much looking forward to what the same sort of design could do when combined with the much more gamer orientated red variant.”
