“The first item we will be taking a long hard look at today will be the Strike X GT Black gaming case. The GT stand for gaming tower as you can imagine but how does it stand up to the other gaming towers on the market? Well, we have reviewed several other companies’ towers and we will find out. Looking at Strike X GT, you can see just where the “X” is within the theme and that is everywhere. We are going to break out the box and take a quick of this new case from Aerocool.”
Chances are if you’re a gamer, you own a Razer product or have at least thought about buying one. Mainly known for their mice, Razer products have an attractive look, and often outperform the competition. In this review we’ll be checking out a headset. More specifically, the stereo version of the Razer Chimaera. It has the good looks that every Razer product shares, and a fancy spec sheet. But how does it perform, and can it stand toe to toe with the similar Logitech Wireless Headset F540? Dive into the complete review to find out.

The NZXT Switch 810 Full Tower case was the talk of CES. Everyone we knew was talking about it and NZXT gave us an awesome overview of the case in their suite. Fast forward a few months and we have our own Switch 810 in the office and today we are going to be unboxing it! This case comes equipped with four 140mm fans, room for 7 hard drives, support for XL-ATX motherboards and a whole slew of other features. Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video!
“The Phanteks PH-TC14CS is the company’s second offering into the marketplace. While the Phanteks PH-TC14CS is distinctly different in form from the PH-TC14PE that preceded it, the same general features and philosophies remain intact. The PH-TC14CS is a lower form factor, top down cooler which makes it a more versatile unit as far as fit in smaller builds, standing at only 140.5mm in dual fan configuration and 112mm with a single fan installation. The PH-TC14CS is supplied with dual 140mm 1300rpm fans, and includes a PWM Y-Adapter for variable speeds from 700-1200rpm with noise topping out at a very low 19.6dbA.The PWM adapter is a nice addition to the package, making fan control easily accessible from just about any motherboard and control software. The tower of the PH-TC14CS brings all of Phanteks’ innovations to the forefront once again. The base and five 8mm heatpipes are copper with nickel plating, with the heatpipes angling 180 degrees to place the tower parallel to the motherboard.”

“Last week we reviewed the overclocked XFX HD7870 Black Edition graphics card, and today we look at the Sapphire HD7870 Overclock Edition. This card features a custom cooler, with twin fans and overclocked out of the box settings to appeal to the enthusiast audience.”
“ASUS Xonar Essence One is the name of a brand new DAC & Headphone amplifier combination from ASUS. The unit can decode 192 kHz source material and features a well performing headphone amplifier stage that allows for op-amp swapping.”
“Every gamer has felt it at some point in their playing career. After a double digit hour session of console or PC gaming: dry eyes, they ache, you can’t focus properly, they might even be watering. It sucks but its a price to pay for just one more game.
Apparently though, that’s not completely necessary. Gunnar Optiks have been making gaming grade computer glasses for a long time now and they’ve recently teamed up with Steelseries to produce some new branded pairs of the specs. Utilising a yellow tint, minor magnification and other lens features to make it easier on your eyes, the idea is to allow you to game and work for longer with less strain on those important eye balls.
Let’s see if they live up to the hype.”
“The Strike X line is aimed at the hard-core gamer. And looking at the Strike X 800W power supply is evidence of that. This new “X” themed power supply offers many of the protections that other manufacturers offer but in a casing that is on another level. A blend of red and black makes the Strike X perfect for those that are into case modding or simply want their PC to stand out visually.”
