Enermax has just announced a new flagship case in their Fulmo ST mid tower. Enermax has already released their original Fulmo and Fulmo GT and now it is time for the ST series. The front of the case features a black iron mesh design, which looks pretty good. The side panel of the case has a full acrylic windows so you are going to be able to see all of your hardware installed inside. At the top of the case you will find four USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports and a fan speed controller.
It is not often we see announcements regarding external DVD writers. Optical media is much less popular as it was even a few years ago. Well ASUS has a new External DVD writer in their SDRW-08U5S-U. This portable optical drive is the thinnest form factor in its class at 13mm. There is a hidden stand that allows you to have the drive in either horizontal or vertical placement. The drive will be available in Mellow Metallic, Dusty Rose, and Bright Berry color options.
When it comes to mid range cases there are quite a few to choose from. The $60-80 dollar segment is filled with some great cases as well as some that I wouldn’t recommend to anyone. Today we are taking a look at Sentey’s Halcon GS-6050 II mid tower case. The big thing that stood out to me about this case is that it comes stock with 7 cooling fans! That is a lot of fans for any case, but especially for a mid tower. The Halcon also has support for 2.5-inch hard drives, long video cards and has USB 3.0 support. Will this case be one of the cases in the mid range that we recommend or that we tell you to stay away from? Read on as we find out!

Some fierce rivalries in the tech industry have played out over the last decade or so, and it has been fascinating to see how this plays out in the field of tech PR. Many of these struggles have led to much acrimony and lawsuits. In many ways though, consumers actually benefit from these rivalries as each main player tries to outdo each other in product and service offerings. Here are a couple of some of the most famous rivalries that have garnered much attention in tech PR.
One of the best reasons to own any Android product is that there are thousands of games you can download to play. Games have been a part of our culture since we first discovered fire and will remain a part of who we are for the rest of humanity’s existence. Games for mobile devices have come a long way in the past few years and this has given the Android games that would be just as at home on a console. While there are thousands of games available for the Android, this article lists ten games that are better than most of the others.
Tribute to the 101st Screaming Eagles brigades auction custom MOD/Build to benefit disabled vets through PCs4VETS charity.

You cannot leave ASUS out of the bunch when it comes to the Radeon HD 7790 graphics card. Like most manufacturers of the “Bonaire” based card they have two versions as well. They have a reference design and their OC Edition which does feature ASUS’s own DirectCU II cooling as well. The HD7790-DC2OC-1GD5 runs overclocked at a 1075MHz core, 6400MHz memory and does come with ASUS’s GPU tweak utility.
If there is one thing I think I would never try and do it would be opening up or disassembling a tablet. If I would open one up I most likely would never get it back together correctly. Sony on the other hand though it would be a good idea to tear open their brand new Xperia Z tablet. Any tablet would be hard to open up but the Xperia Z is the world’s thinnest 10.1-inch tablet so it is really quite astonishing that Sony decided to open it up and break it down. Check out the YouTube video after the jump.
Today is the release day for AMD’s latest graphics card the Radeon HD 7790. MSI has released their own version of the card. MSI has two versions of the card (R7790-1GD5/OC & R7790-1GD5). Let’s concentrate on the R7790-1GD5/OC because the other one is just the reference design. The R7790-1GD5/OC card is slightly overclocked at 1050MHZ core and has 1GB of GDDR5 running at 6000MHz effective.
