be quiet! is a company we primarily know for their cooling products and power supplies. Earlier this year they made they jump into cases with their flagship Silent Base 800, which we reviewed. Now they have released the Silent Base 600, which is a smaller case, but follows the same design principles as the 800. The case has a sleek design, room inside for six hard drives, long graphics cards, two included fans with a fan controller, and of course is made for silence. Will this be a case we can recommend for your next build? Read on as we find out!
The original Tt eSPORTS Cronos gaming headset was released back in 2013, we were really impressed with it and since then Tt eSPORTS has released a few different versions of the headset. The latest version is the Cronos AD which seems like it is designed to be a more streamlined and lightweight headset specifically made for eSports athletes. It features a design much like the original Cronos but has a new open air and auto-adjusting headband that is made to fit your head perfectly. You have 40mm neodymium magnetic drivers as well as a retractable and bendable microphone. This headset is also made to work with multiple devices so you can use it with your PC, mobile device, tablet, etc. Let’s see what the Tt eSPORTS Cronos AD Gaming Headset is all about!
It has been quite a while since we’ve seen a major case release from Corsair. They have been focusing heavily on their all-in-one liquid CPU coolers, gaming products and power supplies, but they haven’t forgot about cases. Today we will be taking a look at a brand new case from Corsair that has elegant minimalist design on the outside, but inside it is anything but that. This is the first case from Corsair that I know of that will feature an inverted-ATX layout. On top of that inside you have plenty of room for storage, watercooling and even a power supply shroud that keeps everything inside looking nice. Corsair will be releasing two versions of this case, a 600C which features a clear side panel to show off your gear inside and a 600Q (which we are reviewing) that has sound-dampening properties and normal side panels. Let’s see what Corsair’s new case is all about!
We can never have too much power, with many people using their mobile device as their main computing device and people using multiple devices (smartphone & tablet) products like portable chargers have become extremely popular. Almost everyone I know has at least one charger their their mobile device, and half of them I wouldn’t even “tech” people. Cheero has been making mobile power banks and similar devices since 2011. Their latest is the Power Plus 3 which is a 13400 mAh portable charger that fits in your pocket! It makes use of high grade Japanese-made batteries and has dual USB power outputs. Let’s see if the Power Plus performs as good as it looks.
Audiofly has really impressed us with their in-ear headphones. We first took a look at their high-end AF78’s then moved down to the AF56’s and now we are taking a look at the AF45’s. These sit right above Audiofly’s entry-level AF33’s, so they are two steps down from the top of the line AF78’s. Audiofly tells us that the AF45’s deliver clear, honest tones. They have well defined mids that groove with a punchy bass and blend with stunning highs that chime like a church bell. At only $35 these fit into the budget of most people, let’s see if they are for you.
Zalman has been around for quite a long time and we know them best for their legendary CPU coolers and cases. Over the past few years Zalman has not really put out that many products. This sort of took them off the radar for many people. Well today we have a product that will definitely put them back on the map for you and it is not a CPU cooler or a case, it is actually a keyboard. The keyboard is the ZM-K700M and it is a full mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX mechanical switches, great build quality and some of the most impressive backlighting we’ve seen on a keyboard before. Let’s take a look at the ZM-K700M and see if Zalman has a winner on their hands.
When it comes to home security cameras there are so many options available. While this is really nice, it can also be overwhelming as you try to decide what is right for you and the environment you are trying to protect. Should you go with a traditional monitoring set up with wired cameras recording to back up drives, or a web based wireless solution? Often times price is the biggest factor when buying this type of equipment but just as often you pay for what you get. And that is where the D-Link DCS-2630L comes into play. This Wi-Fi enabled full HD home security camera is D-Link’s new flagship security product and it is packed full of features like a 180° viewing angle, 802.11 ac wireless, and much more. Follow along as we test out the DCS-2630L and find out if it really is top of the line.
We mainly know MSI for their motherboards and gaming laptops. Over the past few years they’ve really taken the time to grow their Gaming Series, which is now made up of gaming motherboards, gaming notebooks, gaming all-in-one’s, and gaming accessories. Today we will be taking a look at MSI’s Interceptor DS200 gaming mouse. This mouse features an 8200 DPI laser sensor, 9 programmable buttons, an adjustable weight system, and RGB lighting. This is the first time we’ve taken a look at a mouse from MSI so let’s see what it’s all about!
For the most part if you are doing a PC build fans come into play. Now typically your case will come with a few fans, but they are typically not enough. If you get into water cooling then you are going to want to get fans that are specifically made for water cooling, or have a high static pressure. Well Thermaltake has you covered with their new Riing LED RGB fans. These fans are made specifically for radiators and feature a LED ring that goes around the frame of the fan. This LED ring is RGB giving you 256 multi-colored options to choose from, so you can definitely match it to your build quite easily. Thermaltake is offering these fans in 120 mm and 140 mm versions that come in a single pack (1 fan) or a 3-fan pack. Today we have a 3-pack of the 120 mm fans, let’s take a look and see what they are all about.
Back in June we took a look at Thermaltake’s Suppressor F51 was and we were quite impressed. So impressed that we gave it a perfect 10 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award. The case is actually still in use as the case for our video encoding machine since it is so quiet. Today Thermaltake brings us the Suppressor F31 which is a small step down from the F51 as it only supports motherboards up to ATX, has a different fan configuration, and less hard drive space. Thermaltake has actually taken the time to re-tool the case and make it wider for easy cable routing behind the motherboard tray, and they have created some pretty cool accessories for the case as well.
