AQIRYS T.G.A. Wired Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2022-05-26 read/post comments()

By including the PMW3389 16000DPI sensor from PixArt inside a lightweight case, a customizable chassis with different colors, a weight system, a paracord cable but also a nice RGB lighting system, the T.G.A Wired mouse does really stand out in the mainstream mouse crowd. We were quite happy with its performance in Borderlands 3, V Rising, GTA V but also Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy, where it tracked flawlessly, but is ideal for office work as well given the overall low weight of the chassis. read more

CORSAIR iCUE LC100 Case Accent Lighting Panels Review

Others/Miscelleneous by stefan @ 2022-05-23 read/post comments(0)

The LC100 is an interesting RGB device which will add even more eye candy to your desktop setup and is easy to configure and work with thanks to the modular construction and the included magnets. Since each triangle module does pack 9 LEDs, via the application we can enable smooth animations, while the white diffusers do make the light look awesome! Besides the cable length, there is basically no limit regarding the shape you can build, and an extra Tile Expansion set can be purchased for nine more triangles you can attach to the original starter setup. read more

SteelSeries Aerox 5 Wireless Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2022-05-20 read/post comments(0)

Right after setting up the CPI and button settings to our preference, we fired up multiple titles such as Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy, SWTOR, GTA V and Space Punks; due to the low weight, the mouse is easy to work with, while the comfortable shape and high-end sensor do really make a good combination. If you need to react fast, Aerox 5 Wireless has your back and the two side buttons are easy to work with; the third button near the top needs a bit of a learning curve though and can be mapped with two different functions. read more

Sabrent Rocket XTRM-Q 2TB TB 3 / USB 3.2 External SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2022-05-11 read/post comments(0)

By using Thunderbolt 3, the Rocket XTRM-Q 2TB does bypass drives using USB 3.2 Gen2x1 and even the newer USB 3.2 Gen2x2, by offering a theoretical bandwidth of 40Gbps. This aspect helps a lot for both reads and writes, succeeding to beat the other tested drives, even when using a different, lower-specced system. By using Micron’s 96L 3D QLC NAND flash, the drive can maintain a high sustained write rate until the SLC cache is being filled up and, in our tests, we noted that the drive won’t go under 170MB/s in this scenario. read more

CORSAIR iCUE H150i ELITE LCD Display Liquid CPU Cooler Review

Cooling/CPU Cooling by stefan @ 2022-05-09 read/post comments(0)

The high-end iCUE H150i ELITE LCD Display AIO from CORSAIR does offer fantastic performance and includes the durable and low-noise ML RGB ELITE fans along with the 2.1’’ pump IPS LCD display with the 480x480 resolution and a maximum of 30FPS refresh rate. As the 240mm size, the 360mm variant of radiator is more compatible with a large range of cases versus 280mm and we have all necessary equipment for the setup to only take one USB 2.0 header on the motherboard. Given the large number of wiring (two cables for each fan, controller cabling, pump cabling etc…), we will spend more time than usual to route and hide the cables in the back of the motherboard, but the result… read more
