NZXT DOKO PC Streaming Device Review

Others/Miscelleneous by stefan @ 2015-02-16 read/post comments(0)

DOKO is a new PC streaming device from NZXT which allows connecting peripherals remotely thanks to the USB Over IP technology and connects to our TV via HDMI (1080P@30Hz).

By teaming up with Asetek and Cool IT they are able to use the latest technology and add to these provided cooling solutions their own little trademarks. Lately the AIO market is closing the gap on the Do it Yourself market performance wise. The generated noise to deliver the best cooling can still be somewhat over the top, though by introducing the 140mm fan versions a better performance versus noise ratio was achieved. Nevertheless in this market one can never rest on its laurels. Other brands alike Fractal Design and LEPA introduced some interesting products that gave similar specced Hydro products a decent run… read more
