SteelSeries Rival 600 Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2018-03-16 read/post comments(0)

After installing two 4g weights on each side of the mouse, we started gaming in CounterStrike: Global Offensive, Guild Wars 2, Diablo III but also tried a bit of Agents of Mayhem; Rival 600 succeeded to keep the comfort level optimal even 2-3 hours of continuous gaming and during this time we did not spot any erratic movement. While our lift-off setting was set at 0.5mm, players that use to lift the mouse more during the sessions should adjust the value as necessary. The main sensor (SteelSeries TrueMove 3) remains the same as with the Rival 310, but sports a more aggressive appearance, while much more RGB segments are available for configuration. read more

C7Z370-CG-IW is a feature-packed ITX motherboard which supports the latest range of Intel processors and for additional reliability, SuperMicro has used server-grade components.

Crucial MX500 500GB SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2018-03-09 read/post comments(0)

Considering the fact that the MX500 SSD does feature TLC NAND packages, we were expecting a sudden performance drop after the buffers have been filled, but fortunately it was not the case! The drive succeeded to maintain write speeds around 320-360MB/s (small-medium file sizes) even after writing a total of 176GB in one go. The 500GB version comes with a TBW of 180TB, while the MTTF is 1.8 million hours. Crucial MX500 does also feature a 5-year warranty period, which is great! read more

Creative Chrono Portable Splash-proof Bluetooth Speaker and FM Radio Clock Review

Audio/Speakers&Amps by stefan @ 2018-02-28 read/post comments(0)

Chrono is a very affordable portable speaker from Creative which provides good audio quality and can be pretty loud, judging by its small footprint. We did really enjoy its vintage LED alarm clock appearance, the multitude of inputs it does support (Bluetooth, analog, microSDHC), but also comes with a FM module. The frontal display comes with large LED segments and its brightness can be adjusted on multiple levels. At medium sound level, from our tests, the speaker has lasted about seven hours, after which it did need a full recharge. read more

Cooling/CPU Cooling by stefan @ 2018-02-25 read/post comments(0)

By using Asetek’s Gen6 design, a reworked LED lighting system and the highly-awarded ML fans, H115i PRO RGB does succeed to drive stock and overclocked systems, while maintaining considerably lower noise levels than before! The cooler can also function in Zero RPM mode, as we have seen with several newer video cards and is controlled by LINK, from where we can adjust the speed of each fan, choose from one of the three pump operating modes, but also work with the LED lighting system options. read more
