Cooling/Water Cooling by stefan @ 2018-07-19 read/post comments(0)

For enabling use in even smaller case form factors, CORSAIR has now prepared the H100i PRO RGB cooler, that shares most of the features from the 280mm radiator version. In more detail, we are talking about Asetek’s Gen6 pump design, that is more compact and was built to offer performance while keeping the sound levels to a minimum, low permeation with black sleeving tubing and the ML fans. read more

ROCCAT Horde AIMO Membranical RGB Gaming Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2018-07-12 read/post comments()

In order to try out the new Membranical switches of the Horde AIMO keyboard, we first wrote some articles in Word and afterwards we continued gaming in titles such as AION and Quake Champions: the main keys feel less rubbery when actuated versus a standard membrane switch and ROCCAT has managed to keep the sound levels to a minimum as well. The plastic casing of the keyboard does assist further with noise dampening, while the actuation point does allow the user to type without the need of bottoming out. read more

Creative iRoar Wireless Intelligent Speaker Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2018-07-07 read/post comments(0)

After fully charging the iRoar as soon as it arrived, we have connected the speaker via USB to our computer, in order to try out the Dashboard but also to check for the latest firmware updates. The software has updated the speaker firmware in about a minute and we were ready to rock! After listening plenty of clips on YouTube, some TV shows and the Death Wish movie with Bruce Willis, we were quite surprised how loud the speaker can get. After enabling Roar mode, everything got boosted, including the bass effects, which is a treat during action scenes. The speaker can deliver when playing games as well, thanks to the multitude of drivers (active (subwoofer driver and the two… read more

CORSAIR STRAFE RGB MK.2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2018-06-30 read/post comments(0)

In order to try out the STRAFE RGB MK.2, we did first write a full article and besides the good responsiveness of the keys we did also enjoy the silence. To be frank with you, our daily keyboard for work is the K70 LUX RGB that does feature the same type of switches so moving on to the new STRAFE version was pretty straight-forward. Afterwards, we did run some Quake Champions matches, but also AION that does require lots of key combinations: thanks to the powerful iCUE configuration options, it was a breeze to access the spells, while the Volume wheel is quite handy when you do not have an easy to reach Volume modifier on your headset or speakers. read more

Toshiba TransMemory U365 256GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review

Storage/Other by stefan @ 2018-06-22 read/post comments(0)

The TransMemory U365 drive comes with fast read speeds, even higher than the advertised “up to 150 MB/s” and is quite easy to operate thanks to the sliding retractable design. Depending on the capacity we do choose to go with (32GB, 64GB, 128GB or 256GB), we can fit quite a bit of content on it, in order to transfer to other PCs/Laptops. This model is also backed by a 5-year warranty from the date of purchase, which says a lot of the quality components inside the unit. read more

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2018-06-17 read/post comments(0)

After finalizing the hardware installation of the the AE-5 Pure Edition card to our test system, we did proceed further with the Sound Blaster Connect 2 installer, which did also contain the necessary drivers; in order to have the Aurora RGB setup functional, we also have to supply extra power via Molex., After adjusting the EQ with our preferences, together with the BlasterX Acoustic Engine settings, we did start the listening experience by connecting the SteelSeries Arctis Pro headset and watched various movies and TV shows. The audio output was clear, with plenty of bass and clear highs and loud enough as well after modifying the amplification, thanks to the Xamp build. We also ran multiple rounds of Quake Champions… read more
