Patriot Memory Viper V551 RGB Optical Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2021-05-07 read/post comments(0)

After choosing our preferred DPI settings and button mappings, we fired up NieR Automata, Zombie Army 4, GTA V and Resident Evil 7 Biohazard; the mouse has tracked without any issues on our cloth pad and we enjoyed the positioning of the extra buttons. The supplied braided cable is a bit more rigid than the one we have seen with other models, but this aspect can be fixed by using a mouse cable bungee. read more

CORSAIR iCUE SP140 RGB ELITE Performance 140mm PWM Fans Review

Cooling/VGA & Other Cooling by stefan @ 2021-05-03 read/post comments(0)

The iCUE SP140 RGB ELITE fans from CORSAIR are targeted towards more budget-conscious people and do offer good airflow thanks to the anti-vortex vanes, with a CFM of up to 68.1. These can be successfully installed on computer cases but also on AIO radiators for improving the stock kits, while the RGB effects will be controlled via the included Lighting Node Core (shipping only with the dual-fan kits). For powering the fans, we would also need a fan controller but for a more ideal iCUE integration we would opt-in for the CORSAIR Commander CORE RGB & PWM Fan Controller. read more

SteelSeries Arctis 7P Wireless Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2021-04-26 read/post comments(0)

After connecting the headset to our test computer, we have adjusted the EQ settings and then went ahead to play various games such as Forza 4, Outsiders, Drift City and Call of Duty: Warzone: the headset is being able to deliver the same pleasing audio quality as the Arctis 9, with well represented bass and clear highs and we have found the Sidetone Volume wheel to be quite handy when talking with the fellow gamers. The only missing feature is the DTS HeadphoneX V2 surround, which was quite accurate, and we enjoyed it quite a bit on the Arctis 9 model; this was replaced by Playstation 5’s Tempest 3D AudioTech, present on the described console. read more

Patriot Memory Viper V380 Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2021-04-19 read/post comments(0)

Even without installing the supplied software, we did really like how the Viper V380 does sound like, thanks to the very large 53mm neodymium drivers. The product is initially configured in order to offer more bass, ideal for gaming purposes but can be fine-tuned for other purposes as well by using the downloadable utility. The software interface requires a system restart for the headset to be recognized correctly but afterwards all will become functional. read more

Memory by stefan @ 2021-04-12 read/post comments(0)

The Neo Forza Mars 32GBx2 3200MHz C16 kit has performed great on the test platform and provides the much-needed capacity for productivity work that requires more resources such as video encoding. If you have a case with a plexiglass window, the kit can deliver quite a show, being compatible with RGB utilities from the most known motherboard manufacturers! read more


Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2021-04-08 read/post comments(0)

After customizing the DPI and button mapping with our preferences, we started up gaming in Outriders, Diablo 3 and DOOM Eternal: the mouse felt great when used with a palm grip, while the PixArt PMW3392 sensor has tracked flawlessly even more intense action scenes. The paracord cable and low weight of just about 74 grams completes the experience and if the setup is installed optimally you may think that you would be using a wireless mouse instead. read more
