Gigabyte Z97X-SLI Motherboard 04-13-2015

The Gigabyte Z97X-SLI is an SLI-capable motherboard priced very attractively for budget gamers. Due to licensing models with Nvidia, not all chipsets and boards are available to support SLI. Additionally, the board will support CrossFire natively as all Z97 boards do. This model also features high-end ALC1150 115dB SNR audio, a high quality headphone amplifier and a dedicated audio hardware zone to protect from interference. Intel Gigabit LAN, all solid caps and a new heatsink design round out the feature list.

Swiftech H220-X AIO Liquid Cooler 11-03-2014

The Swiftech H220-X combines the MCP30 pump into either a dual 120mm or dual 140mm radiator, similar to their previous MCR-X20 Drive series. The H220-X, however, relocates the pump from the end of the radiator to a spot beside the fins for a more compact length. They've also integrated a backlit reservoir window so users can easily check the coolant level without opening up the system. Finally, they opted to integrate their current flagship water block, the Apogee XL, into the mix.

Cougar 700M and Speed Gaming Mouse and Pad 09-22-2014

One look at the Cougar 700M Gaming Mouse and I was immediately reminded of another mouse I had recently reviewed, the Thermaltake Level 10. Upon closer examination there are more than a few differences between them, however compared to the typical computer mouse, they share a few similarities. For one, both exhibit a barebones-style open architecture with an aluminum skeleton. Both also feature adjustable panels to customize the fit to the user's hand along with fully programmable buttons and a high attention to detail on the fit and finish.
