Swiftech Komodo R9 LE GPU Water Block 11-30-2014

Swiftech recently released their latest GPU block design, the Komodo R9 LE and Komodo NV GTX9, which match the aesthetics of their Apogee XL.

The base is manufactured of copper that has been chrome plated instead of the more commonly used nickel and the housing is acetal with transparent window.

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.
