Join us in a review of the new OCZ Trion 150 series SSDs. In a saturated and dense market, budget is trivial. The new Trion 150 series are all about value. It is an SSD series that is 100% Toshiba proprietary, that includes the controller and NAND flash memory.

Fractal Design released new Define Nano S series PC cases, we review one in an all black design. Fractal design obviously oozes style and build quality. For this release the focus is placed on the Nano, and it's to be found in the word already, Nano as in small. This chassis is intended to be used for Mini-ITX usage. Yet it can still house many components including a fully fetched graphics card. Not bad for something you place on a 15x15 motherboard, eh?
We take a look at Rise of the Tomb Raider in relation towards PC gaming graphics card performance with the latest AMD/NVIDIA graphics card drivers. Many graphics cards are being tested and benchmarked. We have a look at performance with the newest graphics cards and technologies. We'll also look at frametimes, graphics memory and a thing or two more.

We test and review the all new Corsair Hydro H5 SF Liquid cooler. Now if you think that the product is a strange looking contraption, well it is! But for good reason, this is the first ever AIO liquid cooling solution for small form factor mITX solutions. That's right, this puppy will hover over your mITX motherboard with impressive cooling performance.

We review the Seagate ARCHIVE 8 TB HDD. Though SSDs are the thing to purchase these days, if you need massive bulk volume storage then you'll need a HDD. We are not disappointed at all in regards to price and value for money.

In this review we test the ASUS Z170 ROG Maximus VIII Formula. Armed with a bling customizable AURA RGB LED system, some extensive shielding and then regulars like the hippest features of 2015/16 and you are sure you'll have the right infrastructure for gaming de-li-cious product. If you fire it up with that new 14nm Skylake based Core i7 6700K processor this product will bring a smile to your face.

We review the Zalman ZM1000-EBT power supply. This new model comes Gold certified, that means it's 90% efficient at 50% load. Efficiency matters. The PSU itself is fully modular, for most of you with a side panel window in their chassis that is a must really as you'll want modular cables. Have a peek at the article.
The latest in the Carbide series of PC cases from Corsair would be the 400Q and 400C. The C (Clear) model comes with a see through side panel while the Q model (Quiet) is aimed at silence. It is exactly that silent model we'll place under the microscope in this review. The new model is aimed at a more audiophile tense segment as it has sound dampening materials all over the place.

We check out the Bluetooth capable Wavemaster CUBE mini, a 2-channel 2-way stereo sound system that you can hook up to your PC, or alternatively use on your Bluetooth HDTV or Smart-phone to listen to tunes on. With the trend being Sonos the prices on kits like these are artificially inflated upwards through the roof. Wavemaster however figures, 'heck we can do that in terms of audio quality easily...' and at a price that is three times cheaper.

Small, smaller, smallest? Shuttle now offers their new and tiny XPC NC01U. It is so small that you can mount this fully fetched Windows 10 Ready PC behind your monitor. With power consumption below 10 Watts this thing offers incredible fun. Armed with an Intel Celeron 3205U Processor clocked at 1.50GHz and then combined with M.2. SSD, a decent chipset, USB 3.0 ports, 2.5" SSD support as well as AC WiFi and a Gigabit LAN jack you will be surprised to see what this product offers.

In this review we look at the the new PowerColor PCS+ Radeon R9 380X MYST 4GB. This graphics card will render your games even in the WHQD 2560x1440 range. And all that at a very reasonable price as well. With 4GB as standard for graphics memory you can game with decent image quality settings too. Follow us into this review where we'll look at temperatures, noise, performance and go with the latest game titles on the globe.

In this December 2015 update we'll talk HDR, low framerate compensation (LFC), FreeSYnc for HDMI and the move to DisplayPort 1.3 compatibility.
We review the new Carbide Series Clear 600C chassis from Corsair. This new chassis in the Carbide series is totally unique in design as it makes use of a reversed ATX form factor. Pretty much you flip everything around and you'll have the first intricate impression. The end result is a chassis that is not only unique, it's a fantastic looking one with lots of features as well. Something different, and we like that very much.
We review the Z170A SLI PLUS from the MSI PRO Series motherboards. Armed with an attractive budget € 159,- price this series not only looks fantastic, it's very fast and tweakable as well. A motherboard that offers features plentifull to provide your Intel Core i3/i5/i7 Skylake processor the full infrastructure is needs for a delicious gaming PC. Dressed in black and with added benefits like USB 3.1, a fully fetched M.2. slot and DDR4 support the product will amaze.
