As Guru3D regular Hans Peder Sahl has built himself a PC worthy of being called, the “Engineering Station”. His build is intriguing in many ways and all about the design and liquid cooling. Well that and the coolant flow, check out the video to understand it. The end result, if you ask us is vastly impressive.

We review the Be Quiet! Silent Base 600 with side panel window. The new revision in this SilentBase series is a more compact version of the silent series chassis.

A lovely chassis design that remains tool free, it offers decent space to work in and it has very quiet airflow plus is prepped for liquid cooling. Have a peek at the product we'll review today, the Silent Base 600 Window.

We review the RipJaws SR910 USB headset from G.Skill, this gaming headset offers 7.1 channel audio with the help of not two, no 10 drivers. Yep five in each ear-cup. The headset is aimed at gamers who like precision audio, so that when they get sniped .. they will actually hear the bullet coming from behind them. Well, at least the rifle firing I guess. The SR910 comes with retractable boom MIC (environmental noise cancelling) and even an USB control pod which you can use to alter each and every audio channel. Armed with nice looks, proper audio quality this head set can be purchased for just 139 USD.
It is that time of the year again, we take out a dozen or so graphics cards and benchmark Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Join us in this article where many graphics cards are being tested with the new title. We have a look at DX11 performance with the newest graphics cards and technologies.
EK Predator 360 AIO CPU & GPU Liquid Cooling review
Posted by: Hilbert Hagedoorn on: 11/05/2015 09:46 AM [ 23 comment(s) ]
EK is back and this round with a massive 360 Predator series liquid cooler. We test the Predator 360 on a Core i7 4790K processor and will add a Radeon R9 Nano to the all-in-one liquid cooling loop. The end result is terrific as even overclocked our graphics card would not even pass 40 Degrees C. The nice thick radiator, proper tubing and an excellent water-blocks that are pre-filled and fitted kit are downright terrific.

We review the SuperMicro C7Z170-SQ gaming series motherboard. SMC is predominantly active in the server market, however they have a new gaming line of consumer grade mainboards, and that we have to check out. Armed with that new Core i7 6700K processor this product comes with okay aesthetics. But how will it compete with the big names like MSI, ASUS and Gigabyte?

As Guru3D forum regular Alec has built himself a PC worthy of being called, the Rig OF the Month October. His PC is called XOSKEL and is based upon the In Win D-Frame Mini, with a tweak or two of course. The end result, if you ask us is impressive, very impressive.
ASUS ROG Matrix GeForce GTX 980 Ti Platinum edition review
Posted by: Hilbert Hagedoorn on: 10/28/2015 09:39 AM [ 12 comment(s) ]
We review the ASUS ROG Matrix GeForce GTX 980 Ti Platinum edition. It is the most high-end series from the ASUS Republic of Gamers team, a graphics card that was redesigned to perform and to be tweaked. The product comes factory overclocked at fairly high levels and has got that all new DirectCU based cooling design. The card has RGB LEDs that change color based on the workload, a defroster that prevents condensation build-up with sub-zero overclocking, and even a safe-mode button that can rescue you from overly-zealous overclocks.

It comes with per key configurable full RGB LED lit keys that can be animated and profiles, next to that these mechy keys also have trick or two encompassed in the new design as well. Let's have a peek shall we ?

We review a 2TB PCIe SSD from A-Spec aka KingSpec. This puppy is rated to be capable at performance numbers that reach the 3 to 4 GB per second. This PCIe SSD unit has is based on an internal RAID solution with separated mSATA SSD units.

In this review we benchmark the new KFA2 / GALAX GeForce GTX 980 Ti HOF, a product that impresses by design as it offers great game rendering performance at quiet noise levels. Hey, with its white design it also looks terrific. Add to that a sturdy design and back-plate. Obviously this HOF edition comes factory overclocked. Arm that with the sweetness that is the the GTX 980 Ti GPU with its 6 GB graphics memory and you will quickly realize, this product lives and breathes for global gaming domination.
