In this review we test the ASUS Z170 ROG Maximus VIII Extreme. Wanna see how the best that ASUS has to offer for Z170 works? The Maximus VIII Extreme comes with a ROG black & grey design with red accents. Add to that of course the OC Panel and the hippest features of 2015.

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. Tied onto the PCI Express 3.0 slot and armed with a 2TB volume sizes, this product is here to command & conquer as we indeed measure number closing in on 3 GB per second and there and there it even touches the 4 GB per second marker.
In this article we benchmark the Star Wars Battlefront Beta - multiple 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 review the new In-Win 805 PC Chassis, a product series that is designed for ease of use and terrific looks as the side panels and the front panel have been fitted with tempered glass. And does make this chassis look very special. Wanna have a peek?

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.

Interesting, nice and maybe even a little weird is what we like to describe the Guru3D rig of the month September 2015 - and hey a little weird is what we like. Check out the build from Srdjan a shipping agent, his build - Raised from the dead, as he literally raised it from the dead apparently.

This round we review the MSI Z170A Gaming M9 ACK. The big brother of the M7 comes with extended looks, AC WIFI, a VRM that can be liquid cooled and then a dozen or so other features. It is one of the best looking products if you ask me, dressed for success and with added benefits like USB 3.1, multiple M.2 slots and the fastest DDR4 support the product will impress.

We review the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 950 Xtreme Gaming OC edition. The GTX 950 is an entry-level to mainstream graphics card in the Maxwell range of GPUs from Nvidia that sits pretty nicely in the 1080P domain. Gigabyte offers it in the all new Xtreme Gaming edition and that means the cards comes with some nice factory tweaks and a new cooler. Let's check it out, shall we?

We review the Gigabyte Z170X Gaming G1, an Intel Z170 based product that is loaded with kit and features. The motherboard has a new let's call it F1 design and even is quad-SLI/Crossfire capable. Combined with a few extra's and an overall high class build Gigabyte is showing a mighty fine offering. But how will it perform?

We review the new Corsair Gaming VOID RGB wireless headset. The Dolby certified VOID is the successor model to the Vengeance series and works through a USB transmitter on the 2.4 GHz Wireless band. One charge will get you hours of wireless headset gaming over two quality 50mm drivers.

There's a new AOI player in the arena, EK now is offering the Predator series liquid coolers. We test the Predator 240 which is an all-in-one liquid CPU cooler for cases with 240 mm radiator mounts. Armed with a nice thick radiator, proper tubing and an excellent water-block the pre-filled and fitted kit is easy to install, and yes... impressive from any point of view we tested it!
Small, tiny and cute are the keywords for the AMD Radeon R9 Nano that we review today. The product has an incredibly small form factor yet is powered with a Fiji XT chip that brings some significant gaming performance to this graphics card.

We review the Cooler Master Quick Fire XTi mechanical keyboard. This Cherry MX mechanical keyboard comes with new RB (yes not RGB) LEDs. Overall a simple looking yet very versatile keyboard with some very cool per key LED lighting features that can animate and has compatibility with macro's, without the use of any software.

We review the PowerColor DEVIL Radeon R9 390X. This product is Hybrid cooled meaning air for the VRM area and liquid cooling on the Hawaii GPU, now called Grenada. Thanks to this cooler the card hovers just above the 50 Degrees C, that's under full gaming load whilst being factory overclocked towards 1100 MHz on the GPU base clock.

Shuttle has jumped on the Mini (HT)PC market with their new and quite funky looking DS57U . In its bare essence this pretty much a tiny fanless PC that is armed with an Intel Celeron 3205U Processor clocked at 1.50GHz and then combined with a decent chipset this puppy offers USB 3.0 ports, MSata and 2.5" SSD support as well as WiFi and two Gigabit LAN jacks. Not bad for a product that doesn't have any active fans right?

We review one of the most discussed motherboards when it comes to design, the MSI Z170A XPOWER Gaming Titanium edition review. It probably is the most interesting looking motherboard released ever thanks to a new PCB coating. Combined with a few extra's and an overall high class build MSI might have a true winner here. A motherboard that promises to deliver a high amount of features and provide that Skylake processor the full infrastructure is needs for a kick-ass gaming PC. Dressed to kill and with added benefits like USB 3.1, multiple M.2. slots and the fastest DDR4 support the product will shock and awe.

Subtle, small and simple is what we like to describe the Guru3D rig of the month August 2015. Victor at the age of 33 years made this petite build called Akvo. Though it is a very common and normal build, there's something about Akvo.
Thunder clouds hover above the Guru3D test-lab as the MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Lightning edition will now get a review. Yes, we test and benchmark one of the most anticipated GeForce GTX 980 Ti cards of the year, the Lightning edition graphics card. This GeForce GTX 980 Ti based product comes factory overclocked and sports some seriously cool cooling. Armed with 6 GB graphics memory this product is bound to impress.
At the launch of the Radeon R9 Fury and Fury X AMD also announced something that caught the interest of many, a small form factor yet high-end graphics card aimed at powerful small game and HTPCs, yes the Nano today is announced
