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

We review and benchmark among the coolest of them all, the ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Ti Poseidon Platinum ROG edition graphics card. This GeForce GTX 980 Ti based product comes factory overclocked and sports hybrid cooling up-to the level of enthusiast liquid cooling. Combine all that with the default goodness the GeForce GTX 980 Ti has to offer like the 6 GB graphics memory and this product simply cool.
We review the MSI GeForce GTX 950 Gaming (in SLI as well), this entry-level to mainstream graphics card is armed with a GM206 Maxwell generation graphics processor from Nvidia.

ASUS offers it in a Strix edition and comes with some nice factory tweaks. Let's check it out, shall we?
In this review we check out the 2GB version of the Palit GeForce GTX 950. The GTX 950 is the entry-level to mainstream graphics card in the Maxwell range of GPUs from Nvidia. Palit offers it in a Storm-Dual version which we hope lines up with the dual-slot-dual-fan cooler. Let's check it out, shall we?

We review the all new Strafe, a Cherry MX Red mechanical keyboard that is not only affordable, it's quite customizable as well. The Strafe comes with Cherry key switches and red LED back-lighting, that is per-key configurable. There are some more options and features improved with this basis and concept as it has a trick or two encompassed in the new design as well. Let's have a peek shall we?

We review the ASUS Radeon R9 390X STRIX. The card's equipped with that renamed Hawaii GPU, now called Grenada. Thanks to a huge triple slot air cooler based on the new DirectCU III design the product is purring at just roughly 83 Degrees C, that's under full gaming load whilst being factory overclocked towards 1070 MHz on the GPU base clock.

In this review we test the ASUS Z170 ROG Maximus VIII Hero. If you fire it up with that new 14nm Skylake based Core i7 6700K processor this product will bring a smile to your face. The Maximus VIII Hero comes with a ROG black & grey design with red accents. Add to that the hippest features of 2015 and you are sure you'll have the right infrastructure for gaming de-li-cious product.
We review the Intel Core i5 6600K processor developed at a 14nm node; these processors are very energy friendly. For this review we look at the performance of this processor in a wide variety of benchmarks and situations.
We review the Skylake Intel Core i7 6700K flagship quad-core processor fabbed on a 14nm node. This little puppy is fast, agile and in full attack mode - but will it be worth an upgrade over the previous gen technology?
In this review we test the ASUS Z170 Deluxe. Armed with that new Core i7 6700K processor this product is bound to please. The Deluxe comes with a nice black & white design with added benefits in USB 3.1 and the fastest WIFI solution we have ever tested! Interested? Have a peek!
As Intel launches 14nm Skylake procs we review Intel Series 100 motherboards. In this review we cover the ASRock Z170 Gaming K6. These new motherboard come with a cool design, USB 3.1 and some very nifty features. Next to that it also surprisingly energy friendly.
We have yet another Z170 motherboard review, this one is the MSI Z170A Gaming M7. 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 command & conquer.

We review Godavari, the new A10-7870K APU from AMD. Initially intended for system-integrators who want to offer a nice APU at a reasonable price. However the 7870K today also will see the retail channel, the top dog APU from AMD is costing roughly 140 USD only and offers a nice balance in-between performance and energy consumption.

We review the MSI X99A GODLIKE motherboard, this motherboard from their Gaming series isn't shy when it comes to naming.

We review the Thecus W4000+, this is a NAS unit that doesn't run linux for a change, no Sir its operating system is Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials (WSS). Armed with WSS you receive a NAS unit that really is a complete server with expensive software. You navigate in a Windows environment and while using all the luxurious options and features that come along with it.

Have a peek at the product we'll review today, the Silent Base 800 Window.
