ASUS ROG ORION PRO Gaming Headset Review
Posted by: Brann Mitchell on: 05/01/2013 07:10 AM [ 9 comment(s) ]
The ASUS ROG Orion Pro Gaming Headset are a mid-range set of cans aimed at online gamers. Meant for extended sessions of gaming, they offer very high build quality, light weight with generous padding that make them disappear on your head. The Orion Pro produce very good sound quality, gripping bass and very clear treble, and the retractable microphone is respectable with some adjustment to volume. The included Spitfire USB Audio dongle adds value, but was a mixed bag. Offering interesting features like virtual surround, FPS 'EQ', and an amp, but decreased the overall sound quality to my ears. Besides that, the Orion Pro are one of the best headsets I've tested so far, and for $120US, are a pretty good deal to boot. Highly recommended.

Guru3D Rig of the Month - March 2013
Posted by: Hilbert Hagedoorn on: 03/29/2013 09:57 AM [ 16 comment(s) ]
The Guru3D Rig of the Month March 2013 is all about style and a quality build. Though I'm sure many will love it it remains to be one of these hate/love builds. We think it's impressive alright and the craftsmanship is just excellent. meet Conrad Yeo Kai Kee, at the age of 33 he build this creature and named it Project Rampage. This actually is his first first ever attempt in modding and also water cooling of rigs. Lots of time is spent in reading and sourcing out items needed for the build. Have a look and be amazed.
