Corsair Obsidian 750D Review reported at 01:04 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
Overall the build quality is very good, the case is easy to work with, and it provides very good cooling in the base configuration with the three included 140mm fans. If you are looking for a high-end case with great looks and a little more room than a typical mid-tower enclosure has to offer, then the new Obsidian 750D might just be what you are looking for.

Asus RT-AC66U Review reported at 11:10 AM
category: Internet Routers     website: Missing Remote
Article Quote:
When it comes to speed and range the ASUS AC-RT66U shines, but unfortunately the same cannot be said when it comes to stability in operation -- especially in Media Bridge mode. Some of this can be overcome by running the 802.11AC router in its default subnet (192.168.1.1), although it is concerning that deviation from this causes issue on both end of the bridge. Otherwise the flexibility to operate as a Repeater, which is stable (in 192.168.1.1), though bandwidth suffers in this configuration but still manages to consistently deliver more than 100Mbps inside of 45’. Unfortunately there is no fix for the abysmal support ASUS provides, which makes it difficult to recommend the $189 RT-AC66U to anyone not comfortable handling any issues via DIY.

SilverStone NT01-PRO Review reported at 10:21 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Frosty Tech
Article Quote:
What's the bottom line on Silverstone's NT01-Pro low profile SFF/HTPC/4U rack case heatsink? The NT01-Pro is good for a wide range of modest TDP processors from both the Intel and AMD stables. I'd suggest any processors with a TDP of 150W or less will be easily managed by the heatsink, so long as fan speed is kept high. At lower fan speeds the NT01-P heatsink was really only able to manage with the 85W TDP test scenario. As for 200W TDP processors - the Silverstone NT01-P is a little out gunned for it's own good.

Cooltek U3 Review reported at 10:08 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"The U3 is perfect for those who want to build a dual-GPU system or if looking for a greater choice in motherboards, as ITX can be expensive and scarce. The U3 may then cost a tad bit more than the U2, and may be a bit larger, but it still saves you money because it can house a broader range of motherboards. The Cooltek U3 also allows for a greater selection of components, and its excellent construction quality makes it a great and unique case."

Thermaltake MEKA G-Unit Review reported at 10:05 AM
category: Keyboards     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
Possibly the worst thing I can say about the MEKA G-Unit Illuminated keyboard is that it doesn’t do a whole lot to separate itself from the competition. Then again, it follows the “Back-lit Programmable Mechanical Gaming Keyboard” formula pretty closely, so I wouldn’t expect it to. If you like what you see, prefer Cherry Black switches and manage to snag one at a good price, you’ll probably be satisfied.
