It really seems that no matter how many PC gaming peripherals we get to test in these pages there are always more around and with Christmas just around the corner we don't have that much left time to publish each and every single one of those reviews, at least not prior to entering 2013. The good thing however when testing gaming peripherals is that you can actually test more than just one at a time (for example a keyboard, a mouse, a mouse pad and a headset) and so with the recent release of several game titles such as Far Cry 3, Assassins Creed 3, Planetside 2 and Hitman absolution we had just the right material/tools with which to perform all our tests. So today we will be taking a rather thorough look on the BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical Gaming Keyboard by Razer.
The Crucial Ballistix Tactical LP 16GB 1600MHz DDR3 Memory Kit performs similarly to the Crucial Ballistix Elite 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 kit we tested previously. Overclocking attempts netted up to 15% performance gains in some of our benchmarks. Overall we found the Tactical LP kit was capable of running stable at 1866MHz with slightly relaxed timings (9-9-9-24) at 1.5v.
The CM Storm Stryker is the next PC-Case in the Technic3D Editorship. The Stryker supports XL-ATX, ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards and have place for four 120mm, one 140mm and one 200mm Cooling-Fans. We will check this and many more in the following Review.
Our latest sample from them has a particular destination as well. It is heading straight towards those with very little spacing inside their towers. Those using some of the very small chassis from Lian Li and Silverstone may be in the market for a cooler like the one we are about to review. The NH-L9i is designed to cool the lower wattage processors that we are seeing pop up all over Intel's roadmap. The cooler is very and I mean very low-profile, just 37mm with fan. It is designed to tame the little heat that Intel's 77 watt TDP processors produce. Coupled with a NF-A9x14 cooling fan, the two can fit into the narrowest of spaces.
NVIDIA does such a great job filling holes in its product line-ups, that sometimes it manages to fill a void we didn’t even know existed. The GTX 650 Ti is a perfect example of this. This GK106-based card sits close to the GTX 660, and with GIGABYTE’s overclocked GV-N65TOC-1GI, we’ll see if we can close the gap even further.
The ASUS G75VW is a gaming laptop computer with a third-generation Core i7 processor, 17.3" 3D screen, two hard disk drives, a GeForce GTX 670M discrete video card, sound system with a subwoofer, and much more. Let's analyze this powerful machine.
The KingFast Ultra-Cache solution is composed from a 32GB SATA2 SSD and special software which will boost our storage system performances after the caching procedure has been completed. What is nice about this solution is that we do not have to perform a Windows system reinstallation to make it work.
