Antec P9 Windowed Mid-Tower Chassis Review
Antec is one of the most recognisable names in the chassis business, having a long history of creating many affordable, durable and award-winning chassis. It’s very likely that most of our readers at one point or another have owned an Antec chassis. With that in mind, we’re eager to see their latest chassis, the P9 Window, and take a closer look at what it has to offer.

“Don’t let the sleek, understated exterior fool you. The P9 Window is loaded with builder-focused features that deliver performance, Quiet Computing™, and future-proof expandability right out of the box. The interior volume, the variety of cooling options, and the modular HDD cages are just a few of the features that make the P9 Window stand out in the Performance One series.” – Antec

The P9 Window is certainly well equipped, and comes with extensive water and air cooling support, as well as coming with the pump and reservoir mounting brackets so you can quickly and easily get your custom loop hardware installed with ease. There are modular hard drive bays, rear SSD mounts, room for huge graphics cards and much more, so let’s get it out of the box and see how it looks!

Asrock Beebox-S 6200 Review: A cheap book-size HTPC
Asrock’s new Beebox-S is a rare middle-of-the-road mini PC.The ‘S’ in the name stands for 'Skylake' and there are two options to choose from: A Core i5 and a Core i3 model. We have the flagship model on hand for testing, which features the very punchy Core i5-6200U. Although this is only a dual-core processor, we expect it to provide quite a step up over the Beebox N3000.

EVGA DG-87 Gaming Chassis Review
Innovation and Practicality, as a designer I often hear things like “think outside the box” or “let’s push the envelope on this one”. Those sorts of phrases are an attempt to generate ideas without constraints and to find new and innovative ways to solve a particular problem. An example of this might be a specialized motherboard designed specifically for overclockers or a case constructed from a single piece of anodized aluminum. Both are quite innovative in their markets and highly sought after by certain groups and hold a certain prestige above everything else. However, neither are very practical when viewed outside of the enthusiast market.

In this review I will be looking at the DG-87 gaming chassis from EVGA. This is a full tower gaming chassis that redefines the traditional tower in ways that will make many enthusiasts angry and uncomfortable.

Oittm REALSOUND RGB Portable Speaker Review
If you walk into any electronics store anywhere in the world chances are you will eventually find yourself in front of wall or shelve filled with a wide range of Bluetooth portable speakers of all shapes and sizes by both popular and not so popular manufacturers. I've been testing such speakers for at least over half a decade now and although I’ve always placed audio precision and clarity above all else right now with the arrival of models that feature color LEDs all over their bodies appearance is yet another thing i take into account. Unfortunately with the exception of JBL and a few other popular manufacturers most models currently available in the market (and trust me when i say there are many) are manufactured by relatively unknown companies (some of which are OEM suppliers) like Oittm and their REALSOUND RGB Portable Speaker which we've been using for the past month.

Shenzhen Ruimaide Technology Co., Ltd focuses on International Transaction on Amazon. We mainly sell Consumer Electronics & Digital Products to customers from all over the world. We always have concentrated on producing high quality and innovative products to meet our customers’ demands.

The REALSOUND RGB Portable Speaker by Oittm is a splash-proof dual-driver stereo solution (the manufacturer mentions dual voice coils but i doubt they are referring to the professional line by JBL that makes use of this technology) that features Bluetooth v4.0 connectivity (can also be connected via 3.5" analog plug) grand total of 88 RGB LEDs which give it a 360 degree light show with 6 different modes (Pulse/Rainbow/Firefly/Party/Walking/Nightlife), built-in microphone for hands-free calls, touch control panel and a 3600mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack which according to the manufacturer this gives the device up to 10 hours of playback. Well as usual on paper everything seems great but the time has come for us to actually test the REALSOUND RGB portable speaker by Oittm and see just how good it is.

Palit's GTX 1060 Super JetStream is a custom design variant of the GTX 1060 with a triple-slot thermal solution that promises low temperatures and low fan noise. Also, the card is highly overclocked out of the box for a performance advantage over the NVIDIA reference design.

QNAP TS-453A QTS-Ubuntu Combo NAS Review
This is a review that I’ve been looking forward to because the QNAP TS-453A is anything but an ordinary NAS. QNAP likes to take one step further and this is clearly such a case. The TS-453A is their response to the coming era of Internet of Things (IoT) where it supports the open-source Linux platform as a gateway for IoT solutions to other smart devices.

The TS-453A allows users to directly utilize various feature-rich Linux apps, enjoying a private cloud combining storage and IoT applications, and professional developers can develop and run IoT applications directly on the TS-453A. The secure, reliable TS-453A is packed with business-critical features such as Volume/LUN Snapshot – allowing files/folders to revert to a previous state in case of any corruption or file loss. Oh, and it can work as a karaoke system as well and that’s not something that we see every day.

Sapphire Nitro+ RX 480 4GB Review
As AMD's largest AIB partner, Sapphire has been making custom cards for quite some time now. There is not a lot left to innovate in this space anymore, so just about anything can be a point of difference. As a factory overclocked card, the Nitro+ RX 480 4GB card comes right out of the box with a serious 1306MHz boost clock speed on the Polaris 10 core. What makes this card is the BIOS and thermal work done by the Sapphire team. Whereas the two RX 480 cards I have in the wings would throttle under a heavy load, this card just stays right on point at 1304-1306MHz, allowing it to deliver all it can from a capability standpoint. The memory speed of the 4GB of GDDR5 memory comes in at 1750MHz rather than the 2000MHz seen on the 8GB cards, but the sustained higher clock speed allows it to deliver a higher level of performance.

XCELLON AC Power Bank Review
Today I review the XCELLON 12,000mAh Rechargeable Power Bank with AC & USB Outlet. The model I'm testing today is PB-1200AC and is capable of powering up electronics up to 65W in power, meaning technically you can power a 13-inch MacBook Pro which consumes 60W. Not only does it have an AC outlet, it also comes with a USB port so this power bank should be able to handle just about anything you throw at it making it extremely versatile.
