ASUS ROG GeForce GTX 980 Matrix Platinum Review
This product has been designed for the true aficionados that sub-zero cool the product in order to shatter a benchmark or two. it comes with a whopping 14-phase VRM. For the more regular folks there's still plenty off changes making this product super nice. It has a custom cooler, a custom PCB, quality components and a factory overclock, all that whilst staying silent. The card has 4 GB graphics memory, is energy efficient and factory overclocked for you. Oh and hey, it overclocks nicely as well to roughly 1500 MHz on the GPU boost frequency.

BitFenix Pandora (Black, Windowed, Icon) Review
BitFenix lists a number of variants of its Micro-ATX Pandora case. The basic Core model starts at £80 and rises to £84 if you add a windowed side panel. The regular Pandora has an ICON LCD display on the front and costs £90 with plain side panels or £95 if you go for the windowed version. The model we have here is the Pandora in black with windows and ICON display so it is the most expensive version at £95.

Corsair Graphite Series 760T
Last month I had the chance to check out Corsairs 380T. It didn’t take long before it made it up near the top of my must buy list for a LANrig. Today I’m going to see what Corsair has going on in the full size market with their 760T. It shares a lot of the same features as the 380T so I have high hopes. Sadly, the 760T is only available in white or black so there isn’t an eye catching color like the 380T’s yellow but our “Graphite Black” sample still looked good at first glance. Let’s find out what it has going on when we give it a closer look.

Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 2666MHz Review
We revisit the Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB quad channel memory kit featuring four 4GB DDR4 memory modules following our initial look at the Intel X99 platform. Each module is rated at tested speeds of 2666MHz with 15-17-17-35 latency and 1.2V operation. It's still pricey at $250 for the kit, so hit our review to see what performance you can unleash for the price!

Kingston DataTraveler microDuo 3.0 OTG 64GB USB Flash Drive Review
I doubt there's a person out there who has never owned a USB flash drive (some girls i know haven't but you get my point) but lately with Tablets and large smartphones getting for good in our lives things have changed quite a bit. The reason is that conventional/standard USB flash drives can't be easily used (you can always purchase an adapter) with smartphones and tablets so if you happen to own one and you want to use it to its full extend getting one of the latest OTG (On the Go) models is obviously your best way out. Unfortunately until recently most OTG USB flash drives featured USB 2.0 compatible ports which were not ideal for copying large files and that at least to us was a large problem. USB 3.0 compatible OTG USB flash drives are now available however and the first one to land in our hands is the DataTraveler microDuo 3.0 64GB model by our friends over at Kingston.

Taiwan Tour: In Win
During our trip to Taiwan in the beginning of November of last year, we were also given the opportunity to visit In Win, a case manufacturer which has recently been producing an impressive amount of rather special enclosures. In the meantime, they mainly focus on making lots and lots of cases for OEM parties. They have multiple factories, and invited us to visit not one but two of them. We were more than happy to oblige.
