Corsair HS60 PRO Surround Headset Review
We review the new Corsair HS60 PRO Surround Headset. The new model advances on the HS50 as it now includes a USB soundcard. We also spot a new noise-canceling boomstick MIC that is discord certified and once you connect the headset over the USB dongle (optional) you get access towards iCUE and this EQ functionality, and that offers Virtualized Surround sound as well.

Corsair iCUE 465X RGB Mid-Tower ATX Case Review
The 465X has two tempered glass panels — one covering the front and the other serving as the side panel. Knurled thumbscrews hold them in place with rubber washers. It comes with three Corsair LL120 RGB fans and a 6-port iCUE Lighting Node CORE RGB controller (very similar to the iCUE Lighting Node Pro) that connects to a USB header on the motherboard.

Corsair Void Elite Wireless RGB Gaming Headset Review
Corsair's Void Wireless RGB is something of a misleading name. Rather than a hollow shell, this peripheral promises a cord-free blitz of color and an immersive sound experience. Follow us as we stare into the void and it blinks back in all its RGB glory.

Corsair VOID RGB ELITE Wireless Review
Corsair launched their Void Pro series of headsets back in 2017 and that included both wired and wireless models. Two years later they are relooking at the lineup with a new Void Elite series. They sent over one specific model, the VOID RGB ELITE Wireless. You can see how the Pro is now Elite and RGB was, of course, added into the name as well. This new model comes in at the same $99.99 price point of the original and today I’m going to check out what is different with the new model and I’m going to see how it performs. I love wireless headsets, years ago I got tired of running over my own cord and getting up and pulling on my cord, causing damage. I’m curious if Corsair’s headset will be a good option for others who have had those same issues.

Daemon X Machina Review
Style can only go so far. A good sense of aesthetic can really carry lesser games, but there's a limit. Every time I play Daemon X Machina, listen to the music, watch a mech glide through the air, I can't help but smile. It looks striking, and the music really is a cut above when it counts. Daemon X Machina is absolutely aesthetically pleasing to look at and listen to, and that makes me wish I weren't playing, for perhaps watching would've been a better way to experience the game.

Daemon X Machina is a game with some fun ideas, a great sense of style, and poor execution in so many aspects. This just might be the widest gulf in quality I've seen in a modern game between its aesthetics and music and what it's like to actually go hands-on with the game. It's such a disappointment because this is clearly a game that was worked very hard on by a very dedicated team. It has been given the love it deserved, and the end product just doesn't appeal to me.

EnGenius ESR580 Dual Pack Home Mesh Network Review
A few months ago I reviewed the newest WiFi Mesh system by EnGenius, ESR530. Home Mesh networking is becoming an affordable solution that provides great coverage to a multi-floor dwelling. I was very impressed with the ESR530 kit and even recommended to some of my friends. Recently EnGenius released a new version of their home WiFi Mesh system, ESR580. ESR580 …

Fnatic STREAK Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
It has been a while since we last looked at a Fnatic keyboard, but in that miniStreak, we found a mechanical keyboard that was so well built, so light, and was a TKL solution, that we had to make it our daily driver. When allowed to have a look at the same thing in a full-sized variant, we took the keyboard without question, as we feel if the TKL is excellent, why should adding thirty-some extra keys to the right side of a keyboard change anything? In many of the features and the way it is laid out, we do not see many changes at all, but the one change is a significant difference, and that is the overall size of the keyboard, and the broader positioning of your hands while gaming. The list of features to draw you into a keyboard such as this is plentiful! RGB LEDs is likely the most prominent point, but things like multiple profiles, on-the-fly adjustments, multimedia keys, volume scroll wheel, software, and all the while being an exposed frame design. The fact that it is lighter than many other mechanical keyboards is also a plus, especially for those who travel with their peripherals. One of the cooler features of this product is found in what is called a signature plate, which for now displays the Fnatic name. However, it is said that Fnatic has a service to offer gamer tags or whatever you would like to have displayed in text applied to a signature plate, making your STREAK a one-off!

Gears 5 Benchmarked at 1080p, 1440p, and 4K
The last two weeks have been dedicated Gears 5 and Borderland 3 benchmarking time, with Gears 5 benchmarked at 8K proving that even a $2499 graphics card isn't ready for 8K gaming. But now, it's time for Gears 5 to be benchmarked and assessed at 1080p, 1440p, and 4K resolutions. The game is powered by Unreal Engine 4 and looks really good when it's cranked up to its highest in-game settings, but even the higher-end GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and TITAN RTX barely get to 60FPS at 4K in Gears 5. Gears 5 is the sixth entry into the series, starting out as an Xbox exclusive and slowly coming to the PC. The PC version of the game is always the best, especially when Microsoft offers up an optional high-resolution texture pack. This texture pack really shines at 4K, and crushes the souls of all GPUs at 8K.

Intel Gen 11 Graphics Takes Fight To AMD In Dell XPS 13 2-In-1
It's no secret that Intel has a lot riding on its "Ice Lake" 10th generation Core CPUs manufactured on its 10-nanometer fabrication process. The chipmaker got by on squeezing more power and efficiency out of its 14-nm node for what seemed like an eternity, but we're talking about a mobile sector that relentlessly demands more performance and longer battery life. This oft-delayed Intel process node promises to reduce power consumption and increase performance by a wide margin over the Kaby Lake Refresh processors that previously served as the brains for thin and light PCs...

Scythe Fuma 2 Review
The Scythe Fuma 2 is a compact dual-tower cooler that manages to deliver exceptional performance while also being nearly silent and fitting where other massive coolers cannot due to its 154.5 mm height. Truly like a ninja, the Fuma 2 is hiding in the shadows, poised to strike down its competition.

TeamGroup T-Force Dark-Z DDR4 Review
The masters of memory at TeamGroup are back on eTeknix once again. They’ve always proven to be one of the coolest memory brands around. Great prices, killer performance, and fantastic aesthetics. Today, I have their new T-Force Dark-Z Gaming DDR4 Memory. Now, Gaming Memory is just marketing nonsense, I know that, you know that, we all know that. What they likely mean is the performance is good, and it looks cool. Regardless, it sounds like we’re off to a great start.

The Dark-Z is pretty much what you would expect from high-end DDR4 memory though. Big heatsinks, it comes in 8GB and 16GB DIMMS, and offers speeds from 2666 MHz to 3600 MHz. So, there should be a package for just about every budget. However, the most important thing, to me at least, is what it doesn’t have. There’s no RGB, and that’s a pleasant change given that “gaming” so often means RGB these days.

Toshiba N300 NAS 14TB (HDWG21EEZSTA) HDD Review
Toshiba’s N300 NAS family of hard drives have been designed for use in high-performance personal, home office and small business NAS systems. The 14TB hard drive is one of three N300 drives in the line-up that (at the time of writing) make use of Helium technology.

The N300 NAS series comes, as you might expect for a drive aimed at NAS enclosures in a wide range of capacities; 4TB, 6TB, 8TB, 10TB, 12TB, 14TB and the very recently released new flagship 16TB model. The 12TB, 14TB and 16TB models are the only ones that make use of Helium technology.
