ASUS ROG Maximus XI Apex Motherboard Review
Over the past year I have reviewed quite a few really great Z390 motherboards from the Aorus Z390 Waterforce Xtreme to the EVGA Z390 Dark and MSI MEG Z290 ACE. All of these boards were designed with Extreme Overclocking in mind and all except one responded well to casual overclocking and basic system tuning.

In this review we’ll be looking at one of the Apex predators when it comes to overclocking who is docile out of the box and can unleash the fury when it is time to shine. The ASUS Republic of Gamers Maximus XI APEX is the latest version of APEX motherboards designed to be the top of the line when it comes to performance potential. The motherboard comes with the features we have come to expect including Aura RGB Lighting, large VRM heatsinks and great sound. However, it is missing many of the “retail” features that you might find on more mainstream ROG motherboards like the Formula and Extreme. These other boards are still feature packed but with tweaks designed for special retail builds where looks and cooling options might be more important.

Chillblast Fusion Trigger GTX 1660 Ti Review
Ryzen and GeForce make fine bedfellows. Renewed competition in the CPU space, coupled with the arrival of mid-range Nvidia Turing graphics cards, makes this a good time to consider a new gaming rig. We're seeing plenty of sub-£1,000 PCs from leading system integrators, and it's an area of the market we find particularly interesting, as there's a delicate balance when attempting to juggle performance, desirability and value.

Assembling a high-end PC at any cost is arguably an easier task; working with a strict budget is where the real challenge lies. Scan Computers set a high bar with the £970 3XS Gamer 1660 Ti, PC Specialist opted for greater graphics firepower with its £899 Vortex S1, and now Chillblast is throwing its hat into the ring with the £950 Fusion Trigger GTX 1660 Ti.

Logitech G240 Mouse Pad Review
It's safe to say that the gaming market is saturated with mouse pads. There are many different types, even RGB-backlit ones, yet Logitech's G240 stands out of the crowd rather well. It's a medium-sized, ultra-thin cloth mouse pad with a rather unique surface type, rubber backing, and non-stitched edges.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Review
A couple of weeks back, NVIDIA launched the latest edition to its Turing-based GPU line-up, the GeForce GTX 1650. As its name suggests, the GeForce GTX 1650 is similar to the recently-released GeForce GTX 1660 and 1660 Ti, but it is powered by a different GPU with somewhat tamer specifications, which results in a lower price point as well...

TT Level 20 RGB Mechanical Review
Thermaltake has launched its new flagship gaming keyboard - is it worth £160? Thermaltake recently released the new Level 20 RGB mechanical keyboard and it’s definitely packed with a lot of features. Not only do you get Cherry MX Speed switches, there’s also tonnes of RGB lighting as well as USB and audio passthrough ports. On top of that, there’s even support for Amazon Alexa via your mobile phone. While the Level 20 does come in around the £160 mark, does it do enough to justify that price tag?
