Cooler Master MasterCase MC500M Computer Case Review
reams to me have always been an interesting thing. In my first year of university, I attended a basic psychology class, where we learned about theories as to the origins of our dreams, but there was no one precise answer. To me, I think dreams are often about the things on your mind during the day. I personally have had some really wacky dreams. For example, when I first purchased my car, I always worried about whether or not I actually locked my car doors. Even though it became so routine, I always second guessed myself that I would turn around and hit my remote to check once more. Thus, for the first month of owning my car, I dreamed about losing track of my car or finding it missing. I also think the people you dream about are also the people you are thinking about, which makes it really weird when you have a significant other or someone you admire. On the other hand, the other dreams I have are either ones that come out of the blue, ones that repeat all the time, or the strange case of dreams within dreams. All in all, these night stories are very much a mystery, but I think it is just more fun to have them than to analyze where they come from. For today's review of the Cooler Master MasterCase MC500M, this comes from a refreshed lineup of Cooler Master, with more modularity infused into their products. With a newfangled power supply plate combined with a similar layout, Cooler Master has dreams and aspirations of making this case your main one. However, is this the case? Read on to find out!

Frostpunk Review
What makes a good leader? Leaders are people who have to make impossible choices on a daily basis. What kind of person and leader do you end up becoming after making an impossible choice, though? That’s the question the team at 11 bit studios poses to the player in what they call the first society survival game, Frostpunk, a natural evolution of the themes already seen in This War of Mine.

At its core, Frostpunk is a city management sim that takes place in a frozen wasteland and you’re tasked with ensuring the last bit of the human population survives these terrible conditions and prevent the extinction of the species. The people you’re managing are the inhabitants of London and they need a home. New London is going to be humanity’s attempt at a second chance.

Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen Review
Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen is a group-focused MMORPG based on challenging gameplay and open world high fantasy. It takes place on a world populated by deities and heroes, called Terminus. Mortal and planar shards which have collided create the dramatic and epic environment of Terminus. With some of those shards came deities and demigods that, over time, raised empires which forged the turbulent political landscape. Centuries later, new planar collisions have occurred that will pull the players into the world and its politics. The player is a legendary hero, stripped of his or her powerful relics and left to explore the dramatically diverse and epic regions of Terminus with hopes of reclaiming their relics and those of lost heroes.

Pantheon’s combat places a focus on preparation and awareness of the enemy. The player can actively dodge, block, or deflect attacks. Spell and ability pre-selection is critical to defeat encounters, as is forging alliances with other players. You won't want to be caught in the wilds of Terminus alone, but exploration of the vast and dramatically diverse world landscapes will be richly rewarding. Through exploration the player can uncover mysteries and unique adventures as well as acquire rare and exotic spells and abilities from dungeons and challenging encounters.

Samsung 970 PRO SSD Review
The 970 PRO makes use of 2-bit MLC V-NAND, along with the new and refined Phoenix controller, claiming speeds up to 3500MB/s read and 2700MB/s write. 500,000 IOPS in random read and write is also quoted. These numbers, on paper at least, make the 970 PRO around 30% faster in sequential performance and over 50% faster in random access than the previous generation.

Thermaltake Core P90 TG Edition Mid-Tower Chassis Review
Thermaltake has a reputation for creating big and outlandish chassis. Of course, that’s not a trend that’s expected to change anytime soon, as they’ve sent us their rather bonkers Core P90 TG. It’s one of the biggest mid-towers we’ve ever seen, and likely that you’ve ever seen. It comes with a unique three compartment design that can be mounted vertically, horizontally, or even mounted on a wall if you’re brave enough. Offering the looks of a test bench and a display case all in one, this is a seriously bonkers chassis for those who want something outlandish to show off their hardware. However, what’s it like to build and live with? Let’s take a look!
