With the help of Maxwell, NVIDIA has hit a definite home run with its GeForce GTX 900 GPUs. In our look at the GTX 980 last week, we were left thoroughly impressed, but little did we realize at the time, the GTX 970 – and ASUS’ Strix edition in particular – was about to impress us even more.

Cooler Master’s no stranger to peripherals; when mechanical switches became the hottest thing overnight, it wasted no time getting into the lab to make sure it created products people yearned for. The company’s just-released NovaTouch TKL highlights that goal, with its “Hybrid Capacitive” switch – one that really, really surprised us.
BitFenix’s Neos mid-tower chassis sits at the lowest rung of the company’s chassis product line.

Ahem. Microsoft Windows 1, 2, 3, 95, 98, ME, XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 10. Yup – that sounds about right. At a press event held in San Francisco this morning, Microsoft took the veil off of the OS that’s set out to make us forget all about the debacle known as Windows 8. Despite […]
It’s time to buckle up for another gaming mouse release, but this one is far from ordinary. Today, ROCCAT has announced that it’s begun shipping its Tyon gaming mouse.

If you’re a water cooling enthusiast (and perhaps even if you’re not), you’re probably aware that, for the longest time, coolant has circulated from the reservoir to the water pump to the water block(s) via flexible tubing (usually made out of PVC).
