Rosewill R5 Mid Tower Case Review

When building a new system I think one of the hardest things to decide on is your case.  It is something you are going to have to look at every day and something you may want to show off at a LAN party.  With that said many people do not have the money for a flashy over-the-top computer case.  Many people would rather have a functional case than one that looks cool.  The <strong>Rosewill R5 Mid Tower Case</strong> comes in at about $70 and features 3 included fans, fan controller, USB 3.0 support and removable air filters.  Is the case for your next build?  Read on and find out!

Phanteks PH-F140TS 140mm Cooling Fan Review

Phanteks have been working in the cooling market for almost 20 years, but relatively recently they decided to breach into the consumer space with the incredible PH-TC14PE. Receiving rave reviews across the industry, Phanteks have made a name for themselves in very little time by dethroning the Noctua NH-D14, which was regarded as the king of air CPU cooling for quite some time. If you were to obtain a Phanteks PH-TC14PE, you’ll also be provided with 2 <strong>PH-F140TS 140mm case fans</strong>. These fans are rated to have very high airflow whilst not making much noise, credited to their Maelstrom Vortex Booster design on the blades of the fan itself. We’ve received the blue version of the PH-F140TS, but it comes in black, red, orange and white too. Keep reading if you want to see if this fan is able to blow away the competition.

ROCCAT Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard Review

Every once in a blue moon I’ll be perusing the interwebs and I’ll see a nifty ad that I’ll actually click on. God forbid that I actually click on an ad with the chance that I might inadvertently install a virus that will eat my computers insides, BUT when that blue moon happens I set all care aside and do it anyways. During one of those very select times I saw an ad for a rather compelling keyboard made by this company that I’ve never heard of: Roccat. After clicking on the ad I was transported to a black and blue world of epic gaming peripherals. After flipping through a couple of the very sexy products it took me about negative 4 seconds to message Bob via Facebook and say, “You need to get products from this company called Roccat”. He replied instantly with something that made me quite happy, “They’re already on their way, a keyboard and mouse.” First on the agenda is the <strong>ISKU Illuminated Gaming Keyboard</strong>. From what I saw on the website I should be expecting a lot but after reviewing more keyboards and mice than I care to think about I know that I should never judge a book by its cover, even though this book looks cool as funk.
