FSP Twinkle 65 Slim Universal Notebook Adapter Review @ ModSynergy.com
"Today I will be reviewing an interesting universal power supply made from a well known power supply maker Fortron Source Power Group (FSP). FSP Group manufactures (themselves and for others) power supply units for the PC since 1993 and are the 5th largest power supply vendor in the world. FSP Group makes power supply units for companies such as OCZ, Silverstone, Antec, Sparkle Power, Thermaltake, and much more.
The FSP Twinkle 65 Universal Notebook Adapter I am reviewing today is advertised as the smallest and lightest 65-Watt notebook power adapter on the market today making it a unique option to have because it'll help unload the weight from your notebook bag when travelling. Supporting 99.9% of all 19v notebooks on the market, we'll see what else the Twinkle 65 can offer you and how it performs."
Gigabyte GA-Z170X-GAMING G1 (Intel LGA-1151) @ techPowerUp
"Gigabyte's GA-Z170X-Gaming G1, their top-level Gaming board product, has been on my test bench. Featuring high-end audio with swappable OP-AMPs, support for Quad SLI and Quad Crossfire, USB 3.1, and a host of other features to meet the discriminate gamer's needs."
Micron M510DC 480GB SSD Review @ NikKTech
"Consumer reports over the last couple of years have shown that consumers of all types check mostly two things when out to get a new SSD, price (more specifically price/capacity) and performance. The same fortunately doesn't apply for enterprise users since performance and endurance are the two primary concerns but i doubt there's a single company out there that wouldn't like to save some cash when getting new storage media. This has left room for strong competition even in the enterprise market so this is perhaps the only time since the introduction of SSDs (as we know them at least) that we've seen pretty much every major player in the market invest in such models. Micron of course couldn't stay this one out and since their M500DC SSD line (introduced just over a year ago) although it proved to be a worthy opponent to other similar models did cost quite a bit they went ahead and introduced the new M510DC line."
GIGABYTE Z170X-Gaming G1 Motherboard Review @ PC Perspective
"GIGABYTE did a fine job with the design and layout of the Z170X-Gaming G1 motherboard with a plethora of features and innovations to appeal to a wide variety of enthusiasts. One of the more impressive board innovations is with its embedded multi-colored LEDs, enabling the user to customize the look of the board and rear panel shield to match virtually any case aesthetic. The addition of the 22 digital power phases and the reinforced PCIe x16 slots is that much more of an added bonus, not to mention is dual M.2 slots. Further, GIGABYTE redesigned the integrated cooling system so that all heat sinks are connected to one another via nickel-plated copper heat pipes. The board performed well with noted caveats at stock speeds and its integrated Creative audio subsystem is top notch."

"When it comes to picking out an SD card to go along with your camera, you can be quickly overwhelmed by the number of cards available in retail stores and online.

“Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have derickwm's “Alaskan Arctic” build. Here is what he had to say about it, "A new system builder called AION approached me and asked me to design their flagship system, this will be available in very limited quantities and will be able to be purchased in the Fall!"
PNY GTX 950 2GB Review @ KitGuru
"So far we have looked at GTX950 partner cards from Gigabyte and ASUS and today we continue our coverage with an analysis of the new PNY GTX950. While other GTX950 solutions so far have incorporated dual fans inside the cooling shroud, PNY have opted for just a single fan. The big question we need to answer – can it possibly compete? "
ASUS ZenFone 2 Review @ Hardware Secrets
"The ZenFone 2 is the new smartphone from ASUS, with a 5.5 inches Full HD screen, Atom Z3580 CPU, 4 GiB of RAM, 13 MP camera and Android 5.0. Let's take a good look at it!"
MSI GTX 960 4GD5T OC Reader Review @ OCInside.de
"A new user review has been published on OCinside.de. This time the video card MSI GeForce GTX 960 4GD5T OC has been tested by user Hipp0campus. The price class of 200 EUR is traditionally fiercely fought over by the two leading manufacturers AMD and nVidia. The price-conscious gamer can usually find a fitting piece of hardware in this category for letting him/her play the most recent video games at high settings. Currently the search for a card of this range for your pc turns out to be more of an act of faith. The nVidia GTX 960 as well as the AMD Radeon R9 380 are equally good choices. One point in favor of the GeForce card would be the lower Power consumption under heavy loads, but we will get to that later on."
Tenda AC15 AC1900 Dual-Band WiFi Router Review @ Benchmark Reviews
"It used to be a pretty well understood fact that merging to the 802.11ac wireless standard was an expensive task, with just the thought about having to replace both your router and wireless card made anyone’s wallet shudder, but that was back in 2013. Come back, three years in the future, and we encounter devices like the one Benchmark Reviews has in it’s hands today. The Tenda AC15 AC1900 Router is not only AC capable, but it features a Broadcom’s BCM4708 Wi-Fi chipset capable of delivering speeds of up to 1300 Mbps over the 5 Ghz band. Astonishingly, it comes at only $87.99, which is the lowest price tag we have ever encountered on any AC1900 router."

Ozone Argon Ocelote World @ techPowerUp
"Ozone's Argon Ocelote World mouse is a reskin of the Argon, Ozone's top-of-the-line gaming mouse. For around €50, it offers the same ambidextrous ergonomics design, an 8200 DPI laser sensor, and physical feature set as the regular Argon in a striking orange color theme."
MSI GE72 6QF Apache Pro Review @ Vortez
"It was only a few days ago that MSI announced a large selection of new notebooks featuring the newly released Intel Skylake processors and today we have the pleasure of taking a look at the GE72 6QF Apache Pro. GE72 is armed with Intel’s new Core i7-6700HQ, 16GB DDR4 and NVIDIA’s GTX 970M, so we’re expected good things from this mid to high-end notebook. On the subsequent pages we’ll be putting GE72 through its paces to give you a definitive verdict."
XTracGear Carbonic XXL Surface Review @ Hardware Slave
"So what is the Carbonic XXL Surface and how does it differ from the previously reviewed surfaces? This one is designed to fit beneath your keyboard and mouse. The Carbonic XXL is slim design and will fit more shallow desktop areas with greater ease.
ROCCAT Nyth Gaming Mouse Review @ Madshrimps
"ROCCAT Nyth is like a breath of fresh air in the already crowded gaming mice market which sports quite a modular design with replaceable right side panel, no less than four different sets of buttons, a smooth durable plastic texture, catchy LED light effects and a comfortable shape for lengthy gaming sessions. Considering that we are getting plenty of accessories, ROCCAT saw fit to also include a carry case and the software available for the Nyth is one of the most advanced we have seen to date, which maintains the feature we did like in the previous revisions, the audio feedback."
Samsung Portable SSD T1 @ Bjorn3d.com
"Even though many of us are using more and more cloud storage for things like images and music there still is a need for local storage on our desktops and laptops. On a desktop it usually is quite easy to just pop in another SSD or regular hard drive but this is not always the case for a laptop. Most laptops come with just one SSD or hard drive and upgrading to a large one can be a chore and also cost a lot. A better solution is to use an external drive to store non-OS-files but these drives more than often use a regular hard drive, either at 5400 rpm (slooow) or 7200 rpm (faster but still slow). Luckily we are starting to see more external drives that use faster SSD’s and the external drive we are reviewing today is one of these; the Samsung Portable SSD T1. This is a tiny external drive that uses an SSD to give us exceptional speeds over USB3."
