All-round Deluxe PC - November 2017
The all-round Deluxe PC will last you a few years without requiring any upgrades. It is a bit more expensive, but is very complete as well. Using the internet, gaming, business applications, photo and video editing - all of these are possible on a good all-round PC, and you should never feel that you are lacking in performance for any of those activities.

This means a good processor and graphics card from the upper mid-range segment. Fast, yet affordable. You also need enough RAM and storage space, not to mention an attractive chassis and reliable power supply that can last several years. Of course you need a quality monitor, mouse and keyboard, as these are used very frequently.

This PC will cost more than the standard all-round PC, but it is also more powerful and has higher-end components. If this exceeds your budget somewhat, then you can have a look at out standard All-round PC instead.

Corsair ML120 Pro RGB Review
Not forgetting the main feature of the ML120 Pro RGB fans, the lighting is provided by 4 LEDs located at every quarter-turn around the centre hub of the blades. Those lighting effects are providing by the Lighting Node PRO, a small device included with the ML120 Pro RGB package that connects to the Corsair Link software via a USB header.

Corsair ML140 Pro RGB Fan Kit Review
When I reviewed the Corsair LL RGB series of fans, I came away thoroughly impressed, as they offered great looking RGB effects and moved a good amount of air while remaining very quiet. The Corsair LL RGB series of fans would go on to earn the Legit Reviews Recommended Award, but I did fathom when Corsair would take the next step and bring RGB lighting to their incredible series of ML Pro fans, which feature magnetic levitation bearings and custom designed rotors to allow for low-noise, high airflow operation. Corsair ML (Magnetic Levitation) Pro fans are considered some of the best case fans on the market by enthusiasts, with Corsair touting them as being the fans NASA would develop for PC. While the Corsair ML series of fans have been available with single-color LED options for some time, it was only natural that Corsair would take their best fans and add programmable RGB lighting, allowing them to now fit into the Corsair LINK ecosystem. Now, PC enthusiasts who have been waiting for Corsair to bring RGB lighting to their ML Pro fans can fork over their money for some low-noise, high airflow RGB goodness...

Corsair PBT Double-Shot Keycaps Review
It all started with a post in the Corsair User Forums back on February 5th, 2016 by Corsair Henry. Henry asked the Corsair community who wanted to buy double shot key caps if they available to purchase and how much money would they be willing to spend. That forum topic has garnered over 300 posts since then and it appears that was enough for Corsair to launch a product as you can now purchase Corsair Gaming PBT Double-Shot Keycaps for K95, K70, K65, K66, K63 and STRAFE keyboard models. Read on to see how the switch from ABS to PBT keycaps went!

Gigabyte Z370N WiFi Review
An almost-perfect Mini ITX board. Intel's consumer CPU focus in the first half of 2017 has been on maximising the efficiency of its laptop chips. We can argue for this point because, lately, most of the firm's innovation has been centred on the U-series. Now offering four cores and eight threads hewn from the Kaby Lake architecture, these 15W silicon supremos put desktop efficiency to shame.

The enthusiast and DIY market has had something to shout about at last, though. You see, the chip giant debuted 8th Generation Core Coffee Lake-based chips just last month, packing up to six cores and 12 threads at similar thermal and wattage levels as the previous generation. But getting your hands on such a platform also requires investing in a Z370 chipset motherboard, meaning it's a clean break, as the 7th Generation Core processors won't work in the new platform.

But that's OK for a number of folks upgrading from, say, a PC that's three to five years old. To them compatibility between generations is an academic concern, so the only question that needs answering is which chip and board to get? You can go normal ATX, you can go a bit smaller and look at Micro ATX, but fully appreciating the overall platform-level efficiencies baked into new architectures, why not run with Mini ITX?

Intel Optane SSD 900P Review: The Fastest, Most Responsive SSD Yet
Intel gave us a taste of what its Optane could do on consumer desktop systems a few months back when it launched its Optane Memory technology. Those miniscule drives did a great job caching data to give compatible systems packing slower hard drives a huge boost in responsiveness and overall performance. The performance characteristics of Optane Memory also left many enthusiasts chomping at the bit for higher-capacity, speedier Optane SSDs for high-end desktops, however. Fortunately, the wait is now over. Intel recently launched the brand-new Optane SSD 900P series of drives and we can with certainty say that it was absolutely worth the wait...

Sennheiser HD 660 S Headphone Review
In the audio community, the Sennheiser HD 650 is something of a legend – an excellent value headphone, it delivers exceptional audio quality without costing the earth. It is perhaps a bold move, then, for Sennheiser to release a successor to the much-loved HD 650, named the HD 660 S. With a price of £429, is this the new go-to headphone for budget audiophiles?

Team TForce Cardea NVMe SSD 240GB review: gekoelde SSD
The M.2 size standard for SSDs is the result of trying to fit hard drives into the ever-slimming laptops without compromising on the bandwidth. Within the world of desktops, this new standard causes a heating issue as the modules are placed flat on the motherboard, where there is little airflow. Team appear to have a solution in their new Cardea-SSD.

In technical terms, the TForce Cardea is not unlike the Kingston KC1000 and the Corsair Force MP500. It is based on the 15nm flash memory module of Toshiba and has the Phison PS5007 controller. The standout feature of it is the red heatsink that covers the entire M.2 module.
