MSI Radeon R9 270 Gaming OC Graphics Card Review @ Hardware 360
MSI has created an exceptional graphics card that will have no issues playing games at 1080p all while running cool and quiet. While the architecture isn't completely new the performance-per-watt is better than the last generation and AMD is kicking ass on the gaming bundle front.

Today there are almost countless manufacturers of aircoolers out there but there are still companies, which think that there are some niches, that have not yet been addressed. With their THEMIS, Raijintek has decently sized tower cooler in its portfolio which should convince with an excellent price/performance ratio.

Cooler Master has been known for their line of AiO coolers for quite some time now and, even though they've got a pretty wide selection already available, they constantly seem to come out with something new. A perfect example of this is seen with their new Nepton Series of liquid CPU coolers where they are 140mm class units, yet they can accomodate 140mm or 120mm fans. Our friends at Cooler Master sent us one of these new Nepton 140XL to throw on the bench and check out.

Although i never was much into online MMO games i have tried most of them (out of curiosity mostly) and one of the things that was immediately clear to me from day one was that compared to normal FPS, platform, RTS, simulators and other game types online MMO games require a lot more buttons/keys both on the keyboard and on the mouse. That's mainly because when playing online with dozens of people (or even with thousands in games like PlanetSide 2 one of the very few online games I do enjoy playing) you can't afford to have the same speed/efficiency like you would with a single player game when faced against computer controlled opponents. Now back then it did take some time for gaming peripherals manufacturers to see that gap in the market and start producing gaming keyboards and mice with more buttons on them than usual but now several years later we see more and more such MMO oriented products get introduced quite frequently. The VOLOS MMORPG Gaming Mouse is the latest product designed and manufactured by our friends over at Tt eSPORTS and after roughly one week of testing today we can finally upload our opinion about it.

t won't be long now until we start seeing industry predictions for 2014, and with the arrival of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, it's fair to assume that it'll be a massive year for gaming. Yet, while the next-gen consoles will hog the limelight this holiday season, it could well be the PC that takes the driving seat.
Valve's Steam Machine is the latest attempt to bring high-end PC hardware into the living room, but over the course of the next few months, we can also expect to see a new wave of hardware aimed at self-builders who are eyeing-up a small-form-factor (SFF) gaming rig.

When scrolling through the comments regarding our CPU gaming performance articles, quite a few of you guys were asking if for once, we could compare not only two but three generations. Today we're giving this a shot but it turned out that especially the conclusion was quite a bit tougher than when comparing two CPUs. Nevertheless we're hoping this article is also going to be an interesting read. We believe that quite a few gamer out there might be interested in seeing Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge and Haswell quad core parts without hyper threading in a gaming performance article.

It was only a short time ago that I was taking a look at Logitech’s new G700s wireless gaming mouse. Not too long after that Logitech actually announced another wireless gaming mouse that would be sold alongside of the G700s, this one is called the G602. Unlike the G700s, the G602 wasn’t an upgrade to a previous model. The G602 a considerably different in design compared to the G700s and it also does not use a rechargeable battery. Logitech did however introduce it with a big promise, they claim 250 hours of gametime in its performance mode, an impressive number for a gaming mouse. Let’s dig into the G602 and find out if their claims have merit and find out what it’s all about.

ADATA recently announced availability of their new DashDrive Elite SE720 External SSD and sent one along to us for analysis. Without stealing the thunder of this entire report, the SE720 is ultrathin, extremely well-built, has LSI SandForce speeds and we were floored at the Amazon pricing we found that brought this external SSD below that of many similar bare 128GB SSDs. Let's take a bit of a closer look and see just how well this external SSD is put together.
