The Heist earbuds are priced at under $20 and I wasn’t expecting much from them, but they’re surprisingly good sounding. So read on to learn more…
The Wicked Audio Heist earbuds come in a sort of double box, the front part is a slip cover really.

When an enthusiast hears of the new Lian Li PC-V750WX E-ATX case, what comes to mind is a very large and unwieldy case like the NZXT Phantom 820, Corsair 800D or the Lian Li PC-90. Many people would be surprised the to find out then that the Lian Li PC-V750WX is able to accommodate a E-ATX motherboard within its 230mm x 440mm x 586mm size. This is 210mm (~8.26") shorter than the NZXT Phantom 820 I last reviewed. Lian Li used some unique features to fit ten expansions slots into a case substantially smaller than any of its competitors. The real question is, with a price tag of $390 can Lian Li provide enough features on top of its compact size to make up for the substantial price gap between it and its larger competition. Benchmark Reviews will be setting out on this review to determine if Lian Li has a feature set to accommodate the gargantuan price tag for its miniscule case.
For power users who want a full powered system without the associated bulk Lian Li designed the PC-V750WX. With ten expansion slots, E-ATX support, nine 3.5" drives (six of which are hot swap), USB 3.0 and E-SATA front panel, and an all-aluminum design, the Lian Li PC-V750WX lets users have their cake and eat it. So let us see if Lian Li has gotten the formula correct for its newest addition to its flagship V series of cases.

The Cougar Dual-X is designed to push a large amount of air while maintain silence. The Dual-X accomplishes this by using a hydraulic bearing so there is less friction. The nine blades of the fan have two layers and are rigid material. The blade design also features claws. The combination of these features allow the fan to produce more pressure while decreasing turbulence and noise levels. Other noise reducing features are rubber pads and rubber fixed pin mounts to reduce the vibrations that are transferred into the chassis. Accessories include a 3-pin to 4-pin Molex fan adapter, tool-less fixed pins, and fan screws.

Although for the past 7 years or so i have used countless stereo, virtual surround and "true" surround headsets i have to confess that nothing beats an dedicated 5.1/6.1/7.1 surround sound set in terms of positioning audio, clarity, volume levels and comfort especially if you plan on spending many hours in front of the screen. Still i can't deny that headsets can be extremely useful especially when you are using it with multiplayer games (mainly because it's easier to speak with your teammates) or you just don't want to intrude on the privacy of those around you and vice versa. I guess that's also why most people i know own headsets that they use with their computers, however the same does not apply for people with gaming consoles such as the Microsoft XBOX 360 mainly because there aren't as many fully compatible headsets out in the market which is also why today we will be taking a look at the Detonator Stereo Headset by TRITTON.

Lian Li has taken a traditional mini-tower case and moved the PSU to the side of the chassis. The result is the PC-V650: a case that can still take full-sized components for a powerful rig. This unique capability, the four pre-installed fans, and a card reader, make it an interesting foundation for a functional high-end system.
