You should not publish email addresses on your website, as spammers run programs that sweep the web looking for email addresses to build a database to send spam or sell said database to other spammers. This kind of program looks specifically for the HTML code "mailto:," meaning clickable email addresses are more prone to be collected by spammers.

The Cooler Master Cosmos and Cosmos II are some of the best cases on the market as far as features and options go. They are also renowned for their shear size as well; however, Cooler Master has gone and shrunk the venerable Cosmos just a tad and made a few other tweaks. The result is called the Cosmos SE and it might just be awesome. The Cosmos SE has a boatload of features I’m just dying to tell you about right now. Luckily for you, Cooler Master sent me over a Cosmos SE to check out, so let’s test it and find out if it’s as amazing as I suspect it will be.

Since the G-Sync monitors are designed to refresh with your frame rates, dips in FPS no longer affect your experience it's all buttery smooth through and through. Words only go so far though. Seeing it in person was truly eye-opening. We were shown a live demonstration comparing a regular monitor to a G-Sync monitor with both an NVIDIA-made demo and the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot. You can watch a video I recorded of the whole thing, but keep in mind that the video is impacted by the limitations of my camera. While you'll be able to notice some clear differences during certain points of the demo, particularly when rotation is enabled on the pendulum demo, the difference was even more striking in person.

The VisionTek Radeon R9 280X is an excellent card in terms of performance. I threw it up against an SLI setup and in most cases it was able to out perform it and at a cheaper price too.

OS X remains the best consumer-level desktop operating system, despite Microsoft's impressive catch-up in Windows 8.1. Top-notch, unobtrusive security is a major plus, as is tight integration with social media and the ability to run Windows applications through third-party apps.

Today we are taking a look at a rather interesting case from Cooler Master. It is their HAF Stacker 935. What makes this case so interesting is that it is actually two cases in one. You have the HAF Stacker 925 (main compartment) which can house E-ATX, ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards. Then there is the HAF Stacker 915F which can house a Mini-ITX system or external watercooling. What is really cool about these cases is that they are stackable, hence the name HAF stacker. So with the 935 you are able to stack the 915 on the top or on the bottom of the main compartment to create the ultimate system. Cooler Master has designed these cases so you are able to route cables between the two as well. Read on as we take a look...

For today’s review we will be looking at an iPhone 5/5S screen shield from Tech 21. The Impactology Impact Shield is designed to keep your iPhone 5/5S safe on the one area that most cases do not protect – the screen. Unlike other shields this is a multilayer structure that is designed to absorb and dissipate force away from the point of impact. It is composed of three layers – a hard top layer designed to spread the impact force, a middle layer using BASF BulletsShield Protection polymer to absorb the impact and finally a soft base layer that further absorbs impact force.
Most standard screen films concentrate the impact force at the point of contact; this shield is designed to dissipate the force along the body of the shield reducing the risk of shattering your iPhone screen. In addition it also has a self-healing anti-scratch capability.
Tech 21 has developed several Impactology cases for mobile devices now they are working on producing the best screen shield on the market.

Xigmatek announced availability of its Nebula cubical mini-ITX chassis. Unlike other monolithic cubical cases with bluntly rounded edges, the Nebula features a few interesting design bits. You'll find the case seated on a chrome bottom-tier, and an equally suspended top-tier. The black panels feature a piano-black finish. One of its edges is sliced into with the case's power LED glowing in amber/orange. Front panel connectivity includes a pair of USB 3.0 ports (standard header) and HDA front-panel jacks.
Under the hood, the Xigmatek Nebula features room for a normal-sized mini-ITX motherboard, with room for up to 200 mm long dual-slot graphics cards (an ASUS DirectCU Mini will make it). There's also room for CPU coolers that are up to 80 mm tall. Its storage area has room for two 3.5/2.5-inch drives, with no optical drive slots on offer. There's room for a standard ATX/EPS power supply. The case passively draws in air from bottom vents, a 120 mm Xigmatek XOF PWM-controlled fan pushes hot air out from the rear.
