ASUS ROG THOR 1200W Power Supply Review
We review the all-new ASUS ROG THOR power supply from ASUS, we'll peek at the new 1200 Watt Platinum certified model. ASUS aims to release a powerful, efficient and very aesthetically pleasing unit, for the biggest PC aficionados.

Let's face it whenever ASUS stamps a product with a ROG logo, things are a little more enthusiastic then need to be. The THOR is such an example, while most people will never even see the PSU in their chassis, ASUS embedded RGB lighting (Aura sync compatible) as well as a little OLED display that will show your actual measured power consumption (wall side). The looks are just downright terrific. It's not just that though, Seasonic (actually a massively modified PRIME) is the OEM behind this PSU and we all know they make marvelous power supplies, with a bill of materials supplied to them and increased heatsinks for cooling ASUS wanted to bring a PSU series to the market that sets itself aside from others.

And with a 1200 Watt unit, they certainly do. The question remains though, who really needs a 1200 Watt power supply these days? Yep, that's likely far less than 0.01 %? Luckily ASUS is also releasing a far better suited 850 Watt model, which also is more affordable as the 1200W model will cost you a steep $349,- whereas the 850W model can be spotted for $249,-

BELOW PC Review
BELOW is finally here, but is it worth your time? Back during Microsoft's E3 conference in 2013, developer Capybara Games announced BELOW — a dungeon crawler meant to harken back to titles like the first Legend of Zelda, but with procedurally generated areas and permanent death mechanics that give it a roguelike flare. Things got complicated, though, and the game was in a lengthy development process up until December 14, when BELOW was released to both PC and Xbox One platforms. The game is finally here.

Braxley Bands Review
Third-party Apple Watch bands have been around since Apple debuted the original Apple Watch back in 2015, typically offering customers a low-priced alternative to styling their watch, as opposed to Apple's bands, which start at 50.

A new option for shoppers is now offered by an Austin, Texas-based company called Braxley Bands, which sells 30 Apple Watch bands with a unique twist: they're unibody bands that are fully elastic and stretch over your hand to lay on your wrist.
