AZIO ATOM Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse Review
AZIO has really impressed us in the past, especially with their lineup of retro classic mechanical keyboards, and today we have a product that keeps with the trend of doing things a little differently. We first got a glimpse of the ATOM at CES 2018, and it really stuck out to us, as the ATOM is AZIO’s ambidextrous gaming mouse designed to be a solid fit for both left and right-handed gamers. The ATOM looks to be a gaming mouse built around the basics, so lets see just how it stacks up.

Cooler Master MasterAir MA610P Review
What makes for a prime air cooler that impresses with its looks as much as with its cooling performance? Too often, air coolers sway to one extreme or the other.

Big air coolers are known for their dominating presence mounted atop PC motherboards, sporting large fans, complex cooling towers, and gleaming, serpentine heatpipes that seemingly grow out of the processors they are designed to cool. We are seeing new models making use of RGB-color-controlled lighting that is typically compatible with four-pin RGB-capable motherboards to provide quiet operation while allowing a cascade of 16.7 million colors. Your chosen hue glows from under the cooling shroud, around and through the cooling tower fins, emanating brightly from each fan hub.

Cooler Master MasterBox Q300L Review
Today we'll be exploring the delights of a new Micro-ATX chassis by way of the MasterBox Q300L. Like the rest of the Q Series, Q300L utilises a compact design which still seeks to deliver on functionality. Inside this Mini Tower there is space for high-end kit and we can even use it in a vertical or horizontal orientation.

Cougar GX-F 750W PSU Review
Cougar have been in operation now for some time and for years have been releasing a plethora of cases, cooling products and power supplies for the mass enthusiast audience. As many of our readers already know, historically they haven’t scored very well in our analysis – because I will be honest – for the most part, many of their power supplies haven’t really been very good.

Dream Machines DM3 Mini Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse Review
While we have had the pleasure of testing a couple of mice from Dream Machines in the past, all of our knowledge so far is relegated to the DM1 Series of mice. Since that time, Dream Machines had released the DM2 Comfy, Which was a spin-off of the DM1 mice, but had more aggressive styling, but kept the same sensor, which at the time was one of the best gamer-centric optical sensors available.

Sadly we did not get to see this mouse, but with time perpetually passing by, Dream Machines has upped their game once more, and we are here to tell you all about their latest submission to the world of peripherals.

DREVO ARES 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD Review
DREVO is a new company for us to work with here on Legit Reviews, but it was formed by a group of gamers in Beijing, China back in 2015 and has released some pretty good hardware and solid prices. DREVO has been targeting the PC gaming market with their products and have released a number of Solid-State Drives (SSDs), keyboards, and accessories like PBT Keycaps. We got a chance to review their flagship SSD, the DREVO ARES 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD, and couldn't pass it up the chance to take it for a test drive.

DREVO D1 M.2 2280 240GB Internal SSD Review
Last year, Hardwareslave went out to test the cheapest M.2 SSD 240Gb drive there was, no matter who made it, or what it was. We stumbled on the DREVO D1 M.2 2280 240GB Internal SSD, at the time it was the cheapest we could find in M.2 Form Factor. We purchased it for £64.99, a bargain we thought, but our tests would show if it was a bad purchase or not.

We have also been running it for six months to ensure it wasn’t going to fail or degrade in performance. So, six months have passed, we’ve benched it, and used it as a spare storage drive on any system configuration we had running for testing, this is what we found out!

GALAX/KFA2 GeForce GTX 1050 Ti EXOC EDITION Review
In this article we'll review the bright GALAX/KFA2 GeForce GTX 1050 Ti EXOC, the graphics cards come in an all-white design, the two fans and cooling radiator make sure that this budget-minded cards never reach 60 Degrees C under load. We say budget minded as these cards are supposed to be very affordable and positioned in an attractive 139 dollar (US) segment. The reality is more difficult though, the product as tested today costs closer towards €199,- in the EU and $239 in the USA. The 1050 Ti series is Nvidia's answer to the Radeon RX 460 and 560, with the Ti models even flirting with the Radeon RX 570 from AMD. Both the GeForce GTX 1050 and Ti graphics cards are based on Pascal, fabbed with fins (FinFET) on an even smaller node, 14nm. As it turns out, the smaller fabrication process works out really well for Nvidia as they have been able to cram 3.3 Billion transistors into a very tiny 132 mm² chip. The GeForce GTX 1060, 1070 and 1080 have been a high-clocked success story ever since their launch. The new GeForce GTX 1050 and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti should suit gamers on a budget. Please note that there is no Founders Edition of the GTX 1050 (2GB) or 1050 Ti (4GB), you will only see board partner models. Based on a GP107 GPU the top model "Ti" SKUs will get 768 shader processors. The entry-level "regular" 1050 model will get 640 shader processors. By itself, it's nothing to dream about when you read the specs, but 14 nm has been treating Nvidia well, and as such you are going to notice fast clocked models and if you tweak a little, you should be able to reach that 2.0 GHz marker on the GPU Boost frequency.

Into The Breach Review
I want to make this review short because I need to go back playing Into The Breach. FTL was one of the most moreish games I ever had the (mis)fortune to stumble across, and accounts for dozens of afternoons, evenings and nights spent idly jumping between the stars and desperately trying to find a fire beam. Into The Breach has somehow perfected that formula that I didn’t realize wasn’t perfectible in the first place.

Into The Breach is a beautifully simple, instantly understandable game. You control three mechs, known as Riftwalkers, that have to battle the monstrous Vek destroying Earth. Just picture Pacific Rim and you have a pretty solid grasp of the story. The maps you fight in are small, comprised of an 8×8 grid in which every monster, mech and mountain take up one space. Inside this grid, despite its simplicity, is a world of variety, puzzle and satisfaction.

Sound Blaster Vanguard K08 RGB Mechanical Keyboard Review
Everyone has their favorite companies to buy from with regards to PC hardware and peripherals. Ask 50 people what the best graphics card is or who makes the best keyboard, you’ll get 50 different answers. But where things like graphics cards can be backed by benchmarks, keyboards are purely subjective.
