With the smaller form factor PCs being all the rage these days, more and more people are switching to using media center PCs for watching TV and movies. However, the smaller the case, the more heat it must dissipate. Depending on the setup, this could cause more ambient noise than one would want while trying to relax and binge on Game of Thrones or nap while their wife watches some random romantic comedy. What if there was a completely silent chassis? One where you didn’t have to worry about fans and noise. We’d like to thank the good people over at Streacom for providing us with the FC9 Alpha fanless chassis for this review as well as the 150 watt Nano Power Supply. But can this chassis really offer great cooling and a completely silent experience? Let’s find out!

As enthusiasts, we tend to look on the higher end while shopping for hardware and peripherals. I personally discovered in my Edifier M710 review that you can find good quality headphones on the budget side of things. However, was that a rare occurrence? Is it possible that I’ve just been spending way too much money on audio equipment all these years? Edifier has sent 2 more products for Proclockers to take a look at. Their H640P headphones and their P185 ear buds. As somewhat of an audiophile, I love testing new audio equipment. So let’s take a look and see how they held up. I’d like to that the good people at Edifier for again allowing me to test their products. Now let’s take a look, or should I say a listen.

Cougar DeathFire

Last week, we took a look at the Cougar MX310 chassis which we gave it our best value award. It is a great entry-level gaming chassis. Building a gaming setup on a tight budget doesn't have to be limited on the cheapest plain-looking hardware. It also pays to find something that gives great value for your money. If you are looking for a good set of peripherals that doesn't break the bank and still get the cool gaming looks, the Cougar DeathFire Gaming Gear Combo offers just that! Follow us today as we check it out!
