Swiftech KOMODO R9 Fury ECO

The KOMODO R9 FuryX ECO features the same full PCB coverage design as the rest of the KOMODO series. The water channels have been optimized for optimum flow rate and better thermal performance. A precision CNC machined copper base plate is plated with chrome versus the more commonly used nickel plating. The housing is precision CNC machined out of clear Acrylic. An optional backplate is also available. If all that didn’t sound attractive enough, Swiftech has taken it even a step further and install the thermal pads at the factory to make installation as easy as possible.

Bitfenix Nova

Today we’re going to be looking at the BitFenix Nova – a budget oriented case that is aimed at evolving the definition of inexpensive design. Having a closed off front panel, with only one optical drive, it retains a sleek look, that continues along the top of the case as well. A large side window allows you to view your creation, and is not typically seen on most budget oriented cases. With support for Mini-ITX, Micro ATX, and full sized ATX boards – the diversity of motherboard options in this case is not bad either.

Over the years, I have spent more money on audio accessories for my gaming setup than I have processors for said setups. This is a testament to how much value I place on high-quality audio when gaming, working, or just surfing the web. It’s no secret that a headset with a very dynamic audio profile will not only make gaming more enjoyable, but will actually improve gameplay in genres like first-person shooters. This is because in FPS gaming, hearing what side the gunshot came from, or being able to hear an opponent's footsteps when PvPing gives you an advantage in finding your enemy. In this review I am going to be taking an in-depth look at Patriot Memory’s new Viper V360 7.1 Virtual Surround Headset.
