Razer is one of the biggest players in keyboards and mice so they were the first on my list of manufacturers to contact when I started looking for the ultimate mousepad. After contacting Razer, the rep told me the Destructor was the one. Targeted toward everyday PC users to extreme gamers and everyone in-between the Destructor is aiming to fit the bill for anyone tired of the insensitivity of most mouse surfaces and looking for an advantage at work or at play.

If you are not familiar with Aeneon’s DDR3 modules here is a quick rundown. Aeneon makes two different lines of DDR3, the first is their ‘value’ line which has no heat spreaders and a better price point. But the second series is the one that many of us would choose as it is meant for the overclocker and gamer that wants the most out of their rig. XTune is what this line is called and sports a very clean set of heat spreaders and pretty good timings. For those that are into numbers, how does 8-8-8-15 at just 1.5 volts sound?
The Warboard looks to be the weapon you would like to take into battle with. Equipped with more keys than shells in a M16. Aimed with more programmable keys then most other keyboards on the market, the Warboard can be customized to your every command.

Aerocool is widely known for introducing the world to extra large case fans. I am sure you are familiar with the ExtremEngine case. If you don’t know it by name, maybe by description - it was one of the first to have a 25cm cooling fan on the side and 14cm at the front as an intake. Well, putting the ExtremEngine to the side, Aerocool is introducing the HorsePower line of PSUs. This power supply comes in two models, 720 watts for the modest PC builder and 1020 watt model for the extremist. When you consider that Crossfire using two 3870X2 cards can be done on a high performance 620Watt PSU you can see how much further Aerocool is trying to push things. Each unit divides the power between four different rails and boasts an Aerocool trademark a large fan. A 140mm one with blue lights.
The EliteXStream is the example of what two companies can think up when they get together. The EliteXStream is a single 12 volt rail behemoth that is sure to raise some eyebrows. The EliteXStream belongs to the crowd of people that believe all the power should be in one main 12 volt rail. This is a philosophy that we have seen for many years from PC Power and Cooling. But if you are a member of the multi-rail power supply club, OCZ has the ProXStream for you. The EliteXStream is available in to varieties, an 800 and 1k models. Each is enough to power the biggest of gaming systems. And today we will be reviewing the 800 watter for you.
