ASUS ROG Strix Fusion 500 Headset

In the PC gaming world, you really only have two ways to get information from the PC to you; your eyes and your ears. Everyone wants a good gaming monitor and a powerful GPU, but the unsung hero of feedback is audio. Those audio cues tell you if an enemy is approaching if you’ve triggered an alarm, or even sets the mood for that area of a game. If you play anything multiplayer with your friends or squad, you’ll also need a microphone. With as important as audio is to your complete experience, so many people overlook it and ASUS wants to change that. With some of the best components on the market and unique features such as squad synchronized RGB lighting, ASUS has given the lowly headset the ROG flair.

Peripherals are subjective, you like what you like and leave the rest for someone else right? ASUS is trying to win you over with compelling entries in the highly addictive ROG family. The ROG Gladius II Origin Mouse has taken the modular Gladius mouse and given it an RGB facelift to compliment the socketed Omron Switches and detachable cords. The ROG Scabbard masquerades as a mousepad, but it’s actually a premium gaming surface designed to protect your entire desk as well as provide the accurate base for your mouse to glide on. Is it enough to win you over or did they have you at first sight?

Corsair CRYSTAL 280X RGB Case

One trend in the PC world the last few years following the push for more efficient components is to make things smaller. We’ve seen an impressive lineup of ITX and MicroATX boards from nearly all of the vendors out there extending from entry level up through the High-End Desk-Top series. The problem with high powered systems is the need to cool them, no matter what size the board. Typically, if you want to go with a smaller system, you have to compromise on cooling and typically aesthetics as well or stay with a larger case which sort of defeats the point of moving to a smaller board, to begin with. Corsair has the solution with the new Crystal Series 280X cases. Designed to give a small ITX or MicroATX build full-sized cooling support in a small package while looking amazing.

Intel Optane Memory Data Drive Acceleration

When Intel’s 3D XPoint technology hit the market as Intel Optane Technology, it could do wonderful things to your computer, but only in the right configuration. To take advantage, you had to couple an Optane module to a SATA based drive. Not long after, larger drives big enough to hold your entire system became available, but only for the deeper-pocketed enthusiasts. Many users couple a smaller PCIe storage drive with the OS to a large mechanical Hard Drive for storage and Intel has now opened up Optane Acceleration to kick your data drive into high gear as well. Those smaller 32 and 64GB Optane modules can now be put to good use, and we’ll be looking at how this typical SSD+HDD configuration can benefit from Intel Optane Acceleration Technology.

ASUS ROG Strix Flare Keyboard

Peripherals are something every gamer drools over but rarely changes. Once you are used to something you use daily, it's hard to break away from that familiarity and muscle memory you’ve earned. Keyboards have been around longer than computers, and not much has really changed, so what does it take to motivate someone to take a leap of faith on new input devices? A few years ago, you might have been able to say ‘mechanical switches’ or ‘backlighting’ but it seems even the budget devices have that too. Unless yours has died and you just plain need a new one, it’s most likely going to be a combination of things you are looking for. Does ASUS have the right combination to win you over?
