11 AC2200-3200 routers review: ACs with muscle
A while back, we did a comprehensive test of affordable 802.11ac AC1900 routers, but obviously, we can’t just single out one price class, so today we present our findings on the top of the line routers. We tested 11 models with WiFi speeds between 2200 and 3200 Mbit/s to find out what kind of performance you should expect from them.

We have a relatively new test setup on which we have only tested the 13 AC1900 routers so far (you can find the test here).

Arctic P533 PENTA Gaming Headset Review
Arctic originally hit the scene as Arctic Cooling back in 2001. The original goal was to design and manufacturer quiet PC cooling components and such they were stared. Fast forward to 2018 and Arctic has a nice arsenal of products that include cooling, accessories and even sound. Today we will be taking a look at their P533 headset and they have been kind enough to send us the PENTA Sports version. PENTA Sports is a professional gaming team and they have helped Arctic design this headset in aid to make sure it has all the features that gamers need. The P533 headset does also come in a couple of other colours for those who may not be a fan of the PENTA design.

The P533 features 40mm neodymium drivers to offer strong bass and clear treble. Alongside the internal components, Arctic has also used some top-grade components for the external side of things as well. So, not only does the P533 headset look and sounds good, it is comfortable and can be used in a couple of different situations. From mobile gaming to PC gaming, Arctic has done a good job at designing this headset to be compatible and easily used with multiple devices. Enough of all that though, let’s get into the closer look and see these up close and personal!

ASUS ROG Fusion 500 Headset Review
With ASUS Republic of Gamers focusing more and more on the peripheral side of things, it is no surprise to see a new line of headsets emerge from the company. The Fusion series is comprised of three different models – the 300, the 500 and the 700. Today we are taking a look at the 500, complete with intuitive on-ear touch controls, RGB lighting and virtual 7.1 surround sound.

AZIO MK MAC BT Keyboard Review
The AZIO MK MAC BT is a wireless, full-size mechanical keyboard that was designed for MacOS. We take a look at it with a Windows system and examine how well it works in a market starved for such options. Featuring a white color scheme, dedicated wrist rest, thick ABS case and keycaps, a sub-$100 price point, and a twist with the battery used, this is a keyboard review that is well worth your time.

Corsair AX1600i (1,600W) Review
World's best consumer PSU? Corsair has debuted what it describes as the company's most efficient and feature-rich power supply ever. That PSU is the AX1600i, available for $499 (£409). Such an outlay is considerable, of course, but so is the technology, according to Corsair, so let's take a look.

Outwardly, the AX1600i, which replaces the $450 AX1500i as head honcho, is typical Corsair in appearance. Construction is solid and the supply offers interchangeable magnetic labels - blue and red - for better colour coordination in your build.

At 200mm deep, it will fit into practically all mid-tower chassis, but given its capacity and intended market, we expect it to find a home in a full-tower box. Actually, it is 20mm shorter than the AX1500i, and a 140mm fluid dynamic fan is carried over from that model.

Gigabyte Radeon RX Vega 64 Gaming OC 8G Review
If there were enough Vega GPUs to go around, Gigabyte's Radeon RX Vega 64 OC 8G would probably be great for high-end performance at a reasonable price. Unfortunately, a lack of availability means you probably won't be able to find one.

Havit HV-MS764 Vertical Grip Ergonomic Mouse Review
You don’t get to see products and reviews with such mouse designs except a selected few. The vertical grip ergonomic mice are meant to reduce stress in your hands caused when you’re using the traditional mouse during extended use. Such discomfort eventually leads to injury-like pain, eventually leading to carpal tunnel syndrome. Because of the almost vertical grip design of the mouse, it is more natural of an end user.

Havit made an ergonomic mouse with a relaxed price tag of $27.99, cheaper than many gaming mice out there. The not so very ergonomically named ‘HV-MS764’ mouse also has variable DPI and a string of RGB lighting. No fancy controls. No gimmicky functions. Simple ergonomic mouse with RGB lighting.

Lenovo Yoga 920 Review: An Elegant, Powerful 2-In-1 Ultrabook
When Lenovo launched the Yoga 910, it was beautifully styled, powerful enough for most mobile users, and it offered reasonably good battery life. However, the public reception of the 2-in-1 convertible was a bit mixed and perhaps not quite what the company had hoped for. Some critics took issue with the Yoga 910's thermal characteristics, fan noise, and its awkwardly-placed upward-facing web cam. However, Lenovo took this feedback into consideration and developed the new Yoga 920 we'll be showing you here. From the outside, the Yoga 910 and 920 look similar at first glance, but there are a multitude of significant updates that improve the machine in a number of ways...

Logitech MX Sound 2.0 Computer Speakers Review
Logitech has been making speakers for computers for a very long time. I’ve owned a handful of sets over the years and have always been satisfied with their performance. Logitech recently sent us over their MX Sound 2.0 Computer Speakers, which are part of the company’s premium computer accessory line which the Craft Wireless Keyboard we recently reviewed is also part of. As the name states this is a 2.0 sound system, so you have two very stylish circular speakers with advanced drivers delivering 24 watts of peak power (12 watt RMS). On top of being able to connect these to your PC these are also Bluetooth speakers so you can easily connect a mobile device or tablet. Let’s take these speakers for a test drive and see what they can do!

NZXT H400i Micro-ATX PC Case Review
NZXT is a well-known PC case manufacturer and while the offer some other products, PC cases have been their bread and butter for years. NZXT has always pushed the boundaries of innovation and continues to do so to this day. Not being afraid to shy from the norm has worked well for NZXT over the years and they have some of the most sought after cases for PC gamers and enthusiasts alike. From their Phantom range of cases which were there first to catch my eye, up to their newer H440 and S340 all the way to today’s offer, the H400i, NZXT has an extensive catalogue of cases! If for some odd reason you’ve never really checked them out, I would suggest you go have a look at what they offer. While not everything is for everyone, NZXT cases offer great functionality alongside unique looks and innovative technology.

Today I am looking the H400i which is designed for M-ATX motherboards. The H400i features a tempered glass side panel and on first look, it seems similar to the S340 cases though there are some notable differences, even in the image on the packaging. Alongside tempered glass, the H400i also feature RGB LEDs which are currently all the rage. Even though this case is not monstrous, it still has plenty of room for an AIO and some pretty impressive hardware! There is plenty of room for longer graphics cards up to 411mm in length, enough room for CPU coolers up to 164mm tall and plenty more stuff!

Professional overclocker demonstrates how to cheat in 3DMark TimeSpy
Cheating in synthetic benchmarks Ronaldo Buassali, who is a professional overclocker working for GALAX, published a video demonstrating how to conceal driver settings modifications and as a result, reach higher scores. The issue does not only apply to 3DMark software, but to many other benchmarks which are used in HWBOT competition. This raises a concern that some of the world records could've been achieved using this trick. Long story short, it is possible to change driver settings right before the benchmark starts. Doing it earlier would result in an unvalidated score.

Razer Phone Revisited – In-depth Camera Analysis
In our initial review of the Razer Phone (HERE (https://goo.gl/MP6aBg) ), we mentioned there was room for improvement when it came to the camera’s software. Razer listened, and last month the company rolled out a big update to improve shutter speed, add the ability to easily switch between lenses and improve overall performance. With that in mind, we thought it high-time we revisited the phone to give its camera and software a proper analysis.
