Which PC Parts You Can Safely Buy Used?

Introduction Building yourself a PC is often considered expensive but can you save money with used parts? PCs have a number of components and some of them are safer to buy second-hand, but which ones? Let’s find out.


Dream Machines DM1 FPS Gaming Mouse Review


DM1 FPS On the Surface The first thing you’ll notice about the DM1 FPS is that there is no spectacle. Nothing inherently screams, “Look at me! I’m clearly for hardcore gamers.” Gaming mice scarcely fit in a professional environment. Underneath that shell, however, is a suspiciously well performing mouse.


 

NZXT E850 Digital Monitoring PSU Review


It’s Been a Long Time NZXT used to be a familiar name in the PSU world. Even though the company was, and still is known for cases, the Hale series stirred up some attention. That was quite a few years ago however, so seeing the new E850 come to market was a decent surprise. The unit has some strong bragging rights, with Seasonic as the OEM, and a new feature that feels quite unique to the industry. First, a quick word from NZXT, then we’ll move right over to the unit.


 

NZXT HUE 2 Strives for RGB Perfection

RGB Elegance Crazy amounts of colorful lighting can look impressive. It also tends to lend itself to a gaudy appearance. A large reason for this is the lack of precise control of the lighting schemes. NZXT is tackling this problem head on with their latest addition of HUE 2 accessories. The goal is to allow a builder to have a plethora of lighting, while being able to expertly synchronize color schemes as well.


Ballistix Sport AT RAM Review


But Why is the RGB Gone? It seems like the only new RAM is RGB RAM. In the midst of this, Ballistix makes the bold move to release “normal” memory. The new Sport AT modules arrive with a simplistic design, while partnering with Asus TUF branding. In theory, we should be able to expect some impressive performance. We’ll find that out soon, right after a quick word from Ballistix.

Lian Li Launches Lancool One Case

Merging Classic and Modern Lian Li is one of the elegant case manufacturers. They typically use aluminum construction, but certain designs come with some hefty price tags. The other issue buyers can have with aluminum designs is that they can feel like the case is a bit boring. What’s a company to do? If you’re Lian Li, you make an amazing, innovative design. The Lancool One mixes the best of classic aluminum, and the best of modern beauty.


Swiftech Intros Drive X3 AIO CPU Coolers

The Best AIO Just Got Better! I had the opportunity to test out the Drive X2 all-in-one CPU cooler from Swiftech. It was easily one of the best liquid coolers I’d ever seen! Essentially, Swiftech created a pre-assembled custom loop. CLCs pail in comparison to what their units can offer. As expected, the company has improved the design yet again and the Drive X3 was released about a week ago. There looks to be some serious improvements on the design that will likely increase performance, but definitely increases the aesthetic quality.
