NZXT Sentry Mix 2 Fan Controller and NZXT Grid

Today we are looking at a new arrival from NZXT. It is a successor to the Sentry Mix, and appropriately labeled the Sentry Mix 2.

The sliders are not just there to supply power to the six fans. They also offer up a larger connector at each end for PWM fans' connectivity as well. Also on my test bench today is another new arrival from NZXT, it’s called the NZXT Grid. This is a fan hub that sports LED lighting, and is designed not only for the NZXT family of controllers, but can also be powered by your power supply’s 4-pin Molex connection. The NZXT Grid can be attached to the back side of your MB tray, and gives you the options of installing up to ten fans in any location, thus keeping your motherboard and your build free from any...



MSI Ships GE40, the New Standard in High Performance Portable Gaming

City of Industry, Calif. – June 13, 2012 – MSI Computer Corp, leading manufacturer of computer hardware products and solutions, announces the availability of the GE40, the perfect combination of ultrabook portability and deadly gaming capability.  Armed with state of the art components, including an Intel® Haswell Core i7 processor and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 760M, the GE40 weighs only 4.4 lbs. and measures less than 1-inch thick, making it the ideal choice for gamers seeking superior performance and mobility.  The GE40 takes full advantage of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 760M performance by adding a Matrix display that allows users to output to 3 displays simultaneously (including the native notebook display). To complement the GE40’s superior graphics, MSI incorporated Sound Blaster Cinema and Audio Boost, two technologies that deliver amazing surround sound with realistic and immersive sound clarity.  “The GE40 was designed for mobile gamers seeking the best in gaming performance but not wanting to carry around larger laptops,” said Andy Tung, vice president of sales for MSI US. “Even though the GE40 is exceptionally light and nimble, it is still packed with high-performance components worthy of a desktop replacement unit.”  The GE40 comes in a full aluminum body featuring a psychedelic dragon eye backlit design and is available in two configurations: 750GB HDD or 125GB mSATA SSD plus a 750GB HDD for increased performance. It also comes with 8GB of DDR3 memo...
