Cougar has a solid gaming chair with their Armor. It has a good level of comfort and a decent amount of features like 4D armrests. Some aesthetic materials may not hold up as well to time, but it's nothing that would effect the use of sitting for long periods.
I don’t make a habit of updating reviews or redoing a product. A reviewers life is one of commitment! On the other hand, sometimes I miss all the details of what’s going on and I end up with a second case. That’s alright though because Rosewill is having some nice promotions and being able to run through the Nighhawk 117 again was a great experience. Check out the video for a quick overview of the case again, but you can also check out our full review right here. After that, I’ll also include the details for Rosewill’s promotion which gives you some sweet savings on the case. For an additional 15% off the Nighthawk use the promo code and following link: RWTHH15 http://bit.ly/2ocSJOt Finally, I need to update my award. The issues that made me decide on a Great Hardware Aaward last time basically disappeared. Considering that and the lower pricing that doesn’t even include the promo code, the Rosewill Nighthawk 117 gets an upgrade to an Editor’s Choice Award! (I’ve missed building in full towers!)
With Ryzen 5, AMD has introduced the perfect mid-range CPUs for amazing performance at a great price. The 1600X has 6 cores and 12 threads for heavier workloads, while the 1500X will save a few dollars for raw gaming performance. Ryzen may not overclock to high frequencies, but it's still a fun platform to play with.
There is nothing inherently wrong with the mouse. We’ve been using it for decades now and with the exception of a few outlandish ergonomic mice, the overall design hasn’t changed. For average, light, infrequent use, there will be no noticeable repercussion. However, competitive gaming has greatly increased the frequency in which we move, click, and overall abuse the mouse. This has led to carpal tunnel and repetitive stress injuries, giving the active pro-gamer a severely limited career. Unfortunately, there are no ergonomic mice that can perform on a pro gaming level. Gamer and inventor Qeric Koten believes he’s found a solution. Qeric’s R.B.T. (Right ‘Bove Touch, pronounced “rabbit”) was not just developed for ergonomics, but for speed and function. The R.B.T. ‘s most important feature is the point of contact for clicking. A traditional mouse uses the distal phalanges, pads of the fingertips, to press in the left and right click. What the R.B.T. does differently is move the point of contact of clicking to the proximal phalanges, the first section of finger closest to the palm. The result is less strain on wrist ligaments (fewer muscles needed to click) and faster reaction speeds. Qeric says that this change in clicking point reduces the distance that the nervous system has to reach in order to react. In essence, shorter distance equals faster clicks. While speed is key, ergonomics remains an important part of it’s allure. The unique design hopes to ...
