Introducing CableMod

Introducing CableMod Premium Cables Turn PC Systems Into Works of Art (December 19, 2014) – For years, outfitting a PC with custom cables has been a time-consuming and expensive endeavor. Modders have had to either do it themselves, spending hours upon hours sleeving their power supply cables individually, or spend hundreds of dollars on expensive cable sleeving services. Alternatively, they could choose sleeved cable extensions, but would have to put up with increased cable clutter due to physically longer cables. What if there was a better way? Introducing CableMod® – the first brand dedicated to designing and producing the very best internal PC cables on the market. Developed with input from top modders from around the world, CableMod cables bring premium quality and aesthetics to the next level. CableMod cables begin with ModFlex™, a premium cable sleeving that brings with it a slew of advantages over traditional sleeving. This sleeve is constructed with ultra-fine fibers that are many times softer than nylon sleeving, making it much easier to route behind motherboard trays and around components. The super dense weave means that wires underneath are completely invisible, making sure that ugly bare wires are hidden from sight. Best of all, this sleeve is developed to be thinner than competing cloth braiding, which makes it possible for CableMod cables to forgo the use of unsightly heatshrink all together. In fact, CableMod cables are 100% heatshrink-free,...

Cougar 600M Gaming Mouse

Introduction: When it comes to sports, many of us are competitive. Whether it is Baseball, Ice Hockey, Racing, or whatever sport that you’re truly passionate about, one thing that is important when competing is not only being good at what you do, but also being better than the rest. Having the right equipment plays an important role and is sometimes crucial to help get into that winner’s circle. The right equipment can help take you from being a good competitor to a winner. This is also true when gaming on the PC because without great equipment to assist you, like a good gaming mouse and mechanical keyboard, you may end up as just another player. If you want recognition as a great player, and a winner, like most professional gamers, you are not likely to get there on skills alone. Therefore, this is where you turn to the latest technology and gear, to give yourself that extra edge to frag your opponents.   Today we have the pleasure of bringing you a device that might be just such an edge: The Cougar 600M Gaming Mouse. The 600M is COUGAR’s second attempt at producing another award-winning mouse following their acclaimed award-winning 700M. The Cougar 600M gaming mouse has been specially designed to suit gamers with a claw grip, but palm and fingertip grip users will find it very comfortable too. The COUGAR 600M has been designed with a clear objective to offer gamers a mouse with state of the art technology, plus all the features and software necess...
