DXRacer Formula Gaming Chair Review (OH/FE57/NG)

Introduction Today we are going to be touching on a subject that we don’t hear too often when it comes to building that special gaming/workstation PC. It’s often an accessory that gets lost in a conversation about hardware and accessories, but believe it or not, many of us don’t think about how critical this piece of equipment or accessory can be. What is this you say? We call it “that office chair.” Now… when we talk about office chairs, the first thought that comes to mind is: Oh it’s that thing you sit in for hours at a time. But do we really think about how important it can be? If you really think about it, this should be a critical piece of equipment we should think about. For many of us that spend hours at a time in front of the computer, comfort and support can be very important as it helps you do the work you need to do without making you feeling achy or tired. While most standard office chairs can do the job, often times they are not the most comfortable. If you are looking for a comfortable office chair, you could spend a few hundred dollars to get one of the better brands, but it’s still just another boring office chair. How about we take an office chair, spruce it up it a bit and provide that extra support? Now that’s something that sounds interesting. Today… we are going to be looking at an office chair with a unique design and flare. We’d like to introduce to you the DXRacer Formula Gaming ...

Vardar vs. Gentle Typhoon. Is it a copy? Absolutely not!

True story of Vardar Over the last few weeks there was a lot of wind around (and through) our new Vardar fans. There were many comments made that Vardar series are just a copy of the Gentle Typhoon fans. Do they look similar? Maybe. Are they a copy? Absolutely not! We had a dream, for years, to design our own fans from the ground up optimized for liquid cooling without any compromises in performance and noise levels. Vardar fans are a result of a long and rigorous in-house development process. Members of our team had a background in industrial fan design with over 10 years of experience and that needed to be utilized. Unlike chassis fans which are built to provide high air flow, a good radiator cooling fan must generate high static pressure as well while generating least amount of audible noise. This is also the reason why Vardar ended up with the square shape – it ensures optimal performance in either pull- (suction) or push (pressure) regime without hydraulic losses. The fan itself is powered by a high quality industrial motor with double ball bearing which has actively cooled motor windings to allow better air flow and long lasting performance. We felt the need to upgrade the fan with dominantly popular PWM functionality, which stands for pulse width modulation, where the pulse is turning DC voltage on and off very fast. This allows active regulation of speed from your motherboard and better power efficiency. Gentle Typhoon was the market benchmark that we set to...

Noctua launches NH-L9x65 low-profile CPU cooler and NF-A6x25 PWM fan

Noctua launches NH-L9x65 low-profile CPU cooler and NF-A6x25 PWM fan Vienna, March 11th 2015 – Continuing its recent focus on premium grade cooling components for compact systems such as ITX based gaming or Home Theater PCs, Noctua today released its new NH-L9x65 low-profile cooler and a 4-pin PWM version of its popular NF-A6x25 60mm fan. While the latter adds PWM support for automatic speed control to the proven NF-A6x25 design, the NH-L9x65 is a taller, performance-enhanced version of Noctua’s award-winning NH-L9 low-profile coolers. “Our NH-L9 coolers have become a default choice for customers seeking premium grade quiet coolers in the sub-40mm class, but with a height of only 37mm, their performance is inevitably limited”, explains Mag. Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO), “The new NH-L9x65 provides the increased performance necessary to cool high end CPUs quietly while still offering excellent case and component compatibility.” Due to its compact heatsink and the renowned 14mm thin NF-A9x14 PWM fan, the NH-L9x65 stands only 65mm tall (the same height as low-profile expansion cards), which makes it ideal for use in compact HTPCs or Small Form Factor cases that offer limited clearance for CPU coolers. With 65 instead of 37mm height and four instead of two heatpipes, the NH-L9x65 is more powerful than its smaller siblings yet retains their 95x95mm footprint, which guarantees 100% RAM and PCIe compatibility on Intel based ITX mainboards and make...

NZXT DOKO Review

Introduction During CES 2015 this year, NZXT show-cased the DOKO PC Anywhere device. Now this is a product we are not used to seeing from NZXT. They are primarily known for their PC chassis, cooling and accessories line up. But from what we saw during the CES show, we were quite impressed with what this new product offers. One thing that came up in our conversation was why is this portable PC named DOKO? As NZXT explained to us… the word DOKO comes from the Japanese dictionary and means “Where.” So DOKO or “Where” is a device that let’s you take your PC Anywhere in your home or office. In our minds, the first thought was, it’s like the software PC Anywhere…. The NZXT DOKO pretty much does just that, but in a more simplified and easy form factor. Today, we are going to break down the DOKO device and walk with you step by step on how easy it is to use. We will also cover what its capabilities are, including its its limitations and compatibility. Before we do here’s a word from NZXT.
