Patriot Viper V570 Blackout RGB Gaming Mouse and Pad Review

Introduction It’s only a matter of time before mice evolve into sentience and begin taking over the world. I’m not talking about the rodents! There are just SO many gaming mice out there, that I’m fairly confident they’ll bring on the robot apocalypse. That said, with all of the RGB LED effects added to everything today, at least humanity will die to a brilliant rainbow of style. Also, Patriot is adding to the foray with a new gaming mouse and mouse pad under their Viper branding. I got to say, the V570 Blackout looks pretty cool, but let’s see if Patriot’s vision has any mention of AI overlords or not.

Rosewill Neon K85 RGB Mechanical Keyboard

Introduction Many a tech website will say, “once you go mechanical, you never go…back-chanical,” or something similar to that. Don’t quote me. There is, however, something to be said about moving up from brittle hinges on chicklet keys to metal parts that hold up to 50 million clicks. Rosewill, ever on the quest for best quality for the lowest price, has attempted the top tier mechanical keyboard feature: fully programmable RGB. Have they succeeded or gone the lackluster way of many budget RGB Mechanical keyboards before it? Time to take it out of the box. In case you know nothing about Rosewill: Rosewill’s mission is to consistently deliver reliable, high quality PC gaming, IT hardware and home products through leading innovation and long-lasting relationships. Rosewill Inc. was established in 2004, founded by manufacturing reliable, high-quality technology products.

Enermax MaxTytan 800W, RevoBron 700W Power Supply Review

Introduction Power Supplies are one of the most critical components in computer systems, which is why it’s so sad that they’re also one of the most easily overlooked components. Stable and clean power should be a top priority for any high end system, yet builders and companies alike tend to skimp on this critical element of PC building. Needless to say here at PureOC, we highly recommend finding a good quality PSU unit for your rig. However, performance isn’t the only thing that’s skimped on in this segment. Aesthetics have also been woefully overlooked in power supplies as well. Sure, we have fancy RGB fans on certain units, but when most cases have bottom mounted designs, it kind of defeats the purpose of making the PSU fan look shiny. In fact, the number one thing you’ll see from a PSU in most builds today is the cable connections on the motherboard and graphics cards. If that’s the case, making nicer connection cables would seem like a pretty important feature to have in modern PSUs. Enermax seems to be thinking in these directions so let’s begin looking at the units once we’ve taken a quick look at the company themselves. Lepatek Corporation an ENERMAX Company is an exclusive authorized supplier for ENERMAX and LEPA brand products for both North America and South America. Lepatek Corporation strives to provide only high quality products within the Computer Hardware & Components and Consumer Electronics market. Both m...

Lamptron RGB Lighting, Fan Controllers Review and Giveaway

Giveaway! It’s time to win something at PureOC! Lamptron has some new products and wanted us to not only review them, but host a giveaway as well. Fan controllers might seem a tad antiquated these days, but what if I told you that you could control RGB lighting without the need of extra software? Lamptron has done the unimaginable by making the CL420 fan controller that can also control the RGB lighting effects in fans and LED strips. The video explains, as well as shows, that the CL420 does an excellent job of controlling fan speed, while also giving tons of RGB LED lighting controls for both fans and strips. This is such an incredibly unique design that I have to give huge props to Lamptron for introducing it. The CM512 is a pretty standard fan controller, but it offers a solid option for users who want non-obtrusive, hardware based speed control. The biggest issues I see with these products is a slightly limited availability and a fairly steep price of over $60 for the CL420 on Amazon. Overall though, Lamptron really outdid themselves with the CL420! Use the entry form below to add entries into the giveaway and don’t forget to check out the full video for all of the review details. In order to win, you must be 18 years or older and have a valid shipping address in the contiguous 48 states of the US. Don’t forget to join or forums and ask any PC related questions you might have. Finally, we also happily award the Lamptron CL420 and CM512 the Pure Overc...
