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...

Raijintek Paean Bench Chassis Review

Introduction Should I be ashamed of myself as a reviewer? In a general sense, I get pretty excited about most of the new computer component releases I see. In comparison to my levels of excitement though, I tend to get more excited about the companies with smaller brand recognition than I do about the really big names. Sure, I should probably live for nothing else than to get my hands on Volta or Vega, but right now I can’t help being really excited about what I’m seeing from Raijintek. They have multiple cooling and chassis components being released that are looking absolutely phenomenal! Today however, we will need to take a look at just one of their newer designs in the Paean Bench Chassis. The name is actually a word that defines a song of triumph or praise, but the pronunciation may seem a bit….different, for American vernacular. (I’ll let you look it up.) Raijintek is offering something rather unique here, since the design has all the earmarks of a good bench case, but all of the class of a quality open frame case. Whether it stands out as a successful design is yet to be seen, but we can take a quick look at who Raijintek is and what motivates their designs.

iBuyPower Element PC Review: Intel i7-7900X & Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti

Introduction Most of the readers that will frequent a hardware review site will swear by the experience of building their own custom PC. Price, performance and customization are all highlights we love to point out, but sometimes we like to overlook the problems like compatibility, DOAs, and tons of troubleshooting. If you’re a troubleshooter by nature, then building a PC is the perfect way to appeal to that need for figuring out problems. If you aren’t then the idea of building your own gaming PC is probably a nightmare! So what are gamers supposed to do if they want performance on a custom built level, but are afraid to dive into putting their own components together? The answer that you shouldn’t go to is to buy a Dell. Perhaps the real answer is to look at a company like iBuyPower. They have custom built PCs that are pre-assembled and pre-configured so that a buyer has little to worry about on their end. The only question is if the company is offering a worthwhile system to spend your hard-earned cash on. We’ll find out soon how this variant of the iBuyPower Element stacks up, but first let’s look at a statement from the company on their values. iBUYPOWER symbolizes several key beliefs: unity, strength, ambition, and perseverance. These are fundamental attributes of life inside and outside of gaming. You need them all to win. Leading the pack, iBUYPOWER is gaming, defined.Since 1999, iBUYPOWER has been delivering on its promise to build the...

Azza Storm 6000W Chassis Review

Introduction Please give a huge welcome to our new reviewer, Brendan Varik at PureOC! You can welcome him at the forum post for this review. AZZA is a brand that I suspect not too many of you are familiar with. They formed way back in 1996 with three main business philosophies: innovation, performance and growth. When they launched, they were primarily in the motherboard manufacturing business, and was one of the top ten leading suppliers in the 90’s. Today, however, is a slightly different story in the sense that they create mainly gaming cases and are looking to offer you some bang for your buck. In 2009, they were able to restructure and then distribute their products under the AZZA trademark that we see today. They no longer sell motherboards, but instead offer a plethora of computer accessories and components; ranging from cases to monitors, they’ve surely got something for you. Let’s get on with the meat of this review, and discuss what they sent over for us to look at. It is of course, as you probably already guessed by the title of this review, the Storm 6000 gaming chassis. Oh, and it’s the white variant of the two, because (surely) everyone loves the black and white themes that you can create with modern hardware. You can of course opt for the black version instead, which you can tell apart in the naming scheme by it either being the 6000W or 6000B SKU.   Are you looking for a case with eight expansion slots? Perhaps a possibility of vertically mount...

FSP Windale 6 CPU Cooler Review

Introduction FSP gave us something new to look at with their CMT210 Chassis, but they included a CPU cooler to review as well. The CMT210 was excellent in addressing tiny details that can cause frustration for someone, especially if it’s a first time PC build. Now we have the Windale 6 to look at and while we’ll be looking at how easily the cooler installs, cooling performance will be an integral point to look at as well. We also won’t forget aesthetics. As always, we’ll get to Windale soon enough, but first let’s look at the company statement again from FSP! Since 1993, based on its professional R&D expertise, enormous production capacity and high Quality Assurance, FSP has achieved an important position in the challenging IT industry. To strengthen the brand image and to provide better service to our customers, FSP built its own brand in 2003. FSP has a good understanding of customer needs, which includes providing products of high quality and reliability, after-sales service and continuous development of new products. It can be prominently seen in such as our products like highly efficient Aurum series and the fanless Zen series. As a result, innovation and high quality are the most important advantages of FSP. In the future, FSP will continue innovating new technology to meet customers’ needs with its professional R&D team and after-sales service. To provide highly efficient and innovative products for all families and enrich...
