Lancool has added a new mid-tower PC case to their Dragon Lord Series – the PC-K56N.

Cooler Master Storm SF-19 Laptop Cooler

If you use a laptop as your only games machine (as I now do) you’ll already know how difficult it is to keep the CPU and graphics card cool inside a cramped case. Finding a decent laptop cooler is an essential if you want to keep your machine stable. I invested in a Canyon laptop cooler a few months ago, which has proven to be reasonably effective, but I recently discovered the Cooler Master SF-19 (thanks for the tip, Johnny!)...

High Speed My Book With USB 3.0 Drive

One of the best bits of hardware I’ve bought recently has been a My Book World Edition network hard drive. Why so good? Because it’s got loads of space (1Tb, although you can buy it with 2TB), was really easy to setup and offers fast transfer speeds because it plugs into my router and works as a proper network drive. I chose a network drive because I didn’t like the idea of waiting to transfer enormous files over a...

Noctua NF-S12 Case Fan Review

In order to quiet down the noise coming from my Antec Sonata II I decided to invest in a new case fan. After some time checking various reviews I picked a Noctua NF-S12 and ordered it from Overclockers (at the same time as a new Corsair HX520W power supply and an Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro CPU cooler). According to the marketing blurb the Noctua NF-S12 uses a special blade geometry to reduce noise output and claims to be 10% quieter...

Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro

A shiny new Arctic Freezer 7 Pro CPU fan arrived today, to help keep my Intel Core 2 E6300 a bit cooler than the stock Intel fan can manage. The Freezer 7 Pro was ordered from Overclockers at a price of £18.79. I chose the cooler partly because of its reasonable price and partly on the recommendation of the forum users at Overclockers. In the box you get the cooler, some basic instructions on how to fit it and an Arctic Cooling...
