Video Review #971: SilverStone SG04 SFF Case

The SilverStone Sugo SG04 SFF Case is one of the best Small Form Factor cases on the market. It's really meant for LAN parties because it has a huge handle, great styling, excellent air circulation, fits large videos, long PSUs and so much more. The only limiting factor to this case is the cooler height. Watch the video to find out more.


Video Review #972: Nexus NX-8060 600W Modular Silent Power Supply

The Nexus 80 Plus line of power supplies are available in wattages ranging from 400 to 600. These PSUs have enough power for most mid-range computer systems. I'm looking at the new and improved quieter Nexus NX-8060 600W Modular Silent Power Supply model today. This model is now a little quieter than their 500W and 7.5 dBA quieter than the old 600W version. So it's an excellent choice for a Multi Media HTPC build because it's virtually silent but still provides ample wattage. Watch the video to find out more.

Video Review #979: Antec SG850 850W Power Supply

The Antec signature line of power supplies are currently available in two wattages 650 and 850. I'm looking at the 850W model. First off, this PSU is 80+ bronze certified as well as NVIDIA SLI certified. There are plenty of leads and comes with a quiet 80mm PWM fan. If your looking for a quality power for your hardware gaming rig you should definitely check it out. The Antec SG850 850W Power Supply is one of the best I've ever tested. Although all the leads are not modular and it doesn't have a single +12V rail. Watch the video to find out more.


Video Review #981: SilverStone Raven Gaming Mouse

The SilverStone Raven Gaming Mouse is fairly large so it might not fit smaller hands and it's. It has bold styling and high-strength plastic with carbon fiber surface. There are 11 buttons, including scroll wheels. On the top here's the left click, middle click, right click, middle click, scroll wheel, left scroll, right and left scroll. Also at the top in a small 128 x 32 OLED which shows an animated raven logo and the the DPI settings. While I like this mouse I just can't get used to the flip 3D wheel and DPI switch because I keep hitting it when I move the mouse around.
