Video Review #901: Thermaltake SwordM Case

Thermaltake SwordM Case is constructed from thick aluminum and this gives the case rigidly but it also adds weight. It's interesting to note that while the all-aluminum structures are produced through an automated process they are all fine-tuned by hand. For that reason the SwordM case is a Limited Edition product and very expensive. At the top are stylish and strong handles for maneuvering the case. The top of the case also effortlessly swings up thanks to two hydraulic rods. There is also a hydraulic rod on the left side door.

Video Review #904: Razer Piranha Headset

The Razer Piranha Headset has round soft ear cups which pivot and a fully adjustable padded headband. The microphone swings down and can be adjusted horizontally. Since this headset is made from durable materials it's designed to take LAN party abuse. The headphones have a frequency response of 18 to 20,000 Hz, an impedance of 32 Ohm and a sound pressure level of 114 dB. The microphone has a frequency response of 80 to 15,000 Hz, an impedance of 2000 Ohms, the pickup pattern is uni directional, and the sensitivity is 38dB. Watch the video to find out more and check out the bloopers at the end.

Video Review #905: Silverstone OP1200 1200W Power Supply

The Silverstone Olympia line of power supplies are available in wattages ranging from 650 to 1200. I'll be reviewing the Silverstone OP1200 1200W model which is more than enough power for even hardcore computer systems. The housing is steel and they include a very quiet 135mm fan which is recessed, but this PSU is extremely long so it might not fit in some smaller mid-tower cases. Also note that this fan is load controlled, meaning the more load on the PSU the faster the fan spins. Watch the video to find out more and check out the bloopers at the end.
