Here a roundup of today's reviews and articles, including CM Sentinel Advance II Mouse and RX Pad, NZXT HALE82 N 650 W Power Supply Review, and Silent Dream de luxe
If you enjoyed the Sentinel Advance and are looking to replace it, this probably isn't for you - you probably won't notice too much of an "upgrade." However, if you've never experienced any CM Storm Sentinel, then this wouldn't be a bad starting point. In the end, it's a pretty nice mouse, but I wouldn't call it much more than its mother - the Sentinel Advance - the II is really just marketing at its finest.
NZXT is releasing today a new power supply series, the HALE82 N, comprised of three models: 550 W, 650 W, and 750 W – all with the 80 Plus Bronze certification. The main external difference between the "N" and the regular HALE82 series is that the "N" line-up doesn't have a modular cabling system. Internally, the original HALE82 uses a DC-DC design in its secondary, while the "N" version uses a regular design with Schottky rectifiers, which result in it costing less than the original HALE82.
