Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4-2666 Memory Review
Crucial sent us a sample of their DDR4-2666MHz 16GB Ballistix Elite RAM. Crucial Ballistix Elite is their premium memory line, with speeds ranging from 2666MHz to 3200MHz, and memory capacities from 4GB to 32GB in single to quad channel kits. Crucial is pushing the speed envelope with their line of Ballistix Elite memory kits well past the DDR4 standard of 2133MHz. In this article for Benchmark Reviews, I’m going to see if higher bandwidth memory makes a difference. Will Crucial Ballistix Elite deliver, or fall short of the mark? Let’s find out!

EVGA GTX 1080 FTW reviewed
The Geforce GTX 1080 is consumer graphics cards which belongs to the new Geforce Pascal generation. It is the right card to experience a new class of performance enhanced and VR gaming. The user can freely experiment with all the new Nvidia features, and we believe it has enough future-proof gear under the hood to drive whatever comes next.
Nvidia has introduced its reference GTX 1080 “Founders Edition” and its partners are good to go with custom designs. EVGA as one of the oldest and most experienced partners knows how to gain attention of the users. This time EVGA has two custom coolers. The first one is based on the reference blower cooler and the second comes from the new Active Cooling Xtreme 3.0 (ACX) 3.0 cooler generation. EVGA is yet to release a Classified, Kingpin, or Hydro Copper version of the GTX 1080, and we expect to see another version of ACX 3.0 cooler and one with a water cooling solution.

EVGA X99 FTW K Motherboard Review
Most of EGVA's products are no frill, hell on wheels,  performance yielding beasts. What I mean by that, is rarely do you see EVGA products with extra "features". EVGA tends to spend more time developing how to get more performance out of their products. At Computex 2016, EVGA introduced a slew new and updated products, one of which is the … Read more.

HiFiMAN Edition X Planar Magnetic Headphones
HiFiMAN's newest high-end headphone, the Edition X, bears a striking resemblance to their flagship HE-1000. It uses the same driver design without the fancy nano materials found in the $1200 more expensive HE-1000, but is, at $1799, still the second most expensive headphone in HiFiMAN's line-up.

Razer ManO'War Review
There are some gamers that love to game without wires, so up until recently, it was surprising that Razer didn't have their own offering to comepte against the likes of Corsair and SteelSeries. The Man'O War aims to fill that void. Addressing the primary concerns regarding wireless performance, Razer have put a lot of consideration into aspects such as battery life and audio lag. Razer are promising a 14 hour lifespan that is expandable to 20hours if you turn off the Chroma LED lighting. To tackle the latency issue, the Man'O War comes with its own plug-and-play compact 2.4GHz wireless dongle, ensuring quick and easy pairing and a lag free experience.

The headset itself is packed with 50mm neodymium drivers, controls on the earcups for on-the-fly audio adjustments and Chroma lighting. The Synapse software further enables virtual 7.1 surround sound.

Tesoro GRAM Spectrum RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

If a keyboard has lasted for a while, you are probably used to how it feels, and responds, so your first instinct is to go with one that you know. Tesoro is a fairly new company that is building PC hardware, and so you might not be familiar with them; as such might overlook them for the more familiar manufacturers; I know that€™s what I did when I replaced my last gaming keyboard. So when Tesoro offered their latest keyboard, the GRAM Spectrum RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, I was excited to try it out.
