ASUS Z170 ROG Maximus VIII Extreme Motherboard Review: An Impressive Platform For Skylake
The Asus Z170 ROG Maximus VIII Extreme motherboard is the latest in Asus' flagship line of enthusiast-class motherboards for gamers. It’s a top-end premium solution with a dizzying array of tuning options to supercharge your next build and tweak overall performance in games and lots of other applications.

The Asus Z170 ROG Maximus VIII Extreme is not for the faint of heart or those light on funds.

Case Mod Friday: Mad Scientist
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Oz Modz's "Mad Scientist" build. Here is what he had to say about it, "I really wanted to build a PC that has multiple looks and that has a lot going on with liquid, air and temperature changes. I have used a thermal reactive paint internally that when warm reveals a whole new level of detail! Next week I'll be doing a in build summary and work log video going over some of these great features. If you cant wait until then ill be bringing it down to display with Cooler Master at tomorrows COG event in Sydney as well as GGF in Brisbane later in the month."

Complete with RGB lighting and the best possible sensor the G900 is the full package...

Since its release back in mid-2014 the Logitech G502 Proteus Core has found itself permanently attached to my gaming rig. By now I have a pretty good idea of just how good it is, having run the thing around my mouse pad for 2 years. I try to tell myself I don’t have time for computer games but obviously that hasn’t been working, just last week I was forced to replace the feet of my G502, so its got some miles on the clock.

OCZ Trion 150 480GB Solid State Drive Review
Whenever I go to university, I park my car at a location about eight minutes' walk away from the engineering building. Now, eight minutes of walking is not too far away, but if you ask me what the best way to get from the engineering building to my car is, I would have to say it is to take the bus. Why? Because if I take the bus, I am statistically going to be faster most of the time, or at least tie the normal walking pace at worst. Although it takes two minutes to talk to the bus stop, a bus comes every two minutes on average (Any bus from that stop will work), with a maximum wait time of four minutes. It takes the bus about two minutes to get to the parking lot. This makes the average traveling time using the bus six minutes, including the wait time, with a maximum of eight minutes and minimum of four minutes. In other words, even if maximum wait time occurs, I have lost nothing -- yet any time a bus comes before the four minute mark, I have gained everything. As you can see here, an understanding of parameters and sufficient real life statistics allow us to apply elements of optimization theory to make our lives better with better decisions. In September last year, I reviewed the OCZ Trion 100 480GB, a value oriented SSD that was not bad in read performance, but definitely suffered when it came to write speed. Fast forward half a year or so, OCZ shook up a few things, and came up with the Trion 150. The updated model features new 15nm TLC NAND flash memory as well as firmware updates to give it a boost in performance, while keeping things chugging along at a rather competitive $140 at press time. The Trion 150 does not promise to break any speed records, but it does promise to be a venerable alternative to a moderately sized hard drive. Will these changes in parameters impress us with its statistics to make a purchase decision? We benchmarked one to find out.

Samsung Portable SSD T3 – good things still come in small packages
At first glance not much has changed. The T3 is slightly bigger and heavier and comes with a USB3.1-connector instead of USB3.0. It also now comes with a 2 TB option compared to the max size of 1 TB with the T1. Speed-wise we get the same “up to 450 MB/sec” speed as the T1.
