KitGuru: Phanteks Eclipse G360A Review

The new Phanteks Eclipse G360A replaces the Eclipse P360A, which is a tough proposition as we like and admire the P360A. The biggest change is that the case has been opened out so it can accommodate a 360mm radiator in the front or the roof, along with seven 120mm fans. To add to the fun it's also pretty darned cheap.

KitGuru: PCSpecialist Odin i7 Ti Air Review (12700K/3070 Ti)

PCSpecialist (PCS) is well known in the United Kingdom for producing some of the finest custom PC builds targeting the enthusiast audience. We have reviewed many of their builds over the years and have been generally impressed with their attention to detail and competitive pricing, as well as their consistency in selecting a balanced component configuration which work well together. This time PCS told us they wanted to focus on a sub-£2k build that worked well for gaming at 1440p. This system comprises an Intel Core i7-12700K, RTX 3070 Ti, 32GB of DDR4 memory, along with a 1TB SSD and 2TB hard drive.

KitGuru: MSI Katana GF66 (i7-12700H / RTX 3060) Gaming Laptop Review

Sporting an RTX 3060 and Intel’s new Core i7-12700H processor, it may come as a surprise to see the MSI Katana GF66 priced at £1399 in the UK. In fact, the GPU and CPU combination – coupled with 16GB of DDR4 memory, a 1TB SSD, and a 240Hz 1080p display – make this laptop seem like an intriguing asking price of just under fourteen-hundred Great British Pounds. But how do MSI’s overall design and connectivity choices stack up? And does the blend of hardware perform inside this 15.6”-class chassis? Let's take a closer look.

KitGuru: AOC AGON AG275QXL Review – The League of Legends Monitor

It's not every day that we review something which can truly be described as ‘unique'. Today is one of those days, however, as we are checking out the AOC AGON AG275QXL – the first gaming monitor designed for League of Legends fans. The League inspiration is clear to see, as it stretches from the monitor's branding, to the design, RGB lighting and more. But is the underlying screen any good, and can it justify the £400 asking price?

Neowin: The Doogee S98 Pro is a rugged smartphone with Thermal and Night Vision

Doogee sent me the S98 Pro with its giant 6000 mAh battery to put it through its paces. The company is well known for rugged devices and we've tested a few, so how does this one hold up?

KitGuru: NZXT N7 Z690 Review

NZXT has just launched two Intel Z690 motherboards; a budget N5 model priced just over £200 alongside the N7 which retails for £270, meaning that this review carries higher expectations. The underlying ASRock motherboard uses DrMOS VRMs and supports DDR4 memory, so our expectations are not too high – but let's take a closer look in this review.

KitGuru: NZXT N5 Z690 Review

There is an outside chance that you are unaware that NZXT sells motherboards, in which case you might find our previous N7 Z590 review useful so do please take a look. The main appeal of NZXT motherboards is that they look immaculate inside NZXT cases such as the H7 Flow, however here at KitGuru we also demand features and performance. Did the NZXT N5 Z690 really make me smile or is that a grimace of pain?
