TechPowerUp: HYTE Y40 Review

The Y40 is the first true mainstream Mid-Tower chassis from HYTE, constructed with the same design DNA as its bigger sibling the Y60, while offering the same unique features and functions in a more compact envelope and at a lower cost of entry. Can the Y40 further establish the young brand as a force to be reckoned with?

The Guru of 3D: SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Headset review

Asus ROG has a broad range of PC components and peripherals. That included the headsets; at the moment, there are 29 models available (so there’s plenty to choose from) on the manufacturer’s website. Also, we had an opportunity to check some of the models in the past, like the Asus Strix Fusion Wireless (in 2019) or the Asus Strix Fusion 700 – RGB (in 2018). Today we’re checking the new Delta family member (introduced in 2018) - the Delta S Wireless headset, which was announced in June ’22.

There are a lot of great-looking memory kits out there, with wild designs and crazy amounts of bright RGB lighting and a whole host of colours to choose from. Oh, and then theres a wide range of speeds and capacities too, obviously.

LanOC Reviews: Anker 733 Power Bank (GaNPrime PowerCore 65W)

Just last week in the middle of the night we had a train derailment about a block up the road from my house which took out the power for a day. While I had a few lights I could run, I let all of my UPS’s run down not knowing it would be a long outage. I ended up being not prepared at all to keep my mobile devices charged up. I ran my phone down not being able to sleep watching videos so in the morning without power I couldn’t charge it. I was able to charge it in the car as well as my drone which even with three batteries was also completely dead. But it left me wondering what I could do differently. The typical USB battery backup is nice but I’m the worst at keeping them plugged in. I came across an option from Anker that I thought might help me though, their 733 Power Bank (GaNPrime PowerCore 65W). It is essentially a three-port 65-watt USB adapter but with a battery built in as well and the idea for me at least is that I would keep it plugged in using it as a charger and have something fully charged and ready to go if the power goes out. Today I’m going to check it out and see if it will fit the bill, so let's dive in!

Anandtech: The FSP Hydro PTM X Pro 1000W ATX 3.0 PSU Review: Premium Platinum Power

Today were taking a look at the Hydro PTM X Pro 1000W ATX 3.0, FSP’s latest ATX 3.0-compliant unit. FSP released one of the first ATX 3.0 units in the market, the Hydro G Pro series, which we took a look at a couple of months ago. In comparison to that power supply, the PTM X Pro series is aimed at system builders seeking a higher level of performance, with the primary discernible difference being the 80 Plus Platinum efficiency certification. In order to get there, FSP had to build a platform with even better power regulation, giving the Hydro PTM X Pro a level of electrical excellence that few PSUs can match.
