KitGuru: Thermaltake The Tower 500 Review

We have previously reviewed Thermaltake's The Tower 100, which is a quirky Mini-ITX case, so we felt fully prepared to work with The Tower 500 which is bigger and bolder in every respect. At least we thought we were prepared… As it turns out, the fan/radiator installation system used in The Tower 500 is unusual so our preparation for the video involved a certain amount of what-the-hecking before we were ready to give our KitGuru audience the straight dope.

KitGuru: MSI Crosshair 15 R6E Laptop Review (Core i7-12700H / RTX 3070)

In this review, we are examining the MSI Crosshair 15 R6E Rainbow Six Extraction edition. Hardware comes in the form of an Intel Core i7-12700H processor, an RTX 3070 Laptop GPU, 32GB of DDR4 memory, a 1TB SSD, and – arguably the star of the show – a 15.6” 2560×1440 165Hz IPS-level display. With a pretty hefty price tag of £2000 currently, but £2199 MSRP, let's take a closer look at what MSI offers for that money.

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?

Tom's Hardware: MSI MAG B660 Tomahawk WIFI Review: A Tempting Tomahawk

MSI’s B660 Tomahawk is a reasonably priced and well-equipped sub-$200 motherboard.

ServeTheHome: Cheapest 2.5GbE 8-port Switch TP-Link TL-SH1008 Review

In our TP-Link TL-SH1008 review, we see if the cheapest ($119) 8-port 2.5GbE switch that we could find is any good, or if it is just cheap

KitGuru: Synology RT6600ax AX6600 Wireless Router Review

WiFi 6 has been out in the wild for a few years now, and has finally become a standard feature on notebooks. Previously it was a luxury if you could afford it, but now you will be risking obsolescence by not going for WiFi 6. Luckily, brands like Synology that know how to provide all the features you need for a keen price, have options for you. The RT6600ax is a tri-band WiFi 6 router, but it costs less than £300.
