LanOC Reviews: Fractal Ridge

For those of you who have been around for a while, you will most likely know that I have had a thing for small form factor builds going back before small form factor builds were a thing. We did our Lunchbox build series starting 14 years ago when we were building in a Shuttle. The options for compact builds with video cards have improved significantly over the years and a few companies have played big roles in that including Fractal with their Node 202 which helped bring the “console” form factor into the mainstream with a reasonably priced case option. Well, the Fractal Ridge is the first time that Fractal has been back to that form factor and while I am late to the party, I’m excited to see what they have changed. Especially now with PCIe 4.0 risers being available which address compatibility issues that some people ran into. So let's dive into the Ridge and see what it is all about and build a system in it to get the full experience.

eTeknix: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Halo Black CPU Cooler Review

Cooler Master has been making PC cases and coolers for longer than many of our readers have even been alive, let alone building their own PCs! Its fair to say, Cooler Master has a lot of experience in the market, and thats largely thanks to their truly iconic and legendary Hyper 212.

TechPowerUp: ASRock Radeon RX 7900 XTX Taichi White Review - O_o Sexy

The ASRock Radeon RX 7900 XTX Taichi White comes with an amazing design that will look fantastic in any white-themed build. It's also factory overclocked with a large OC out of the box, and the cooler does a great job at keeping the card cool, or whisper-quiet when you activate the "quiet" BIOS.

ThinkComputers: Mountain Makalu Max Gaming Mouse Review

Mountain is back with a new mouse in their Makalu Max. As the same suggests this is a much larger mouse and it has a bunch of features that you don't really find on mice these days. Those include an adjustable weight system and modular side grips.

The Guru of 3D: Mountain Makalu Max mouse review

This article reviews the Mountain Makalu Max mouse (with the addition of the Nunatak M mousepad). It is not the first product of this German company that we're checking. Previously it was the keyboard called Everest Max: Makalu 67 mouse, 60% keyboard Everest 60, and the latest Display and Macro Pad. In December 2022, the Listan Group took over the Mountain (be quiet!).But getting back to the Makalu Max- the first product made under the new ownership - it's an optical gaming mouse presented on 16.05.2023. It targets gamers, no doubt about that, but not only (more about it later).

MadShrimps: Silicon Power Armor A65B 2TB USB 3.2 Gen1 Portable HDD Review

The even more cost-effective version of the Armor series does include the same 2TB drive model as the A85B, so the performance is basically the same, but the outside shell is now made of rubberized plastic instead of aluminum and this can be also noted by the lighter drive (277g vs 298g).
