TechPowerUp: Phanteks Eclipse G500A Performance Review

The Phanteks Eclipse G500A Performance really is true to its name with excellent thermal and noise results, wrapped beautifully in a functional body. This is thanks to the four retail M25-140 fans, while still allowing for massive liquid cooling builds or up to 19 hard drives to fit within.

TechPowerUp: Alphacool Core Ocean T38 240 mm AIO Review

Alphacool's Core Ocean T38 240 mm all-in-one liquid cooler dominates the closed-loop competition in value. But more importantly, it also delivers strong performance on Intel systems, making for an easy choice if you want to tame a hot processor without lighting your wallet on fire.

eTeknix: Seagate God of War Ragnarök Limited Edition Game Drive Review

Nobody likes running out of storage, as it often means youre going to have to compromise on what you have downloaded or open your wallet to buy more storage. The same goes for losing your data, we dont like the idea of buying more storage just to keep copies of things.

Anandtech: WD_BLACK P40 Game Drive USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Portable SSD Review: Balanced Storage

Western Digital had announced new products in the WD_BLACK lineup back in May 2022 to augment their offerings in the gaming market. The WD_BLACK P40 Game Drive SSD was part of the set, and became widely available last quarter. Western Digital has positioned the portable drive (PSSD) as a mid-range alternative to the premium WD_BLACK P50 Game Drive SSD. Sporting a USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 (20 Gbps) interface, the drive launched at a much lower price point compared to the P50 despite the addition of RGB lighting to the case. What corners has Western Digital cut in this mid-range offering, and what do gamers have to lose in going with the P40 over competing PSSDs? This review provides some answers.
