TechPowerUp: AQIRYS Libertas Wireless Mechanical Keyboard Review

The AQIRYS Libertas is a wireless 75% form factor keyboard that uses a combination of silent switches, a well-implemented gasket mount, and plenty of dampening to make for one of the quietest mechanical keyboards on the market. It also offers RGB lighting with a translucent chassis in addition to extensive software and hardware customization for a decent price.

eTeknix: Thermaltake Smart BM3 850W Semi-Modular Power Supply Review

We love ultra-high-end hardware here at eTeknix, but at the same time, I'm fully aware that that isn't what everyone really needs, nor does everyone want to pay the price for it either. While the Smart BM3 isn't the most exciting power supply in the world, albeit even the best power supplies aren't that exciting either, it looks like it ticks all the right boxes for a pretty high-end gaming PC build without costing the Earth. With a choice of 550, 650, 750 and 850W units, there's one to suit most requirements and the top model is more than enough

APH Networks: Corsair MP600 Elite 2TB Review

Recently, Shell had a 40x Air Miles promotion when you fill up. For those who are unfamiliar with how it works, Shell awards you one Air Mile for every 20L of regular gas, and one Air Mile is worth about $0.10. However, when you count points in increments of 20L, you can potentially lose quite a bit under the 40x promotion. For example, in an extreme case, if you fill up 19.999L, you will get zero miles, while adding 0.001L to that will net you just over $4 in points. I was thinking how to maximize this promotion as we had two cars in the house that I needed to fill, and filling them separately means I can potentially lose up to $8 worth up to Air Miles if I miss the increments on both cars. Without resorting to fuel containers, filling them at the same time could be a challenge even with two drivers, as the closest Shell to my house is not the cheapest Shell in the area, and it costs money to drive to the gas station. Furthermore, it is physically challenging to fill up two cars in one transaction, as one person needs to pump gas while the other needs to shuffle the two cars between fill ups. After thinking about it for a while, I figured out a solution. On the last day of the promotion, my wife and I were both passing by the cheapest Shell in the area at the same time, so that solved the first problem. To solve the second problem, we parked on opposite sides of the pump, so the hose is long enough to reach both cars without moving any of them. As luck would have had it, we netted 80.037L in one transaction, hitting the increments perfectly and scoring a solid $16 worth of Air Miles. As it can be seen, small modifications in the right areas can result in significant results. Last year, we reviewed the MP600 Core XT 2TB, a budget SSD from Corsair. Today, we have the MP600 Elite 2TB, which has the same DRAM-less design, but if you take a closer look, you will see the Elite uses a faster Phison controller and upgraded flash memory. Are these modifications in the right areas that will result in significant performance differences? Read on to find out!

TechPowerUp: Crucial T500 2 TB Review

Crucial's T500 SSD comes at competitive pricing and still includes a preinstalled heatsink and a dedicated DRAM cache chip. It sees strong competition from drives like the Lexar NM790 which are similarly priced, but offer slightly higher performance.
