TechPowerUp: Corsair iCUE Link RX120 RGB 120 mm Fan Review

Corsair's new RX120 RGB fans build upon the iCUE Link ecosystem to have easy grouping and cable-less connections and use a performance-optimized design paired with 8 ARGB LEDs per fan. The net result is an RGB fan with all the lighting effects you'd ever want and very good performance across a long RPM range too.

ThinkComputers: DeepCool Mystique 360 Liquid CPU Cooler Review

The last time we took a look at a DeepCool AIO (the LS720 WH) it topped our chart in load cooling performance, and continues to hold that place to this day. Fast forward to present time, and we are here with another DeepCool AIO for review. We first saw this AIO, the Mystique 360 at CES 2024, and were impressed by the potential that this cooler seemed to have - 640 x 480 display, improved 5th gen pump, a redesigned coldplate, and more. Let's not wait any further, and get right into this review of the DeepCool Mystique 360.

APH Networks: Cooler Master V SFX Gold ATX 3.0 850W Report

Naming conventions can be quite an interesting pursuit. I have been around computers and gaming consoles for a long time and very few naming conventions make sense to me. The Xbox lineup has been laughed at for their console names, going from Xbox to 360 to One to Series X|S. Similarly, AMD's graphics cards have been an enigma to me. Understanding where each card lands in performance tiers is confusing. NVIDIA is slightly simpler with their naming schemes, but some context is still required to understand which cards are higher than others. Context is crucial to get a grip on what each of the naming schemes mean and how they may indicate performance. Each company has their own ideas in naming their electronics, and it gets even more confusing when they launch a new series. It takes time and attention to discover what the lineup is about and how their products fit into the landscape of everything else, both for their own products and in comparisons with other companies. Having a deeper knowledge of the whole landscape provides the needed context to start to understand what the names mean. Power supplies are similar. Having more context and information about them and the parts that make up the whole provides the necessary insight and understanding to provide an overview of the product. Today, we have the Cooler Master V SFX Gold ATX 3.0 850W. It is an updated version of a power supply we have previously reviewed, the Cooler Master V850 SFX Gold 850W. The one we have to look at today, however, meets the ATX 3.0 standard. What does this updated name mean? Let us read on to find out!
