Cooler Master Hyper D92 CPU Cooler Review

Cooler Master Hyper D92

Design-wise, the Cooler Master Hyper D92 is a re-engineered Hyper N520, improving upon its design based on current system building concerns such as better RAM heatspreader clearance compatibility, better looks and improved efficiency.

Noctua IndustrialPPC Fans Review

Noctua NF-A14 Industrial PPC 2000

A tiger can’t change its stripes nor can a leopard change its spots so when fans asked Noctua to abandon their tan and brown signature colors and adopt generic black fan designs, did they really expect it to happen? The Noctua color scheme is as easily identifiable as a Ferrari in red so if Noctua is to make a black ... Read More »

I know personally I switch out my GPU more than I do my keyboard. I think that I have used the same keyboard on my daily rig for ... Read More »
