The Aivia line presents an ambidextrous mouse with 8,200 dpi of resolution and an innovative system of interchangeable under plates. Read our evaluation.
Here is a snippet:
“Who would have thought that Krypton, the home planet of Superman, would be reduced to the tiny size of a gaming-grade mouse? Well, that’s the name of the new model from Gigabyte’s Aivia line. It features an innovation right out of the mind of Jor-El, the scientist father of the Man of Steel: two interchangeable under plates, each one with a different set of feet (Teflon and ceramic) that delivers a different sliding control. We’ll talk about this characteristic and other features after we describe the product.”
Quote: “Overall, the GD07 is a nice looking and very functional case.
And thanks to its more traditional construction (steel chassis with
plastic trim and aluminum front door) the GD07 is more affordable than
some of SilverStone’s other high-end HTPC enclosures. The down side
is you’re trading the elegant, hand-built feel of the all-aluminum
high-end cases for a more traditional case.”
“It’s been a year since our last Thermaltake case review, the Chaser MK-1 full tower. Those familiar with some of the features of that model may be pleased to learn that Thermaltake has incorporated many of those same options into their new Armor Revo cases. Things like the built-in fan speed and light control, top external hard drive dock, pivoting base feet and removable mesh filters are carried over directly. The chassis layout is also very similar, with the same four bay front and large 200mm front, top and side mount fans.”

In the fall of 2011, Cooler Master’s gaming and enthusiast product branch, CM Storm, released the CM Storm Trooper Computer Case. It was a massive full-tower case with a very unique front I/O style and a big handle on top. The CM Storm Trooper received a lot of high marks by reviewers and owners alike. This time around, Cooler Master is changing things up just a little. The CM Storm Trooper is getting a face-lift and a name change. In this article, Benchmark Reviews is taking a look at the CM Storm Stryker, a white, windowed version of the Trooper.
In this review, we take a look at the first fully modular power supply from Cooler Master.
The Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybrid 1050W power supply offers not only a gigantic high performance, but also a fan control for three more fans in the PC system and the internal 135 mm fan.
In auto mode, the power supply is passively cooled up to an overall load of approx. 200 watts.
Additionally, the Cooler Master 1050W power supply has a special 7 Volt fan connector and dozens more features, which we will take a look at in this review.
“I can honestly say that I wasn’t sure what to expect from a mini-ITX motherboard like the ASRock Z77E-ITX. I was afraid that it wouldn’t be on par or as capable as a full ATX motherboard. Once all the benchmarking is said and done though, I have to say that I am really happy with the ASRock Z77E-ITX motherboard. Sure we are missing a couple of things that are typical to an ATX or Micro-ATX motherboard, but that is more due to available real estate on the PCB than anything else…”
