Today we are going to take a look at a budget minded cooler from them, the Kingwin XT-1264 HTC. The XT-1264 HTC falls in the 120mm class of heatpipe coolers. Will the XT-1264 HTC be able to keep up with the likes of the Titan Fenrir or Cooler Master Hyper N620?
Until recently there was no point in installing 2.5 inch drives in desktop cases. These drives couldn’t compete with the 3.5 inch drives either in performance or price. With the SSDs now dropping in price the scene has somewhat changed or is at least undergoing a change. If you are building a HTPC or something similar you may actually want a SSD in it to make it more silent, faster or for whatever reason. Now as most desktop cases, even smaller HTPC cases, only supports 3.5 inch drives, you will need some kind of converting hard drive enclosure if you want to install a 2.5 inch hard drive. And this is where the Icy Dock MB882 case comes in…

"Most of NZXT's cases tend to be rather eye-catching, and previously we've had the Rogue and the Tempest from their product range for closer inspection. The previous two cases differed greatly from each other, so lets see what course their latest offering takes - Introducing the Panzerbox."
"Today we’re looking at a wireless keyboard and mouse offering from I-Rocks. This is an interesting product for those looking for a keyboard/mouse combo for their HTPC, or for those just looking for a decent wireless setup for their everyday computer to reduce some wire clutter."

"At first glance it seemed like it wouldn't be very useful, but at the end of the day it was actually quite a nice device to have around. It takes your phone or media player and gives it a secure home to sit where you can still use the device and view it more effectively. The only real downside is that it costs around ~$40.00 and that is not cheap for a device that merely holds your iPhone or Zune. . ."

The Zotac MAG packs a dual core Atom 330 with an ION platform, 2 GB of memory and 160 GB of hard drive space along with a few other surprises. All for an extremely competitive price tag.
It is not a secret that the Performance mouse MX is first of all intended as an “all tasks” mouse. Of course I tested its gaming capabilities as well which you can read about further down in this review. Without a doubt, the Performance Mouse MX has some really interesting specifications as you can see from the table below. One of the most prominent features is the new “Unifying” technology which connects up to 6 devices to one single USB receiver. The only downside is that this technology is not compatible with older wireless products from Logitech…
