Cougar PowerX 550 W Power Supply Review

Today, we review a Cougar. Probably not the kind you initially thought of. This one is bright orange/red! It’s also a power supply. Cougar is one of HEC/Compucase’s house brands for power supplies and fans, their main claim to fame as far as I can tell are the lurid paint jobs. This unit is no exception! If the performance is as good as the paint is shiny, we’re in for a good unit here. Let’s check! Read More

Arctic Accelero Mono Plus GPU Cooler Review

I recently completed a review of Arctic’s Accelero L2 Plus, which is designed for lower-end video cards at a very attractive price. This time around, we are raising the bar by having a look at the much higher-end Accelero Mono Plus. Unlike the solid aluminum block found on the L2 Plus, today’s sample features a copper block and heatpipe design. The Mono Plus is aimed squarely at the enthusiast crowd, so let’s take this cooler for a spin and see just how well it performs. Read More
