MSI MPG Sekira 100R Mid-Tower Case Review

Today, we take a look at MSI’s MPG Sekira 100R mid-tower chassis. This is the second review of a series of new MSI cases announced in August, the first being the MSI MPG Gungnir 110R. The Sekira 100R is a gaming chassis that provides a touch of class with its chrome edging, ARGB lighting, and tempered glass front and side panels. It shares many of the great features we loved in the Gungnir 110R with a different aesthetic and several new innovations that caught our attention. Conversely, if you prefer an RGB-less build, be sure to check out the Sekira 100P. It is the same chassis as the Sekira 100R, without all the flashy lights or tempered glass front panel. Read More

Alphacool Launches Rise Aurora 120mm PWM ARGB Fan

Today, Alphacool launched the Rise Aurora 120 mm PWM fan. This high-speed fan features a sleeve-bearing with a rated speed of 2500RPM capable of producing 118 m3h of airflow and 3.17 mm/H2O of static pressure. These impressive numbers do come at the cost of noise as the Rise Aurora 120 mm generates 31.5 dB(A) at its maximum speed. To help control the noise it is fitted with a PWM connector with 0% PWM functionality so your motherboard can tame this beast when its full power isn’t needed. Additionally, it features 20 addressable RGB LEDs to provide a beautiful array of lighting.  Currently available on the Alphacool website for $19.45 the Rise Aurora is bound to be a success. Here is the press release from Alphacool. Read More

Scythe Mugen 5 ARGB Plus Heatsink Review

Scythe comes in bringing yet another revision of its acclaimed Mugen 5 heatsink, the Mugen 5 ARGB Plus. This time the changes are mostly cosmetic in the form of an ARGB top cover and two ARGB Kaze Flex fans. However, this revision does use two fans instead of one, and the ARGB fans have a higher speed rating. So, there is potential for increased performance as well. Read More

Silverstone PF360 All-In-One Liquid CPU Cooler Review

Silverstone has been around since 2003 and have a sizable stake in the PC chassis, power supply, CPU cooler, fans, and accessory markets. Personally, I was first introduced to them as a top tier PC case manufacturer, and I still have and use some of their older cases such as the PS07, TJ08-E, and the TJ07. However, we have one of their all-in-one liquid CPU coolers up for testing, the PF360. The PF360 is a large 3×120 mm CPU cooler featuring addressable RGB on both the fans and pump/block housing.
