Sharkoon Announces SKILLER SGH2 Gaming Headset

With the SKILLER SGH2, Sharkoon expands the lineup within their SKILLER series and introduces, for the very first time, a stereo gaming headset with USB connector. It is equipped with 50 mm drivers, projecting deep bass and clear highs. An omnidirectional microphone with flexible microphone arm promises perfect voice transmissions. Visually, the SGH2 attracts attention with its subtle mesh covers and blue LED illumination on the ear cups. The headset can operate on any PC or notebook with an available USB Type A port on Windows 7/8/10, no driver installation is needed. It is also compatible with the PlayStation 4. Connect it for use via its gold-plated USB Type A connector.

The built-in 50 mm drivers are specially designed to meet the needs of demanding gamers and have a frequency range of 20 to 20,000 hertz with a maximum output of 50 milliwatts. The attached microphone offers omnidirectional usage and promises natural voice transmissions while gaming as well as during voice chats. Thanks to the flexible microphone arm, positioning is always adaptable to individual needs. Due to its circumaural design, the extra-large ear pads effectively contribute to the suppression of ambient noise. The headset also has a spring loaded headband suspension. This allows the headset to automatically adapt to the shape of the head and, even during prolonged gaming or hectic playing situations, ensures the best possible stability as well as outstanding wear comfort.

Sharkoon Prepares to Launch Their S1000 and S1000 Window Micro-ATX Cases

With the compact S1000 and S1000 Window, Sharkoon introduces two new micro-ATX cases with an integrated tunnel for power supplies and hard drives. As a result, the power supply and hard drives are installed discreetly to the case bottom and out of sight. The S1000 Window version also offers an acrylic side window and a pre-installed 120mm blue LED fan on the rear panel.

Fresh air is supplied through the side air intakes of the front panel, behind which a detachable dust filter is also provided. Another removable dust filter is located on the bottom of the case. Both case versions include a pre-installed 120 mm fan in the front. Suitable mounting holes are also provided for additional fans. Alternatively, despite the compact design, a 240 mm radiator can be installed with a total height of 5.9 cm including fan. To facilitate the installation of 280 mm radiators, the 5.25" drive bay is modular and, if necessary, easily removed. Located on the top of the front panel are the audio connectors for the microphone and headphone as well as two USB 3.0 ports. These are incorporated directly into the body of the case, thus allowing the front panel to be cableless removed. On the top panel of the S1000 Window is an additional, pre-installed dust filter, which is secured by magnetic fasteners, plus it is also possible to install up to three 120 fans or two 140 mm fans. With the S1000, the top panel is closed and a 120 mm fan is pre-installed on the rear panel, but without LED illumination. Another optional 120 mm fan can be installed to the side panel.

Sharkoon Announces SKILLER MECH SGK3 Keyboard

Sharkoon expands the lineup within their SKILLER series and introduces another keyboard with mechanical switches from Kailh: The Sharkoon SKILLER MECH SGK3 is the big brother of the recently released SGK2, which came without a number block.

Typical for the SKILLER MECH, the SGK3 utilizes the proven switches from Kailh. As usual, customers have the choice between blue, brown and red switches. The blue switches are tactile and provide acoustic as well as detectable feedback. The brown switches are just as tactile, while also offering a detectable switching point but no acoustic feedback. For those desiring both an undetectable switching point and click point, the linear red switches are for you. All three offer the same operating force of 50 grams as well as a 1.9 mm distance to actuation point. The operation life cycle of the keys is at least 50 million keystrokes. Visually, the SKILLER MECH SGK3 wows with its customizable RGB illumination with up to 16.8 million colors.

The Sharkoon SilentStorm Icewind, in a white edition, is deliberately kept in line with the colors snow white and ice blue and is aimed at users who, in addition to the technical details, also attach importance to the design of their components and their cabling. Naturally, the textile braided cable also fits perfectly into the color scheme.

Modular cables and cable combs ensure the PC stays tidy. The cables can be secured with practical cable combs and are kept intentionally modular, except for the firmly soldered 24-pin mainboard cable and 4+4-pin CPU cable. This ensures that only the immediately needed cables are used. In addition to the firmly soldered cables, a cable with three 4-pin IDE connectors as well as three cables with three SATA connectors are included; an extra two PCIe cables with a 6+2-pin connector is provided in the 550 Watt version. The 650 and 750 Watt versions connect via its two PCIe cables, each with two 6+2-pin connector. The unused cables can be easily stored in the included cable bag.

The power supply is effectively cooled via its 135 mm fan.

Other characteristics are as usual, with a maximum 40 cm length for the graphics card, 16.7 cm for the CPU cooler, 20.5 cm for the power supply, support for 2x 140 mm fans on the front panel (pre-installed) or one of those 240 mm radiators; 1x 120 mm fan support on the back of the chassis; and up to 3x 120 mm fans or 2x 140 mm on the top of the case (we posit 280 mm AIOs can also be fit there).
