The ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua OC is the quietest graphics card we ever tested thanks to a dual 120 mm fan setup made by Noctua. It runs so quietly, you'll have to put your ear right next to it to hear it at all even when fully loaded while gaming.

Jelly Key comes back strong with two more keycap series we look at today. The first is a cute retro TV series invoking a golden era of imagination and first visitors, and the second dips into mythology by paying homage to dragon legends. Both are good examples of intricate, hand-finished designs that truly make them artisan.

The Thermaltake Divider 200 TG fills the mATX gap in the Divider family of enclosures, but looks vastly different from the 300 or 500 series. With its stacked internal layout and cube shape in combination with the Divider's design elements, the Divider 200 TG is rather unique right out of the gate.

The Drop + Sennheiser PC38X is the best analog gaming headset we tested to date. It sounds astonishingly good, has a very good microphone, and is exceptionally comfortable to wear. Although it comes with a $169 price tag, it's worth every penny.

The Kioxia Exceria Plus G2 offers excellent real-life performance that rivals the best PCIe Gen 3 SSDs out there, but it's unfortunately not available in the US. Priced at around $270, the 2 TB drive in our review is quite affordable, too, and definitely worth considering when looking for a high-performance 2 TB M.2 NVMe SSD.

The Antec Draco 10 is an mATX chassis aiming to deliver cool looks and a clean design with a bit of ARGB bling for those on a tight budget. While affordably priced, it still provides dual USB 3.0 as well as very good liquid-cooling capabilities, so it does seem to have a few aces up its sleeve.

The Sony PlayStation 5 uses a power supply by Delta Electronics. There is no data on the performance of this PSU, so we got curious and fully evaluated it to give you an idea of how the console's PSU performs. Similar to PCs, the quality of the PSU plays a huge role with consoles, too.

AMD's Radeon RX 6600 is an excellent choice for 1080p Full HD gaming. As our review shows, the red team's latest release has enough power to achieve 60 FPS at maximum details, yet doesn't require much power to do so. It's actually the most energy-efficient graphics card we ever tested, which helps keep noise levels down, too.

Campfire Audio shows how accuracy and a neutral frequency response can still be fun with the new Holocene in-ear monitors. It uses a similarly colorful and eco-friendly design for the case as for the Mammoth released alongside, but adopts a more reference-like tuning that is executed well too.

With the Ploopy Mouse, we have something special for review. Running on an open-source QMK firmware, the Ploopy Mouse allows for a high degree of customization, and despite not being a gaming mouse in the strict sense, the Ploopy Mouse nonetheless has a PixArt PMW3360 and plenty of buttons.
