The PassMark Inline PSU tester lets you perform in-depth testing of power supplies, beyond what a simple multimeter can do. It's also compact enough to carry with you in the field. We cross-verified its readings against our professional lab equipment with surprisingly good results.

Sapphire's RX 5600 XT Pulse comes at $289, which is only a small $10 premium over the AMD MSRP, yet it's faster than the GeForce RTX 2060. The card's cooler does a great job and delivers good temperatures paired with amazing noise levels, and it has fan-stop, too.

The ASUS Radeon RX 5600 XT STRIX TOP uses the same cooler and PCB design as the RX 5700 XT STRIX OC, which makes this a massively overbuilt design. Thanks to a 10-phase GPU VRM paired with low voltages, the card is actually more power efficient than NVIDIA's Turing lineup.

Dream Machines is back with another right-handed ergonomic mouse. Equipped with a PMW3389 sensor, Huano switches for most buttons, Dream Machines' highly flexible "shoelace" cable, and an impressive set of RGB lighting, the DM4 Evo should be worth a look not just for those on a budget.

The Team Group Delta Max RGB SSD offers truly impressive RGB illumination that can be synced with your motherboard's lighting effects. Each of the LEDs can be controlled separately, both in color and brightness. Performance is also very decent due to the combination of the SMI controller with some Samsung TLC flash.

With just $50 for the tested 512 GB model, the BIOSTAR M700 M.2 NVMe SSD is the most affordable SSD we ever reviewed, even cheaper than most 2.5" SATA drives. Thanks to its fast PCIe x4 3.0 interface paired with an SMI controller, performance is good, too. Is there any reason left to buy a 2.5" SATA SSD?

Building upon the success of the analog HyperX Cloud Alpha, the Cloud Alpha S keeps everything that was great with the original, but adds an USB sound card to the mix, which makes it slightly more expensive. We take a thorough look to see if the extra features are worth the added cost!

The XR5 360 Radiator from CORSAIR is the thinner, more cost-optimized sibling to the XR7 360. It delivers good performance without breaking the bank, and will fit in confined cases thanks to its only 30 mm thickness.

The Team Group T-Force Vulcan SSD is priced extremely competitively with $50 for 500 GB, yet delivers outstanding performance. What's surprising is that the drive comes in both TLC and MLC variants, at the same price, but there's no way to know before buying. We tested both models in our review, with surprising results.
