The Fractal Design Torrent is an all-new chassis with a unique internal layout and the ability to easily hold even the largest air coolers out there. Add plenty of space for custom loops and five intake fans, two of which are 180 mm, and the Torrent could be the breeze of fresh air Fractal Design needs.

Korea might not be famous for ninjas, but Monstargear sure hopes to change that with its new NINJA87BT TKL keyboard. It can be bought as a kit with uncommon switches, optional keycap sets, wired and wireless connectivity options, hot-swap switches, lubed stabilizers, and sound-absorbing foam, and even starts at under $100, too!

The Audeze Euclid is a true force of engineering and design, taking the company's latest Fazor-enriched planar magnetic technology and shrinking it down to fit inside proper IEMs for the first time. These are also closed-back in design, but have a soundstage that rivals some open-back, over-ear headphones!

Bykski impressed us before with its 30-mm-thick RC (red copper) radiator, today we examine its bigger brother. The equally new TK60V2 is 60 mm thick and a triple-row radiator that also uses a copper core instead of brass in an attempt to achieve excellent thermal performance and scaling with airflow.

ASUS joins the mainstream trend of 60% keyboards by going with a 65% form factor with the ROG Falchion. It adopts a minimalist design, but doesn't compromise on features by adopting wired/wireless connectivity, wireless Aura Sync, plenty of switches to choose from, and a novel touch pad on the side!

be quiet!'s Dark Rock TF 2 takes a tried and true top-flow design and refreshes it for modern systems with new fan designs, aesthetically pleasing looks, and the low-noise operation you'd expect. The only problem? Performance doesn't live up to expectations.

Sapphire's Pulse is a cost-efficient, no-frills Radeon RX 6600 XT custom design that comes in at only a small price increase over the AMD base price. In our review, we found that the card still achieves excellent noise levels while also keeping temperatures low.

The XFX Radeon RX 6600 XT Merc 308 is a custom-design card that can impress with its ultra-quiet operation. It's pretty much inaudible even when fully loaded, making it the quietest RX 6600 XT we have tested. The card is also of standard-slot height, so it should fit all cases easily.

Etymotic is synonymous with its probing acoustic chamber, single-driver tuning with a neutral and accurate response. This changes with the new Etymotic EVO that adopts an ergonomic design and the company's first multi-driver setup in an attempt to be more accurate while also increasing soundstage and presence.

The Icy Dock EZ-Adapter MB031U-1SMB combines both M.2 SATA and 2.5" SATA connectivity via a USB 3.1 interface to access those types of drives quickly externally. With its compact size and detachable cable, it can be quite the little helper if dealing with these SATA drives on an ongoing basis.

We look at two new keyboards from Epomaker today which follow a "red wine" color scheme. The SK61 is a 60% keyboard designed purely for typing with layers in mind, and the SK21 is an add-on numpad for when you need to do some number crunching.

The TDBT HybridHub-S very much looks like most other USB-C hubs out there, with its ports and metal housing. However, the ability to install an M.2 SATA SSD within its core sets it apart from the crowd.

At €125, the Chieftec Polaris 1050 is a good deal, offering high efficiency levels and decent performance. For those in need of a strong PSU, there aren't many options in this price range. If you don't mind the short warranty of only two years, you should consider this product.
