Silverstone has taken the RAVEN Z RVZ02 and toned it down a bit for the more traditional PC user. The result is a clean and slim chassis with mass-market appeal and that same great feature set gamers want. Add the handle and you are presented with the ability to build a compact, ultra portable, briefcase-like system that can deliver all the computing power - even for high-end scenarios.

Kennerton Audio's newest mid-end offering, the Laguz, is put to the test. Priced at $110, it will face fierce competition from the Brainwavz S5 and HiFiMAN RE-400. The Laguz is absolutely tiny and features a rugged aluminum design that is pretty unique.

Cooler Master looks to redefine all-in-one liquid coolers with the MasterLiquid Maker 92. Offering a completely unique design that has more in common with a traditional tower cooler than a liquid cooler, it manages to stand out in a crowded market. However, the question is whether it can keep your CPU cool?

MSI looks to dominate the notebook market with the GE72VR Apache Pro. Offering an Intel i7 6700HQ and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, it offers some serious gaming performance for the price. Oh, and it includes an SSD and IPS screen, which are certainly appealing.

MSI's GeForce GTX 1060 OC 6GT is a cost-optimized custom-design variant of the GTX 1060 that still comes with 6 GB VRAM and an overclock out of the box. In our testing, we didn't see much of a difference to more expensive custom boards.

The Deepcool Gamer Storm Genome is a gaming chassis with an embedded Captain 360 cooling solution and cool double-helix reservoir. Many have tried offering a case and liquid-cooling combo in the past, but this seems to be one of the first cases out there that does not only seem to look good but also ends up being functional - but only a closer examination of its genes will tell.

AZiO have been around for some time, making some great keyboards for those who want premium features at an affordable price. They have now released the MGK L80 range, which, as their motto suggests, look "Elegantly Fierce." This range has three keyboards - a red, blue or RGB version is available.

Zotac's GTX 1080 AMP! Edition is one of the more affordable custom designs, retailing $30 cheaper than the Founders Edition. The dual-slot, dual-fan card is still overclocked out of the box and comes with a good cooler that uses lots of metal, delivering excellent noise levels.

Top-flow cooler designs tend to come across as a little stale these days, but be quiet! must have missed the memo with the Dark Rock TF. Rather than boring and bland, this new sleek, dark nickel-plated offering also looks aggressive. Offering ultra-low noise levels and a surprising level of performance, it might just be what you are looking for.

You probably haven't heard of Dream Machines, a new company planning on taking the peripheral market by storm. One of their first mice, the DM1 Pro, is here, and it looks as though it will be going head to head with products from such brands as Zowie and SteelSeries.

NVIDIA released their new Pascal based Titan X earlier this week. It is based on a brand-new GP102 graphics processor, which is even more power efficient than the one in the GTX 1080. In our review of this $1200 card, we take a closer look at whether there is a way to justify the purchase somehow.

ASRock has upped the ante with mini-PCs by introducing their latest innovation, the ASRock DeskMini 110. The DeskMini 110 features the new Mini-STX form factor that brings full 65W CPU support into a tiny 5"x5" package. That means you can stuff a 65W Core i7 6700 Skylake-S CPU into the ASRock DeskMini 110. It also features a PCIe Gen3 x4 link for one of its M.2 ports, so you can have ultra-fast storage, too!

Eurocom looks to impress with its ultra portable 14 inch Monster 4. Weighing in at just 2kg / 4.4lbs, it is light, but don't let its small size fool you. It comes configured with an Intel Core i7 6700HQ and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M, which gives it quite the punch for such a tiny system.

The Antec P380 is a full-tower chassis that aims to offer an understated and clean look by employing solid and thick aluminum panels and excellent steel construction. The no-frills interior goes for a useful feature set - all at a price that seems to make sense.
