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.

The ASUS RX 480 STRIX OC is the first custom design variant of the RX 480 we are reviewing. It comes with the same cooler as the STRIX GTX 1080, which ensures excellent temperatures. ASUS has also improved the power capability of their card since it comes with an 8-pin power connector.

Today, NVIDIA released the GeForce GTX 1060, which is designed to combat AMD's Radeon RX 480. It looks like NVIDIA has won this fight since the GTX 1060 brings GTX 980 performance levels to the table while being much more power efficient than the RX 480 - all at a price point of $249 to $299.

MSI's GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X comes with a large dual-fan thermal solution that's incredibly quiet and stops the fans in idle and light gaming. The card is overclocked out of the box as well without sacrificing any of the marvellous power efficiency NVIDIA's Pascal provides.

HiFiMAN's newest high-end headphone, the Edition X, bears a striking resemblance to their flagship HE-1000. It uses the same driver design without the fancy nano materials found in the $1200 more expensive HE-1000, but is, at $1799, still the second most expensive headphone in HiFiMAN's line-up.

Intel's Skylake loves high-speed DDR4. G.Skill loves making it. The G.Skill F4-3866C18D-8GTZ is one of those high-speed kits, topping out at a crazy 3866 MHz, a whole 1733 MHz above the Skylake base memory specification. Can our CPU make it that high? Does your motherboard even support such speeds? G.Skill's 3866 MHz TridentZ kit definitely pushes the limits.

EVGA's GeForce GTX 1070 SuperClocked comes with the company's new ACX 3.0 thermal solution, which uses a dual-fan, dual-slot heatsink to keep the card cool no matter what you throw at it. The card is also the quietest GTX 1070 we tested so far - even quieter than the MSI GTX 1070 Gaming.

The AS3202T is equipped with a quad-core Intel CPU, which enables it to handle up to 4K resolution multimedia content playback. This means the AS3202T can also play a central role in a multimedia set-up while still acting as a regular NAS with up to 16 TB of storage capacity.

Cooler Master is updating the Hyper line of CPU coolers with the Hyper 212X. Featuring a time-tested, single-tower design much like its predecessors, the Hyper 212X looks to build upon their success. Bringing better performance and lower noise levels to the table, this evolution on the 212 EVO could very well become the next go-to budget cooler.

Palit's GTX 1080 GameRock uses a mighty triple-slot dual-fan design, which provides excellent temperatures and noise levels that are better than those of any GTX 1080 we have tested so far. The fans also turn off in idle, and thanks to the large overclock out the box, the card is the fastest GTX 1080 we have tested to date.

Alphacool looks to change the way we think of all-in-one liquid CPU coolers with the Eisbaer 240. Offering expandability at closed-loop prices, it takes things a step further with its all copper design. With good specs and extra features, Alphacool may have just what it takes to sink the competition.

Crysis 4K at more than 60 FPS! We take a close look at multi-GPU SLI with two GeForce GTX 1080 cards in 16 games and at 4 resolutions. We used an SLI HB bridge for all testing, but also have numbers with the old bridge to find out whether a high-bandwidth bridge is absolutely necessary for SLI on Pascal.

The ASUS STRIX GTX 1080 Gaming OC is the highest clocked GTX 1080 variant so far, running almost 2000 MHz actual clock on average, which has it boost up to 2050 MHz out of the box without a manual overclock. The new cooler is not only quiet but also looks good, and the backplate has RGB illumination.
