With memory capacities soaring, G.Skill sent us a huge 32 GB kit out of their Ripjaws V line-up, ready to be mated with Intel's Skylake processors. This two-stick kit from G.Skill is not only huge in capacity at it is also very fast at 3200 MHz.

The Zalman Z9 NEO aims to offer a diverse and useful feature set and good looks and liquid-cooling compatibility, all at an affordable price. Add the fact that it comes equipped with a whooping 5 (!!) fans and it just got even more interesting, while the choice between a black or white version does not help curb the expectations we have diving into this review.

The XM300 is Gigabyte's take on an RGB gaming mouse. It keeps the low price point Gigabyte's other mice have, but offers very impressive specifications with Omron switches, an optical sensor, and, of course, RGB lighting, a steal for just 40 bucks.

When it comes to overclocking, ASUS's ROG series has a long-held reputation everyone else strives to achieve. The ASUS MAXIMUS VIII EXTREME stands out as the product to uphold that tradition for Skylake; a tradition of huge capabilities and amazing BIOSes along with a nearly bullet-proof design that is truly deserving of the "EXTREME" moniker.
