Mistel is aiming to get their name out in a bold way, but via a keyboard that is anything but bold. The MD870 SLEEKER is a keyboard built to outlast nearly every component in a PC thanks to the use of a thick aluminum case, PBT plastic, and internal steel plate. Add in a subtle white lighting effect, and you have a keyboard that is fit to be used in any environment.

Today, Crucial released their new MX500 Series of SSDs. The new lineup is built using 64-layer 3D TLC NAND made by Micron, Crucial's parent company. Unlike previous models, an SMI controller is used, which delivers good performance that actually feels very much like that of an MLC drive.

If you're after a nice-sounding USB gaming headset in the $80 price bracket, you should keep a close eye on the Corsair Void Pro RGB USB. Even though the microphone quality isn't on the same level as the rest of the headset, it's still an interesting choice for anyone who's not concerned with serious streaming and voiceovers.

The Synology DS918+ is the successor to the DS916+ and features a new CPU, more RAM, a pair of M.2 slots, and trays with locks. Strangely enough, the older model seems to perform better in real-life scenarios; however, the DS918+ is fast enough to still meet the increasing demands of a home user.

MSI's Z370 GAMING PRO CARBON is almost at the top of MSI's Z370 offerings. It's got all the GAMING goodies and then a bunch of overclocking stuff and a beefy VRM too, so you can push your Coffee Lake CPUs to the limit. Also included is a bundled Intel PCIe WiFi card.

The Cougar Conquer is not your everyday chassis. It does not aim for a sensible high-end price tag due to unique features and functions. But delivers on looks first and foremost, with an excellent quality mix and a simple, yet well-rounded and functional feature set second.

The Cherry MX Board 6.0 has a thick aluminum top, a technology called "RealKey" for extremely fast response times, high quality Cherry MX switches with low profile keycaps, and controllable red backlighting.

The Core i9-7900X is where Intel's new HEDT processor lineup truly begins, delivering on all the platform's three main goals - more cores, more memory channels, and more PCIe lanes. We pit it against the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X for what will be the pitched battle of the $1000 giants.

Corsair finally added RGB lighting to their excellent ML fans, and with it added, we possibly have the best balance of performance, noise, and aesthetics. Featuring a magnetic levitation bearing, a fine-tuned rotor for high static pressure applications, and four addressable RGB LEDs.

ADATA brings to market yet another set of RGB DDR4 sticks with their ADATA SPECTRIX D40 RGB memory, and we take them for a spin on Intel's X299 platform. With ASUS AURA SYNC compatibility, these sticks have a fresh look right out of the box, yet with a default 2666 JEDEC profile, these are a perfect match for all of Intel's latest CPUs, especially the HEDT ones.

Corsair decided that having 12 RGB LEDs on a fan was not enough, and with the LL RGB fans, we get 16 addressable ones split into two light loops. Featuring software control via the Lighting Node PRO, these are all about maxing out on the bling factor.

The Gentle Typhoon made a comeback recently under the DarkSide brand, and in an all-black color scheme too. It was the fan of choice for PC DIY enthusiasts only a few years ago, and in this review, we will see how it holds up against newer fans and features alike.
