A good power supply doesn't just provide you with ample output. Increasingly, vendors have put a bigger emphasis on delivering power more efficiently, too. We're testing five 80 PLUS Platinum-rated power supplies in the 550- to 600-watt range.
We set out to build a PC with completely customizable LED lighting. And when we say the PC, we mean the whole thing. The mouse, keyboard, gamepad, enclosure, memory, fan controller, and even power supply are loaded with configurable color controls.
Rosewill evens the playing field by bringing LED backlighting to its RK-9000 line of mechanical keyboards.
Rosewill is expanding its best-selling mechanical keyboard series with the new Limited Edition Elite Ivory RK-9000I and RK-9000BRI.
Computex Taipei has long since closed its doors but we're still working through the backlog of images and information from the editorial team that was deployed in Taiwan. Rosewill was at the show to display several cases as well as a deluge of PSUs.
Extra space for cooling, controllers, and add-in cards makes XL-ATX the preferred solution for extreme system builders. Today, we follow up our picture story by testing four 10-slot cases that support XL-ATX and four-way SLI (with room to spare).
With several XL-ATX motherboards sitting in the lab (and more on the way), an abundance of expansion continues to push extreme enthusiast towards ten-slot cases. We take a closer look at four of contenders with room for four-way graphics configurations.
Rosewill has released its Blackhawk-Ultra "super tower", with spacing for HPTX motherboards (13.6" x 15"), second power supply or even a kitchen sink if needed.
The most hardcore gamers use multiple graphics cards in CrossFire and SLI configurations. And yet, slinging dual-slot cards together eats up a lot of expansion space. We compare five eight-slot cases with room for complex graphics configurations.
Do you need an eighth slot for a CrossFire or SLI setup? We look at five cases that solve the problem created when motherboard vendors put a PCI Express x16 slot at the bottom of an ATX-based platform and you try to install a double-slot graphics card.
We received a trio of 1000 W power supplies priced between $200 and $300, so we ran them through our usual suite of tests to see if they really live up to their 80 PLUS Gold certifications. Surprisingly, all three hiccuped during efficiency testing.
