Tested the NZXT Hue+ and I'm totally floored by it. 

I've used a whole bunch of other cheap LED strips and my biggest complaint would be that their RGB models can't achieve WHITE color properly, it usually has a slight blue tint to it that makes it like light blue. 

Now I don't know what to do with my other LED strips. :D Clearly the Hue+ is the LED strip to be used on my best rigs.

SilverStone sent me the RVX01 - supposedly the smaller sibling of the RV05 and it certainly is.

It costs less, it's smaller, lighter and with lower build quality. I do like it that it's lighter and less bulky but by being that, the RVX01 sacrifices cable management.

Imagine, there's no room at all at the area underneath (or behind, whichever word you prefer) the motherboard tray.

What I'm most interested about the RVX01 is that it has good potential to be modded, I'm already thinking to giving it a new color scheme!

Overall I think it's still a great product, just that it's not recommended if you're using larger sized components.

SYSTEM SETUP
– AMD Athlon X4 840
– AMD Wraith Cooler
– ASUS A88X-Pro
– 2x 4GB AVEXIR Core Blitz DDR3 1600Mhz
– PowerColor PCS R9 390 8GB
– Cooler Master V850 PSU
– ADATA XPG SX930 SSD

+Brian Chong you don't need all that. But that Athlon is easily beat by a 2 core Pentium. Absolute trash

Here's my review of the Acer Predator 15 notebook. Not that the models and its configuration varies from country to country.

It's an excellent notebook but I wouldn't recommend lugging it around, it's just too darn heavy! As a compact desktop replacement I think it works great, especially with the superb audio system. It's not as great as actual speaker sets but it's better than other notebooks around.

Took the ASUS ZenFone Zoom out for a spin - lovely smartphone with a camera that's capable of 3x optical zoom.

Here's my build, along with some details on how the idea came about. Sorry no work log. The green panel at the base is acrylic, cut using Dremel drill tool (with cutter piece) and painted green. Hexagon shapes are stickers.

Special thanks to Cooler Master (Malaysia) and Gigabyte for having faith in me and provided me the components.

------------

As the saying goes “Green with ENVY”, the name NV was chosen not because of the saying but because it’s actually an Nvidia themed build.

The most unique part of this design is the glowing green light on the front panel. On a typical Master Case 5 setup that area serves like a handle even with Pro accessories fitted

The idea behind this is simple – I thought why not put that empty area to good use by having light shine out of it, so I got it done and from what I’ve observed this is probably the first Master Case 5 mod that has lights glowing at the front panel.

Components used

– Cooler Master Master Case Pro 5 (Master Case + Pro accessories)
– Cooler Master Nepton 120XL
– Cooler Master V750 Power Supply
– Intel Pentium G3258 Processor
– Gigabyte G1.Sniper B6 Motherboard
– Gigabyte XTREME GAMING GTX 950 2GB
– AVEXIR Core Series 2x 4GB DDR3
– Patriot Blast 120GB SSD
– Unequaltech Extender Cables
– AVF LED Strip

Took the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge out on a spin ........... for a dip!

If you're the type with butter fingers and love using phones in the toilet or bathroom, you should consider this one.

Gotta love the Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming series, this is their GTX 980 Ti with RGB lights, paired with an ASRock X99 OC Formula.

Lovely stuff, and yes I over did the tilt-shift effect on Instagram! :P

One of the many PC at goldfries.com

- Intel Core i5-4460 - Avexir Core White DDR3 2400 2x 4GB
- ASRock Z87 Extreme4 (modified to white heatsinks)
- Galax GTX 960 White Edition

Took me quite a while to get all the other white components, and they do cost me a fair bit.
