The Megahalems is a single tower CPU cooler which is split down the centre by an air pressure-enhancing channel. 6 nickel-plated, U-shaped, 6mm copper heatpipes connect the flat, nickel-plated base to an aluminium fin array. 2 pairs of fan clips allow users to install a pair of 120 or 140mm fans of their choice in a single or push-pull configuration. Prolimatech also offer separately-available 38mm wide fan clips for users looking to unleash some extreme cooling potential with 38mm thick fans. At a height of 158.7mm and weight of 790g without fans, the Megahalems can certainly be considering beastly in size when it comes to single tower CPU coolers.

Every physical piece of this fan offers some in the way of science to help make it one of the most efficient fans to date.
The Crucial M4 256GB has dropped significantly in price recently, and can be found for as little as $249 online. Compare that to the likes of the 240GB SandForce powered OCZ Vertex 3 at $280, or the Intel 520 Series at $330. In fact, it is probably the cheapest synchronous-flash SATA-3 240/256GB drive you can buy right now. Other drives in this price range will be using slower asynchronous flash.
Corsair's Hydro H80 is a no fuss, no mess CPU liquid cooling solution that installs with ease onto Intel socket LGA2011/1366/1155/1156/775 and AMD socket AM3/AM2/FM1 processors. The unit consists of two parts, a 12v DC pump head with integrated reservoir and thin skived copper waterblock, and the fluid-to-air aluminum heat exchanger. While the Corsair Hydro H80 does perform exceptionally well, it ain't perfect.
The KANA falls in to the middle category, classified by Steelseries as “the middle child” the KANA fills a void often left in the market for high end business users and casual gamers.

Back in September 2009, CM Storm released the Sentinel Advance Laser Gaming Mouse. It sported a 5600 DPI laser sensor, which was the top-of-the-line at the time. 5600 DPI is still very high for a gaming mouse. Now Cooler Master is releasing the next evolution of this gaming mouse, the CM Storm Sentinel Advance II Laser Gaming Mouse SGM-6010-KLLW1. Sporting an Avago ADNS-9800 laser sensor, the Sentinel Advance II has the capability to scale up to 8200 DPI and all the way down to 200 DPI. In this article, Benchmark Reviews examines the CM Storm Sentinel Advance II Laser Gaming Mouse SGM-6010-KLLW1.
