Laptops these days don’t come with many USB ports — and if your laptop has a USB-C port or two, then you may find yourself with no full-size USB-A ports at all. (Cough, MacBook, cough.) That’s where this USB-C to USB-A hub from ICZI comes in — it turns one USB-C port into seven USB 3.0 ports. That should be more than enough ports for even the most dedicated peripheral owner, right?

NZXT have just unveiled their latest special edition case, and it’s an absolute beauty. The S340 Elite Hyper Beast features the artwork of Brock Hofer, a Nova Scotian who is responsible for some of the coolest weapon skins in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (shown below).
We were big fans of the original S340 Elite when we reviewed it, thanks to its excellent thermals and excellent cable management, but this new design makes it even cooler. The Hyper Beast limited edition even includes a special gradient-coloured cable management bar.
Only 1337 units will be made, each individually numbered with a metal identifier. The S340 Elite Hyper [...]
Picture a PC gaming mouse in your head. A big sensor on the bottom, a few extra buttons on the side, and a sleek design replete with LEDs. What colour is it? Probably black, maybe with red or silver accents in places. Now open your eyes, and have a look at Mionix’s latest line of Castor gaming mice. Notice anything different?
Yup, these mice come in colours that aren’t just black or silver. You can choose from a lovely range of creatively coloured gaming rodents with even cooler names: Frosting (Pink), Ice Cream (Blue), French Fries (yellow) or Shark Fin (Grey). We’ve got an Ice Cream in to review — wish I could say that every day! — so [...]
