Fall 2014 Cooler Roundup

We have just posted up our Fall 2014 Cooling Roundup. In this roundup we take a look at a few liquid coolers from NZXT and Thermaltake as well as heatsinks from Thermaltake and Noctua. We put them head-to-head in a maximum-performance shootout on a mildly overclocked Intel Core i7 4790K CPU.  If you are looking for a new cooler this fall, take a look as we've updated our cooling platform to reflect more current CPUs and have a total of nine coolers battling for top honors. Check our review for all the details.

We have coolers from Noctua, Thermaltake and NZXT represented here today and this round will cover HSF units as well as liquid cooling kits. We won't do a direct comparison of noise, but we will make some notes as to noise levels as we go. If you want some good kit-cooling and have a decent budget, make sure you follow along to see the candidates.

Thermaltake @ CES 2013

We had the opportunity to stop by Thermaltake today and check out their new products for 2013. Thermaltake has a full lineup of keyboards, mice, power supplies, headphones, and more that they were showing off.

We took a look at Thermaltake’s Tt esports keyboards which featured their MEKA keyboards which are mechanical keyboards built with gamers in mind.

ROCCAT @ CES 2014

We met up with ROCCAT to take a look at some of their new offerings for this upcoming year here at CES 2014. 


ROCCAT has a new line of headsets, the Kave, which has a couple different versions (an analog version and a digital 5.1 surround version). We didn't get much of a chance to demo these too in-depth but given ROCCAT's track record we are looking forward to getting them onto the BCCHardware test bench for some more testing.

ROCCAT was also showing off their lineup of keyboards which is highlighted by the Ryos mechanical keyboards. The Ryos keyboards aren't new but they have introduced a new smaller version of the Ryos dubbed the Ryos TKL which is the same keyboard minus the number pad to make it fit into tighter desk configurations where a full keyboard might not work.

Android App Pick - Super Stickman Golf 2

We have just posted up another Android App Pick of the Week and this week we take a look at Super Stickman Golf 2. This is one of Jason Schneider's favorite Apps and after I played it for five minutes, I suddenly realized three hours later why he likes it. It's pretty much a productivity killer that is absolutely fun, challenging and free. In-App purchases are available, but it plays just fine for free. Get your golf on with our App Pick of the Week!

Adobe Photoshop Coming to Chromebooks

If you're a fan of Chromebooks but aren't happy that you can't run Photoshop on them, that is changing very soon. Google recently announced that they are working with Adobe to bring full-on Photoshop to the ultra-budget platform. The only downside I see to this is that when you try rendering a bunch of effects, the process could take a long, long time on the low-end CPUs that power these portable machines. Time will tell how it all works out.

Photoshop for Chrome OS will integrate directly with Google Drive. Which shouldn’t be a huge surprise. But that means that you can store everything in the cloud, which is the entire point of a Chromebook anyways. That’s why we don’t really complain about the 16GB or 32GB of SSD storage on Chromebooks, as that’s basically just for the OS to do it’s thing. There’s no word on whether or not Photoshop will get you some additional Google Drive space, but it would be nice for Google to toss that in there.
