Tt Kenny reacted to Tte Jeff for a blog entry, VENTUS ambidextrous laser gaming mouse review @ Play3r.net
Play3r.net was one of the first to take a look at our VENTUS ambidextrous laser gaming mouse. And boy did they love it. Overall, they gave it a 4.7 out of 5 & and not one, but THREE awards! (including their Editor's Choice, Gold Award, and Value award)
Their review was very comprehensive with both a written and video portion. Covering everything from unboxing, in-use tests, to the software too.

Tt Kenny reacted to Tt Ariel for a blog entry, Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate 360mm Liquid CPU Cooler Review@HiTech Legion
15 September, 2014 - by George Cella
There are always constraints in product development and what is actually possible. While many times, an idea may be profound, it may not be physically possible in the real world. First and foremost, the actual materials to make the idea work need to exist. The idea of a floating transportation board that is non-powered since it is made of a gravity defying element that can bear weight and will not float away may sound great. This idea falls apart when you take into account that an element doesnâ€™t exist. Other times, your idea may step on a patent and may not be legally viable as a result, or at least not financially viable after paying royalties to the patent holder.
Over the last year, we have seen the legalese stunting of development in the CLC market. Since one manufacturer now owns the rights to the â€œpump on the blockâ€ concept, and vaguely on the concept of closed loop in general, we have been watching a one-horse race. Companies marketing these CLCs have had to work within the scope of what the patent holder (and OEM) is producing. With the same basic set of parts to work with, differentiation in the marketplace is becoming more difficult, and differentiation in performance even more difficult. There is only so much difference you can make by changing one 100 cfm fan to another 100 cfm fan, and the RGB LEDs may be a nice touch, but they arenâ€™t helping cool anything.
All in all, I am very impressed with the Water 3.0 Ultimate as a complete package, far more so than I expected to be. I appreciate Thermaltakeâ€™s approach and wish that more vendors would start using it. Balance and taking advantage of a componentâ€™s strengths are key, and Thermaltake gets that. While I still feel that an open loop solution, like the H220-X or XSPC Raystorm kit, is a much better choice at this price point for obvious reasons, when it comes to closed loop, there is no disputing that the Water 3.0 Ultimate is the current top choice. This is not only for its overall performance capabilities, but the fact that it will be a nice quiet everyday solution, as well. For this, the Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate takes home a Hi Tech Legion Gold Award.

Tt Kenny reacted to Tt Ariel for a blog entry, Thermaltake Urban T81 Full-Tower Chassis Review@MODDERS INC.
August 5, 2014 - by Al Shuryan
I have to say this last year has been a fantastic year for full tower cases and the design engineers are gifting the water cooling enthusiast, pro builder, expert builder and overclockers with some products to get very excited about. The Thermaltake Urban T81 is a full-tower water cooling engineered marvel thatâ€™s an affordable competitive alternative to the $300+ cases of 2012/13. These newly designed water cooling cases are something special. The room, use of space, bracket designs, mounting options are giving those serious about water cooling the foundation for some ultimate configurations.
Review Sample Provided by: Thermaltake
Product Name: Thermaltake Urban T81
Be sure to catch some of the MODS the Modders-Inc. Staff have done with this case. There will be a full article about the fun we had with the Staff MOD-OFF at QuakeCon using the Thermaltake Urban T81 case. Weâ€™ve also posted a build log of each of our T81 Mods/Builds.
So, with all these MODS and builds in the Thermaltake Urban T81 I think we have some experience with this product. Itâ€™s built well, has classic features like suicide doors, beautiful looking magnetic front door, filtered intakes on 3 sides, 6 USB ports four 2.0 and two 3.0. Closed the case is very quiet, the dual side suicide doors are a gift to anyone working in their case often and the price shows everyone Thermaltake is serious about getting your attention, business and showing they are enthusiastically devoted to customers whoâ€™s interest is building a good, decent, super or ultimate build.
Modders will take heart in knowing this is built for the MOD, I know, I did it in not just one but I liked this case so much my own personal rig is in one and being modded as I write this article. To me itâ€™s so good, The PUNISHER will become my Modders-Inc. review/test Bench Rig case.
The only thing some might find tight is the space for cable management. Itâ€™s a little tight but not a drawback.
At the time of writing this the Thermaltake Urban T81 can be found at NewEgg for $169
This is definitely a water coolers case. You donâ€™t have to water cool your build to enjoy the room, ascetics and beauty of a case like this. Itâ€™s still a fantastic case even without water cooling but it is feature rich and many are for cooling.
â€œThis is a classic in the making, Builders and Modders REJOICE!â€

Tt Kenny reacted to Tt Ariel for a blog entry, Thermaltake Core V1 Mini-ITX Cube Review@hermitage akihabara
August 1, 2014 - by GDM Editorial Matsueda KiyoshiAkira
Thermaltake new Mini-ITX chassis reviewed by hermitage akihabara in Japan, some part of the content is Google translated as follow:
"Core V1" (Model: CA-1B8-00S1WN-00) cube-type Mini-ITX case that made its debut in the domestic market in about two months or so from the announcement, stated the (tax) 4,980 yen market expected selling price than the "COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2014" initially announced.
Well, whatsoever, the impact is too strong to 4,980 yen market expected selling price excluding tax. That's why, it was a validation of while looking for the price of Nari "shoddy construction" in a corner of the head's for sure. But just finished verification procedures of conventional, big pitfall and this was not found.
The rapid spread of consumer Mini-ITX motherboard, choice of compatible PC case countless. Kind of Cube-type PC case is more compact due in particular. But perfection is also high, none of the "Core V1" is, it means amazing there is that it would be available at 5,000 yen including tax impression cheap. Of Mini-ITX Cube corresponding type PC case "selling chart", before biting into the top, it would not require that much time.
