Friday is here, bringing with some items for you to check out before the weekend hits. We have a review of the GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-SOC FORCE motherboard, one of the most advanced motherboards around with a ton of features, from 4-Way SLI support to an M.2 slot and even a plethora of overclocking options. If you happen to have a Thermaltake power supply and want more options with it, perhaps the Thermaltake Smart Power Management Platform with its electricy tracker, cost tracker, temperature alerts, and more can help you get the most out of your system. For those looking for a new phone without a huge budget, the Meizu m3 Note, featuring a 5.5" screen and 1080p IPS LCD panel, is an enticing option. We have a case mod that takes the Phanteks EVOLV case and spruces it up with a unique honeycomb-style pattern and more. Finishing things off is a new podcast looking back at the latest news and reviews from the past week.

NVIDIA's latest card is here, as the GeForce GTX 1060 has arrived. This is a more budget friendly card than the other two Pascal products, yet it still contains a ton of performance. It should get up near or over the GTX 980 in most games, while also costing about $100 less. The Founders Edition is the new reference model from NVIDIA, with several reviews of it to show just what it can do. If you're in the market for a new video card and don't have a ton of money to spend, then the GP106-based GeForce GTX 1060 just might be the solution for you. It's hard to pass up a card with 6GB of GDDR5 and a $299 price for the Founders Edition, or $249 from AIB partners.

Another week is heading to a close, but not before we have some items for you to check out. There is a look at a pair of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 cards in SLI to see what they're capable of when working together. If you want to get into a small build, like maybe with an SoC such as Intel Braswell, then the BIOSTAR J3160MD motherboard is for you, as it features a fanless design for the SoC and a PCIe x16 slot for a video card. To house everything for a new build, the be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 case looks positively stunning with the aluminum, steel, and glass construction, plus the insides are highly customizable. For those on the go, the Mach Xtreme MX-Barium USB 3.1 Type-C flash drive can be the answer, especially since it works with both USB 3.0 and 3.1 and includes fast read/write performance.

A new week is here, with several items to kick it off right. We have a review of the Intel Skull Canyon NUC6i7KYK, a gaming-centric NUC with Iris Pro Graphics 580 and a relatively high starting price that makes this more of a serious machine. For keeping a CPU cool, the Scythe Fuma cooler gets put to the test to see how well it performs. If storage is what you need, then perhaps the OCZ RD400 512GB PCIe MVM2 M.2 SSD, with its 2600MB/s read speed and 1600MB/s write speeds, is the answer. There is a look at a different kind of case to hold everything, as the Primochill WetBench Test Bench case is an open air model ideal for swapping gear in and out quickly.

Friday and the end of the week are here at long last, with a few items for you to check out. We have a review on the Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 Gaming video card, featuring a triple fan cooler and a factory overclock to power through whatever games you throw at it. Speaking of video cards, it appears the power draw issues the AMD RX 480 were facing have been fixed in a driver update, but it also gives raise to the fact it could have been avoided if an 8-pin PCIe connector was used instead of 6-pin. Wrapping things up for today and the week is a look at the Cooler Master MasterBox 5 case, a budget-friendly model with multiple internal configurations for you to experience.

We have a look at the NZXT Manta case, a uniquely shaped model that promises silent operation for a mini-ITX build. There's an article taking a look at how 3-Way and 4-Way SLI won't be enabled for gaming on the GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. If you need a way to keep your CPU cool, perhaps the EKWB EK-XLC Predator 360 expandable water cooling kit is what you're after. For those looking for a new router, the Linksys EA7500 AC1900 MU-MIMO Gigabit Router might be the solution. If you just need a new peripheral or two for your system, we have you covered. We have reviews on the Razer BlackWidow X Chroma mechanical keyboard, the Corsair M65 PRO RGB and Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum gaming mice, the Corsair VOID Surround 7.1 Channel Gaming Headset, and the Razer Turret wireless lapboard. The Turret features a compact design with a conjoined wireless keyboard and mouse pad, as well as a small mouse, for some casual couch gaming that doesn't take up a lot of space.

A new day is here, with Tuesday bringing several items along the way for you to check out. We have a look at the Fractal Design Define Nano S Mini-ITX case, a tiny version of the Define S model that still has plenty of features and a striking good look for the size. If you need a big power supply, maybe the Thermaltake ToughPower DPS G 850W PSU, with a monitoring app to check usage and system status, is the one for you. Or for something smaller, the Corsair SF Series 600W PSU provides more than enough juice for a small form factor case. To help control your games better, the Corsair K65 RGB RAPIDFIRE mechanical gaming keyboard, featuring the new Cherry MX Speed switches with a shorter acutation distance, could be the one to get. You can pair that keyboard with the Corsair Lapdog Gaming Control Center, a convenient and comfortable way to game on your couch or from your favorite recliner. There are a couple of other items to check out, too, such as the Braven BRV-X Bluetooth speaker and the HTC 10 smartphone, so be sure to hit up everything below.
