A new day is here, with the Steam Summer Sale officially kicking off and several items for you to check out here. If you need more storage, and let's face it, those games require it, we have you covered today. There is a look at the OCZ RD400 PCIe NVMe SSD, a 512GB model that can fit in either a PCIe slot with adapter or right in the M.2 slot on a motherboard. For even more storage, we have a review on the Crucial MX300 750GB SSD, a more conventional drive that makes use of 3D TLC NAND flash that won't break the bank despite the massive capacity. The final storage look are a pair of drives from Silicon Power, with both the 120 and 240GB models from the S55 line put to the test. Wrapping things up is a podcast covering the latest news and reviews from the week.

Summer came in with a flash yesterday, or just kept doing its heat thing depending on where you are, so if you're staying cool indoors and need to pass the time, we're here to help. There is a review on the AVEXIR Raiden 32GB 2666MHz C15 DDR4 Memory Kit, which feature a unique heat spreader to really set your build apart. If you need some storage on the go, perhaps the Western Digital My Passport Wireless Pro 2TB fits the bill to backup your data without the need for wires. However, for those needing just a little bit of storage on the go, plus some added AES protection, the Kingston DataTraveler Vault Privacy 3.0 USB flash drive might be for you.

For those needing some control over their games, the Bloody B720 Light Strike Keyboard, with its unique mechanical switch style that uses infrared sensors, could be on your list.

The first full week of June is drawing to a close, but before it does we have plenty of items for you to check out. 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.

We have another look at the Intel Core i7-6950X, the 10-core Broadwell-E monster that offers some of the best performance yet for one of the highest prices you'll pay for a single component. For some storage needs, the QNAP TS-531P quad-core business-class NAS can fit five HDDs/SSDs inside for some massive storage potential if that's what you're after. We have a look back at 20 of the worst PC setups seen during the month of May, so if you need some laughs, this is the place.

NVIDIA's latest behemoth, the GeForce GTX 1080, is nearly here, with the NDA lifting today to show us all what the new flagship video card delivers. It runs on the Pascal architecture and the GP104 core, packing 2560 CUDA cores, 160 texture units, and 64 ROPs. It also has 8GB of Micron's new GDDR5X memory running at a 10Gbps data rate. The GP104 core itself is clocked at 1607MHz with a boost clock of 1733MHz. It should make for some impressive performance, especially once you start overclocking and take the card up and over the 2GHz barrier. The GeForce GTX 1080 is available in a Founders Edition card straight from NVIDIA, the altered name for the reference cards, with its board partners offering a range of options for a lower price. Today we have the Founders Edition cards for you, so check them out below to see what the GTX 1080 is all about.

Tuesday is here, bringing with it several items to help keep your work going in the right direction. We have a review on the Corsair K70 RGB Rapidfire Mechanical Keyboard, which makes use of the new Cherry MX Speed switches for some short actuation distance and light actuation force. For a different mechanical keyboard, there's a look at the Fnatic Gear Rush G1 with its Cherry MX switches and LED backlighting. We have another take on the HyperX Cloud Revolver Gaming Headset to see if it can live up to its expectations. If you're looking for a new game to play, perhaps Battleborn and its MOBA/FPS hybrid style is for you. Finishing things up for today is an article looking at what it's like to go a full month without a smartphone.

The first week of May is nearly in the books, with several items to help get you to the weekend. There is a review on the Corsair SF600, an SFX power supply that is ideal for those using an SFX case and still want a ton of power. For those needing more control in their games, maybe the Fnatic FLICK G1 Gaming Mouse, with its optical 5,000 DPI sensor and Omron switches, is the perfect one for you to take your gaming to the next level. A new case mod is highlighted that is an extremely clean, white and purple design (perfect for Kansas State fans) that started life as a Thermaltake Core X31 case. Wrapping things up is a podcast covering the latest news and reviews from the past week.

A new day is here, with several items for you to check out as the week draws closer to an end. There is a review of the AMD A10-7860K and A8-7670K APUs, a refresh of its Kaveri line with faster clock speeds and better power efficiency. We have a look at the Zalman Z9 Neo White case, a budget-friendly model that comes packed with fans, extensive hard drive support, and the ability to use long video cards, among other features. To keep a CPU cool, perhaps the Cooler Master MasterLiquid Pro 240 AIO cooler that uses a dual chamber design to help improve cooling performance and product life is the answer. If you just need fans in general to keep things cool, then maybe the Noctua NF-A14 industrialPPC-24V-2000 IP67 PWM Fans will help.
