The last day of September is here, and with it brings some reviews on various components for your computer. We have a look at the G.Skill Ripjaws4 DDR4-2400 16GB kit, which should provide plenty of performance for those with an Intel X99 system. There is also a review on the Seasonic Platinum Series 1050W and 1200W power supplies, so if you need a lot of juice for a multi-GPU setup, look no further. For those wanting to jump into the world of solid state drives, we have a look at Micron's new M600 line to see how it stacks up to the competition. Lastly, the SteelSeries Siberia Elite Prism headset gets reviewed to see how it compares to the original and how well it can handle your gaming audio.

It is the start of a new week, as well as the last couple days of September, and if you like motherboards then you're in luck today. We have a review on the EVGA X99 Classified motherboard, which packs in a ton of features for those wanting to upgrade to the Intel Haswell-E line of processors. There's also the Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD5H for those who just want a Haswell board, yet aren't going to skimp on the amount of goodies that come with it. For something a little different, and sticking with Intel, the ASRock Q2900-ITX motherboard comes with the Pentium J2900 CPU already installed to make for a solid starting point for an HTPC build. Moving over to AMD, the BIOSTAR A68N-5000 is another ITX motherboard that comes with an AMD A4-5000 APU already integrated. Wrapping things up for today is a look at 20 of the worst PC setups seen over the last month.

NVIDIA has launched its newest king of the hill video card, with the GeForce GTX 980 offering some truly impressive numbers across the board. It runs on the GM204 Maxwell core, which has a maximum TDP of 165W. That is a crazy low wattage for a high-end video card, especially one that is rocking 2048 CUDA cores, 64 ROPs, 128 texture units, 4GB of GDDR5 memory, and 5.2 billion transistors. Core clock speed comes in at 1126MHz, while that 4GB of memory is running at 7000MHz. The cooler is the same style as NVIDIA's recent ones from the GTX 700 cards, yet should still have the same effectiveness as it is a pretty standout model. Enough talking, onward to the reviews!

We have just a couple of items for you to look over on this Thursday, but both should be rather interesting. First up is a look at the ASUS X99-DELUXE motherboard, which is an ethusiast motherboard for those looking to run Intel's new Haswell-E chips. If things like 5-way optimization, Crystal Sound audio, 802.11ac wireless, and plenty more are what you desire, then perhaps this board will do the trick. Our other item for the day is a review on the Western Digital My Passport Wireless, a WiFi enabled portable hard drive that packs 2x2 N MIMO antennas for up to four simultaneous HD streams, plus an SD card offload, USB 3.0 fast charge, and a host of other features.

We have come to the middle of the week, with a nice selection of items to keep you occupied. There is another review on the AMD FX-8370E processor, which is the company's newest refresh of the FX lineup, and one that looks to deliver a pretty nice package. We also have a look at the Scythe Mugen MAX CPU cooler, a rather large model that just may be able to help keep those new AMD and Intel processors from burning a hole in the motherboard. Nokia's Lumia 930 gets put to the test to see how it stacks up to the competition, and considering it's basically the international version of the Lumia Icon, it should do quite well. Lastly one of our affiliates is raising money for a local children's hospital, so please do what you can to support them.

The second day of September brings us some more reviews, including some new products from AMD. We have a review on the refreshed FX CPU lineup, including the FX-9590, the FX-8370, and the FX-8370E. All feature various improvements in hopes of further competing with Intel, the least of which being a price cut for the FX-9000 series parts. There are also a couple of looks at the AMD Radeon R9 285 video card, which is the first Tonga GPU from the company. It has support for DirectX 12, XDMA CrossFire, and better 4K video support, so it could be the new video card to go for, if the performance is right. Wrapping things up for today is the Corsair Graphite 380T case, a rather sweet looking mITX case that could be the perfect home for a portable gaming rig.

There is also a look at the Motorola Moto E smartphone that is aimed squarely at the entry-level crowd with its $130 price. It runs stock Android and features a 4.3" screen, but it hopefully performs admirably enough to be a first smartphone for many.

The middle of the week is here, and with it comes some reviews to check out, including a couple of cases. First up is the Cooler Master HAF Stacker 935 mod-tower, a modular case system that can be built from any of three separate cases. It provides for the ultimate in building potential, as it can be made of various configurations to fit exactly what you need. Our other case is the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe full tower, which is designed to be user and mod friendly thanks to its construction that uses screws instead of rivets. It also has a ten color ambient lighting controller, removable hard drive cages, massive cooling potential, and plenty more you'll have to see in the review. Today's final item is the Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury gaming mouse, the fastest mouse around that should really set you apart from the rest while gaming.

A new day has begun, with plenty of items for you to check out on this Tuesday. We have a review on the Corsair Carbide Spec 01 case, a highly affordable case that still packs in plenty of features for gamers on a tight budget. If you are instead looking for a way to keep your CPU cool, then perhaps the Cooler Master Nepton 280L all-in-one liquid cooler can get the job done. For storage needs, there's the Angelbird SSD wrk 512GB using a Silicon Motion 2246EN controller instead of the more common SandForce controller. Speaking of storage, we have a review on the Thecus N2310 Soho/Home NAS Server, which is a two-bay model perfect for starting your home server. Lastly the ROCCAT Ryos MK Pro mechanical keyboard gets put to the test to see if it should be your next purchase.
