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!

The middle of the week is here, and with it comes some items for you to check out to power through your day. We have a review on the Gigabyte GA-Z87N-WIFI Mini-ITX motherboard, which has some nice features (like onboard WiFi and Bluetooth) for a fairly reasonable price. There are also a couple of articles looking at Apple's new iPhone 6, with one covering everything you need to know about the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and the other examining why there even is an iPhone 6 when the iPhone 6 Plus is available.

If you are in the market for a new case, then we have a couple of items today that should be of great interest to you. There is a review on the Corsair Graphite 380T Mini ITX case, which offers a rather unique shape and style to keep nearly any component you can think of nice and cool. Our other case for the day is a little step up in size, as the Thermaltake Commander G41 mid-tower gets put to the test to see if it has the potential to house your system. The only non-case we have today is a review on the Deepcool Maelstrom 120 AIO liquid CPU cooler, an all-in-one unit that has some nice features to help set it apart from the rest.
