Another day is here, with several items along the way. We have a review of the Radeon RX 550 and the Pentium G4560 to see how the two do together and whether it has the potential to be a winning combo for the eSports crowd. The EVGA CLC 280 water cooler gets reviewed to see what it can do for your CPU when you start to push it. If you're after more control for your games, then maybe the Corsair GLAIVE RGB Gaming Mouse is the solution, with its high DPI and customizable side panels. For audio, the Bloody M660P Gaming Headset is reviewed to hear what the addition of an inline mic has to offer over the typical boom mic. Wrapping things up is a look at the Tesoro Zone Balance Gaming Chair, the company's first chair that looks to hit all the right spots.

The first week of May is nearly in the books, with several articles to help end it on a high note. We have a massive battle between the GeForce GTX 1060 and Radeon RX 580 to see which one comes out on top in order to be worthy of your dollar. There's a review of the Anidees AI Crystal Cube Lite case, featuring thick tempered glass panels and support for plenty of air and water cooling. For some power needs, the Zalman Acrux Series 1000W Platinum PSU gets tested to show what it can bring to your system. Wrapping things up is a new case mod with a Gears of War 4 focus that looks pretty dang sweet.
