The first week of December is nearly in the books, but not before we have some reviews for you to check out. There is a look at the NZXT H440 Razer Edition case, which is designed in part with Razer to deliver a unique experience. We also have a look at the new Ubisoft game The Crew and how it performs on various video cards. For something a little different, there's the ROCCAT Apuri Active USB hub, which adds four USB 2.0 ports and even a mouse bungee to your desk. We have a rather unique case mod called the ASUS ROG Table and Rig, and you really have to see it to believe it. Wrapping things up is a podcast covering the latest news and reviews from the past week.

The week is drawing to a close, but we have no shortage of reviews to help get you through it. We have a review on the ASUS Maximus VII Impact motherboard, which is a feature-rich product in a Mini-ITX format. If you're on a tight budget yet still want a Mini-ITX build, then perhaps the ECS Z97I-DRONE is the one for you. For anyone needing a case, there's the BitFenix Pandora, which is a slim Micro-ATX model that could be right at home in a home theater setting. The Rosewill RGB80 mechanical keyboard gets reviewed to see how it can handle gaming and office work. There's a look at the Tt eSPORTS BAHAMUT external sound card for all your audio needs, especially if that means 5.1 virtual surround. Wrapping things up today is an article examining how to reinvent the digital pen, as well as one looking over the recent ASUS Open Overclocking Cup.
