The end of the week is here, with several items helping you welcome in the weekend. There is another look at the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Founders Edition video card, showing off what the budget-friendly model in the Pascal line has to offer. If you're after storage, we have two different options for you. There is a review on the Intel SSD DC P3520, a 2TB model bringing 3D NAND to a more affordable price point. The other storage option is for even more space, as the ASUSTOR AS6204T 4-bay NAS can handle a huge amount of space for its role as a home server, multimedia center, or anything else you might have in mind. In the mobile world, the HUAWEI Mate 8 smartphone gets reviewed to see how this phablet with its relatively unknown SoC performs. Wrapping things up is a new case mod that takes the Corsair Carbide Series 600C case and turns it into something even more stunning.

The week is drawing to a close, but we still have time to go, with a couple of reviews to help you out. There is a look at the ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 Turbo 6GB video card, a reference-style card (complete with blower-type cooler) that offers an affordable experience backed by ASUS' warranty and quality. If you're after a rather unique case, maybe the Thermaltake Core P3 case, with its build-it-yourself design and stunning looks, is for you. We wrap up with a podcast covering the latest news and reviews from the past week.

The middle of the week is upon us, as are several items to get you through it. We have a look at the AMD's new Zen CPU architecture and what we can expect from the company's latest and greatest line. There is a review of the Thermaltake Water 3.0 Riing RGB 240 Liquid CPU Cooler, an all-in-one kit packing a 240mm radiator and even a smart fan controller to keep the included 120mm fans working as needed. If you're after a new control method for your computer, maybe the SteelSeries Rival 700 Gaming Mouse, with its first-of-a-kind tactile feedback system, is for you. Wrapping things up is a review of the HTC One X9, a mid-range phone in terms of hardware, but maybe not in terms of price.

NVIDIA's latest card is here, as the GeForce GTX 1060 has arrived. This is a more budget friendly card than the other two Pascal products, yet it still contains a ton of performance. It should get up near or over the GTX 980 in most games, while also costing about $100 less. The Founders Edition is the new reference model from NVIDIA, with several reviews of it to show just what it can do. If you're in the market for a new video card and don't have a ton of money to spend, then the GP106-based GeForce GTX 1060 just might be the solution for you. It's hard to pass up a card with 6GB of GDDR5 and a $299 price for the Founders Edition, or $249 from AIB partners.

Another Friday is here, with July reaching its halfway point. We have some items for you to check out, including a review on the RIOTORO PRISM CR1280 RGB full tower case. This case is from a relatively new company, but it looks to hit all the notes in terms of style and features a case should have to hold all your gear. There's a look at the Samsung EVO+ 256GB microSD card, which can read and write at 90MB/s to boost your camera, smartphone, or tablet. If you want even more storage for your computer, then the LaCie Porsche Design Desktop Drive is the one for you, as it offers up to 8TB of space over a USB 3.1 Type-C connection. Wrapping things up is a podcast covering the latest news and reviews from the past week.

Another week is heading to a close, but not before we have some items for you to check out. There is a look at a pair of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 cards in SLI to see what they're capable of when working together. If you want to get into a small build, like maybe with an SoC such as Intel Braswell, then the BIOSTAR J3160MD motherboard is for you, as it features a fanless design for the SoC and a PCIe x16 slot for a video card. To house everything for a new build, the be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 case looks positively stunning with the aluminum, steel, and glass construction, plus the insides are highly customizable. For those on the go, the Mach Xtreme MX-Barium USB 3.1 Type-C flash drive can be the answer, especially since it works with both USB 3.0 and 3.1 and includes fast read/write performance.
