We have a good number of items to get to today, so there should be no shortage of things for you to read. There is a look at the HIS Radeon R9 290 iPower IceQ X2 OC video card, with a factory overclock and a custom cooler to get you into the best possible looking game right away. There is another take on the Phanteks Enthoo Pro case, a more affordable entry that doesn't skimp on the features. If you need plenty of storage for your home network, then perhaps the Thecus N7510 7 Bay NAS is the product for you. For the watercooling crowd, we have a review on the XSPC Raystorm D5 Photon RX480 V3 Watercooling Kit, which includes everything you need to get started. Lastly there's a look at the HTC Desire 816 smartphone, which is a mid-range phone packing some high-end features.

It is the start of another week, which means new items for you to look over. We have a review on the Cougar MX300 case to see how well this fairly inexpensive model can hold all of your components. The BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z97WE motherboard has plenty of interesting featurs to help set it apart from the crowd, and it gets put to the test to show what it is capable of. We also have a few other items for your viewing pleasure, like the possibility that Intel is interested in AMD's Mantle API, a guide to taking fireworks photos, and a new podcast.
