We are here at the end of the week with some reviews to help you welcome the weekend. There is a look at the GIGABYTE Champion Series X99-Gaming 5P motherboard, which has enhanced overclocking features and is also part of the company's G1 Gaming line to appeal to gamers. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt arrived earlier this week, so if you're wondering how it performs on various hardware, we have an article for you. We have something a little different, as the 2015 Chevrolet Trax LTZ gets checked out to see what kind of technology it offers and how it drives. A new case mod based on the Corsair 900D gets shown off, with a sweet looking reservoir and solid tubing. Ending for the day is a podcast covering the latest news and reviews from the past week.

The week is drawing to a close, but before it does, we have some items for you to check out. There is a review of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X, the massive and current top of the line offering from the green team. We have a look at the Supermicro SuperChasis S5 mid-tower case, which offers a good look, but may not hold up for the pricetag. Zalman's ZM-GM4 Knossos gaming mouse gets put to the test to see how it competes. If you need something to put that new mouse on or any others, perhaps the Kingston HyperX FURY Pro gaming mouse pad is the one for you.

The final day of the week is here at last, and it brings several items for you to check out. There is a look at the MSI GS30 Shadow, which is both a laptop and a Gaming Dock that gives a much needed graphical boost using whatever discrete graphics card you wish. We also have a review on the QNAP TVS-863+ AMD Turbo vNAS, a home storage solution packing some AMD hardware, including a 64-bit quad-core 2.4GHz SoC. A new case mod is highlighted that uses the Corsair 900D and a sweet blue and black theme. Lastly there's a podcast covering all the latest news and reviews from the past week.
