The middle of the week is here, with several items along the way to get you through the day. There's a look at the Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ITX case, a small yet striking case with its black exterior and red interior to set it apart from the crowd. For some power needs, we have a review on the EVGA 750W GQ power supply, which is a budget model for those needing a solid PSU without breaking the bank. If you need a new way to control your games, perhaps the Ozone Neon Precision Laser Mouse is the one for you, with its 6400DPI and eight programmable buttons. To help hear your games, we have a review of the GAMDIAS EROS ELITE EQ headset, which has 7.1 surround sound and an attractive price. Ending things for today is a way to spruce up your mechanical keyboard with the Hot Keys Project Artisan Keycaps, providing a bit of style and flair to an otherwise typical keyboard look.

A new week begins with some items for you to check out, starting with the Scythe Ninja 4 SCNH-4000 CPU cooler. This cooler is a tower-style heat sink that may seem massive, yet can help lower system noise thanks to a quiet fan. We also have the QNAP TS-453A 4-bay QTS-Ubuntu Combo NAS, which can work as a home server or full on media center thanks to Ubuntu. Our final item for today is the Dell XPS 13 laptop, updated at the end of last year with a Skylake CPU, USB Type C with Thunderbolt 3 support, and plenty more to try and make this laptop the one to get.

The end of the week has arrived, but before the weekend hits, we have a couple items for you to check out. There's a look at the Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum RGB Mechanical Keyboard, which uses the company's own Romer-G switches and a fairly clean look to deliver a keyboard that should appeal to nearly everyone. Our other item is a new case mod that forgets the case and builds it into something you can mount directly on your wall. It still has all the components necessary, including a GTX 980 and a full water cooling setup, but in a fully exposed design.

M is a wireless keyboard targeted at gamers on the go with support tablets, Android, and more. The My Passport Ultra Metal Edition packs 1TB of storage into a sleek aluminum case.

The middle of the week is here, bringing with it several items to help get you through the day. We start with a review of the ASUS X99-M WS motherboard, an mATX version of the Workstation line with support for Haswell-E processors and USB 3.1. On the AMD side, we have the BIOSTAR A68N-5200 motherboard, which places an A6-5200 APU on the motherboard directly from the start, giving you a headstart on that low-powered PC. If you just need something to hold your gear, perhaps the be quiet! Silent Base 600 case is the one for you. For those needing a way to better hear their games, the Aftershokz Gamez wireless gaming headset, with its unique design and dual noise canceling microphones, could be the solution.

We have a look at the Corsair Carbide 400Q case, a new model that follows along a more traditional layout than the company's other new case.

A look at the amount of VRAM on cards and how much you really need should prove an interesting read, especially in the war for more VRAM.

The middle of the week is here, with just a couple of items to help you out as we draw ever closer to Christmas. There is a review on the MSI Z170A SLI Plus motherboard that has two shielded PCIe slots for video cards, and despite the name, you can run two AMD cards in CrossFireX if you choose. It also has USB 3.1, an M.2 slot, six SATA 6Gbps ports, and a price that is sure to appeal to many gamers on a budget. We also have a look at the best monitors of 2015, so whether you're in the market for 4K, Ultrawide, an enthusiast-level monitor, or just something that won't break the bank (or maybe something that will), you're covered in this guide.

A new day begins with some more potential gift ideas, either for you to get for yourself or others to get for you. There is a review on the SilverStone TD03 Slim AIO Liquid Cooler, a super thin CPU cooler that could be perfect for builds where space is at a premium. If you need a way to broadcast your tunes on the go, perhaps the Sound Blaster Roar 2 portable Bluetooth speaker is for you. On the laptop and tablet side of things, we have a look at the Microsoft Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 to see just what kind of advancements each one offers.
