Friday is here at last, bringing an end to the week and just about the end of April. Before it does end, we have some items for you to check out, including LG's new V10 smartphone. This 5.7" model features Android 5.1, 64GB of storage, 4GB of RAM, a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 CPU, and one impressive camera, with the phone tested to see how this flagship model performs against the competition. A new case mod is highlighted that is packed to the absolute brim with hardware, water cooling components, and has more than enough monitors, fans, and lights to make just about anybody's jaw drop.

The week and April are both nearly at an end, but not before we have a few items for you to check out today. We have a review on the AMD A10-7890K APU, the company's fastest APU yet that won't break the bank, as it carries a $150 price tag and a 4.1GHz base clock speed. For some memory needs, there's a look at the G.SKILL Trident Z 32GB 3200MHz DDR4 kit, bringing a ton of speed and capacity for those on Z170 or X99 systems. Housing everything requires a case, so maybe the Thermaltake Versa N21, a stylish mid-tower model, is the perfect solution.

Wednesday is here, with a few items to help get you over the middle of the week. There is a review of the NZXT Manta Mini-ITX case, an unusual looking model that is tiny, yet should be big enough to fit a ton of hardware inside thanks to its outward curves. To help keep things cool, perhaps the CRYORIG M9i CPU Cooler, with its budget-friendly price and tower-style design, is the best solution for those needing just a little bit of cooling boost. If a new keyboard is what you need, then the Corsair K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE, with its new Cherry MX Speed switches, just might get your gaming to the next level.

St. Patrick's Day is here, where everyone is a little bit Irish, and where we have plenty of items for you to check out before any celebrations. There is a review on the NZXT Manta Mini-ITX case, a small case that can still fit two 280mm radiators and plenty of hardware inside, while still looking quite good outside. A look at AMD's upcoming GPU roadmap from the Capsaicin press event provides some insight into what the company has planned for the future. We have a look at the NVIDIA GameWorks 1.3 update and some of the items to expect in it. If you need a new way to get online, perhaps the Synology RT1900ac Router, with its dual-band 2.4GHz/5GHz frequencies and three MIMO antennas to help get everyone connected within reach. We wrap things up with a review on the Native Union JUMP Cable, a 2-in-1 charging cable and portable battery booster.
