Up first today is a look at a two bay network attached storage offering from Synology targeted at home and small business users. Tech Spot evaluates how Windows 8 has changed since release, revealing what it likes and what could still use some work. PC Perspective takes a look at an XSPC watercooling kit that is compatible with both Intel and AMD platforms, complete with a reservoir and a 240mm radiator. We finish out our roundup for the day with three reviews for cards in the AMD RX series of video cards. Two cards are from Sapphire, the R9 270X Vapor X and the R9 280X Toxic. The Asus Matrix R9 280X Platinum is the final card of the day and continues with the theme of massive after market cooling options.
