A new week and a new year is upon us, with some items along the way to kick things off. 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. We have a preview on the Polaris architecture from AMD, giving us a hint at what to expect when the cards arrive later this year. Locked Intel Skylake parts recently have been shown to overclock, and now it seems the Xeon Skylake parts may follow suit, too. For those needing to keep their CPU cool, there's a look at the Gelid Antarctica heat sink. Or if you want some options, we have a list of the best AiO coolers from 2015. 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. Wrapping things up is a review on the Toshiba 16GB TransMemory U401 USB 2.0 flash drive.
