Wow, it’s been a busy month here at Go! Gaming Giant when it comes to Hardware Reviews. Last month saw not only some common staples in the Go! Gaming Giant Line-Up, such as Mice and Keyboards, but also saw the first review for several different pieces of tech, such as; Water Coolers, PC Memory, CPU’s, Case Fans, and even Mouse Pads.
So without further ado, let’s just jump into the Review Round-Up for the month of June.
June 11 — Thermaltake Theron Mouse
Overall the Tt eSPORTS Theron is an excellent gaming mouse. The design quality, build quality, and functionality are all top notch. When I initially heard a few years back that Thermaltake was going to start building gaming peripherals, I kind of scratched my head.. (granted this was before Corsair or Cooler Master started doing it too) But after using the Tt eSPORTS Theron, I get it.
June 13 — Thermaltake Ladon Mouse Pad
Overall, there isn’t a whole lot you can do with a mouse pad.. It has only one sole purpose, and this is to make your mouse have the best tracking possible, and in this regard, the Ladon is perfect, as long as you’re using a Thermaltake mouse.
June 15 — Thermaltake Challenger Pro Keyboard
The Thermaltake Challenger Pro is like Dr.Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. For gaming it is excellent, one of the best gaming keyboards I have used. But for typing (which I spend an awful lot of time doing) I found it to be flat out bad.
June 18 — Corsair H80 Water Cooler
If you’re looking to make that jump to water cooling, this is definitely the way to go. With the system being entirely self-contained, and having everything you need included, this is an excellent water cooling setup.
June 20 — Das Professional S Keyboard
Overall this is hands-down the best keyboard I have ever typed on. Sure there are better options for gamers out there. In fact if you’re looking for specifically a gaming keyboard, feel free to browse my reviews of other great keyboards. But for those of you who spend just as much time typing as I do during a day — do yourself a favor and pick one of these Professional S keyboards up — it’s worth the price.
June 24 — Crucial Ballistix DDR3-2000Mhz Memory
The Crucial Ballistix Elite memory set is damn powerful. Most will tell you to just buy a set of 1600Mhz memory with tight timings, and this is fine, but you can buy memory like this, which is made for 2000Mhz at 1.65V and then just lower the frequency down, which will allow you to achieve tighter timings. With memory it’s all about finding the right balance between frequency speed and timings, and with the Crucial Ballistix Elite, you can find that sweet spot with relatively little work.
June 27 — AMD FX-6200 CPU
Is the FX-6200 Fast? Yes it is. Is it Intel fast? No. Most people know this, but for those of you who don’t, I’ll make it simple. If you want the fastest CPU on the planet, go buy an Intel chip. If you want performance that can be overclocked near stock Intel, then go with AMD.
June 29 — Noctua NF-F12 Case Fans
The performance, the build quality, the innovative designs that Noctua put into these babies — it all reveals the same thing — Noctua is really really good at what they do. I understand that many of you are apprehensive about spending $27 a piece on case fans, shoot I know I would be, the fact of the matter is that these are not necessities, but instead these are commodities that are worth every penny.
