Adding new fans to a really dirty computer

Installing a couple Artic F12 fans to replace some old, worn out fans is a simple enough task. I thought it might be a nice idea to take you on the trip, through a thick layer of dust.

A look through the innards of my now ageing, but still fairly competent system may be of interest to some.

BenQ turn the tables with the Zowie Zone

ZONE_01BenQ today unveils the ZOWIE ZONE — its complete eSports experience.

It has always been the goal of ZOWIE to provide the best competitive gaming experience, enabling players to find their most comfortable settings effortlessly, putting their focus on their own performance instead of setting up.

After providing players with different gaming gear options, ZOWIE ZONE is the next step in the path to deliver the complete package for competitive gamers.

– Stable

The hardware and software that power ZONE are optimized to offer reliable and consistent in-game performance in competitive gaming titles, ensuring the best conditions for serious gamers instead of the highest benchmark scores.

– Comfortable

Serious players practice for many hours, making it important to consider not only the in-game options but also how they sit in front of the computer. ZONE table provides height adjustment and the display is connected to a highly adjustable arm to allow players to pick their most comfortable setting.

– Easy to Use

ZONE maintains the core principle of plug and play from ZOWIE’s previous products as the click of one button turns the whole system on and ready to use.

– Convenient

Preference is important to gamers but so is convenience. ZOWIE ZONE has easily accessible ports for all required gaming gear to ensure the process of connecting and disconnecting them, which happens regularly for serious gamers, is seamless.

ZONE will advance the convenience to a next level as ZOWIE is currently working on an intuitive UI that enables players to fine tune the audio and monitor settings without pushing monitor buttons and, instead, controlling it all using the keyboard and mouse. This feature will be available to the market at a later stage.

ZOWIE ZONE will only be available for gaming centers. You will be able to get the first-hand experience with ZOWIE ZONE in events we support, starting with DreamHack Leipzig and also in gaming centers spread across the world that focus on competitive gaming. Follow ZOWIE social media accounts or stay turned to our website for more information.

GEAR4 puts military grade protection into the iPad case

GEAR4, the UK’s number one trusted impact protection case brand, today launches its new Buckingham iPad TPU flip case range, featuring D3O – the most advanced shock absorbing technology for enhanced impact protection. The Buckingham case, linked to GEAR4’s British roots, combines modern forms and materials to deliver the ultimate combination of sleek protection. The case is available for iPad mini 4, Air2/Pro 9.7 inch and Pro 12.9 inch.

The D3O® impact technology used in the Buckingham case is in fact so trusted worldwide that it is the same material found in the U.S military combat uniforms, American football helmets and protective gear worn by pro athletes (including Usain Bolt) and extreme sportsmen, such as Olympic ski teams. With these kinds of endorsements, iPad owners can rest assured that they have the most technologically advanced casing available on the market.

D3O® has a unique molecular structure; in standard conditions, the molecules flow freely allowing the material to remain soft and flexible, but on impact lock together to absorb and dissipate the impact energy, which means your device stays safe when dropped. GEAR4 are the first to use an injection moulded grade of D3O® technology to deliver more impact protection per cubic millimetre than other leading materials.

GEAR4 designers combined this unique technology with a functional design featuring a standing option to work in landscape at a desk, table or on a lap and four slots for business or payment cards. There are also two larger slots for important documents and its unique clip closure ensures the device, as well as valuable items, are kept safe whilst not in use.

The Buckingham is available in black with orange, blue and grey trim from www.gear4.com and Carphone Warehouse

Buckingham – iPad Air2/ 9.7″ Pro RRP – £59.99

Buckingham – iPad 12.9″ Pro RRP – £59.99

Buckingham – iPad Mini 4 RRP – £49.99
