CoolMAX 550W Aluminum with Trilight LED fan Review
Now that you know that there are three fans in this thing you are probably thinking: "Man! That must be loud!" So that is why we have a little switch located on the back of the PSU (rear of the case) with three settings, auto, middle, and low. On auto the fans will adjust to whatever speed they need for better cooling, this is the more quiet setting you can select, then there is the low, fans run at higher RPM than auto, still not loud at all, then there is the third setting: middle, fans run at their highest speed, moving a lot of air, still very low noise levels

Iiyama 18.1" LCD Monitor Review
In my opinion this is a very good monitor, the only thing letting it down is the response rate. If iiyama could lower it then I would whole heartedly recommend this monitor. For now though, this monitor only gets 8/10, with recommendations for office use, some light game playing and for use in a PC with a TV card.

LCD guide
One of the must-haves this year for your case is a nice 4 x 20 LCD. Anything smaller is just a bit to tiny to be seen clearly, and anything bigger doesn't really fit well into 1 drive bay. There a few different places you can buy LCD’s from; some better than others. Matrix Orbital is pretty much regarded as the leaders in the market at this current point in time. Kustom PCs sell a select few of the matrix orbital range in the UK so you can save on shipping costs. You can buy direct from Matrix Orbital in Canada but the postage and packing kind of bumps up the price a little bit. Another place to look at is Crystalfontz - they have some nice displays but I have never used them personally..

Tocools Novasonic Cpu cooler Review
There is a bunch of coolers out on the market. How can a normal user figure out which one to buy? How can they figure out the noise/air ratio and get the best cooler for overclocking? Well thanks to the companies that send out their products to our sites. Toocols sent me their Novasonic Cpu cooler which we will look a little closer at and compare it to some other coolers I have reviewed earlier. I will also review Tocools p4 cooler in a later point.
