RaidMax LP-6100E 500W Power Supply Review
The LP-6100E is rated for 500 Watts and includes features such as overvoltage and overcurrent protection, inrush current protection, and FCC Class B, CE EMI standards. The power supply features two UV sensitive clear 80mm fans. The fans are a ball bearing design and are each protected by a gold fan guard. Unlike some power supplies, which have an L-shaped dual fan configuration, with air being drawn in from the base of the power supply and out the back, the Raidmax unit has an inline solution

RaidMax PS-500W Black Anodized PSU
The clear fans look good with the black aluminum but it would have been nice to see some fancier LED fans to enhance the appearance. The wire mesh also looks good but unfortunately, they only included it on the Main 20pin Power wires leading to the motherboard. It may not be on any of the other leads however, I was thrilled to see the sleeving goes all the way up the cable, through the eyelet and into the PSU which gives it a very clean look. I opened the PSU up to take a peek inside and I found that all the components looked well designed and organized. The large heat sink was a nice feature to see, as was the clear tubing placed around the fan wiring to protect them from heat

Cooler Master ATC 201B-SX2 case
Today we're going to take a look at the Cooler Master ATC 201B-SX2 ATX case. It's an all aluminum case that is light in weight and a joy to work with. I opted to use this case for my new dual processor system and decided to write up a quick review of what it was like and how it performed. It's not a cheap case by any means but hey - you do get what you pay for

Icemat, The Black
When it comes to achieving the ultimate response time, the right choice of mousepad is key and should not be overlooked. Many people fail to realize how important your input is as well as your output specs. When aiming the cursor feels like a chore, something needs to change. Either the mouse needs to be upgraded to something a little more sensitive, or the mousepad is the source of slowdown. I will be exploring the Icemat, The Black, the dark brother of the original clear Icemat
