This is the Seagate Ironwolf 14TB ST14000VN008 HDD drive, its highest capacity storage drive with 7,200 RPM. Apart from its elusive pricing, it would attract some type of users who will need 12.7 TB formatted mechanical drive in a single package. All of this while maintaining its MTBF lifespan.
The GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1650 OC 4GB is one of GTX 1650 variants it offers. While the base clock is the same as the reference spec, the boost clock has a minuscule 45 MHz bump. As expected, this is an entry-level graphics card, with a larger fan shroud with aluminium heatsink within the GPU.
What I am reviewing is the Seagate BarraCuda Pro ST14000DM001 HDD, a 14 TB drive which has a spindle of eight discs and 256MB buffer. This is the largest storage capacity drive you can get your hands on.
The gaming headset market is booming these days. Manufacturers like Kingston with their Hyper X Cloud series or the Corsair Void pro series ensure that there are a plethora of gaming headset options for the avid gamer. The MH751 is a Takstar Pro 82 headphone (which has two variants-28 ohms and 32ohms) modified for Cooler Master. Takstar is an OEM that makes headsets for a lot of brands and are quite known for their good sounding products. There also exists a Cooler Master MH752 which has a built-in 7.1 USB DAC which is good for those who don’t have good quality sound cards.
Cooler Master has been in peripheral business for a long time, especially with regularly releasing newer keyboards and headsets. The Cooler Master CK550 and the MH751 are two good examples. The gaming peripheral market is over-crowded and yet it manages to sell. The last mouse I’ve reviewed from Cooler Master is the Alcor and the Mizar. I loved the Alcor optical mouse. It was an agile mouse with all the switches places in reachable areas and I wanted more was the grips the Laser mouse Mizar. This wasn’t the only brand that had this point of view at the time since everyone was in the race to push laser sensors and the next best thing. I never really understood why optical sensors were considered less premium to justify lesser premium features when it was hassle-free, compared to laser sensors of certain makes that had quirks that took some firmware and sensor updates implemented by the manufacturer. Logitech was one of the gaming peripheral makers that was the first to jump aboard with its MX series. For some reason, it ditched the MX branding under G series- and now brought it back.
