The 10 Best Moments for Computers in 2014 Computers

1 comment Published in computers on 29 December 2014, 10:48 by Andi

As we head into the tail end of December, we figured we'd take a look back at the year and its top moments for Computers. We had some big announcements and events that had us computer monkeys at Mighty Ape HQ giggling like kids during recess. So after some deliberation and serious debate (that may have involved Nerf guns) we came to an agreement on the top 10 Computing moments of the year, and one conclusion:

You certainly can't call 2014 uneventful, that's for sure.



Dawn of the Mini PC Computers

2 comments Published in computers, components, matx and Deepcool on 13 August 2014, 16:34 by Andy

It has become a phenomenon… Mini PC's with the raw power of Rigs double the size, have been springing up all over the place and custom builders have adopted them with arms wide open.

Corsair have the 250D… BitFenix have the Prodigy… Silverstone have the RVZ01

DEEPCOOL is now joining the fray with a bold addition to the field.

Introducing the STEAM CASTLE.

Bright, loud and round, the Steam Castle is capable of housing a MATX Motherboard and is capable of housing 2 x full length graphics cards to run in SLI or CrossFire!

Cooling wise there is space for a 240mm radiator for all those water cooling buffs out there and since the motherboard tray is horizontal there is space for the largest CPU air coolers. On the front there is a 200mm fan and a 120mm on the rear.

There are also 4 very unique extractor fans planted on the top of the case. The built in fan controller allows users to change the colors between red, blue and green. There is also a breathing effect and the LED's can also be turned off whilst the fans remain active.



Gorilla EX - The Second Monkey Computers

Add a comment Published in computers, gorilla rigs, AMD and Benchmarks on 12 August 2014, 16:58 by Ben

The Second Monkey is part of a new custom rig line up called Gorilla EX.

Gorilla EX is made for IT savy gamers, looking for a base build they can customise over time.

The range is designed in the way that none of them come with dedicated graphics cards installed, but are still fully working PC suitable for home or student uses if needed – really though, it wouldn't be putting the 650 watt power supply to good use now would it?

The Second Monkey specifically comes fitted with our favourite AMD A8–6600K APU which gives exceptional performace. You will also find a 128GB SSD with the OS loaded on it to get super fast boot times and loading times in general. There is plenty more space for storage expansion when the time comes.



The Mighty SilverStone Raven Computers

The RAVEN series is famous for its excellent cooling with unconventional designs and the RAVEN RV04 is no exception, as you can see in the image below the Gigabyte GTX 760 graphics card sits upside down inside presenting a spectacular view of the Windforce cooler and SNSV motherboard :)

The exterior of RV04 showcases SilverStones unique design with a one-piece like outer shell that creates a powerful presence on any desktop setting.

Small details also adorn the exterior such as feather-like top elements that act as independent airflow channel for the power supply unit.

This blog might get a bit geeky!

Today we start shipping our new range of enthusiast Gorilla EX Rigs, the first being aptly named The First Monkey

Gorilla EX are intended to be the base for a system that you can improve over time, they come assembled and pre-loaded with the windows 8.1 operating system so you can add wireless, more storage, graphics cards and cooling to the builds easily when you want to.

The First Monkey sits in a versitile Corsair Spec-01 mid tower, with plenty of space and power to do some pretty cool builds. We can add 120mm LED fans with fancy controllers, wireless and solid state storage later – right now we start off with a quick look at graphics card options!



Super Stylish SilverStone Raven Chassis Computers

More awesome components have arrived!

Finally with us in NZ is the latest Raven RV05 chassis with SilverStone's u­niquely cool styling touches and an awesome 90 degree motherboard mounting system we love almost as much as their 180 degree one :)

Included with this stealthy chassis are two of the latest Air Penetrator fans with three speed switches and SilverStone have made nice design choices yet again such as externally removable dust filters (with cool ravens on them) and tool-less panels.

SilverStone Magnetic Dust Filter - a 2 week test Computers

Add a comment Published in computers, Silverstone, 120mm, Gaming Rigs and Dust Filter on 24 June 2014, 12:09 by Ben

Two weeks ago I stuck one of the new magnetized dust filters (quite literally) on the front of my gaming PC and put it on the floor, the results were obvious!

In that small amount of time the SilverStone filter picked up enough dust to make me want to kit out my entire rig with them.

These neat little dust filters have embedded magnets in the frame so it can be effortlessly attached to any steel chassis without tools but if you want you can also attach it to your fans via the screw points.



Wow, that's some impressive RAM! Computers

Add a comment Published in computers, gorilla rigs, LED, Watch Dogs and Crucial on 13 June 2014, 16:01 by Ben

Inside our Watch Dogs Gorilla Rig is the aptly named Tactical Tracer RAM and it's got some pretty awesome tricks up it's sleeve!

In addition to the LED light controls, this tool also lets you enjoy real-time temperature monitoring, so you can keep tabs on your high-performance memory. The Crucial Ballistix M.O.D. utility allows you to view uptime, voltages, and set alarms for temperatures, making it one of the most customisable, responsive modules you’ll find.

We used Red/Green in our build but they also come in a blue – check out the video below to see some of the different colours and settings :)
