SilverStone Tundra Series TD02-Slim AIO Liquid Cooler Review

Conclusion

The Tundra TD02-Slim was an interesting product to test. The installation was simple and straight-forward, the unit looks good (the hoses look firm and clean, the Silverstone logo and the LED lights are a nice touch) and the product performed better than we expected a smaller AIO liquid cooling unit to do. That being said, we feel that the Tundra TD02-Slim is best suited for cases that require a smaller cooling unit and that those of you with larger cases may be better served to look into other cooling options. Listed at $85.99 on Amazon at the time of this review, the Tundra TD02-Slim provides great value for its size and is an excellent pound for pound option for meeting your AIO liquid cooling needs when space is a factor. Overall, the TD02-Slim is a unique and versatile AIO cooler but does not offer the greatest cooling capacity, due to this we have awarded it the Bjorn3D Silver Bear Award.

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.

Crucial P5 Plus 2TB

The Crucial P5 Plus is the successor the P5 that Crucial launched last year and is the first PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD from the company. The latest model dropped the 256GB model, so the starting available capacity for the P5 Pro is 500GB. Additionally, the drive is also available in 1TB and a new storage capacity of 2TB model. The P54 Plus is priced similar to the P5 though there is a slight bump in the price where drive is retailed at $107.99(500GB), $179.99(1TB), and $367.99(2TB). The 2TB model is definitely a welcome addition and if we judge by the price per gigabyte, the 1TB model would be the most economical option. Despite the slight bump in the price, the P5 Plus are still priced competitively against its competitors. The question is, just how well would the performance backing it up? We shall find it out today.
