  1. Dude! Another familiar face from the old stomping grounds! Welcome to our new home!!
  2. In the realm of mechanical keyboards, size often is a (forgive the pun) large factor in the fit and finish of your keyboard. The Venerable IBM Model M takes up a fair amount of real estate on the desk, and if you find a good mechanical deck with a small footprint, the height of the switches often makes the keyboard feel awkward. Enter the Tesoro GRAM Spectrum – A keyboard designed around the thin AGILE key switch, manages to capture a smaller footprint and blends it with a lower key height to give you a keyboard that is sleek, stylish and feels like a great mechanical board under your hands. Toss in RGB backlights on each switch for 16.8 million color combinations as well as a thin and sporty looking plastic body with an aluminum face plate and you have a keyboard that looks great as well. See the full review here.
  3. Good LAWD is smells Pimp up in here!! J-DOGG!! How are you, my friend! Welcome to the Zoo!!
  4. When G.Skill came on the scene, they rapidly became known for providing excellent computer memory at prices that were amazingly low compared to the competition. To this day, they have kept that trend going, challenging the other big manufacturers to keep their prices competitive and give us, the end user, a wonderful selection of rock solid memory to put into our boxes. Check out the full article HERE.
  5. When you find a great gaming keyboard, the difficulties of transportation often rear their ugly head and prevent you from taking your favorite with you, leaving you to find a cheap imitation to bring ‘on the road’. Cooler Master’s CM Storm division has attempted to tackle this issue for hard core gamers and programmers with the Rapid-i Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. Check out the full article HERE.
  6. High quality keyboards have become a major focus from computer accessory manufacturers over the last few years as serious gamers and typists are putting more and more pressure on companies to provide them with a product to fill that ever elusive ‘sweet spot’ of keying. Cooler Master’s sub-brand CM Storm stepped up to the plate and offered the Quick Fire XTi keyboard to face the community. Let’s see how they did in the eyes of our Munky, Jeremy. Check out the full article HERE.
  7. That's an awesome idea! Can't wait to see the results!
  8. BitFenix is a relatively young case company, when compared to names like Antec or Cooler Master. However, they've really made a name for themselves, by not following the crowd. I'm sure all of you have had, or know someone that has owned, a BitFenix Prodigy. It's unique design was such a hit, that it has been adapted into many a competitor's case designs. In fact, the internet is filled with Prodigy projects, builds and mods. The BitFenix Pandora is not a new case model, by any means. But, with the new larger Pandora coming out soon, we here at the Zoo felt that, it was worth a look. The good thing is that, I have had some time now to look it over. Outwardly, this case has the curves and brushed finish that would let this case find a home in most modern entertainment centers, without sticking out too badly. So, let's take a closer look at the Pandora mATX mid tower case with ICON™ display! Click HERE to read the rest of the article.
  9. Keyboards are, in my opinion, the most intimate choice of peripheral for the personal computer. You spend more quality time actually handling the keyboard than most other items on the pc on average, unless you are one of those people who point and click their way through their pc lives. It is the keyboard that will cause the most damage to your body, if you use it incorrectly, in the form of Repetitive Stress Injury. These points make the keyboard the most important bit to get just right, in my mind. It is excruciatingly difficult to discuss the keyboard in generic quantifiable terms and as a result most reviews of keyboards, including this one, are ultimately glorified opinion pieces. Unless you have a laboratory dedicated to the testing of lifetime wear and tear, how the keyboard interfaces with the human body and pressure sensitive devices to test the pressure it takes to depress each individual key with, a reviewer is left with ‘does this feel right’. With that in mind, please feel free to continue reading my opinion on the Cougar 600k Gaming keyboard. Read the rest over here!
  10. I'm gonna have to throw my vote at this is EXACTLY what the heart of Modding is - Taking something that doesn't quite match your situation and changing it to fit what you want. Case modding isn't all aesthetics - It was birthed in functionality mods and hacks. I also like to think that the Mod Zoo celebrates modding of all kinds, not just computer cases. In either case, I love what you're doing here and you've earned yourself the first fanpage feature of the day! https://www.facebook.com/TheModZoo/posts/706986769417798
  11. Gotta love some classic Sabbath as covered by some of the best heavy bands inspired by Sabbath https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASvPJTiqhxo
