Computex 2012 - Walking through these halls in Nangang is crazy, there is almost too much to see, which is sometimes overwhelming. Then you meet some great guys over at the GeIL booth and they walk you through some of their gear. GEiL are just one division of a three-part company. GEiL covers the memory/storage side of things, Epic Gear covers peripherals such as keyboards, mice and mouse mats, then finally we have power supplies covered by Thortech.

First up we have shots of the Meduza mouse from Epic Gear, which felt great in my hand. The mouse mat under it has 8 layers and can flex back on itself and is an absolute joy to use. I noticed it felt smoother than most other mice I've used at Computex and asked the guy if the monitor was a 120Hz screen, which it was. Nice to see GEiL using a super-smooth 120Hz screen to their advantage with a smooth mouse and mouse mat combo.

The Meduza sports dual-sensors, one optical, one lazer for precision. This is great for those who switch between first-person shooters and MMOs, there is a toggle for 'optical', 'host', and 'laser'. Another surprise was their Compoxite mouse mat which is completely water-proof. This is great for those gamer rage sessions where you might accidentally spill a drink across your mouse mat.

Something cool that I've never seen in-person was a memory testing unit, DBT. DBT is 'Die-Hard Burn-in Technology' and is a memory burn-in chamber. Very cool.

The memory itself has two lights, through the Devil's eyes - wicked.

GeIL's EVO Cyclone memory is unique - with its fan lit up by LEDs that show off some text and the current temp.

Finally, Thortech had some power supplies on display ranging from 650W to 1200W. The Thunderbolt Plus 1200W has a wicked LCD readout that sits in your 5.25-inch bay and gives you details on what's going on in the power supply. Introducing the iPower Meter Display. Thortech had their 1200W beast powering three GEFORCE GTX 680's which was a great sight, I love the color scheme and the Bumblebee look is definitely big at Computex!
