Cougar Havoc BT Wireless Gaming Headset Review

WEB: COUGAR MSRP: US $64.90 | ZAR TBD | AUTHOR: Neo

Several weeks ago I reviewed Cougar’s Attila gaming headset and I came away from that review impressed by the value it offered. This time I have a higher quality headset in the form of the Havoc BT, which is in itself a follow up on the original wired mode only, Havoc headset.

For serious gamers looking to improve their experiences, keyboards shouldn’t be overlooked. While some gamers will debate which is the better option between conventional controllers and keyboards, the latter approach seems to win out for PC users.

Cougar Attila Gaming Headset Review

WEB: COUGAR MSRP: US $29.90 | ZAR TBD | AUTHOR: Neo

Cougar ATTILA

Cougar’s Atilla headset is here, seeking to join other highly impressive Cougar gear such as the K700 Evo and Surpassion RX mouse, reviewed late last year.

Before we got further, I can tell you right now that the Attila’s sonic performance is middle of the road. Cougar has a better sounding set in the Havoc BT, but that’s double the price. The Atilla makes a case for itself in pure value proposition and in its versatility. As such, these may not deliver the best sonic performance in Cougar’s range, but nothing else matches them for value. At $29.90 (Local ZAR price TBA), you’ll have a tough tome finding a better headset anywhere.

Life with the Intel Core i9 10980XE

 WEB: INTEL MSRP: USD $999.99 | ZAR  18,999 | AUTHOR: Neo

Life with the Intel Core i9 10980XE. Way after the reviews have landed, there’s the everyday experience with the CPU. Something that benchmarks can’t really tell you. This video is just some of my insights on the CPU and using it everyday. Despite the criticism leveled at the CPU, I like this one. If the older 7980XE was justifiable at nearly $2,000 / R36,000 or so, surely the 10980XE at $999/ R19,000 makes even better sense.

Either way, make of it what you will. Until next time. 😉
