Viewsonic XG3220 Gaming Monitor Review


Refresh vs. Resolution Companies love bragging about 4k resolution and I don’t exactly know why. Sure, more pixels should equate to a better image, but the eye can only see so much. Regardless of how much pixel density the eye scientifically needs, gamers know when something looks right, or something looks wrong. Or do they?


 

Viper RGB DDR4 RAM Review


The Eyes Stare Into Your Soul Highest speeds in DDR4 RAM does little to impact overall system performance. There are so many kits that perform great, that it can be really hard to make a solid recommendation. My advise is to look for the kit that looks the best to you. Today, we’re going to check out what has looked like an amazing design to me. If the Viper RGB doesn’t attract you immediately, just stare at the glowing eyes for a while!


 

Enermax LIQTech TR4 II CPU Cooler Review


Can We AM4 it? The Enermax LIQTech TR4 II is meant for AMD’s monster chip. The huge heat spreader on Threadripper can dwarf the contact plate on many CPU coolers.

Get ready for a fun ride, but first a statement from Enermax.

In the case of the Reeven Ouranos, the yellow fan definitely adds a unique element to the design. On the other hand, is yellow going to do enough to attract buyers? We’ll see if this cooler has a solid place in the PC building world, but first a statement from the company.

While I had at least heard of Scythe, the company is a new experience for me as well. The company as a whole seems to have a positive vibe on the internet. Will the Mugen 5 live up to expectations? We’ll find out pretty soon.


 

Lamptron CP530 Intelligent Fan Controller Review


The Smart One! We all hated that smart kid in the class who always had the answers! (Truth be told, I was kinda that kid.) Well, I’m sure all the other Lamptron products are sick of how smart the CP530 is. Intelligent fan control sounds intriguing, but what makes this product unique is that it is purely hardware based. We’ll check it out soon, but first let’s look at a statement again from Lamptron.


 

Lamptron CE420 Fan & RGB Controller Review


No Software Here Addressable RGB is taking the world by storm. As a result, many companies have come up with complete systems for lighting customization. Motherboards have software, but products have to support motherboard sync or the 3/4 pin headers. Other companies use external controllers, but those also tend to be proprietary with said company’s products. Lamptron might be the only one providing hardware based lighting control. The CE420 is one of the latest in RGB and fan control, so let’s find out how well it does.


 

Patriot Trinity USB Flash Drive Review


Not the Tomb Raider One You might have been thinking of the evil corporation in conflict with the Crofts. While we’re not talking about that Trinity, the device is far more versatile than the initial appearance would suggest. Patriot introduced a USB flash drive that can handle multiple ports, but we also want to see how well it performs. First, let’s look at a brief statement from the company.
