In Win 301 Gaming Case Review

Introduction Building computers is a work of progress. Most of us are happy if our first system turns on and we can successfully install Windows on it. After that we start finding ways to make Windows run smoother, cut the tearing/stuttering out of our gaming, make our cables look prettier, and even risk voiding warranties to overclock our parts for more performance. This is what we can consider the final stages of performance. However, if you’re really into building a PC for the sheer fun of building it, there’s a whole new level that makes a custom PC an entirely different experience. Most of our reviews focus on the straightforward attributes of a component’s ease of use, value, and performance. That frame of mind makes it very easy to give a recommendation on the majority of parts out there, but some companies force the reviewer to change their perspective entirely and gauge a product on a whole new level. That’s what In Win is going to do to us today. Sure, we’re not going to forget the practical aspects of this case, but we also have to consider the “Art” level of the design. This is the ultimate stage where a system becomes more than a high performance machine, but also represents a work of art reflecting the builder’s personal taste. In Win lives here and we’ll soon figure out how well the 301 Chassis fits into that level, right after taking a quick look at the values of this company. IN-WIN Development Inc., ...



AMD Threadripper: More like Thread-Demolisher

The year of Ryzen has turned out to be a very good year indeed. AMD’s new architecture only had some minor set backs to overcome, but now it’s poised to be the competitive champion of the PC market. I’m going to let you google the Threadripper reviews this time, because I’m going to focus on some incredible firsts that basically sum up how great this release is and why Threadripper is demolishing competition. For starters…. Holy Cats! Intel has dominated this chart for ages now, yet there’s a Threadripper at the very top!!! AMD is at the top of the charts!!!!! Wow! I’m sure Intel is working hard to dethrone that, but for the time being, AMD is at the top of the PassMark chart and that’s pretty incredible. However, shock and awe is just beginning….. Are we really seeing this!?! Was that Nvidia congratulating AMD!?!?!?!?!?! What’s going on? Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria! Did we ever see a day where Nvidia and AMD acted…. cordially to each other? But it didn’t end there…… AMD just high-fived Nvidia!!!!!! I’m not saying the future won’t have some sort of confrontation again, it’s just weird to see what what was thought as mortal enemies having such a great exchange. I remember during my sales years that I was told to essentially hate my competition. I think we can prove that you don’t have to hate someone to be competitive with them (all ...
