AMD Combat Crate Might Cost More Cash

AMD announced the new Combat Crate to help with the cost of graphics cards. The included Ryzen 1600 CPU, MSI Motherboard, and RX 580 seems like a decent deal.

CLCs are overwhelming used for CPUs, but what if they are better suited for GPUs? The Arctic Liquid Freezer 120 proves it has excellent ability to keep temperatures low during intensive gaming sessions, at minimal noise as well. What it lacks in aesthetics it makes up for by far in price.



Attention Overclockers: Don’t Buy a Ryzen 2700X!

The overclocking results are in and the Ryzen 2700X is both amazing and awful at the same time. AMD is making it easier than it's ever been for everyone to overclock, but manual overclocking is basically pointless on 2nd gen Ryzen. It's a tough day to be in the news!
