AMD Ryzen 2000 Series Ruins Overclocking, then Revolutionizes it!

The release and reviews of the Ryzen 2000 series has been an up and down day. At first I was excited, then I felt like overclocking was going to be gone, then I had an epiphany. AMD probably revolutionized the way overclockers benefit from it!



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!



Finally! Aorus X470 Gaming 7 Revealed from Gigabyte, with 4.6 GHz Overclock Tease!!!

This is my favorite looking design among X470 motherboards I've seen so far. Not only have I waited for Gigabyte to release a Gaming 7, but the Aorus features indicate some stellar performance. However, what's the deal with that 4.6 GHz Overclock tease? Could it be???



AMD Ryzen 2700X Overclocking, a Giant Question Mark

A story came out claiming a Ryzen 2700X was overclocked to 4.35 GHz. On further investigation, the real number was 4.19 GHz. Could AMD have a let down on their hands when it comes to overclocking? Don't make that call just yet since the motherboard in question is a huge factor.



Crucial Ballistix Releases Tactical Tracer RGB RAM, Amazing Looks and Software

The Tactical Tracer RGB RAM kits have an awesome heat spreader design. As good as that is, it looks like Ballistix has brought the memory's lighting control to a new level as well. The utility has a lot of features and users can custom 3D print their own light bars!



AMD Ryzen 2nd Gen CPUs Ready for Pre-Order – Why You Should and Why You Shouldn’t

AMD announced today that global pre-orders of their 2nd generation of Ryzen processors are now available. Well the friendly experts at PureOC are here to help with a list of reasons on why you should, or why you shouldn't pre-order one of the shiny new CPUs from AMD.



Corsair Gives Much Needed Break from RGB, Dominator Platinum Special Edition Contrast RAM

If you've been needing a break from all the RGB news, Corsair has just the RAM you need. The Dominator Platinum Special Edition Contrast Memory offers a clean aesthetic, with only white LEDs, to match the builder who wants a professional look. Also, there's performance to match!



Too Much RGB? Not Yet! iBuyPower Cable Combs Reach a Dazzling Level

Will there ever be too much RGB? Probably, but I love the new iBuyPower RGB Cable combs. They targeted what could be considered the most boring part of a custom PC build, and turned it into rock concert levels of awesome! At $30, the price is pretty decent too.



AMD doesn’t Need a Ryzen 2800X to Skew Great Pricing

The Ryzen 2000 series is about to release and price listings on Amazon reveal to be better than originally expected. Of course, the question arises if AMD will release a 2800X CPU later on. I don't think they will, and I really think they shouldn't add another processor to the Zen+ lineup like that.



Thermaltake Launches Pacific CL Series Copper Radiators with Interesting Features

All radiators may look the same to some, but overclockers appreciate the fine details that add to cooling performance improvement. The Pacific CL Copper rads from Thermaltake have some normal evolutionary updates, but their reflow solder technique looks like a great improvement.



I Like the FSP CMT520, but Companies Need to Fix Their RGB Advertising

The latest from FSP looks like a great case. The CMT520 has a lot of building room and some solid tempered glass features. While the RGB lighting looks nice, it's a bit misleading. This chassis only seems to support one RGB color at a time, rather than addressable RGB lighting.



Enermax Launches LIQFusion CPU Cooler, a Rainbow of Cooling

RGB CLCs are great, but the truly great ones have addressable RGB lighting. The Enermax LIQFusion CPU cooler has this feature, as well as the new external hose pump. While the lighting looks great already, there's a good chance that cooling performance will be top notch as well.



Even Corsair Thinks Far Cry 5 is All the Rage!

Seeing a AAA title bundled with an expensive graphics card is normal, but seeing Far Cry 5 bundled with a $150 purchase from Corsair is different. Ubisoft just partnered with them and has even synchronized some of their gaming titles to control hardware lighting effects with iCUE software.



Asrock RX 580 Phantom Gaming X Graphics Card, How Does it Stack Up?

Asrock is joining the graphics card battle with the RX 500 Phantom Gaming Series. Their claims to overclocking may not be as strong as what we were led to believe, but the possibilities of adding solid budget contenders to the competition is a great thing for consumers. More AMD GPUs FTW!



Aida64 Releases Version 5.97

Aida64 releases version 5.97, including support for new CPU releases, GPUs and Corsair peripherals. There's even a listing for an Nvidia GTX 1060 5 GB. The graphics card sounds like a new release, but it could be specific to a foreign market in relation to the US.
