Rosewill Bradley M PC Case Review

Introduction Rosewill is back, with another case to help ease the stress on our budgets for building PCs. The Bradley M name doesn’t sound like a really cool thing at first, but some quick research looked like it was named after a troop transport that also has the ability to provide cover fire. The coolness has been doubled! While Rosewill’s case is squarely in a budget tier, I would expect that we’ll have a fairly sturdy unit on our hands as a result of the name choice. We’ll find out how well that works out soon enough, but before we get to the specs, let’s look at Rosewill’s company statement again.   Rosewill’s mission is to consistently deliver reliable, high quality PC gaming, IT hardware and home products through leading innovation and long-lasting relationships. Rosewill Inc. was established in 2004, founded by manufacturing reliable, high-quality technology products. The first products under the Rosewill brand name included computer components such as computer cases, power supply units, keyboards, mice and cables. Over time, the product line strategically developed and entered new areas of growth, including PC gaming and home products. Under the management of experienced e-retail experts, Rosewill products can be found on all top e-commerce sites, along with product information and reviews. Today, Rosewill currently manufactures and markets an immense catalogue of inventive products among its three product categories. Th...

EpicGear Morpha X Modular Gaming Mouse Review

Introduction EpicGear has been truly Epic! In fact, the more I use their products, the more I realize I don’t want to use anything else. Their peripherals have gradually taken over my desk to be my number one choice in daily, gaming and work use. It makes you wonder if I should just give the Morpha X Modular Gaming Mouse an editor’s choice already, but we don’t operate that way in PureOC. No matter how many good products we get, we never know when the next one is a dud. Will the Morpha X end up falling flat? Well, I doubt it, but we’ll just have to take a closer look and see. Once again, let’s look at EpicGear’s statement first, then we’ll dive right in.

Lepa NEOllusion RGB LED CPU Cooler Review

Introduction RGB LED seems to be taking over every component in the PC, so why are tower CPU coolers so far behind the curve on this one? Considering you only have to add an RGB LED fan and you’re done, it doesn’t make sense. The first image I saw of the Lepa NEOlluision looked cool, but at the time I didn’t realize it was actually RGB. They also went farther than simply adding an RGB fan to a tower. The light design on the unit looks amazing and I can already say that if you’re going to add LEDs to a cooler, then Lepa is doing it right. However, there’s more to a CPU cooler than how it looks. We’ll begin diving into that soon but first, let’s look at a statement from the company behind the NEOllusion. Whole New Vision – Beyond the Boundaries Let’s Power All ! In 2010, LEPA heralded the birth of a whole new rising star, shinning in the global computer hardware arena. LEPA was founded by a group of enthusiastic IT engineers with zeal about technological innovations.

Samsung EVO Plus Micro SD 128GB Memory Card Review

Introduction The last time I got to review a micro SD card, I may have gotten the technical details down, but the emotional impact wasn’t as strong. Since then, I’ve built a sizable amount of video reviews that are totally dependent on the ability of my Galaxy S7 smartphone. What can I say? I’m a freelancer and as such, my budget isn’t even in the range for a lower end DSLR at the time being. On the other hand, cell phones are a great alternative to expensive cameras for those on a budget, while offering significantly better video quality than a standard webcam. The only big issue comes with eating up tons of storage space quickly when I start using high quality settings in my apps. Capacity and write performance are critical for the kind of work I’m doing. We’ll begin looking at the Evo Plus 128 GB micro SD soon, but first let’s look at a statement from the company behind some awesome storage devices. For over 70 years, Samsung has been dedicated to making a better world through diverse businesses that today span advanced technology, semiconductors, skyscraper and plant construction, petrochemicals, fashion, medicine, finance, hotels, and more. Our flagship company, Samsung Electronics, leads the global market in high-tech electronics manufacturing and digital media. Through innovative, reliable products and services, talented people, a responsible approach to business and global citizenship, and collaboration with our partners a...

Rosewill EX-500 and EX-700 Earbuds Review

Introduction We would like welcome Mario to PureOC with his first review! Let us know what you think in the forums. In-ear headphones for me were always a necessary evil. Having decent sound that you could shove in your pocket and move around with seemed like a pipe dream. That’s not to say it didn’t exist, just that it likely cost hundreds of dollars for something I would potentially lose on the bus. Rosewill is trying to release some headphones that rival $100+ audio for half the price. We’ll soon see how they measure up, but let’s start off with a statement from the company first and offer our thanks for sending a sample for us to review. Rosewill’s mission is to consistently deliver reliable, high quality PC gaming, IT hardware and home products through leading innovation and long-lasting relationships. Rosewill Inc. was established in 2004, founded by manufacturing reliable, high-quality technology products. The first products under the Rosewill brand name included computer components such as computer cases, power supply units, keyboards, mice and cables. Over time, the product line strategically developed and entered new areas of growth, including PC gaming and home products. Under the management of experienced e-retail experts, Rosewill products can be found on all top e-commerce sites, along with product information and reviews.

AMD Ryzen 7 CPU Series Review: 1800X, 1700X and 1700

Introduction We’ve finally made it to this historic day here at Pureoverclock! It doesn’t matter whether we’re AMD fanboys or not, we’ve all been waiting for Ryzen to show up because even if we don’t plan to buy a chip any time soon, the CPU market has gone way too long without competition. Nearly four years ago, AMD released their last major high end release in the FX-9590. Even then, this was nothing more than a factory overclock of the 8350 that released in 2012. Shortly after, we started hearing that team Red was going to be dropping out of the high-end CPU race, while considering focusing their resources on APUs, consoles and mobile. I remember this time vividly and felt a sense of dread thinking about what would happen to the enthusiasts market if we only had one option. Thankfully, Lisa Su became CEO of AMD in 2014. It was during this time that I saw liquid cooling bundles added to the 9000 series chips, better designs on the array of included stock coolers, optimized releases of the 8000 series chips that included better clockspeeds at the same pricing, and the best news of all, the announcement of a new CPU architecture being designed named “Zen.” Everything Su has done for the company has built my hype for this moment and this review is going to determine whether she reaches “hero” status in my book or not. So without further ado, let’s get ready to enter into one of the greatest moments in my reviewing...
