Have you wondered why there are so many chipsets? Z170, Z270, Z370, 990FX, X370, X299, X399, etc. Intel and AMD have a lot of motherboards and we try to make sense of all the changes that make each one different. Also, we find out that Intel doesn't have a clear reason for changing their chipset with every CPU release.
Noctua joins the 200mm arena and as always, they are one of the best when it comes to silence and cooling performance. If you aren't a fan of brown and beige fans with a high price though, they may not be your first choice. The sheer quality of their fans is something that shouldn't be ignored.
E-Win made a surprisingly great gaming chair with the Champion. Not only does it have features like 4D armrests, but it is one of the best chairs to sit in on the comfort level as well. What really makes it stand out is in being one of the most affordable chairs in it's bracket.
Patriot is pushing into the gaming market a little harder with the Viper V570 Blackout. The ergonomics aren't the best, but the trade off is a mouse that seems to improve precision and reaction. The RGB lighting is amazing and the button layout gives gamers a lot of ability options.
Rosewill has a lot of features and great lighting on their Neon K85 RGB keyboard. The mechanical switches are nice, but they opt for Kailh instead of cherry. The price makes it worth considering and if you haven't tried a mechanical keyboard for gaming, then don't wait any longer!
Enermax offers an excellent PSU with the MaxTytan. Sleemax is a great feature for those who don't want to sleeve cables themselves. The RevoBron is a solid budget option that doesn't cut important features for a clean computer build. Respective to their budgets, each unit has great quality.
Noctua offers excellent performing low profile CPU coolers with the NH-S12L and NH-L9a-AM4. For those in the SFF computer market, these low profile coolers are a perfect match if you need something better than a stock cooler. If beige and brown isn't a problem.
GeIL does a great job with their RGB lighting and high out of the box frequencies. Where their RAM falls a little short though is in the overclocking department. Since many choose not to overclock their memory, the Super Luce RGB Sync AMD kit might be just right for you.
In a world where software controls all of our lighting effects, Lamptron stood out and gave us a hardware level RGB and fan control in the CM420. With a plethora of connections, it will likely work with whatever RGB fan or strip you have. Don't forget to enter the Giveaway before it ends!
Tunai asked if we could do a short review of the release of their earbuds and we obliged. The claims of better bass lived up to expectation and the earbuds had great quality across the full audio spectrum. The price is great for the quality and the comfort was top notch as well.
Raijintek is a small company with big ideas. The Paean chassis is one example of it. It maintains all the benefits a good bench case should have, but makes it display worthy with sturdy tempered glass panels. The solid aluminum motherboard tray is a great example of quality as well. Enjoy the review!
PureOC will always recommend building your own computer, but we understand that isn't for everyone. iBuyPower does an excellent job selling pre-built custom PCs and we really enjoyed getting a chance to review the Element. Besides, we couldn't say no to the chance to try an Intel i7-7900X and Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti!
Azza offers a lot of case for a great price. The Storm 6000W has a good number of fans, a spacey interior, and some fun RGB lighting effects to boot. If you don't mind overlooking some minor details that can make the build experience a little harder, this chassis is a great option to consider.
FSP is new to CPU coolers, but they did a pretty impressive job. The Windale 6 looks great and it has pretty stellar cooling performance. Where it falls behind a bit is in its install process. The rubber mounts are good for vibration, but difficult to mount the fan with.
Many cases focus on easy building and external gaming looks to sell to the market. In Win designed their 301 chassis to force the builder to make a beautiful, clean build. Many of their cases come with hefty price premiums, but the 301 is quite affordable. It's a great case for a SFF computer.
