The Cullinan was a large diamond found and it makes sense that Rosewill's case is named after it. The three tempered glass panels give it an extremely elegant look and the overall build experience was really good. The space to install graphics cards could be a bit better, but it can be worked around.
A lot of Z270 motherboards perform better by small margins, but it's hard to find an Intel board that offers more features than what MSI does at this price. The Gaming Pro Carbon looks great, has nice lighting effects, and overclocks pretty nicely. This might be the best overall Z270 motherboard.
The PSU is extremely important to a computer, yet it can also be hard to budget for in the build. The Rosewill Valens offers Gold efficiency to help with quality, but has an attractive price point as well. The semi-modular design is great and while the fan can be noticeable, the performance is solid.
The Bradley has a decent amount of building room and includes 3 fans. As usual, Rosewill has a great price to match the amount of features involved. The water cooling support can be iffy depending on how tall heat sinks and spreaders get, but the quality is good for the budget this case is in.
Are you a gamer who’s looking into starting your own Twitch stream? We might have some info that will help you out. It turns out AMD’s Ryzen chips did a great job in game streaming, but there’s some settings that can help optimize that a bit. This isn’t a fully comprehensive guide, but it’s a great start to get your Overwatch matches on the web with some pretty good quality. Check out the video below for the details and if you happen to be one of those streamers who has some tips or tricks, feel free to post them in our forums!
The term module can mean little more than changing surface pieces, but EpicGear takes it to a whole new meaning with the Morpha X. You can choose whether you like optical or laser for gaming, which switch type is best for clicks, and you can change weight. It's practically two mice in one!
Can a CPU cooler have too much quality? Lepa makes an amazing tower cooler with the NEOllusion and the RGB lighting is one of the best in the business. That said, computer builders will certainly pay a steep price to add one of these units to their PC. It may be worth it in the long run.
Finding a high capacity SD card can seem easy until you try to find a high speed class. Samsung offers a great capacity and top speed class with the EVO Plus Micro SD Memory Card. If you're a content creator who uses a lot of video, this is a great option to use to expand storage.
Earbuds can lack heavily in the bass department, but Rosewill found a way to excel with theirs. The EX-700 really shines, but the EX-500 isn't a slouch either. If you want high quality audio in a small package, these units will surprise you. The EX-500 isn't as comfortable though.
Ryzen has finally arrived! The 1800X and 1700X perform admirably, give users more cores and threads than ever before, and have some extremely competitive price points. The top CPU SKUs don't overclock quite as well, but the 1700 is a great value that can be set to much higher than it's base frequencies. Great job AMD!
I know, this isn’t the full Ryzen 7 review yet, but I couldn’t wait to post this. Also, I needed to make sure this video was uploaded at 60 FPS since all of my other review videos upload at 30. This could be the biggest win AMD has with this release and that’s saying a ton since Ryzen already has some other big wins. The full review is coming very soon with all of the testing phases having been completed, but there’s still some writing, shooting and editing that needs to be finished. Check out the video below to see how AMD lived up to their claims that Ryzen 7 would be an excellent CPU for streamers and we’ll be back with even more review details soon!
Aorus makes a huge splash for Gigabyte by offering RGB lighting never before seen in the motherboard market. On top of that, the Z270 motherboard does a great job of overclocking the Intel 7700K CPU. Oh, and if you want amazing sound card quality audio, the Gaming 7 is the motherboard for you.
Introduction It’s finally here! We’ve waited, literally for years for this day to arrive and now we finally get to see what AMD has to show for years of hard work and engineering. Unfortunately for Ryzen, the internet can be a harsh and unforgiving place, so it has to be at the top of it’s game in order to save itself from crucifixion. Here at PureOC AMD, gave us the chance to review Ryzen and provided numerous samples for us to put through the paces. This isn’t the review, but since the time it will take to publish that will be a little bit longer, we figured we’d start with a bit of a preview for launch day. In this preview, we’ll mostly talk about first impressions, but there will be a few benchmarks to begin comparing with as well. I also want to talk about the experience. Raw performance numbers should never be overlooked, but building computers is about so much more than numbers for many people out there. Let’s go ahead and begin with some thoughts on how the Ryzen experience felt at first, then bring a few comparitive benchmarks, and finish off with initial thoughts on whether AMD has succeeded with their Ryzen 7 series or not. In this particular preview, we start with the Ryzen 7 1800X and the Aorus AX370 Gaming 5 motherboard, but our reviews will also cover the 1700X, 1700 and Asus Crosshair VI Hero motherboad. Let’s continue on page 2.
GeIL found a way to add RGB lighting to memory without affecting it's clockspeeds. The Evo X does require an extra cable connection, but it makes a nice addition to the build. While the stock speeds are great, there's little overclocking room and the red switch stands out a bit too much, though it's easily removed.
Every gamer needs a good gaming chair, but most chairs are way too expensive. OPSeat is changing the market with the Master Series. The tall back and straight sitting position is much better for ergonomics. It may not be the most comfortable chair, but it's well worth the price.
