     Sat, May 26 2018 | 9:03A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Who doesn't know it? Programs and games are getting bigger and bigger but there is no more room for additional SSDs in the case. The Icy Dock FlexiDock MB524SP-B should help. This is a mobile rack that offers up to four 2.5-inch drives in a 5.25-inch bay. How and if this works well, we show on OCinside.de in the following review.

Riotoro CR1088 Prism RGB Mini Tower ATX Case Review
     Sat, May 26 2018 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Riotoro calls its CR1088 Prism an ‘RGB Mini Tower’ which is a neat description that skips over the detail of what they have done inside this chassis. The major design choice is a dual chamber layout that moves the power supply from the traditional location at the bottom of the case to the right hand side. This means the CR1088 is low in height and looks like a mATX design (or possibly a large Mini-ITX) however it actually accommodates a full ATX motherboard. Almost as a side note the motherboard is flipped so the graphics card cooler face upwards and the various headers and connectors are located at the top.

MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon
     Sat, May 26 2018 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”The MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon is capable of overclocking and was able to deliver a final overclock of 4000MHz on my Ryzen 7 1800X. The rub is that you are limited to multiplier-only overclocking for the CPU cores. This puts my chip at a slight disadvantage as it can run just about everything short of 4100MHz. With the latest BIOS updates, running 3000MHz plus memory speeds really is not a problem and helps drive system performance up as memory speeds increase. Most of this is possible thanks to MSI knuckling down and building a solid board using its Military Class VRM and DDR4 Boost packages.”

PC gaming lives at the cutting edge
     Fri, May 25 2018 | 2:31P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PC gaming lives at the cutting edge, but let’s face it, sometimes it’s nice to kick back on the couch to enjoy a game. Not long ago, we were stuck with controllers or draping long wires across our floors, but as technology has advanced, those compromises are becoming a thing of the past. Today, we’re looking at the latest combo from Corsair with the K63 Wireless Mechanical Gaming Keyboard and their custom-fit Lapboard. Are the days of balancing keyboards on our legs and mousing from couch cushions finally behind us? Let’s find out.

Logitech G PRO Gaming Headset Review
     Fri, May 25 2018 | 2:30P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It’s immediately clear that Logitech is on the right path as they have gone for a more stripped back refined approach with the G PRO. They’ve removed pretty much all the gamer-focused features such as RGB illumination, heavy aesthetic ques and bold branding. Instead, they’ve opted for a more minimal and sleek style which is void of the previously mentioned gamer design flourishes.

Posted by: STAFF
With the Eclipse P350X, Phanteks has a case for E-ATX motherboards in its portfolio, which comes with a lot of features and at an attractive price. Apart from that especially friends of water cooling will love this case, since it offers good flexibility in that direction. In addition this model supports RGB illumination and it's compatible with several lighting systems. For now, we're really curious to find out how this case is going to do in our review.

Netstor NA611TB3 Thunderbolt 3 External Drive Enclosure Review
     Fri, May 25 2018 | 2:28P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Netstor may be a new name to some but the Taiwanese company has been around since 2001 and specialises in cutting-edge storage and PCIe expansion solutions for varied business applications. Its latest external drive is the NA611TB3, which as you may gather from the name, uses the Thunderbolt 3 interface. But what makes the NA611TB3 really special is that it supports two M.2 NVMe drives that can be built into RAID arrays to provide even more performance/security.

ASRock X399M Taichi AMD TR4 Motherboard Review
     Fri, May 25 2018 | 2:28P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have tested another AMD Threadripper motherboard for you on OCinside.de and are excited! This time we test with the ASRock X399M Taichi a small Micro ATX motherboard for AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors. The tiny Socket TR4 motherboard is tested and overclocked in the OC test with an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1900X CPU. Looking at the features of the X399M Taichi motherboard, one can hardly believe that this is a Micro ATX motherboard. Because three PCI Express slots, four DDR4 slots, three fast Ultra M.2 32Gb/s slots and 32Gb/s U.2 port, eight SATA3 ports, two LAN ports, WLAN, Bluetooth, sound, RGB chipset cooler and much more is not common, if you can call an AMD Ryzen Threadripper Micro ATX motherboard common at all. In the following review we offer also many tips, UEFI video tutorial, infrared thermal image and 360 degree view of the futuristic processor packaging as well as 360 degree view of the mainboard and wish as always a lot of fun!

IOGear HVER RGB Gaming Keyboard Review
     Fri, May 25 2018 | 2:27P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Any enthusiast will know the name IOGEAR; this prolific peripherals company has been around for years and has a broad and popular catalog of products. Today Benchmark Reviews has the IOGEAR HVER RGB Aluminum Gaming Keyboard for review. This interesting input device includes popular features like partial aluminum construction, programmability with multiple profiles, and RGB lighting, but keeps costs down by eschewing mechanical key switches for rubber domes. How much of a sacrifice is this? We’ll see in this review.
