     Sun, Dec 17 2017 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair's HS50 Stereo Gaming Headset boasts solid build quality and classy looks, plus a Swiss Army knife's worth of compatibility. We gamed with the HS50 on consoles and listened to its musical chops to see whether it's a winner for $50.

Gigabyte Z370 Aorus Ultra Gaming Review
     Sun, Dec 17 2017 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We liked the Z370 Aorus Gaming 7 enough to give it our ‘Must Have’ award, but there is no denying it is fairly expensive at £245. Move down the Gigabyte Aorus product stack past the Z370 Aorus Gaming 5 and you will come to the Z370 Aorus Ultra Gaming that is priced at a very reasonable £158, but despite that hefty saving it appears to offer the vast majority of the features you find in the Gaming 7.

Linksys EA9300 Max-Stream AC4000 Tri-Band Router
     Sun, Dec 17 2017 | 9:02A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have a whole pile of routers in this comparison table - all of which are Gigabit routers. Most are very close in performance with the poorest performance coming from the Rosewill T600N, followed by the DIR-655. The latest router from Linksys takes the crown with the fastest wired performance however. At 982 mbps - it's as close to a full 1000 mbps as we've ever seen...

VertDesk v3 Electric Sit Stand Desk Review
     Sun, Dec 17 2017 | 9:01A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We are always talking about different hardware and accessories for your PC, but it is not often we talk about a desk. When you think about it your computer desk is one of the most important parts of your PC setup. If you don’t like your desk or something is messed up with it, it throws everything off. Sit to stand desks have become extremely popular over the past few years. There are so many reports on how sitting all day is bad for you. So being able to stand most of the day and sit down when you start to fatigue is a good thing. The VertDesk is an electric sit to stand desk that is on its third iteration now and is said to be extremely sturdy.

     Sat, Dec 16 2017 | 4:02P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While Patriot isn’t well established in the peripheral market, its flagship set of mice have already proven that the Viper gaming line can contest with the best. Its high-end Viper V770 keyboard comes in with a plethora of features that has it coined as a potential flagship killer, while attempting to add its own flavour to the mix for good measure, but does it have what it takes to dethrone the Corsair K70?

Intel Core i9-7900X 3.3 GHz
     Sat, Dec 16 2017 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Core i9-7900X is where Intel's new HEDT processor lineup truly begins, delivering on all the platform's three main goals - more cores, more memory channels, and more PCIe lanes. We pit it against the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X for what will be a pitched battle of the 1000-Dollar giants.
