Gigabyte AB350N-Gaming WIFI AM4 Motherboard Review
     Thu, Jul 20 2017 | 7:37P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The most resounding question asked at CES 2017 after showing AM4 motherboards before launch is “Where are the ITX motherboards?”. That is really all you need to know about how popular ITX options are these days. Especially since it was not possible on AMD’s AM3+ platform with FX CPUs and definitely not going to be possible with AMD TR4 Threadripper

ASRock Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming K4 Review
     Thu, Jul 20 2017 | 7:32P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This motherboard represents ASRock's B350 gaming motherboard and competes against the likes of the MSI TOMAHAWK B350, and the GIGABYTE AB350 Gaming 3. The B350 chipset is an interesting inception, as it allows gamers to create a powerful system at a lower cost when compared to the X370 motherboards. The primary differences between the chipsets are: four fewer USB 3.1 Gen1, 2x SATA3 ports fewer, and no SLI support. With that in mind, if you don't plan on running a home server, or running more than one NVIDIA graphics card, a budget conscious gamer may want to consider a B350 motherboard.

Corsair K68 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Thu, Jul 20 2017 | 4:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What is the main reason to spend money on a “gaming” mechanical keyboard vs a regular keyboard?
