Ballistix Sport LT 16GB DDR4 SODIMM Memory Kit Review
     Thu, Aug 17 2017 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Besides the small performance bump in the encoding/rendering productivity applications, we have also seen lower loading times in various memory hungry games such as Forza after the upgrade and the stuttering was gone. One other aspect is that by using a larger memory quantity, we will also decrease the wear from the boot drive (a usage example would be working with a larger project in Adobe Premiere). Even if the RAM did run at the same frequency as before, the speed bump is mainly due to the switch from a single-channel (stock) configuration to a dual-channel."

Fractal Design Define C TG Case Review
     Thu, Aug 17 2017 | 12:39A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design has earned a very good reputation for its quality cases, but until very recently the company had refrained from joining the latest market trend and using tempered glass panels. That looks to have changed, however, as today we are looking at the Define C TG (Tempered Glass) chassis, a compact full-ATX chassis that wastes no space yet retains plenty of worthwhile features.

"As we mentioned in our review of the Cooler Master MasterSet MS120, Cooler Master is launching some very inexpensive gaming accessories to get you going. When building a new PC one of the last things you think about is the accessories, but they are needed and you want products that are going to perform, not a 5-year old keyboard and earbuds that came with your phone. That is where the Cooler Master MasterPulse MH320 comes in. This large headset is ready for all of your gaming situations with large over the ear ear cups, a comfortable self-adjusting headband, and and fold away boom microphone. Let’s take a look!"

Samsung Portable SSD T5 Review (500GB/2TB
     Wed, Aug 16 2017 | 7:39P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our report today is on Samsung’ newest T5 2TB and 500GB SSDs, and at this point in the game, few might argue that Samsung sets the industry standard in all that is SSD. Including a 2TB capacity into their newest T5 release, as they did for the T3 prior, one might say that 2TB is also the norm… but knowing what capacity they could fit into their palm-sized external T5 SSD would blow your mind. It all comes into play with their newest 64-Layer V-NAND flash technology.

MSI X299 SLI Plus @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Aug 16 2017 | 6:39P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you aren’t into flashy builds or if you are building a PC to be used in an office environment it seems like it is getting harder and harder to find simple but feature filled motherboards. Thankfully a few of the manufacturers like MSI have Pro focused lines. This is especially important with X299, a platform that overall seems better focused on workstation builds. Well MSI just happened to send over the X299 SLI Plus from their Pro lineup and today I’m going to check it out and see what it has going on.
