Scanner Sombre
     Wed, Jan 17 2018 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”I started this review by saying that Scanner Sombre is the kind of game I would need to see a review of. I still believe that, and I hope what I have written provides the information others may be looking for. It is a game of exploration that has a twist to the mechanic I cannot remember experiencing before. That is something I both appreciate and enjoy. Because of how atypical the game is, it is almost odd to think about recommending it, but I do recommend it. It is an interesting and I feel enjoyable game of exploration. It does help that the retail price is only $11.99, especially with how short it is, but if you already enjoy games like Dear Esther, I think this too is a game you can enjoy. (And, for the record, I do like Dear Esther.) The graphics and style look good and the gameplay is interesting in its mechanics and execution. The story has some dark elements to it, and while I do not want to spoil anything, I will say that I was able to correctly guess some of it. Nothing wrong with that though, at least not for me, especially as I am kind of use to guessing stories. The exploration is the key, and that is satisfying.”

GeIL Super Luce RGB SYNC DDR4-3000 32GB Memory Kit Review
     Wed, Jan 17 2018 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Earlier this year we took a look at GeIL’s Super Luce DDR4 memory. This memory turned out to be really good and we even rewarded it with our Recommended Award. The original Super Luce memory had a single-color light bar at the top. Well we know RGB is all the rage now, so GeIL has released their Super Luce RGB SYNC DDR4 memory. This new memory has an RGB light bar at the top and is compatible with ASUS’s AURA Sync, so you can easily control it with ASUS’s software. Today we will be checking out the GALS432GB3000C16AQC kit which is a 32GB kit running at 3000 MHz with timings of 16.18.18.36 at 1.35V. This kit is also part of the GeIL’s AMD Edition, so these are specifically designed for Ryzen builds. Let’s take a look and see what they are about!"

VIZIO SmartCast M65-E0 4K UHD HDR Display Review
     Wed, Jan 17 2018 | 9:00A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not all that long ago, high definition 1080p image resolution was heralded as the biggest entertainment improvement since the DVD. Technology continued to tick ahead and, before Blu-ray ever truly became a household standard, ultra high-definition 4K (2160p) displays arrived on scene, and later High Dynamic Range. With Ultra HD Blu-ray and streaming video content now offered in Ultra HD, it makes sense to upgrade. In this article for Benchmark Reviews, we test the 65? VIZIO SmartCast M65-E0 UHD HDR home theater display with Google Chromecast built-in.

Creative Halo Portable Bluetooth Speaker Review
     Tue, Jan 16 2018 | 12:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We have tried the Halo while connected to our Android smartphone, the iPad Air 2 tablet but also on PC via stereo cable; the sound quality is great in terms of highs and mids and we were quite surprised how loud this speaker can get without distortions. Creative has build this product with two separate full-range drivers and advertises “big bass” output; this is quite not the case when compared with Roar units which feature a dedicated subwoofer and also the stereo separation is a bit difficult to distinguish because the two mentioned drivers are quite close together."

ASRock X299 Taichi Intel LGA 2066 Motherboard Review
     Tue, Jan 16 2018 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we tested and overclocked the ASRock X299 Taichi motherboard. After the AMD Ryzen Threadripper ASRock X399 Taichi motherboard we now have the pleasure to test an Intel Core i9-7900X Skylake-X CPU on the ASRock X299 Taichi motherboard. As previously reported in the Intel OC Community, we were able to overclock the Core i9-7900X from 3.3 GHz to almost 5.2 GHz and this is an awesome result in this high-end range. Also great is the basic configuration of the ASRock motherboard, which we have already shown in the Unboxing Video. Let’s now come to the detailed review of the powerful Intel LGA 2066 motherboard from ASRock. We also tested the ASRock X299 Taichi XE motherboard, which will be released on OCinside.de soon.

The noblechairs ICON chair with PU faux leather has the same nice design, good ergonomics, and high build-quality as the much more expensive real leather version. The cherry on top is that it is even more comfortable because of its softer upholstery.
