ASUS ROG STRIX Z270G Gaming mATX Motherboard Review
     Sat, Mar 25 2017 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most enthusiast look at the standard ATX motherboard because it usually includes more features than their little brothers mATX or mITX. Over the past several generations of motherboards, that has been changing to where a new mATX motherboard can include nearly every feature that a standard ATX motherboard can. However, due to the size difference there are a few things that are cut out, mainly extra SATA/SATA-Express ports and support for Three-way SLI or CrossFire. Out of ASUS’ nine different Intel Z270 motherboards, there is only one that is a mATX board, the ASUS ROG STRIX Z270G Gaming.

Roccat Suora FX gaming keyboard review
     Sat, Mar 25 2017 | 9:00A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Roccat has been one of the top gaming peripheral makers for a long now and looks to continue that reign with its new board, the Suora FX. Built with the same RGB backlighting and mechanical functionality of its predecessors, the Suora FX goes the barebones route and tears off all the unneeded plastic to give you a compact, but versatile gaming board.

     Fri, Mar 24 2017 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ryzen has been on the market for a little over a week now, and it’s already off to an impressive start. While there have been some bugs with memory performance, some of which that are still to be fixed at the time of writing, we’ve seen that these issues have done little to slow down the gaming performance of the Ryzen hardware, as tested in our GTX 1080 Ti feature. We’ve already put the Ryzen R7 1800X through its paces, and today we’re taking a look at the bottom of the R7 range, the R7 1700.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands Review - PC Gameplay And Performance
     Thu, Mar 23 2017 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ghost Recon: Wildands takes gamers back to squad-based tactical shooter country, albeit this time we’re dropping in hot, to cartel-controlled Bolivia. Our mission is to gather intel to systematically take down each cartel leader until the head of the snake is dispatched. Ditching the futuristic theme of the previous Ghost Recon installment, Wildlands is firmly set in the present and brings a new, completely open-world setting to the franchise, in what Ubisoft is calling "one of the biggest games it has ever published." That’s a promise we can attest to. It’s also one of the most immersive and visually stunning games the company has made with the widest variety of richly detailed locations and environments for players to test their skills in...

ASUS ROG Maximus IX Formula
     Thu, Mar 23 2017 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”With very few exceptions, the Maximus IX Formula is another step forward in the evolution of ASUS' ROG brand. The red and black theme never gets old and you can surely stick to it if you want to do so. However, ASUS' AURA Lighting and AURA SYNC technology takes the visuals a little bit further, well, a lot further away from the red and black, actually. Using ASUS' AURA Lighting controls you can set the LED accents on the Maximus IX Formula to any color in the rainbow with up to nine different lighiting patterns. It's interesting just to sit back and watch it. To take the RGB lighting control a bit further, you can connect RGB LED strips to the pair of headers that are also managed by ASUS AURA. If you purchase ASUS SYNC compatible peripherals you can essentially match the LED lighting theme throughout your ecosystem. Built with a decided bent toward gamers, the ROG brand is also the premier overclocking solution in ASUS' product stack. Built with hardware that supports overclocking and the software package, and UEFI BIOS to back it all up, you can get the most out of your installed hardware. In the two comparison boards, my Core i7 7700K is, at best, a 4.95GHz chip that takes about 1.375v to 1.39v to maintain stability at that level. Thanks to ASUS' Extreme Engine Digi+ all-digital VRM, TPU, and Pro Clock chips, this CPU does indeed hit 5GHz for daily use with an applied 1.36v. By manually tuning the clock speeds to 102MHz x 49, 5GHz was easy to reach, with a cache ratio of 45 and memory speed of close to 3700MHz."
