OCC PAX West 2018 Recap
     Sun, Sep 23 2018 | 9:00A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This year the OverclockersClub team was able to make it to PAX West for an exciting adventure. The Seattle Convention Center was packed with hundreds of booths ranging from Contra-style indie shooters to build-your-own world and shared user-created content type games. Of course, PAX wouldn't have been complete without the big studios and the dozens of panels talking about your favorite subjects. In fact PAX West was so big, I wasn't even able to play half the games over four days! I was able to sneak in a few interviews in between playing games, however."

Sunmae Gaming Chair Review
     Sat, Sep 22 2018 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Over the past year we’ve reviewed a handful of different gaming chairs. These were from brands that were quite well known. Recently we’ve been contacted from quite a few companies selling gaming chairs on Amazon who we had never heard of before. The prices are quite low too. While we originally turned down these offers to review such chairs, we decided to check one out to see if there was a difference between these chairs and the name brand chairs we’ve already taken a look at. So today we have the Sunmae Gaming Chair, which comes in at $164 on Amazon, making one of the cheapest gaming chairs available."

MSI Aegis 3 8th PROTOTYPE! (i7-8700 & 1070 Ti) Review
     Sat, Sep 22 2018 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I’ve reviewed a lot of gaming PCs for KitGuru – to the point where I’ve lost count. I have never seen a PC like the MSI Aegis 3 8th, however, as it is truly unique. I am of course talking about the aggressive, angular design of the machine – you will either love it or hate it. It does have some decent internal hardware, though, including an i7-8700, GTX 1070 Ti and support for Intel’s Optane technology. Is it any good?

MSI B450 Tomahawk
     Fri, Sep 21 2018 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD X470 is the top motherboard chipset for AMD’s AM4 socket but it comes with a noticeable price premium over the second-tier B450 chipset motherboards which, for most applications and users, can be difficult to justify. And unlike Intel, which intentionally removes overclocking from all chipsets below Z370, AMD fully support and endorse overclocking for the B450 platform. That means motherboards like this MSI B450 Tomahawk can offer an attractive suite of connectivity and features, including overclocking capability, for a surprisingly modest price point. Intel’s second tier chipsets for LGA1151v2, like H370 and B360, just can’t compete.
