AMD Ryzen Memory Tweaking & Overclocking Guide
     Sun, Mar 24 2019 | 4:02P | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Memory overclocking has a significant impact on performance of AMD Ryzen powered machines, but the alleged complexity of memory tweaking on this platform, largely fueled by misinformation and lack of documentation, has kept some enthusiasts away from it. We want to change this.

ROCCAT Vulcan 100 Mechanical RGB Keyboard Review
     Sun, Mar 24 2019 | 4:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" We have used the keyboard to write several documents and run a few games; the new Titan switches have a similar feel to MX Brown and thanks to the low profile design and the 1.8mm actuation point, the Vulcan 100 can keep up even during intensive gaming sessions. The keyboard is not as silent as we would have wanted (for that you’d better go with a Cherry MX Silent variant or LP Speed), but during LAN parties this aspect is not that important. "

Aukey KM-G6 Mechanical Keyboard
     Sun, Mar 24 2019 | 4:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Aukey effectively replaces their excellent value for money KM-G8 keyboard with the new KM-G6. It keeps the same Outemu Blue mechanical switches and doubleshot-injected keycaps, while adding multi-color backlighting with many lighting effects and onboard controls at that same attractive price point.

Razer BlackWidow (2019) Keyboard Review
     Sun, Mar 24 2019 | 9:02A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Razer has released a whole host of BlackWidow keyboards over the years – from the original back in 2010 that didn’t even have RGB lighting, right up to the BlackWidow Elite that is decked out with pretty much every feature you could wish for. With such a large range of keyboards all coming under the same BlackWidow family, things understandably get a bit confusing for the consumer. That’s why Razer is trying to simplify matters by releasing a new, full size board known simply as the ‘BlackWidow’.

MSI's GeForce GTX 1660 Gaming X is the company's top GTX 1660 offering, with certain high-end segment-first features that include back-plate, idle fan-stop, and the company's highest factory-overclock. In our testing we saw amazing noise levels, better than any other GTX 1660.

ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro SSD Review: Strong Performance
     Sat, Mar 23 2019 | 4:03P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we evaluated the original ADATA XPG SX8200 SSD last year, we found the drive to be a solid value that offered good performance for the money. So, when ADATA mentioned that it had an updated version of the XPG SX8200 available for review that should perform even better, we were eager to check it out. The aptly named ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro is similar to the original drive in many ways, but incorporates a new controller and firmware that cranks performance up a few notches and adds some new features...

ROCCAT Vulcan 120 AIMO Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Sat, Mar 23 2019 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The last time we looked at a ROCCAT keyboard, we were quite impressed with the Suora FX. So when we had the chance to take a look at the Vulcan 120 AIMO, we were eagerly anticipating its arrival. Packed with RGB goodness, the Vulcan 120 AIMO is a full-sized, 104-key specimen. So far it sounds like a pretty standard keyboard, but the Vulcan series is actually ROCCAT’s first keyboard to use their own “Titan” switches, which were designed from the ground up for gamers. If you are in the market for a new mechanical gaming keyboard, follow along as we take a look at the ROCCAT Vulcan 120 AIMO."

Corsair Crystal 680X PC Chassis
     Sat, Mar 23 2019 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair returns with their new Crystal 680X RGB PC chassis, which we review. The Crystal series has been a favorite of ours, spacious, dual chambers and fantastic looks can be achieved with it. In the year 2019, of course, a chassis needs a bit of an RGB brain.

Corsair Crystal 680X RGB
     Sat, Mar 23 2019 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair Crystal 680X is the grown-up version of their 280X chassis. This bigger variant can not only hold a full-size system, but also offers better liquid-cooling support, comes with four fans, and plenty of additional storage. It looks like Corsair has taken their trusted and true approach and applied it to the Crystal series to give those who want a flashy cube chassis an extremely viable option.

Corsair Carbide 678C
     Sat, Mar 23 2019 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair Carbide 678C is meant to refresh the silent line of cases of the brand with a new, modern take using updated internals. With plenty of liquid-cooling capabilities, a fan controller, and wide body, it checks off a lot of points for enthusiasts, which may end up taking away from its intended target audience: the silent type.

Earlier this year we first put Nvidia's support for FreeSync monitors to the test, grabbed every FreeSync monitor we had in the office, and verified that in all cases adaptive sync worked as expected. LG recently sent us 5 of their latest FreeSync monitors, which we've used to revisit Nvidia's FreeSync support.
