Posted by: STAFF
We check out the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 iCX 8G, and heck yeah this is not your regular one. Meet the all custom, cooled and tweaked EVGA "For-The-Win2" Edition. This SKU is a more premium version that comes with some new features, e.g. read sensors everywhere. We'll heck out the 8 GB product fitted with a nice and impressive two slot cooler, some extra LED functionality and a product that comes with some sexy out of the box clock frequencies.

be quiet! Pure Base 600
     Fri, Apr 28 2017 | 12:27P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The be quiet! Pure Base 600 is aimed at the purists out there. There are no colored elements or a front door, just a clean and understated design. However, do not let that fool you as the chassis offers excellent liquid-cooling capability and a great amount of storage flexibility, all while being quiet, especially thanks to the built-in fan controller.

XFX Radeon RX 580 8GB GTS Black Edition
     Fri, Apr 28 2017 | 12:23P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”What surprised me most about this card when I was overclocking was that I was not able to get it above a 1440MHz clock speed no matter what I tried. This is 88MHz less than I was able to push out of the PowercColor card I just looked at last week. Kind of a downer after those lofty results, but not every GPU or CPU is going to deliver stunning OC results. That does not mean another card will overclock better or worse. It just means this card was not the best overclocker. Temperatures were not a limiting factor while overclocking this card, with a maximum temperature of 57 °C while overclocked, putting it just three degrees warmer than the RX 480 GTR. The four massive copper composite heat pipes that carry the thermal load to the large fin array in XFX's Quad Com heat sink package coupled with the 100mm Supercell fans really do work to keep the silicon, memory, and digital VRM cool. If anything should go wrong with the card, XFX has you covered for three years with its limited warranty. Just in case.”

AMD Ryzen 5 1600X Overclocked Benchmark Results At 4.1GHz
     Fri, Apr 28 2017 | 12:22P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A recent trip to the local Micro Center location in St. Louis, Missouri showed that all the AMD Ryzen 5 6-core processors were sold out and rightly so as the Ryzen 5 1600X and Ryzen 5 1600 are both exceptional values. The AMD Ryzen 5 1600X is the flagship processor of the Ryzen 5 series and boasts 6-cores and 12-threads of processing goodness at over 4GHz clock speeds for just $249.99. AMD released the first quad-core processor (Phenom II X4) in January 2009, so many enthusiasts are ready to add more cores to their system here in 2017. No wonder they are sold out locally!

How to get LAN Sponsors @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Apr 28 2017 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a lot of the aspects of hosting a LAN event, you can normally find someone with experience in the area. That isn’t always the case when it comes to getting and keeping event sponsors. Most people fly blind when they start and frankly it leads to emails that if you look back later you would be extremely embarrassing. Even though I have always done well with sponsors, looking back on some of my emails I wish I could go back and just stop myself. Well, I don’t have a time machine, at least not yet, so for now I will settle for stopping some of you before you make mistakes. Hopefully, with a few tips I can help everyone host better events. Better events all over will lead to more events for everyone to go to and we can help keep the LAN tradition alive and well. So hang on I’ve put together a whole bunch of information, I hope it helps.

Alienware 13 Review
     Fri, Apr 28 2017 | 9:02A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
you want a reasonably small and portable gaming laptop, the Alienware 13 is one of the leading options on the market. With its 13.3-inch display, the footprint of this laptop is smaller than a typical 15-inch laptop, and if you're willing to put up with extra thickness and weight, it's possible to use it as a portable workstation instead of an ultraportable.

Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4-3200C16 32GB Review
     Thu, Apr 27 2017 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their Vengeance LED modules Corsair has some good looking DRAM modules on the market. The customer receives a red illumination, which in combination with the black heatspreader, looks rather compelling. Apart from that the specs are interesting as well and DDR4-3200 should definitely pack some punch.
