Cooler Master MasterCase H500P (2017 HAF) Case
     Fri, Oct 13 2017 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yes – HAF is back! After a long period in the metaphorical case wilderness, Cooler Master’s fan-favourite High Air Flow (HAF) series makes a dramatic return in the form of the H500P. Considering the bold design – complete with tempered glass, RGB fans and modular elements – it seems the H500P is just as much about form as it is function. Could this be the defining case of 2017?

Posted by: STAFF
"I’m sure at some point you’ve had a bad PC setup. Maybe moving into a new place, waiting for a new desk to arrive or you just ran out of room. I can remember my horrible PC setups from when I was living at the dorms in college. If you have ever ventured over to the Shitty Battlestations sub-reddit you will find a lot of horrible PC setups. We will are going to pick 20 each month and feature them as 20 of the Worst PC setups for that month. Here are some of the bad ones from September."

Four Cores for Ultrabooks: Core i7-8550U Review
     Fri, Oct 13 2017 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For generations we've put up with sub-10% YOY performance improvements on ultraportables, but with the threat of AMD's competition in the near future, Intel's low-power mobile chips are finally transitioning to quad-cores. Achieved while keeping within the same 15-watt TDP, let me tell you, the boost is huge.

The Sensei 310 is an ambidextrous shell, best suited for those who adopt the claw or finger-tip grip styles, though obviously will adapt to all grip styles and be suitable for lefties all the same.

Logitech PowerPlay Wireless Charging Pad Reviewed With G903 and G703
     Fri, Oct 13 2017 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not satisfied with just producing the best wireless gaming mice on the market, Logitech set out to address the concern of consumers having to charge their mice every couple of days. It's not fun to be in the middle of a gaming session, get notified that your mouse battery is on the verge of death, and then scrambling to get it plugged into a free USB port, but it's part of owning a wireless gaming mouse. Well, at least it was, until Logitech took charge and hit us with a PowerPlay...

MSI X299 Gaming M7 ACK
     Thu, Oct 12 2017 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Overclocking was fairly painless with the X299 Gaming M7 ACK and allowed me to reach up over 4.6GHz on the Core i9 7900X and step over the 5GHz boundary on the Core i7 7740X. The key to overclocking on eight-core and higher chips from Intel is to keep the voltage as low as possible to minimize the thermals. Short-term, a quality AIO will get the job done, but for the long-term you will need to go with a custom water setup. Even so, I found the motherboard was easy to overclock with both manual tuning and by using the EZ OC button to dial up the preset I wanted. MSI uses its Military Class 6 build components to ensure you have a stable long lasting power circuit that should prove to be fine as long as you do not abuse it. Much like everything else while overclocking, you pay your money you take your chances. I find manual tuning to be the way to the highest overclock and MSI's Click BIOS continues to get more granular in the quest to deliver performance while not going off the deep end.”

Microsoft Surface Pro 2017 Review
     Thu, Oct 12 2017 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The newest version of the Surface Pro is the best implementation yet of what many consider to be the top detachable on the market right now. It is the culmination of hits, misses and refinements throughout the years, and while this newest version does not introduce any revolutionary changes, it features a handful of improvements—longer battery life, a more flexible kickstand, etc.—that keeps it in the discussion as arguably the best hybrid mobile device available.

iPhone 8 Plus anyone? It’s that time of the year again – Apple’s firmly established yearly release cycle means today we assess the iPhone 8 Plus. The current flagship, though due to be usurped by the iPhone X very soon, the 8 Plus boasts a new A11 Bionic chip, a dual-camera set up plus a new glass back.

Intel's VROC (NVMe RAID) technology
     Thu, Oct 12 2017 | 9:03A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We've been hearing about Intel's VROC (NVMe RAID) technology for a few months now. ASUS started slipping clues in with their X299 motherboard releases starting back in May. The idea was very exciting, as prior NVMe RAID implementations on Z170 and Z270 platforms were bottlenecked by the chipset's PCIe 3.0 x4 DMI link to the CPU, and they also had to trade away SATA ports for M.2 PCIe lanes in order to accomplish the feat. X99 motherboards supported SATA RAID and even sported four additional ports, but they were left out of NVMe bootable RAID altogether. It would be foolish of Intel to launch a successor to their higher end workstation-class platform without a feature available in two (soon to be three) generations of their consumer platform.

"In keyboard land there are few if any company names more recognizable than Cherry. We know them mostly for the amazing switches they produce and sell to anyone looking to make a top end deck. They of course also make full keyboards themselves and the ones we’ve reviewed here at ThinkComputers have been quite nice. Today we’re checking out one more, a business model, the MX Board 3.0. This flat top full Qwerty board isn’t likely to grab your attention if you’re a gamer. Fortunately, the 3.0 equipped with MX Brown switches, is intended for someone with a set of demands other than flashing RGB LEDs. Read along as we find out if the MX Board 3.0 should be your next business partner."
