Raspberry Pi 3 Review
     Tue, Jul 10 2018 | 4:19P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some time ago we already have reviewed the first Raspberry Pi. With the exception of sophisticated multimedia applications, this could meet all our requirements for a single-board computer. Meanwhile, miniaturization is proceeding. Therefore we would like to take a closer look at the Raspberry Pi 3. This is not shrunk by the board size, but offers more features and performance than the previous models. A further advantage should not go unmentioned at this point: According to current knowledge, the Raspberry Pi 3 is immune to the security holes Meltdown and Spectre! We now find out on OCinside.de what this small miracle of performance can do.

GEEEK A30 @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Jul 04 2018 | 9:00A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I hope by now most of you have figured out that I love SFF builds. Over the years we have built a new Lunchbox build with the goal of going smaller and building an even more capable gaming rig to take to LANs. So I am always on the lookout for new and different cases that might fit the bill. Well, early this year I came across a company called GEEEK that has a few small ITX cases including one that really caught my eye that used a FlexATX power supply to save space. That was the A30 and GEEEK was nice enough to send one over to check out. With a unique extrusion based construction they were able to keep the costs down. With a budget-friendly price and an acrylic construction, Its looks good. But is it easy to build and how does it all perform when together? That is what I want to find out today.

Maingear F131 Review: A High Performance Gaming
     Mon, Jun 11 2018 | 9:03A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Boutique, custom-built Gaming PCs from some of the more prominent brands are almost always a cut above mainstream pre-built computers from larger OEMs. However, even among premium boutique brands, build quality, design aesthetics and cost can vary greatly. Maingear has delivered its share of ultra-high end killer gaming rigs to us for evaluation over the years, but perhaps nothing so custom and so premium in design as the machine we're about to dig deep on today.

"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.

Zotac MEK1 Black (i7-7700, GTX 1070Ti) Mini Gaming PC Review
     Thu, Jun 07 2018 | 9:00A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this review we take a look at the Zotac MEK1 mini gaming PC. The MEK1 manages to use an ultra-slim Mini ITX form factor without sacrificing performance as it still features an i7-7700 and a GTX 1070 Ti. We tested it across a range of games and benchmarks to see if it is worth the £1439 asking price.

MSI Infinite X (8700K & 1080 Ti) System Review
     Wed, May 30 2018 | 3:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI Infinite X is a pre-built gaming PC that you can pick up locally, provided you live somewhere near a John Lewis department store. The hardware is a classic combination of Intel Core i7-8700K and Nvidia graphics and naturally enough both the motherboard and graphics card are manufactured by MSI.

Dell Inspiron Gaming Desktop 5680 Review
     Tue, May 15 2018 | 3:45P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are a litany of reasons why you might consider buying a gaming PC rather than rolling your own rig, including cost. Yes, many graphics cards have recently settled down closer to MSRP, but who knows if they will go back up again? On top of that, system memory is still trending on the high side (compared to a year or two ago). For the most part, pre-built systems have been somewhat sheltered from these volatile markets relative to the channel. That means the opportunity still exists to get into PC gaming at a reasonable price with a pre-built PC; Dell's Inspiron Gaming Desktop (5680) is a prime example. In fact, the Inspiron Gaming line has consistently represented one of the best values in PC gaming...
