GIGABYTE GTX 1050 Ti OC Review
     Fri, Jan 20 2017 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we focus our attention on the GIGABYTE camp and what they have to offer in the GTX 1050 Ti OC. As the name suggests, this graphics card arrives with a factory overclock – featuring a small boost to the GPU clock speed. GTX 1050 Ti OC also benefits from a small footprint allowing it to squeeze into small builds and its dependence on PCI-slot power means this could be a great upgrade for many with an aging PC.

be quiet! Pure Base 600 Chassis review
     Fri, Jan 20 2017 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Germans have gone budget. be quiet! has launched its new Pure Base 600 case as an entry-level model that sits below the Silent Base and Dark Base cases we saw in 2016 and 2017. As you will see in our video, our initial impressions were a bit … glum. There are no windows and certainly no tempered glass, so basically you get a black box that looks a bit plasticky. Pull off the two side panels and the interior is an open design without a power supply cover where it appears that everything is on show and there are few features of interest. You can see the optical drive bay housing and the three separate hard drive bays but perhaps the most exciting thing is the inclusion of two Pure Wings 2 fans, 140mm at front and 120mm at the rear. At this stage in the game KitGuru was ready to throw in the towel and award the Pure Base 600 a ‘Dull but Nice’ award and move on to the next review.

AORUS 200 Series Motherboards
     Thu, Jan 19 2017 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, is proud to announce its new AORUS Gaming line of Motherboards which support Intel’s® 7th / 6th Gen Core processors. These motherboards, designed for enthusiast, allow for customization and personalization through unique features such as liquid cooling support, fully customizable RGB LEDs as well as a new and improved smart fan controls which are all meticulously incorporated into this platform to give gamers more control as well as the ability for them to express themselves.

For the past few years, gamers have been focused on the customization of their PC; AORUS Gaming Motherboards embodies that idea. AORUS is a premium gaming brand focused on customization and personalization for all users but most importantly gamers. Whether for an enthusiast, power-user, or a casual gamer, the AORUS motherboard is the perfect board for them.

“Personalization and customization is something we know our customers want, we recognize that because of all the different case mods we see using GIGABYTE motherboards,” said Henry Kao, Vice President of GIGABYTE’s Motherboard Business Unit. “Not only does this ideal stay true to GIGABYTE, but also with the AORUS brand, that is why we continually strive to make products that push the envelope—satisfying the consumers demand.”

7th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors Powered Motherboards

The AORUS Gaming Motherboards fully support the new Intel 7th Gen Core processors and is also compatible with previous 6th Gen Core Processors. With the new 7th Gen platform, AORUS Gaming Motherboards offer increased performance, rich & immersive experiences and versatile and fast I/O. G-Chill and G-Frost - Cool from Within

Exclusively on the Z270X-Gaming 9 and Z270X-Gaming 8 GIGABYTE has included integrated liquid cooling blocks. These water blocks, G-Chill and G-Frost from Bitspower and EK Waterblocks, respectively, can support both passive and active cooling. These AORUS Gaming Motherboards are ready for gamers to push the limits in performance especially with overclocking.

RGB Fusion – Lighting Your System the Way You Want

Express yourself with AORUS’ RGB Fusion, a totally redesigned lighting system that will allow users to customize their system lights to the way they want. With support for RGBW LED light strips, the AORUS Gaming Motherboards have millions of colors and combinations to choose from, making every system as unique as its owner. In addition to the white LED support on the LED pin headers, users can modify multiple sections and zones on their motherboards giving their system even more personality. Select models even have an Accent LED Overlay that can be swapped based on personal preference.

Smart Fan 5 – The Smart Way to Do Fan Control

Airflow is one of the most important elements of any PC and with Smart Fan 5 users and gamers alike can have full control of their system’s fans. With all fan headers now acting as Hybrid Fan Headers, DIY users do not need to confuse themselves as to which header does what, as all pin headers can automatically detect what type of device is connected.

To further support the various cooling options now available to users today specific fan headers support up to 2A of power for larger power hungry fans or pumps.

Since space within a chassis is limited AORUS’ Smart Fan 5 takes advantage of its powerful software to allow users to set fans to respond to thermal sources other than the factory default settings. With interchangeable thermal sensors cooling can be a breeze, select motherboards offer two additional thermistors to keep other components cool within the system.

AORUS Gaming Motherboards will debut at CES 2017. To find out other great features these boards have to offer be sure to follow GIGABYTE on social media.
