ASUS Prime X470-PRO Motherboard Review
     Mon, Aug 13 2018 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When it comes to ASUS motherboards you have quite a lot of choices, many users opt for their Republic of Gamers boards, but their Prime line is actually quite good. We’ve used a “Prime” motherboard as our baseline board for processor testing for both Intel and AMD for the past couple of years. These boards might not have all of the flash that the ROG series does, but they are extremely reliable and are still packed with features. For the Ryzen refresh the main “Prime” board from ASUS is their Prime X470-PRO. This board features a slick design with silver heatsinks and an integrated M.2 cooler as well. You also have support for DDR4 3466 MHz memory, USB 3.1, dual M.2 slots, and even some RGB lighting. Is this the board you need for your Ryzen build? Read on as we find out!"

Top 5 AMD B450 Motherboards
     Mon, Aug 13 2018 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the first AMD B450 motherboards just popping up, truth be told, there aren't that many good ones to choose from, certainly not nearly as many as we'd like and not as many as there could be. Asus and Gigabyte options are somewhat disappointing so far, Asrock has done a decent job, but it's MSI who really turned things around. We hope these picks will help narrow down your search for the perfect B450 motherboard.

Cougar Phontum Gaming Headset
     Sun, Aug 12 2018 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Ah the gaming headset, just like any type of gaming product these days the market is saturated making it hard for you the consumer to choose which headset is the best for you. Typically as consumers we grade products based on their price, but a lot of the time the quality and performance do not match the price. Today we are checking out a gaming headset that comes in at a very affordable $49, but offers some amazing performance. That headset is the Cougar Phontum which features 53 mm dual-chamber drivers, two different sizes of included earpads, and a sleek design. Cougar says this headset was “created for those who want to enjoy great audio in long gaming sessions” and we are going to put that to the test."

MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC
     Sun, Aug 12 2018 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"There are only minor differences between the AMD X470 and B450 chipsets used on the new MSI B450 motherboards; you get two fewer Gen2.0 PCI-E Lanes, four fewer SATA ports and no SLI support. You still get Cross Fire support but only 2way, the same as the B350 chipset. What you gain is the StoreMI and Precision Boost Overdrive, so you can use the free StoreMI program with an inexpensive 2TB HDD and 256GB SSD drive to gain enhanced storage capacity and speed."

SilverStone Nightjar NJ450-SXL PSU Review
     Fri, Aug 10 2018 | 2:21P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SilverStone was the first to release a passive SFX-L unit based on a platform provided by Enhance Electronics. The NJ450-SXL is fully modular, highly efficient and its overall performance is very good. It is built like a tank since it is surrounded by heatsinks and the only downside is the stiff price tag, which is partly due to the innovative design.
