Corsair Carbide 678C Review: A Quiet Case with a Mission
     Thu, Apr 18 2019 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I love running water-cooling loops as much as the next guy. It all starts with the right case. You almost always need to visualize the final product before actually starting your project. It hasn’t been easy to find the right case for me lately. With numerous case options, you can really have difficult time picking the starting point. Corsair Carbide …

Next@Acer 2019 Global Press Conference
     Wed, Apr 17 2019 | 4:38P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"On April 11, 2019, Acer held its 2019 Next@Acer Global Press Conference in Brooklyn, NY. I was pretty excited to attend, as Acer has been one of my favorite companies in recent years. I'm still using the Acer Predator X34 I reviewed over three years ago and since that time, I've recommended Acer laptops to several family members and friends, all of whom have been very pleased. So what did Acer have in store for the rest of 2019? Acer posted the entire 64-minute presentation to YouTube, which I'll include at the very end, but if you want a synopsis of the highlights, keep reading!"

The WD Blue NVMe is WD's new entry-level SSD using the M.2 PCIe x2 interface and 3D TLC flash. With a price of only $73 for the reviewed 500 GB version it's one of the most affordable drives on the market that still delivers very decent performance. We saw no thermal-throttling, even when fully loaded and completely uncooled.

Ryzen 5 2600X vs. Ryzen 7 1700
     Wed, Apr 17 2019 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we recently updated our Best CPUs feature, we noticed that access to affordable first-gen Ryzen processors remains an attractive option for many. The Ryzen 7 1700 is a standout option for an 8-core/16-thread part selling for $160, meaning you can either buy the R7 1700 or the R5 2600 at the same price.

Easy Upgrades: Hard Drive to Solid State Drive
     Wed, Apr 17 2019 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Fast forward to today, and this laptop has seen its use drop off significantly, with the major complaint being “it’s so slow to start up, and it takes forever to do anything”. This is exactly what I was expecting to hear about this time when we made the purchase, and thankfully, I had a plan in mind at that time. This article will be a guide to that plan; replacing the factory HDD with an SSD for improved boot times and overall usability improvements. If this sounds like a scenario you are currently experiencing, sit back and read along, as we go through all the steps of upgrading from a hard drive to a solid state drive."

MSI MEG Z390 Godlike Motherboard Review
     Wed, Apr 17 2019 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It may seem a bit late to the Z390 party, especially since most of the guests have already gone home. However, we’ve been eagerly awaiting this MSI motherboard, so we’re just going to say it was fashionably late. As one of the most tricked-out motherboards this generation, this ultra-high-end solution comes with more features that I doubt even this review will be able to capture. It’s not cheap, but at the same time, you’re paying (a lot) more, but you’re getting a lot more stuff included too. It’s a bit more than your typical Fortnite 1080p gaming rig would need, that’s for sure, but if you’re all about the extreme, read on, as this one is going to be pretty special.

Maingear Vybe 2019 Review: Fast, Quiet, Clean, And Ready To Ship
     Tue, Apr 16 2019 | 4:58P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the advantages to owning a custom PC from a boutique builder is the meticulous attention to detail. Tight cable management is not just a perk, it is an expectation when paying a premium for a boutique shop to assemble your rig with off-the-shelf components, and having to wait a bit longer compared to buying from a bulk OEM is an inherent trade off. Or is it? Maingear, a stalwart in the boutique space, would argue otherwise. Earlier this month at PAX East, Maingear announced what it is calling the Vybe Enthusiast Platform. You might already be familiar with the Vybe name -- it is the least expensive line of desktop PCs in Maingear's stable, with prices starting at an affordable $699...

Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS RTX 2080 Ti Matrix is the world's first graphics card with fully integrated watercooling. ASUS has managed the seemingly impossible and crammed waterblock, pump and radiator into a triple-slot graphics card. The Matrix is also highly overclocked, making it the fastest RTX 2080 Ti we ever tested.
