Two Amazing Features for the Raptor
Razer really went all out with their Raptor Gaming Monitor. Even though they could have sold the product on branding alone, they decided to put some features that are excellent choices for any panel. The first one is the clean cable extensions routed nicely in the stand. Not only does this make the cable clutter look great, but makes plugging cables in that much easier too. Of course, the Raptor doesn’t actually need extensions to make connections easier. Continue reading “Razer Raptor Gaming Monitor Revealed at CES 2019”
Eisbaer for High End AIO CPU Cooling
CES 2019 was a great time, but nothing says custom PCs like liquid cooling. We got the chance to see what Alphcool was announcing. For starters, we have the Eisbaer Extreme AIO. The big thing that separates this cooler from the rest is the solid copper radiator. Even if a cooler bypasses aluminum for the rad, a mix of copper and brass is often used to help reduce costs.

Completely Liquid Cooled
Heat is an important factor for rendering or mining stations. When you stick 8 graphics cards in a single system, you’re going to generate a lot of heat. Azultec is developing a product that should be huge for rendering, mining, or lovers of high end liquid cooled systems. The Cube 300 has 8x GTX 1070s and a custom water cooling loop made from Alphacool Components. Needless to say, Azultec has found a great way to handle heat on 8 higher end graphics cards in a way custom PC builders like myself can really appreciate.

External Meets Encryption, SSD style…
When looking into the storage world, you’ll soon realize that SSDs will eventually take over as the default storage medium; it makes complete sense that we also have external SSDs that are becoming the norm. With that in mind, iStorage-UK is bringing us a super secure, encrypted SSD (solid state drive) that is targeted at the pros on the move with sensitive data that needs to be accessed rapidly; meet the diskAshur 2…

If the Rumors are True
Leaks are coming around about AMD’s 3rd gen of Ryzen CPUs. If the specs are accurate on the 3600X, I see Ryzen 5 being the ultimate processor for gaming systems. Here’s what we know for sure right now. Not only is AMD going to be using the 7nm manufacturing process, but this is a true architectural update. The Ryzen 2000 series was just a refresh of the first release. With the 3000 series, we’ll actually see what is likely to be a whole new Ryzen. Continue reading “Ryzen 5 3600X Will Rule Gaming PCs”
E-Win allowed me to pick my poison and I decided to test out the pricier end of the spectrum. The E-Win Flash XL struck me as the pinnacle of what the company had to offer. Is it everything I ever wanted? Is it too much? Is it necessary? Stop asking so many questions.

Azza, or the Borg?
Who designed their Cube better? The Borg had an impressive space ship that was easily blown up in First Contact. Azza has RGB. Clearly, the Cube 802 is the winner since RGB would likely have given the Borg victory over Starfleet. Also, the Borg is fictional, but the Cube 802 is an excellent looking case from Azza. We’ll have to see if the rest of the design lives up to the impressive looks. Let’s take a quick look at a statement from the company, then dive right in.

Now you no longer have to have such fears, as encrypted storage is getting more and more affordable as time goes on. We are looking at another of iStorage-UK’s devices which comes in the flavor of a diskAshur 2 with a 1TB hard drive enclosed.

Building the Ultimate Case
I love Crossfire and SLI. I understand it’s not the most practical thing in the world, but having two graphics cards in my system just looks right. The problem comes when I need to cool things down. As you can imagine, a Crossfire system can get heated up pretty fast. I’ve used many a chassis, but I’ve yet to find the ultimate case for cooling and seeing my build. Continue reading “Ultimate Case Design, Cooling and Display”
Imagine you don’t know what case this review is about. Now, I tell you I have a really high quality, solid metal super tower to review. On top of that, I mention that it has dual system capacity and great looks. You probably thought of Phanteks, or even questioned if Case Labs made a come back. I’m talking about Azza!
