    Intel Haswell (Core i5 4670K & i7 4790K) versus Ryzen & Coffee Lake: worth upgrading?

    Review - Tuesday 02/20/2018 - 03:07 AM

    ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 review: costly performance Routers have been commonplace for many years, and in terms of design the trend is towards “as discreet as possible” rather than “eye-catching”. The exception is the gaming routers, which are aimed at a target group that is known for liking some show pieces. ASUS, along with other manufacturers, cater to this group with their range of extreme routers. So far, none is as extreme as the ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AC5300. Read more

    AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 CrossFire review: more niche than ever before Back in august, when AMD launched its Radeon RX Vega graphics card, it was not yet possible to combine multiple cards in a CrossFire configuration. About a month later, a driver patch came which included the multi-GPU support. Due to many big releases in the last couple of months, we did not have much time take a closer look at this, so we shall rectify this now. Read more

    Corsair H115i Pro and H150i Pro RGB review: silence is key Corsair recently introduced twol new water coolers: the H115i Pro RGB and the H150i Pro RGB. At first glance, these new 280 and 360 mm models look very similar to the existing H150i, but a closer look shows that Corsair has completely redesigned the coolers. The main purpose of this? To achieve the quietest possible operation. And although Corsair doesn't say it outright, they're mainly looking to... Read more

    LG 32GK850G review: LG is back in the gaming monitor game The last couple of years, the Korean Giant LG, just like its big competitor from the same country, ignored the market for gaming monitors. They mostly focused on 21:9 super widescreen displays, with the exception of a single model. Meanwhile, more and more gaming monitors from the competition appeared on the market, including some models from Samsung last year. LG could no longer wait with their answer and recently they introduced the 32GK850G, thet first in a series of new gaming models that mark a new start in this market.

    AOC Q3279VWF review: good and true

    Review - Monday 01/29/2018 - 11:59 PM

    AOC Q3279VWF review: good and true It was one of the items that really caught the attention in the Black Friday sale last year – the AOC Q3279VWF. This 32 inch wide quad HD (2560x1440) monitor with a VA panel had a price tag of just 199 dollars. But this was not just a sale price, this price lingered after the sale passed. Even now, our Price comparison shows many shops that are still selling it for the same price instead of the (not that much higher) recommended retail price of 269 dollars. It’s time to find out if this is too good to be true or a really good deal. Read more

    M.2-heatsinks review: which SSD-cooler performs best?

    Review - Sunday 01/28/2018 - 11:59 PM

    M.2-heatsinks review: which SSD-cooler performs best? Fast m.2-SSDs have the tendency to become quite hot. If you are reading or writing a lot of data, an NVMe-SSD will more often than not throttle in order to keep the temperature within acceptable limits. Motherboard manufacturers thought of something to prevent this: nowadays many motherboards come with heatsinks that you can stick on your SSD, while cooling brands such as EK even sell standalone m.2-heatsinks. Although, do these metal plates in all shapes and sizes even work? We experienced a hot afternoon. Read more

If you are looking for a new monitor right now, but still want to be sure of hdr-compatibility, the BenQ EW277HDR is an interesting option. While the combination of size and resolution might not appeal to the imagination, upon further inspection it turns out to be a rather attractive monitor.  Read more
