Power supplies are one of the most neglected components in PC builds. To the eyes of a consumer, any brand with the appropriate wattage will do. However, there are a few other factors that affect system builders and enthusiasts. Wattage, efficiency, cables & its modularity, the fan, price, and even the aesthetics dictate a power user's choice for a power supply. Today, we have the Cooler Master MasterWatt 750 - a semi-modular power supply with 80 PLUS Bronze certification.
SSDs are getting more and more abundant these days, but there still remain a lot of smaller niche criteria that we consumers have when it comes to custom PCs. Take this SSD for example. The PenDrive M.2 SATA III SSD is catered towards those who want a SATA III-based M.2 2280 SSD with larger capacities but on a tight budget.
Power supplies. They're the one component that not many people take a look at when it comes to building a brand new PC. Here we have the SilverStone ET650-B - a power supply that is budget-oriented with 80 PLUS Bronze certification. Let's have a look at what the SilverStone ET650-B has to offer.
As the title suggests, there's no better way to put it. I mean, that's literally what Western Digital put it as the title. They've successfully developed four bits per cell, which they are referring to it as X4. Western Digital has developed 64-layer 3D NAND BiCS3 X4 technology!
It's the year 2017. Nothing is complete without RGB LEDs these days, and your PC case is no exception - no matter how old your PC case already is. This is where RGB LED strips like the SilverStone LS02 comes in. Get a unit of the SilverStone LS02, wire them up and stick them in your case. Instantly, your gaming rig will look much flashier.
We've seen and heard NVMe SSDs thermal throttling. It's something that we all worry about, and want to avoid when we're getting our own NVMe SSD. I mean, these speedy storage devices aren't cheap - and thermal throttling can diminish its speed. Well, here we'll tell you how to prevent NVMe SSD thermal throttling.
In a little video that was just uploaded a little over an hour ago is where Lisa Su, the CEO of AMD, talks about the upcoming Threadripper and Ryzen 3. Lisa talks about the launch dates, performance, and demos the performance of these chips too.
PC cases are all the rage these days, especially during Computex 2017 too. The theme since last year's RGB outbreak is simple - transparency. That's where the BitFenix Aurora excels at - it's a case that's meant to be beautiful with its aesthetics and internals. Just how well does it fare out for a PC builder? Let's find out.
NVMe SSDs are becoming more and more common. CPU and motherboard manufacturers know this and hence the one big argument that says Threadripper wins X299 is the PCIe lane counts directly to the CPU. We won't get into that for this review, but let's take a look at the Plextor M8Se NVMe SSD - specifically the 256GB Plextor M8SeGN, the one that I have here. It's an M.2 form factor NVMe SSD and no heatsink.
