Over at Computex 2017, Cooler Master showed us a bunch of new products - including the successors to both the HAF and COSMOS series, namely the H500P and C700P on their 25th birthday. Needless to say, I'm excited about both these cases as I've been using the HAF932 for almost a decade now, yet I always have a soft spot for the COSMOS series. Then, the new COMSOS C700P came to us - and we gave it a whirl, despite its super heavy build.
We've heard the news since March of 2017. AMD is back in the game with their new lineup of Ryzen processors. The Ryzen 3 is the last in the series to be announced, with the Ryzen 3 1200 being the cheapest among the entire family. Priced at only RM519, how well does the Ryzen 3 1200 actually perform?
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.
