There comes a time where NVMe SSDs are simple add-on cards that plug into the PCIe slot. Then thermals come into play, and that means heatsinks are needed. As it time goes by, the heatsink designs evolve to look good too. Then, the uprising of flashy RGB systems last year happened. The Plextor M9PeY is the culmination of those things, and it's the pinnacle of Plextor's SSDs.
First of all, let me start off by saying what a mouthful of a name that Cooler Master has opted for! The Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240L RGB AIO cooler is their latest addition to the roster of AIO coolers that Cooler Master has in their lineup. This new AIO cooler sports RGB fans and RGB pump - hence the "RGB" moniker in the name.
There are many cases in the market these days - and the brand new Cooler Master MasterBox MB600L that was announced here is one of them. Now, we have one in our labs - so let's take a look at what's good and what's not about this budget-oriented PC case.
Here we have a CPU cooler from REEVEN - a company that's based in Taiwan that is focused on PC cooling solutions. They have a bunch of PC cases, coolers, fans, and even accessories like fan controllers in their catalog. The REEVEN Ouranos is one of the coolers that REEVEN currently has in the market, and we'll be taking a look at it today.
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.
