I've always been wanting to get an aftermarket air cooler. Noctua NH-D15 was a great candidate, because why not go for the most well-reputed air cooler out there? For those who had been following my PC case reviews which we started off not too long ago, then you might have seen the hideous Intel stock cooler in there. Well, don't judge me.

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.
Not too long ago, we covered the news where BIOSTAR announced their whole racing series of motherboards for Intel's Z270 platform. Here, they've announced these racing motherboards again - but for the Ryzen platform. This is the BIOSTAR Racing AM4 series of motherboards for the Ryzen platform.
Philips is probably the one brand that many people wouldn't be thinking about when it comes to PC monitors. Even I don't - but Philips Monitor want to change that, and that's why they're bringing in 3 new monitors into the Malaysian market this April 2017.
