When Ryzen was first debuted worldwide, AMD sent out a set of hardware for many reviewers - which includes a Ryzen 7 CPU, Corsair LPX RAM kit, an X370 motherboard, and most importantly, a special edition Noctua NH-U12S that's made for AMD's AM4 socket only. But again, you can get the basic edition Noctua NH-U12S and get the AM4 mounting plate separately for free. But then again - how does it really perform?
Here's the deal - with ASUS's announcement on Monday, you might think "hey, that's all from ASUS, right?" I thought the same, but it's not. But nope - here's the Computex 2017 ASUS ROG announcements, which brings a lot of new brand new products.
When it comes to motherboards these days, its aesthetics is important. The all new ASUS X299 motherboards are built around that mantra, and obviously still maintains ASUS's quality of hardware.
First off, congratulations to Cooler Master for staying active in the scene for the past 25 years! More impressively, is that the constant improvement and reaching out to more fields of PCs over the years. As a celebration of their 25th Anniversary, Computex 2017 Cooler Master brings out some fantastic announcements with new products!
While Computex is happening today, Kingston announced their brand new KC1000 M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD ahead of time. The Kingston KC1000 does offer something special for those who are willing to pay the price for it - and here's what it does.
I have a confession to make. I'm currently eyeing a few AM4 motherboards, and I'm pretty much settled for B350 chipset in terms of features. When it comes to motherboards, however, there are many other useful features like USB 3.1 Gen 2 not included with lower-tiered B350 boards, or just plain crappy VRMs. Then come the ASUS ROG STRIX X370-F and ROG STRIX B350-F motherboards.
When it comes to the challenge of creating a tiny little cooler for tiny little builds, it's always C-type CPU coolers like the Noctua NH-L12. But there are alternatives, right? Like the Noctua NH-U9S? Well, I guess we'll find out here.
Cooler Master has been hard at work at creating the latest and greatest PC case for the longest of time. Take a look at the classic ATCS 840, Cosmos II, and also the CM 690 series - they're fantastic. In the recent years, Cooler Master redefined itself with the Master-something mantra. Now, they've returned with a brand new announcement - the MasterBox Lite 5.
