Ah, SSDs. I think everyone knows what it is now, and experienced the benefits of having them in your system. Seriously SSDs are already a fantastic upgrade - but since when is that enough? Introducing the new Plextor M8Se NVMe series of SSDs.
It's been quite some time since I last heard about a new keyboard by Logitech. With the recent announcement of the Logitech G413, not only does it places itself as Logitech's flagship keyboard, but I think it's the most premium keyboard out there.
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.
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.
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!
In today's standards for high-speed storage devices, SSDs that uses the NVMe interface take the crown. As of now, SSDs available in the market is still far away from hitting the NVMe interface limit. That's why NVMe SSDs are getting faster than ever while maintaining at a reasonable price. The Plextor M9PeG is one of those SSDs that has great performance with a reasonable price.
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.
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.
