Hey hey what's up guys, I am Ryan. It's safe to say that 360mm AIOs have been really popular and practically offer a lot of the same cooling characteristics that a custom water cooling loop could offer. But I beg to ask, what's the next step? Well being an avid water cooler myself, going custom water cooling is a bit of a different animal entirely. A CPU block, fittings, tubing, coolant, pump, reservoir, fans and any other odds and ends that usually pop up while constructing a custom water loop. So what does one do to mitigate that? Well that next step for watercooling noobs is to look at a box kit that includes everything needed to setup a CPU only water cooling loop, which is where Corsair's XH305i RGB Pro steps in.
Join us in taking a look at Cooler Masters flagship case, the HAF 700 Evo. It is a monster of a case both in size, features as well as build potential. Read on to see what we make of this beast.
By now you have all heard of the recent launch of Nvidia's RTX 3090 Ti or is it Tie? Whatever. Zotac was kind enough to send over their flagship model, the RTX 3090 Ti AMP Extreme Holo, so many thanks to them. This time around Nvidia has enabled all 84 SMs on the Ampere GA102 process, which translates to 10,752 CUDA cores, 336 Tensor cores, 336 TMUs, and 112 ROPs. The now little brother, the RTX 3090, has 82 of those SMs enabled, translating to 10,496 CUDA cores, however both models have the same amount of VRAM, 24GB of GDDR6X, BUT the RTX 3090 Ti ups the boost clock to 1.86GHz and memory clocks to 21Gbps over the 1.7GHz boost and 19.5 Gbps found on the RTX 3090. So just by looking at the numbers, the RTX 3090 Ti should only be around 2.4% faster on the core and 7.7% faster on the memory clocks than the RTX 3090, however the RTX 3090 Ti has a whopping 450w power consumption rating! So why was this card made? Well I think it's a case of, because Nvidia can and will continue to innovate. Looking at the raw specs alone, it doesn't really look like much of improvement, but to some the upgrade to an RTX 3090 Ti might be worth it. Read on to find out more.
Hey what's up guys, hope you all are doing well. I'm Ryan with ExtremeHW. So does anyone remember the Corsair Graphite 600T? What about the 780T? Well if you have been in the game as long as I have, you will remember these two iconic PC cases. Launched in 2011 and 2013 respectively, the Corsair 600T and 780T were two of the PC cases that were very widely used. I however never got the chance to use either but I feel a bit more redeemed today because our friends over at Corsair sent over their new iCUE 5000T RGB for review. Stay with me.
So this is going be an experience for me, this is the first time I am PUTTING TOGETHER a PC case. Yep I said that right, InWin sent over their new Airforce PC case, which is flat packed. Touting a “Build your own Chassis”, the Airforce takes aim for a different DIY experience.
Hey what is up guys, Ryan with ExtremeHW here. Today we are going to build a new Intel Alder Lake 12th gen mid range gaming PC. I just wanted to say thank you to our kind friends over at be quiet!, Gigabyte, Intel, Kingston, and SK Hynix, for providing the parts needed for this build. So let’s get into this.
Hey what's up people, I am Ryan with ExtremeHW. Today we have another product from our friends over at Corsair, the H150i ELITE LCD AIO. So just as the name suggests, this AIO is a bit different than other AIOs that Corsair had previously released. Now, an LCD screen sits on top of the pump/block top showing all sorts of user desired information, pics, or even GIFs. So let's dive in and see what the Corsair H150i ELITE LCD has going for it.
Hey what's up people! Today is a dark day, but in a good way. EVGA has sent over their Z590 DARK for us to take a look at, and before you keyboard warriors type in the comments, I know Intel Alder Lake CPUs and Z690 motherboards are out. However there still is a market for Z590 motherboards. EVGA's DARK series of motherboards has had a long history of being a niche series of motherboards focused on extreme overclocking
What's up guys, today we are gonna look at a M.2 SSD from our friends over at Corsair. So thank you to them for sending this over for me to take a look at. So here we have the Corsair MP600 Pro XT 2Tb M.2 NVME SSD. This guy is PCIe Gen 4. with 7.1 GB/s in sequential reads and sequential writes up to 6.8GB/s, this M.2 SSD is stupid fast. Let's see what we find.
Hey what’s up guys, I am Ryan with ExtremeHW. I got a joke for you, what's huge, has 4 140mm RGB fans and has tempered glass all over? The Corsair iCUE 7000X RGB. Let’s jump right in and see what it’s all about.
