Today I bring a new product from Cooler Master, based off their already extensive AIO range of products, the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240 Mirror on the surface looks to compliment any RGB enthusiast's build but how is it at cooling? Let's see what it's all about! The product includes their latest 3rd generation dual chamber pump to ensure good coolant flow consistently through the AIO. Cooler Master chose to go with a black colored product, which will fit stealthily in any build apart from the LEDs which will be visually pleasing for the RGB crowd. As with most AIOs the radiator material is made of aluminium while the block/pump cold plate is made from copper. The pump included in this product is made to last at least 70000 hours, which equates to about 8 years being on constantly 24/7, so needless to say that the pump will easily outlast the warranty period for this product. One bonus is that on top of that, the pump is very, very silent, you'll have a hard time hearing it if you'd have no other fan in your build, so check which fan header you'll be plugging it's 3-pin connector and turn it up to 100% in BIOS to maximize this AIOs capability! Even at 100%, it should only draw about 0.2A (less than 2.5W!)
Hello fellow PC enthusiasts, today I bring you an overview of the Cooler Master V650 V2 in white. Cooler Master have been providing power supplies for the PC market for quite sometime, covering the low,medium & high end PC market and are always improving upon their PSU lineup. Today is no exception as we cover the second generation of their V650 power supply line. The Cooler Master V650 V2 is a revision of their V series released toward the end of 2015. Let's see what we find.
Today we will be taking a look at the TeamGroup Cardea Zero Z340. This is but one drive from TeamGroups PCIe Gen 3 NVMe product line. Coming in at 512Gb in size with rated speeds of up to 3,400 MB/s Read / 2,000 MB/s Write, this could make for a great boot drive for builders on a budget. Read on to see how the TeamGroup Cardea Zero Z340 performs.
This product is your standard PCIE 3.0 x4 NVME. It features QLC (quad level cell) NAND which enables it to have product variants up to 8TB due to its denser configuration! This type of NAND is of the 3D variant, which enables higher read and write endurance's, simply put they'll last longer. Compared to TLC NAND though, it is a bit slower in write speeds, still the drive promises up to 3000 MB/s in sequential write and 3400 MB/s in read, remember that max theoretical bandwidth for PCIE 3.0 x4 is 3940 MB/s, adding in all communications, transfers and etc., most we usually see on PCIE x4 is 3500 MB/s (that's like transferring COD Warzone from two same speed NVME's in about 15 seconds!!). On top of all this since the drive is in the typical 2280 format (22mm wide by 80mm long) and doesn't have a heatsink it'll fit in anything that has a slot the appropriate size. Now the cherry on the cake? Corsair offers a 5 year (!) warranty on this product line. Let's check it out this small, fast and capable NVME SSD!
Hey guys, today I bring you a very special case. It's very niche, it's overkill in so many ways, but oh so beautiful! Here's my review of the InWin X-Frame 2.0 (in green/black), a $1200 USD MSRP case, which by itself it more than your average mid-performance gaming tower, let's see what makes it so expensive and how this case might just be the case for you!
As some of you might not know, I have a weakness when it comes to cases. I've owned cases from pretty much every single manufacturer, from small cases like the InWin Chopin up to the biggest case ever made, the CaseLabs TX10. (I had the -V) InWin is one of those manufacturers that go above and beyond to constantly create something different from the rest, constantly innovating and pioneering cases in one way or another. The InWin 309 is one of those examples.
