Sound Blaster, a name that PC users and enthusiasts have grown up with for years. Creative, the creator of the Sound Blaster series of sound cards have been with us since 1981 and a worldwide leader in audio technologies.…
Intel has released its 11th gen CPUs based on the Cypress Cove architecture and continues to push 14nm to its limits. These new CPUs have a ton of negative press surrounding them but especially the 11900K. There are some serious holes with the new product stack but also a lot of good that the processor brings when considering generational leaps and what 14nm++ is capable of. We are going to do something a bit different here with this overclocking guide by comparing Intel's recommended test settings versus a manual all-core overclock. Intel's recommended settings are going to offer a bit more performance than just basic default settings. Let's see what we can get out of this CPU.
Back in the middle of 2019, Team Group released an NVMe drive with a revolutionary new cooling solution. Named the T-Force Cardea Liquid, this new drive was the first ever NVMe to be released with a water cooling solution, well, sort of. Fast forward almost two years and we're testing this drive because it's still on the market and it's still quite interesting, but maybe not what you are expecting. Keep reading to find out all about this water cooling solution Team Group developed.
Today we're reviewing a high-performance memory kit from Kingston Technology. The HyperX Predator DDR4 modules are part of Kingston's HyperX - Gaming series of products, which are unique products that have been created specifically with gamers and computer power users in mind. We've got our hands on the 4600 MHz CL16-26-26 kit and plan on giving it a thorough review from an overclocking perspective. So join us as we give you the grand tour of this memory and show you what makes it worth considering for your next purchase.
Back in January of this year, Corsair released the MP600 CORE NVMe SSD. This drive features QLC NAND flash memory and features the Phison E16 controller. Typically we've seen QLC memory offered on large capacity budget-oriented drives because of its high-density capabilities. With the E16 controller, the CORE is capable of strong performance numbers, but it's not quite as fast as a typical E16 NVMe. Follow along as we take a look at this unique drive and give you a rundown of its performance.
Logitech has been creating peripherals for some time. They aggressively make their presence known with their advancements in the peripheral market. With the Logitech G line of products, it continues to innovate with wired and wireless technology because its goal is to create a super responsive environment for any gamer. They offer the lowest input lag for their Logitech G line of products and swear that you can't tell the difference between wired and wireless. Their new Lightspeed technology further improves latency and is targeted for eSports and gamers. I've looked at several Logitech products in the past and today we will be looking over the PRO X headset. This headset was designed in collaboration with professional eSports players and offers advanced communication technology. Let's dive into what makes this headset hear and sound like a pro.
Over the years we've observed great advancements in the form and function of USB-based removable storage devices. While we have seen the physical designs dressed up to look more attractive and user-friendly, the file transfer speed has always been one very big downside. Sabrent released the Rocket Pro removable storage device to solve that age-old speed problem and put a 1000MB/s transfer speed in the palm of your hand. Read on to find out how we got on with the Sabrent SB-2TB-PRO.
Crucial developed the Ballistix MAX series of DDR4 memory for gamers and performance enthusiasts looking to push beyond standard limits. Composed of the highest-quality memory ICs, the Ballistix MAX was born with overclocking and high-performance computing in mind. With overclocking at the core, the Ballistix MAX series has been optimized to work with both AMD and Intel platforms. Read on further to see what we find.
InWin is a brand synonymous with contemporary and innovative products. Since 1985, InWin has been serving its customers high quality products, including consumer computer chassis, cooling, power supply, and those in the server markets. InWin was kind enough to send over its SR24 Pro 240mm RGB AIO for us to take a look at. Follow along as we go over the features and test results of this AIO Cooler.
So the year is 2021, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 has already landed, showing us that 32GB of RAM could now be the new "sweet spot" for gamers moving forward, not to mention for those who use their machines for work and play. So it begs the question, is 64GB really all that overkill now that gamers are transitioning to 32GB? Remember, it is not so different from when 16GB was the sweet spot and people considered 32GB to be overkill, well look where we are now. However running 64GB has been known to come at a price. Not just what comes out of your wallet, but we are also talking performance. As 64GB Kits come in a kit of 4x DIMM Modules arrangement (sometimes more), it has been well documented that running a 64GB kit a its maximum rated XMP ratings and beyond that can be much more difficult due to additional stress on the CPU's memory controller. We figured it was time to delve into this topic to see if you can run 64GB and maintain performance. We reached out to TeamGroup who were kind enough to send us a 64GB Kit of XTREEM ARGB 4000 CL18 just for this purpose. Read on to see what we find.
