AMD Ryzen 7 2700X & Ryzen 5 2600X overclocked to 5880 MHz
A new world record for Ryzen 7 processor frequency has been achieved. Ryzen 7 2700X overclocked to 5884 MHz No, this is not the world record for all Ryzen processors. The highest clock achieved and verified by HWBot is 5905 MHz on Ryzen 5 1600X. The highest frequency for Ryzen 7 1800X is 5803 MHz. Both records were broken by der8auer. That said, Ryzen 7 2700X's 5884 MHz clock is just 21 MHz short to beat the world record for all Ryzen processors. For now, it's a world record only for Ryzen 7 family.

Deep Cool Gammax GT RGB CPU Cooler Review
Deep Cool may not be a brand best known in Europe, but there is no reason why they shouldn’t be. Although primarily known in the Chinese market, Deep Cool generally tend to produce really quality products. Better still, this is often highly affordable. Put simply, they are known for great performance at reasonable prices.
When it comes to entry-mid level air coolers, you can be a little spoilt for choice. There are, after all, so many. Making an informed decision as to what will be best for you in regards to aesthetics, acoustics and performance can be a tricky business.

One such offering that might tick the boxes in all three categories, however, is the Deep Cool Gammax GT air cooler. As such, we are delighted to have an in-depth look at the Deep Cool Gammax GT air cooler. As one of Deep Cools latest offerings. Could this be the next cooler for your PC build?

Earthfall Preview: Left 4 Dead meets an alien invasion on Xbox and PC
Earthfall is a gorgeous co-op squad shooter that feels like Left 4 Dead in all the right ways.

Valve's Left 4 Dead franchise is often brought up when discussing the pinnacle of squad-based horde shooters, and for good reason. Their quality, polish, and mechanics have led to the series having a sizable player base even a decade post-release. Though games like Zombie Army Trilogy and Killing Floor 2 have made attempts, and while Vermintide 2 has done admirably, nothing else on the market has quite managed to capture the imagination like Left 4 Dead.

Earthfall, a new co-op horde mode shooter currently in Early Access on PC, has now stepped up to the plate. And with its dynamic spawning system, excellent enemy variety, finely-tuned difficulty, and creepy alien aesthetic, it just might be the first game to live up to and even surpass Left 4 Dead's legacy.

Lenovo ThinkPad X280 Review
As much as I love Lenovo's ThinkPad lineup, the X280 took me out of my comfort zone a little bit with its 12.5-inch display and compact form factor. It's incredibly light though at around two and a half pounds, so the portability kind of makes up for it.

This generation, announced ahead of CES in December, includes Intel's eighth-generation U-series processors, which are quad-core, so they offer a significant boost in performance over last year's model. It also ditches the old proprietary charger, replacing it with USB Type-C, which can also be used for mechanical docking. Another feature that Lenovo boasted this year is the ThinkShutter privacy guard. No longer do users have to put a piece of tape over the webcam. You can just flip a switch.

Logitech G560 RGB PC Gaming Speakers Review
It seems no matter which way you turn, RGB LEDs will illuminate your path. Today we look at Logitech’s latest in their G branded peripherals, the Logitech G560 2.1 Gaming Speakers, with, you guessed it, RGB lighting.

The G560 features 240W of peak power, split between a pair of tweeters, fitted with two zones of RGB lighting, as well as a sizeable, separate subwoofer. The eye-catching design is remarkably modern so should fit in well on most desktop setups.

Toshiba Canvio Basics 2TB Portable USB 3.0 HDD Review
Toshiba has launched a new version of their Canvio drives, and today I’m taking a closer look at the Canvio Basics (product link) with a 2TB capacity. Other capacity options available include 500GB, 750GB, 1TB, 2.5TB and 3TB. The compact HDD is pocket-sized and as such perfect for the person on the go who also requires a lot of storage capacity.

It is easy to forget all about mechanical hard disk drives when you’ve had SSDs in your system for a long time. After all, they aren’t new. But the traditional hard disk has a lot of merits, and it’s still a valid choice for many situations. Not only are hard disk drives cheaper than their solid state brothers, but they also come with higher capacity options.
