ADATA XPG SX7000 M.2 PCIE Gen3x4 256GB SSD Review
Adata has done a marvellous job with the XPG SX7000 SSD. It offers excellent read and write speeds and comes with an impressive 5 year warranty.

Although it didn’t reach the advertise speed of 1800MB (read)/850MB (write) … it did come pretty close. The disclaimer did say that the performance may vary, based on SSD capacity, host hardware and software, operating system, and other system variables. On average we got real-life read speeds of around 1370MB/sec with a write speed of around 825MB/sec.

AMD Threadripper 1920X and 1950X CPU Details: 12/16 Cores, 4 GHz Turbo, $799 and $999
Last night out of the blue, we received an email from AMD, sharing some of the specifications for the forthcoming Ryzen Threadripper CPUs to be announced today. Up until this point, we knew a few things – Threadripper would consist of two Zeppelin dies featuring AMD’s latest Zen core and microarchitecture, and would essentially double up on the HEDT Ryzen launch. Double dies means double pretty much everything: Threadripper would support up to 16 cores, up to 32 MB of L3 cache, quad-channel memory support, and would require a new socket/motherboard platform called X399, sporting a massive socket with 4094-pins (and also marking an LGA socket for AMD). By virtue of being sixteen cores, AMD is seemingly carving a new consumer category above HEDT/High-End Desktop, which we’ve coined the ‘Super High-End Desktop’, or SHED for short.

ASUS Cerberus V2 Headset Review
Over the last few years, ASUS and its Republic of Gamers sub-brand has been focusing more and more on gaming peripherals. Today we analyse the Cerberus V2 gaming headset, a fairly basic device that lacks extra mod-cons such as RGB lighting while connecting via a standard 3.5mm jack. That being said, many gamers are looking to get away from all the unnecessary features that many peripherals now come with, so is ASUS onto a winner here?

Ballistix Elite 3466 MHz DDR4
Ballistix Elite DDR4 sticks have been granted a speed bump all the way up to 3466 MHz. We take the 8 GB DIMMs for a spin on Intel's Z270 platform because these sticks are still too Elite for AMD systems.

Cooler Master MasterBox Lite 5 Review
The MasterBox Lite 5 is the latest mid-tower case from Cooler Master, which offers plenty of interior space to build gaming systems. Furthermore there is also enough space for small all-in-one water coolers on the front and at the rear. Apart from that, the MasterBox Lite 5 features an elegant shape and for 50 Euro is very aggressively priced.

Huawei P10 Review
This year Huawei launched a new top-end smartphone, the Huawei P10, along with a larger brother in the P10 Plus. The phone debuted in a time where competitors like Samsung and LG had just launched flagships with larger, bezel-free displays. But rather than innovating in a similar fashion, Huawei opted for a more iterative approach that took the good parts of the P9 and attempted to improve them for 2017.

MSI X370 XPower Gaming Titanium Review
Overall, I was very pleased with the performance I was able to get out of the X370 XPower Gaming Titanium. The board is easy to use and provides an excellent user experience. Stock performance is going to fall in a set envelope for the most part and that plays out when you look at the stock results. The overclocked results were fairly similar as well with my specific Ryzen 7 1800X. It is, at best, a 4.1GHz processor with more voltage than the cooling could handle. However, at the edge it still performed admirably in the X370 XPower Gaming Titanium. Running at stock speeds won't do for the most part and MSI makes it easy to get the most out of the processor by having an easy to navigate and use BIOS implementation in the Click BIOS 5. The OC section is well laid out and easy to understand. Saving your settings profiles in the BIOS is easy, but just make sure you take some screenshots if you are updating the BIOS. Using the Game Boost button allows the user to use the preset clock speed options that go from rather mundane to speeds well above what the Ryzen chips I have are capable of. No harm there as you have a way to get to your overclock with little hassle.

Noctua New A Series Fans and Accessories
We have no doubt about the top quality of Noctua products. Each one of them is well designed. Even the package is exceptional. Most manufacturers are missing these little things that count while Noctua provides package with everything you may need for installation.

Long years of designing and engeneering gave great results. Where you could think there can’t be done much more, Noctua proved that even the best products can be improved. New A series fans are the best in their class and it’s hard to find anything similar on the market. Even though new fans are considered as “slim”, they provide top air pressure while keeping low level of generated noise. Perfect balance for all who expect the best from their fans.

NuForce BE6i Review
The two 10mm dynamic speakers offer a powerful bass that does not cover the rest of the frequencies. The earphones offer a balanced sound, with the mid-range and low frequencies being played with in depth details, while the bass itself is strong enough.
The headphones have been tested with different styles of music and audio formats, ranging from the already classic mp3 to Flac. The signal range is good, it covers a distance of 25m. The sound isolation is acceptable, being enough to highlight the music.
The battery autonomy is approximately 8 hours of continue use while the charging takes around one hour.
In conclusion, the NuForce BE6i offers good sound quality and an 8-hour autonomy with an operating distance of up to 25m. Also, the IPX5 certification that ensures protection from dust and water is especially welcome for outdoor activities.

NVIDIA vs. Radeon Vulkan & OpenGL Performance With A Celeron, Pentium & Core i7
Here is an interesting OpenGL vs. Vulkan Linux benchmark comparison where I take two competing NVIDIA and AMD cards, the Radeon RX 580 and GeForce GTX 1060, and test the available benchmark-friendly OpenGL/Vulkan Linux games while doing these tests each on an Intel Celeron, Pentium, and Core i7 processors in looking at the performance scaling.

Patriot Viper V370 7.1 Gaming Headset Review
This gaming headset retails for around USD $70. It’s good to have such headset with so many options to fiddle with, along with great aesthetics, function and sound quality especially with such heavy Bass, the headset became quite versatile and justified. Fabric ear cups give me a good impression on the designer consideration on user’s experience which I would give a thumb up.

ROCCAT Leadr Wireless Multi-Button RGB Gaming Mouse Review
While the multitude of button placement may discourage some mainstream users but also entry-level gamers and would state they will never use these or are somewhat hard accessible, this is not the case! ROCCAT made sure that the button placement is optimal and we have had absolutely no problems accessing the ones placed on the left panel with games such as Kritika Online or Black Deset Online. The sets of buttons on the left and right side of the usual left/right click buttons need some time to get used to, while the Easy-Shift[+] function button can be accessed very conveniently.
