AMD Ryzen 5 3600X & Ryzen 5 3400G Performance In Linux
Following-up on our coverage of AMD's 8 and 12-core launch Ryzen 3000-series chips, we're now turning our attention to a couple of options that will not break the bank: the six-core Ryzen 5 3600X CPU and Ryzen 5 3400G APU. We're also throwing in some comparative Ubuntu 18.04 vs. 19.04 performance to highlight the differences a distro release can make.

Antec Dark Avenger DA601 Mid-Tower Chassis Review
Antec is probably one of the few companies in the PC game that do not need an introduction. Anyone who has been around the PC world in the past decade has either used or knows someone who had an Antec nine hundred or twelve hundred. Antec much like Lian Li, which we discussed recently made some fantastic chassis. Then they lost their way along the years moving to several different product offerings such as mobile accessories. Antec over the past couple years has stepped up their PC chassis game again and revived that feeling about the brand that so many of us had a decade or more ago. Today we have one of the new models from Antec, and it is definitely a gamer-focused chassis. The Dark Avenger DA601 is what we have today, and it has the trifecta of tempered glass, aggressive styling, and RGB. The DA601 is definitely an exciting entrant into the chassis market, and it has some of the makings of a solid competitor in the current market.

ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2070 SUPER O8G GAMING Review
We’ve got our first review of a full retail custom video card based on the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GPU today. We have been looking forward to testing a custom retail video card so that we can see how much more overclocking ability we can push the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GPU too. First a little refresher, NVIDIA announced the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER on July 2nd with availability on July 9th. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER debuted at $499 and fully replaces the GeForce RTX 2070 and GeForce RTX 2070 Founders Edition video cards.

Battlewake Review
As attempts to surround my ship to bring it down go, this one was fairly well executed. I had the advantage over the two leeward vessels as each struggled to get a clear shot at me. But that left the three larger ships plenty of space to approach and unload their many, many cannons into my stern. A few well-placed volleys set the first ship ablaze, but the second was now approaching as fast as it could. Ramming this ship isn't quite that easy, I thought as I dredged my anchor and narrowly dodged my opponent. And thankfully, as it passed, there was time to unload my cannons two full times to finish the job I'd started earlier.

Blasphemous Review
It's very rare that every facet of a game is pure misery, but Blasphemous is this game. However, misery loves company and this is company worth keeping.

Cooler Master MM710 Review
A mouse is a mouse, right? Well there have been a few mice that have come out that have had me excited, but lets be honest for the most part it has felt like everyone is just updating to the latest “in” sensor, adding RGB lighting where they can, and taking on things that can be mentioned on the box or in an online listing as a big feature. A little balance in adding just a few cool features and things are okay. But some mice get a little crazy and they end up huge and extremely heavy. Now if you were following the trends in mice you might run into people on Reddit drilling holes in their mice and doing everything they can to make their mouse lighter. Well, a few companies have been leading the lightweight market including Logitech on the wireless side, but it is finally hitting the mainstream companies including Razer which just recently brought out something. Well the mouse a lot of people have been waiting for is from Cooler Master with their MM710. They have been following the enthusiast market on the keyboard side for years so it isn’t a huge shocker that they would also do the same with their mice. The MM710 packs all of the features people are modding into their mice including the holes. Today I’m going to check out their new mouse and find out what all the excitement is about.

Crucial Ballistix Elite 4000MHz Review
Last month we saw the launch of AMD's 3rd Gen. processors, with a new and improved memory controller allowing manufacturers of DRAM to stretch their legs and develop high speed kits for the masses. Crucial were quick off the mark as today we look at the Crucial Ballistix Elite in the brand new 4000MHz flavour. Their 3600MHz kits of the very same have won plenty of awards as well as the current DDR4 frequency world record at 5758MHz from an off-the-shelf 3600MHz Ballistix Elite kit. Overclocking credentials get a massive tick then.

Deepcool Gamer Storm Castle 240EX Review
One of the biggest additions is their anti-leak system. Deepcool have been developing this anti-leak technology for three years now and are pushing it hard on their latest AIO cooling loops, hopefully taking away one of the biggest risk factors of putting, what is essentially, a quantity of conductive liquid into your system. The anti-leak mechanism works by incorporating a rubber 'bung' into the radiator where the elastic properties of the rubber can accommodate for pressure, and therefore volume, changes within the loop.

GreedFall Benchmark Test & Performance Analysis
GreedFall is a first person roleplaying game that reminds of Dragon Age, Mass Effect and Skyrim, with some Assassin's Creed sprinkled on top. What makes this game stand out is its well-crafted story and non-linear gameplay. We take GreedFall for a spin with 23 graphics cards in 1080p, 1440p and 4K Ultra HD.

HyperX Fury RGB 16GB DDR4-3200 (HX432C16FB3AK2/16) Review
Hitting most of the right notes. It may surprise you to learn that HyperX, the enthusiast arm of Kingston Technology, has been around for 17 years. In that time, it has built up an arsenal of products spanning headsets, mice, storage, audio, keyboards and memory. HyperX covers much of the same ground as Corsair. That similarity extends to enthusiast memory, with HyperX using Fury and Predator sub-brands for desktop DDR4. Both ranges are available with and without RGB lighting.

Predator DDR4 scales to 4,600MHz for non-RGB and 4,000MHz for RGB, matching the top-line kits available from the competition. Fury RGB, meanwhile, adopts a more value-driven approach by using standard-profile modules with a 2,400MHz to 3,466MHz frequency range, and it's a 16GB (2x8GB) pack of DDR4-3,200 Fury RGB we're taking a look at today.

KFA2 GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER EX GAMER BLACK 8 GB Graphics Card Review
Last year, NVIDIA introduced their latest Turing based GeForce RTX 20 series graphics cards, which made a complete departure from traditional GPU design and created a hybrid GPU architecture that would include a range of new technologies to power the next-generation immersive gaming experiences

The GeForce RTX 20 series was the enablement of real-time raytracing which is the holy grail of graphics and something NVIDIA took 10 years to perfect. In addition to raytracing, NVIDIA also aimed to place bets on AI which would go on to play a key role in powering features such as DLSS or Deep Learning Super Sampling.

The VIGOR GK30 features 6 lighting areas which can be customised with up to 10 lighting effects while the CLUTCH GM11 has 8 lighting effects, all the RGB settings can be controlled without software but as always to get the precise settings it's recommended to download the MSI Dragon Center software, doing so also allows you to change macro settings and customise hotkeys on both the mouse and keyboard.

Oculus Quest Standalone Virtual Reality Review
Oculus has released the Quest, a virtual reality headset that does not require a computer or sensors. We've had so much fun with our Oculus Rift (watching friends get queasy), we had to have the Quest. So, how does the Quest stack up without the need for a computer or sensors?

The Quest is available from most electronics retailers. We purchased ours at a brick and mortar Best Buy because we didn't want to wait. The Quest now follows the Apple model of purchasing either a 64GB ($399) or 128GB ($499), and we're not too thrilled with this model. We opted for the 128GB model because we play a lot of games and we're concerned about running out of space. That said, it's a shame that the memory isn't upgradeable later for those who opted to buy the 64GB version.

Patriot Viper 4 Blackout Edition 3600MHz Review
The Patriot Viper 4 Blackout Edition is under the spotlight today, with a 3600MHz frequency out of the box with XMP 2.0 timings of 17-19-19-39. The 3600MHz kit may find itself being favoured by many Ryzen 3rd Gen. users with AMD recommending higher speed DRAM kits to complement their Infinity Fabric.

Thermaltake UX200 Air CPU Cooler Review
If you’re looking for an inexpensive cooling solution for your system, then we’re not going to deny that it’s a very crowded market you’re in. For less than £35, there are a lot of manufacturers vying for your business and being as diplomatic as possible, a significant portion of some of these products would be better suited in a bin rather than attached to a CPU.

Thermaltake, however, has always looked and prided themselves on providing quality products to suit any need, requirement or budget. Put simply, if you see their name on the box, you know straight away you’re getting something decent!

XFX RX 5700 XT THICC II Ultra Review
XFX has designed the THICC II from the ground up, it seems, as I can't find anything related to a previous cooler bearing this name. This is also the company that brought us the Double Edition and FatBoy video cards, which were well received. Now XFX brings us the THICC model for AMD's newly launched Navi GPU. It definitely has a bit of flare and gives off a Bauhaus movement vibe with every angle carefully thought of in design. The name Bauhaus is often referred to as a state of minimalism in the art world, but it is so much more than that and can be a lengthy subject if you are into architecture.

XFX RX 5700 XT THICC II Ultra Review
Being announced this week is the XFX RX 5700 XT THICC II and THICC II Ultra. Both cards utilise the same cooler but the Ultra version benefits from optimisation under the hood - the GPU boost clock is able to achieve slightly higher frequencies at 1980 MHz and as a result of this will also consume slightly more power (20W).
