Ashen Review
From Software changed the world of gaming forever with the release of Demons Souls first and then, later, Dark Souls. Many developers in the past have released their unique tale on the formula, ranging from 2D experiences like Salt and Sanctuary and Deaths Gambit to full-blown massive game like Team Ninjas Nioh.

Asus Prime X299-Deluxe II motherboard Review
Intel's refreshed CPUs for the X299 platform gave motherboard makers a chance at a do-over in the wake of a narrowing of focus for those chips. Like I alluded to in my review of the Gigabyte X299 Designare EX, not every X299 board that's passed through the TR labs has been a winner, especially when you toss 18 overclocked Skylake Server cores in the LGA 2066 socket.

The ASUS RT-AC86U was designed around gaming to provide the users with the fastest experience possible with reduced lag.

Corsair Platinum Series SFX Power Supply Review
Corsair recently introduced two new SFX small form-factor power supplies into their already formidable lineup of PC power supplies. The SF Platinum Series includes two SFX models, the SF450 (450W) and SF600 (600W). They are very similar to the two current Gold Series SFX units currently on the market but thanks to some tweaks in the circuit design and manufacturing process the Platinum Series SF450 and SF600 now deliver Platinum level efficiency.

Both new power supplies feature fully modular cables with individually sleeved wires. The SF450 and SF600 feature a Zero RPM Fan Mode for silent operation at low to medium power and come backed by a 7-year warranty. And an SFX-to-ATX mounting bracket is included in the box. We will be taking a detailed look at the Corsair SF600 Platinum power supply in this review.

Crucial P1 500GB and 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD Review
Once we saw Intel launch QLC flash installed in their recent 660p M.2 part, I had a feeling that Micron would not be far behind, and that feeling has been confirmed with the launch of the Crucial P1 M.2 SSDs:

Both the 500GB and 1TB models are single sided. The 2TB (not yet released) will likely have packages installed at the rear.

GRIS Review
GRIS follows a young girl who is in a world of her own, following a painful experience in her real life. It is through exploring this world that she comes to address her emotions, which opens up new paths along with her dress manifesting abilities to aid her progression. Being a narrative experience, there is little cause for frustration as there is no risk of death or danger, unless you cannot figure out the solution to a puzzle. There are also some secrets you can find by exploring a bit off of the path and doing some careful platforming.

The Ninja 5 is the latest in the line of high performance, low-noise tower air coolers from Scythe, building on the venerable Ninja 4 design (reviewed here back in 2016) with a new dual-fan configuration. The Ninja 5 (SCNJ-5000) ships with a pair of Kaze Flex 120 mm fans, which should provide very low noise output with their 800 RPM max speed. Does the combination of big heatsink and dual low-speed fans translate into high performance? Lets find out!
