Antec Mercury 360 AIO Liquid CPU Cooler Review

Antec may have chosen to put silence above raw cooling efficiency but thanks to its affordable price, 50.000 hours lifetime, LED lights and still very good performance across the board the latest Mercury 360 AIO Liquid CPU Cooler is a solid product worthy of your attention.

AOC Agon AG241QG & AG241QX review: remarkable gaming monitors

For some games a compact monitor is desirable, for others you want a high resolution instead. All in a single glance and yet a lot of detail, that is what the G-sync AOC Agon AG241QG and FreeSync AG241QX promise. We tested both.

While we regularly emphasize that a bigger monitor can offer a more immersive gaming experience, we cannot deny that many gamers prefer a monitor that is not too big for their favorite genre. In order to respond quickly in a fast-paced shooter, you do not want to have to move your head from one side to the other, but instead you want to be able to spot every changing pixel with a single glance. Because of this a 24-inch diagonal is usually the maximum for this target audience. Those gamers also prefer a high refresh rate, once again because they do not want to miss anything.

Asus ROG Strix GL753VD Review

Most PC enthusiasts will be familiar with the Asus ROG name. ROG stands for Republic of Gamers, Asus’ premium brand aimed at the gaming crowd. And indeed, at first glance Asus’ ROG Strix GL753VD laptop has all the elements to do this renowned brand proud: a snazzy black-and-red design, RGB-backlit keyboard, Full HD IPS display, SSD for performance plus HDD for storage, and even the latest connectivity with USB 3.1 Type C. So far so good.

However, as any serious tech buff will be able to tell you, the single most important element in a gaming machine is its graphics card. And of course this goes double for laptops where – barring rather rare modular solutions such as Nvidia’s MXM socket or non-portable external additions like the Razer Core (https://www.kitguru.net/components/graphic-cards/matthew-wilson/the-razer-core-external-gpu-enclosure-has-a-price/) – the GPU is not upgradeable.

Unfortunately, though the ROG Strix GL753VD has the tagline “gaming without limits”, its relatively low-end Nvidia GTX 1050 graphics chip makes it likely that those limits will crop up rather sooner than the average gamer might like, especially in demanding titles. So can the rest of the package and its overall price still convince?

Cherry MX Board 3.0 Keyboard Review

In keyboard land there are few if any company names more recognizable than Cherry. We know them mostly for the amazing switches they produce and sell to anyone looking to make a top end deck. They of course also make full keyboards themselves and the ones we’ve reviewed here at ThinkComputers have been quite nice. Today we’re checking out one more, a business model, the MX Board 3.0. This flat top full Qwerty board isn’t likely to grab your attention if you’re a gamer. Fortunately, the 3.0 equipped with MX Brown switches, is intended for someone with a set of demands other than flashing RGB LEDs. Read along as we find out if the MX Board 3.0 should be your next business partner.

Cooler Master Masterkeys Pro S RGB Mechanical Keyboard Review

Masterkeys Pro S RGB is an interesting TKL keyboard from Cooler Master that was thought with on-the-fly capabilities from the start (for both LED and Macro setups). Quality is ensured by using original CHERRY MX switches (Brown, Blue or Red), comes with a preset Polling Rate of 1000Hz, while the included 512KB of storage helps creating up to four separate profiles. Masterkeys Pro S also comes with the possibility to set up the RGB lighting system via software, so we do have a downloadable utility from the website; the said utility will also update the firmware on the peripheral, with just a mouse click.

Crucial BX300 3D MLC SSD Review: Affordable, Durable, Solid State Storage

Crucial recently launched a new series of solid state drives that somewhat defy convention. While a number of other recent releases feature various flavors of TLC NAND, the Crucial BX300 series we’ll be showing you here actually features 3D MLC NAND flash memory. In the current SSD landscape, MLC NAND isn’t typically used for consumer-class SSDs any longer, especially in lower-priced offerings, but Crucial is bucking the trend this time around...

Enermax Revolution Xt II 750W PSU Review

We continue with a new power supply review. This time Enermax is launching a small power plant that not only excels with its high power output of 750 watts, but also has a few more finesses. How well the Revolution X't II power supply performs in the test, and whether a metal bracket can really change our IT life, everything and much more can be found on OCinside.de!

EVGA X299 Micro

So the X299 has been an interesting one. Intel introduced high-end CPUs at the last minute, there was a lot of drama at the launch about VROC, cooling issues post-launch, along with strong competition from AMD with the Threadripper launch. A lot of the board manufacturers have been revising and making changes but EVGA has been waiting to get things right before putting their X299 lineup into the wild. While as of writing this I don’t see any for sale in regular retail stores, EVGA did finally send over a board. Today I’m going to check out the X299 Micro, their Micro ATX board. Given the performance X299 is capable of, I’m excited to see if this board could be a good mATX build option to pack a lot of performance in a smaller package. EVGA typically keeps things simple with a blacked out look and little to no lighting for those who just want a clean good performing board. Let’s find out if that is the case again.

Sennheiser GSP 350 Headset Review

Sennheiser is a brand that has a very good reputation in the high-end audiophile market, but it has found it hard to transfer that success into the gaming market. Today, we look at the GSP 350 – a £120 gaming headset that Sennheiser will hope can finally establish the brand as a real alternative to the likes of Razer, Corsair or HyperX. But just how good is it?
