Windows Central: Anda Seat Phantom 3 review: A spacious seat that doesn't take over the room

Anda Seat's Phantom 3 gaming chair is sturdy, sleek, and comfortable. Most importantly to our Sean Endicott, the chair feels spacious without taking up the entire room.

The Guru of 3D: TeamGroup Delta RGB DDR5 6000 MHz CL40 review

Today, we are checking the TeamGroup T-Force Delta RGB 6000 MHz CL40. This is the first DDR5 kit that I had contact with, and overall it’s already from the upper range of the new type of memory (so a nice debut). It has been introduced together with the Intel Alder Lake CPU family but should also be implemented in the AMD AM5 platform. But getting back to the reviewed product, the first information about the new series from TeamGroup memory was published in August’21 (but the maximum frequency was 5600 MHz at that time). The sample that we got is a 2 x 16 GB 6000 MHz model, so it’s a high-frequency kit.

Anandtech: Best Intel Motherboards: February 2022

Last month, Intel pulled the trigger on the rest of its 12th generation Alder Lake processors, with a total of 22 new SKUs available for users to plan, build, and even upgrade their system with. In addition to this, Intel also announced its more affordable H670, B660, and H610 chipsets, which means users arent tied down to the expensive and over-engineered Z690 models. This offers more scope for users to plan an Intel-based system going forward, with a large plethora of configurations such as Core i3, i5, i7, i9, with DDR5 or DDR4 memory, as well as different levels of features from all of Intels 600 series chipsets. Its time to see whats worth buying as we go into our picks for February 2022 in our latest Intel motherboard buyers guide.

LanOC Reviews: TerraMaster D5-300

So for someone like me with a lot of PCs in the house, storage on the network is the way to go. But it’s easy to forget that a lot of people may only have one PC and when that is the case you don’t need to overcomplicate things with networked storage. You can rely on internal or external storage options depending on how much space you need. When it comes to editing video you will see a lot of people with stacks of external hard drives but those don’t offer any redundancy or protection. Something with RAID as a possibility is always going to be the safer bet and TerraMaster has the network and external options covered. I’ve taken a look at a few of their options in the past and they sent over their D5-300 which is a 5 bay USB 3.1 option that just about any PC is going to support. Today I’m going to check out what the D5-300 is all about and see how it performs in a best-case scenario when packed with SSDs. Let’s check it out!
