Do you like the aesthetics of Cooler Masters H series, but don’t have the budget for a higher end case? Well, Cooler Master may have the answer with the MasterCase H500. The H500 has taken the design elements from other cases in the H series and added a few surprises of its own. Like the H500M, this case also includes a swappable front panel. You have the choice between a lightly tinted acrylic or the pre-installed mesh. Other key features included are: 2 x 200mm RGB fans with an RGB controller, a convenient handle for moving around your case and a full tinted tempered glass side panel. Even with this extensive list of features, the H500 comes in at an affordable $99 MSRP.
For the Last couple of years that PCIe based SSD’s have been around, they have been firmly in the realm of the more deep-pocketed enthusiast niche. In the last few months, we’ve seen some more budget-friendly drives coming out based around newer low-cost controllers. These entry-level drives are aiming squarely at displacing SATA SSD’s with performance several times higher in the same cost per capacity segment. Today we’ll be checking out Kingston’s Entry-Level offering, the A1000. Offering more than double the performance than SATA is even capable of for a price nearly identical to a premium SATA offering, this just might be one foot in the grave for SATA SSD’s.
With ASUS’s ROG Strix line of products being quite popular with gamers, and AMD’s Ryzen CPU’s also gaining back quite a bit of Intel’s market share in a short time period, coupled with the demand for smaller and more efficient systems, it’s a no-brainer that ASUS would launch the updated ROG Strix X470-I Gaming. Following hot on the heels of its X370-I Gaming, the X470-I gaming gives it a 2nd generation update under the hood while retaining a well thought out layout jam-packed with features. Today we’ll see just what changes have been made to the Ryzen 2nd generation platform.
When looking for a mechanical keyboard, you are often overwhelmed with a wide range of choices in features and switch type. There’s a lot of people who are just looking for a quality mechanical keyboard that is RGB backlit and really don’t know the differences between all the switches. It’s these people that Cooler Master hopes to help with its newest keyboard additions: the CK550 and CK552. Both of these keyboards feature a minimalistic design, a curved aluminum top, floating keys, Gateron switches and on-the-fly RGB controls.
In the consumer PC world, Intel is a very well-known name, but not typically for storage. If you are familiar with Intel’s SSD offerings, you either work around datacenters, or more likely, you’ve had some time with one of the datacenter drives gone consumer known as the Intel 750 series. You know, the one everyone wanted to water cool a few years ago. More recently you may be familiar with some of the Optane offerings, but Intel now has SSD’s targeted squarely at the mainstream segment of the consumer market with the 760p series. Offered in M.2 form-factor with capacities ranging from 128GB to a whopping 2TB, this might just be your next SSD.
In line with MasterCase’s commitment to unparalleled customization and flexibility, Cooler Master has added another case to the H500 series with the MasterCase H500M. At first glance, the H500M may resemble its older brother, the H500P. But, Cooler Master has gone the extra mile with the H500M and added tempered glass panels to the top and back-side as well as added ability to easily change out the front mesh panel to one made of tempered glass. Other features include: a fully removable PSU shroud, additional cables for ARGB support and a GPU support arm. In addition, you will find a 2 x 200mm ARGB fans, Rear 140mm 1200RPM fan, and an ARGB controller.
iClever has long been known as a manufacturer of chargers and other power related technology solutions. Recently, however, they have started making their way into more high-tech fields such as wireless headphones. Today we have the iClever XFree Mini magnetic Bluetooth headphones. These headphones sport many exciting and innovative features that we can’t wait to try out. Thanks for sending them over iClever!
Cooler Master is a staple in the world of DIY computer building. One of the most important decisions to make about a computer build is what chassis you are going to use. It dictates a lot about the contents and limitations of a system - motherboard form factor, GPU height/length, tower cooler size, and watercooling options just to name a few.
When it comes to PC building many people start with a CPU and motherboard. But there is a fine group of people that start with the humble case. Yes, the humble PC case has grown over the years from solid panels to digital screens and more. But the most popular is the Tempered glass panel case. Which Phanteks just happen to make and they sent their special edition Red and Black Eclipse P300 Tempered Glass and you have to check out how this cost-efficient, beautiful case.
The storage world is a continuous march towards bigger, better, and eventually, cheaper. You always have those on the bleeding edge willing to pay the early adopter tax on the latest and greatest, but much of the market is a generation or two behind just to avoid a second mortgage. SSD’s have been around awhile now, most directly replacing mechanical disks on the SATA III 6 Gbps bus that turns ten years old later this summer. More recently, Solid-State Drives have moved to PCIe through the universally confusing M.2 port but the cost per gigabyte has left most still using the 2nd drive for more space with the operating system and a few things on the SSD only. PCIe NVMe drive prices have been trickling down, but we are just now starting to see a level of cost parity from PCIe to SATA SSD’s and today we’ll be looking at a new offering from Corsair that aims to take on that market segment.
