Ballistix Sport AT DDR4 Gaming Memory

ASUS and Ballistix are arguably juggernauts in the motherboard and memory industry respectively, so what happens when they work together under the TUF Gaming Alliance umbrella? Ballistix Sport AT is born. Ballistix Sport AT is designed and certified for complete compatibility for ASUS TUF series motherboards. Dressed in the same striking yellow, black, and grey with hints of digital camo, you’ll have aesthetic harmony with other components from the TUF Gaming Alliance. This collaboration just might be TUF to beat.

K70 RGB MK.2

When looking for a premium keyboard, it’s easy to filter out the keyboards that won’t meet your needs based on their set of features. When finally making your decision, it’s often the little details that will set a keyboard apart. Corsair’s K70 RGB MK.2 has the extensive feature list of a great keyboard as well as those little details to set it apart from the competition. It has a similar feature list to its counterpart the STRAFE RGB MK.2 that includes 8MB on-board memory to store profiles, choice of Cherry MX switch (the K70 having more variety), USB pass-through port, and dedicated media controls. The K70 also adds some premium design choices like a full black brushed aluminum frame, stylized backside with oversized rubber feet, and a silver colored volume wheel.

NZXT E850 850W Modular Digital Power Supply

NZXT is no stranger to power supplies, having several models launch over the years, the last of which was nearly two years ago, but it is not really what they are known for. You probably think of cases and RGB fans when you think of NZXT, but with the help of power supply juggernaut Seasonic, NZXT is jumping back in the power supply world with a big hammer, or three of them to be precise. Available in 500W, 650W and 850W capacities, the new E-series power supplies feature a fully modular cable system, digital DSP monitoring, and control through its CAM utility, 80+ Gold certification, and 105C rated Japanese capacitors all under a 10-year warranty.

Swiftech H240X3

In the world of PC cooling you have 3 mainstream options: air, AIO (all in one) or full water loop. Out of the 3, a water loop is the most desired among PC enthusiasts because of its performance and aesthetics. Even though it’s the most desired, few people can justify spending upwards of $600 on a full loop. Swiftech hopes to lower the cost of entry with its expandable AIO: the H240 X3. This cooler isn’t your ordinary AIO because unlike most AIO’s, it gives you the option to expand it with other water-cooling components such as a GPU block. The H240 X3 includes everything you need to start your loop with a 240mm radiator, integrated tempered glass 70ml reservoir, a PWM pump and a Swiftech Apogee SKF “LT” CPU block. With a MSRP of $139.95, it’s an affordable option for someone looking to get into water cooling.

Corsair STRAFE RGB MK2

When looking for a high-end machinal keyboard, most people have a checklist of must-haves before even considering a certain board. For the most part, all of them include: must be RGB, solid build quality, 100% anti-ghosting with full key rollover and quality switches. Corsair’s STRAFE RGB MK.2 checks all of these boxes and also has features like 8MB of onboard memory to store profiles, built in USB pass through, custom key caps for FPS/MOBA’s and a detachable soft-touch wrist.

ASUS ROG STRIX B450-I Gaming

AMD’s latest midrange B450 platform is making quite the splash by offering 99% of what its bigger X470 platform does, but without the price tag to match. The main difference between X470 and B450 is the latter’s lack of being able to split the CPU’s PCIe lanes to more than 1 GPU, but that won’t really matter here on an ITX platform with one slot now will it? We recently checked out the ROG Strix X470-I Gaming so today we’ll check out the new baby brother and you can decide which one you should use.

Intel Core i7-8086K Limited Edition CPU

Launched in mid-1978, the 8086 CPU with its backward compatible x86 instruction set was Intel’s first fully 16-bit microprocessor. When you look at how widespread the x86 instruction set is in the computing world today, it’s hard to believe it was only meant to be a short-lived stepping stone to distract the market. Designed to be source-compatible with older 8008 through 8085 CPU’s while adopting a full 16-bit processing pipeline, the 8086 was only supposed to hold onto Intel’s comparatively small and much-contested market share until the highly ambitious iAPX 432 32-bit processor design project (initially known as Intel 8800) was ready for primetime. There is something to be said for backward compatibility and the 8086 took off and was quickly revised and refined into the basis of what we all know today. 40 years of x86 later, and half a century for the company as a whole, Intel pays homage to that little stepping stone that propelled them to the blue juggernaut we all know today with the Limited Edition Intel Core i7-8086K.

Corsair Hydro H100i PRO RGB 240mm Liquid Cooler

Hot on the heels of the massive Triple 120mm H150I Pro RGB, and the dual 140mm H115i Pro RGB, the new H100i Pro RGB fills in the gap in the updated lineup most commonly used, the dual 120mm size. Replacing the long-standing champion H100i V2 and H100i extreme, the popular size gets the same RGB facelift and quiet but powerful performance upgrade.

Cooler Master MasterCase H500

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.

Kingston A1000 M.2 480GB SSD

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.
