Patriot Signature Line Premium DDR4 Memory

With the flood of flashy RGB enabled memory on the market that can hit speeds faster than most CPU’s, it’s easy to forget that most of the systems out there aren't able to overclock and wouldn’t be able to take advantage of those speeds, even if you wanted to pay the significant premium to own them. Does this mean you can't have great performance and good looks? Not at all. Dressed in the little black dress of the memory world, a sleek black heat spreader, Patriot’s Signature Line Premium doesn’t make compromises.

X570 AORUS Pro WIFI

With AMD releasing their 3rd generation of Ryzen processors and the new X570 chipset, each manufacturer will release their new lineup of boards. Gigabyte has done this by continuing its AORUS lineup we saw with Intel’s Z390 chipset, which includes boards at all price points like the AORUS Elite, AORUS Pro, AORUS Pro WIFI, AORUS Ultra, AORUS Master, and the AORUS Xtreme. For users looking for an AORUS motherboard, your choice will depend on what high-end features you are looking for. Someone not looking for additional armor, three M.2 slots, or more advanced network connectivity may look at the X570 AORUS Pro WIFI which provides a little bit of everything. The AORUS Pro WIFI features a 12+2 phase digital VRM solution, dual NVMe PCIe 4.0/3.0 x4 M.2 slots, Intel WIFI 6 802.11ax, Intel Gigabit LAN, Integrated rear I/O Shield, and ALC1220-VB Audio IC. Being that the AORUS Pro WIFI sits in the middle of the AORUS lineup of motherboards, it remains quite affordable at an MSRP of $269.

Kingston KC2000 1TB M.2 2280 NVMe SSD

The world of SATA based SSD’s is slowly coming to a close with the raw speed and performance of PCIe based drives falling to near price parity. The benefit is radically increased bandwidth, up to about 6x the raw speed and some drives are so small they can slot right into your desktop motherboard or laptop with no need for pesky cables. Kingston’s latest KC2000 NVMe PCIe SSD falls into this category in its M.2 2280 form-factor that brings 3200 MB/s reads and 2200 MB/s write speeds to capacities from 250GB to 2TB. Add in a 5-year warranty and you have the recipe for success, but does that translate to real-world performance? Let’s find out!

EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER BLACK GAMING

For the past couple of graphics generations, EVGA’s ‘Black’ cards have been an affordable way for gamers to get a great value without compromises to cooling or performance. They are also arguably one of the better-looking cards as the sleek black cooler blends in with any aesthetic and those few among us still riding the anti-RGB train can rejoice at the lack of ‘unicorn puke’. The two-slot iCX2 powered cooling solution keeps you cool during the most intense battle sessions without the need to get distractingly loud. The Nvidia reference design also allows an easy upgrade path to liquid cooling with EVGA’s Hybrid cooling kit or even to a full custom loop with EVGA’s HYDRO COPPER water block. If your gaming machine needs a SUPER stealthy upgrade, this just might be the card for you!
