On July 7th AMD did something historic by releasing both Ryzen 3rd generation processors and the highly anticipated Navi RX 5700/5700XT GPU’s which features 7nm technology. Fast forward to a month later and third-party GPU’s started hitting the shelf like ASUS’s new TUF Gaming X3 RX 5700.  The TUF Gaming X3 RX 5700 features a custom 2.7 slot fan cooler, full aluminum backplate, a 1750 MHz boost clock, and is a member of the TUF gaming alliance. Being a part of the TUF Gaming Alliance, the TUF Gaming X3 RX 5700 is guaranteed to be compatible with other TUF components and also maintains the TUF aesthetic so it matches other TUF hardware. Like many third-party cards, the TUF Gaming X3 RX 5700 comes in at a slight premium over reference cards but still remains affordable with an MSRP of $379.

Li-Heat high-intensity GPU vertical mounting bracket

Video card manufacturers have been dressing up their offerings for a long time, but showing off that aesthetical hard work has only recently caught the eye of mainstream builders. A big part of that has been the more recent availability of quality, flexible PCIe risers, of which Li-Heat is also a market leader.  While many recent cases have started coming with a place to vertical mount a GPU, there are a few common problems with them. One of the biggest deal-breakers is being too close to the side panel or glass cover. It doesn’t matter how great your card looks if it’s always screaming at you for some fresh air. The next issue is a lack of adjustability or accommodation for oversized cards. Most of the recent cards are landing somewhere between two and three slots. Li-Heat fixes all of that in one clean sweep with the new high-intensity GPU Vertical Mounting bracket, and we’re going to see just how it stacks up to the rest!

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!
