Enermax LIQTECH II 360 All-in-One 360mm Liquid Cooler

Not long ago in the PC world, A “high end” gaming system had a quad-core CPU at its heart. Something in the 90W TDP range that might pull 150W when heavily overclocked. Fast-forward to today and a high-end CPU can easily hit 200W+ at stock and soar into the 300, 400 or even 500-watt range at full load while overclocked. There are some decent air coolers out there, but most performance-oriented users turn towards liquid cooling, and for good reason. Enermax has jumped right into the high-end All-in-One market with its massive new Liqtech II 360. That’s right, a full 360mm of glorious RGB enabled liquid cooling, available in the always classic black or a crisp and clean white. With a claimed 500W+ TDP handling, the Liqtech II 360 should be ready for every enthusiast's dream system!

A nice headset is a staple to a good build. Whether you have a sleeping baby in the room next to you, or the late-night gaming sessions; you might not always want the sound coming from the speakers. If you’re in a situation in a game where you need to hear footsteps, the best audio in that situation would be a nice gaming headset that is crisp and clear.  The Tt eSPORTS Pulse G100 RGB headset might be the next headset you pick up. With its 53mm neodymium driver with superior sound quality, 3D RGB color illumination, adjustable leatherette headband design with soft cushioned support, and built-in physical controls for easy access to volume, microphone, and lighting controls, this headset has it all.

GeIL Super Luce RGB Sync 4133Mhz DDR4 Gaming Memory

GeIL’s Super Luce memory was one of the first LED-equipped memory modules to do something besides just light up. The iLuce Thermal-Beaming technology would indicate module temperature by varying the temp of the breathing effect of the lighting. A few years later GeIL added RGB for gaming aesthetics and made it controllable from many of the industries favorite RGB control software such as ASUS’s Aura Sync, Gigabyte’s RGB Fusion, and MSI’s Mystic Light Sync to seamlessly blend into the rest of your perfect gaming system. As processors increase and core count and more and more users demand every bit of performance out of their system, memory bandwidth has started to become a bottleneck. GeIL once again is getting ahead of the curve by upping memory speeds to a staggering 4133MHz out of the box. Does this extra speed get you anything? Let’s take it for a spin and see.

Viper V765 Mechanical RGB Gaming Keyboard

The humble keyboard has come a long way from the original QWERTY plank, and yet at the same time, nothing much has changed. For most, you press a key get a character and life goes on. Gamers started demanding things like macro buttons to help get that last little edge in games, and their aesthetic demands led to things like RGB lighting. As often happens, this has spilled over into segments. The ability to program complex macros was found to be quite useful to power users and the productivity world where a few dedicated macro keys just weren’t enough. Viper has taken this to the limit with the V765 where every single key can be reprogrammed, turned into a macro or execute all manner of useful things while maintaining the sleek and highly customizable aesthetics gamers require. Let’s take a closer look at the V765 Mechanical RGB Gaming Keyboard!

Intel Core i7-9800X

Intel’s High-End Desk Top (HEDT) brings workstation class performance together with enthusiast level features for a no-compromise machine ready for work and play. The first series of CPU’s to hit the LGA 2066 socket came in two flavors, the lower end Kabylake-X starting at quad-core with dual-channel memory and Skylake-X continuing up to 18-cores with quad-channel memory and featuring either 16, 28 or 44 PCIe lanes. This made for a bit of a confusing mess and that’s before discussing the pros and cons of Intel’s choice of using paste as the thermal transfer medium, much to the outrage of extreme overclockers.  Intel has taken the opportunity to make things right and refreshed the lineup with the new 9000 series additions to the Skylake-X family. Every single SKU features a full complement of 44 PCIe lanes, quad-channel memory and a soldered Heat spreader for maximum overclocking performance. Today we’ll be checking out the Core i7-9800X, the lowest position in the new lineup but still packing 8 cores and a 165W TDP into the latest X299 boards.

Cooler Master NR400

With the recent surge in high-end mITX and mATX motherboards, builders are moving to more compact cases. Generally, the trade-off between full-sized ATX and mATX cases is less room for cooling solutions resulting in higher system temperatures. Cooler Master’s new case, the NR400, offers a compact chassis that has been designed with cooling performance in mind. The NR400’s body consists of all steel construction, a mesh front panel, removable magnetic dust filter on the top and also has the option for one 5.25” drive bay up front. Despite its smaller form factor, the NR400 has ample room cooling hardware with it supporting a 280mm radiator up top, 280mm up front and a 120mm at the back. The NR400 is also gentle on your wallet coming in at an MSRP of only $59.99.
