Logitech G513 Carbon Gaming Keyboard Review

Logitech G513 Carbon Gaming Keyboard Review My experience with the G513 has been all positive. No problems at all. The G513 Carbon Gaming Keyboard comes in at $149, and sure, that is a chunk of change, but for the top-notch build quality and features, you won’t be disappointed. The G513 sort of spoils it for …

MSI X370 XPower Gaming Titanium Motherboard Review Overall, I was very pleased with the performance I was able to get out of the X370 XPower Gaming Titanium.

DiRT 4 Game Review

DiRT 4 Game Review The graphics might not be the best you can find, but where they really matter is where you will find they look best. At maximum settings the game is completely playable for me, but I believe I will be turning settings down to improve performance. Over time I do think optimizations …

ECS LIVA Z Small Form Factor PC Review

ECS LIVA Z Small Form Factor PC Review I am still puzzled by the choice of layout after staring at it for these past few weeks. Having two Gigabit Ethernet ports on the back without any USB ports is a questionable decision from a real estate standpoint. During my time with this unit, between a …

VIVO CASE-V07 PC Case Review

VIVO CASE-V07 PC Case Review I wasn’t sure what to expect at first, since VIVO is known more for monitor mounts, TV mounts, and other non-computer case-related hardware. However, I am not disappointed. The CASE-V07 hits the sweet spot between afforability and features. Not long ago, case designers had to squeeze out as much space …

Galactic Civilizations III: Crusade Game Review

Galactic Civilizations III: Crusade Game Review Crusade changes Galactic Civilizations III a lot and I do not doubt that some of the changes some players will hate and others will love.

XFX Radeon RX 580 8GB GTS Black Edition Video Card Review

XFX Radeon RX 580 8GB GTS Black Edition Video Card Review What surprised me most about this card when I was overclocking was that I was not able to get it above a 1440MHz clock speed no matter what I tried. This is 88MHz less than I was able to push out of the PowercColor …

MSI GTX 1080 Ti Armor 11G Video Card Review

MSI GTX 1080 Ti Armor 11G Video Card Review From a stock performance perspective, the MSI GTX 1080 Ti Armor 11G is a beast of a card. It over delivers its rated boost clock speed by a wide margin in pretty much every game and load that I tested with. This allows it to deliver …

AMD Ryzen 5 1600X & 1500X Processor Review

AMD Ryzen 5 1600X & 1500X Processor Review Here we are at the end of Ryzen Part Deux and I have to say that, for the most part, scaling the architecture down does hit on some performance points. As you might expect, the results to show and prove that dropping the core count by 50% …

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080Ti Founders Edition Video Card Review

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080Ti Founders Edition Video Card Review Stock performance metrics show that NVIDIA’s target of a 35% boost in performance over the GTX 1080 was not an idle boast.

RAIDMAX Monster II PC Case Review

RAIDMAX Monster II PC Case Review The Monster II has a different look to it. With the deep grooved front fascia and top section, you can’t really confuse it with other cases. That really makes this case stand out. But it is not flashy or over the top either. It just looks good. I do …

ECS LIVA Z Micro PC Review

ECS LIVA Z Micro PC Review The Celeron itself was mediocre at best from my experience. Two cores weren’t enough to get a responsive feel while browsing the web. It did however load up Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16.04 just fine and was snappy in the interface, but using applications or browsing the web showed …

Intel 7th Generation Core i3 7350K Processor Review

Intel 7th Generation Core i3 7350K Processor Review As a K-SKU processor, the Core i3 7350K is an overclocking enabled and unlocked processor. The expectation is that it should overclock as well as its full core count siblings, such as the Core i7 7700K. And that it does, with a fairly robust 4.9GHz clock speed …

AMD Ryzen 7 1800X, 1700X, and 1700 Processor Review When it comes to performance, the R7 1800X, R7 1700X, and R7 1700 all deliver exceptional performance. Not only when you compare against AMD’s own FX previous generation CPU’s, but against Intel’s new Kaby Lake Core i7 7700K and Haswell-E 8C/16T Core i7 5960X. In heavy …

Galactic Civilizations III v2.0 Game Review

Galactic Civilizations III v2.0 Game Review Just one more turn. I think that rather familiar phase sums up my feeling on Galactic Civilizations III quite well; I want to play another turn, and another, and another. Typically in 4X games I prefer the civilization development half of the game or the military half of the …

Anonabox FAWKES Tor Router Review

Anonabox FAWKES Tor Router Review As we saw with the Pro, the TOR performance is meager, but this is the design of TOR. TOR hops around the world to “wrap” your data in, hence the name The Onion Router. Because your hops and exit nodes are spread all over the world, your traffic is bouncing …
