MSI Sea Hawk RTX 2080 Overclocking
MSI sent over its new Sea Hawk RTX 2080 card for use in a build video. This is a fair simple RTX card build that is purchased with a pre-installed All-In-One cooler. We wanted to see how well it overclocked and spent a night of gaming in order to do that and we have to say we were pleased with our results.
Intel Core i5-9600K Processor Overclocking Review
The Intel Core i5-9600K Processor will likely hit the the sweet spot for a lot of desktop PC enthusiasts and gamers. We have a solid 6-Core count with a Turbo Boost clock of 4.6GHz coming in for right around $270. What kind of overclock will the new 9600K CPU support and remain 100% stable?

Noctua AMD Threadripper Air Cooler Roundup
We take all three Noctua air coolers built for AMD Threadripper CPUs and put these to the test on both the 2950X and 2990WX. We run the NH-U14S, NH-U12S, and NH-U9 through the paces with both Precision Boost 2 and Precision Boost Overdrive using multiple fan configurations and compare these to the Silver Arrow and Wraith Ripper too.
GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition Overclocking Final
We finally got in the RTX 2080 video cards we purchased, and we have been putting those to good use.

We finally got a solid handle on what our particular Turing GPU and memory are capable of.
GeForce RTX 2080 Overclocking Preview with Scanner
We have had very little time to play with our new GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition video cards, but we did want to see just how well this new GPU overclocked out of the box. We put NVIDIA's OC Scanner technology to work and give you our thoughts about just how well it works and what results we got.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X Overclocking
We have spent a lot of time understanding the new Threadripper 2950X and how it overclocks. We have put it through the paces using a chiller system, water cooling, and air cooling. We show you what Precision Boost Overdrive and what Precision Boost 2 can push the processor to in terms of stable performance as well as manual overclocking.
