Is anyway to improve Radeon VII power efficiency, GPU temperature, and fan noise without drastically changing the gameplay experience. Is Radeon Chill or GPU undervolting the answer? We run the Radeon VII through some real world gaming and show you exactly what Chill and Undervolting will do to, or for your gameplay.
Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB RAM Experiences
Corsair is adding a huge 64GB RAM kit that many enthusiast High End Desk Top users might be interested in. We take the new Dominator Platinum RGB DIMMs for a ride on both Intel X299 and AMD X399 systems and see how the clocks shake out.

AMD Radeon VII Video Card Review
The AMD Radeon VII has been launched and we take it through its paces in eight games compared to an MSI GeForce RTX 2080 VENTUS video card dollar-to-dollar at $699.99, and throw in the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition as well for a complete comparison. Only real gameplay tested as usual.

We show you what is inside the new AMD Radeon VII reviewer's kit, and then breakdown the entire video card to show you what is under that sleek new shroud.
AMD Radeon VII Interview with Scott Herkelman
We had the opportunity to talk to Scott Herkelman at AMD about the new Radeon VII GPU at CES 2019, and he was kind enough to answer questions that we had. We get his thoughts on the new Radeon VII, its full specifications and die size, FreeSync, multi-GPU, 16GB of HBM2, AMD getting back into direct retail sales of video cards, and more.
MSI X399 Creation Threadripper Build - Start to Finish
Building a new computer for yourself is always fun. We had the chance to do it ourselves recently, and we decided to document the entire process on video. We use the MSI MEG X399 Creation motherboard and the MSI RTX 2080 Sea Hawk as the backbone of our system along with an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X.
Thermaltake Toughpower Grand RGB 850W Gold RGB
The Thermaltake Toughpower Grand RGB 850W Gold (RGB Sync Edition) claim to fame is that we can now have Frag Harder Disco Lights on, or rather inside of our PSU. While the RGB lighting is not much concern to us, we do however want to know if this Thoughpower stays inside ATX specification, and if so, does it shine brightly while doing it?
Intel Core i9-9980XE vs AMD Ryzen Threadripper
Today Intel is kicking off its newest High End Desktop processor, the Intel Core i9-9980XE Extreme Edition. This 14nm Skylake-X CPU boasts 18 Cores and 36 Threads and has an expected retail price of $1979. We compare the i9-9980XE to AMD's entire line of Threadripper CPUs to see where the 9980XE sits in the HEDT stack.
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.
Thermaltake Toughpower GX1 700W Power Supply Review
Thermaltake is no stranger to HardOCP when it comes to making Toughpower PSUs. We have used these for years ourselves. The newest Toughpower is part of Thermaltake's GX1 series. This GX1 700 watt unit touts Gold level efficiency, a fluid dynamic bearing fan, and is oddly not modular in any way, which is something very unusual in today's market.
Threadripper Air Coolers-Silver Arrow TR4 vs. Wraith Ripper
Cooling the AMD Threadripper CPUs is not to be taken for granted. We pit the Thermalright Silver Arrow TR4 against the Cooler Master Wraith Ripper using both the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX and 2950X processors. We show you how both these air coolers perform using Precision Boost 2 and Precision Boost Overdrive.
The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is Too Damn High!
Is the RTX 2080 Ti FE priced too damn high, or is it not? What about the RTX 2080 FE card? Certainly RTX pricing has been a hot topic lately, but what if we adjusted for inflation and actually compared launch prices of NVIDIA video cards over the last 18 years or so? That is exactly what we have done, and laid it all out, so you can make up your own mind.
