Seasonic FOCUS PLUS Gold 550W Power Supply Review
Small computer power supplies that are entirely modular are the cornerstone of Seasonic's Focus Plus series. We are reviewing the Gold variant today rated at 550 watts that has a modern design and with hybrid silent fan control with a fluid dynamic bearing fan. Is the smallest PSU in the Focus Plus series making the cut?
MSI GeForce RTX 2070 GAMING Z Performance Review
We have an exclusive first look at performance of the new MSI GeForce RTX 2070 GAMING Z video cards sporting the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 GPU. We will be comparing performance to a MSI GeForce GTX 1080 GAMING X and ASUS ROG STRIX Vega 64 OC video cards in eight games at 1440p and 4K.
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.
GIGABYTE X399 Aorus Xtreme TR4 Motherboard Review
GIGABYTE expands its Threadripper lineup with its X399 Aorus Xtreme motherboard. This motherboard has a solid, professional focused feature set, and has a lot to offer. We’ve seen some amazing socket TR4 motherboards thus far so the X399 Aorus Xtreme has a lot of competition. We did get to use the Xtreme for a lot of Threadripper testing.
Thermalright ARO-M14G Ryzen AM4 CPU Air Cooler Review
Thermalright is known for low cost CPU air coolers that will get a job done. Its new ARO-M14G is a bit different in form factor than what we are used to seeing from the company, but it claims to have built this heatsink specifically for AMD's Ryzen socket AM4 CPUs. It even goes as far as to suggest it is suitable for fanless operation.
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.
ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2080 Ti and 2080 4K Preview
We look at real-world gaming performance on an ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2080 Ti and ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2080 custom retail factory overclocked video cards at 4K resolution. In this preview we will compare performance in five games at 4K with a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FE and GeForce GTX 1080 FE.
ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2080 Ti and 2080 1440p Preview
We look at gaming performance on ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 2080 overclocked video cards at 1440p. In this preview we will compare performance in five graphically intensive games with a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and GeForce GTX 1080. All real-world gameplay compared. No canned benchmarks.
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. While Brent is banging out a real-world gameplay preview, I have been seeing just where our RTX 2080 Founders Edition ends up in terms of overclocking. We finally got a solid handle on what our particular Turing GPU and memory are capable of.
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.
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.
