MSI's MEG CoreLiquid S280 has top tier cooling performance, and is one of the few coolers I would recommend for overclocking Alder Lake
DeepCool's KG722 is a quality 65% keyboard that provides a great typing experience and has a very sturdy build quality - I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to get their first mechanical keyboard.
The $619.99 i9-12900k provides incredible uplifts in both gaming and productivity, while the $299.99 i5-12600k is the star of the show providing better overall performance than Intel's i9-10900k and uses significantly less power to do so.
The Article here is a transcription of the video posted above. So, our aim today is to find out what...
In this review we'll be looking at the AsRock z590 PG Velocita, which is currently available on Amazon for $289.99. This is one of the higher end gaming-focused motherboards in AsRock's z590 lineup, it's name "Velocita" meaning "velocity" in Italian. As such, we're expecting it to be fast. Does it live up to it's name? Keep Reading.
I genuinely enjoyed testing MSI's GK50 Elite. I'm giving this keyboard our Gold Award because I can't mash my fingertips on it, I can type fairly fast on it, and it's lower height means a wrist rest isn't a necessity. Combine all of the above with it's budget price tag of $69.99, and the GK50 Elite provides a value that's hard to beat.
MSI's CoreLiquid K360 provided better than expected performance when testing Intel's i9-12900k, and kept it cool in scenarios most other coolers fail. Alder Lake’s thermal density makes cooling high TDP loads a lot harder than cooling previous generation CPUs, and the MSI K360 CoreLiquid rises to the challenge.
In multi-threaded tasks the 12700 is just shy (~8%) of AMD's Ryzen 5900x on average, and a bit faster (~16%) in single threaded tasks. Cooling it is easy, and for most users the included stock cooler will actually suffice in most tasks - although it does run a bit noisy. With an expected retail price of ~$350, the i7 12700 packs a great value - especially when paired with a b660 motherboard. It's crazy to think that for the price of a 5900x, you can get this CPU and a motherboard
Fast, Ultrawide, and Cheap are three words I've never used to describe a 21:9 monitor before - but in this case, the description is accurate. Viotek's GNV30CBXA provides a great value in a highly niche market, and is substantially improved versus it's predecessor with faster refresh rates, better response times, and a vastly better stand.
Today we test Enermax ETS-T50 budget cooler as well as a high end cooler from Noctua, the NH-D15
When Rocketlake launched, I declined to call my coverage of it a "review" because the motherboards I had available were either using early (buggy) BIOSes and/or were experiencing other problems. Have these BIOS updates improved the situation at all? Keep reading.
