26 AMD socket AM4 motherboards review: the best boards for Ryzen
When AMD introduced their Ryzen processors earlier this year, the various motherboard manufacturers carefully released a couple of models on the market. These days AMD's new CPUs can easily be called a success and the market for socket AM4 motherboards has become large enough to offer buyers plenty of choice. This of course begs the following question: which of the 26 motherboards should you choose for your AMD Ryzen system?

The most obvious option is to combine a socket AM4 motherboard with a Ryzen processor, however this isn't your only option. The recently-introduced Bristol Ridge APUs utilize the same socket. If you were wondering why many X370 and B350 motherboards feature monitor outputs, even though Ryzen does not feature an integrated GPU, this is your answer right here.

AMD Launches Ryzen Mobile APUs Combining Zen And Vega For Powerhouse Laptops
AMD is officially launching a processor family that is internally known at AMD as Raven Ridge, but now will be referred to as Ryzen Mobile.

The architecture combines both its new Zen CPU core, along with AMD's RX Vega GPU integrated into a single chip for laptops. There are two initial chips in the mobile processor family that AMD is announcing today: the Ryzen 5 2500U and the Ryzen 7 2700U.

Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-04 Tempered Glass Case Review
It is almost a requirement for any new case to feature tempered glass of some sort, usually in the case of a side panel. The tempered glass trend has been around for a while now, and some manufacturers are taking a look at some of their previous designs and incorporating glass side panels where they deem it to be appropriate. Corsair is not one to slack behind, and they have just released the SPEC-04 Tempered Glass, a slightly re-designed version of their popular Carbide Series SPEC-04 budget case that now includes a tempered glass side panel, for just $69.

Corsair Carbide Spec-04 Tempered Glass Review
Corsair’s Carbide series is renowned for its variety, with cases to match many a system build. At the budget end, one of its more attractive products is the Spec-04; a reassuring reminder that for around £60 both engaging design and a side-panel window are attainable.

Corsair has spotted an opportunity for the Spec-04 though, choosing to augment it to fit a current trend. As the name suggests, the Carbide Spec-04 Tempered Glass switches out the perspex. In its place is a full glass side panel offering an unimpaired internal view.

Corsair Spec-04 TG Budget Build
So today Corsair is introducing their new Spec case and typically I would check it out in one of our traditional case reviews. I’ve done this so many times in the past, in fact I counted, we have done 112 case reviews over the past 9 to 10 years. To do something different this time around I decided rather than do a review that we take a look at the case then do a build in it. So like the original Spec-04, the Spec-04 Tempered Glass model is a budget case. It has an MSRP of $59 so to go with that I thought I would put together a budget build to go along with it. I can’t wait to see how well it performs!

MSI Clutch GM70 & GM60 Reviewed
This may start to sound like a broken record at this point, but my major and only complaint is MSI's Gaming Center software. Before I get to that, I think I should point out that MSI never states what software to download in the included booklet. It just states to go to MSI's website, which isn't very helpful in my opinion. It may seem like a nick picky thing to talk about, but a lot of people are not patient enough to sift through a website for an unknown program. This can be an easy fix by just including what software is needed, so I'll stop myself here and let MSI sort this out for future production runs. Back to the actual software. I will say that when it is working, I had a very enjoyable experience with it. However, it often reverted back to defaults when a mouse was unplugged or the computer was restarted. MSI does not include any sort of user guide or ReadMe, which leaves the user confused about what each function does. You, as an owner of one of these mice, will no doubt have to Google things to figure out how these settings play a role in the bigger picture. It is very easy to click on something or move a slider and not know it. Even worse, there is no default button (other than different profiles), which does not help the situation. Having played with all the settings, I found myself using different profiles and taking pictures to note what is default so I could compare the settings I just changed.

MSI Cubi 3 Silent Review
A pint-sized Core i5 PC with zero fan noise. When we reviewed the Cubi 2 back in April, we came away feeling as though MSI was close to creating a near-perfect ultra-small PC. The itty-bitty machine came fully loaded with memory, storage and Windows 10, taking away any of the guesswork associated with barebone rivals, and it had plenty of ports, including USB 3.1 Type-C.

All that was needed, we felt, was for the HDMI port to be upgraded from 1.4 to 2.0, in order to enable 4K60 on the big screen, and the price to drop to a more reasonable level. £450 was about as much as a fully-fledged laptop, complete with screen, keyboard and mouse, making the standalone PC a tough sell.
