EVGA Z390 Dark Motherboard Review
While many of the tier one motherboard makers have abandoned factory supported overclocking you can still find hardware that supports it. Generally speaking this hardware always costs more due to the additional accessories and extra time building and testing that everything works as it should. Of course that is for mainstream hardware that you find on launch day and is where many companies stop.

To find hardware that is truly unique you must play the waiting game. This is what we did back in the DFI LanParty days where you would often wait six months for the new overclocking board to be released only to have a revision to that board come out a short time later. Those were the awesome times to be a hardware enthusiast and yet many were upset.

In this review I’ll be looking at what might be considered the next best thing, the EVGA Z390 Dark. Much like what DFI did with their LanParty boards the EVGA Dark is what I would call a revision and enhancement of the EVGA Z390 FTW that improves and tunes the motherboard for extreme overclocking while still offering out of box performance for fans of high-end hardware.

Huawei MateBook 13 Review
Huawei is perhaps best known as the second largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. The Chinese company recently surpassed Apple's marketshare despite difficulties cracking the U.S. market. The company has enjoyed strong demand for their products internationally, thanks to competitive pricing and premium designs. We have previously reviewed Huawei's MateBook X Pro and Matebook D notebooks and found both to be solid values and worthy of recommendation. At CES this year, Huawei introduced its newest ultrabook, the Matebook 13. We took it for a spin to see how it compares to Huawei's other offerings, and the competition...

ID-Cooling Auraflow X 360 AIO CPU Cooler Review
If there is one thing to be said about ID-Cooling, it’s that they are a brand that deserves a lot more respect and attention than they (seem) to get. Admittedly, as a brand, they are not particularly well recognised in Europe and America, but there is honestly no reason (at least in terms of the products they create) why that should be.

Having reviewed a number of their coolers in the past, we have never failed to be impressed with their products and particularly the highly-attractive price tags that often come with them. You should not, however, be fooled into thinking they’re a cheap and cheerful company. Yes, they do create inexpensive coolers, but they’re not afraid to go for the high-end while providing them at a wallet-friendly price.

With all this in mind, the Auraflow range is certainly one to be taken into consideration. With the newly released ID-Cooling Auraflow X 360 coming into our possession this represents their latest release and the logical progression to their prior 240 design. Offering RGB lighting effects across a 360mm design, this should not only perform well but look fantastic while doing it!

The death of Windows Phone and the five stages of mobile grief
Running Windows Phone so I can stay 100% Microsoft is totally fine, even if it's 2019. Nothing else out there strikes the balance I'm looking for. I don't need any apps that I don't already have. I like having an unusual phone, even if it's showing its age a bit. Someone needs to carry this torch. I can hold out until Microsoft gets its act together and comes back to mobile with a new offering.Anger Freaking Microsoft! I still can't believe they dropped Windows Phone after all this time. Why do they always do this? The only reason it failed is because they didn't try harder.
