Anandtech: The Intel Core i9-9900KS Review: The 5 GHz Consumer Special
Intel likes 5.0 GHz processors. The one area where it claims a clear advantage over AMD is in its ability to drive the frequency of its popular 14nm process. Earlier this week, we reviewed the Core i9-9990XE, which is a rare auction only CPU but with 14 cores at 5.0 GHz, built for the high-end desktop and high frequency trading market. Today we are looking at its smaller sibling, the Core i9-9900KS, built in numbers for the consumer market: eight cores at 5.0 GHz. But you’ll have to be quick, as Intel isn’t keeping this one around forever.

APH Networks: Sennheiser Momentum Wireless Review
When I went to San Francisco two years ago, I stayed at an Airbnb on Nob Hill. There were highlights about our accommodation, such as the good location and proximity to public transit. The living situation in our area was a bit cramped, especially with us sharing washrooms with other residents, but it was expected. However, if there was one thing to nitpick, it was actually the owners of the complex. Everything seemed fine, but on the last day, they invited us into their own quarters to watch a basketball game on the television. The owner's brother was also over that evening and so they started chatting about their family business. Unfortunately, they stopped watching their Golden State Warriors and the real match started in the living room. What started as playful jabbing devolved into fierce verbal sparring. At this point, my friend and I left the room, because we had enough of the battles both on and off the court.

OCInside: Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS Flight Pack
If you think about high-quality control units for sophisticated flight simulations and space flight simulations, Thrustmaster is a must. With the T.16000M FCS Flight Pack, Thrustmaster offers a set consisting of the FCS Flight Stick, the TWCS throttle and the TFRP foot pedals at a very attractive price. After the Thrustmaster Hotas Warthog review we have now taken a closer look at the lower-priced overall package and made a few laps with various virtual flying objects.

Mad Shrimps: ASRock X570 Taichi AM4 Motherboard Review
The X570 Taichi AM4 motherboard from ASRock does incorporate the latest technologies and thanks to the latest AGESA microcode updates it does allow the Ryzen 3000 series to run at optimal boost speeds. While we consider that the latest AMD processors do run optimally at stock settings (by boosting depending on the usage conditions, which can be also named as automatic overclocking), enthusiasts can also use the UEFI settings for improving the system performance even more.
