AeroCool Project7 P7-C1 Reader Review
Today, a new reader review has been published. Berserkus is testing the AeroCool Project7 P7-C1 Tempered Glass Edition mid-tower case in his first reader review on OCinside.de. The tempered-glass side panel looks very good and we should not be afraid about scratches when cleaning, which unfortunately happens with plexiglass.

AMD Ryzen R7 1700
The AMD Ryzen launch was exciting and filled with drama. The hype levels peaked just before the launch and while the performance was amazing in almost every benchmark there were some people surprised at the in game performance numbers and a few of the early issues with the new platform. On top of all of that, for me, I was also dealing with a dead CPU right at the launch. Our original review was written to include the R7 1700 but due to having trouble with it those results had to be pushed until AMD sent a replacement. Well that came in and I was able to get it tested but our review queue was already filled with completed coverage. So today I finally have the chance to take a closer look at it. Now I recommend everyone check out my original review for most of the details on the launch as this was an unplanned article, but once you are done we can run through the performance of the lowest priced Ryzen 7 CPU and find out if it is the value CPU to pick up right now.

ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Strix review: the first custom 1080 Ti
The ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Strix is the first custom 1080 Ti that reached our test lab. It is not just a custom 1080 Ti, but in many ways a radical change in the design of ASUS graphics cards. We take a look at the new features and of course we tested the Strix thoroughly.

It is a classical battle with the new high-end Nvidia model – who will release their own custom version first? MSI was the first with the GTX 1080, but this time their rival ASUS was first in line. That does not mean they rushed the job – aside from a new cooler the PCB went through a complete redesign in comparison with the Nvidia Founders Edition.

The 1080 Ti has been available for about a week now and is comparable with the Titan X Pascal that was released last year. The differences in configuration are relatively small: the 1080 Ti has slightly less memory and a smaller memory bus, but comes with higher clockspeeds. The price difference – about 694 pounds / 800 euros for the 1080 Ti versus more than 1133 pounds / 1300 euros for the Titan X – is so high that the 1080 Ti will be a lot more interesting for gamers.

Corsair One Pro Review
Corsair's take on the future of gaming PCs. In our opinion, the biggest change in the PC landscape during the last five years hasn't been massively more performance - you expect faster components year on year - but rather the drive towards energy efficiency. We've mentioned on many occasions that it's possible to build a really good gaming system without the need for a small power station nearby.

A very pertinent case in point is our standard gaming test system, comprising an overclocked Core i7 chip, 32GB of RAM, dual SSDs and, of course, a premium graphics card. If built with due care and attention, a PC featuring a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti consumes less than 300W at the wall when gaming at 4K. And it's quiet into the bargain, too.

So, in early 2017, it makes perfect sense to take advantage of the enviable performance-per-watt characteristics to build systems small in size but big on performance. Guess what, that is exactly what a well-known company has done, and it happens to be Corsair. Let's take a look at the 'category defying' Corsair One, shall we?

Cougar QBX Kaze Review
The QBX Kaze from Cougar appears to be a rather interesting mini-ITX case. Despite the small size it offers plenty of space and flexibility on the inside and therefore you can install high-end graphics card as well as a 240mm radiator. This small cube could be perfectly suitable for HTPC builds and apart from that you could even create a very small LAN party rig. Last but not least also the price is very interesting.

Cryorig H7 Air Cooler Review
Billed as a 'Hyper 212 EVO' killer, I have been itching to review the Cryorig H7 for a long time now. On the face of it, it does not look that special, measuring just 145mm tall and utilising a mere 3 heatpipes. But is its appearance deceiving? We will find out.

Ryzen Vs Intel GTX 1080 Ti Showdown Revisited: More Resolutions, Overclocks & Games
Ryzen has been with us for a few weeks now, and there has been quite the rollercoaster of feedback from around the world about its performance. We've tested the CPUs, and they're pretty fantastic and offer some excellent performance, despite a few issues with memory speeds and latency. While we tested the Ryzen 1800X with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti to see how well the new flagship AMD CPU would work in a high-end gaming PC, a few people didn't take kindly to us using overclocks only on Ryzen. I initially tested on stock only and matched that with the stock performance on the i7-5820K, as we do with all GPUs on that chip as it's our graphics card test bench. I did the same with the 7700K as I had access to it and my whole trip was to give us some metric for the stock and overclocked gaming performance of Ryzen. However, many of you wanted the Intel chips to be overclocked, and we're not going to shy away from what our readers want, and we're going above and beyond.

Scan 3XS Vengeance Ti Review
Killer combo: Core i7-7700K and GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. C enthusiasts with cash on the hip have a new graphics card to covet: Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is here and stands unchallenged as the finest consumer GPU to date. The natural companion for a high-end gaming build is Intel's latest-generation Core i7-7700K and we expect to see every top-tier system integrator putting forth this dynamic duo in a range of premium rigs. Never one to hold back, Scan Computers is quick off the mark with the 3XS Vengeance Ti.

Priced at £2,100 and described as "ideal for high resolution and VR gaming," the Vengeance Ti is an early showcase of what the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition can do in an overclocked machine geared for enthusiasts. It's a good-looking piece of kit, with Scan opting to use Corsair's glass-laden Crystal Series 460X RGB chassis as the foundation, and all the core components you'd expect to find on the inside are present and accounted for.
