Asus ROG Ryujin 360 VRM Review

We take the AIO apart, build a new loop out of it and cool a previously delidded Intel Core i9-7900X without heatspreader with liquid metal. As always including new videos, whereby you shouldn’t miss the extensive video with the water cooling loop tutorial!

Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR Review
High-end performance in a sleek 17in chassis. There doesn't seem to be much call for 17in laptops these days, and the trend toward smaller devices shouldn't come as a surprise. Given the high levels of performance on offer from 13-to-15in systems, who wants to be lugging around a larger and heavier PC?

But here's the thing, today's 17in portables aren't anywhere near as unwieldy as the desktop replacements of yesteryear. Take, for example, the new Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR, which despite incorporating a 17.3in 4K HDR display, measures 396mm x 270mm x 21.4mm and tips the scales at a not-unreasonable 2.5kg.

Google Stadia promises low lag with negative latency
Not every game requires split-second, frame-perfect response time. The games that do, however, make a good case against cloud-based gaming. Google wants to change all that with Google Stadia and something it’s calling “negative latency.”

Talking to Edge, Stadia’s VP of Engineering Madj Bakar said that Stadia will be more responsive than in-home gaming solutions.

MSI Vigor GK30 Gaming Combo Review
Keyboard and mouse gaming combos are aimed towards saving money to provide exceptional performance for new computer users or for people on tight budgets. The MSI Vigor GK30 is exactly that as it offers several features only on the more expensive products. This combo includes RGB illumination, mechanical-like plunger switches on the Vigor GK30 keyboard, and an accurate 5000 DPI PWM-3325 optical sensor with the Clutch GM11 mouse. The mechanical-like plunger switches on the GK30 keyboard uses a 3-part construction design, which gives it a rating of over 12 million clicks. This design also gives the keyboard a water-resistant feature. The GM11 mouse uses Omron switches, which are rated for 10 million clicks. Both mouse and keyboard connect to a computer via a standard USB 2.0 port on a rubberized cable.

Priced at $62.99 shipped on Amazon, we will test the Vigor GK30 combo and see how well it performs for a keyboard and mouse combo in this price category.

SilverStone Strider Platinum ST1200-PTS 1200W PSU Review
Today we are taking a look at a special PSU from SilverStone, the ST1200-PTS. The latest addition to the Strider series appears like a typical 80Plus Platinum 1200W PSU on paper, yet its only 140 mm deep, making it a truly unique product as the only ATX-compliant 1200W PSU on the market.

Thermaltake Toughram RGB DDR4 Review
The DDR4 market is fiercely competitive, with quite a few well-established names providing some truly fantastic modules already. However, I can’t help but be impressed that Thermaltake is taking the brave steps to get stuck into this sector. They may be new to memory, but it’s not like they don’t know the PC market, and we’ve already seen one impressive memory kit from Thermaltake.

There’s no beating around the bush with this kit though. It promises big performance, class-leading aesthetics, build quality and more. It features fantastic quality components, and carefully screened IC’s, all housed with high-quality aluminium heatspreaders. On top of that (literally), you’ll find three banks of fully addressable RGB lights.
