BenQ HT3550 Projector Review
When BenQ decided to send us their brand new HT3550 (known as the W2700 in the EU) 4K HDR projector for review, we weren’t expecting a lot of improvement over its predecessor, the HT2550. Then we learned that the HT3550 not only has a more powerful throw ratio but contains a dynamic iris at the same price point and we couldn’t wait to get our hands on it. Fast forward a few months and lots of testing later, we realized that we couldn’t have been more wrong – the HT3550 is nothing like its predecessor. It is the ultimate home theater projector for the mainstream buyer and this is our review of this incredible product from BenQ.

CompuLab Airtop 3 Review
The past month and a half we have been putting CompuLab's Airtop 3 computer through some demanding benchmarks and a variety of endurance workloads. With the Airtop 3 under test loaded with an 8-core / 16-thread Xeon processor, NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 graphics, and 64GB of RAM with NVMe SSD storage there were some concerns over thermal throttling and if this fan-less industrial PC design could really deal with the generated heat. But after all of this testing, the Airtop 3 continues running strong and another shining example of CompuLab's engineering strength

Corsair Carbide Series 678C Case Review
Silent cases are nothing new. We’ve seen them for years and they are great, but they really aren’t much to look at. Well, Corsair has a new silent case in their Carbide 678C which tries to bring with it style and a nice large tempered glass window, while still offering sound-dampening features. This case definitely takes cues from Fractal Design’s Define Series, which is not a bad thing. While those cases are great there is always room for improvements on any product. The Carbide Series 678C is a larger mid tower case that has room inside for 9 hard drives, lots of watercooling, has a very large tempered glass removable side panel, three included 140 mm fans, and much more.

Corsair RM750 750 W Review
The Corsair RM750 only costs slightly less than the RM750x, and the latter comes with the topnotch NR135L fan and Japanese caps. That said, the RM750 has jaw-dropping efficiency at very light and light loads and is compatible with the new Modern Standby mode in Windows 10, meaning it can wake up the system within five seconds.

Gears 5 Review
There were moments of quiet and contemplation in Gears 5 that made evaluate how very different this game is to what I expected. Peacefully driving a skiff along an icy plane, surrounded by mountains and glaciers, leaving a thick imprint in the snow behind me.

GreedFall Review
Paris-based studio Spiders (acquired a couple of months ago by French publisher Bigben Interactive) is an interesting example of perfecting expertise through hard, steady work. Ever since their foundation in 2008, they have focused solely on the development of roleplaying games.

NBA 2K20 Review
The NBA 2K series has continued to dominate when it comes to buzzer-to-buzzer action, but recent entries haven’t quite lived up to their full potential off the court. Sure, loyal round ball fans have continued to plunk their cash down in record numbers, but not without a fair amount of grumbling from some corners.

NZXT H710 BR Mid-Tower PC Case Review
Ive been a big fan of the NZXT case range for many years now. Ive certainly owned a few over the years too. I had the NZXT Hush way back in the day, and a few Phantoms, and these days I have an H500i; although I have had a few other brands in between too.

Parallels 15 Review: Key refinements for DirectX 11 and Catalina lead the way for Windows virtualization on macOS
When Parallels 15 was released a few weeks ago, I realized that there are two types of people when it comes to virtualization software: those that care deeply and those that cannot fathom why people still run Windows/Linux on top of macOS. The more people I talk to about this, the more I realize that the market might have been broader for running Windows on macOS back during the initial Intel transition, but that today, the market is more in-depth. The people who use this software rely on it for essential tasks related to their jobs and or hobbies. The good thing for them is that Parallels 15 continues to go deeper with Windows integration on macOS. What’s the verdict on Parallels 15? After using it for a few weeks, let’s dive into my Parallels 15 review.

SilverStone PS14-E Case Review
The box in which the casingis received is a standard brown cardboard box. There are illustrations, features and specifications printed on the outside. Inside the box we find the casing wrapped well in a plastic bag and flamingo.

Inside the casing we find a bag of various screws, strips, warranty description and a holder for graphics cards. I show it some more down in the assembly section.

Updated AMD AGESA 1.0.0.3ABBA EFIs Begin Popping Up
Last week, AMD let people know that it’d soon be releasing a new AGESA platform update to improve clock boost issues that have been plaguing some (or most) users. AMD said it’d be releasing more information on September 10, but it seems like one vendor has decided to jump the gun a little bit and get its EFIs out to the public for some immediate testing.

We noticed this first at reddit, with an r/amd thread that linked to Chinese tech site Chiphell, where plenty of EFIs for MSI boards can be found at popular overclocker Coolaler’s website. So far, we’ve been unable to find these EFIs through official channels.

XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT Ultra THICC II Review
The XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT Ultra THICC II is one of the highest clocked Navi custom designs out there. It is cooled by a large triple-slot, dual-fan thermal solution that runs quieter than the AMD reference card and includes idle-fan-stop. With $440, pricing isn't unreasonable either.

Zadak Spark RGB DDR4-4133 Memory Review
Well we have a treat for everyone today. We get to feature a product from a company many of you may not be familiar with: ZADAK! Hit the link and go check what they have to offer. Their product line is small but everything I have browsed through seems to be impressive and if they stand behind their story then I don’t doubt that one bit. Today we will showing you guys their Spark DDR4-4133 RAM! First off WOW that’s top of the line speed, so I am excited to test these! We don’t need a history but RAM at those speeds are meant for one thing and one thing only “GO FAST”. As we know some games that are GPU intensive may not see the benefit of RAM at these speeds but games and programs that rely more on the CPU will definitely see a performance boost. You can assume when you upgrade RAM, say from a 3000MHz speed to a 4133MHz, you can expect a gain in performance of about roughly 10-15% easy. Is it always necessary for these speeds? No, but if the price is right why would you pass it up. Well lets get to it and see what we have on our hands with the ZADAK Spark RGB RAM. Big thanks goes out to ZADAK for sending us these to show you!
