Adapted server tech to desktop market

Roman “der8auer” Hartung is always good for a surprise. Currently working for German distributor, online shop and system integrator Caseking, Roman has come up with an eye-catching build for this year’s Gamescom. Using 3M’s Novec 7100 fluid he was able to come up with a build a two-phase immersion cooling project regarding a high-end desktop PC.


Kattstrumpa

Today we have another build from Kattstrumpa for you. In the past we’ve shared several of his builds and as you might know they always look exceptionally good. Like every day we're showing you a very nice build or from one of our modder friends. As always we will show you the nicest pictures of the build and if possible also the specifications here in the news and the full album with all pictures can be found in our Case Mod Gallery.



Thanks to new feet

It’s almost refreshing to see a vendor/manufacturer not advertising a product as “made for gamers”, “optimized for gaming”, or “whichever marketing slogan can be made up ending with gaming”. Cherry nicely steps out of line simply mentioning what they’ve actually changed on their MX Board 5.0.


Models from ASUS, ASRock and more

Current rumor has it that Intel is going to launch their Coffee Lake processors somewhen in October. At this point in time Intel will finally bring their first six core twelve thread processors to the mainstream market. Since chipzilla is rushing these chips to market now the motherboard vendors have to respond coming up with new lineups since these processors will require a new chipset.


What happens in case of massive undersupply

The launch reviews of AMD’s Radeon RX Vega 64 and 56 have shown that at suggested retail prices of $499 US and $399 US, respectively, those cards do feature a decent price/performance level. The only problem so far: the cards don’t sell at these prices - yet. Instead they are massively more expensive.

Improved on all corners

Already the predecessor of this updated Void Pro RGB Wireless headset was a nice peripheral to used at work or at home for gaming but it wasn’t perfect and had it’s little problems. There was for instance the microphone on the now older model, which could have been a bit better, but other than that it’s been a pretty solid headset. Therefore we’re rather curious to find out what it is that Corsair actually reworked.


It’s been a long time

Back in 2005 Microsoft published the last Age of Empires title, which, already back then, was developed by Relic Entertainment. The franchise has always been one of the strategy games out there and it’s great to hear that a proper successor is now under development.


At Gamescom

Since Gamescom is taking place now in Cologne Germany, it was to be expected that one or the other publisher is going to announce new AAA titles. In this particular case Ubisoft jumped the gun revealing more information on their upcoming ANNO 1800.


Oculus rift reduced in price as well

So far experiencing VR is still a rather costly venture. First of all a capable gaming PC is required and secondly you need the VR gear to actually enjoy it. Therefore, after already having spent 2000 to 2500 Euro/USD on a gaming machine the investment of another 899 Euro was necessary for HTC’s Vive VR headset.


We’re very much looking forward

During a video broadcast Intel placed some very subtle hints as to when the the six core and twelve thread Coffee Lake are due for release. On a picture we can see a coffee cup with “10 2017” printed on it which most likely implies the month when it’s time for a “coffee break”.


Sounds like a juicy deal with potential

Corsair has announced that from now on they’re the exclusive supplier of memory in the case of Lenovo’s upcoming gaming PCs. The first Lenovo gaming PC that is going to be equipped with Corsair memory will be the Legion Y920. Becoming partner of Lenovo on such a level is certainly a volume deal.

Added support and issues fixed

AMD today released the latest update to their Radeon GPU drivers, the Crimson ReLive Edition 17.8.1. This is the first driver supporting Vega 56 and 64 that comes with a WHQL signature. As usual these drivers are supposed to help increase performance and efficiency of AMD cards.


Cryptocurrency mining is having a weird effect

Over the past 15 years that I’ve been running ocaholic I’ve come across quite a few weird products but a board with 20 - I repeat twenty - expansion slots that is definitely very high up on that list, if not at the very top. Well what to say but that’s exactly what ASUS has come up with.


Breathtaking - once again

I have to admit, I am a fan of the - soon to be - Project Cars franchise. Therefore it doesn’t come as a surprise that we usually cover new announcements on this game. Bandai Namoco has released their first Gamescom trailer on Project Cars 2, showing off the immense level of detail this title has to offer at UHD resolution.


New, meets new

Raven Ridge is the codename of AMD’s upcoming APUs, which are supposed to combine a “Zen” CCX unit and up to 12 “Vega” NGCUs, which together offer 768 stream processors. This information leaked due to OpenCL tables and they also “confirm” that all Raven Ridge APUs will feature Vega-based CUs.


Coffee for the win

Intel might soon be officially introducing their Coffee Lake chips but for the time being we have to still do with what information we can find out there in the web. Since there are plenty of leaks making it through on a rather regular basis that is actually not the hardest of tasks to accomplish. Meanwhile information on upcoming mobile - U-series - parts has made it through and which we’re about to share with you here.


Including factory OC

It appears that ASUS is soon going to launch make their STRIX version Radeon RX Vega series graphics cards available world wide. For the beginning the company will launch a ROG-STRIX-RXVEGA64-O8G-GAMING model. The most important part in the model number is the acronym “O8G”, where the “O” stands for overclocked.
