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.



Praetex Design

Today we have another build from Praetex Design 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.

For RAID card

If these days you want to buy a fast SSD you’re most likely going to choose a drive with M.2 form factor. Those drives are really fast but unfortunately some of them also struggle with overheating issues. A few months ago, Alphacool introduced its M.2 heatsinks which are supposed to help keeping the temperatures of your M.2 SSD low. Meanwhile they’ve added yet another cooler to their lineup, which goes by the name Eisblock HDX-5.


For Aorus Gaming series and UD4

Following the launch of Intel’s socket X299, EKWB has released a new monoblock for five Gigabyte motherboards: the X299 Aorus Gaming 3, the X299 Aorus Gaming 7, the X299 Aorus Gaming 9, the X299 Aorus Ultra Gaming and the X299 UD4. This is the first X299 monoblock available and it will apparently add water cooling to both the CPU and the VRM, thanks to a huge single water block. The EK-FB GA X299 Gaming RGB Monoblock is compatible with Gigabyte’s RGB Fusion, which will allow you to create neat looking setups thanks to customizable lighting.


New leak from ChipHell

The number of rumors regarding Coffee Lake that are making it through these days is quite impressive. It’s not been long ago that we’ve last written about alleged clock speeds of Intel’s upcoming 6-core mainstream processors but already today there is new information on the entire upcoming lineup.


Meshify C, Define C TG, Celsius S24

Today we can announce another contest with juicy prices thanks to Fractal Design. The winner will be drawn randomly from the comments here as well as on Facebook. Apart from that likes and shares would make us happy.





Soon another record?

A few days ago, Intel has released a new series of HEDT processors. Meanwhile K|ngp|n is testing the new flagship Intel Core i9-7960X on 3DMark Vantage. Thanks to a rather substantial overclock on the CPU as well as very nicely overclocked memory he’s been able to hit more than 126K points regarding the CPU score. We wouldn’t be surprised if rather sooner than later a new record would be incoming from the master of 3DMark benchmarks himself.

Slightly smaller than the predecessor

Samsung has introduced the next iteration of their portable SSDs. The new Samsung Portable SSD T5 drives features the latest 64-layer V-NAND flash memory and the company claims to provide "industry-leading transfer speeds with encrypted data security". The transfers speeds are supposed to reach up to 540MB/s and the drives connects to your computer via a USB Type-C interface.


Aluminum and tempered glass

Meanwhile Lian Li has a few dual-chambered cases in its portfolio and it looks like the vendor is slowly completing the lineup adding a miniITX model. The upcoming PC-Q39, is basically a scaled down version of the PC-O11 which received a front plate, that’s been made from aluminum entirely instead of tempered glass partially.


240Hz, 1ms and G-SYNC

AOC already has a vast portfolio of displays and with the AG251FG the vendor is launching yet another fullHD model. The 24.5-inch panel supports 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution at 240Hz refresh rate, which makes this display relevant for playing fast first person shooters. In addition, AOC will show several monitors during the upcoming Gamescom 2017.


10nm Ice Lake

It’s been a few years that Intel thoroughly presented a roadmap, showing what’s to come when in the foreseeable future. On of the most interesting points on the agenda is certainly Ice Lake, which is supposed to follow the 8th generation Intel Core processor family. Intel notes that the processors are "a" successor to the eighth-gen, not "the" main successor, which leaves a lot of room for speculation.
