How Low Should You Go? ASUS Radeon R7 250X Graphics Card Review

Posted on September 10, 2014 in AMD-Based GPU

After we were done benchmarking AMD’s $110 Radeon R7 260 last winter, we were impressed enough to call it a “console killer” (thanks in part to the ‘next-gen’ consoles having been released not soon before). Will we be able to say the same thing about the R7 250X, a model a mere one-step down? That’s what we’re going to find out.

For Those Who Like Their PCs Naked: Puget Test Bench EATX Version 1 Review

Posted on September 8, 2014 in Full-Tower

Open test benches are not for everyone, but for those who need to deal with their PC’s components often, they could prove to be a boon to efficiency.

SilverStone Tundra TD02 Liquid CPU Cooler

SilverStone Tundra TD02 AIO Liquid CPU Cooler Review

Posted on September 5, 2014 in Water-Cooling

AIO liquid CPU coolers seem to be as common as high-end air coolers nowadays. However, despite this, many of them look nearly the same.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet and Controller

NVIDIA’s SHIELD Tablet is a great piece of kit, but for those who’ve yearned for more internal storage, as well as LTE support, the lone market option up to this point might have seemed a bit lacking.

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv Chassis

The first time that I remember hearing the name Phanteks was when the company released the gigantic Enthoo Primo full tower chassis. Since then there has been the Enthoo Luxe and Enthoo Pro, but today things are going in reverse with the announcement of the Enthoo Evolv.

Acronis True Image 2015

At some point between the release of Acronis’ True Image 2014 and the past month, the company overhauled its corporate image. Not only was its official website given a fresh coat of paint, but its logo was updated, as well. While the double-lined “A” in Acronis’ updated logo does little for me, the overall aesthetic is […]

Microsoft Buys Minecraft

With the incredible success that developer Mojang has seen with Minecraft, it was inevitable that some company would want to snatch it up. If I were asked long ago which company I’d think it’d be, I never would have answered “Microsoft” – yet, here we are. Mojang was so valuable to Microsoft, in fact, that the […]
