    ASUS Outs ROG Strix XG27WQ: 27-inch 1440p Fast Curved Monitor

    unlike almost all other RGB, the backside of monitors is an excellent idea. It can provide backlight for the "office"(gaming) environment you are in, similar to Philips ambilight. Its actually extremely nice to have and provide a very nice addition.

    Asetek Unveils the 690LX-PN AIO Cooler for Intel Xeon W-3175X at $399

    Probably wont, however the patent only affects designs that put the pump in the same house as the cold plate - you could argue that both in case of visual design and thermal ditto, its the wrong place. I would 10x rather have a clean area around the cpu socket with just the coldplate and have...

    ASUS Clears the Air on Missing Fan Connect Case-Fan Headers on GeForce RTX 2080 Ti STRIX

    nope, syncing a case fan with the gpu fans makes a lot of sense. for example one front intale front fan and one intale bottom or one intake and one output fan synced with the GPU header. Due to fan-stop technology neither will run of the gpu is idle ensuring you can run your more silently if ie...

    Good 280mm radiator AiO?

    i would opt for the H115i instead - no cam software and based on the same asetek product.

    Intel Confirms Soldered IHS for 9th Gen Core Series

    Im sorry but... Intel confirms... would suggest that these are official slides from intel - they are not. There is no need to sensationalize the topics TPU. If i wanted that i could just go directly to videocardz. "Leaked slides from Intel confirms soldered TIM on 9th gen unlocked...

    BIOSTAR Announces iMiner Series Turnkey Mining Solutions

    Why would they? notice the 3x 120mm high performance fans right infront of the cards? This machine is ment to be run in a rack with absolutely no regard to noise, so they are probably several thousand RPM beasts

    Corsair Developing Gaming Monitors

    rgb monitor actually makes sense since it allows you to select your own ambient light - but it should obviously only be on the back and quite bright

    Corsair Developing Gaming Monitors

    well that is both good and bad. If they get a good OEM, then its good. Because they will be able to integrate lighting (mark my words it will have RGB on the back) with other corsair products - which is also good. They all use panels from samsung or AU anyways so who cares about that part. But...

    NVIDIA Turing GPU to Start Mass Production in Q3 2018

    uhm - no, the point of this most likely to use dies that have failed the first QA as fullblown gaming cards but will work just fine as minig cards at lower frequencies. simple PCBs and no licensing for output modules probably mean they can keep a hefty margin of income on the dedicated cards...

    EVGA Intros CLC 120 CL11 Liquid CPU Cooler

    yet another G4/5 asetek unit instead of the new and improved G6. Wonder if corsair has exclusive G6 access for some period of time.

    a dedicated calculator button is kinda silly though, extremely narrow market.

    EK Water Blocks Announces Availability of the EK-MLC Phoenix

    I think you completely miss the point of this product. This is not intended for people that are able to build a custom loop. Its intended for those that want and have the money for a custom loop, but dont have the skills or courage to built it themselves. Quick connects and a prefilled loop...
