    AMD R5 1600 refresh (12nm)

    Yeah, I did see some talk about issues, but that particular kit is listed on Corsairs own Ryzen Compatibility page. There was another Vengeance kit with pretty much the same specs or maybe it was CL16 (model number had like one letter difference), it was just few euros cheaper, but I went ahead...

    AMD R5 1600 refresh (12nm)

    Hi. Almost 8 years since the last post. I think it's time to upgrade :D This may be a bit offtopic but here goes. A few weeks ago I stumbled upon a nice deal of some Powercolor RX 590 Red Dragon, it was going for 179€ (now 50€ higher). Just thought that well I've been holding on for upgrades...

    Editorial Why the Litecoin Craze Hurts More Than Helps Brand AMD Radeon

    When I was looking at the 7990 (Powercolor and AMD versions) last september/october from German eBay, I found them at about 450-700€. Cheapest were the Powercolor version. A few months ago I saw a lot of 7990's in German eBay in the price range of 800-2500€. At the moment, I can only find 8...

    Mad Catz Ships S.T.R.I.K.E.3 Professional Gaming Keyboard for Windows PC

    This brought an idea of the past. First times I ever played FPS's with a mouse, I used the normal arrows for movement, right ctrl for crouch, ins for jump and so on... enter was reload, for example. Now that I think of it, it should be more ergonomic than the usual WASD style... But, the lack...

    Editorial Windows 8.1, and Why You Should Let Go of Windows 7

    XP still has better start menu than Vista or 7. 8 looks and feels like an oddity altogether for one that has used 3.1, 95, 98, XP and 7.

    Futuremark Posts New 3DMark "Cloud Gate" Game Test Screenshots

    ^ I liked the 03 and 06 the most. Vantage and 3DMark11 were not that entertaining to watch through... Looking at the 11, its just blurry moving images. Vantage (as I remember it) looked very meh (and was talked a lot too around the net).
