Dream Machines DM5 Blink Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2019-11-12 read/post comments(0)

Since this model is using the same PixArt 3389 sensor and Huano switches for the left/right buttons with an endurance of 20 million clicks as with the DM1 FPS, we have had similar experience when gaming in RAGE 2, Dead Space 3 and Diablo 3. The reliable sensor can track optimally without additional acceleration while the mouse weight along with the shoelace cable do complete the experience. An interesting addition is the hardware button for turning off the lighting completely in just a few seconds, while the Basilisk-like DM Shot button is easy reachable for actions that need to be performed quickly, such as Sniper. read more

Patriot Memory Viper VPN100 PCIe M.2 SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2019-11-10 read/post comments()

The VPN100 NVMe drive from Patriot offers good overall performance, the numbers fluctuating depending how much the drive is filled and how much SLC cache is left from the TLC packages. In ATTO we got quite close to the rated speeds, with the drive blank but also filled over 50% with data, while the included heatsink keeps the overall assembly temperatures at bay, in order to avoid throttling or shorten the product life. Speaking of the drive endurance, the 1TB model comes with 1665 TBW, and also comes with a 3-year warranty! read more

XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB GDDR6 Ultra THICC III Video Card Review

Videocards/VGA Reviews by stefan @ 2019-11-07 read/post comments(0)

XFX did listen to user feedback and watched closely the competition after the release of the THICC II card and the end result is quite amazing: we are getting a well designed package that features the same attractive shroud elements, three new fans that are able to spin under 500RPM under low GPU load but also a revised heatsink. The new heatsink comes with a copper interposer for the memory that helps drop temperatures considerably, while keeping the whole package TGP at values of over 260W. Besides the high-quality fans, the card BIOS has been tuned for low RPMs under load so the THICC III won’t really bother you in terms of acoustics while playing the latest games. read more

CORSAIR HS60 PRO SURROUND Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2019-11-05 read/post comments(0)

After going through the simple iCUE setup, we started listening to multiple podcasts, YouTube music clips, watched an action movie but also played quite a bit of Need for Speed 2015: thanks to the 50mm neodymium drivers, the sound quality is great, while the bass does not seem to distort even at higher volume levels. We really enjoyed how the engines were sounding in NFS and if you do enable the Bass Boost profile the immersion is even better. After wearing the headset for over one hour, we have seen the benefits of the increased comfort over the regular HS60, so this is not only marketing talk. read more

ASRock X570 Taichi AM4 Motherboard Review

Motherboards/AMD AM4 by stefan @ 2019-11-01 read/post comments(0)

The X570 Taichi AM4 motherboard from ASRock does incorporate the latest technologies and thanks to the latest AGESA microcode updates it does allow the Ryzen 3000 series to run at optimal boost speeds. While we consider that the latest AMD processors do run optimally at stock settings (by boosting depending on the usage conditions, which can be also named as automatic overclocking), enthusiasts can also use the UEFI settings for improving the system performance even more. read more

Creative Pebble V2 Minimalistic 2.0 USB Speakers Review

Audio/Speakers&Amps by stefan @ 2019-10-27 read/post comments(0)

We did test the speaker on both our desktop PC but also on our 50’’ Sony TV, since it does not require any extra software to get it running; the mids and highs are very well rendered thanks to the tiny 2.0 drivers and the passive radiator but do not expect punchy bass as found with more mainstream and high-end offerings. The volume is easy to control thanks to the interface on the right satellite but you can as well control it from the sound source as well (while leaving the control wheel in a fixed position). The black textured color does make the product fit with quite a few setups (even in the living room), while the small size… read more
