Silicon Power 2x16GB DDR4-3200 XPOWER Turbine RGB Memory Kit Review

Memory by stefan @ 2020-02-18 read/post comments(0)

The XPOWER Turbine RGB 32GB kit from Silicon Power does offer wide compatibility for configuration in terms of LED lighting, while the Samsung ICs are carefully selected from the factory, in order to stay stable at the programmed XMP timings. In our case, the kit has performed interestingly well at 3000MHz instead of the rated 3200Mhz, which leaves us suspecting that the pre-programmed timings were more relaxed than the kit was capable of. When testing with the rated CAS timings and leaving the others on Auto, we managed to squeeze more performance out of the kit, but going further was not possible since the system was unable to boot. read more

Razer Nari Ultimate - Overwatch LĂșcio Edition Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2020-02-16 read/post comments(0)

After fully charging the headset, we have fired up several games such as Star Wars: The Old Republic, Overwatch, Bioshock 2, Forza Horizon 4 and Bayonetta; even at default settings, the vibration is quite strong and activates on low frequencies in real time. Even when we have had discussions via Skype, depending on the voice frequency we have felt short vibrations but thanks to the Synapse controls, we could eliminate these by turning the haptic effects to a lower level. Thanks to the thick padding of the cups, the vibration effect remains pleasant even when it is turned all the way up; however, there are times when we would like to turn the haptic effect completely off and this is… read more

XFX AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT 6GB GDDR6 THICC III Ultra Video Card Review

Videocards/VGA Reviews by stefan @ 2020-02-12 read/post comments(0)

With the release of the Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB GDDR6 Ultra THICC III, XFX has refined the cooling system quite a bit and now we do have a card that only occupies two slots, remains cool during maximum load and at the same time the fans remain at very low noise levels. Even though the card runs with the memory at 12Gbps, the used packages are rated at 14Gbps, so we have some overclocking headroom for sure in this regard, while the GPU reaches nearly 1750MHz boost clock in Time Spy Extreme, as the manufacturer intended. XFX and AMD themselves have intended to recommend this card for 1080P resolutions while gaming, but we have seen situations when this card… read more

SteelSeries Rival 3 Wired Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2020-02-09 read/post comments(0)

Due to its low weight and comfortable shape, we have used the mouse without any issues while writing several reviews but also while playing titles such as DOOM, Star Wars: The Old Republic and Bioshock 2. Up to 2560x1440 screen resolution we did not see the need of using higher CPI values than Rival 3 can offer, while the left/right click buttons have a nice feel to it, while being quite silent. Even if we are talking about an entry-level product, we do have the RGB LED lighting system split on three different segments, with different configuration options; SteelSeries does also mention that with this mouse they have used the brightest LEDs to date, measuring around 750 lux. read more

Creative SXFI THEATER 2.4GHz Low Latency Wireless Headphones Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2020-02-05 read/post comments(0)

After creating the profile in the SXFI mobile application, we went ahead and installed SXFI Control for easy upload purposes, while leaving the EQ in neutral position. We did listen to quite a bit of YouTube clips, 1080P and 4K TV Shows/Movies but also played Injustice 2, SWTOR and Resident Evil 2: Creative’s implementation of holographic audio really makes a difference and offers a very nice experience even when only voices are involved. Besides really great virtual 7.1 positioning, we have found that the bass levels do not decrease when enabling Super X-Fi technology as we have seen with other surround sound implementations, which adds even more to the immersion. read more

CORSAIR iCUE H115i RGB PRO XT Liquid CPU Cooler Review

Cooling/CPU Cooling by stefan @ 2020-01-30 read/post comments(0)

The H115i RGB PRO XT AIO offers visible improvements over its predecessor by including an even better pump assembly and while working with the Quiet and Balanced profiles for the fans we have observed lower temperatures on the Ryzen 9 3900X in both IDLE and Full Load; we need to mention that both coolers have had similar fan speeds in this modes, the only big difference being with the Extreme profile (1131RPM vs 1491RPM on the XT). read more
