With $10,000 US cash prize for the champion

G.SKILL has announced its 4th annual OC World Cup overclocking competition which attracts some of the biggest names in the overclocking community, not only due to the US $10,000 cash prize for the champion. This time also our Italian overclocking team member Franco “RULE” Valtulina will be there as well.

Sounds reassuring

According to latest rumors the yields manufacturing AMD Ryzen processors is reaching strong values and therefore good quality. As we already know, Ryzen is manufactured using the 14nm FinFet process. This technology has been used and refined for over a year now.

Quite an impressive thing

It looks like Lenovo is going to sell a new high-end gaming notebook. The company has just launched the so called Legion Y920 Gaming Notebook, which comes with a 17.3-inch, Full HD screen with IPS panel and NVIDIA G-Sync technology. Apart from that the rest of the specs are pretty interesting as well.

Thanks to microcode update

ASUS has released a new beta BIOS which includes an AGESA Microcode update improving memory compatibility on their Crosshair VI Hero. According to ASUS, the updated microcode should enhance memory compatibility in combination with high clocking memory, adding support for 3466MHz, 3600MHz, 3733MHz, 3866MHz and 4000MHz memory multipliers without the need of BCLK overclocking.

Modder CROW

Today we have another build from Modder CROW for you. In the past we’ve shared several of his builds and as you might know they always look exceptionally good. Since we don't know what there is under the hood you will not find any specification.

But just a soft-launch

During AMD's official Vega AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit, Raja Koduri has confirmed that RX Vega will be showcased at Computex. AMD has also confirmed that RX Vega will not be hitting the shelves during Computex time frame with the gaming oriented RX Vega still not having an official launch date.

A slight upgrade for the high-end ASUS AM4 model

The ROG Crosshair VI Hero from ASUS has received a little upgrade regarding wireless LAN. This new model packs 2×2 dual-band 2.4/5GHz antennas with the latest MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multi-in, Multi-Out) feature. This little upgrade makes the board much more versatile.

Game optimizations

Following the launch of AMD’s ReLive 17.5.1 drivers there is already another update available. This release offers a 4.5% performance improvement in Prey with in combination with the Radeon RX 580. On top of that AMD has also fixed some issues related to Forza Horizon 3 and NieR Automata.

Hard to classify

Lian Li
A few months ago Lian Li launched the PC-O11, which is a cube-shaped dual-chamber case like the PC-O8 that's been around for quite a while already. Like the previous models, also the new PC-O12WX comes with an elegant design and the left side panel as well as the front panel are made from tempered glass.

Based on ATX form factor

The ASUS ROG X370-F Strix Gaming is another AMD AM4 motherboard that should help filling gaps in the ASUS AM4 lineup. So far there are only three X370 motherboards from ASUS, which are the Prime X370-Pro, the ROG Crosshair VI Hero and the ROG Crosshair VI Hero AC. Compared to the ROG Crosshair VI Hero, the ROG X370-F Strix Gaming should be cheaper yet still pack quite a few features.

Featuring 3440x1440 resolution with 1800R curvature

A few weeks ago, Acer has expanded its monitor lineup with another ultra wide model, featuring a 35-inch VA panel with 3440 x 1440 resolution. The grey-to-grey response time is set to 4ms and the refresh rate is up to 120Hz. Apart from that this monitor supports G-Sync.

Upcoming MSI X299 Gaming Pro Carbon?

On their official Facebook page, MSI has shown another preview regarding their upcoming Intel X299 motherboard. So far this is the third teaser showing yet another area of another Intel X299 motherboard. Like the previous model the new one features a completely black color scheme with several RGB LEDs.

Ken Chaves

Today we have another build from Ken Chaves for you. In the past we’ve shared several of his builds and as you might know they always look exceptionally good. Since we don't know what there is under the hood you will not find any specification.

Sounds too good to be true, right?

It looks like we’re closing in on what appears to be another launch of an Intel CPU lineup. Otherwise there is no way explaining why there are this many leaks surfacing regarding unreleased products. Some forum user from Dutch website Hardware.info has apparently had his hands on an upcoming Intel Core i9 7900X (10 core) as well as an Intel core i9 7920X (12 core).

With 240mm, 280mm and 360mm radiators

EK Water Blocks
EK Water Blocks has put together three new water cooling kits, which they’re marketing as gaming products. The main difference between the kits is the size of the radiator and in the end the price.

Together with TSMC and Globalfoundries

Judging by slides AMD’s CEO, Lisa Su, presented during their 2017 Financial Analyst Day, the company has aggressive plans advancing to 7nm manufacturing process technology. In this context it’s interesting to see that consumer and server CPUs as well as the graphics parts are to adopt the new process within the same time frame.

Targeting professionals

BenQ has been working on a new display for professionals. The PD2710QC has already been announced back in January and it looks like this display is finally becoming available. What sets this monitor apart from others is the USB-C docking station that’s been integrated into the stand.

Ready for GT 1030

Following the launch of NVIDIA’s new entry-level GPU GT 1030 the vendor releases the 382.23 WHQL driver, officially adding support for this little new card.

That was kind of expected

As we reported yesterday AMD is going to launch their first Vega based cards by the end of June for professional customers and the gaming are cards are to follow in the third quarter - hopefully. What’s not been covered so far is, that it looks like AMD is going to launch a water cooled version of their Vega cards for professionals.

Twister Mod

Today we can show you another build from Twister Mod. In the past we’ve shared several of his projects and as you might know they always look exceptionally good.
