The Radeon RX 550 replaces AMD’s lowest-end add-in cards. It's about time, too, since the previous models were based on 2013-era GPUs.

AMD Ryzen 5 1600X Overclocked Benchmark Results At 4.1GHz
A recent trip to the local Micro Center location in St. Louis, Missouri showed that all the AMD Ryzen 5 6-core processors were sold out and rightly so as the Ryzen 5 1600X and Ryzen 5 1600 are both exceptional values. The AMD Ryzen 5 1600X is the flagship processor of the Ryzen 5 series and boasts 6-cores and 12-threads of processing goodness at over 4GHz clock speeds for just $249.99. AMD released the first quad-core processor (Phenom II X4) in January 2009, so many enthusiasts are ready to add more cores to their system here in 2017. No wonder they are sold out locally!

be quiet! Pure Base 600
The be quiet! Pure Base 600 is aimed at the purists out there. There are no colored elements or a front door, just a clean and understated design. However, do not let that fool you as the chassis offers excellent liquid-cooling capability and a great amount of storage flexibility, all while being quiet, especially thanks to the built-in fan controller.

Cryorig C7 Low-Profile Cooler Review
Following on from the success of the Cryorig H7 and R1 Ultimate coolers, today we are looking at a different beast entirely – the low-profile C7. Designed to fit in the tightest of spaces, the C7 has a total height of just 47mm, and this makes it ideal for use in SFF cases.

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 Review
We check out the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 iCX 8G, and heck yeah this is not your regular one. Meet the all custom, cooled and tweaked EVGA "For-The-Win2" Edition. This SKU is a more premium version that comes with some new features, e.g. read sensors everywhere. We'll heck out the 8 GB product fitted with a nice and impressive two slot cooler, some extra LED functionality and a product that comes with some sexy out of the box clock frequencies.

Scythe Byakko CPU Cooler Review
Today we have a new air CPU cooler on the test bench today.  It comes from Scythe who we know for some pretty impressive CPU coolers in the past.  The cooler is the Byakko, which means "White Tiger" in Japanese.  The Byakko is designed for ultimate compatibility in all systems as it has a height of only 130 mm.  It is your typical tower cooler with three 6 mm heatpipes and a 92 mm fan.  The cooler supports all major sockets from Intel and AMD, but does lack support for Intel's LGA2011 socket.  This is likely because this cooler is not really designed to cool HEDT processors.  Could this be a good replacement for your stock CPU cooler?  Read on as we find out!

XFX Radeon RX 580 8GB GTS Black Edition Review
What surprised me most about this card when I was overclocking was that I was not able to get it above a 1440MHz clock speed no matter what I tried. This is 88MHz less than I was able to push out of the PowercColor card I just looked at last week. Kind of a downer after those lofty results, but not every GPU or CPU is going to deliver stunning OC results. That does not mean another card will overclock better or worse. It just means this card was not the best overclocker. Temperatures were not a limiting factor while overclocking this card, with a maximum temperature of 57 °C while overclocked, putting it just three degrees warmer than the RX 480 GTR. The four massive copper composite heat pipes that carry the thermal load to the large fin array in XFX's Quad Com heat sink package coupled with the 100mm Supercell fans really do work to keep the silicon, memory, and digital VRM cool. If anything should go wrong with the card, XFX has you covered for three years with its limited warranty. Just in case.
