Acer Predator Z1 Z301CT 30in Curved Gaming Monitor
The super-wide 21:9 aspect isn’t that common in PC monitors, and even less so for gaming. But it’s potentially a very immersive form factor. The Acer Predator Z1 Z301CT presents this aspect with a 30in diagonal, a curved surface, and good helping of features for the serious gamer.

AMD Ryzen 7 1800X AM4 8-Core Processor Review
The day of Ryzen has finally come and while I'm sure many of you have been eagerly awaiting this, we've been even more excited to be some of the first people in the world to get our hands-on the new hardware and see what it can really do. There have been many leaks and lots of speculation hitting the market, and we've seen some cherry picked benchmarks from AMD and other sources floating around, but now it's time to put our best foot forward and see what all the fuss is really about!

Asustor AS6202T NAS Review
In this review we test the Asustor AS6202T NAS. The AS6202T is more powerful in the sense that it comes with a much stronger processor, more memory and a plethora of features. The 2 in that product name means we'll be testing the 2-bay version of this quad-core processor based NAS with 4 GB of internal RAM memory.

DDR4 Memory Scaling on AMD AM4 Platforms For Ryzen
AMD Ryzen processors are here and the number of people buying AMD platforms has spiked as a result. Those that are running out to buy Ryzen 7 series processor will need to also purchase the new AMD AM4 platforms using the B350 or X370 chipset with possibly a dual-channel DDR4 memory kit. Picking out the right memory kit is pretty important, so we are going to look at memory performance on the MSI X370 XPower Gaming Titanium motherboard with an AMD Ryzen 7 1700 8-core processor to see what happens...

Intel 7th Generation Core i3 7350K Processor Review
As a K-SKU processor, the Core i3 7350K is an overclocking enabled and unlocked processor. The expectation is that it should overclock as well as its full core count siblings, such as the Core i7 7700K. And that it does, with a fairly robust 4.9GHz clock speed with about 15 minutes worth of performance tuning. Depending on the motherboard you put this little gem in (it has to support overclocking), you should see a boost in performance across the board, which I did in each and every test. When pushed to the limit, the thermals never got out of hand, even when I was pushing the vcore up to 1.45v. Using an AIO liquid cooler helps tremendously in this aspect, but you could reach the 4.9GHz clock speed I was able to reach with a solid air cooler from Noctua or Phanteks. Priced at $169 after Intel's latest price drops, the Core i3 7350K has higher out of the box clock speeds than most of the next level up quad-core non-HT processors, such as the Core i5 7600. This should bridge the performance gap to some extent and allow the end user to still stay on budget by saving up to $70. When the first K-SKU dual-core chips were announced in 2009, it's interesting to see that trend of delivering overclocking enabled budget products for all users is still in vogue. If you are a bit budget strapped, the Core i3 7350K offers decent performance for your dollar.

MSI X370 XPower Gaming Titanium
Beyond the exciting new CPU and the nice wooden box that came with our Ryzen review kit, down in the bottom I found an awesome looking motherboard to test with. AMD and MSI had slipped us an X370 XPower Gaming Titanium along with the rest of the kit. While I’ve taken a look at a lot of MSIs boards, I haven’t had the chance to check out any of their Titanium boards and it is an area where I think MSI has really been showing some creativity, so I’m excited to take a closer look at the new board and find out if the Titanium has the features to back up its good looks.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Unboxed, Installed And Ready To Rock
If there's one thing that gets the average self-respecting Tech geek jazzed, it's the smell of fresh, new PC gaming hardware in the morning. As such, along with your morning dose of caffeinated something-or-other, we're here to unbox the all new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

If you recall, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is NVIDIA's new flagship GPU for hardcore gamers that actually sports slightly more gaming horsepower than the mighty Titan X (minus a smallish 1GB of GDDR5X memory), but sells for almost half the price at $699...

NZXT Kraken X62 Liquid CPU Cooler Review
In case you missed it, we recently checked out and reviewed the Kraken X52 AiO water cooling system.   Not only does it have a super unique pump casing which features a sweet RGB LED infinity mirror on the top, but the performance was top level as well.  As with most companies, NZXT of course offers the same cooler in several different sizes.  In the lab today we’ve got the top dog on the block, the X62.  The X62 features the same awesome pump and boosts performance up a notch by adding a larger 280mm radiator.  Follow along as we find out if this next step is worth the upgrade and worth your extra cash.

Show Home 2-Channel Z-Wave Smart Home Plug Review
The Show Home 2-Channel Z-Wave smart home plug is a great option for those looking to include some Z-wave controllable outlets in their home. This one stands out compared to many options on the market since it does not require the replacement of an existing in-wall outlet and it provides you with two independently controllable outlets in one device. You could therefore install it in a permanent location in your home, but you could also move it around as required.
