Patriot Supersonic Magnum 2 USB 3.1 256GB Flash Drive Review

Following up Dino’s review of the Supersonic Rage 2 is a newer Supersonic flash drive from Patriot. Today we will be looking at the Supersonic Magnum 2, a USB 3.1 Gen 1 flash drive available in either 256GB or 512GB with blazing fast transfer speeds. This review is covering the 256GB flavor. Personally, I think it’s incredible knowing flash drives with this level of specifications exist. Let’s put this thing through the paces and see how it performs! Read More

Mushkin Blackline 16GB DDR4-2400 CL15 Memory Kit Review

Recently we reviewed the Mushkin Redline 16GB DDR4-2800 memory kit. Today, we take a look at another Mushkin memory kit, this time from the Blackline family. This memory series is designed for gamers, one of the more demanding computer users. Even though at first the DDR4-2400 specification doesn’t look like anything special, I am certain we can overclock a bit if the Blackline is anything like the Redline kit we reviewed previously.

Scythe Fuma Heatsink Review

Scythe has released its entry into the world of tandem tower heatsinks: the Fuma. Scythe heatsinks all have Japanese names, and the Fuma is no exception: it means “wind demon” in Japanese. It is powered by two Slip Stream 120 PWM fans. Sounds promising, but unlike the seemingly unending series of 160+ mm towers, the Fuma is less than 150 mm tall. Is this heatsink a wind demon or a mere dust devil? Let’s find out! Read More

Cryorig R1 Ultimate Heatsink Review

Cryorig has an “ultimate” heatsink for us: the Cryorig R1 Ultimate. This heatsink is full of advanced technology, and it uses two 140 x 25 mm fans and tandem fin-stack towers. Ultimate, indeed. But does all of this give us the ultimate in cooling experience? Only one way to find out. We will explore the heck out of this heatsink. Read More

G.SKILL Trident Z 16GB DDR4-3400 CL16 Memory Review

A couple of weeks ago on Overclockers we posted a review of a great performing G.SKILL Trident Z 16GB DDR4-3200 memory. Today we wish to present a higher frequency memory kit from the same G.SKILL series – Trident Z 16GB DDR4-3400 CL16. After such good reviews of DDR4-3200 kit, we have high expectations regarding this faster version of Trident Z. Let’s not make this introduction any longer as I’m sure all wish to see what the Trident Z 16GB DDR4-3400 memory kit has to offer. Read More

ASUS ROG Matrix GTX 980 Ti Platinum Edition Video Card Review

The ASUS ROG Matrix platinum video cards are well known among many enthusiast circles. From the hardcore liquid nitrogen-using, competitive overclocker down to the hardcore gamer that wants some of the fastest clocks and “best of the best” hardware. I remember this line of cards from the HD5870 series on forward being a beast in nearly all aspects of its use. I have a funny feeling that will not change with the latest flagship, the ASUS ROG Matrix GTX 980 Ti Platinum Edition video card, we have for review today. We will talk about some of its unique features, as well as check out its performance. Seat belts on, tray tables in their upright and locked positions…we are a go for launch! Read More

Noctua 24-Volt Fans and Chromax Review

When Noctua announced they had released 24-volt fans, I ignored it, asking, “What does that have to do with me?” I had tried 24-volt fans from other manufacturers with unhappy results. But the Noctua rep told me “They actually run nice and quiet in 12V PC environments!” It was at that point I had to test these fans to see how well they do. Do they really run quietly at 12 volts? And how strong are they? Immediately thereafter, Noctua announced their Chromax line of accessories. From having these two releases coming so close together, this combined review was born. Read More
