EVGA GTX 1080 FTW2 Gaming iCX Video Card Review

EVGA has been on the forefront of GPU technology since it came on the scene back in 1999. Fast forward numerous years and accolades later, we come to another turning point, a deeper integration of the GPU with their new iCX Technology. This new integration will help keep cards cool where it needs to be cooled allowing for better control of thermals and fan noise. The first implementation of this technology comes in the form of the EVGA GTX 1080 FTW2 Gaming iCX sporting the new iCX cooler, an evolution of their formidable ACX cooling solution. Read More

MSI Z270 XPower Gaming Titanium Motherboard Review

Our next Z270 based board we will review is from MSI and is their current flagship board in the MSI Z270 XPower Gaming Titanium. If you remember our review of the Z170 version from way back in 2015, they managed to merge both a quality gaming motherboard, and a very solid overclocking motherboard into one pretty cool Titanium/Silver motherboard. While not much has changed going from Z170 to Z270, we’ll look at some of the features on the board, and make sure it still performs with the rest of them. Grab a soda, sit back, and enjoy!

Intel i7-7700K Kaby Lake CPU Review

It seems like only yesterday we were reviewing the Skylake CPU, but it turns out that was nearly 17 months ago! Back then, Skylake was the “tock” of Intel’s “tick-tock” release strategy, but recent times has seen them add a phase to this, almost a tick, tock, and refine. Since we have seen the tock, we now expect even further refinement. Queue the 7th generation of Intel CPUs, dubbed, Kaby Lake (pronounced KAY-BEE). Read More

MSI GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G Video Card Review

Today we get a chance to look at one of MSI’s newest cards in their Pascal lineup in the GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G video card. This GPU isn’t different at all under the hood when comparing it to the MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X 8G we reviewed as far as the upgraded PCB, power phases, and Twin Frozr VI cooler. It’s more of an aesthetic change and to add another option to their Gaming lineup that isn’t in their established red and black color scheme. The Quick Silver version, as you may have guessed, comes in with a black and silver look which matches their latest MPower and XPower Titanium boards really well. Being it is silver and has LEDs, it can fit in with a lot more themes than the regular Gaming X would. We know the looks are different, so let’s get to looking at what else is may be different and see how it passed our testing! Read More
