Intel is bolstering its Core X high-end desktop CPUs with everything in its bag of tricks, including 14-nm++ process technology, higher clock speeds, larger caches, and solder thermal interface material. We put the Core i9-9980XE to the test to see how those refinements add up against AMD's high-end desktop onslaught.

Thermaltake launches the Pacific V-RTX 2080 Plus (ASUS ROG) and Pacific V-RTX 2080Ti Plus (ASUS ROG), especially designed for ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2080 and ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2080Ti Graphic Cards. The new RGB water blocks are the latest additions to the Thermaltake Pacific V-RTX 2080 Plus Series which combine style with functionality. The new water blocks are designed with a software-controllable 16.8 million colors LED strip that allows users to customize the lighting effects through our patented TT RGB PLUS Software via the TT AI Voice Control function and Amazon Alexa Voice Service. The waterblocks can also synchronize with ASUS, GIGABYTE, MSI, and ASRock 5V motherboard RGB software. The 0.5mm internal fin construction and high-flow water block enables the coolant to flow directly over all critical areas, and the CNC machined copper base fully prevents corrosion to achieve unparalleled cooling performance. The Pacific V-RTX 2080 Plus and Pacific V-RTX 2080Ti Plus deliver the ultimate cooling results for gaming, overclocking, and other GPU intense tasks.

Controlled by the patented TT RGB PLUS Software and the app, the built-in LED strip features great light coverage, uniform color and brightness, and 12 addressable LEDs that can paint your build with 16.8 million colors.

Monitor the fan performance, adjust the fan speeds, and customize the lighting effects for Thermaltake Plus RGB liquid cooling products with the patented TT RGB PLUS Software and an exclusively designed mobile app. Choose a function from below and scroll down to read the details.

All Thermaltake TT RGB PLUS products support Amazon Alexa Voice Service, allowing you to control the lights or fan speeds by talking to the Alexa-enabled device. With the support of Amazon Alexa, TT RGB PLUS products also offer an additional visual cue for checking current weather condition in your location or anywhere in the world. All you have to do is simply starting the sentence with “Alexa, tell Thermaltake”, then the lighting color will correspond to the weather condition in the location.

Designed to synchronize with ASUS Aura Sync, GIGABYTE RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light Sync and AsRock Polychrome. The water blocks support motherboards that have a 5V addressable RGB header, allowing you to control the lights directly from the above-mentioned software without installing any extra lighting software or controllers.

The controller is designed with a DIP switch on the back. Hence, you can set a number for each controller easily. You can add up to 5 devices to one lighting controller and up to 16 controllers to the software. The controller and the coding guide are included in all packs.

The coolant flow path includes all critical components. Proper cooling of these components contributes to overclocking stability and reliable operation. The block covers the entire PCB, leaving no components exposed to possible damage during handling.

Featuring a compact form factor with 0.5mm micro-channel fin construction guarantees optimal clearance and extreme heat dissipation. The copper base is compatible with most G1/4 fittings.

"When it comes to M.2 solid state drives there are some out there that will run hot and possibly throttle. That means that the controller gets too hot and the performance degrades to keep temperatures in check. This could mean that a drive that is say rated for 1000 MB/s writes might only perform to half that capacity. This means transfers will talk longer and no one wants to wait around. Well ADATA has a nifty solution in their XPG Storm M.2 cooler, which is a M.2 heatsink with an integrated fan as well as RGB lighting. Let’s slap this thing on our M.2 drive and see if it can stop it from throttling!"

ID-COOLING a cooling solution provider focusing on thermal dissipation and fan technology research and production for over 10 years, announced DASHFLOW 360 AIO water cooler, featuring an ever enhanced pump and RGB lighting on both the pump and fans at the same time synchronizing with motherboard RGB control.

The newly developed pump is designed to provide extreme cooling performance with 450L/H water flow and 3m flow lift. Metallic pump cover with the linear cuttings allows amazing RGB lighting through. A big copper base contacts CPU to help the heat transfer. Micro fin submerged design increases the heat dissipation surface.

Premium coated G1/4 fittings are equipped on both ends of the premium sleeved tubing, more reliable & performance efficient. Inside the tubing is self-contained highly efficient and eco-friendly liquid coolant. Users are not suggested to twist the fittings unless you know how to work with customized water cooling kits.

A newly developed square radiator has bigger heat dissipation area to support the superb cooling of DASHFLOW 360. Equipped with a set of RGB DF-12025-RGB-TRIO high airflow fans, DASHFLOW 360 is able to cool down 400W TDP processors. Fan speed is PWM controlled from 900 to 2000RPM, pushing max. airflow of 56.5CFM each. On four corners are mounted with rubber dampeners to absorb operating vibration. Each fan has 9 LEDs around the motor center. Fan blades and frame are made of lighting emitting materials to help an evenly spread RGB lighting.

The lighting from the pump and fans are connected to a RGB Splitter which then connects to motherboard 12V-G-R-B header to get the software control. Users can set the whole PC lighting using the built-in motherboard RGB control panel. For those who use a non-RGB motherboard, an remote RGB controller can also provide various RGB lighting effect.

Universal mounting brackets are included. The latest AMD Ryzen processors are supported. DASHFLOW 360 is compatible with Intel LGA2066/2011-3/2011/1366/1150/1151/1155/1156 & AMD AM4/FM2+/FM2/FM1/AM3(+)/AM2(+). MSRP for DASHFLOW 360: 160USD.

The Orcus 240 is also maintainable, with an inlet for topping up the coolant which really sets it apart from the competition but following similar current trends still comes complete with RGB fans, and RGB LEDs built into the CPU block. Priced at £89.99 you do seem to get quite a bit of bang for your buck, but it will be really interesting to see if these unique features actually aid in performance or functionality, or if there’s a reason Raijintek is the only manufacturer implementing them.

We saw the Cooler Master MasterCase SL600M at Computex 2018 and described it as ‘A lot more case than it appears’. The case admittedly exudes a certain designer chic thanks to its aluminium front and top panels but at first glance, you may think that Cooler Master has designed an oven, rather than an enclosure for a PC. The front of the case has zero in the way of intakes for cool air, however the SL600M is considerably more sophisticated than it appears and Cooler Master has this covered.

The H100i RGB Platinum adds to the previous iteration in several ways, including a more pronounced presence of RGB lighting, with multi-zone LED lighting on the pump housing, with 16 individual LEDs, as well as ML120 RGB fans on the radiator. We also see an improved radiator core and copper cold plate which increases surface area and therefore performance.

In this review we take a look at the Raiju ultimate controller. A wireless PS4 controller that will also work with your PC. Features include a different ergonomic shape, interchangeable parts, its own app and of course RGB lighting. I put it through its paces in a 2 in 1 review complete with unboxing and live stream style game play. Could it be worth the whopping £200 price tag?

How does a 12 core processor with 24 threads sound at a price of 649 USD? Yeah, it might be a mighty compelling product. AMD is back at it again in their Core wars as they release the Threadripper Gen2 based 2920X with a base clock of 3.5 GHz and Turbo to 4.3 GHz, this is a seriously threading processor.
