Neo Forza MARS RGB 64GB 3200MHz DDR4 Kit Review

Memory by stefan @ 2021-04-12 read/post comments(0)

The Neo Forza Mars 32GBx2 3200MHz C16 kit has performed great on the test platform and provides the much-needed capacity for productivity work that requires more resources such as video encoding. If you have a case with a plexiglass window, the kit can deliver quite a show, being compatible with RGB utilities from the most known motherboard manufacturers! read more


Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2021-04-08 read/post comments(0)

After customizing the DPI and button mapping with our preferences, we started up gaming in Outriders, Diablo 3 and DOOM Eternal: the mouse felt great when used with a palm grip, while the PixArt PMW3392 sensor has tracked flawlessly even more intense action scenes. The paracord cable and low weight of just about 74 grams completes the experience and if the setup is installed optimally you may think that you would be using a wireless mouse instead. read more

CORSAIR K55 RGB PRO XT Gaming Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2021-04-03 read/post comments(0)

The entry-level K55 RGB PRO XT does come with many features a lot of non-pretentious users will use frequently, while the membrane switches are a bit more silent when actuated versus some more expensive mechanical variants (though, less durable). The per-key programmable RGB backlighting, multimedia keys, dedicated buttons for Elgato Stream Deck, tons of programmability options in terms of key remapping do make the K55 RGB PRO XT a very versatile keyboard when used in combination with iCUE. read more

Patriot Memory Viper VP4100 PCI-E m.2 Gen 4x4 1TB SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2021-04-01 read/post comments(0)

The VP4100 PCIe Gen4 1TB SSD from Patriot Memory does perform in-line with the previous Silicon Power US70 PCIe Gen4x4 M.2 2280 1TB model we have tested before and, in some instances, it succeeds to step a bit ahead. Thanks to the integrated heatsink, the drive will not throttle when it is accessed for longer workloads, while the TBW is rated at 1800TB, a benefit of using KIOXIA BICS4 96-Layer 3D TLC packages. read more

CORSAIR K65 RGB MINI Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2021-03-27 read/post comments(0)

Neo Forza eSports NFP075 m.2 2280 1TB PCIe SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2021-03-22 read/post comments(0)

The NFP075 eSports M.2 SSD from Neo Forza does fall in line with the rated specifications, while the capacity does make the drive ideal as a boot drive. It does incorporate selected 3D TLC ICs but also DRAM cache for storing the mapping tables; the controller is a Phison PS5012-E12S with LDPC error correction and NVM Express 1.3 standard support. Neo Forza rates the drive for 1350TB writes (much higher than QLC models) when talking about the 1TB SKU and offers a 3-year warranty. By using 3D TLC instead of QLC, the drive can sustain higher performance levels, without dropping so much as a regular QLC model. read more
