ECS Z270H4-I LGA1151 Motherboard Review

Motherboards/Intel S1151 by stefan @ 2017-09-18 read/post comments(0)

ECS Z270H4-I is a pretty solid offering from the manufacturer that does support the Intel’s 6th gen and 7th gen processors and despite the Mini ITX size, we do get quite a bit of expansion options. The board packs no less than four SATA ports, one M.2 slot for Wi-Fi/BT, another one for 2242/2280 SSDs, but also one PCI-Express x16 Gen 3.0 slots. In terms of memory, we can equip it with up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM and at the same time it does not seem to have issues running with higher frequency RAM since it is able to read the XMP profiles properly. read more

GAMDIAS HERMES P1 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2017-09-10 read/post comments(0)

Since this keyboard does arrive with the exact same switch model as the ROCCAT Suora FX, we have had a similar overall experience when using it while playing games such as Kritika Online, Agents of Mayhem, Black Desert Online or Secret World Legends. The unified HERA software offers plenty of configuration options (does have a portable version available as well), while several options can be accessed right from the keyboard, thanks to the multitude of function keys. We do get a free plastic wrist rest in the package and the custom keycaps do look great when the LED lighting is activated. read more

Shuttle XPC nano NC03U Barebone Review

Others/All-in-one PC by stefan @ 2017-09-02 read/post comments(0)

When placing the NC02U and NC03U head-to-head, we can find a similar looking chassis on the outside, but what is on the inside matters: we are now dealing with the latest Kaby Lake-U 7th generation of Intel CPUs with an updated iGPU, DDR4 RAM support for improved performance, while the power ratings do remain the same. The unit does only weight 0.4 kg and can be mounted in three different ways (horizontally, vertically via the supplied stands but also in the back of the display thanks to the VESA mount) and we do get software support for Windows 10 64-bit platforms but also Linux 64-bit. read more
