AMD launches standalone Wraith Max RGB cooler
Separates game audio from your mic.
Do AMD's Ryzen 3 budget busters trounce Intel, or should you opt for a Ryzen 5 instead?
A mini-ITX Z68 board. This has got to be ace, right?
A P67 board that's full of features, but can they justify its high price?
We get some hands-on time with Thermaltake's latest high-performance CPU cooler, the FrioOCK.
We test and compare memory performance, scaling from 1,333MHz to 2,133MHz, to find the sweet spot.
Gigabyte ditches its traditional colours for Intel's new Sandy Bridge CPU - see what you think!
Intel finally gets around to updating the brilliant i5-750. Let's hope that hasn't broken it.
The Extreme4 definitely looks the part - we see if it delivers on those flashy looks.
Does the new Core i7-875K provide a compelling reason to build a top-end LGA1156 system?
Intel is set to shake up its CPU line-up with new CPUs and price cuts
Will Intel's first mid-range unlocked CPU set the market on fire?
Possibly the most overclockable CPU on the planet, and it costs less than £75!
Mini marvel with USB 3 and and amazing overclockability
We review ECS' own cheap and cheerful mini-ITX H55 motherboard for Intel LGA1156 CPUs.
This cooler is great, but only if you've already got a pair of quiet fans to use with it.
Gigabyte is about to dip its toe into the SFF market and make its first serious mini-ITX board using the Intel H55 chipset.
Gigabyte's brilliant micro-ATX P55M-UD2 offers a bag-full of features and overclocking potential for its modest £85 asking price. Read on to see why this is one of the best motherboards ever made.
The follow up to the Akasa Nero, the Nero S fancies itself as a premium cooler ready to take on the best. With four fat direct-contact heatpipes and a nifty S-blade fan it certainly looks up to the task. We see if it'll triumph or go up in flames in the bit-tech thermal test rigs.
Zotac launches another teeny motherboard - the H55ITX-A-E includes 802.11n WiFi and a full 16x PCI-E slot. We take it for a spin with a Core i5-750 and Core i5-661 to see what this little tiger can do (clue: a lot).
We take a look at the X120TF, a weighty copper heatsink and no fan from Korean newcomers CoolAge. It uses an interesting new honeycomb design for its heatsink fins - but unfortunately, it doesn't seem set to displace our current favourite coolers.
It's teeny, it's tiny, it's DFI's MI P55-T36 mini-ITX motherboard! Performance P55 meets small form factor, and we compare the MI P55-T36 to its full size ATX brothers to see if keeps up with the big boys.
Intel's latest 32nm processors, codenamed Clarkdale, are the first to integrate a GPU. We take the new budget-sensitive Core i3-530 and Core i5-661 for a spin to see how they compare to previous CPUs - will a Core 2 Quad Q6600 still cut it, and has AMD got anything to fight back with? Read on to find out...
Someone accidentally put some details of the imminent Core i3 processors live - read on to see what they might be like!
We take a sneak peak at one of the first motherboards we've seen that's ready for Intel's up-coming, 32nm Westmere CPUs. MSI's H57M-ED65 is a micro-ATX board that really looks the part, with chunky heastsinks, stylish design and layout and display outputs for the CPU's integrated GPU.
Gigabyte confirms everyone's suspicion that the forthcoming six-core Gulftown CPU will be branded as Core i9.
Gigabyte squeezes in the goods into this micro-ATX P55 motherboard. It's not all that cheap but it still squeezes in CrossFire and SLI support, as well as plenty of features. We check if it trade blows with the big boys to decide whether it's worth pairing with the popular Core i5-750.
MSI's performance-orientated P55 motherboard is the GD65. With the looks and some of the features its bigger brother, the GD80, but a price closer to its cheaper brothers, we had a look to find out if this board is the Lynnfield board to buy.
The original Bloomfield Core i7s were a huge leap forward, providing masses of performance, both out of the box and when overclocked. Ten months on, Intel has finally released the range of CPUs to fill the gap between Core 2 and Core i7 with the new Lynnfield-core CPUs.
An in-depth analysis of what the new Lynnfield architecture of LGA1156 Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs is, what new things it brings and where it fits in Intel's CPU line-up. Read on to see what's new, what's great, and what's not!
MSI has a ludicrous launch offer on Tuesday, with 55% off its premium Intel P55 motherboards: it's first come, first serve so get in quick!
We've tested five coolers that are not only on sale now, but are also ready to fit Intel's forthcoming LGA1156 Lynnfield CPUs. Get ready for Lynnfield by bagging your LGA1156-compatible cooler before the rush. Read on to find out which can handle a big overclock the best.
We're rocking the first look boat recently aren't we? Just hit our doorstep is not one but two MSI P55 boards we've dissected to see what's new and this time around we think MSI will give Asus and Gigabyte a run for their money.
The first LGA1156 motherboards are just starting to trickle into the bit-tech labs. As we're still being held at bay with the performance numbers, we take a look at Asus' particularly striking P7P55 Deluxe to see what kind of features we can expect from the pending range.
We've got our hands on an early, working sample of Gigabyte's upcoming P55-based GA-P55-UD5 motherboard. It's another LGA1156 hoping to win the hearts of early Lynnfield adopters, so we've had a look at the board to see what you can expect if you opt for a new Intel and Gigabyte system in the Autumn.
Asus rushes us the first working sample of it's very first LGA1156 motherboard in the UK. We take a look, benchmark and overclock this first of its kind motherboard for the forthcoming Lynnfield Core i5 and i7 CPUs.
