G.SKILL shows off 3466MHz 16GBx2 DDR4 SODIMM kit

Outside of industrial specialists VLP, and even just normal height LP, RAM seems to have disappeared with the advent of DDR4. Things didn’t change at Computex, with ever bigger and flashier heatsinks being the norm, often in order to fit even more RGBs. As such we didn’t make time to stop by G.SKILL’s booth while at the show, which is unfortunate in hindsight because they were...

Reeven at Computex 2017

Reeven, purveyors of small coolers such as the Steropes, Vanxie and Brontes coolers, had a small showing at Computex 2017 – alas with nothing truly small on display. After berating the team about this, I inspected a few platform agnostic items – fans, RGBs, and the like. Polariz, a 5.25″ bay fan controller. Not really SFF but I quite like the aesthetic. The large knurled knobs...

SilverStone at Computex 2017 – Workstation and Server

Members of the forum are aware of this, but I’m a workstation and server nut. I love systems built for purpose, for work. Possibly because I work so hard in everything I do! When we visited the SilverStone booth at  Computex 2017, I was in awe of some of the hardware they had on display – cases and accessories built for purpose, for work! Sitting next to the bolder RVZ04, a much...

Enermax and LEPA at Computex 2017

Enermax, once a major player in the enthusiast ATX PSU market, unfortunately settled into obscurity over the past few years. Determined to change this, they have put a lot of development into new products, some of which are decidedly intriguing. Along with their sister brand LEPA, they put on a solid showing at Computex 2017. Of course Enermax had the SteelWing chassis we reviewed a few months...

ZOTAC at Computex 2017 – Small Prebuilts and VR Galore!

ZOTAC, one of the originators in the Mini-ITX and SFF world, was present at Computex 2017 showing off a few small PCs, a small(ish) eGPU case, some VR stuff, and the next iteration of the GTX 1080 Mini that Drew reviewed earlier this year – the ZOTAC GTX 1080 Ti! Yes, that is the exact cooler as on the GTX 1080 Mini that Drew guessed was possibly capable of handling the GTX 1080 Ti...

Lian Li PC-Q38 ITX case, new PCIe extenders, and more

Taiwan is home to Lian Li, the well-known makers of all-aluminum cases, and as expected Lian Li had many of their products on display at Computex this year. PC-Q38 Lian Li’s booth had quite a few full-tower aluminum behemoths, but I was immediately drawn to this new Mini-ITX case they had in the back corner. This is the PC-Q38 Mini-ITX case. At 20.2L it’s not tiny for ITX, but it does...

GALAX at Computex 2017

So, we all know of the GALAX GTX1070 Katana, that full height but deliciously single slot graphics card available from the manufacturer. What we didn’t really know, thanks to GALAX’s propensity for larger cards (see the HOF cards as an example), is that they produce other cards that happen to be SFF friendly! First up is the deliciously small GT1030 EX OC White, a single slot, low...
