EVGA’s Z270 Stinger motherboard launched

We’ve covered the 200-series boards from most of the big motherboard companies, but now we’re taking a quick look at EVGA’s offering, the Z270 Stinger. The Z170 Stinger was pretty lackluster, it looked nice, but didn’t have the features to justify its launch price of $199 (though it’s dropped precipitously in price since). The Z270 version though is an already big...

Corsair launches cable kit for SF-series SFX PSUs

The SF600 SFX power supply from Corsair is a great unit, but one of the complaints I had in my review was that the stock ribbon cables were stiff and unwieldy in a tight SFF build. They weren’t terrible by any means, but they were a far cry from the very flexible cables SilverStone includes with their SFF units. Today Corsair is addressing that with a Premium PSU Cable Kit for the SF...

SilverStone at CES 2017: Power Supplies

Our very own Drew Duncan is currently Las Vegas at CES 2017 and his first meeting of the show was with Tony Ou, the marketing manager at SilverStone. SilverStone is one of the few big case and PSU companies that has really thrown their weight behind SFF so it’s always exciting to see what they have in store. SX500-G and SX650-G And of course, at their suite SilverStone is showing off their...
