What is special about the Z170X-UD5 that would make you pick it over other boards?  A $190 price tag is impressive for a Z170, the design is very clean and would look great in a windowed case, USB 3.1 including a Type-C connection, a pair of M.2...

Once USB drives were everywhere, they weren't particularly fast nor large but they were more portable that HDDs and much more durable.  With the arrival of SSDs, flash storage moved from slower thumb drives to SATA which has now become the...

Cooler Master's MasterAir Maker 8; big cooler, big price

01/26/2016 - 13:16

At 758g and standing 135x145x172mm (5.3x5.7x6.8") with the fan installed the MasterAir Maker 8 is not the largest heatsink on the market but it is certainly a solid hunk of metal.  Cooler Master has included a black plastic x-brace with captive...
