ID-Cooling FrostFlow X 240 AIO Review – Budget AIO!

As I complete the ShopzadaPHPCBuild which I am currently working on slowly by upgrading one part at a time due to budget restrictions, I’ve now decided that it’s time to upgrade my CPU cooler. The reason being is that I can not maximize the potential of my processor due to thermal issues using the stock cooler. As I mentioned in my article here, I had to turn off XFR and cripple my processor’s speed just to get decent temps. Today, we’re going to fix that. In this article, we are…

Do you think pairing an old Nvidia 9500GT with a brand new AMD Ryzen 5 2600x is a good idea? Yeah, I don’t think so as well.

Rakk Anyag Frost Review – Cheapest Black and White Micro-ATX Case

Since I’ve started planning for my PC Build I’ve set my eyes on the Tecware Nexus M because of it’s small Micro-ATX form factor and a desirable black and white color scheme. However, by just looking into its front panel it’s pretty obvious that the airflow is somehow restricted and it being a small case certainly won’t help with the overall airflow. Luckily, I was able to find a better alternative with virtually the same specifications in the form of the Rakk Anyag Frost Micro-ATX case. Almost the same design both in…
