Even better looking

The Z370 Gaming Pro Carbon from MSI is a mid-range motherboard that comes with a few interesting features. Compared to the previous model, which goes by the name Z270 Gaming Pro Carbon, we see a similar color scheme - as the name suggests - but a reworked layout and a new design for all the heatsinks. Although the design has been improved, we still see cheap plastic covers all over the motherboard.


Out there in a few days

At Computex 2017 Cooler Master celebrated their 25th anniversary by revealing two redesigned cases: the Cosmos and the HAF. The upcoming MasterCase H500P is based on the same design that the old HAF cases were known for but it now features RGB lighting, a cleaner layout and extended water cooling support.

Getting a Coffee Lake CPU might be tricky

Intel is expected to launch its 8th generation of CPUs in just a couple of days, but early adopters might have to wait more than just few days. It's not the first time that Intel is facing supply issues at launch and according to Sweclockers we might have to wait until mid-December until these chips are widely available.



Compatible with up to four M.2 SSDs

ASUS has released its Hyper M.2 x16 PCIe add-in-card, which is a daughter-board that can be equipped with four M.2 SSDs. We have already seen this card in many pictures and videos lately and now it’s finally available. This is a VROC (Virtual RAID on CPU) card and it can be used in VROC modes on compatible motherboards.


Revealed by e-tailer

The Swedish online e-tailer Inet has listed an unannounced ASUS motherboard, which goes by the name ROG Strix B350-I Gaming. This motherboard looks like a downsized version of the ROG Strix B350-F Gaming but it also sports features that can be found on high-end motherboards. For example there is a SupremeFX audio chip as well as the same M.2 heatsink that we can find on the ROG Strix Z270I Gaming.


First MSI X299 microATX model

With the X299M-A Pro, MSI introduces the first MSI X299 micro-ATX motherboard, which is only compatible with the Intel’s Core i5-7640X and i7-7740X. Like the name suggests, the X299M-A Pro doesn't belong to the vendor’s Gaming series.



Available in October

According to the latest information, NVIDIA is working on a GTX 1070 Ti in order to respond to AMD's RX Vega 56. At the moment there isn’t a lot of information on this topic that can be found, but current rumors suggest that the GTX 1070 Ti will perform almost on par with the GTX 1080.



Coffee Lake will definitely not work on Z270

It’s already common knowledge that Intel's upcoming 8th generation Coffee Lake series of CPUs is going to use the socket LGA 1151, leaving many to wonder if Coffee Lake would be backwards compatible with Intel's 100-series and 200-series, such as Intel Z170 and Z270 motherboards.



A downgrade from the Gaming Pro Carbon

The X399 SLI Plus is very similar to the more expensive Gaming Pro Carbon. The main difference between these two models regards the metal reinforcements and the number of PCIe x16 slots. While on the X399 Gaming Pro Carbon there are five PCIe x16 slots, on the upcoming X399 SLI Plus we find "only" four of them. This motherboard should soon be available at an attractive price point.


Comes with AMD RAIDXpert package

One of the most interesting features about AMD's X399 platform is the fact that there are 64 PCIe lanes. While 4 lanes are dedicated to the chipset, the other 60 lanes are for PCIe devices such as graphics cards, a sound card and apparently NVMe SSDs. When AMD launched Ryzen Threadripper, support for NVMe RAID was missing on this platform. Nevertheless it looks like AMD did it’s homework and meanwhile the X399 platform is capable of handling NVMe RAID.


Up to 45%

The current year has been a great one for motherboard manufacturers since both Intel and AMD have released new platforms. Intel for that matter has released their 200-series and X299 motherboards, while AMD has shown AM4 and TR4 based platforms. For the consumers there is now a lot of different products to choose from.

Facts can change

Over the past weeks we have read several reports regarding the lack of custom RX Vega 64 graphics cards. Unlike the previous rumors about the missing custom Gigabyte RX Vega 64, it appears that the manufacturer is actually going to release such a card based on a custom design.



Flagship model

ASRock has revealed the full specifications of its X299 Taichi XE motherboard. This model belongs to the high-end series and it's recommended for Core i9 processors. This board is quite similar to the X299 Taichi, but features a completely redesigned CPU VRM.


With two drives

NVMe capable SSDs are growing increasingly popular these days, offering much higher transfer speeds than the usual SATA drive. Transcend is now ready to launch two drives, which are compatible with Mac OS and Windows. The MT820 is designed for Windows PCs while the JetDrive 820 is compatible with Macs after late-2013.


Another high-end AM4 motherboard

The X370 Gaming M7 ACK from MSI is a high-end motherboard that comes with a few interesting features. Compared to X370 XPower Gaming Titanium, the Gaming M7 ACK should be a bit cheaper but still pack a bunch of features. At a first glance the X370 Gaming M7 ACK looks very similar to the Intel Z270 version with the same naming.
