For FMS 2017, Seagate made a slew of new announcements including a new 64TB NVMe PCIe SSD, updates to the Nytro SSD lineup, a new RealStor storage appliance, and Nytro Q-Boost technology.
When Seagate announced their 60TB SAS SSD last year, it was an impressive feat however, Seagate and its partners quickly realized that there were limited use cases for the SSD. The capacity was simply too large for the relatively performance limited SAS interface.
For 2017, Seagate went back to the drawing board and announced a new 64TB NVMe SSD which is simply a full height, half-length form factor add-in card containing eight M.2 22110 PCIe Gen 3 x4 [...]
Spyware, adware, ransomware, rootkits, worms, viruses, trojans, keyloggers, hijackers and more. These days, there are literally millions of ways your computer could get infected by some sort of malware and generally speaking, dealing with this stuff is a massive pain in butt. Many of these malwares not only attempt to look legitimate, but they also embed themselves by modifying registry keys and other system settings to ensure that once they’re in a system, they don’t leave.
Luckily, there are some great people who have developed some effective tools to remove that malware so you don’t have to figure out how to do it manually. Here are some of the best [...]
Here at Custom PC Review, we love building our own custom PCs and as long as you’re up for it, we’d 100% recommend you do the same, but sometimes it’s just better to leave the PC building to the pros. Whether it’s because you lack the time or your friend who can’t even put together a desk from Ikea asks if it’s a good idea to build a custom water cooled gaming system, there’s plenty of reasons to go with a custom PC builder.
Today we’ll be sharing a few of what we think are the best custom PC builders on the market today.

Fake goods plague almost every industry and sometimes the scammers behind the fakes go to pretty elaborate lengths to make their goods look legit.
Case in point. Recently, several Reddit users in the /r/AMD Reddit reported receiving fake CPUs from Amazon. The CPUs were in actuality older and lower end Intel LGA CPUs, but the criminals covered up the Intel branding on the CPU with a well faked AMD Ryzen sticker and stuck the CPU along with a fake cooler in real AMD Ryzen packaging.
Currently, there have been two reported cases of this happening so far, but given the lengths the scammers went through to do something [...]
Remember the good old 1980’s? The days of the IBM Personal System/2 PC when a 20MHz CPU, 2MB of RAM, and a 100MB HDD cost you $10,000? Or the first time you laid hands on the sweet, sweet Model F keyboard with the intoxicating clack clack of the buckling spring switches?
Well, sad to say nobody is bringing back the IBM PS/2, but if you yearn to be able to feel the IBM Model F keyboard once again, you may be in luck.
An IBM Model F keyboard enthusiast is attempting to bring back the Model F with an ambitious new project. His goal? “A perfect, working reproduction” of the original IBM Model F, except with modern technical [...]
Corsair recently updated their budget case lineup with the new Carbide SPEC-04, the successor to the Carbide SPEC-03. The Carbide SPEC-04 brings an overhauled design and some extra features yet maintain its budget price point.
For our review today, we received the Corsair Carbide SPEC-04 in black however, it will also come in red and yellow as well. Corsair’s Carbide SPEC case series has always had the design language that screamed gaming, but the fourth iteration of the series, the SPEC-04, is quite a bit different. Whereas previous generation SPEC series cases featured an ultra-aggressive design, the new SPEC-04 features a design that’s a bit [...]
A few weeks ago, AMD launched the Radeon RX 500 series, which is mostly a refresh of the previous-generation RX 400 series they launched less than a year ago. Mostly because the Radeon RX 500 series is based on the very same Polaris architecture as its predecessor, albeit on a slightly more mature process. Whatever your stance on rebadges, it’s clear that AMD has decided to double-down on its Polaris architecture in 2017, at least for the midrange and entry-level segments until its RX Vega GPUs appear later on to cover the high-end market. So like it are not, Polaris is here to stay for the foreseeable future.
Today, we’re going to take a [...]
Last year, I reviewed the Creative Roar 2 portable wireless speaker which has quickly become my favorite Bluetooth speaker of all time. Along with great sound quality, the Creative Roar 2 is portable, has a long battery life, is an extremely good looking speaker, and is a good value for the price. Since then, Creative has released the next generation of their Roar speakers, the first of which is the Creative iRoar launched early last year.
Following up on the iRoar, Creative also launched a miniaturized version of the iRoar, creatively titled the Creative iRoar Go. The new Creative iRoar Go promises the same powerful [...]

The case also features a number of improvements over some of the other tempered-glass cases in Phanteks’ lineup including magnetic hinges with swivel to open and allow the user to easily get in and out [...]
Gaming hardware has traditionally held a reputation for being bulky and intimidating. Gaming PCs are often visualized as huge towers decked out with flashy lights and sports car inspired paint jobs. While that would’ve been accurate just a few years ago, performance PCs are no longer confined to just “big”. Thanks to ever increasing tiny hardware that pack a serious punch, SFF, or Small Form-Factor, gaming systems are significantly growing in popularity.
Today we’ll be reviewing one tiny, budget-focused graphics card that can fit almost anywhere yet provide decent gaming performance for the casual gamer, the [...]
