AVADirect wasn’t really a systems builder on our radar until late last year when we reviewed their Avant Mini Cube Gaming PC. After extensive testing, we found that the system was well configured, well built, and well priced, quickly propelling AVADirect to the top as one of our favorite custom PC builders.
Recently, AVADirect sent us another one of the systems in their lineup, the AVADirect X370 Quiet Gaming PC, which as its name implies is AVADirect’s quiet gaming PC offering based on AMD’s X370 Ryzen platform.AVADirect Quiet Gaming PC Specs Desktop AVADirect X370 Quiet Gaming PC Case Phanteks Eclipse [...]
Corsair produces some of the finest gaming keyboards on the market and today they’re also getting into the market of producing some of the finest keycaps as well.
Corsair’s new double-shot PBT keycaps blends the exquisite double-shot printing technique with premium PBT plastic. Unlike most keyboards which use ABS keycaps that tend to shine after prolonged use, PBT is a harder plastic that holds its shape better and will stay looking fresh for years.
Double-shot keyprints layers two different colored plastics on top of one another, with the bottom layer seeping through the top layer to form the keyprints. Double-shot [...]
First Person Shooter, or FPS, games are one of the most common gaming genres out there, but when it comes to gaming mice designed specifically for the genre, there is surprisingly very few out there. Of course, if you ask any professional FPS gamer, it’s easy to understand why. As FPS gaming relies almost solely on the quality of the main switches along with the accuracy of the sensor, FPS gamers typically select simple mice with quality switches and ultra-accurate sensors making gaming mice such as the Zowie EC2, Razer DeathAdder Elite, Logitech G Pro, or SteelSeries Rival 300 some of the most popular gaming mice for FPS gamers.
Corsair has outfitted its Vengeance DDR4 RAM series with shiny white armor and lots of lights.
The new Vegeance RGB White DDR4 comes with a white heating shroud to better blend in with your case or offer higher contrast, which ever you prefer. The shroud is still decked with RGB lighting. Besides being able to be controlled via the Corsair LINK sofware, it’s also compatible with Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light, and Asus Aura Sync lighting control software.
The Corsair Vengeance White DDR4 comes in kits of 16GB, 32GB, and 128GB. Pricing starts at $189.99.
