Thinkware F800 Review

New for the company this time around is the Thinkware F800, which is the new flagship in the Thinkware F-series dashcams. Unlike the Thinkware X-series dashcams, the F-series are more [...]

Simple, Portable, Durable

Over the years, Cooler Master has grown up quite a bit with their mechanical keyboard designs. Unlike many of the designs of the past, Cooler Master’s new keyboards now focus on a more of the back to basics design approach with minimal frills, but all the functionality you’d want in a mechanical keyboard.

The Cooler Master Masterkeys Pro S is the embodiment of that new design philosophy. Aside from the logo, Cooler Master keyboards appear to have few differentiating factors against its competitors, but as the platitude goes, never judge a keyboard by its cover.

Today we’ll be reviewing one of Cooler [...]

How to Overclock Your Monitor with a Nvidia Graphics Card

As PC enthusiasts, we spend quite a lot of time tinkering with our CPUs and GPU overclocks to squeeze every last bit of performance out of them, but it’s not common knowledge that monitors can also be overclocked as well.
