GIGABYTE has just launched the first AIO liquid cooler under its AORUS gaming brand, which continues on from the work it did with the AORUS ATC800 Cooler earlier this year.
The new AORUS AIO liquid CPU cooler series comes in three different flavors: 240mm, 280mm, and a huge 360mm option each with gorgeous RGB lighting which is customizable with AORUS ENGINE and RGB Fusion 2.0.
GIGABYTE is tapping the Asetek Gen6 Pump and AORUS-designed fans that will provide kick-ass cooling, with silence. They will have support for Intel sockets 2066, 2011, 1366, 115x and AMD sockets TR4 and AM4.
Antec's super-interesting Striker case is now available for sale, coming in at $249 the new open-frame Mini-Tower will make your gaming PC look ridiculously awesome.
It has been designed from the ground up by Antec for enthusiasts building water-cooled gaming PCs, with a super-unique form and structure the graphics card is placed at the front of the PC. This might sound strange, but wow does it look awesome.
Not only that, but we have not just high-end looks but the build quality Antec has here with the Striker is great as well. Antec is using 4mm tempered glass panels that will tease your rig to the world, with aluminum and steel structure providing high durability.
The internet went abuzz a short while ago as speculation of cooling manufacturer CRYORIG shutting down. It has since been updated with more current information.
This was the start about a month ago as US markets started to show many CRYORIG parts out of stock and a severe lack of communication from the company.
EK has been hard at work designing some more cost-friendly options for users looking to get their feet wet in liquid cooling. (I know, bad pun is bad)
EK is now offering full copper-based liquid cooling kits even with RGB for those who like that sort of thing but instead of being Aluminum-based like their 'Fluid Gaming series' this is based on copper parts.
EK Water Blocks or EKWB for short has a long history of making excellent liquid cooling gear. One thing that worries any enthusiast user is the possibility of their new liquid cooling system leaking.
Users now have a way to test their liquid cooling loop for leaks via a unique tool EKWB has recently released.

The new FSP Hydro G Pro series PSUs are fully modular and come in 850W and 1000W configurations with 80 Gold Plus certification. The Hydro G Pros feature fluid dynamic bearing fans and a nifty built-in Eco mode for quiet operation while under load. FSP built these PSUs to last with special coating that boosts durability in harsh climates in up to 95% relative humidity (in other words they're perfect for Florida when your AC goes out).

Corsair has been making big inroads into the hearts and souls of PC gamers across the world for years now, extending into new markets every year and acquiring companies along the way.
Elgato was a recent one, and now rumors are swirling that Corsair is going to acquire custom system builder Origin PC. The rumor is coming from our friends at eTeknix, who said "Corsair is acquiring system builder Origin PC in the US, according to several sources that have informed us earlier today".
Once Corsair has acquired Origin PC it could see its hardware and product stack, including game streaming and product lines from Elgato, rolled into systems across the US. Origin PC also recently showed off its Big O PC which combined an Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and gaming PC all into one. The PC packed a bunch of Corsair goods, but imagine a future where Corsair actually owns Origin PC.
FSP has just unveiled two new members of its new PSU brand DAGGER PRO SFX, with the new SFX-sized PSUs coming in the new DAGGER PRO 550W and DAGGER PRO 650W models.
Both units are an improved version of FSP's current DAGGER line of PSUs, whereas we have advancements made in most areas including efficiency, design, and connectivity. We have a semi-passively cooled PSU with a single 92mm fan keeping it cool and a fully modular design with ribbon cables in the SFX form factor with 550W or 650W at your finger tips. But don't worry, FSP includes an SFX to ATX bracket in case you upgrade your rig in the future.
FSP's new DAGGER PRO SFX PSUs are fully SFX12V V3.3 standard compliant, with a powerful single +12V rail design that will ensure you get maximum performance to all of your components. There's 80 Plus Gold rating in both models, and with their semi-fanless design we're looking at a single 92mm fan keeping it all cool, which is impressive for such a small PSU.
Computex 2019 - FSP had what I thought were two of the best modded PCs on show at Computex 2019, in amongst a bunch of PSUs that the company is better known for.
Just look at this, it's utterly gorgeous. The modded PC is split into two: the PC below with its Dagger Pro PSU and Bitspower watercooling products, while the top layer is a place of Zen. The attention to detail is beautiful.
See what I mean? The touches on the tiles on the roof or the trees and grass and even individual steps.
