Alphacool Eisbaer 360mm Modular AIO CPU Cooler Black
When it comes to the liquid cooling solutions, the Alphacool is not a new name. Based on their years of experience and expertise, the users can benefit from high-performance Cooling Solutions including their All-In-One and the All-In-One Connected cooling solutions not to mention the complete custom loop setup possibility. Their ideas are innovative and their expertise has allowed for far more industrial applications of their solutions than just the cooling setup for the PCs.
They are also the OEM partners of the various brands including Fractal Design, Cooler Master, Be Quiet, Sapphire, Asus, Novatech to name a few which speaks of their excellence in the design and development of the cooling solutions. Their Eisbaer, Eiswolf, Eiswand are a few products that are quite popular among the PC Enthusiasts.
Today, I am checking upon their Eisbaer 360, All In One CPU cooler. Don’t take it for just another CLC on the market as it is not designed to be like any other CLC design. Majority of the CLC solutions use a closed-loop configuration that would mean user won’t be able to refill the coolant should there be a need. Besides if the pump dies or malfunctions, the complete unit has to be sent in. This is not the case with the Eisbaer series of expandable coolers. The Eisbaer 360 has a 360mm radiator with three 120mm fans to drive your cooling needs. The radiator is fully implemented in the copper which is another difference from the traditional CLCs in the market. It features 11/8mm size PVC hoses with standard G1/4 threading and standard compression fittings. Not only is that but the Pump is their DC-LT Ceramic Ultra Low Noise design. So far, everything sounds like a custom loop setup and this is the exact concept behind this product. The Alphacool has picked the products from their custom loop configuration and produced an All-In-One cooling solution built around the custom loop configuration yet with the Quick-Lock enclosure which enables the users to expand their loop. Let’s see how it performs in real life.

AVADirect Threadripper GeForce Battlebox Ultimate PC Review
AVADirect produces and sells very high-end gaming machines using the latest top of the line hardware, and they are well known in the industry. A few months ago, we took a look at a beastly rig with an overclocked 7700K and two GTX 1080 Ti in SLI, but now we are taking a look at a totally different beast. The Threadripper Battlebox features the 16-core 32-thread 1950X CPU and two GTX 1080 Ti in SLI along with a bunch of other high-end features.

ESCAM QF220 WiFi Doorbell IP Camera Review
Hundreds of dollars in electronics and appliances were taken off our doorstep, and we hadn’t taken precautions to prevent the crime or alert ourselves to criminal presence. Our home alarm system alerts us to intruders inside the residence, but cameras weren’t in a position to detect somebody at the doorstep. Apparently this scenario is all too common: protection on the inside, but nothing on the outside. I decided to remedy this weakness by adding a wireless doorbell camera. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the ESCAM QF220 WiFi doorbell IP camera.

Intel Discontinues Broadwell-E Processors
All things must come to an end, and Intel has decided that it's time to retire their Broadwell-E line of processors. The Broadwell-E family is comprised of four models: the Intel Core i7-6800K, 6850K, 6900K and 6950X. According to the Product Change Notification (PCN) document, Intel is still accepting orders until May 25, 2018, while the last shipment is scheduled for November 9 of the same year. So, there is still sufficient time left for those who plan to acquire one of the aforementioned models. However, we don't see any reason to do so now considering that there are far better options on the market.

Broadwell-E processors debuted last year and were received with mixed reactions. With just one year under their belt, they were eventually replaced by the more powerful Skylake-X models. Intel is probably getting rid of their unsold inventory of Broadwell-E models. Who knows? Maybe we'll even see some price cuts in the not-so-near future.

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X Trio Review
Gaming X meets Lightning Z. Which OEM makes the very best graphics cards? That's a tough one to call, but we wouldn't hesitate to put MSI in our top three. The manufacturer's Gaming X range is typically well received here at HEXUS HQ, exhibiting attractive traits such as low noise, good cooling and a healthy overclock in one well-built package.

We don't have any real qualms with the firm's existing portfolio, but MSI reckons there's room for improvement based on fan feedback. According to the manufacturer, existing Gaming X products use a red-on-black colour scheme that isn't suited to every build, and though the company has frequently extolled the virtues of its dual-fan cooler, it can no longer ignore the fact that many consumers go by the assumption more is better.

Samsung Portable SSD T5 Review
One of my favorite products from last year that I take with me everywhere is the Samsung Portable SSD T3. This portable solid state drive is super small, fast, and is what I’ve used to edit 4K content when I’m on the go. This year Samsung has a new Portable SSD T5, which has increased transfer speeds, a full metal casing design, and the same small footprint. This drive is perfect for content creators on the go and anyone who is looking for fast transfer speeds. Let’s see if this drive can live up to how great the SSD T3 was and if it is worth upgrading.

ZOTAC GTX 1070 Ti AMP Extreme Review
Today we turn to ZOTAC for a detailed look at their new GTX 1070 Ti AMP Extreme.
