Love from iBuyPower
Alright people I have some more content available for you all to indulge in. Went and seen iBuyPower, which had a few new cases to show off.
The Revolt series got a little bit of an upgrade with Intel's newest version of Ghost Canyon NUC, with it's own custom case, that's quite small. It literally is suspended by rubber grommets to keep vibrations to a minimum.
The Element Dual and the Element CL. The Element Dual is well a dual chambered ATX case, while the Element CL is more designed for hardline watercooling with it's custom distribution block making it easier for users to make a splash into hardline watercooling. IBP also had new hardline fittings that grips the outside of the tube much better than others, as well as being a more industrial look.
Next up I went over to Silverstone, which they were very proud to show of the newest reiteration of the beloved Fortress, the Alta F1. Featuring anodized aluminum and a single tempered glass panel, Silverstone is asking what the community would like to see. Personally I told them, dual tempered glass panels with full black anodized aluminum.
Offerings from CoolerMaster
Then I went over to Cooler Master. They had their version of the NUC Ghost Canyon case as well. It looks like this one will be able to be kitted out from Cyberpower, but I know OCNers will want to build their own.
Next up is cooling. CM had a few things to show off. New versions of the Hyper 212 Evo Ver2 and V8GTS air cooling heatsinks. Also CM had new fans, which the whole Sickleflow series was revamped from 80mm to 140mm. The SF120M fans that I saw at Computex 2019, had a slight ARGB revision that now had a static logo in the center. CM also showed new versions of their AIOs as well.
Next up is the successor to the much popular SG13, the SG14. This revision shifts the PSU to vertical orientation in the front of the SG14.
Then they showed me a ultra SFF case that can change heights to fit different needs!
Corsair bringing some new goodies
Then over to Corsair to get some shots of the new stuff that was announced at the press event the day prior.
So the Origin (now a Corsair company) Big O was announced, but this time with a Corsair 280X as the chassis. The Big O is built as a gaming PC and a console all in one, all liquid cooled.
Next up I had a chance to look at the Corsair A500, the return to air cooling.
Also seen the full line of Corsair Virtuoso headsets.
IBM showing off their Quantum computer
Got some random pics, namely the IBM Quantum computer that is well....
More pics as promised!
Asus Zephyrus G14 w/Ryzen 4800HS and Nvidia RTX 2060
be quiet! had a few new things to see. New Dark Power Pro in 1200w for $389 and 1500w for $439. The Dark Power Pro is a Titanium rated PSU that will come with fully sleeved black cables.
Love from be quite!
be quiet! also debuted a airflow orientated version of the recently released Dark Base 500, the Dark Base 500DX, which features a much more breathable mesh front panel as well as not having the option for a top plate for more silent operation. Color options as of now will come in black and white.
Also from be quiet! are two new air coolers, the Pure Rock 2 and Shadow Rock 3. The Pure Rock 2 will come in two color options, black and silver at a price point of $39 and $44. The Shadow Rock 3 will be priced at $49 while only having the two tone color scheme.
Custom Case mod by Envious Mods
EVGA had a few new things, the RTX 2060 KO as well as the NU AUDIO Pro Surround.
Build from the guys over at Mod My Mods
Gigabyte had a new OLED Aero 15, new AIOs, RTX Waterforce RTX 2080 Super, as well as three new high refresh rate gaming monitors. So keep posted for a reviews soon! Also had a few really good mods from modders in the community.
