IN­VEN­TORY

THE BEST BUILD FOR EV­ERY BUD­GET

PCPOWERPLAY - - Tech | Builds -

We’ve re­placed the Per­for­mance and Beast mon­i­tors with the new Asus and Alien­ware dis­plays (re­views on page 77 and 78). We’ve also up­graded the Beast’s mem­ory to a 3466MHz quad chan­nel kit. We’ve cho­sen G.Skill Tri­dent Z for the RGB – which looks ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic on these RAM sticks. 3466MHz was cho­sen to pro­vide max­i­mum per­for­mance but not ridicu­lously fast or it could cause is­sues. The new Ryzen 7 2700X and 2600X CPUs are top per­form­ers but In­tel is still just in front. That may change next is­sue when we look at the next Ryzen 3 bud­get CPUS, plus we’re also group test­ing new In­tel Cof­fee Lake bud­get B360 moth­er­boards.
