It is the era of the Z270 schipset, and in this article we cover the SuperMicro C7Z270-CG review. It is advertised as a server grade motherboard, but will it deliver in performance, features and aesthetics ?
We review the be quiet! Pure Base 600. The chassis in the Pure Base series is a more compact version that slightly resembles the silent series chassis. A good looking, silent chassis with an attractive price as well, positioning itself in the value segment. The product is an all dark chassis design that remains fairly tool free while offering decent space to work in while retaining quiet airflow and even liquid cooling options. Have a peek at the product we'll review today, the Pure Base 600.

We turn to ASUS who has released a new Z270 motherboard in ye ol' SaberTooth line. Actuality, it is called simply TUF these days. The more rugged and shielded design comes with proper features, and THE most fan connectors I have ever seen. Though very little RGB bling is injected, this motherboard is compatible with the new generalized ASUS AURA SYNC, which is a software suite that allows for multiple choices in additional RGB gear to be driven from your one software suite.
