The middle of the week is here, with several items to get you going. We have a review of the Gigabyte X299 Aorus Gaming 3 motherboard, offering a more affordable solution for those stepping into the higher-end Intel CPUs. The new AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition card might not be intended purely for gaming, but that doesn't mean some CrossFire testing can't happen to see exactly what two can do together. The MSI Core Frozr XL CPU Cooler gets reviewed to see if the larger size and dual fans help out more with cooling. For those after some power, the SeaSonic FOCUS PLUS Gold (FX) 650W PSU gets reviewed to check if it should be powering your rig. There are several other items to get to as well, such as the Razer Lancehead mouse, a QNAP NAS, and more, so hit them all up below.

A new week is here, with the monthly already a couple days in. We have a review on the AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics card, which is a professional level card that can do some gaming, but will be far more comfortable in a business environment than consumer. If you want some extra power for your laptop, perhaps the Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1070 Gaming Box is for you, offering a high-end card to let you game on your laptop. We have a look at the Cooler Master Devastator 3 Keyboard and Mouse Combo, providing an entry into the world of gaming peripherals without breaking the bank. There's a review on the Razer Hammerhead BT wireless earbuds to hear what they can bring to your music. We wrap up with an article taking a look at how to use a 4K TV as a computer monitor.

The final day of June is here, with a couple of items for you to check out. We have a review of the ECS Z270-Lightsaber motherboard, offering a solid platform for gamers and overclockers alike to build their Intel Kaby Lake system around. Especially when you consider it has support for three video cards. The other item for today is a podcast covering the latest news and reviews of the past week.
