The end of the first week of August is here, but not before some items arrive to get you through to the weekend. Intel's new Core i7-6700K processor gets reviewed to see what kind of boost Skylake can bring to your system. To run the new processor, you'll need a brand new motherboard, and luckily the MSI Z170A Gaming M5 motherboard is reviewed to see if it should be the one for you. If a new video card is what you're after, perhaps the Zotac GTX 970 AMP! Extreme Core Edition, with its custom cooler and high factory overclock, is for you. Or if you need something a little more powerful, we have a look at how the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti in SLI handles the AMD Radeon R9 Fury X in Crossfire. A new case mod uses the Corsair Obsidian 750D case for a very green internal build, complete with rigid tubing for the water cooling setup. Wrapping it all up is a podcast covering the latest news and reviews from the past week.
