Razer DeathAdder Elite

Right now, the mouse I use is the Logitech G502 Proteus. This is only because I had to give up my 2013 Razer DeathAdder because of the somewhat prevalent double clicking issue. It was the only thing (well 1 of 2 things - more on that later) that kept it from the perfect gaming mouse. And now, the best gaming mouse is getting a major upgrade.

Razer just announced the Razer DeathAdder Elite.

Is the PS4 Pro Worth It?

The quick answer to that question is "it depends." There are a number of criteria that have to be fulfilled before I can say that "yes, the PS4 Pro is a good buy for you."

Let's start with the basics. What can the PS4 Pro do that the regular PS4 can't? In a nutshell, the PS4 Pro upscales your PS4 games to 4K resolution and improves gaming performance, pretty much. The Pro's GPU is 128% more powerful than the vanilla PS4, and that allows for the 4K output. The CPU of the Pro shares the same architecture of the vanilla PS4, only with a higher clock speed. Those two things are the main differences, but the Pro also sports 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth has been bumped up to 4.0 from 2.1. The bump in Bluetooth improves power consumption, data transfer rates, reliability, security, speed - all that good stuff.

Beginner's 6600K Overclocking Adventure

When I put Kobalt together, I did so with the express intention of overclocking. I knew nothing about it. I had no experience in it. I just knew I wanted to do it.

I bought a 6600K and a all-in-one Corsair H80i GT Hydro Series CPU cooler, and then studied all I could about it. And I guess this shows obvious lack of forethought on my end because Kobalt was supposed to end up in a Cougar QBX, a teeny tiny pouch of a case. Eventually, he got bumped up to a Corsair Carbide Spec M2, so there's a little more breathing room, which helps with cooling.

Kobalt - Bim's Corsair Carbide Spec M2 Micro-ATX Build

In 2006, I built my very first PC. It, at the time, was a fairly impressive machine. I used a Core 2 Quad back when Core 2 Quads were new. It served me faithfully for 10 years or so. During that time, every now and then, I would play around with the idea of upgrading my rig, researching on parts and prices. After getting married in 2015, I had saved up enough funds to finally get a new rig. 

I immediately set off researching once again. And this is what I eventually ended up with. Everyone, meet Kobalt.

Originally, I set out to build a Mini-ITX rig. I did my research, but I guess it wasn't thorough enough. Or at least, I believed I had the skillz to put one together. I am, by no means, a beginner, but building and picking out parts for a small build just fell right outside my skill set.

This was my original build:
