Details on Rainbow Six Siege Operation Wind Bastion Revealed

Yesterday, 11:47 AM


Yesterday Ubisoft shared the details of the last season of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege third year of content; Operation Wind Bastion. Along with changes such as an improved user experience for the game's shop, Operation Wind Bastion is bringing with it a new Attacker and Defender, Nomad and Kaid, and the new map Fortress. The Test Server for Operation Wind Bastion goes live today, allowing players to try the new content out before it comes to the main game, and without impacting their main game profile. Test Server access is limited to Windows PC.

Nomad is the new Attacker and comes armed with the AK-74M and ARX200 along with her airjab launcher and proximity air blast grenade. This will allow her to expose Defenders by pushing them out of cover. The Defender, Kaid, may be a shocking addition for some, as he can use his Rtila Electroclaw to electrify all metallic objects in proximity, including reinforced walls, barbed wire, and deployable shields. For traditional weapons he has an AUG A3 and TCSG12.

NVIDIA and Acer Black Friday Deals

Yesterday, 10:50 AM

It is that time of year when we see Black Friday deals on various items, including a number of PC components, laptops, and pre-builts. Instead of trying to list them and the relevant information all in this news item, or pick out specific ones, I threw them all onto the Google Calendar embedded below. Here is a separate link to it, in case that is easier to explore than the embed below: 2018 – Black Friday Deals.

For NVIDIA we have a number of graphics cards, both GeForce GTX and GeForce RTX, laptops, desktops, and a couple Acer G-Sync monitors. For Acer there are laptops, Chromebooks, desktops, and monitors on sale from a number of retailers. I want to point out though that the Aspire AZ3-700-UR12 all-in-one desktop will be an Amazon Lightning Deal on 11/29, when it will be $300 off.

I should also note that all deals are subject to change, and in some cases are limited to how long supplies last.

AURAFLOW X 240 Announced by ID-Cooling

Yesterday, 09:32 AM


Without question, one of the more important components to our computers, if we want the best performance, is the CPU cooler. Now if you are looking to upgrade or build a new machine, you have another option to consider in the AURAFLOW X 240 AIO cooler from ID-Cooling. This new cooler features a 240 mm radiator and its PWM fans can go from 700 RPM to 1800 RPM, pushing a maximum of 74.5 CFM each. Also helping make this an efficient cooler though is its new and powerful pump that offers a flow rate of up to 106 L/H and a lift range of 1.3 m H2O. To keep it quiet, there are rubber dampeners on the fan frame to absorb vibrations, but if you want to bright and colorful, both the pump and fans are 12 V RGB supporting. This means you can control their color and lighting effects by motherboard software or with the included internal controller. An RGB splitter is also included and it supports four devices, so an extra RGB LED fan could be connected to it, if you wish.

The AURAFLOW X 240 should be available late this month with an MSRP of $79.99. Its mounting brackets support a range of Intel and AMD sockets, including Intel's LGA 2066 and LGA 115X and AMD's AM4 and TR4.

Her mission in the game will be to hunt down the Seven Deadly Sins, by order of the Charred Council whose purpose is to bring balance. This Intro though also introduces us to the Riddle of Sorrows, the question that if sin is part of the grand design, then would that not make it divine? It also presents the question, does Death make good tea?
