A new week is here, with several items for you to check out today. We have another look at the Intel Core i9 9900K CPU to see what kind of performance it has in store. On the AMD side of the CPU line, we have a review of the Ryzen 5 2600 to see if this might be an inexpensive and incredibly solid gaming processor. For Intel chips, there's a look at the ASRock Z390 Phantom Gaming SLI/ac motherboard, which includes things like a 10-phase power design and 2.5 Gigabit LAN to pair up with that new i9 9900K. If you're instead going with that Ryzen 5 2600, then there's the MSI X470 Gaming M7 AC motherboard, featuring an improved PCB design and even a header for Corsair's RGB hub so you can control your lighting directly without sacrificing a USB header. We wrap things up with a look at Patriot Viper RGB DDR4 3200MHz RAM and all the color options it has to offer.
