Isn't it time for a round up of Mechanical 3.5" HDD?

I'm looking at the Seagate 4TB SSHD but not sure how reliable Seagate are these days, as I've had a few of their older drives fail on me...

A comparison review of the latest GPU solutions, against past generations for the last 3-4 years would be great for those of use wanting to know the apparent advantages of upgrading.

I for one currently have an XFX 7870 that is hot, noisy, and getting a bit long in the tooth when it comes to playing modern games with any sort of AA.

I know it would be a colossal amount of work to do this with all graphics cards, so maybe even if you took either one mid-range or high-end card from each generation and pitted them against the 390/570 or Fury X/980Ti or something.

You could take a look at Anandtech's GPU bench - it's pretty good for that sort of comparison.

Anandtech is ok, but for direct comparison it's not fantastic. There is a distinct lack of selection amongst cards. There is also no Unigine benchmark, which is the one I tend to use for direct GPU comparisons. Most of the bench's are game-related, which as we know, are pretty heavily dependant on drivers working to the best of their abilities.
GPUboss is much the same, but with pure numbers rather than actual benchmark comparisons.

Have you reviewed the Thermaltake suppressor F31 and F51 cases?

Took me a while to come across these; they're like an improved Fractal R5

There was a case round up in custom pc 144, but none of the usual suspects ticked all my boxes ( R5, deep silence 5, H440, Be quiet silent base 800) but the F31 and F51 do.

It's a pity I didn't hear about them earlier; well made, well priced, well specced.
And the windowed version with the power cover looks pretty sexy imo.

There don't seem to be many reviews of them, which is a pity because most cases of the same ilk are lacking in some way

So, I'm sticky-ing this thread for specific hardware review requests. If you've spotted a bit of kit you'd like us to review, post below, and if possible provide a link to the manufacturer's product page so I can track it down all the easier. If we get enough requests, or agree that it's worth covering, you should see your request on these very web pages soon!

A few requests though. Please keep this thread on-topic, and please don't request reviews of stuff that's obviously NDA'd (such as new processors or GPUs) - we'll cover these anyway once their NDAs expire.

Cheers!

Baz
I would love to see a performance review on Nvidia 980ti versus AMD Radeon R9 FURY X in DX12 performance in games at 1080 to 4K. I think results is going to shock a lot of people!

Going to start on a DX12 feature very soon. No time frame yet but I'll bear this in mind
