Computex 2015 Coverage

What a Perfect time to be a Geek 🙂

Computex is one of the best events to attend, lets see what this year has to offer

Even though I given upon All-in one Liquid Coolers, Chassis, Heatsinks, Fans, Optical bay drives and Power Supply Units (PSU), that don’t mean it ant going to get covered in this years event. Everything goes when it comes to Computex, no matter what or how weird it many be, it’ll be linked.

The same can be said for company’s I dislike or hate, you have to have something to compare it to and who knows the most hated or disliked company could end up been one of the coolest peaces of gear at this years Computex.

The hardware I’ll be personally be looking out for at Computex 2015, would be PCIe SSDs with NVMe support, Z170 Motherboards and Roccat gear mainly their new RGB mechanical keyboard. Not a whole lot this year and if there would be anything else, it would be cheap accessories.
