Pretty sure that those with knowledge may already be aware of some of these items but I find them interesting.

- Fractal have come out with a Compact version of their excellent Define 7 case....pretty much a smaller, lighter version of it's big brother, would be a good option for those with limited space...wonder if PCS will see the need to stock these?

Define 7 Compact Review

- Intel have announced the discontinuation of their Coffee Lake processors as December this year:

- Most interesting is the possible prices for the new AMD 3000XT processors...it is only based on a French Retailer listing them on it's website so the reality may be completely different..may, however, give some idea as to potential prices:

3000XT is what i'm waiting to see..... more so if there is an increase applied to the boost clocks. With the 3800X and 3900X we could be looking at a very tight margin between them and Intel if they get a peak bump in like with the base.

This just makes me feel warm and fuzzy. This level of tear down and option for building is just sublime.

Can't see it being cheaper than the non-XT, unless they are thinking about serious price drops across the range. My guess would be more like £350/380, but will be interesting to see :D

True but then we have to to take into account the Premium we pay for not being in America and it'll probably be the usual case of whatever the price is in dollars, it will just be the same but with a pound sign instead

Exactly. From what I’ve heard they’re supposed to be the same price the original versions were priced at on release.
