AORUS Z370 Ultra Gaming Motherboard Review

With the launch of Intel's 8th Generation "Coffee Lake" processors we have a whole lineup of Z370 motherboards. Gigabyte's high-end gaming brand AORUS currently has six Z370 motherboards. Today we are checking out the Z370 Ultra Gaming, which sits right in the middle of the lineup. This board will definitely be a great option for many people moving over to the Z370 platform as it has a low cost and of course in typical AORUS fashion plenty of RGB lighting.

Intel Core i5-8400 Processor Review

Yesterday we took a look at Intel's flagship 8th Generation Core Desktop processor, the Core i7-8700K. While that processor sits at the top of the product stack, today we are checking out one of the new Core i5 chips. It is the Core i5-8400 which is the only other 8th Generation Core i5 chip besides the Core i5-8600K. For the first time we are also seeing a 6-core Core i5 chips, much like the new i7's. This means we are going to see a nice performance increase over the previous generation. The Core i5-8400 has six cores, six threads (since no HyperThreading), a base clock of 2.8 GHz and boosts up to 4.0 GHz. Unlike the K-series chips you have a lower TDP of only 65W. This chip also comes in at a very attractive price point of only $182. Let's take it for a spin and see how it does!
