Published 28th April
There’s no doubt that right now we’re living through difficult times. COVID-19 represents the biggest threat to our society that we’ve seen for the last 50 years. As economies reel from its effects, companies across the planet have taken measures to alleviate the damage caused. Our own publishing house is no different, and the lengths they’ve gone to, to protect the livelihoods of its employees cannot be underappreciated.
Although Maximum PC, like many brands at Future hasn’t escaped those cuts, we’re committed to providing you with some of the very best content in features, tutorials and reviews that we can muster.
This issue, and with the arrival of the mag’s new editor, Zak Storey, we’re taking a deep-dive look into the wondrous world of liquid-cooling, with a full 10-page spread on just how you can go about building your very own custom loop. Whether you’ve got a budget of $140 or $1000, we cover everything you need to know about the mystical art, from fittings, to radiators, to technique and more.
Working from home getting you down? Just not feeling productive? Or perhaps you need a distraction and something to break up all this down-time with? Alex Cox has written a fantastic feature for us on 70 free programs that you can install right now, it’s well worth a read and has even encouraged some of the Maximum PC team to install a few of em.
On top of that, we show-off our very own ITX liquid-cooled Pink Pariah. This $3,333 build is aimed solely at those looking for the absolute pinnacle of 4K console gaming. It’s an exercise in gluttony, and a fantastic opportunity to get to grips with the Phanteks Evolv Shift X chassis.
Combine all of that with a set of kick-ass reviews, tutorials, and columns from some of our very best writers, and we hope you enjoy the latest issue of Maximum PC.
