I wasn't aware of this lawsuit between Asetek and Cooler Master, but it seems a court has sided with CM for now. Back in April 2017, Cooler Master lost a dispute in the court against Asetek, a company that specializes in CPU and GPU liquid solutions over patent infringement. As result, Cooler Master is required to compensate a huge sum of $600,000 for violating U.S. patents 8240362 and 8245764 which belonged to Asetek. However, the table has turned in the favor of Cooler Master, as the court in the Hague has annulled a European patent of Asetek for water cooling in the Netherlands because of lack of inventiveness.
Tech Report have a system guide posted. Ryzen 3, Ryzen Threadripper, new Core i7 and Core i9 CPUs, and a tectonic shift in graphics card pricing have made for a tumultuous couple of months in the world of DIY PCs. We're here to help navigate these turbulent waters with a new System Guide.

If you like large scale free-battle games, you'll be happy to know that Battle Royale will be free from the 26th of September. The team at Epic is excited to announce that Fortnite Battle Royale will be available for FREE beginning September 26! The Fortnite Battle Royale mode takes the gameplay of battle royale games and adds all of the action-building pieces unique to Fortnite. This 100-player PvP world will allow you to locate weapons and supplies, destroy enemy cover, drop traps, and build your way to victory.
While I'm here, it seems that Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee is free on Humble Bundle at the moment, too. Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee® is provided via Steam key for Windows. For key redemption, a free Steam account is required. Discussion in this thread.
Finally, a few people pointed out that eBay Australia are celebrating their 18th Birthday by offering 18% off site-wide tonight only. Conditions apply, obviously.
