Pros: - Looks high end
- Very light weight
- Well thought out design
- feature to price ratio very good
Cons: - some corners were cut
- extremely cramped space in back
- Almost need 90 degree Sata power connectors for hard drives
Other Thoughts: I bought this case because it matched exactly what I was looking for. 4 hard drive bays (SSD's can be tossed anywhere so no big deal), very light weight construction, lots of flat surfaces to apply sound dampening foam, and about as compact as you are going to get for a capable ATX mid-tower.
I used to love larger cases with lots of Room and air flow, but these days Liquid cooling removes that need. This case is slightly bigger than your average Micro ATX tower, Ultra light weight, and capable of housing some beefy hardware. There doesn't seem to be any documentation on CPU air cooler clearance, so that might be an issue for someone.
This review is from: Sapphire Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB HBM PCI-E HDMI / TRIPLE DP
Pros: - Cutting edge technology
- Massive Memory Bandwidth
- Runs extremely cool
- Incredibly efficient
Cons: - Radiator Fan makes noise at certain RPM's
- Pump has a very faint high pitch noise
Other Thoughts: This is a solid graphic card. The feel of it in your hands screams "Quality."
My only complaint is the Radiator Fan, which I replaced with 2 SP120 Fans; the Gentle Typhoon fan had a horrible wobble/whine when it reached certain RPM's. At it's default speed of 15% the fan was silent, but at 16% and higher the fan had a wub-wub noise (for lack of a better description).
As for pump whine, I took the cover off of my FuryX and confirmed that I have the blue cooler master sticker on the pump (first batch), but it's honestly not loud at all. Luckily, I have a silent case so I don't hear anything, but I can understand a reviewer with sensitive ears finding the sound irritating in an open test bench.
Power draw is insanely low. My watt meter is either broken, or the Fury x only uses half the power of my old 290, despite the FuryX getting at least 50% better performance at stock clocks.
This review is from: HyperX Cloud Stereo Gaming Headset for PC/PS4/Mac/Mobile - Black
Pros: - Light-weight
- Solid build quality
- Can wear all day (comfortable)
- Detachable Microphone
- Real leather ear cups with memory foam
- comes with additional felt ear cups
- Box contains cable extender and other adapter goodies
Cons: Nothing comes to mind
Other Thoughts: Great Headset. I love the leather memory foam material, and the fact that the back of the ear cups are aluminum, which seems to draw heat away from the inside and prevent ear sweat.
The sound quality is pretty good, better than any other headset/headphones I've used that weren't also infinitely more expensive. If you are looking to buy in this price range, these are the best you can get in my opinion.
One caveat: you need a decent AMP to power the large drivers in this headset. I'm using a cheap Asus dgx 5.1 sound card that has a decent headphone amp and the sound is great, but if I plug this headset into a cellphone or laptop then the sound quality seems to suffer a bit.
