Pros: I got this headset as a christmas gift and I absolutely love it. They sound amazing, at least for music; I haven't gamed with them yet. I'm not feeling the "uncomfortable-ness" others have talked about and I have pretty big ears and piercings. I also received a pair of GUNNAR glasses (I'm wearing the gunnars and the headset as i write this review) and I don't find wearing both at the same time at all uncomfortable.
Cons: None, so far. I'll play some games tomorrow and see how they sound and how the comfort is wearing the headset and the glasses for a few hours.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fantastic. Huge, but still fantastic. Looks amazing in my build and the performance is great. I haven't had time to OC my 4770 yet but at stock clock speed and full load, temps were stable at 67°C. It's not at all loud at full load either, especially compared to my laptop which sounds like a hurricane with just minecraft running. I was concerned about RAM clearance but I bought it anyway because I love the way it looks. Clearance turned out to be no issue (see other thoughts)
Cons: Price? Not going to take an egg though because the performance is excellent and it's just so darn sexy.
Other Thoughts: I did my build in the Fractal Arc Midi R2 on an Asus Hero VI motherboard and this thing fit perfectly. The nut closest to the VRM heatsink on the motherboard was a bit of a pain to get the threads started on, but no biggie. As for clearance, I was able to install 2 sticks of Corsair Vengeance Pro after the cooler was mounted with plenty of room to spare. Because of the way the outer heat pipe slopes up and that heatsink is higher, I would say just about any memory should fit under there. Granted this was done outside of the case; I imagine that removing or replacing a stick might be a little more difficult inside the case, but it shouldn't be impossible.READ FULL REVIEW
