Pros: Brightness goes up pretty high. Color pallet is also great. Easy to install and set up as it connects through a molex connection.
Cons: The lighting modes and color pallets could be better. There aren't many colors to choose from other than what you see on the controller. Also you cannot get things like breathing on one color it seems. Each time I try it on either of the two kits I bought (for 2 PCs) they just cycle through all the colors while breathing.
Other Thoughts: It really makes your PC look amazing. If you are on a budget, get these. You get 2 strips of ~10"-11" magnetic LED strips as opposed to others that cost about twice as much and just give you one really long LED strip.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 AMP! Edition, ZT-P10700C-10P, 8GB GDDR5 IceStorm Cooling, Metal Wraparound Carbon ExoArmor exterior, Ultra-wide 100mm Fans, Spectra Lighting, PowerBoost, FREEZE fan stop
Pros: It maxes out all her games at 1080p. Her PC has no problem running her heavily modded Skyrim game or other games she plays. From my initial time with it (I got the GTX 1080), it seems really good. Hooked it up to my TV and was surprised that it could handle 4K at around 30-40fps with max everything.
Card is surprisingly cool. Saw temperatures of around 44-47 C while running Fallout 4 without any change to OC or fan speed.
Cons: Nothing! Had no problem installing or getting it to display, like my small issue with my 1080. Her 1070 was able to display through and old HDMI 1.0 cable while mine couldn't. Kinda weird.
Other Thoughts: For 1080p gaming, this card will eat any game you can throw at it with max everything.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Hydro Series H100i GTX Extreme Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
Pros: The braided coolant tubes stand out so much. Currently my CPU is running at 40 C most of the time or lower.
Cons: Coolant hoses are pretty stiff. Be prepared to struggle to fit in a shallow case. Wasn't much of a problem for me in my NZXT S340, but it is pressing against the acrylic side panel.
Other Thoughts: This cooler is probably overkill for moderate overclocking. My CPU (Intel Core i5 4670k) never goes above 40 C even when OC a bit.READ FULL REVIEW
