This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 120mm Quiet Edition Liquid CPU Cooler – Intel Only
Pros: Excellent Cooling - Runs CPU around 30c
Fairly easy install - Line up and install rear bracket first.
Can't speak for its reliability yet, I was anxious to correct the many reviews complaining it doesn't fit when it fact it fits just fine.
Cons: Not very clear instructions - not too bad if you've installed water cooling before.
Other Thoughts: THIS DOES FIT SOCKET 1150
The back bracket does fit but you need to keep retrying to line up the holes and you will find the correct fitment!
Looking at the back of the motherboard with the bracket lined up with the wholes in general, you use the far right holes on the right side (top and bottom) and on the left use the far right holes again.
The people below simply gave up because you need to try a few times until it lines up perfectly. If you can't line it up, have someone else try.
No need to leave negative reviews for one's own inability to line it up.
Pros: Room for everything!
Plenty of space for future upgrades.
Large Graphics Cards
Large CPU Air Coolers
Large Water Cooling Radiators
A lot of fan mounting locations Bottom, side, top, back, front.
Great layout for a small space
You get all of this in a smaller form factor without sacrificing much.
Cons: The two hard drive bays are right on the other side of the bottom pass thru which is a real pain if you're using both slots.
If you don't have a modular power supply that same space is where you will shove the cables and again, if two drives are present you no longer have room.
Needs more spacing between the fan and grills on the bottom (if you're installing fans in that location.
Other Thoughts: Aside from the lack of hard drive space (which I only use for an ssd and seagate 2.5 hybrid drive) the bottom fan mounting is the only other annoyance I have.
It has spacers (if they're even worth calling that) are foam around the fan screw holes. Keep in mind when you tighten them they will squish and you will likely hear your fan rattling away.
To fix this, there are rubber spacers/washers that are on the bottom for mounting smaller fans or radiators I presume. You can use two on each fan to space out the fan and the grill. Just put them in the two cut-outs that line up with the outer shell of the fan. Just don't tighten them too tight and you're set to go.
I do wish the case was a little smaller but once you realize how much this smaller case will hold, you'll find its a great investment.
For anyone looking for a small to mid size case, this would be it.
This review is from: Sony PlayStation Vita 3G/WiFi Handheld Gaming System
Pros: Great looking display
Controls work very well
Remote Play on PS4 is awesome, you can play your PS4 away from home (as long as you have an internet connection)
Good choice of games
Ok battery life for constant gaming. The graphics are better on this system than others while for instance the Nintendo 3DSXL has better battery life.
Cons: May leave adult hands a little cramped after a few hours of playing
Battery life isn't bad but could be better
No SMS (text messaging)
No storage card (why I took an egg off) so you cannot install any games until you get one.
Remote play for the PS4 does require some networking knowledge or some googling to get working properly.
Other Thoughts: I plan to use this just for remote play more than anything.
It works great on the same network as the PS4. You can use it to remotely play or as a controller (similar to the wii u) There is little to setup if you plan to only use it in your home.
To use Remote Play over the internet, you need to give your PS4 a Static IP, you can then either use port forwarding, or in my case you can put your PS4 in a DMZ (Your router may or may not have this function).
DMZ is usually on the more expensive routers ($70 and up).
Once you have the setup correct, you'll be very impressed with how well it works. I
**It is important to note when connecting to your PS4 over the internet with your PS Vita, it does need a reasonable amount of bandwidth. I haven't tested it at Panera for instance but it may be a bit tougher to play there.
I would imagine 768k or .76Mbps download when remotely connecting is not fast enough.
