Pros: - Hybrid setting
- VERY QUIET!
- 80 PLUS PLATINUM RATING!
Cons: - Can't see PSU branding when fan exhaust is facing down
- Might have trouble powering up a 3rd GPU due to lack of available cables. I have a Rampage IV Extreme and I needed one of the PCI-E cables to juice up the PCI-E lane socket on the board. There are 4 possible PCI-E cables on the PSU but I had to use 2 of them on the motherboard for overclocking. This is a real downer for me because I got this PSU for the purposes of attempting a 3-way SLI overclocking push by taking advantage of the 80 PLUS Plat. Getting another one of these PSU's just to power the GPU's would be overkill... - 1 Egg
Other Thoughts: I bought this from another reseller since Newegg sold out and took too long to restock. I needed a PSU that was over 850W but wanted more bang for my buck. Corsair gold rated Enthusiast series was overpriced for me. I was excited to see that SeaSonic recently released a platinum rated PSU priced just right.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair HS1 USB Connector Circumaural Headset
Pros: Solid headset. My cat got caught tangled in the wires once, and I chased her all around the apartment to get the headset off her.
Mic and headset are very easy to start using. Had no problems setting them up with Ventrillo & Skype.
Sound worked as advertised
Cons: USB version so not compatible with premium soundcards.
Also moderate to heavy head sweaters beware! The earpads, as spongy as it is, will soak up any sweat and oil you produce while under extended use. I am a very OCD hygenic person, but I'm a bit embarassed to say the pads started developing an odor from all the sponging. Since they aren't the traditional leather/pleather/etc. you cannot simply clean them with an alcohol pad. Some of the lint from my hair product got on them and I had to use a lint brush for 15-20 minutes of a time to clean them off. Used Febreeze to freshen the scent up but that's not right...
Other Thoughts: There is a non-USB version if you are a soundcard user. Other than the spongy earpads, it's a great headset and I still use them. However since I'm growing tired of cleaning them up once a week, I'm currently looking for alternatives.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Overclocks well and easily. Currently have it at
DRAM Freq - 800.5MHz
FSB:DRAM - 2:12
Timing - 11-11-11-29
on my EVGA P55 Classified 200. You have to manually set these up in BIOS, otherwise it will likely default to lower settings for initial COMPATIBILITY purposes.
Comes with a decent Airflow cooling fans.
Cons: Clips on the fan can slide of the DIMM retention clips if you tip over case or move it in such a way that would cause it to come off. No biggie, just take it off if you are going to move your case around (ie. lan party). I'm not sure you can really blame the Corsair for that since all DIMM retention clips were made in such a fashion that would have it so.
Other than that, I wish the color was red to match my motherboard, but they save reserve that color for their pricier Dominator GT's.
Other Thoughts: Even w/o the Airflow cooling fans, I think the set is a good value. I might have to take mine off to make room for the water cooling tubes coming from my CPU water block later. At my current settings, I don't think the ram gets that hot to worry about. I have other case fans blowing in the direction of their heat sinks anyways.READ FULL REVIEW
