This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-W1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket
Pros: I heard when it works it keeps a graphics card cool
Cons: The install was the biggest pain I've ever had, and I've done custom water cooling before.
I can see my H90 copper baseplate firmly attached and the temperatures still SKYROCKET to 60 degrees under ZERO load. Upon any load, it goes up to 80 degrees and I have to shut it down before my card overheats.
Other Thoughts: I want to submit a ticket or claim and NZXT seems to not like me entering the correct captcha phrases so I can't even do that. I reinstalled the stock cooler on my GTX 680 and it was back again to regular temps. I reinstalled the G10 and again the temperatures were out of control high. Even putting a copper shim, thinking there might be something holding the baseplate back, into the fray didn't help matters. NZXT support is no where to be found and this is my second and frankly last NZXT product I will ever buy or recommend. DO NOT GET THIS. Custom watercool or leave it alone...and to be frank...leaving it alone is probably best.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Lots of features for security and networking.
High power, exchangable, external antennas (can be replaced with amplified higher power antennas but why bother really.
Mindblowing range in not just distance, but also through several walls
Cons: It's not exactly consumer friendly, in terms of setup. There's so many features, it's hard to get started. And in the middle of everything, the router stopped connecting to my pc. I was left connecting through my tablet and finish the job that way.
Other Thoughts: I think most people who one-egg engenius products just quit too early in the setup procedure. It's a nice way of saying they aren't capable of navigating the setup page...or rather pages. I spent over an hour fully customizing mine. I wanted to setup a different name and password and it seemed to take forever until I realized saving the settings wasn't enough. I had to load them as well. It's hard to know exactly what to do without any kind of booklet manual. Even the CD manual wasn't useful when I was trying to figure out how to set this thing up. But eventually it worked and I'm glad I stuck with it. I live on the 6th floor of a condo building. Thick concrete walls and such. My chromecast wasn't working in the next room...very little connection. Cloud based movies over wifi was absolutely impossible even in 480i. But now the entire 1200 sq ft unit is covered in 30mbps wifi. I was even connected in the elevator and outside on the street in my car. I went two blocks down and still connected (barely at that point). Simply put, this is the last router I was will buy. I'm curious to see what amplified antennas would do to this connectivity. But for now...I'm extremely happy with the results. So much so that I don't care what hassles the set up was. Worth every second to enjoy steady and fast wifi. Business management, or home use...this AP will get the job done.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAZER BlackWidow Chroma RZ03-01220200-R3U1 USB Wired Gaming RGB Mechanical Keyboard
Pros: Well lit
Great range of colors
Mechanical keys, see below though
Matte finish that feels nice and doesn't leave finger prints easy
High actuation point
Cons: Louder than any cherry mx blue keys. The mechanical keys clink, clank, and boing upon release. I can't stop hearing hearing it.
Software is in its infancy. Other companies have more customization by a far wide margin.
Other Thoughts: It types. But there is a metal clang, clung, clink noise with every release. It makes it louder than my old Blackwidow with blue switches and FAR more annoying. If you have headsets on I'm sure you won't mind. But the reason why I love cherry mx switches is because they are refined and tested in sound chambers for decibal range and standardization. I don't know if only mean makes this incessant, ear drum puncturing noise, but if I didn't use it for gaming, I'd return it. Typing this review is unbearable with the clunk clunk clunk with every spacebar and anything on the right hand side. But something with Cherry MX switches and Razer...if you're reading this, don't be so hungry that you have to use a cheap in house brand switch. Go back to Cherry switches. I loved my old black widow but I will probably return this for a keyboard with Cherry switches.READ FULL REVIEW
