Pros: Small desktop footprint
Cons: Not back lit
No option to turn off the annoying brand name emblem.
Died in less than 1 year
Other Thoughts: This is the 2nd Razer product that I've owned that has failed completely inside of one year. All told they have soaked me for 220 bucks. I'll never buy from them again. Quality is NOT something they are interested in. They go for looks and name branding alone.
I hooked up my ancient Logitech G11 and it's working like a champ. It has more than 5 years of heavy FPS and MMO use with nary a problem... except it's as big as an air craft carrier.
Pros: It fits in my case?
Cons: It's not Corsair ... NEVER stray from good, reputable name brands. It always bites you in the back side.
This started crashing about 3 months into it's use. I built a complete system from the ground up and cut a corner here ( based on reviews which, sadly, seem to have been by people who wrote the review the moment they installed it )
When this heats up it crashes randomly. My system is running SLI on water. The GPUs are a frosty 26c under load even in summer. The CPU is also on water and runs frosty as well. After many crashes I finally changed out the PSU for my old corsair and what do ya know? The crashes went away. The 650w Corsair is probably running at it's limit with the SLI and water pumps and STILL it performs perfectly.
No power plug needed
Runs cool - exhausts to the rear
Short card overall
2 gigs for this price point is excellent
Low power consumption
Other Thoughts: I bought this with the intent to use it as a dedicated physX card. In this capacity it is flawless. My personal FPS have increase 10 or more on ultra high graphics settings ( WoW - Borderlands 2 - GW2 - Neverwinter - A TON of games that can't utilize the power of my main GPU yet still managed to run better regardless )
My new rig was built with low power consumption and cool temps in mind. It is as follows for purposes of a complete review as to the system it is used in.
