Corsair Gaming K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red LED - Cherry MX Red Switches
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Corsaig Gaming K70 keyboard 03/31/2015

This review is from: Corsair Gaming K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red LED - Cherry MX Red Switches

Pros: For all practical matters, this is a modern version of the original IBM pc keyboards. That is a mechanical, clicky keyboard meant for high speed word processing. Tactile feedback and noise allow word processing typists to be more productive. But today, gamers feel the need for this type of keyboard to accomplish their important gaming needs. All of my keys work well, none stick.

Cons: This is essentially a replacement for the original IBM keyboards I loved before cost cutting made us all type on membrane keyboards that are mush. There are no cons on the keyboard I received.

Other Thoughts: Compared to the original IBM keyboards, this is black, not beige, has red LED illumination of the keys in 3 levels, a USB port, some multimedia keys and volume control which I don't use and a textured space bar. It also has a wrist rest. When it goes on sale again, I am buying another one.

3 out of 5 eggs Lacks universal SATA compatibility 08/22/2014

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, excellent price point, highly reliable, works great with SATA III controllers, OS X 10.8 and 10.9.4 compatible. 4K platter format can make Chimera hiccup. Easy fix available for direct booting.

Cons: Not compatible with Gigabyte GA-EP43-UD3L SATA II controller. After making the Acronis image onto the drive, the original boot drive was replaced with this new SSD. System booted, but then began halts, freezes, write cache errors and all sorts of compatibility problems between this drive (Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit, Q9650 cpu) and the OS and motherboard. Tried all sorts or tricks with BIOS and in Windows to get it to behave, but it did not. Only choice was to remove this drive and replace with original mechanical drive. Wound up upgrading from old WD blue 1TB to WD RE4 1TB and system hums.

Other Thoughts: Drive works perfectly in GA-Z77X-UD5H SATA 3 port running OS X 10.9.4.

Three stars for lack of SATA 2 compatibility with P43 chipset.

Cooler Master SickleFlow 120 - Sleeve Bearing 120mm Red LED Silent Fan for Computer Cases, CPU Coolers, and Radiators
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Lots of airflow. Suitable for use with liquid cooling next to radiator, at back of case, side of case or top exhaust.

Cons: NONE.

Other Thoughts: This is the powerful 0.37 amp model fan. It blows hard and a lot of air so it makes more noise at full speed. You can probably control speed if plugged into motherboard.
Cooler Master also makes a less powerful 0.16 amp fan which moves less air and makes less noise. I think people do not understand the difference between the 2 choices. The 0.16 amp fan usually comes pre-installed in the case while the 0.37 amp fan comes with the liquid coolers or available separately.

Know what to buy and you won't be dissapointed.
