Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Pretty much required upgrade from stock 10/20/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: Keeps my i7-3770k from bluescreening under any amount of stress.

Cons: Will not support any overclocking with my processor. It's pretty much at its limit in room temperature air, CPU temps at 70ish C. Bad things start happening at 75C.

Other Thoughts: Without this, I wouldn't be able to max out my processor for any length of time. It's essential for any CPU-limited application I use.

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

2 out of 5 eggs Major flaws, but it does work. 06/13/2014

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

Pros: Solid construction, not as loud as some mechanical keyboards. Looks nice. It works, which is the only reason I give it any eggs.

Cons: LEDs started dying not long after I got it. 5 are completely dead and maybe a dozen more are dimming. That's just not acceptable in a $100+ keyboard. It's either bad quality control or bad design. The lighting is badly done to begin with, for example the numbers are dim but the symbols above them on the same keys are bright.

Other Thoughts: The USB cable is stupidly over engineered. It looks like it's designed to run 200' alongside a power main, not 4 feet across my desk. It's 1/4" thick and very stiff. If you put force on it near the plug it would happily pry the USB jack off the motherboard. I would be afraid to use it with a laptop.

It's clearly hobbyist grade, flashy and feature heavy but low quality and badly designed.

ASUS GTX660 TI-DC2O-2GD5 G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Seems like a great card. Quiet, makes my i7-3770k the weak point of the system, looks and feels really high quality. Played everything I threw at it without any trouble.

Cons: After 2 weeks I started getting BSODs. Error code 116, unrecoverable video card timeout. I ruled out every other cause, and returned the card. Going to replace it with the TOP version of the same thing and hope for better luck this time.

Other Thoughts: That 1 egg rating hurts me more than it hurts ASUS.
