This review is from: Creative Inspire T10 10 Watts RMS 2.0 Speaker System
Pros: - Sound is crisp and clear
- No buzzing even when turned up to the max
- Sleek and modern looking
Cons: None really
Other Thoughts: Funny story though: one day a fruit fly landed on the plastic mesh, I tried getting it with a tissue but ended up pushing it inside the speaker mesh covering lol. It couldn't get out by itself and I didn't want anything dying inside my speakers... So I used compressed air to blow it around and eventually out of the mesh cover. Needless to say it was quite near death and twitching after it finally got blown out onto my desk. I then proceeded to perform the kleenex fatality move to end its miserable existence. The end.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Runs fast, up to 3.8ghz without the need for a manual o/c.
Cons: My idle temps run about 40c with an H80i and arctic silver 5. This is about 10c hotter than my last build (i5-3570k with an air cooler). Really bummed out but I try not to let it go full load (80c) very often. Hopefully it's just the summer weather that's the cause of this.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Overclockable
- Runs a cool 30c idle and 50c gaming
- Very quiet (see other thoughts)
- Achieved 6600-6700 3DMark (2013) scores on a 1040/1575 o/c.
Cons: - A little long for my case (no innuendo intended)
- Annoying rattling noise when using custom fan curve on MSI afterburner (this is solved by just manually changing fan speed)
Other Thoughts: I guess I got a pretty average card since I was not able to push the core speed past 1060 without crashing. Still I believe this performance puts it above a GTX 670 stock so no complaints there.
I was deciding between this and the Vapor X which costs about $30 more - I'm glad I chose this because cooling has not been a problem at all. Saved myself 30 bucks baby!
