MSI Radeon R9 290X GAMING 4GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Runs the games I am currently playing on max settings smoothly(no stutter) at 1080p with decent framerates. FarCry 4, BF 4, and Crysis 3, which I had but never played before. I am using the fairly new Omega drivers. from AMD.

Cons: The gaming app does not work correctly for me. It would not go from 1030mhz to 1040 mhz. I checked the config file and 1040mhz was not even in the profile. I could not add it to the profile. This was the gaming app on the disk . The latest from MSI would not even load. Kept getting does not support this application error.

Other Thoughts: I don't think 10mhz would make much of a difference anyways. This card runs fine at 1030mhz which is the default setting at load. Temps are reasonable 74c was the max I recorded, in a warm room. That was while playing Crysis 3. Max was 65c playing BF 4

MSI afterburner works fine. I am using the newest version. Just using it for framerate and temp monitoring, though I'm sure at some point I will record some gameplay.

I have no intention on overclocking this card. I may however buy a second one for crossfire at a later date. At this point I still give it 5 eggs as I really don't care that the gaming app did not work for me correctly.

Corsair H1500 USB Connector Circumaural Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset

5 out of 5 eggs Gamers Delight 12/05/2014

This review is from: Corsair H1500 USB Connector Circumaural Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset

Pros: Just received this yesterday. Played a 12 hour BF4 marathon. Very comfortable.

This is my first try with a 7.1 headset. I was amazed how pinpoint the directional is. Really like the bing badda booms.

According to my friends on teamspeak, the microphone comes through crystal clear.

Played a little Pink Floyd to check out the music end. Sounds great.
Rented a HD movie from another site to see how they sound and they sound great.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Have not messed with the EQ settings yet. I'm sure i will for music. Pretty satisfied for gaming and movies.

Downloading the software from Corsair was easy. did it right after i ordered the headset.
