This review is from: Logitech G910 Orion Spark RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
Pros: Feels good to type one, the Mechanical switches are noticeable but not noisy. I like the chunky sound of typing on it. Concave keys mean my fingers don't slip off them too easily so I make less typos. The lighting is very customizable, The G keys are useful. Works just fine with Windows 10 after a software and firmware update. Arx software turns your phone into a color LCD display for Game tracking and system stats.
Cons: Not enough G Keys, I still miss my G15. No built-in LCD display. Arx Dock wants you to mount your phone vertically which is kinda silly because it puts it in the way of the monitor however you don't have to use the dock, the software will work just fine with the phone laying down next to your keyboard. The only real con I have is the Macro-switching keys on the upper left are a tad finicky, I have to push them several times to get them to register they've been pressed. Sometimes the Logitech G software will crash for no reason and close but I think that's my Anti-virus not playing nice with it because after disabling the AV the G software behaves.
Other Thoughts: On the Windows 10 compatibility, you have to update the Logitech G software and also the keyboard's firmware when you plug it in. Works fine after that.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Swissgear IBEX 17" GA-7316-06F00 Laptop Computer Backpack
Pros: Wow, where do I start? It's got lots of pockets and compartments, has held up pretty good over the years, nothing has broken off or came undone on the construction, the top handle is really sturdy. Again, pockets out the wazoo, I have compartments within compartments to hide small things like flash drives and external USB 3.0 drives. Love the Headphone routing hole although I don't use it much. The Side mesh pockets hold water bottles ok, they don't slip out too easily. When I put it on it's mostly comfortable and doesn't shift around too much. Fits a 15" laptop just fine, haven't tested it with a 17" one yet. The internal padding for the laptop is good, feels like it holds the laptop pretty secure and safe. I love the internal mesh pouch, that's where I keep my power cords for my laptop charging.
Oh and I love the design and color, It was one of the reasons it caught my eye.
Cons: Too much in the backpack can make it uncomfortable on your back but that's an issue that can be easily solved by not putting too much stuff in it. I have a few balance issues when sitting it down, but again, rectified by not putting too much in one compartment. The Air flow design doesn't quite work when you're a heavy set person like me, you still sweat when wearing it and you do sometimes have to re-adjust the straps occasionally.
Other Thoughts: Would like to get a bigger laptop to see if I have any issues with fitting it in my bag like others have stated. Swiss Gear made this Laptop backpack to last. And thank goodness too because I have used it a lot.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper N520 - CPU Cooler with Copper Base and 5 Heatpipes
Pros: Purchased on (06/27/2010)
It's size and dimensions makes sure it fits even in a Mid-ATX case. It's not the biggest or best tower HSF out there but it gets the job done even on a Hexa-Core Phenom II 1090T BE. In a Full size ATX case you won't have any clearance problems. I have it mounted in a Thermaltake Spedo case and still have lots of room. The Dual 92mm fans keep air flowing through the fins at a decent rate without making much noise. I'm not going to go over specifications since you should just look at the "Details" tab. It will keep your CPU temps manageable but there are much better solutions.
Cons: Mounting can be a hassle if your case doesn't have a opening for accessing the CPU mounting holes. The Spedo has one but the hole is not over the CPU so you still have to remove the motherboard to mount.
The thermal compound that's included is only enough for one installation. You might be able to get 2 out of it. Bottom line though: You're better off using IC Diamond or AS or whatever TIM you like as you'll most likely get more applications out of it. Cleaning ca be a bit of a pain. And no finger guards on the fans so make sure your system is off before cleaning.
Also if one fan dies (hasn't happened yet in the 3-4 years I've had it) there aren't many suitable replacements. Cooler Master does sell 92mm fans but they don't look nearly as nice as the ones on this cooler.
Other Thoughts: Ambient Room Temp (best scenario) 67F in the summer 75F in the winter.
Phenom II 1090T BE
86F ~ 96F Idle
99F ~ 110F Full bore.
