Pros: Extremely hard working
Stays very cold
Cons: Spending 500+ bucks is not in everyone's budget.
MSI does not have the upgrade feature that EVGA has available, and their customer service cant compete with EVGA's either.
Other Thoughts: I spent a good amount of time trying to decide between the GTX 780 and the R9 290. I got this card on sale for 450 dollars not to long ago. I am glad I got this card. It stays colder then the 290 and I overclocked it to be just under the titan's clocks/temp range. The card runs cold and is really easy to overclock. The afterburner software is really easy to use and enables you to test on the fly.
If you are deciding between this card and a R9 290, keep your case cool, and kick some %^* with MSI.
Pros: Great headset, great sound, and great quality.
Holds a long charge, and reaches far from the pc.
Works in my USB 4 slots.
Cons: Ear cups are not to deep.
Confusing charging system.
Other Thoughts: The first pair I got seemed to not charge. The support website sound blaster has is not detailed and some of the pictures do not match the more recent changed they have made to thier UI. The charge indicator on the headset and on the software are not what the manual indicates. The headset came fully charged, and apon turing the headset off it would say that the headset is out of battery, but while charging and on the icon showed it as just plugged in, and no charge symbol.
Attempted to update the firmware and failed.
Got the new headset and thought it had the same problem, updated the firmware via Glomgore's instructions and it worked flawlessly.
When the headset is off, it will show it has no charge, and the charge icon only shows it as plugged in, very confusing.
Pros: Great sound. Great bass and treble. I find the headset very comfortable. I have short to no hair, so the head band doesn't "Noogie" me like others complain of.
Mic quality is good.
I like the detachable pieces headset idea, very versatile.
Cons: Sending back my first pair tomorrow morning. The first set I got would not charge, and (upon creative labs suggestions) after attempting a firmware update, the headphones became nothing but plastic ear warmers. Of course, newegg to the rescue. Newegg never lets me down, expedited my shipping at no cost, and pays for me to send the item to them.... cant beat that. Customer service reps are always nice, and oh, they SPEAK ENGLISH! Will update when I get a working pair. 1 egg until then.
The Headphones run hot, little to no ventilation leaves your ears really warm.
