This review is from: Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red LED - Cherry MX Red Switches
Pros: Thanks to the red mx switch it's ridiculously sensitive.
This also makes reaching the actuation point very easy.
Does NOT have any mushy feel when typing.
Great back-lighting with decently varied levels.
Textured wasd/arrow keys are nice ONLY if you can use them well, I'm not a giant fan.
Dedicated multimedia keys/lighting/volume rocker.
No need to hold down an FN key combo to use such features.
Amazing braided cable that has built in ps/2 support to usb so you get full N-key rollover support without having to use a ps/2 port.
Audio/usb port if you actually need them, not needed at all but nice to have if you're a bit lazy or tight on space.
Average performance had an ever so slight increase over using blue key switches. Probably placebo affect because of not having tactile feedback making it feel a little more smooth in games.
Cons: Typing was noticeably worse when switching from blue mx keys.
No tactile feed back whatsoever.(not much of a con because reds are supposed to NOT have feedback)
No macro keys(again this board isn't meant to have that but should be noted)
Other Thoughts: First cherry red mx keyboard, very pleased with my testing it out.
Still gonna stick to blue/browns from now on for daily/gaming use but this keyboard is pretty darn amazing.
Im still a fan of tactile feed back honestly, and I believe it truly does help when typing/gaming. Only thing I'm envious of is the 45g of actuation force with reds compared to 55 and 60 for browns/blues respectively.
It is actually slightly noticeable to the touch.
All in all I'd definitively recommend reds to gamers switching from membrane to mechanical.
This review is from: APEVIA CF20SL-UBL 200mm Case Fan
Pros: Pretty easy to install.
Moves more air than 2x 120mm high CFM fans
Bright blue LEDs.
Cons: A little bit of a flex, but same as all other clear plastic fans.
Wiring seems to be cheaply glued on(docking egg for this, it's visible) But still stable on the fan and doesn't move.
Not actual UV lighting as I expected by reading reviews, but a really nice bright blue not that much of a con but should be stated somewhere.
Other Thoughts: Replaced my old front intake and top exhaust which both had 2x 120mm fans with two of these
Besides these being MUCH quieter, they actually move more air and cool better.
Not too much only about 1-2c cooler on my internals with the same ambient temps but the noise factor is magical.
There IS some flex though with these, as with all clear plastic fans. Though I have to say they're pretty robust but as always don't force things too much with these.
Also the LEDs change brightness according to how much power is being supplied to them, so Im running them at both 800rpm and they're very bright.
Gotta say the lighting is real nice.
All in all couldn't ask more for $15 a piece.
