This review is from: Corsair Gaming MM200 Mouse Mat - Standard Edition
Pros: Nice quality
Not stupidly expensive.
Cons: Edges appear to be frayed a tad, but hasn't gotten worse over time.
Other Thoughts: Not really much to say here, another solid product from Corsair.
Not really a fan of the new logo, seems a bit 1990s tribal tatto-ish. (nothing was wrong with the 3 sails guys, please go back to that)
The pad itself is a really no frills, Meat & potatoes design. (I LOVE IT) Stays flat and stays put, even though it spent a good amount of time rolled up in a tube. Tracking is smooth and consistent on my high dpi mice.
Cloth materials don't collect condensation from my palm like the harder plastic and metal mouse pads do. This always caused me to have to re-position my hand mid game.
Cant go wrong here. Solid materials, reasonable price.
Pros: Looks AWESOME
runs cool even at 2400Mhz
packaging was really smashed up.
Other Thoughts: Been Using this RAM for a month now. Not a single hiccup paired up with a 4790k on a Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD5H. Passed memtest on multiple passes with XMP enabled, running at advertised Speed/Timings and voltages.
Not much to say here. The most important thing for RAM is stability. Which this kit has. Just set the XMP to "enabled" in the BIOS and you are good to go!
The heatsink design is Very top notch an really goes with my current build's color theme. The LED lights are a nice touch but they are very much on the "warmer" side of white (actually going into the yellow side of color), while everything else in my build has a "cool" white glow. Not a huge deal but I guess you get to be nit picky at this price point ehh?
I understand this is a premium product but I just cant get past the price.... I mean $150 for 8GB... really? Other 8GB 2400Mhz kits Start around $60 and they even have lower timings. Thats almost $100 difference, for what? Maybe Klevv has a more Redundant QC and Binning process for these chips Vs the normal methods? really couldn't say for sure.
Either way this is an Awesome kit of RAM. Stable, killer looks, Runs cool at rated specs. Cant go wrong if you got the extra cash to burn!
This review is from: Corsair Hydro Series™ H80i GT High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
Pros: Keeps my 4790k cool at lowest pump speed setting
Cons: Horrible PUMP NOISE.... AGAIN!
Other Thoughts: This is an updated review to my 1st unit which had very loud pump noise.
I actually wanted to return this Unit for a refund and take that money and go buy an 1150 socket water block to fit my old Custom Built water cooling set up I had on my 775 setup, but I waited too long and the store I bought it from would not issue a refund (stupid me...). So I went on Corsairs forum to see what my options were. Searches were showing many threads that the H80i GT is well documented for having an issue with loud pump noise. On one of the threads a Corsair admin was assuring members that Corsairs RMA dept. was well aware of the situation and if you were to RMA a H80i GT unit stating it had pump noise, they would personally inspect the unit they send back out to you and make sure is wasn't one of the faulty units with loud pump noise. AWESOME, right!? Wrong.... The unit I got back has EXACTLY the same issue. when I received it, It was new in a sealed box. So I assume they never actually checked this one before they sent it out. super...
Ive had it installed regardless for a few weeks now because I had some real work to catch up on (rendering video) and the stock heatsink wouldn't keep my CPU below 85c under load at stock clocks. Over this period of time the H80iGT has kept my CPU cool (under 70c) at 100% load with an ambient temp of 72f on the absolute lowest speed setting the pump will operate at. so with that in mind it seems to be performing well but for how long? I LOVE to see how this this preforms at normal pump speed If I can get my hand on one that wasn't faulty.
I will be contacting Corsair for a 2nd RMA soon after I get this work done and can go back to the stock cooler while I wait for the RMA process.
