Pros: Extremely fast after overclocking, and it overclocks well. Mine is at 4.7 Ghz on a CM TPC 812 air cooler at around 1.287 volts. Runs cool during gaming at 60-70 degrees. I think I'm lucky, however, as these usually run hot due to the stock thermal paste under the lid. I'll be watercooling soon so I anticipate even better speeds.
I ran BF3 at 5760x1080 on 2 GTX 670s on ultra above 60FPS for sure and this thing did wonders by keeping up.
Cons: TIM under lid instead of solder.
Other Thoughts: Can de-lid to get better temps, but its risky so I haven't done it. Upgraded froman i 7 860, huge ddifference at stock, but especially after overclocking. Overclocking this thing is super easy too.
I'm also skipping Haswell, obviously, and not sure if I'll even need the next tick/tock it!
Pros: DVI colors are very sharp (hdmi colors are bad but can be fixed). Thin bezels. great price when I bought. No dead pixels. Light. Bright. 90 degree power connector is nice.
Cons: One monitor of the 2 had a white line an inch thick and went vertically. Newegg replaced completely free and was fast and seamless.
Blue lights for power are kinda bright in complete darknes.
HDMI colors are dull, but I.hear this can be fixed by changing off of RGB?
Other Thoughts: I have a Samsung 120hz 23" monitor with thin bezels and needed two 60hz monitors for the sides to complete the nvidia surround setup as I can't run 5760x1080 at 120fps anyway. I'm very happy with these monitors and they've been great for a whole year. Would buy again and I do recommend them.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Kingston HyperX Edition Steelseries Siberia v2 Headset
Pros: Very comfortable. This was one of the main reasons I went with these. I got them on sale for a good price also.
I sometimes wear glasses when gaming so I wanted a pair that were comfortable.
Sound is very clear for gaming. Music it is decent. I'm not that picky about the sound as long as it is good. This pair has good sound. I have heard better, but those were $160.
Design allows for them to easily be hung on a hook or something to keep off of the desk.
Microphone is bendable and allowed to be pushed in. Pretty cool.
Cons: Big and probably unattractive/geeky =)
Other Thoughts: USB version is probably better, but a lot more money. I was just trying to get a decent pair around $50 that were comfortable and sounded good. I'm very glad I bought these.
A friend was at a small LAN with me 2 weeks ago and hated his. I had him try mine. He ran to the nearest store right after and bought them for the rest of the LAN lol.
