Pros: - Cheaper than O8G
- Runs very cool
- Solid overclocking
Cons: - GPU Tweak II
- DVI Display Problem
Other Thoughts: I was able to bring my card up to 2114MHz/5508MHz while maintaining 68C using EVGA's software. GPU Tweak could never bring the card above 2062MHz/5508MHz for some reason.
Something is wrong with my DVI port as my monitor will have produce random red pixels on blacks. Tried using different cables, but the problem remained. Put my 780 TI back in the computer and problem went away. Solved the problem by switching to DisplayPort.
Pros: - Minimal IPS Glow
- No Backlight Bleed
- G-sync simple to enable (Nvidia program detected monitor and walked me through the process)
- Able to get 100Hz
Cons: - On-screen Display (OSD) with buttons doesn't work well
- Doesn't ship at 100Hz
This review is from: NZXT HUE+ Smart RGB Color Changing Digitally Controlled LED PC Lighting
Pros: - 4 lighting strips included
- Strips are held with magnets (decent strength) and/or adhesive
- Easy to use software
- NZXT Customer Service
Cons: - 1 light strip had 3 bad LEDs (2 blue & 1 green)
- Controller LED (white only and always on)
Other Thoughts: I was able to use just the magnets to hold the strips in-place, though they may shift if I transported the case. If I were concerned or attaching to plastic there is adhesive.
Software is easy to use and is supported with frequent updates. These updates from what I have noticed are mostly new lighting options. The CAM software does report my CPU temperature higher (~8-12°C) than other monitors.
I had one strip with 3 bad LEDs, but contacting NZXT for replacement was quick and painless. Their customer service got back to me within 8 hours of submitting my claim, and resolved the issue immediately. I was very satisfied by this experience despite having a problem.
The controller unfortunately has a fairly bright LED that is always on. Not only is it always on but it is only white. I consider this a con even though it is not an issue in my build (Mastercase Pro 5). I placed the controller in the top slot of the drive tray in the bottom compartment. The location makes the controller and light almost invisible.
Update: I bought a second kit for wife's build and all the LEDs worked.
