Corsair Raptor HS40 USB Connector Circumaural 7.1 Gaming Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs How in the heck?! 05/16/2015

This review is from: Corsair Raptor HS40 USB Connector Circumaural 7.1 Gaming Headset

Pros: Great sound
Awesome fit
Push-button controls, as opposed to the potentiometer control or sliding switch which get rusty when they're not moved around.

Cons: None that I'm physically aware of, apart from not being able to curve the microphone close to my face.

Other Thoughts: This obviously does not have a sound card. Basically what you have is the complete headset with an inline controller, with a retractable microphone, and that's it.
Though I had to RMA a pair of headphones because the computer didn't recognize it the first time. As it turned out, the first pair of headphones had a major cable fault that shorted out the USB ports and caused them to stop working until the headphones were unplugged.
Although, I have to ask, how in the heck do you get 7.1 sound through a pair of 40mm drivers anyway? Other than having to install the software, I still don't get the concept.

Rosewill Quark-650, Quark Series 650W Full Modular Power Supply with LED Indicator, 80Plus Platinum Certified, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready, SLI & Crossfire Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Provides the effective power-delivery I need in a more-modular design, should I ever decide to get a more-powerful GPU. 80-PLUS Platinum means that my computer can be up to 92% efficient, especially when the computer is not in use.

Cons: Is it supposed to make that odd ticking sound when you turn your machine on or off?

Other Thoughts: I wasn't able to see much of a difference in electricity use--the power company keeps on raising my rates. I know some time last month my electric bill was a bit cheaper.
This PSU replaces an older 550w PSU that's also stamped as "80-Plus certified", but at its most basic level; it didn't say whether it was bronze, silver, gold or Platinum-certified.

Cooler Master GeminII M4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

3 out of 5 eggs Easy to install, but Blocked a Connector! 04/14/2015

This review is from: Cooler Master GeminII M4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: The easy install kit was simple! I just identified my socket type and went with the flow. I had that thing on there in 30 minutes' time. Plus the slim profile isn't as bulky like the last kit I ordered.

Cons: I don't know why they chose a 120mm surface area as opposed to 80mm, because when it went down to hooking the motherboard and everything else back up, I had to take the fan straight off just to get the 4+4 connector hooked up. This still blocks some of your RAM sockets as well. It took me 30 minutes to get the fan put back on due to the fact they had to use thin, steel wires rather than screws.

Other Thoughts: I might not have tested idle and load cooling performance yet, but I want to be double-sure I applied just the right amount of thermal paste. The fan design isn't all that bad, but I wasn't expecting it to run that much more quieter than any cooler on the market.
