Pros: Really fast cards, and the ability to use Shadow Play is a great addition. I upgraded from 480gtx-Sli to 780gtx-Sli and there is an incredible difference to say the least. Also quiet cards and run much cooler than my previous.
Cons: None really. People say price but you certainly get what you pay for and these are 100% worth it!
Other Thoughts: SLI with these and I should be good for at least 3 years. Unless I get GFX card envy again.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: THRUSTMASTER Hotas Warthog Hotas Warthog Joystick
Pros: This throttle and stick combo are the best I have every owned. I have gone through several Hotas and Thrustmaster combo's in the past. This is one is in a league of it's own. The detail and feel of the stick are outstanding! I use this setup with DCS: A-10, TrackIR 5, and 3 24' monitors. It is such an experience and really give the "Simulator" the title it deserves.
Cons: I honestly don't have many other than the price. But the price is absolutely justified once you use it in DCS.
Other Thoughts: This setup is not for arcade style games or casual flight sim users. Not really a con but a heads up to someone who wants to buy it for those reasons. You would be wasting money on setup you prob won't use 100%. Not to say you shouldn't but it just seems like a waste.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Thermaltake A1681 AquariusIII External Liquid Cooling System
Pros: It worked for about 5 months, the temps were better than air cooled but only when the ambients were low in my room. It looked cool...
Cons: The unit leaks a lot, it also needs to be refilled constantly. Really noisy at fans at full speed. There are 2 different types of metal in the unit, and anyone who has read up on water cooling knows what happens.... it happened to this unit too. I heard a crackling coming from my speakers even though the computer was off. I looked inside my PC to find leaking water falling onto my X-Fi.. I looked into the problem further to find the corrosion from the 2 different metals had clogged the entry to the units CPU block. Ripped it all out.. and went back to air. It now makes a great addition to abandoned computer parts.. an expensive one at that.
Other Thoughts: Its a good entry level cooler at best, when its working. You may want to look into a better/different CPU block as the one included was 3rd rate. Make sure you don't mix metals. It says to test the unit and seals before connecting it to your computer.. but in my case that was impossible as the unit only turns on once you have connected it to the Mobo. I am sure someone has a work-around for that though. I was too frustrated with the installation to figure out how to do it.READ FULL REVIEW
