EVGA 04G-P4-3768-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 FTW 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card w/ EVGA ACX Cooler - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Using this in an SLI setup on an 850W Corsair PSU. Works perfectly

Cons: None, none at all.

Other Thoughts: EVGA as a company is awesome. I've had only one issue with them in 7 years. I had a video card with a warped heatsink that caused a premature failure of a RAM module. The RMA was simple and quick. EVGA loves the community and I have zero problems suggesting their products.

If you have a choice between EVGA and someone else with all else being equal, go EVGA.

Corsair H1500 USB Connector Circumaural Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset

3 out of 5 eggs Good Heaset 01/19/2015

This review is from: Corsair H1500 USB Connector Circumaural Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset

Pros: I have a large head and these have a comfortable fit and weight. I was able to use them 10+ hours at a LAN event without fatigue. The mic sounds great in Mumble and Teamspeak. The padding quality feels like it is going to last years.The 7.1 works great in TF2, and audio in Elite Dangerous is excellent.

Cons: There are two blinking LEDs on the cord located on the volume and mute buttons. THEY ARE VERY BRIGHT. As in they cast shadows across 30 feet of my basement bright. There is no way to disable these bright LEDs in the software. If I do not face the LEDs away from my monitor they cast an annoying glare that is hard on the eyes.

The Software in Windows 8.1 is a bit limited IMO. When I remove these headsets and try to go back to using my onboard sound card I will have to reboot the PC to make the change. I am not certain if this is a Corsair driver issue or Windows 8.1 but keep that in mind.

Other Thoughts: These are open back headphones, you will hear outside noise with them, that is what I got these myself. If the designer and marketing people are watching these reviews, please stop, just STOP with putting super bright LED lights on everything, or at least have a software solution to disable them. I do not need a light on a headphone cable that shines a glare on my monitor, illuminates the faces of people next to me at a LAN party or that can be used as emergency lighting on an airplane.

The fit, materials used finish, audio and weight are all acceptable and for the price are hard to beat at this price point. Plantronics has a headset called RIG at this price-point that I got to use at a LAN which has a better feel to it and slightly better software if you looking for an alternative.

4 out of 5 eggs Nice Headset 12/01/2014

This review is from: Corsair H1500 USB Connector Circumaural Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset

Pros: Very Comfy, sounds great, mic is loud and clear.

Cons: USB only connection and cannot be used on a non-computer source.

Other Thoughts: The good news is that the build in sound card works perfectly in Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 64 bit. I was able to game with these for several hours and not feel too fatigued. I have a large skull and these are the most comfortable headset that I have owned in quite some time. These are heavy, and if you have a small head they may not fit you well.

I've not tested the noise cancelling as I game in a quiet environment. The mic in online chat is clear and clean.
