Other Thoughts: It was working great, but now, blah. I have my keyboard and mouse plugged into this since this adapter allows me to keep my mouse further away than the back port limits. However, here over the past few days I am getting "skipping" with my mouse every thirty or so seconds. It isn't the drivers, it is definitely the USB adapter. I am going to consider a return, but honestly this thing is fast. Super fast. It was a great purchase, but now I have to put my mouse on the front-port USB (which takes up my front 3.0 port) to keep it where I want it. I have been able to put everything on this and it work fine, but the skipping mouse just isn't going to work, and it does it from all ports (more so on the single 'tip' port). Blah!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - On-the-fly DPI Switching
- Great default colors (Red, Blue, Green, Pink)
- Impressive LED scheme (no overpowering 'bright')
- Solid design and feel for constant use (see cons)
Cons: Just one: it feels slick after an hour or two of gaming. I don't get it, I am not one with oily fingers or sweaty hands, but this mouse brings out a 'slick' feel after a bit. I constantly have to wipe my hands to keep gaming in Titanfall, LoL and BF4. Not only that, my wife who is constantly using hand lotion (it's a girl thing!) finds it too slick for even typical use. She isn't on my system much at all, but it was definitely a notice on her part the first time she used it. I may find small clear strips to give it grip, as the design on the side (diagonal lines, they look sweet) just doesn't provide it. It has a great feel to it, and it works for all of my needs, I just need to wipe my hands often when in intense battles with my buds. I am not knocking an egg for this though, as this mouse is better than I imagined it would be... and it is a beauty with a great look and exceptional LED display. Great job.
Now if only we could get a better grip mechanism than those diagonal lines for us slick handed gamers (never had the issue until this mouse).

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 400R Graphite grey and black ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case
Pros: - Gorgeous
- Front LED fans look nice
- Not too bulky and heavy
- Tooless setup quality is impressive
- Build quality is impressive
- Plenty of room for my Gigabyte 2GB GeForce 770 Windforce 3X GPU
Cons: - Requires extra screw or three for the optical drives. Not sure why, but everything fits so snug, minus these. Both my ASUS and my Samsung drives wobbled and I had to screw them in for stability. Outside of that, this case does everything so well. NOTE: I have since replaced the Seagate with another ASUS as it runs quieter and looks more sleek
Other Thoughts: - Intel Core i7-4771 (w/ stock cooler), Gigabyte 2G GeForce 770 Windforce 3X, OCZ 850W PSU, ASUS Z87-PRO (V Edition), G.SKILL Sniper (4x2) DDR3-2400, Seagate 1TB 7200 RPM HDD (x2), ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS (x2)
Not only does it fit ALL of this, it fits it with a little room to spare. The GPU does not keep me from hooking up my SATA nor does it block anything I need. It all works. It is light, yet sturdy. Nothing cheap in here that I can tell. The hookups are really nice and the fans up front have a non-blinding white light that really makes this case look good at night. There is a button on the front of the case in which you can toggle on/off without going into some fancy UI or taking off the cover. Great case. No regrets, and it keeps my components cool. My CPU/GPU/RAM never exceed 46 degrees. This case is great, and I will buy again if it is available when I build something else later if a friend or family member needs it. This is a winner... hands down!
