Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red LED - Cherry MX Red Switches
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Like it so much, I bought another for work 10/27/2014

This review is from: Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red LED - Cherry MX Red Switches

Pros: I bought my first K70 around 6-8 months ago. I fell in love. This isn't the first mechanical keyboard I've had, but it's the first Corsair one, and the first with Cherry reds. I've used the blues, and browns before. The reds are definitely my favorite. And I do a lot of typing, and gaming. It's holding up very well, it's very well put together.

the fact that the keys are higher than the actual frame of the keyboard makes it very easy to clean. The Cherry reds are great, smooth and linear. Some people like a detent at point of activation, but to me these are just fine as well.

Illumination works great, with several different modes.

I love the first one so much that I bought a 2nd one to use at work, since I spend all 8 hours of my shift working on the computer. This is a fantastic keyboard, I strongly recommend it if you are looking for a simple (no macro keys and fancy gaming buttons) keyboard that is well made, and comfortable to type with.

Cons: As with most mechanicals, it can be noisy if you bottom the keys out when you type. That isn't really a flaw of the keyboard itself, it's just the nature of the beast when it comes to mechanical keyboards. Other than that, none really.

ASRock B75M R2.0 LGA 1155 Intel B75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I purchased this board alongside an Intel Celeron (Ivy Bridge) for use in a file/plex/minecraft/mumble/etc server. It has a ton of SATA ports for the price, which was a major factor in my decision to purchase it. It seems well made, and thus far it's been 100% stable since I started it. It just works. And the features, and stability at the price, make this board a fantastic choice. Good job, ASRock.

Cons: Only 2 DRAM slots, but that isn't really a big deal.

Other Thoughts: Running with
Intel Celeron Ivy Bridge 2.6Ghz
8GB Crucial Ballistix 1333 RAM
1x AData 64GB SSD, 3x WD Green 2TB, 1x Hitachi 750GB HDD, 1x Hitachi 320GB HDD, 1x Samsung 500GB HDD
Antec Neo Eco 400C PSU

Intel Celeron G1610 Ivy Bridge Dual-Core 2.6GHz LGA 1155 55W BX80637G1610 Desktop Processor

5 out of 5 eggs Does a great job for the price 01/27/2014

This review is from: Intel Celeron G1610 Ivy Bridge Dual-Core 2.6GHz LGA 1155 55W BX80637G1610 Desktop Processor

Pros: Using as the server CPU, running a minecraft server, KSP server, plex transcode server, Mumble server, and IRC Bot.
Handles everything with ease, can handle 2 simultaneous transcodes in plex easily. Even under maximum load running h264 encoding in handbrake, it is still pulling less than 20 watts. This is incredible performance/watt. Great job as usual, Intel. At this incredibly low power, there is no reason to use anything but the stock intel heatsink, as it's more than sufficient.

Cons: It's not an i5?

Other Thoughts: Running on an ASRock B75M mATX motherboard with a ton of Harddrives, and 8GB of Crucial Ballistix RAM.
