This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 1500 v2 USB Connector Circumaural Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset
Pros: Great sound
Cons: Everything else. It's top heavy so it will make the top of your head hurt. Also the ear pieces rotate backwards so whenever you try to take them off they fly off your head. Also the volume control on the wire is ultra sensitive, so even if it gently taps on something it mutes you :| Also not as aesthetically pleasing irl as it is in the picture...
Other Thoughts: I would not recommend buying this headset. The fact that it flies off your head whenever you're taking it off is so incredibly annoying, even if everything else about it was perfect I still wouldn't recommend itREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Large screen, light compared to older models, less bulky, thinner frame, settings buttons easier to press, great HD quality
Cons: Navigating settings with monitor buttons are still annoying
Other Thoughts: I really like this monitor! Obviously my favorite thing is how less bulky it is than older Asus monitors. The one con, even though the monitor buttons protrude so they are much easier to press, navigating the actual settings is still annoyingly difficult. Otherwise great monitor! I especially love watching HD videos and movies on itREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Good cost for all the features
Cons: 1. First thing I noticed was a buzzing and popping from my speakers and headset after installing the latest audio drivers from the website. So i uninstalled them and fixed that.
2. Will not run my ram at its rated speed and clock. I have ram rated for 1600 9-9-9-24, it only wants it to run at 1333 10-10-10-24. My old mobo worked fine with this ram. Any attempt to set it to the stock speed would cause it to not post, or crash just after post, or bsod in windows.
3. OVERCLOCKING: Will not over clock worth anything. I have overclocked may a CPU, I had high hopes with all the praise from this bored and my CPU choice a FX-8120, but even the smallest amount of multiplier increases has brought on the BSOD. Changing the FSB at all will cause a no post.
4. Once I gave up on my overclocking hopes and hit the load fail safe defaults, apparently the bios thinks that means i want to jump my voltage from 1.4 to 1.7. That almost fried my cpu witch was running at a nice 24c idle, jumped to 80c.
Other Thoughts: Will be RMAing it to get another motherboardREAD FULL REVIEW
