This review is from: SPARKLE 700021 (CALIBRE -- GTX680) GeForce GTX 680 2GB 256-Bit Video Card
Pros: The image was beautiful. I immediately noticed the upgrade over my 7870. I saw previous details within mech warrior that even at full detail didn't show, like trees swaying and a bit of crisper color. The card looks sleek black with more black. It looks right in my black computer. I have a black ROG motherboard, and a black NZXT case. The black power supply with black cables also looks nice. If Black is your theme inside your case this card works. The cooler looks tight and it is nice that the fans are obscured. It's fast GPU-Z says that it has every bit of the advertised clock speed, and the temps are held in check while the fans are nearly silent. You can hear them spin up sometimes then settle in at a lower speed.
Cons: I subtracted zero eggs for this but it's something you'll definitely want to look for.
My heat sink was initially too close to the fans. When I first installed it there was a buzz of fan on radiator. I quickly turned it off. I released a screw a bit on the heatsink, adjusted it and re-tightened it.
Other Thoughts: Check all of the fans first. It'd be nice if this wasn't something to worry about but it is.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's a good mouse. I thought the side buttons would be awkward when I first bought this but having used it I can now say that it works. The side buttons are easy to hit with just my two fingers.
Cons: Dongle could be better, I have had to move it to the front of my case to limit interference.
Other Thoughts: The software doesn't work with MWO online I had to uninstall it and this has left me without on the fly DPS switching. A minor quip but an issue that might happen for you.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NZXT HUE RGB Led Controller
Pros: Looks good. No problems here. The functions are neat, the dials work as advertised, and the whole thing looks good in my case. The two sided tape worked for me.
Cons: The strip was flexible but not super flexible. It would have been nice to have been able to work it easier to get it into position.
Other Thoughts: Worth ever penny of the 12 dollar upgrade over the regular LED rope from NZXT.READ FULL REVIEW
