This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Brown Switches
Pros: I like the size, the weight, and the back lighting with a single Led under each key.
Has a Windows button that deactivates the key.
Has volume control and three light brightness settings.
A nice feel to the keys when gaming or typing.
The 5 year warranty is great and it's needed in a big way!
Cons: I have had 4 different replacements and they all had bad keys that made the keyboard impossible to use!!
I'm not a complainer and usually this would be considered a compliant and not a review. However, with 4 bad boards in a row this does become part of the review!
We will see how the brand new keyboard that costs $120 will work compared to this $95 keyboard??
I'm hoping I will be pleased.
Other Thoughts: I gave this a very poor rating based on the overall quality control of this keyboard.
Either I have had some horrific bad luck or the quality control is just horrible with this keyboard.
I have had 4 defective keyboards in a row.
Total cost was $95 + $17 to return it the first time=$112.00
Thermaltake has offered me a brand new keyboard called the Poseidon Z RGB that I have not even seen for sale yet other than on there website.
I'll have to wait and see if this brand new design makes a difference? Hopefully this last keyboard will change my view point on this Brown Switch mechanical keyboard.
I bought my keyboard from the other huge vender that has a 30 day return policy.
Pros: Well built, vapor X really works well!
Price I paid was only $95 for a used card just back from a RMA.
I own 2 of these and they both work great alone or in Cross-Fire!
Only needs 2 - 6 pin power connections and a 500 watt P.S.U.
Cards have a duel BIOS button which is a nice add on.
I would rate these a solid 4 1/2 egg ratting if they had that option! I never give any hardware a 5 egg review as any component can be improved!
Cons: Current price point is a joke!
I paid only $95 for each of my 2 Sapphire 270X cards.
Fans can go bad but have not on mine.
Other Thoughts: If you have one of these cards and a fan begins to get loud simply clean the heat sink and the fans after removing the fans with a jewel sized screw driver.
I had a one card that sounded as though the fan had a bad bearing. After close inspection all it needed was a good heat sink and fan blade cleaning.
I smoke and this will harm any fans in a computer system. It actually harms everything in a computer system.
I try to limit the harm with a good cleaning every 3 to 6 months!
This cleaning takes a good 5 to 6 hours as every single fan blade needs to be cleaned thoroughly!
I love the vapor X tech as it really seems to work as advertised!
I would avoid the 3 fan cards and go for a good vapor X variety if you can find a used card for under $120!
I only paid $95 and $90 for two identical cards. These are usually used for mining and can be found at very good price points on *bay.
I used to only buy cards brand new and buying these two used only cost me $95! I sold my Asus 6950 for $90 which was the price of the second card I bought.
You may choose to use the Sapphire software to adjust the voltage, or re-flash the card to the correct voltage!
I had one that was flashed under the default voltage and it runs perfectly so I left it alone.
Normally, I would have flashed the cards BIOS back to the factory default voltage.
In cross-fire mode the cards work fine with the voltages being matched via AMDs CCC or the Sapphire supplied software.
Both will work to change the voltage back to the default.
This review is from: Rosewill CAPSTONE-750-M – 750-Watt Modular, Active PFC Power Supply – Continuous @ 122 Deg. F (50C), 80PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, Intel Haswell, SLI & CrossFire Ready
Pros: Nice modular design with a 750 watt Gold Rated power supply!
I used to only buy Corsair power supplies but gambled on this after it received a SILVER star award from Hardocp!
Have been running this unit for over 6 months without a single problem!
Is modular where it counts and has very nice round cables that don't crack when placed on Hard Drives of Optical Drives!
These power supplies have a 5 year warranty which is tough to beat!
Nice black look with a 140mm fan that very quite!
Has held up well and uses some high quality capacitors as well!
This go's to show you that not all the cheaper power supplies are bad products!
This replaced a non modular Corsair 750 watt bronze that just had too many extra cables to tuck away!
This seems like it will hold up well and has for the first 6 months! I would say it's passed it's break in or burn in period with flying colors!
Cons: None at this price point!
Other Thoughts: Sure it's not a Corsair but at this price point I can't find anything wrong with this power supply!
I was able to pick mine up for only $70 which is a excellent price!
I have used this with duel Sapphire R9- 270X Vapor X video cards and 6 hard drives along with 2 optical drives, a water cooler, and numerous case fans and it driven all these components without a single issue!
I'm glad I tried this out and will now be placing these in most new builds at the shop!
How can you beat a gold rated modular supply that costs $70 and can hold it's own against other supplies costing almost 3 times as much?
I personally think people get way to hung up on name brands and spend cash that they can put into a different internal part. A better video card or extra ram over a name brand power supply is a smart move to me.
I have worked in I.T. since 1994 and see no reason why this power supply should not be taken very seriously as Hardocp has given it a Silver star award which means a lot coming from them!
