Pros: The quality of this card is incredible. You can tell when you pick it up that its sturdy and also the aluminum PCB cover is really nice. I like how it only required two 6 pin power connectors instead of two 8 pins, saving me from having to buy adapters. It was easily overclocked to 1250mhz core and 1450 mhz memory no problem. Also the drivers for it have not conflicted at all. This is tested on Windows 7 - Ultimate 64-bit. It also had really nice packaging and the mouse pad is pretty cool. I switched out my Razer Goliathus for it actually. It's really smooth and quite large. Speaking of large...see cons.
Cons: Completely disregard their "Dimensions" on the specifications tab. This card IS NOT 10 inches. I measured it myself and it is close to 11.5 inches. I barely got it to fit in my Rosewill Challenger U3 case. as I was planning on 10 in. But After a few minutes of cable management I got it in there nice and snug. Other than that I have no cons whatsoever. The card is a beautiful site and performs exactly as advertised.
Other Thoughts: I used MSI Afterburner and MSI Kombustor for overclocking and benchmarking. Mine is currently set at 1250mhz core and 1450 mhz memory STABLY I might add. I have been able to max out the video settings on all of my games except for Metro - Last Light(which is more for Nvidia cards i think) I had to turn tesselation off and that was about it. A short list of games I can max out is: Crysis 3, Assassin's Creed IV - Black Flag, BF3 and BF4. Call Of Duty - Ghosts, and COUNTER-STRIKE 1.6 YEAH!!! lol jk.

This review is from: Razer DeathAdder Ergonomic PC Gaming Mouse
Pros: Everything about this mouse is great. I got it at the local (inset major department store here) but I love it so much, I decided to write a review for it. This mouse looks and feels great. Love the Green LED's (they match my green LED case fans perfectly). Love the rough texture on this mouse in particular because it fits my hand pefectly and allows a good grip. Love Razer Synapse 2.0 software for tweaking this mouse and all the options and macros you can accomplish with it. Works great with Razer Goliathus mousepad. I've never gotten so many headshots in Counter-Strike 1.6 or any game than with this mouse. It's like it knows! lol. Love the weight of the mouse. Not too light (like the abyssus-which feels like you're going to break it) Love the durable braided cord and its length is perfect. Did I mention I love this mouse?
Cons: None whatsoever.
Other Thoughts: The 2013 4G infrared version has just incredible responsiveness. Not much need for higher DPI because I play at a lower sensitivity. I'm happy with the sensitivity at default. One thing I might mention is the sensitivity of mouse buttons 4 and 5. If you have larger/heavier hands and your pushing the mouse to the right you might press those buttons inadvertently.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAZER Abyssus RZ01-00360100-R3U1 Wired Optical High Precision Gaming Mouse - Black
Pros: Very light (almost too light-borderline con), Razer Synapse 2.0 allows on the fly adjustments to be made as well as the onboard DPI, and frequency sliders on the buttom for quick adjustments. Goes great with a Razer Goliathus mousepad.
Razer customer support was great(see cons)
Cons: Left mouse button cracked while I was holding down the fire button one night. It eventually chipped off completely, and I thought razer products were made to be more durable than that, so I RMA'd it and Razer support was EXCELLENT. They kept emailing me back and forth and after I filled out all the requirements and sent images, they agreed for me to send it in so a replacement could be delivered. But, I ended up cancelling it and upgrading to the Razer DeathAdder 2013 4G Infrared awesomeness. Was more expensive, but SO worth it.
Other Thoughts: Love Razer and their customer support, and the software they provide. Razer Synapse 2.0 is GENIUS. Love the idea of one program fits all. Waiting for my Razer Kraken 7.1 headset to come so I can complete my new setup of Razer DeathStalker, Razer DeathAdder, Razer Goliathus, and Razer Kraken. =]READ FULL REVIEW
