ARCTIC MX-2 (4g) Carbon-Based Thermal Compound, Non-Electricity Conductive, Non-Capacitive
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fair price for the compound. Electrically non-conductive but it transfers heat like a champ.

Cons: The tube is deceptively long. You don't get a huge amount, but should last through maybe 4 to 5 applications.

Other Thoughts: I don't benchmark thermal compounds for a living, but I applied this to the heatsink in my laptop and saw a VERY noticeable drop in temperatures (around 10 degrees Celsius) and the fan turns off way more often. There was some really cheap stuff in my machine.

Logitech G930 USB Connector Circumaural Wireless Gaming Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Awesome sound, software-supported equalizer that functions. G-Key macro side-buttons on the headphones themselves.

Previously, I used RAZER peripherals, but I recently switched to Logitech, and while the products were good from RAZER, Logitech has given me a better experience all around.

The Logitech G930s provide an excellent auditory range, and emulated 7.1 works as designed. The quality of the wireless connection is outstanding as long as it doesn't overlap any WiFi connections (2.4 Ghz)

Though the actual headset is fairly large, it is really light weight.

Cons: Signal can be interrupted by strong wireless bursts from devices such as cell phones, laptops and routers. Place the receiver well away from these devices.

Headset cannot connect to the WiFi network in your house

Initially, the ear cushions can be really stiff and a bit uncomfortable. Give them a bit of time to break in.

Other Thoughts: These headsets are good quality for the price, and they are wireless. Moving from a wired headset (where I was CONSTANTLY rolling over the wire with my chair, or I had to some how manage it) it's pretty hassle free.

The G930s are additionally more hassle free if you already have other Logitech peripherals and you have the Gaming Software installed. Installation is literally plugging in the adapter.

Since the audio signal is purely digital, there is no possibility for analog buzz. (Shoddy audio cards beware!)

Cooler Master V850 - 850W Power Supply with Fully Modular Cables and 80 PLUS Gold Certification
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: One word for this power supply: AWESOME.

1. It's a SeaSonic power supply inside. CoolerMaster did it right with SeaSonic power supply parts. I get steady, reliable power (going on 8 months of use).

2. Power power power! - It's 850W which is enough to power my two GTX-760s in SLI and I do a moderate overclock on my i5 3570K to 4.3 Ghz with connectors and power to spare.

3. The Cables and Connectors: I chose this power supply because on the power supply itself, it has THREE slots for PCI Express power. Most other Cooler Master power supplies with similar wattage had TWO. Not to mention, there are TWO 8-pin PCIe power ports per header, so you get a total of 6 connectors for graphics cards. Granted, I don't think powering 3 top-end nVidia or AMD cards (R9290X and GTX 780 Ti at the time of writing) will actually work.

- The power cables are nice and flat (except for the 24-pin which is sleeved) but it makes it INCREDIBLY easy for cable management and this power supply is fully modular.

4. NewEgg Deals: I got this power supply on Shell Shocker months ago when it was first released for $139.99.

5 - Kinda not as important for me, but it's SILENT. I run the computer under load and the power supply barely makes a whisper (or it's being drowned out by my graphics card fans)

Cons: I had to wait months for my $30 MIR (I usually don't bother with MIRs of $20 or less). As most of the computer companies use ONE rebate company it seems, it kinda sucks.

Other Thoughts: Get a tower with good cable management options (like my HAF 912) and you will be EXTREMELY happy with this power supply.
