Pros: Stays extremely cool even when overclocked to the max(which is really a con).
quiet even. Even when fans are all the way up, it's not that loud.
Great for 1080p 144 Hz monitors.
8 pin and 6 pin power connector(not that the card will even let you use the extra power because it's limited to 1.093v
Cons: Voltage is locked at 1.093 even though the cards don't go above 65-70C at that voltage. This means you're stuck at around 2130 Mhz when overclocking due to insufficient power instead of too much heat. My CPU and motherboard can handle the extra power... I have my i5 4690k running at 4.7 GHz no problem.
Can't change the color on the red stripes(could just be mine is bugged out or something though, but mine is stuck on red either way) I can only change the MSI logo color. Doesn't really matter though, because I have a red/black theme anyway and it's coming off in a couple of weeks when I put an EK GPU block on it.
Other Thoughts: I hate the way these new GPU's automatically adjust their clock. I want to just be able to set it at a specific spot and leave it there. I don't need it to throttle from 2126 down to 2113 or w/e when my temps are in the 60's.
It's probably the best or tied for the best GTX 1070.
best sensor on the market
extremely responsive buttons
feels pretty good
braided cables are a PITA, so I was happy when I found out this one wasn't braided.
Cons: Going from the G500 to this felt weird at first, but I finally got used to it, and I'm happy with it now.
The shape may not be comfortably for some(smaller hands), even I find it kind of awkward feeling.
Other Thoughts: I got tired of the giant G500 after 3 years and wanted something that I could claw grip, and after having to cancel mt order for a CM Storm Spawn(the store couldn't get their hands on one), I decided to go with this mouse, and I'm pretty pleased so far.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Overclocked to 4.5 GHz and it stays under 65 C, usually around 50 C while gaming and 90% usage. Using a Hyper 212 EVO
Increase in performance wasn't the most amazing improvement, but it was noticeable. I went from an FX 6300 to this, and I just game and browse the internet(no coding, editing, or anything like that). I wasn't expecting miracles, but I just wasn't impressed with the small increase in game performance.
It's faster overall, but I wouldn't go over a budget just to get this CPU over an AMD CPU.
Cons: Price/performance in games isn't nearly as good as AMD.
Other Thoughts: With the overclock, my benchmark scores are about the same as the 4770kREAD FULL REVIEW
