Pros: It looks great and has all of the features one would expect from a gaming mouse. Unfortunately, it's also made on the cheap which shows whilst playing games.
Cons: The driver is glitchy. The hardware itself seems to work but I got horrible stutter whilst playing BF4, DayZ, Etc. Honestly, it could have been a fluke - but as with anything in the PC industry you get what you pay for. As a result, i've sent it back to Newegg and bought a Roccat Kone XTD (like I should have to start with).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
Pros: This is the 2nd one of these I've bought. First go around was on a i7-2600k. I expected super low temps and got 20's. it wasn't until I OC'd and stress tested the chip that I saw the benefit. that chip hit 55c and just kind of stayed there.
You may not see the low temps that some get with custom coolers but you will get stability across a HUGE range of clocking and usage. Something an air cooler can never do.
I've run both with stock paste and Arctic Silver 5 and didn't notice any real difference. Maybe a degree or two.
Cons: None for the price paid. I guess they could chuck in another set of fans - but that would cost them an extra 2 bucks and raise the price $20.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is my first run with the GTX700 series cards and I've got to say i'm pretty happy with the performance. I've got 2 in SLI and dont run into anything that I cant run at at minimum High settings and get over 100 fps (more often over).
The included software is pretty rad, considering - not anywhere near as buggy as the ASUS software that come with their Direct CUII series cards.
Cons: EVGA has had a habit of charging for every extra they can get away with in the past, this is no exception. The back plates can be bought for $20 more, and the upgraded (fancier - prettier) SLI bridge is another $40 on top of that.
I'm not pulling an egg for that, because it's all superfluous - but just once I'd like to drop $500 on a set of cards and get all of the goodies gratis.
