Pros: Great RAM! Runs really fast. For those of you who are having troubles getting this run on AMD systems I have it running on full DDR3-2000 speeds on my AMD system. Here are the detailed changes I made in the BIOS and my system specs to help you guys out.
Specs: ASUS Crosshair IV Formula, AMD 1100T @ 4Ghz, 16GB (4x4) @ DDR3-2000. Below are the changes needed to make it work.
FSB Frequency @ 250Mhz instead of stock 200. Timings on Memory set at 9-11-9-27-41-2T with the TRFC @ 300 instead of 160. DRAM voltage set @ 1.9V and NB and HT set @ 1.35V. My processor is also @ 1.4V but that has nothing to do with the RAM. Thats all I had to do. I've done stress testing and all tests came out stable and the RAM is blazing fast.
Other Thoughts: I am a Computer Engineer. If you are an Amateur with OC'ing beware. Raising voltages and frequencies without proper cooling can damage the hardware permanentally. If you are uncomfortable with it stick with the stock speeds.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: As I am a Computer Engineer, I can tell you now that this is the best hardware on the market. And for the person who said look at tomshardware and claims the 8800 Ultra beats this in many games, there is a reason the headline ON tomshardware is "ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 - Fastest Yet!" The 8800 Ultra only beats this card on lower settings, lower resolutions and crappier games. If you look at Crysis, Oblivion, and Unreal Tournament 3 the framrates are higher on the 3870X2 and those are the newest and greatest games. Crysis being the ultimate benchmarking program. Even on Supreme Commander it beats the 8800 Ultra by a good 20fps. This is directly from Tom's Hardware. Besides benchmarks are very biased. I saw a website to try and hide it by competing SLI against a single 3870 and saying the Nvidia's are faster. Not fair. This card is a beast. I can put Crysis on Very High Detail completely smooth at 1680x1050.
Cons: It is quite a large Video Card. But if you buy a decent case it's not a problem.
Other Thoughts: Don't let Nvidia fanboys discourage you from this absolutely wonderful card. Plus ATI always has a better pictur than Nvidia.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This mouse is absolutely wonderful in my opinion. As a Razer fan I rated this based on previous experienced with their mice. I was particularly unhappy with the Copperhead because my favorite mouse to this day is the Boomslang. My old Boomslang 2100 is still awesome. The Lachesis has a shape that is a mix between the boomslang and the copperhead. So if you were a boomslang fan you'll love this mouse.
Cons: None that I know of. Sounds like the guy below me hasn't been using gaming mice very long. And I am a left hander so a mouse that I love not being ambidextrious would make me angry.
Other Thoughts: If you are used to the terrible microsoft mice and logitech tank mice, then don't get this mouse. This is only for serious users.READ FULL REVIEW
