Titanfall PC Game
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Fun :) 04/02/2014

This review is from: Titanfall PC Game

Pros: Fast paced and to me, it's fun. Running along the walls is a nice change of pace and you get to control a giant robot.

Don't want to waste a bullet, you can just step on your enemy to kill them instead :)

Cons: match making isn't that great. When I first logged on, I was level one, it matched me with people that were lvl 40+... Yea, that's a perfect match right there...

6v6 is ok, but I think it would be better with more "Pilot's" and fewer AI controlled enemies.

Doesn't work well with Eyefinity, I mean, it works, but the HUD doesn't display and you kinda need that visible. Put the game in 1920x1080 and you get the HUD display back. Very disappointed by this from a brand new game.

Other Thoughts: I don't normally play FPS games, but I like this one. It's a nice change from what you get from a "typical" FPS game.

Thermaltake Toughpower XT TPX-1275M 1275W ATX 12V 2.3 & SSI EPS 12V 2.92 SLI CrossFire 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: it's nice and quiet when not under heavy load.
80 plus platinum

Cons: 18 guage cable... really...? so the power cable supplied with this psu is rated at 10 amps, the psu is rated at a max of 13 amps... so at full load, the cable could overheat/burn up... what is thermaltake thinking supplying a power cable too small for the amps the psu could potentionally pull... this psu should've come with a 16 guage cable minimum. this issue has also be acknowelded in some review sites of this psu as well. my older cooler master had a 14a pull and it came with a 14 guage wire, at least those guys know what they are doing and aren't cutting corners that could possibly result in a fire hazzard.

Those little status led lights are a nice concept, as long as you have a case that mounts the psu up top, if you have one mounted at the bottom then you have to flip the psu over and then no more status led lights for you as it's now facing the back of the case. They should've thought of that and placed status led's on both sides of the psu and not just one side...

8 & 24 pin cable lengths... just too short for proper cable management, especially, again, for bottom mounted psu's. luckily my cooler master psu also came with extra extension cables for the 8pin cable. i just used those on this psu in order to make the cables reach far enough to plug them into the motherboard.

Cables are pretty stiff, makes it harder to manipulate for good cable management.

Other Thoughts: This psu was replaceing a 1000w cooler master psu that shorted out when my cpu water cooler burst and drained all the raidiator fluid straight down into my psu (bottom mounted psu). RIP cooler master, you will be missed.

-1 point for the 18 guage cable.
-1 pont for the short cable lengths.
-1/2 point for the cable stiffness
-1/2 point for the status led's.
+1 point for quietness when not under heavy loads

with the exception of the supplied power cable, which is unforgivable, the cons for this psu isn't too bad and is completely manageable, although there is plenty of room for improvements.

LITE-ON Black 12X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 12X DVD-RAM 8X BD-ROM 8MB Cache SATA 12X Blu-ray Burner with Blu-ray 3D feature IHBS112-29
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: None

Cons: Failed in less than 4 months and never even been used to burn a BR or DVD disk yet.

Other Thoughts: I've had the drive less than 4 months. I have yet to use it to burn any BD's (or anything for that matter). After using it to watch 4 BD movies and then 1 DVD movie, the drive completely failed on me. Now it won't recognize any BluRay movies's, DVD movie's or data discs, nothing. This drive is a piece of junk, save your money and buy a better brand BluRay drive.
