Pros: Sturdy construction, modular design, customizable fit, nice features
Cons: Logo lighting is constant, unadjustable. Firmware updater was scary,
Other Thoughts: Decent mouse for the price. Good size and weight, I have largish guitar player hands and it's comfy. Comes with 3 magnetic size adjustment options for left and right sides. I'm using the smallest on left, second smallest on right, very comfy. Feels sturdy, good weight, nice threaded cable. Decent enough software interface for macros and custom assignments. RGB lighting applies ONLY TO THE MOUSEWHEEL. I thought it was all lighting, but the logo on the palm area is extremely bright yellow and totally unadjustable, stays blindingly yellow throughout. It does come with a couple nice stickers though.... Firmware update broke my ability to work with the mouse on first attempt, totally bricked it. Scary to brick a mouse when i'm used to updating firewalls and switches with ease....if it happens to you, just re-run the 'hadesFWUpdaterv2.05.exe' in the fwupdater directory for the software and all will be right with the world. A good buy for the price overall if you're looking for should buttons. Could use a teeny bit more separation between the shoulder buttons, but I'll get used to it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I like to review the long-game. These PSUs are still out there. I've been running mine for just a month and a year now, post-rebuild upgrade to i3570k, 16gb ram, HD 7870, HDDs, SSDs and this thing just hums along.
Super nice, super quiet. Ivy Bridge Compatible as well, in my experience.
Cons: None other than 'discontinued'READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Simple installation, quiet, effective operation, excellent price point. Blue LED on the core to indicate operations.
Cons: None to note so far.
Other Thoughts: My first liquid cooler. Moved up from an E8500 w\ AC Pro Freezer 7 in my old build to an i5-3570k with intention of overclocking and didn't want an enormous noisy fan, decided to try this out. Reused my existing case (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811208005), ample free room. Space was no problem.
Install was a breeze, much, much easier than today's enormous fans.
1) Mount X bracket to underside of board.
2) Screw in standoffs to X bracket.
3) Attach fan\radiator to case.
4) Attach mount brackets to cooler core, screw them into the standoffs. Done.
i5-3570k runs at 20C idle and maybe 35C load at stock speeds. I'm blown away by the performance. Chilly air moves out the back of the case now. Will update performance once I finish overclocking.
