This review is from: ASUS ROG PG278Q Black 27" WQHD 2560 x 1440, 144 Hz 1ms (GTG) NVIDIA G-Sync Gaming Monitor with Exclusive GamePlus onscreen timer / crosshair, Tilt, Swivel, Pivot, Height Adjustable
Pros: -Beautiful monitor ASUS did an amazing job
-Menu is very easy to navigate with the joystick type button on the back
-Buttons on the side are very easy to press and access
-Height adjustment and tilting is easy to do
-Monitor turns on and off very quick, don't have to wait for it to warm up
-Red ring light at the base is a nice touch to the ROG theme, and of course you can turn it off it you want too
Cons: -Screen flickers when Gsync is on during load screens, but not during game play
Other Thoughts: This is my first big gaming monitor i ever have bought and i decided to go all out and get this bad boy, I was not disappointed. Never had a 144hz monitor or ever seen on before and i am blown away, even the desktop is amazingly smooth. My only complaint is the screen flickering during loading screens in games, not a deal breaker for me, seems like others are having the same problem i am with Gsync. Other then that this monitor is amazing!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler
Pros: Very, very, very good cpu cooler even still to this day! Keeps my cpu nice and cool when i am gaming, doent go over the low to mid 50's!
Cons: Its BIG but i made sure my RAM wasn't too tall before i bought it, so just make sure you know the height of your RAM before you buy, Noctua has a nice page where you can see if your RAM is short enough.
Other Thoughts: Fits very nice with room to spare in my NZXT Switch 810, clears my ram with a good bit of room G.Skill Snipers 16 gigs, and fits on my motherboard with no problem ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO.
Just to note, as i was taking the fans on and off i kinda bent the radiator a lot, but i got it back into place... it was my fault for not paying attention to what i was doing so just be careful when taking the fans on and off.
Pros: Great motherboard! I upgraded my PC from an old i7 950 to the i7 4670k and bought this motherboard with it. There is a tonne of features with it and for the price i say you are getting your moneys worth, way better then the X58 board i was running for the past few years. This motherboard always me to overclock my system with ease and my GPU overclocks way better now (EVGA gtx 680).
Cons: Lights are bright on the mobo, i have a window on the side of my case (NZXT Switch 810) and the light shines in my eyes as i sleep, but not a big deal lol
Other Thoughts: The board is beautiful buy itself and has a awesome looking red crack light going down the left side of the motherboard and just adds a cool look to the board. I would recomend this board for anyone going to upgrade to the Haswell chips, great board!READ FULL REVIEW
