Pros: Incredibly fast, multi-threading, 4.0 GHz factory base clock.
I bought this processor as a replacement for my i7 2600. (Also a solid CPU). It has made a big difference in my system for gaming and processor heavy tasks.
I'd go so far as to say that it's complete overkill for my purposes. However I don't think I'll need to worry about replacing it any time soon.
Cons: Heat. Lots of heat!
When you receive this processor in the mail, remove the CPU from the box and throw the rest away. The stock heatsink and fan are completely worthless.
My idle temps are stable around 33C and around 40C when doing some light multi-tasking. However when I play a demanding game like Far Cry 4 the temps rocket to 72C rather quick and don't come down.
If you order this processor, just order a nice, big aftermarket cooler with it. Especially if you plan to overclock it at all.
I would have knocked off an egg, but I researched this issue while waiting for the processor to arrive so I was somewhat prepared.
This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 2100 Circumaural Wireless Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset
Pros: Great range of sound in the headphones. Crisp, clear and tight notes all across the range. Decent punch on the bass end.
Sound from the mic is crisp and clear. There is a feedback feature where you can hear yourself speaking in the headset so you know how loud you're talking. The flip-up to mute feature is also nice. Its easy to tell if you're on a hot mic because it's in front of your face.
Battery life is good as is the comfort. The ear pieces pivot on two axis so they'll be a comfortable fit for just about anyone.
Transmission range is very good.
Cons: There's a soft, white-noise hiss at low volumes. I found this infuriating at first but have kind of learned to deal with it. I knocked off an egg because I'm a bit of an audiophile.
A bit heavy but after awhile you won't notice.
Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a good wireless headset, go ahead and add this to your cart. Little quibbles aside, this is a solid headset you won't regret purchasing.
I've been buying products from Corsair from awhile and have yet to be disappointed.
Pros: Amazingly fast drive! Installed Win 7 from a USB drive in 10 minutes. Win 7 boots in 15 seconds or so. Load screens inbetween scene changes on Skyrim take less than five seconds.
When I say fast I mean FAST. It wasn't DOA and it had the latest firmware installed when I got it.
Cons: Doesn't include a 2.5 to 3.5 adapter... Wouldn't been nice.
Price is the only other issue I see.
