This review is from: G.SKILL RIPJAWS KM780 MX Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Blue Switches
Pros: The keyboard it's self has a nice steel feel to it compared to all the other plastic keyboards out there. Went from Blackwidow Ultimate to this keyboard. This keyboard I have been using for a whole day now. The clicks aren't as plastic and high pitch as the Blackwidow is. I was very cautious in buying this keyboard since it's G.Skill a brand not know for keyboards but for RAM. At the time this was the best keyboard out in the market that had MX Blue and was well priced. The overall look of this is 10/10 and feel I would say is 9/10 but may be a 10/10 since i'm not used to Cherry keys coming from Razer. I really wanted a razer product but after dealing with their software and having it kill my keyboard on the newest update, I had to go with a different brand and since I have G.Skill memory and have been using it for 7 years I decided to give their keyboards a go. I love the rollie pollie volume control and it's metal not cheap plastic. I really wanted the RGB version of this but that doesn't come out until April and my keyboard broke and I couldn't not use a clicky keyboard.
Cons: The wrist rest is very plasticy. doesn't really connect well to the keyboard, but most keyboards don't have the bottom rest so even though it's not what I expected when the keyboard material is A+, it does it's job.
Other Thoughts: For the price I paid and getting a free mousepad, which wasn't that great, but it gave opening the package a nice new car smell, this was a very good buy. I will miss my blackwidow for a couple of days until i get used to the cherry keys, but I will not miss having really bad software and bad firmware upgrades. G.Skill site has everything right there on the page instead of navigating in and out trying to find the updates.
For everyone who doesn't understand some of the lingo.
Cherry MX are the standard keys used in all keyboards around the world.
Cherry MX has different types of key strokes,
This keyboard has Cherry MX Blue.
Blue and Green have the clicking noise when you press the key.
Green needs a harder click about 3 times more pressure than the blue, like laptop keys.
Razer's green key strock is about the same as Cherry MX Blue.
Pros: Works, still works even though they aren't as stable as IDE and SATA.
Cons: Must be update with latest firmware before actually using.
If you don't have a bay or an extra slot be sketchy about this as if you don't have the latest updates, it will increase dramatically the chance of it dieing on you.
Other Thoughts: Not for new computer people.
If you read instructions and have common sense you could possible read some instructions on how to update it.
This review is from: Cooler Master V6 GT - CPU Cooler with Dual 120 mm PWM Fans and 6 Heatpipes
Pros: 3 different colors, Red, Purple, And Blue. Not light colors and not dark. I call them Might Morphing Power Ranger Colors as that is what they look like. Great airflow and keeps my processor cool when overclocking
Cons: Pain in the rear to put together. the fans that sit on the sides are a perfect fit where you are saying well that was easy, it's a tight fit where you curse at it and say C'MON! but after doing it 2 times you get used to it.
Other Thoughts: The newer version doesn't look as cool as this one. This one has better protection if you are constantly in your computer fixing stuff. This thing grabs dust like a beast so a cleaning every 2 or 3 months is probably a good idea.READ FULL REVIEW
