This review is from: Rosewill RHTS-8206 USB Connector 5.1 Channel Vibration Gaming Headset
Pros: Decent base
Nice vibration feature
Cord length is about 4 feet to the controller and another 2 to the headphones them self
Controller is simple to use volume up and down, mic mute and speaker mute with a switch for vibration
The software is decent but not perfect
Cons: The blue lights in the controller can be irritating at night
Wish there were a clip on the back if the controller to hook onto clothes
As stated below it must be plugged into a usb2 port a usb3 will not work properly
Weird effects from software if configured wrong
Doesn't breathe from the cups
Other Thoughts: Initially i unbowed this, plugged it into a usb3 port on my computer and every few seconds the audio would drop out. Tried uninstalling the drivers multiple times but still nothing. Switched it to the usb2 on the back and it worked properly instantly. And those blue lights certainly can get annoying fast if your in a dark room or sleep with the computer in the same room. I noticed that even with a usb3 port running off a usb2 internal header that these didn't work either
Overall not a bad set of headphones for 39.99
This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case
Pros: Usb3.0 on the front, 4 fans, lots of room, removable hdd cages, tool less hdd and 5.25 drive bays. 8 expansion ports. The fans are near silent even from 1 foot away on high.
Cons: Dust filters, they do work but with the included fans are low cfm with the filters in place, Emily removed though. The switch to turn the leds on and off is a bit hard to press. The white power and hdd activity lights are bright especially in a dark room. The hdd tray is a bit loose if your using ssd
Other Thoughts: I ended up moving the front fans to the top of the case as extra exhaust fans and they helped lower my fx 6300's temps a few degrees. And to anyone that thinks they can add more fans to the installed controller, don't bother they use a special connector. And even though it says you can have 10 fans there it really is only practical to use 8 at most as the other two would be attached to the back of the hdd cage so there would be one in front and back of each cage.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master i500 - 500W Power Supply with 80 PLUS Bronze Certification
Pros: I love it, the cpu cable is long enough to be able to be routed behind my motherboard in my corsair 500r case, with some extra wiggle room. Two individual sata lines with three connectors on each. A single 4 pin molex line with 3 connectors and a floppy connector at the end. A single pcie line with 2 6+2 connectors on it. The 20+4 pin is nicely sleeved with a single black mesh over the wires.
Cons: Kind of wish that the floppy connector was removable. And would've liked to see dual 4 pin molex strings instead of a single one. And would've liked the main power sleeved a little better, but for the price you can't beat it.
Other Thoughts: It powers my rig nicely: fx6300, 970 extreme4, 1tb hdd, 120gb ssd, 12gb ram, radeon hd 6750 and a lot of fans.
Now just waiting on the rebate to come back and ill be even happier
