CM Storm Pulse-R - Professional Gaming Headset with Customizable Aluminum Plates and White LED Lighting
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: -Very appealing design.
-Sturdy aluminum construction.
-Detachable microphone.

Cons: -HORRIBLE sound quality, much worse than even my $20 logitech around-the-neck headset.
-Very, very uncomfortable ear cup design.
-Not breathable at all, sweat factories.
-Not a USB headset, USB powers only the LEDs and Microphone.
-Microphone is flexible, but does not stay where flexed.
-Very Heavy.
-Head cushion has a very shallow angle, and nougies you in the balder part of the head.

Other Thoughts: While the design is appealing, it is most certainly not ergonomic. Coupled that with shamefully bad audio quality, and you've got a pariah of a headset. Too bad, I was hoping for a bit more from CM.

After a few hours, I decided to return the device to the Fry$ Electronics where I purchased. I got the Corsair Vengence 1500 and I'm so glad I did, that headset blows this one out of the water, at about the same price-point too.

ASUS R9280X-DC2T-3GD5 Radeon R9 280X 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: My results on spec speeds were somewhat better than I had anticipated:

(vs Sapphire HD 6750 Flex Edition):
Dirt 3 Benchmark from 75 to 111 avg FPS -- max all
Rome 2 Benchmark from 50 to 79.9 avg FPS -- Very High & shadows med

wish I had more games w/built-in benchmarks to compare, but these numbers are encouraging.

-Quiet fans, almost unnoticeable till 30%, perfectly reasonable at 50%
-Easy OC.
-Perhaps the best seller-provided GPU tuning/monitoring program in GPUTweak.
-Good looks. There's one big fat pipe on outside makes for a nice display.
-Temps at idle are a-ok.

Cons: -Because the shroud is inexplicably longer than it needs to be by about a quarter inch it didn't fit in my case (cooler master scout I), had to upgrade to the CM Trooper, which I'm also very happy with.

-Spartan accessories, just a xfire cable and drivers, manual. No free games yet.

-Temperatures under load are normal, but they're not super encouraging for OCing -- I may keep it at spec for a while. Surely though, it can be done, I just prefer lower temps than most for my equipment.

Other Thoughts: MoBo: ASUS P8Z68-v LE
Proc: Intel I7 870
Mem: 16GB
CM Trooper case with a "no frills" approach ventilation and cooling.

Package was a day late. Shipped through OnTrac shipping, out for delivery at 7:30 am in my area, but didn't arrive until 11 the next day. If at all possible avoid using OnTrac, I've yet to be satisfied with their service.
