Pros: -Supplies power (hey whaddya know!)
-Great power efficiency
Cons: -No problems so far!
Other Thoughts: It has quite a lot of connections, and is fair with how many of each there are. Only one for auxiliary (molex, berg), a few for PCIe (not sure), many for SATA (3 or something?!), and there might be more but I'm not sure.
The motherboard power connector was kind of weird to try and figure out how to connect it all and how it plugged into the power supply, and...which end went where (at least for me), but it may have also had something to do with the fact that I put the unit in my build before connecting the connectors I needed.
I HIGHLY recommend connecting everything you need before putting this in your case.
This review is from: Corsair Gaming K70 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown
Pros: -High quality feel
-Software is very user friendly and useful, which many options and preset effects and ways to make your own effects.
-Has device memory
Cons: -A little expensive for what you get (I bought mine at about $170).
-If you install a default profile onto the keyboard that has special lighting effects (wave, keypress ripple effects, etc.), then the device WILL NOT have ANY lights until you login and the software is loaded in Windows. HOWEVER, if you have static lighting set as the default profile saved to the device memory, it will work just fine. Not sure why this is.
-Also noticed some issues at bootup where typing or pressing keys before Windows loads (e.g. going into UEFI settings or doing something else outside of Windows, EVEN ON BIOS MODE), the keyboard brightness changes with every keystroke as if you're pressing the brightness key. Strange.
Other Thoughts: When I first received mine, the volume wheel seemed a bit stiff. I thought it was odd and definitely seemed stiffer than my liking, but later, while using, I pushed it down a little which clicked it back into place (I guess?) which made it smooth and easy to use. Maybe it came out of it's wheel thing in shipping?
You can download and install profiles easily.
Pros: -Look very nice in any computer setup
-Very fast and work perfectly fine, haven't had any problems whatsoever
Cons: -Read "Other" section
Other Thoughts: Not sure if necessarily a real problem, but by default, these sticks are not detected as 3200MHz sticks of RAM. They are by default detected as something around 2133 or something along those lines. So technically you have to overclock them in the UEFI to reach the stock speed advertised? Anyone on DDR4 at the moment and buying Ripjaws V RAM probably knows how to do this, but I wish I knew why it was like this.
Otherwise, never had any problems!
I HIGHLY recommend this RAM!
