Seagate Desktop SSHD ST4000DX001 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs Great Storage Drive but Not a Replacement for a SSD 05/11/2016

This review is from: Seagate Desktop SSHD ST4000DX001 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Solid State Hybrid Drive Bare Drive

Pros: -64 MB Cache with 8 GB of Solid State Storage managed by the hard drive's firmware.
-4 TB of total storage with 3.63 TB of actual storage use.
-5 year warranty compared 2 years offered by WD.
-Great alternative if on a budget or looking for a single drive solution with massive storage space
-Out performs traditional drives in OS boot time, real word differences of a few seconds under Windows 10.
-Great storage or secondary drive solution when paired with a SSD main drive.

Cons: -I would still recommend a SSD for your primary OS drive if budget allows.

Other Thoughts: -Jury is out on reliability. This is my first hybrid drive I've tested or used. I've only had the drive for a month now and haven't experienced any problem at all but only time will tell.

Corsair Gaming VOID Wireless RGB Gaming Headset - White
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: Good set of gaming headphones. The Dolby surround works very well for FPS gaming where sound stage and audio positioning is more important than absolute sound quality. Luckily it is easy quick to turn off and on, just hold the volume knob down for at least 1 full second and let go. The sound quality is good considering the price and other features of the headphone. I find myself using these to watch movies over my much pricier audiophile Sennheiser HD600 because of the wireless and Dolby surround.


Very comfortable to use for extended period because of the light clamping force of the headband but these comes at a price of noise isolation.

Wireless connection is great and haven't experienced any connection or interference issues at all.

Also works with Playstation 4 out of the box with some lost in feature. You lost everything but the basic stereo and mic but they do work well.

Cons: RGB lighting greatly diminish battery life so remember to charge it every night. Otherwise, turn off the RGB lighting and these can go several days of moderate to heavy use on a single charge.

As I mentioned in the Pros, the headphones have very light clamping force but these almost means the headphones let a lot of outside noise in and noise out at high volume. These are not for those wanting sound isolation from outside noise.

Other Thoughts: The design doesn't suite me but it's a personal preference. I think they should of went with a more minimalist and modern design to cut down on the bulk and weight.

Corsair Hydro Series H110i Extreme Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler Cooling. 280mm CW-9060026-WW
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs Great All in One but needs better QC on fans. 03/02/2016

This review is from: Corsair Hydro Series H110i Extreme Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler Cooling. 280mm CW-9060026-WW

Pros: A very clean and modern waterblock/pump design. Easy to install and clear instructions. The power is supplied by a SATA power connector instead of legacy molex connector.

The performance of the cooler is almost completely dictated your level of fan noise tolerance. The included static pressure fans can be set anywhere from a near completely silent 800 rpm to a maddening 2000 rpm that I doubt anyone could tolerate. Personally, I set the fans at a flat 900 rpm with wired resistors (see cons) for a consistent quiet system at all times. My i5 6500k overclocked to 4.4 ghz under stock voltage idles at 30 degree C and in the 50-60 degree C range under gaming load with ambient temperatures in the mid 70 deg F.

The RGB waterblock LED can be set to a static color, cycle through the entire color range, or better yet set to correspond to temperature or fan speed of the CPU or water temp or any other detected device like video card, HDD, SSD or case temp sensor (why you would is beyond me but you have that option). I have mines set to corresponds to the water temperature of the H110i.

Cons: One of the two supplied fan developed a rattle around the 1000-1200 rpm range after just two weeks, minus one egg. The fans also spin up at max rpm when the system is initially turned on, restarted, etc. Ultimately, I replaced the bad fan and wired both with a resistors directly to the 3 pin connectors and bypassed the Corsair software. Now they spin at very quiet constant 900 rpm at all times.

Other Thoughts: The USB connector uses a internal USB 2.0 port on the motherboard. This may be a con depending on your motherboard and you may have to choose between front USB2.0 panel or CorsairLink. My motherboard has 2 USB 2.0 ports so this is not an issue for me.
