This review is from: RAZER Goliathus SPEED Edition Soft Mouse Pad - Extended
Pros: Smooth feel
Strong surface grip
Cons: Razer logo a bit bright
Other Thoughts: First, before buying this, do your measurements. I measured my desk to ensure I wanted this beast, because I have my monitors closer to the front of my desk than most. Unfortunately, I had to move my monitors a bit back about 1/2'' because I was a bit off when measurements with a small ruler. Regardless, the pad is pretty good.
My only complaint is that the Razer logo is pretty bright and would sometimes lead my eyes away from my screen, which is easily fixed by flipping the pad to the logo is under my keyboard.
The mat also serves as a good keyboard grip, because prior to buying this, the rubber on my keyboard's wrist rest was worn out, so it would slowly slide away from me.
Overall pretty satisfied with this pad.
Pros: Good temps
Cons: It didn't do my taxes for me
Other Thoughts: This card is well worth my purchase when I bought a new box in early February. Sitting at 29c right now, and the highest I've seen it is 55c when playing BF3/CS:GO. I am able to play games as graphically demanding as BF3 on Ultra settings 1920x1080 with a constant 60+ frames. Well worth the cost.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Thermaltake Level 10 GT (VN10001W2N) Black SECC / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case with Four Fans - 1 x 200mm Colorshift side fan, 1 x 200mm top fan, 1 x 200mm front fan and 1 x 140mm rear fan
Pros: Very roomy.
Main access swings open - No annoying thumbscrews for most of the case work.
Many USB ports.
Cons: Tightly fastened screws.
Left panel/door fan cannot be replaced.
Finicky fan LED controls.
Not a lot of room for cable routing.
Oddly placed SATA power cable.
Other Thoughts: First off, I was impressed with the amount of room this case has to install components. I never felt cramped while building my new PC. The case also has a handle if you insist on taking this thing between rooms, or to LAN parties, but I would advise positioning your stonger arm below the case to bear the brunt of the weight, since it is doubtful the handle would sustain a large number of trips. the case also features many front USB ports for external storage, or other connections.
The downsides to this case are numerous, but not enough to make me hate the case with a burning passion, but are enough to make me choose not to recommend the case to friends.
First off, my plan was to remove the top fan to install a Corsair H100i, but two of the screws were on extremely tight. I stripped the screw heads trying to remove the screws, but luckily I had a larger phillips head to deal with the stripped heads, and with pressure was able to remove the screws.
Second, the side door fan cannot be replaced, since its cabling is wired such that when contact is made between the case door and the body of the case, the fan will have power.
Third, the case has finicky LED controls, and I can never set it to the color I want without pushing the button many times.
Fourth, the case does not feature much room for cable management. One is required to squeeze cables in order to put on the right side panel.
Finally, which made #4 even more frustrating, the SATA power connector for the hot-swappable bays is located on the far bottom tray. What makes this an issue is the fact that most PSU SATA cables feature many connectors on the same line. This means I had to use two SATA cables from my PSU, one for the DVD drive, and another for the drive bays. Even with that unfavorable configuration, one has to pull the power connector up from the bottom of the case to connect it, making the closing of the right panel not so easy.
Overall a frustrating experience getting the case set up, but alright once everything was done.
