Pros: -The keyboard is solid. Its not made of steel but for plastic, it can take a beating.
-I see people worrying about the feet of keyboards alot, so ill put this oen to rest. The feet on this keyboard are exactly identical to those on the back of School keyboards (Dell/Gateway Based Computers),
Which means they are solid too, but i wouldnt be slamming the keyboard down hard any time soon.
-LED options are great, Blue is better for low to med light operation, while red is great for dark lighting (my opinion)
Cons: -Will say that you cannot see the keys even in a well lit room very easily if you have the LEDs shut off, but i don't plan on turning them off anyhow.
Other Thoughts: I love the keyboard so far, considering what i paid for it ($38) BUT IF you have the money for a better and more reknowned keyboard, i'd buy that instead.
Overall, not a bad keyboard but its not perfect. So far i live it!
This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case
Pros: I've had this case for about 7 months now and it has served me very well. Despite what others say, this case is NOT small, whatsoever. Its not Huge but there about a foot of Video Card space, more than large enough for the largest video cards like the GTX 680 and HD 7950 (Like mine) haha
Great Air flow!
I have a push pull system comprised of the fans that come with the case and 1 extra (in one of the 2 fan mounts on the top) and everything stays below 33C, except the cpu which rarely hits above 45C (i7+Hyper 212)
Dust is a synch to clean out thanks to the dual hand-screw removable panels, and the push-click top fan mount grate.
Also there's fan mount screw holes in the main side panel that can allow 2x 120MM fans or the 1x 200mm that comes with it which is nice
Cons: 2 of the 4 hand-screws (one on each side panel) seems to be slightly stripped but isnt a problem for me unless i tighten them too much, but every computer part is different, so goes life. Not worth a removal of an egg though.
Other Thoughts: I paid $130 for the case and now its $95!!! Don't miss out on the great Corsair quality.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: This heatsink dropped the temps on my i7-3770K@4.2GHz by... !!!30 DEGREES!!!
Its absolutely phenomenal, i do not regret buying this thing at all whatsoever. Was running at temps close 95C when it was OC'd to 4.2 (TOO much) but now it hasnt gone over 65C, usually around 50-58C.
Cons: The size if you have a small case. Its abut the width of your numeric side of you keyboard just so you know the size refernce, the dimensions are in the details tab, but this wasn't an issue for anyhow.
You will also need to remove your motherboard before installng, unless you have a duel removable side panel case like mine (haha).
Other Thoughts: You know when you have a cheapo car, or guitar even, and its much much better than the expensive one your friend owns simply because it was made right the first time? This same principle goes for The Hyper 212, i hope CoolerMaster keeps at this kind of quality and inventiveness!READ FULL REVIEW
