- Easily installed in any mobo/PC 8 years old to modern.
- Faster than WD Blue drives, and about the same as WD Black series.
Cons: -None. Been working well for me for years now no issues at all.
Other Thoughts: - Used for OS-system images/ backups/Music/Data now with a Sandisk SSD as primary OS drive. Great combo.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - After nearly two years of use still extremely fast and all I need.
- Runs very cool (especially with an aftermarket HSF), and was easy to install.
Cons: -No cons at all.
Other Thoughts: - Since the 6th gen Intel 4690k has been out for some time I would definitely recommend that one it's the replacement for the older 5th gen 4670k, and is nearly identical to the 4670k in all respects, save some very small TIM/Heat/Thermal chacacteristic improvements that Intel made which result in about a 2-3c temperature difference. If you have one of these 4670k processors then you already know how fast it is and I see no need to upgrade for some time to come. No bottlenecks for high end GPU's with regards to gaming performance, and that is the main thing about owning any Intel I5/I7 processor since the Ivy Bridge era you are pretty much good-to-go as even those processors are still doing quite nicely .READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Turtle Beach X12 XBOX 360 Headset
Pros: - Not overly large
- Easy hookup
Other Thoughts: I got these locally when I sold my main I7 rig and put together a rig from some parts I had ordered here before with a 4670k and an I5 4670. My nice soundcard went with the sold rig, and I was stuck for now with onboard sound. I saw a pair of these sitting in the XBOX section of the local store here store and googled the model and reviews on my Samsung S5. They looked decent so I decided to try them out. I was really surprised with what you get quality wise for around $60.00 you get a nice headset/mic with the USB amplifier and standard green/pink hookups - which was nice.No issues or loss of sound quality on my front panel USB line/MIC ports of a Coolermaster Elite 430.
The amplifier nicely boosts whatever onboard sound/soundcard you have these hooked up to. In my case -- it's Realtek ALC 892. Don't get me wrong the sound isn't quite as good as the Asus Xonar - Grado setup I was using before but it's about 90-95% of the quality most of the time for normal to mid-high volume levels. Bass works nice, as do the inline volume and mic controls, and best of all it completely frees up my one extra usable PCIe slot that can be used on the mATX MSI Z87M G43 board I have. Movies and PC games sound great!
I do highly recommend this headset for the PC gamer if you are in a pinch for something new or need space on your motherboard. You won't regret it!
