CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Cooler Master Storm QuickFire Rapid 02/10/2012

This review is from: CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches

Pros: - Rubber coated surface and a really hefty feel, top quality build altogether
- Extra keys and keycap puller included
- Best price I've seen on a mechanical keyboard
- Windows key lock
- Multimedia keys are easy to use (hold the FN key and then use them)
- Excellent look and laser engraved keys, love the font
- Detachable USB cable, PS/2 adapter gives you NKR0
- No numberpad - more room for larger mousepad and joystick
- Mechanical switches are over 9000x better than rubber domes, MX Blues let you know when you can let go of the key due to the tactile bump/click at the actuation point (half way down or perhaps a little more)
- Louder - I love the sound!

Cons: - No backlight

Other Thoughts: The QuickFire Rapid is the best bang for your buck keyboard. I don't have this particular one, but the red switch model, which is the same thing aside for the paintjob and of course the switch type but I'm familiar with both switches. Keep in mind that the red switch model as well as the black/brown might not make it to newegg or any other retailer.

CM Storm Sirus - True 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset with Control Module
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Cooler Master Storm Sirus 10/15/2011

This review is from: CM Storm Sirus - True 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset with Control Module

Pros: - Very solid build quality with a nice heft to it
- Despite the heft, it's the most comfortable headset I've ever worn. Both pads go right over your ears, and the top padding adds a ton of relief.
- 5.1 surround support with 7.1 emulator
- Fantastic sound quality all around
- Bass is surprisingly good
- Includes both USB input and 3.5mm audio input, with gold plated connectors
- Control console is very convenient
- Looks awesome, gotta love the red glow on the sides
- Software is great - has a ton of features and allows for lots of customization. You can enable an equalizer and adjust it to your liking, 2.1/4.1/5.1 surround, 7.1 emulator, voice changer, adjustable sample rate, environment effects, bass tweaking, etc.
- Mic folds up and can bend to pretty much any position
- Two ear pads included - breathable microfiber and leatherette noise cancelling pads

Cons: - Drivers are only 30mm, and 40mm for the sub... I would have liked to see 50mm all around and maybe even 60mm for the sub
- Not a true 7.1 headset but that's obvious
- Microphone barely works when in USB mode. If you use it a lot, you'll have to abandon the control console and go with the 3.5mm plugs.

Other Thoughts: This is Cooler Master's first headset and it is great. It has only one problem - microphone functionality in USB mode. I hope this is fixed in future firmware updates. I would have liked to see larger drivers, but oh well. It still sounds excellent.

EVGA P55 FTW SLI 132-LF-E657-KR LGA1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Neutral color scheme. Goes great with any setup, unless you dislike all of the red lights.
- Blinking red E is cool. CPU temperature monitor is awesome and it displays codes. Status indicator LED for each PCI-E slot is nice to have.
- PCI-E disable jumpers, onboard CMOS reset and power buttons, clear CMOS switch on I/O shield plate, voltage read points, LGA 775 heat sink compatibility. This motherboard is just extremely convenient.
- EVGA Control Panel included. Fits into an external 3.5" slot. Has CMOS reset button, power button, PCI-E disable jumpers, CPU temp monitor and overclocking features. Great feature.
- Awesome overclocking board. High end silicon/polymer capacitors, no electrolytics spotted. 12+2 phase PWM for cleaner power, great BIOS options with bootup and eventual voltage options.
- Dual supplemental CPU power connectors, but this is overkill for anyone using air cooling. Supplemental PCI-E power connector (4-pin molex) for reliability with multi GPU set

Cons: It's not a P55 F.T.W. 200?

Other Thoughts: Well I have a few more pros that didn't fit into the above box... I also like how many PCI-E slots it has including one above the video card slots. So you can run a PCI-E x1 device as well as three video cards. Not the best for Tri-SLI or Tri-CF due to one of the slots being x4, but great for 2x SLI + dedicated PhysX or folding.

Got my Intel Core i5 760 to 4.2 GHz in just a few minutes. Took 2 or 3 tries and perfectly stable. Great motherboard for overclockers.
