PowerColor PCS+ AXR9 290 4GBD5-PPDHE Radeon R9 290 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Plently of power
-Seems to stay cool
-Runs stable (Now)
-Looks pretty
-Takes up a lot of space, and bigger is always better.

Cons: -Price...
-Not as powerful as I hoped (Upgrade from 5870 which has 1600 streamys and 1G, for reference.)
-Incredibly unstable out of the box
-Haven't tried OC yet because of stability issues.

Other Thoughts: When I received my card, it worked find for a week or so. Then it started crashing about once per day. It wasn't to much of a hassle, except with every crash, the frequency increased until it crashed about every 15 minutes I tried many things to make sure it wasn't my fault, including down clocking it.

After contacting PowerColor, they threw me a firmware update that fixed the crashing instantly. Though, I'm not sure what the issue really was. I still feel like my card is way underpowered and it in no way hits the marks reported by others...

Oh well tho, still works so I'm happy.

Specs:

Razer RZ07-01030100-R3U1 Tartarus - Membrane Gaming Keypad

5 out of 5 eggs First Keypad 05/03/2015

This review is from: Razer RZ07-01030100-R3U1 Tartarus - Membrane Gaming Keypad

Pros: -Incomparable improvement for gaming on a laptop!
-Ergonomically comfortable, hand seems to adapt to it rather quickly. I like the angle of the buttons and how they are setup.
-Software is nice, very simple, does what it needs to do. Zero issues with it so far.
-Refurbished, excellent condition!

Cons: -Flappy thumb button? It's default is Spacebar for jump. maybe I'm super dainty but that is not comfortable at all for me.
-Flappy thumb button broke.
-It's a bit light, seems to grip alright but it can slide when I get a bit excited.
-Green LED... I'd like to have other options... but I knew it didn't. Just seems like for $2 extra in production you could give her the full spectrum...
-The buttons stick to the sides a bit sometimes when not pushed directly straight down.
-Seems a bit high priced. It's the price of a Full size Mechanical keyboard yet you only get 1/3 the the space and it's Membrain...

Other Thoughts: As I use this for gaming on a laptop and travel back and forth a lot, the flappy thumb button has already broken after about 1 month of use. I dont care, I didnt like that button anyway. I made the little button above the thumb stick Spacebar as soon as I got it.

I like the Keypad.
Refurb @$39.99 I think it's worth it, but only as a portable substitute for Laptop gaming.

This review is from: Corsair Vengeance Airflow Memory Cooling Fan CMYAF

Pros: -Looks super Kew. (Choice of colors to match scheme!)
-Has a Fan!
-Cools RAM probably!

Cons: -Not actually sure what it's impact is... (Nothing says Merica like buying something that yealds no actual vaule cause it's RedWhite&Blue!)

-Could use some LEDs! (but you could just swap out the fan with an LED one. hehe)

-Price is kinda high for not really doing much, right..? (I got on sale for $26.99)

Other Thoughts: I actually planned on replacing the fan with a Red LED one. Almost a year now, still haven't done that...

#WorthIT!
