4 out of 5 eggs The cooling is a bit overkill, but not a bad thing. 07/24/2016

This review is from: ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 6GB ROG STRIX VR Ready HDMI 2.0 DP 1.4 Auto-extreme Graphics Card

Pros: It's got 980 level performance, using less juice to do it.
Serious overkill on the cooling
Due to the overkill, it's also inaudible at full load even with an overclock applied and a custom fan profile.

It has 8pin PCI-E power so it won't be power starved. I believe the FE only has a 6pin.

Cons: Size, the cooler make this thing huge. It's both longer and wider than the Gigabyte Windforce x3 7950 it replaced in my friends computer. If it were much longer it wouldn't have fit in his Corsair Vengeance C70.

And the only other con is price. It costs more than the FE with FE clocks. -1 Egg

Other Thoughts: For my friend whom the card was for, the overkill cooling is a good thing. His computer room does not have A/C and during benchmarking it with Firestrike it maxed at 60c both Stock and with an OC and custom fan profile. Which is quite a feat considering how warm it was in the room.

Pros: Just updating my previous review. As of 361.75 my drivers are pretty much completely stable now.

Cons: none currently


5 out of 5 eggs They are great, I reviewed these unfairly somewhere else 01/31/2016

This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia 200 Gaming Headset – Proton Yellow

Pros: Close to the V2's physically. The V3's headband was tighter/shorter and didn't fit as good on my bigger head.
50mm Drivers
Clear mids and highs.
Great bass(when amped)
Great for gaming. Situational awareness is a must when gaming, and I can hear the rustling of gear from the soldiers in Battlefield. And I know when someone is just around the corner or on the other side of a wall.

Cons: Cord is short compared to the V2's with no extension. The V2's and 3's came with an extension cord. In fact I'm using my V2's extension to remedy the short cord.

Other Thoughts: When I initially reviewed these, I assumed they were at fault with a lack of bass/punch. Turns out my Xonar DG's amp was a bit worn out. I replaced it with a new one and they sound more like I recall the V2/V3's bass wise. I just plugged my V2's in and these sound better overall. And fit a little better too.

I hear lots of stuff my friends don't when gaming, I'm asked multiple times a night when playing with friends "How did you know I was there" I say "Dude, I can hear your soldier breathing" a lot to mess with them. The Headphone Amp on the Xonar helps there too. It's so loud I have to turn down the volume in game so I can hear them talking in Teamspeak and I can still hear the little giveaways like gear rustling when the soldiers move/stop and footsteps.
