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.

Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-01 RED LED Black ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case ATX (not included) Power Supply
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I do not own one, but I've built 2 systems for friends using it..

It is very aesthetically pleasing, it's mostly tool less for hard drives and ODDs. All screws needed are included. It doesn't weigh 40lbs empty like my case. The standoffs for ATX are pre-installed.
It fits a GTX780, and R9-390.

Cons: Cable management, the struggle is real. Unless you are using a single 3.5"/2.5" drive, and ODD, wiring quickly becomes a hassle. Even with Modular PSU's.

As noted in another review, no cutout ABOVE the motherboard for the 8pin CPU power cable means you have to run it over the board, or route it first and mount the mobo on top of it.

Rear side panel leaves little room for cables.

Using both top fan spots leaves little room for wires and requires fans be installed afterwards. With a tower air cooler one was blocked. An AIO cooler allowed both to be used in the second build.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I dreaded the second build after building #1. It was essentially the same experience as it had 2 HDDs/SSDs and an optical drive. Which if you think about it, it's kind of sad. Both used modular PSU's. I'd hate to see what a non-modular build would be like.

I don't know if the Spec-02 or 03 are any bigger, but if they are get one those.

IMHO this would be okay/fine if you have custom PSU cables like the ones from Cablemod, which are much more flexible than standard PSU cables. PSU cables were the worst part of the build. But if you can afford those, you can afford to get a case with more room.

5 out of 5 eggs Update to Anonymous review 11/03/2015

This review is from: BitFenix BFA-MAG-30GK15-RP Magnetic LED-Strip 30CM 15 LED Green

Pros: The 4pin adapters I bought worked, the lights look awesome in the case. The lights are hooked up to my Enthoo Primo LED on/off button and it works.

Cons: Still no cons.

Other Thoughts: Like it enough I ordered another 2 sets.
