Pros: -Very cool Card (50-60 degrees under load)!
-Runs every game on max without a hitch!
Other Thoughts: I used to buy "reference" cards and every time they'd heat up to about 80-90 degrees. Then you end up tweaking the fans and cranking them up and now you got that noise going on. This thing barely reaches 60 degrees under full on load running any modern game on Ultra (Planetside 2, Guild Wars 2, etc) and barely makes a sound. Best of all it looks great.
The ASUS software it comes with has a number of presets including a preset for overclocking for Games. I tend to use that instead. Was very handy if you are afraid of messing with voltages and such or just want to monitor performance. Hit the "G" and you are set.
I would have listed the cost as a con but honestly you're paying for a beast card and you get one. I could see the size being bad if you wanted two of these or something but otherwise wasn't a huge deal.
Owned for 6+ Months and not a single issue!
This review is from: Logitech Black/Silver Cordless Optical TrackMan
Pros: Scroll wheel and a number of extra buttons is awesome and I haven't changed the batteries despite heavy usage in over a month and a half.
Other Thoughts: I was a pretty religious user of the "Trackman Marble" product (I still have 3 lying around 1 for my work PC and 2 for my home PCs) but got pretty tired of not having a scroll wheel. I was fairly skeptical cause it was wireless (I hate batteries) and some of the reviews but now am glad I bought it. I had to adjust the roller ball orientation and once I did and got it to where I was comfortable it took around a week to adjust to this newer version of it. I actually prefer it now.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Fast Boot Times
Good Update Speeds
Cons: Randomly was causing my system to freeze till hard booted. SSD came with Firmware 0009 installed. Ruled out everything else in my system (overheating, etc) and it all came back to the SSD. Tried numerous fixes and tweaks but freezes persisted. Freezes always occurred with a browser open and the active window (which perplexes me).
Other Thoughts: I have reinstalled my OS on my mechanical drive (depressing going back to 50s boots) and set it up as a slave to install games on or something see if I still get issues.READ FULL REVIEW
