Pros: this set in general is a very good gaming kit. ill get to the keyboard last because its why I put -1 egg. the mouse is amazing I absolutely love it it has decent weight and two extra buttons on the side. I use those for just about everything in games. also it has multiple dpi settings which you can quickly change on the fly with a setting change. onto the headset. its good quality sound wise and the biggest thing to me is that it fits my head!!! I have a huge head lol. onto the keyboard its very nive layout pretty standard nothing crazy I don't use the macros much cuz I don't play mmos.
Cons: the only problem I had is with the keyboard ts not as advertised. the real imperator keyboard has customizable leds for backlighting and two usb ports in the back they should atleast point out that its a downgraded version but apart from that it is pretty niceREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SILVERSTONE HE02 CPU Cooler
Pros: this thing is just huge I would trust this thing to cool my car engine. regardless of its size it blocks nothing (unless you add a fan see other thoughts.) I have four g.skill ripjaws x series with those nnice big heat spreaders and they don't even touch. you do have to take it off though to add more ram unless you are the master of angles but that's not that complex.
Cons: due to its large size install is a bit of a pain in the buttox but I found a way around it. put on every single mounting part specific to your setup and then slide the heatsink under the middle bar so in theory you only have one side to screw in and make sure you have a very long screwdriver
Other Thoughts: so about adding a fan. you can add a fan in either a push or pull setup but the problem I ran into is that if you have it situated horizontally so that its length is longer then its height then it might block your first pci-e slot with a fan attached I assume with a bit of tinkering you could set it up verticall so that its offset upwards but ill do some measurements on that.
im running off of the asus maximus VI hero 1150 so I assume anything else that is atx and obv e-atx will be a perfect fit sfor anything you want to add
also in-win gr one case full atx tower it is roughly 8 inches tall give or take so make sure your case is wide enough
Pros: Quite possibly the fastest processor out at the moment.
Cons: See other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: Obviously this is like absolute top of the line computing procssors but how much do you really need it. Unless your career is hased upon video editing/encoding you do not truthfully need this. With the new haswell processors you can get plenty of performance out of the 4770k with about a 700$ price drop. Be smart with your money ppl and know what its meant for before you buy it.READ FULL REVIEW
