This review is from: Corsair Raptor HS30 Dual 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset
Pros: They look cool.
Cons: Unless Newegg simply turned around and sent back my original order, these headphones have a design flaw. Any movement of the cable causes the audio to cut in and out between a mono and stereo like feed. I just figured the first pair had a short in the cable. The replacement pair had the exact same problem.
This was tried with two different computers and three different cell phones. It isn't a port issue on the connecting device.
Other Thoughts: When the cable was in just the right position the sound was pretty good, and I was really hoping that the first pair was just a fluke.
I hate to do it, but I'm just going to have to take the grandson down to Best Buy and let him try the headphones they have in their gamers section.
Pros: Case is OK for the money
Cons: The case I received was severely damagned, even though the box didn't show it. Wanted to get going on the grand kids build, but have to wait for this replacement.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looks cool with the contrasting colors on the heat spreader.
Cons: Doesn't work with MSI FM2-A75MA-E35. I tried both sticks, one at a time, in each slot. Got a no POST, no video situation. Installed a known working Patriot Viper stick and it POSTed perfectly. When I installed the Patriot stick it did notice that RAM amounts had changed. Since I find it highly unlikely that both sticks were bad, I'm guessing a conflict between the BIOS and SPD were the cause of failure.
Other Thoughts: Since this system is for my 80 year old mother-in-law, and she lives 3.5 hours away, 100% PnP is an absolute must. The motherboard doesn't support any type of RAM voltage control, so upping voltage is not an option.
I guess I will have to find something else to go into this box. I just hope getting credit from Newegg isn't too big of a hassle.
