Pros: Bang for your buck, this thing is insane. My girlfriend bought this for her computer - she spent less than I did on my i5 3700 and she gets better performance. Runs fairly cool, pretty stable, really nice overall. I haven't overclocked it yet - I usually save that for the end of the CPU's life when it's having a rough time handling the things I want to run with it.
Cons: Jeez this thing is loud. Even when the fan is running at 30%, I can hear it in another room. It's like a freakin' freight train. I have a full tower a few feet away from the mid tower that this one is in, and even with all 9 fans running at max speed, you can't hear them over the whine of this CPU cooler. I had to knock off one egg for that reason.
Other Thoughts: The noise is NOT a reason to avoid this processor. It's a great piece of hardware, and there are a thousand solutions to the noise issue.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAZER Black USB Wired Lycosa Mirror Special Edition Gaming Keyboard
Pros: This keyboard is pretty freakin' cool looking. There's a little touch panel that, while I've never used it, is probably extremely useful to people who control their music from the keyboard. The rubber keys do have a nice feel to them, and because of my setup, the headphone/microphone jack on the top of the keyboard was invaluable.
Cons: The keys have an extreme amount of resistance. My friends often joke about how I slam the keys when I type on their keyboards, but that's just how I learned to type after using this thing for a year. the "p" and "a" keys are especially bad for me, but they all have it to a degree. Even in this paragraph alone, I've had to correct 5 typos due to the keys not pushing down without an extreme amount of force. If you like to type lightly, this is absolutely not the keyboard for you. After a year, even though this keyboard is fully functional, I'm purchasing a new one (a different one) because I've grown so tired of constantly fixing unnecessary typos.
Other Thoughts: I'm sure my problem is a fairly unique situation, so consider that before you turn this keyboard down. It really is a beautiful keyboard.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EVERCOOL FAN-ALED12025B2 120mm Blue LED Case cooler
Pros: Moves a ridiculous amount of air, and it's EXTREMELY quiet. It's incredibly bright, too. Pretty much outperforming my old fan in almost every way so far. Hopefully it lasts a while!
Cons: It was incredibly hard to mount this and get the screws flush with the back of my case. They were made of a weaker metal than the actual fan was made of, so they didn't dig into the metal to hold it in place, they just stripped. Pretty big downer if you're looking for aesthetics, but no one ever sees the back of my case anyways, so it's not a huge deal.
Other Thoughts: Beautiful, high movement fan seems good in all areas, save for the screws.READ FULL REVIEW
