Phanteks PH-F140MP 140 mm PWM, High Static Pressure Radiator Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Very high quality - but quite audible 12/07/2014

This review is from: Phanteks PH-F140MP 140 mm PWM, High Static Pressure Radiator Fan

Pros: These fans can push some air for sure. High static pressure which is what I need for my H110 280mm AIO. The cabling is very high quality. PWM, so you can the speed exactly as you see fit.

Cons: The fan was running at 60% by default, and is pretty much silent. However, once you bump that up to 70% it can certainly be heard. They are quite pricey as well, but I bought them on sale for $17.99.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend these only if you really need high static pressure. They're ideal if your primary need is a quiet setup.

SCOSCHE Black RH600BK 3.5mm Connector Reference On Ear Headphones (Black)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Decent headphones, but cable is too short 10/27/2014

This review is from: SCOSCHE Black RH600BK 3.5mm Connector Reference On Ear Headphones (Black)

Pros: Good sound for the casual listener and gamer. Fits nicely on the head, ear padding is decent.

Cons: The cable is very short, only about 3ft long. I had to purchase a separate extension just so I can use these headphones while sitting at my desk. Keep this in mind if you have you're a traditional desktop user.

They don't completely cover the ear. After long periods of using them it can get a little uncomfortable.

Other Thoughts: I got these on sale for $24.99 shipped, which is a good price. Just make sure you buy an extension cord with it if you have your PC on the floor.

MSI GTX 970 GAMING 4G GeForce GTX 970 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great cooling
8-pin + 6-pin
High quality components
Silent when idle.

I bought this to replace my aging 770 2GB, since I run at 2560x1600p. I saw a 17% increase in Unigine Valley, and a 38% increase in 3D Mark Firestrike.

Cons: The speed throttles down when under load once you reach the TDP limit. The power limit is capped at 110% on stock BIOS. During gaming, the voltage will drop randomly, and it's hard for the card to maintain its top boost speed.

This has been well documented from other reviews and internet forums. It's quite annoying since you can't really reach this card's full potential without 3rd party BIOS utilities which I'm sure will void your warranty.

I don't know why MSI limits the card to 110% when it's built for high power delivery (8-pin and 6-pin and military grade components). Perhaps an MSI rep can commend and explain the rationale.

Another Con is that the heatpipes stick up high, so the card may not fit in all cases. I have read that this card WILL NOT fit in the Corsair Air 240. Please be aware.

The mousepad that came with the card has a strong, pungent smell making it useless, IMO.

Other Thoughts: i7-4770k @ 4.5Ghz
ASUS Z97 Pro V-Edition
16GB 1866 CAS 9
2x Seagate 600 256GB SSD
