Pros: This processor offers incredible performance. Games (TitanFall, COD Advanced Warfare) run smoothly and effortlessly. The processor runs cool with my ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED 120mm cooler.
Other Thoughts: Installation on my ASUS Maximus VI Hero motherboard was quick and easy.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Tt eSPORTS KB-KNK008US KNUCKER Plunger Keyboard
Pros: Much better key response than a standard membrane type of keyboard. The absence of a Windows Start Menu key on the WASD side of the keyboard is an excellent feature. Bright red WASD and arrow keys are very easy to install. The anti-ghosting feature appears to work as it should. The price was right and I have no regrets about buying this product.
Cons: As others have mentioned, the low-contrast color of the text on the keys is very difficult to read under typical room lighting conditions. Seriously, if your source of lighting is coming from behind you, the lettering on the keys will not be visible. If Thermaltake wants to make this product a home-run deal they should use high contrast bright white lettering on all the keys.
Other Thoughts: While playing TitanFall I found myself stabbing the "G" key rather than the "F" key when I needed to eject, or I'd hit the "1" key instead of the "Q" key when I needed to deploy my tacticals. It was impossible to see the keys due to the low contrast color of the lettering. I ended up buying a cheap USB LED light (5 bucks) to illuminate the WASD side of the keyboard and that made it possible to see where I was at a glance.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I used the SeaSonic M12II 850 watt supply in my latest build and it has performed flawlessly. My new ASUS Maximus Hero (I-7 Haswell) system came up fine the first time and this power supply has handled the power requirements without flinching. I love the modular system for cables and the end result after installation is a very clean layout with only the cables you need present.
Cons: The only knock on this supply will probably not be of concern to most people but it was an issue at my location. The computer that the supply is installed in is used with a software defined radio. One of the requirements for use with an SDR is that the components need to be well filtered for RF emissions across the HF spectrum. I found the SeaSonic to be an emitter of RF oscillations at 60 KHz intervals from below the AM broadcast band to 30 MHz. This is an indication that the AC primary line is not de-coupled (flitered) adequately for RF. Note that a comparable Corsair 800 watt supply was perfectly clean in this regard. It was not difficult to overcome this shortcoming by utilizing an external common-mode AC line filter but for FCC emission compliance this really should be done by the manufacturer with internal components.
Other Thoughts: This appears to be a very solid power supply and a reliable performer.READ FULL REVIEW
