Pros: I cannot hear the GPU fans, even under max load it is silent.
Parts are top quality and the card feels very solid. No flimsy parts.
Barely bigger than my EVGA GTX 680 SC.
My first card with a backplate and I have to say it really does help with drooping, there is none. I also like the fact that all of the electrical connections and solder points on the PCB are completely covered.
My PC - My CPU is a FX-6200 overclocked to 4.4ghz "cpu upgrade coming soon".
8gb of mem. Even with the cpu bottleneck, used with this 1060, it is still more than enough for 60fps Ultra 1080p gaming.
I have only tried one game so far and that is DOOM. I selected the Ultra preset and selected Nightmare for allowable settings. Maxed out AA "TSSAA(8 TX) and "AF 16". Not once did the framerate drop below 60fps. My GTX 680 was dropping to 26fps on lower settings in the same areas. This 1060 is a beast card at 1080p.
Temps have not gone over 66c, very impressive at full load. I am using a "be quiet! SILENT BASE 600 WINDOW ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Black"

This review is from: Corsair M65 Vengeance USB Wired Laser Gaming Mouse
Pros: I have never felt such a smooth moving cursor "crosshair" "reticle" no matter if its set to fast or slow. Aiming in games is very precise! I am very happy to add another Corsair item to my PC setup. Sniper button is not too hard to reach and can be assigned to other functions which is handy if you play a game where you do not snipe or don't care to snipe. I did not need to remove any weight, its perfect for me. The mousewheel is wide and firm, you wont accidently scroll while using "mouse 3" in game. Using the scroll is nice and firm so you wont over scroll, nice for games or web browsing. I love the gritty finish. It will not slip out of your hands. The software is better than most "way better than Logitech". You can assign any key or command you want to any button. Solid mouse, does not feel or sound cheap like plastic mice. The wire is braided so it will not snag or feel like it catching if it rubs the edge of my desk, that means nothing to throw off my aim.
Cons: None I can think of. I wish I would have bought this sooner.
Other Thoughts: Blows the Logitech mice in the same price bracket away! I will buy this mouse or other Corsair mice like it in the future.READ FULL REVIEW
