This review is from: LOGISYS Computer LDXRM12C RGB LED Strip and IR Control
Pros: Inexpensive, very bright -- at least that's how I remember it before it blinded me!
Cons: Adhesive is not very good. My light strip fell off and I had to reattach it. Also, the connector at the end of the LED strip isn't very secure.
Other Thoughts: I bought this so that I could see when my PC was dusty and needed to be cleaned (everything in it is black and difficult to see without light). I can definitely see it now! And, to be honest, the colors are fun.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I installed this card in a new build (ASUS Z97-E MB, i7-4790K CPU). And it's factory overclocked out of the box. Wow. The only game I play is COD Modern Warfare 4, and this sucker cranks. I turned off the FPS limit in COD and FRAPS reported ridiculous FPS numbers. At some points during gameplay it was reporting over 750 fps. Ridiculous. Whether that's accurate or not isn't important. What is important is that the game runs smoother than silk. I've now set the FPS limit to 125, and gameplay is just as good.
And it's quiet. The fans don't even turn until the card reaches into the mid 60c range. During normal PC use, it's absolutely dead silent. Bravo, ASUS.
Cons: This card is bulky and heavy, if that makes a difference to you. Of course, that's more of an observation than a con.
Other Thoughts: I would absolutely recommend this card. I wanted my new build to be quiet, and this card certainly is while at the same time performing in a stellar fashion.
As an aside, to keep things quiet I have a quiet Fractal Design Define S case, an EVGA 850 G2 power supply (the fan doesn't run until it get hot -- similar to the video card), and a be quiet! Dark Rock 3 CPU cooler. Finally, a quiet PC.
Pros: This is a great CPU. Everything runs great and I overclocked mine to 4.6GHz with air cooling (on an ASUS Z97-E motherboard). Not much else to say except to step up to a faster processor is going to cost $$$.
Cons: It didn't leap out of the box and install itself.
Other Thoughts: I recommend this CPU. Using my motherboard's automated overclocking utility in BIOS (a no-brainer), it jumps up to 4.6GHz. IntelBurnTest reported the CPU as stable at that speed. You could probably push it further by manually overclocking and using water cooling, but why bother?READ FULL REVIEW
