This review is from: G.SKILL RIPJAWS KM780 MX Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown Switches
Pros: Great feel and types very fast. Solid build made from metal with no twisting, bending, or creaking, and the packaging is top notch as well. The back lit keys are nice and bright and are also adjustable to give you the perfect amount of light without ghosting. The included headphone and mic inputs along with the extra USB make it easy to hook up for gaming without needing to get to your PC every time. The gaming keys are very easy to use with a raised d-pad style shape to WSAD making finger placement very quick and easy to find without needing to look down ever. Solid volume wheel is quick and easy to use and everything works perfect! Comes with a easy to use tool to change out the gaming keys to standard keys whenever you feel the need. The wire is solid and wrapped in wire mesh which further adds to durability.
Cons: Typing is pretty loud on it. The price is pretty high for a keyboard but its not the only one. The cord is short making the added inputs almost pointless but not totally. The wire mesh on the cable makes the cable very stiff and this might cause an issue for tight corners and adds stress to the USB port if not able to run straight to it. Takes a bit of time to change out all the keys from gaming to normal.
Other Thoughts: Overall I'm very happy with it. The Keys are lit nice and bright and probably the best I've seen on any of my other keyboards to date. I want to type on this thing because its very smooth and fast even with the gaming keys installed after a bit of getting used to it. The entire build screams of excellent quality to both the fit and finish of it. I use the added USB port for my wireless mouse which fixed my range problem instantly I was having with it.
The only thing I would change is the length of the cord. I'd love to have it detachable and be able to use my own cords for added versatility.
Pros: Very nice looking card with exceptional performance in my build. I'm using it with an AMD 5800K APU and I'm running ESO maxed out at over 45fps and sometimes maxing at 99fps at 1080p. This is without any overclocking whatsoever. Card runs very quiet and stable without any crashing or freezing issues. After running ESO for a couple hours the heat pipes are just barely above room temperature. Great price from Newegg!
Cons: Requires two power plugs and is fairly large which might be a problem for some although it fits in my micro ATX case without any issues. Only a 2GB version so it might not handle higher resolutions at higher settings.
Other Thoughts: I'm very pleased with this card. I was worried that running it with my APU would bottleneck it and I'm sure it has to some extent but I'm very happy to be playing ESO on ultra and although my frame rate does dip down on occasion to lower than 30 its only for a moment and I don't think its the cards fault but rather the APU build.
Gigabyte FM2 microATX Mobo
8GB Gskill sniper elite 1866Mhz DDR3 RAM
AMD A-series 5800k trinity APU
Corsair RM1000 PSU
480GB SATA3 SSD
Pros: Reliable 1000 watts
Modular design with sturdy cables and plugs
Hookups for nearly anything
Very quiet large fan
Awesome build quality
Comes with a 2 bags and tons of cables
This power supply has quite a bit of good going for it. It screams quality with it's extremely nice packaging that caries through to the build of the PSU itself. Nice large fan that makes almost no noise whatsoever even under a load while playing games on max settings! Comes with tons of cables to cover just about any build. All the internal components are top notch and designed to last a very long time. All the cables are packaged in the included heavy duty bag to keep them organized and away from all those extra cables you already own and makes it easy to make additions to your build in the future. The PSU itself looks almost military and comes in a very nice velvet bag plus you even get a nice looking badge for your case.
Cons: Longer and heavier than my last power supply and it barely fit in my micro ATX case. Could be an issue for some smaller cases with bottom mount PSU. Price is a bit high but I think it's justified with its good quality build and high output. All the cables are covered in a thick mesh which looks cool but makes dusting a little harder.
Other Thoughts: I have to say that this is the best modular PSU I've ever had. I'm very impressed with the quality from the box to the unit and cables. I'm not powering a huge computer that demands a ton of power but I've never heard the fan running and my system is very stable. I'm running an AMD 5800k APU, Gigabyte micro ATX FM2 MOBO, 8 gigs of Sniper 1866 RAM, XFX R9 380X 2GB video card, 2 HDDs, DVD/RW combo drive, and a 480 GB SSD. and 4 fans. I play ESO on ultra and I never hear my PC over the house noises.
If you are looking to build a new rig and want to take your next PSU with you to your next one after it then this is it! It'll power your systems for quite a long time. I like having all that extra power now so I don't need to worry about trying to take too much later. As always Newegg rocks!!
