4 out of 5 eggs Good enough for getting started with a gaming keboard and mouse... 01/02/2016

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Commander LED Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Combo Bundle (Blue LED Model)

Pros: It is a cheap and easy solution for a basic entry-level gaming mouse and keyboard combo.

Cons: On the keyboard we got, one of the LEDs was not working properly for the back-lighting.
To do the lighting in the keyboard they simply used an LED strip on the bottom of the keyboard (the ones that are on white paper-thin plastic and have SMD LEDs and Resistors soldered on it, typically you cut the strip down to a desired length and solder on your power wires on), and use some clear plastic with white backing to propagate the light to the whole keyboard. But it works to get the back-lighting effect at low cost...
For me this was an easy fix as it was just a bad solder-joint on one of the LEDs, a quick re-flow of the solder and no more flickering light on the number-pad.

The back-lighting could also be brighter, as the lettering can be a bit dim in the dark.
For me seeing just the silhouette of the keys against the back-lighting is a big help, but then again my first back-lit keyboard was dimmer than this one and only lit up underneath the keys not illuminating the lettering.

Other Thoughts: My brother purchased this keyboard and mouse set for a little gaming system we are putting to together as a birthday present for his son.

Pros: Has a nice selection of features for overclocking.
Seems to be a good stable board right out of the box and handles my FX-9590 very well.

Cons: None that I can find so far.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace the Crosshair V Formula Z that died on me.

5 out of 5 eggs Wish they still had these in stock... 10/26/2015

This review is from: IPCQUEEN IPC-12025 120mm Case Fan

Pros: Low noise and long lasting!
I bought 8 of these fans back in 2011 for use on a 4x120 radiator in push-pull configuration. It is now 2015, and all 8 are working flawlessly.

Cons: NewEgg no longer carries them in stock. I don't think they make this bran anymore.

Other Thoughts: With proper maintenance these fans will last a long time. Underneath the IPCQUEEN sticker on the back of the fan is a rubber plug. This plug is for oiling the bearings of the fan (many fans out there have this feature), drop a few drops of oil in them regularly. (Every ~2,000 hours of operation, and whenever they start making noises or turn stiffly.)
