3 out of 5 eggs Great features, but not good for small hands 07/25/2014

This review is from: EVGA TORQ X10 901-X1-1103-KR Wired Laser Gaming Mouse

Pros: Great aesthetics, and the adjustable LED means you don't have to worry too much about matching with your other peripherals/build.

Great features for the price. Adjustable height is a nifty feature, and there's plenty of adjustable weights. The scroll wheel has the right amount of tension on it for FPS games, and doesn't feel too looses or tight. Adjustable DPS on the fly is nice, but I never really use it.

Click buttons have good tension at the tips, but...

Cons: One crippling flaw (at least for me) is ergonomics. I have rather small hands (just shy of 7 inches from base of wrist to tip of middle finger), and because of the way the base of the mouse is tapered, my wrist has to sit pretty far back for me to grip the mouse (I use a claw grip, but I don't see how a palm grip would benefit from this). Even at the lowest height setting, my fingers are far back enough that a lot of tension is required to click, and I have to use my fingertip to scroll the wheel. I have no such problems with Logitech Mice or the Corsair M60 I'm currently using.

Other Thoughts: The mouse also isn't particularly comfortable to hold, as it's an ambidextrous mouse. It's not BAD, but in terms of comfort just feels like any old mouse.

ASUS GTX770-DC2OC-2GD5 G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Plays nearly all games on max (as of this writing), very cool and quiet. When running, I rarely see it break 70 C. Also, comes with a brushed aluminum backplate installed that looks GREAT in a windowed case.

Cons: Voltage locked. This is a real shame, as I feel this card has far more overclocking potential than can be realized using the provided voltage, considering the effectiveness of the cooler.

Other Thoughts: Someone mentioned GPU sag - this is normal for cards of this size, and it's unavoidable. The backplate that's included does help some, but it's still there.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7970 DirectX 11 100351SR 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card OC with Boost

Pros: Great performance, voltage unlocked and easy to overclock. Achieved a 20% overclock quite easily.

Great cooler, which keeps the card below 62 C at stock speeds, and does it quietly. Overclocked keeps the card below 72. Fans stay pretty quiet at stock speed, and only mildly audible when the card is overclocked and running at full load.

Cons: HUGE. Even though this thing uses 2 PCIe slots, the cooler extends outwards to block a third PCIe slot, pretty much rendering it useless. In addition, this thing is so big it sags towards the front end of the computer, unless you put the computer on its side or prop it up somehow.

Other Thoughts: The dual BIOS switch is a nice idea, but it only goes switches it from 950 MHz to 1000 MHz at stock speeds, and I haven't gotten any noticeable overclock gains using the second BIOS. Plus, to overclock the second you have to use the "force constant voltage option" in Afterburner/Trixx, leading to higher power consumption. No thanks.
