Pros: Great response time. Great backlighting brightness. Screen is handy for telling CPU and RAM usage, and the time.
Cons: When I plug my headset into the ports, the keyboard restarts and the headphones don't work.
Overall Review: Still got to give it 5 stars due to the fact I do not use headsets much. But definitely bad for someone who needs or wants to use it.
Pros: -Nice tactile feel -Decent backlight -Quality frame -Typing is comfortable, aside from the bad switches (see other thoughts) -Great reaction times during gaming
Cons: -Switches are very cheap (see more in "Other thoughts" -Razer Synapse is terrible
Overall Review: After about 3 months of use, the typing aspect of the keyboard began declining in quality. When typing a message into a chat, or starting a new paragraph for a document, the Enter key would not register. This would happen 8/10 times while using this keyboard. However, I am a very rapid typer, often making spelling mistakes, but fixing them just as fast as normal typing. I believed this to be the reason of the Enter key not registering upon my quick actuation of the switch, and confirmed when the key would register when pressed at a slower pace. Despite this problem, the keyboard worked fine, but was quickly replaced by my current Logitech G910 Orion Spark. I may never purchase Razer products as long as their low quality persists.
It's fast, but not a good experience for me
Pros: -Fast, high fps in the most demanding of games -Quiet, with custom fan profile keeping it below 65C at all times -Cool, *with custom fan profile -Overclocks well, mine is stable at 1500Mhz on the core, and 8200 effective on the VRAM.
Cons: -Nvidia driver crashed daily, until I realized that GPU Boost 2.0 was overclocking the card so high that it was unstable. -I had to manually overclock the card to a stable clock speed so that the driver wouldn't crash every 10 minutes -Nvidia control panel is much slower and less easy to comprehend than AMD Catalyst Control Center
Overall Review: Despite my problem with the driver crashing being fixed, mostly, I will still go back to AMD as soon as I can get the money to do so. Here I come, Crossfire R9 Fury X's, or maybe even R9 Fury X2!
Great power supply!
Pros: -Quiet -Doesn't output much heat, even under high load -Provides stable power for my GTX 980 and i7 4790K, both overclocked substantially
Cons: Not modular, but I knew that when I bought it.
Overall Review: This power supply has been through many upgrades. Since my purchase of it I have upgraded from an AMD FX-6350 to an Intel Core i7-4790K, and from an AMD Radeon HD-7790 to an Nvidia Geforce GTX 980. This power supply has held up through the time I have had it, and hopefully will last me a few more years to come.
Pros: -Silent running at full load right beside me on my desk -Efficient cooling capacity, keeps my FX-6350 under 60 degrees Celsius overclocked to 4.4Ghz -Rather small, doesn't block my RAM slots on my mobo -Doesn't stress my board with its weight
Cons: None at all.
Overall Review: I purchased this cooler to replace the stock AMD cooler, and I am greatly impressed! Was keeping my CPU right under max temp, but was fixed by turning off "Cool and Quiet" and setting to max RPM. Decreased my temps enough to put a decent overclock. Will be carrying over to my new Intel build, with an i7-4790K
