Overall Review: you would not regret buying it unless you are one of those pathetic people you see all the time in reviews that expect $2000 features for $399 and give a product a bad review because of their own incompetence and lack of common sense....if you are not one of those people you will absolutely love this monitor!
Pros: - Very good components, especially the evga 3080 ftw3 ( people are selling this model for the price of this entire PC)
- Crushed every single game in 4k maxed out and above 60 fps
- Good cable management
- Well assembled
- Arrived well packaged
- Good case for airflow, i get pretty good temperatures an all components and it's not that bad looking either
- It is pretty good looking if not the best looking prebuild PC out there
Cons: - The TT aio cooler is not bad but this CPU overclocked at 5.2 is way too strong for it and runs very hot when used at high percentages.
- I had to open the case, cut the zipties and install the AIO controller in order to change the mode and the color on the RGB. They plugged it in the right slot on the motherboard with the right cable but for some reason the mobo would not recognize it so i don't think it was their fault
- It is expensive but considering the GPU shortage and the other prebuild options out there, it's fine....
Overall Review: - Some people complain about the power supply, maybe the new gpu bios update for the 50W power boost could be the issue when you overclock, otherwise i think 750 is enough even with some OC
I've always built my own PCs but i had to purchase this one because of the GPU shortage and except for the AIO and the power supply i would have probably pretty much bought the same or very similar components. The difference would be the price....
Pros: Incredibly cheap
Pretty good noise canceling
Super comfortable even after many hours of use because the pads are soft they don't touch your ears at all anyway, although if you wear grasses like i do it's gonna feel a little uncomfortable behind your ears for the first couple of days.
Long, thin, braided cable. Some people complain about the size of the cable but i think it gives you a lot of options and you can always tie the spare cable with the included ties that any electronic comes with.
Cons: The surround sound is beyond bad, there is no reason for its existence. That's why i gave it 4 stars
Overall Review: I would recommend this product
Pros: Completes my "everything RGB" pc setup
Looks very simple and the materials feel and look great.
The keys are super responsive and very quiet. Keys have a short travel distance
No light coming from under the keys (except for ESC)
Great quality volume wheel
The software is easy to use
Cons: It's a tall keyboard, a wrist pad would have been a great addition to the product
Overall Review: i would definitely recommend this product to anyone.
Pros: i bought this product for an RGB build and after watching some bad reviews i was concerned that i would have to sacrifice quality for looks. I was surprised to find that it is a decent quality water cooler with good quality tubing and really good looking RGB lights. i get good temperatures (max i've seen was 74) under full 100% workload on an OCed 7700k at 4.8ghz. What concerns me is the unstable temperature that keeps going up and down abruptly but i guess it could be my fan presets that change the rpms of the fans too abruptly (i'm still experimenting with the fans graphs).
Cons: !. Take the instructions and use them as toilet paper. 2. Proceed to install the product using common sense. I almost mounted the block wrong because of the instructions.
There are like 5 cables coming out from the pump and some of them are a little too short
Pros: - You can't go wrong with EVGA. This card never goes above 55 degrees C ever, no matter what you're throwing at it. Mine stays around 45-50 under 100% load because i connected the fan to the MB and i don't mind the noise of high rpms.
- Looks incredible, the rgb logos, the back plate, everything...
Besides the quality of the products EVGA customer service is the best i've ever seen. I bought a card that started having issues after multiple power outages and having no UPS protection at that time and they answered within 2-3 hours to my email and started the RMA process. They returned it in no time, working again. Don't use electronics of value without UPS.
Cons: You can't detach the entire fan cable from the card. You end up with a small cable hanging from the card if you wanna connect the fan directly to the MB.
Pros: cheaper than new and same quality, not a single scratch...
no dead pixels
i bought 3 and they still work as new.
Cons: I had 3 of them and all were giving me troubles, each alone and also crossfire. After a while of overheating (fans at full speed) and crashing and freezing my games they burned (with sparks and everything) while watching netflix.
They look cheap and take a lot of space compared to other brands.
The costumer service is a bad joke. The emails are answered by a guy who barely knows English and has absolutely no technical preparation.
In order to even play a game more than 10 minutes i had to use the fans at 100% and the sound is horrible
Overall Review: I discovered Nvidia and EVGA and i'm a happy person
Never freezes, never crashes, no sound, no heat, just quality.
Sapphire is garbage....and probably all ATIs i've learned my lesson.
Pros: I didn't expect it to be this good. The sound is absolutely amazing and the vibration option will change the way you experience sound effects in games (explosions will feel real)
Are comfortable even after extended use and they cancel a fair amount of noice.
The microphone is brilliant, has noise canceling but if you tweak just a little bit your recordings in Audicity this microphone sounds like an $100 microphone
Has a tiny remote where you can adjust the volume, mute the mic, mute the sound and has 3 adjustable levels of vibration.
Cons: The cable is absolute garbage and gets tangled . All electronics should come with braided sleeved cables, especially those you move around everyday like the head set and the mouse (my mouse has the sleeve and i'm very grateful for that)
Quiet, powerful, good looking :) , very small, good temperatures(the weather is tropical where i live), cheap.
I don't know how good is it in terms of overclocking because it was so good at stocks that i decided not to change anything, i thought the power gain doesn't worth stressing it (not that the card can't take it). I trashed 3x sapphire radeons. Never again, EVGA and nvidia is the way to go....
Pros: Completed my 3 monitors Eyefinity !!!!!
Cons: Even though i would have paid more just to get my 3 monitors up and running, i think it's a little much for a bloody 4 inch cable/adapter....
Pros: The keys feel like mechanical keys except the annoying noise. Also the keys don't kick back as much as on a mechanical keyboard. I find mechanical keyboards too responsive for my taste....
Nice red keys for w,a,s,d and arrows
The red led logo looks great
Cons: 1. Pretty uncomfortable, the keys are well arranged but the lower border it's too high and too round, i can't properly rest the lower end of my palm
2. if i accidentally push the keyboard forward the little hills on the back drop. The keyboard has a strong grip to the table but the hills have a very bad angle.
Pros: pretty comfortable shape, everything looks high quality, buttons are very responsive. The price is fair.
Pretty much everything in my pc is from Corsair, the quality, performance and looks along with the prices are unbeatable.
Cons: The snipe button is good idea in theory. When you actually use it the difference in sensitivity will mess up your aim. Maybe with a lot of practice it can make a difference.
Pros: 2 ,free, new games (happening to be my favorites)
Best game choices to include in a gift
Pros: Haven't tested it yet, i'm keeping for another rig i'm planning to build. I'll buy another one just like it and "bam" i'll have 16 gb dual channel :)
Cons: None, was free
Pros: Nothing bad about this mb, has everything you need for any comp you chose to make
Overall Review: rig
i5-3570k oc 4.6 GHz
Corsair h110 liquid cooling
Corsair Dominator platinum (2x8) 16 GB
Corsair cx600m ps
Sapphire 7950 3gb
Kingstone HiperX 3k 120GB SSD
Pros: No problems so far, everything seems to work fine
Pros: Very fast!!! works well!!!
Cons: Shows only 111 GB, maybe it's something i did ( or didn't do)
Pros: Works well!
Pros: Served my purpose. Got my video card temps down to where i wanted
Cons: Makes a lot of noise on full speed
I bought 2, one of them doesn't work full speed.
Pros: This thing keeps my i5-3570k working properly at 4.6 GHz oc
For better performance i think i'll buy better fans
Cons: None, good product!!!
Pros: Looks great, overclocked them at 1833 just for the hell of it, i don't think it's really necessary going higher
Pros: i overclocked it at 4.6 GHz and with h110 liquid cooling goes up to 90 degrees on each core - used 100% (Prime95 torture :) ) -
Cons: None, if it breaks it would probably be my fault
