Most Critical Review

comfortable while they last but cheap parts dont last

Turtle Beach Ear Force PX24 Universal Amplified Gaming Headset for PlayStation 4, Xbox One (compatible w/ new Xbox One controller), PC/Mac, & Mobile devices
Turtle Beach Ear Force PX24 Universal Amplified Gaming Headset for PlayStation 4, Xbox One (compatible w/ new Xbox One controller), PC/Mac, & Mobile devices

Pros: the headset was comfortable. and the inline sound " DAC" was simple to use

Cons: the headset is built with very cheap plastic. your head band will crack and break after 1 year of use. ive went through 2 of these headsets and they have the same issue around the same time. the in line sound DAC needed to be charged to work. and the charge port on the DAC is very fragile and held in with a small amount of glue that will come un done and fall inside the dac over time.

Overall Review: i can not recommend this headset to anyone that would game on a regular basis due to its cheap construction and low life span

The absolute best 1080ti available. But still flawed

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 HYBRID GAMING, 11G-P4-6598-KR, 11GB GDDR5X, HYBRID & LED, iCX Technology - 9 Thermal Sensors
EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 HYBRID GAMING, 11G-P4-6598-KR, 11GB GDDR5X, HYBRID & LED, iCX Technology - 9 Thermal Sensors

Pros: -EVGA warranty/customer support -water cooled -amazing thermals even after my OC it won't pass 50c and will drop back down to 28c as soon as I idle - ICX thermal sensors -included 120mm radiator fan is actually a good fan. However I swapped to an ML 120 for aesthetic reasons -EVGA over builds there cards with the ICX tech and cools everything - my card boosted to 1988 in stock configuration but it's super easy to OC past 2GHz -nice packaging -dope case badge -free ghost recon -free superposition benchmark -EVGA uses a real fan to cool the VRMs and not a poor performance and loud turbine blower like the MSI card -nice a quiet - no cool whine - quiet pump. Much quieter than my H110i CPU coolers pump

Cons: -the fan header for the radiator fan is only a 3 pin so if you want to use a PWM fan then you will have to use a MOBO header and do some more cable management -the card has NO RGB the "EVGA HYBRID" logo is a static white. Yet the air cooled SC2 card has RGB. -the "SC2" on the card dose not light up. I asked on the forum assuming it was a dead LED but no it just simply can't be illuminated - AND THE DUMBEST THING!. this card is ICX it has amazing internal thermal sensors that I love but guess what. The LEDs that let you look at the card at a glance to get a guess of what your temps are on the air cooled SC2 ARE NOT ON THIS CARD. EVGA literally took away one of the best parts of there special ICX tech from this card. It's such a dumb decision to do this. I have to keep XOC running 24/7 to look at my temps now. It really did pointing for me so I'm taking an egg away - to be honest when installing the card the plastic shroud felt like it had some give to it and it's just something I did not like even tho it will more than likely stay there for the rest of that cards life unles I upgrade it.

Overall Review: -Pascal dosent really OC past 2100mhz with the restrictions NVIDIA has set. So with the amazing thermals of this card you don't need the 8+8 PCIE connection 8+6 is fine for a really good and stable OC since this card will not throttle at all. -FedEx really messed up my order. They canceled my delivery 3 times and then on the 4th time tried sending it all the way back to California when the package was in Michigan. I literally ended up having new egg support and FedEx support in a conference call to get them to finally deliver my package. Long story short new egg support is awsome. - system specs I7-6700k at 4.7ghz water cooled on H110i Asus z170 mobo 2x8 16gig kit of ripjaws V at 3200 Cs650m PSU EVGA GTX 1080ti SC2 HYBRID - this card is the absolute best you can buy. With my set up i haven't seen any game on my 3440x1440 Acer X34 with ultra settings drop below 80FPS. - I bet the FTW version of this card will have RGB and the outward temperature LEDs and to be honest that kinda bothers me that they robed the SC2 HYBRID version of these features( yet the air cooled SC2 has them) for an 810$ card. When the FTW HYBRID comes out I'll have to see if there's a step up program. All and all I love the card but I can't give something a perfect score if it's not perfect I have to take an egg away for the lack of the thermal LEDs and 1 more for all the other cons that could have been fixed on an 810$ card.
