Pros: Ran cool and quiet while it worked
Cons: Failed in less than two years. Dont even use it every day.
Overall Review: Took a week and a half for a replacement card to show up (with cosmetic damage on it) and am out $40 to ship the now garbage failed card back to evga. Waste of time and money. The air cooled version probably works fine but am definitely skipping evga for my next gpu update.
Pros: Pretty cool design, even when off.
Lights are nice and vibrant, functionality depends on your mobo software (asus doesnt allow too much)
Overall Review: This is probably my favorite rgb accessory in my case. I could spend $100 on 140mm rgb fans with a ridiculous amount of cabling to use, or I could get this, which I think looks better than most case fans.
Pros: I was replacing a old-new thermaltake case and this one is above and beyond the rest. There is insane attention to detail by adding padding to certain parts and using quality metal plating on the outside. The tempered glass panel covers the whole side and looks amazing. Plenty of room above the motherboard for push pull fans on my cpu cooler. The rear exhaust fan is recessed to sit further back than the motherboard, making sure not to block the I/O cover on the motherboard which are looking good now days. The power supply cover makes sure everything looks nice and streamline. The lighting on the outside is awesome, really adds to the looks. Also plenty of room for cable management.
Cons: Front dust filter requires pulling off the whole front panel to remove but there really isnt a better way to do it.
Pros: The chair is top quality in every category. Wide shoulder space, durable rocking mechanism that also prevents snapping up. Adjustable armrests that are rubberized for softness. Metal base, solid wheels. Stitching is very nice with the fabric nice and tight. This is the only chair ive owned but I dont think it gets much better.
Cons: Some person at noble chairs thought it would be a good idea to put a metal logo on the chair back. The logo in the picture is metal. It may seem insignificant but I noticed it instantly the first time I sat down. If you lean back you can feel it dig in to your back. I ended up gently pulling it out and the back feels much better except now there are two small holes where the pin was. This logo served no purpose other than to dig in to my back. They had a six star chair here then decided to slap a metal logo right where your back is supposed to rest. It took me all of 10 seconds to feel it when I sat down and Im not sure how noble chairs didnt realize this. Because this flaw is so blatantly obvious I have to knock it down considerably. I shouldnt have 2 small holes in my $300+ chair.
Pros: Slim bezels
nice picture quality
Cons: Although stable the stand is quite large
Overall Review: I have 3 of these monitors and all work perfectly. Its definitely the best value for the price as far as 4k monitors. The bezels are pretty thin and flat against the screen, something I look for. The monitors also have a vesa mount which a lot of monitors are dropping now.
Pros: CPU never gets above 55C without overclock.
Remains consistently quiet.
Cons: WARNING - the screws that hold the fans on the radiator are too long. My friend has the same cooler and the same problem. There are tabs protecting the radiator from being punctured by a screw, but this should not be a problem. I remedied it by cutting the screws, but not everyone has the tool to do that.
Overall Review: Kind of an oversight by corsair but the usb link cable attaches to the bottom of the pump. My particular mother board has a light up logo that would get blocked by the cable. Keep this in mind if you are nit picky about looks. I currently dont have the cable plugged in and hence cant change the led color.
Pros: Worked well while it lasted
Cons: After transfering my components to a new case I used a cable that I didnt need in my old case. Immediately upon startup that cable caught fire and melted, singing some other wires next to it. Luckily it was a sata cable and not a motherboard cable and was only powering a lighting accessory and not a hard drive.
I have contacted corsair for a warranty and after 2 weeks of not having a computer they approve my warranty claim but the power supply is sold out. So I will most likely be without a computer for 4+ weeks.
I also have to pay return shipping which is just adding insult to injury. I shouldnt have to deal with a power supply failure, I shouldnt be down a $3000 computer and after this power supply nearly burned down my computer corsair is just punishing my for buying their product.
Overall Review: Power supplies have two jobs, power your pc, and not catch fire. Its not complicated. After the warranty expires Im buying evga next. They also have 10 year warranties and none of my friends have had problems with them.
