Great for what it is.
Pros: Runs every modern game Ive wanted it to.
Cons: I run on lower specs to keep it at a smooth frame rate. No backplate - its fine. It of course runs fine without and Ill probably make one until I upgrade to a 30 series GPU.
Overall Review: It is what it is. I built a new system with 32gb 3600mhz ram and an i9 11900K. This part is the bottleneck and just a placeholder until I can get a 30 series without going through a scalper. Ill most likely stick with MSI with that upgrade because Im overall pleased with this card.
Nice well designed motherboard
Pros: Looks great Very sturdy Simple bios
Cons: No USB gen3.2 connector
Overall Review: A nice low end board that fits a midrange ITX build very well. If having USB type C is important to you, you should probably get something else but otherwise itll do what you need. I wont mention overclocking. If you want to overclock this is not the chipset for you. Z690 is obviously the way to go for overclocking.
Beautiful tiny case. Temps seem decent at idle (havent put under load yet, though) Built in cable management
Pros: Small compact design Still somehow fits a 240mm radiator
Cons: Tight fit (duh)
Overall Review: It is a little hard to work in the case but I think that comes with the territory when youre using an ITX case. Once you get it built, its a beautiful case. Cable managing, like its larger h510 counterpart, cable management is a breeze with the built in channels. When people see NZXT, I think they tend to worry about airflow. I dont have any issues in my h510 elite and Im not seeing any issues here. I think the airflow is likely better in this case, though. The small form factor fits well in small spaces if you have limited desk space yet still fits a decently large graphics card (no more than 2 slots, of course).
Beautiful and reliable.
Pros: Reliable Nice white cables
Cons: Id have liked a straight SATA power cable rather than 90° but thats alright.
Overall Review: A PSU is a PSU for the most part. However, Corsair is one of the most reliable names in power supplies. I bought this for a primarily white build for my wife and I was pleasantly surprised that it also included white cables. I thought Id have to get custom cables made. The build is still in progress (waiting on LGA 1700 bracket) but the white cables look great in the build for what little you can see of them.
This CPU is too fast!
Pros: Great performance, low cost Stock cooler actually looks nice
Cons: You might need to make sure you have the right bracket for your cooler, though the stock cooler will be fine with this CPU.
Overall Review: Im a little upset. I have an i9 11900K and I got this for my wife for a midrange build and its BARELY SLOWER THAN MY TOP OF THE LINE CPU. The performance difference between 11th and 12th gen is actually pretty ridiculous. Its almost a complete waste of money at this point to buy anything other than 12th gen. If youre thinking about getting this and worried it wont be strong enough for whatever games youre playing, dont worry. It packs a decent punch and will play any modern title when paired with a decent graphics card.
Really cool - a little uncomfortable
Pros: - Nice product and very intuitive to use. The tutorial is actually really nice to familiarize you with the GUI, especially if this is your first venture into VR. - the price. Its a little more than Id like to have paid even still but compared to others on the market this is a steal. - All-in-one or powered by my 3070 ti it runs great. Versatility is definitely a plus.
Cons: - pretty uncomfortable. Im going to be looking into accessories to remedy that. They have some work to do on that front, getting it comfortable out of the box.
Overall Review: Overall a great product. My only complaint is that its not very comfortable so I only drop 1 egg but for something I want to wear for a couple hours at a time, it should be more comfortable.
Shipping seems sketchy
I got my product in a pretty timely manner, I believe before I was told it would arrive. The only issue I had was that for the first week or so I had no tracking information even though I had a number. A few days and a few more emails later I had a new tracking number (apparently the original package had been damaged) and with that new tracking number everything went as expected and the product arrived when tracking said it would. All in all, the seller was responsive and got me my product in a reasonable time. 4/5 eggs because I had to wait a week longer than any even though it was in stock and shipped out of the US like every other item I had ordered on the same day and I feel as though it were my constant emails that prodded along the customer service. My recommendation with this seller is that if something seems amiss, email him and hell do his best to make everything right.
