This thing is AWSOME8/7/2011 2:08:15 AM

Pros: You can check the temps at a glance. It lets you visually watch your memory work in action. This has really made my build look awsome. It's campatable with Corsair Link when it comes available.

Cons: Takes some dexterity to install. Wish some room was allowed for cable management. Most of the upcoming LGA 2011 motherboards will have the ram on more than one side of the CPU, making this difficult to use in future upgrades when the time comes.

Overall Review: I installed mine after modifying my Dominator GT's with extended heatsinks. Wish there were a gage to tell either the voltage and speed the ram is opperating under. It would also be helpful to have readout for the XMP settings and if they are being used. 2600k runing at 5.0ghz stable EVGA P67 FTWin motherboard Corsair Obsidian 800D Full Tower Case Corsair H100 Water Cooling running 4 120 mm fans push/pull Corsair AX1200 1200 Watt Power Supply 80plus gold Corsair SP 2500 220 Watt Speakers 2.1 Corsair HS1A Gaming Headset Corsair Dominator GT(CMT8GX3M4A1866C9) 8 gig ram running at 1866 (4 x2) Corsair Dominator extended fins Corsair Airflow PRO Parametric Memory Display 2 Corsair Force 3 GT 120 gig ssd 2 EVGA GTX 570 super clocked in SLI 2 Velociraptor SATA III 600gig HD Soundblaster X-fi Titanium HD soundcard Samsung 2770 27 inch monitor 1ms response time HD 1080p 1920x1080 Windows 7 Ultimate Sony BWU-500S Blu-ray burner

WOW!!!!! 2600k 5ghz8/7/2011 1:47:51 AM

Pros: My 2600k went from 4.6 on air to 5.0. Running Prime95 for 30 minutes the highest temp is 79C at 1.45vots. This thing can take the Heat!!!! I backed down from a 5.2 overclock because the temps hit around 84c running Prime95 for 30 min and the fans sounded like a hairdryer. Just for fun I got to 5.4 but it hit 90c after running prime for about 10 minutes. That is the fastest I have ever gotten. I love this thing!

Cons: I added two additional fans, I wish I could buy matching fans and screws for a push pull. i wish there was some cable management accessories for the fan cables especially for those who will be running 4 fands in a push pull.

Overall Review: This is compatable with the upcoming LGA 2011 socket. I would like to give this another try when corsair link comes out! It greatly improved my 3DMark 11 score. 2600k runing at 5.0ghz stable EVGA P67 FTWin motherboard Corsair Obsidian 800D Full Tower Case Corsair H100 Water Cooling running 4 120 mm fans push/pull Corsair AX1200 1200 Watt Power Supply 80plus gold Corsair SP 2500 220 Watt Speakers 2.1 Corsair HS1A Gaming Headset Corsair Dominator GT(CMT8GX3M4A1866C9) 8 gig ram running at 1866 (4 x2) Corsair Dominator extended fins Corsair Airflow PRO Parametric Memory Display 2 Corsair Force 3 GT 120 gig ssd 2 EVGA GTX 570 super clocked in SLI 2 Velociraptor SATA III 600gig HD Soundblaster X-fi Titanium HD soundcard Samsung 2770 27 inch monitor 1ms response time HD 1080p 1920x1080 Windows 7 Ultimate Sony BWU-500S Blu-ray burner

Best SSD out there8/7/2011 1:23:58 AM

Pros: These have taken my system to new heights. I bought two and while there have been several issues, I am glad I did. This is cutting edge so expect a few hic-ups. But it is also Corsair. They have bent over backwords to help make this work. Nobody has customer service like they do.

Cons: I can't get them to work in a hotswap bay for my 800d, even with the new SATA III backplate.

Overall Review: These are the best SSD's out there. If you like to push to the limit this is for you. The new firmware 1.3 update resolved most of the issues with this drive. Ignore bad reviews prior to August which didn't have the new firmware update because most of these issues have been fixed. 2600k runing at 5.0ghz stable EVGA P67 FTWin motherboard Corsair Obsidian 800D Full Tower Case Corsair H100 Water Cooling running 4 120 mm fans push/pull Corsair AX1200 1200 Watt Power Supply 80plus gold Corsair SP 2500 220 Watt Speakers 2.1 Corsair HS1A Gaming Headset Corsair Dominator GT(CMT8GX3M4A1866C9) 8 gig ram running at 1866 (4 x2) Corsair Dominator extended fins Corsair Airflow PRO Parametric Memory Display 2 Corsair Force 3 GT 120 gig ssd 2 EVGA GTX 570 super clocked in SLI 2 Velociraptor SATA III 600gig HD Soundblaster X-fi Titanium HD soundcard Samsung 2770 27 inch monitor 1ms response time HD 1080p 1920x1080 Windows 7 Ultimate Sony BWU-500S Blu-ray burner

Sometimes you just gotta go loud!8/7/2011 1:10:39 AM

Pros: The best speakers I have ever owned! FREAKING LOUD! No matter the volume, these things can get there with crisp perfect sound. I like all kinds of music and I can hear things I didn't even know were there. Classical to Rock these can play it all. Movies and Games are taken to a new level. I was able to hear details I wasn't even aware of. You will be shocked.

Cons: My kids won't stop listening to them! Speaker cables not long enough. Makes the windows rattle and the floor shake. You won't make any friends with your neighbors.

Overall Review: I know these are expensive, but they are worth every penny. If you are on the fence because of the price, save up for them. Don't buy anything else, these are that good! 2600k runing at 5.0ghz stable EVGA P67 FTWin motherboard Corsair Obsidian 800D Full Tower Case Corsair H100 Water Cooling running 4 120 mm fans push/pull Corsair AX1200 1200 Watt Power Supply 80plus gold Corsair SP 2500 220 Watt Speakers 2.1 Corsair HS1A Gaming Headset Corsair Dominator GT(CMT8GX3M4A1866C9) 8 gig ram running at 1866 (4 x2) Corsair Dominator extended fins Corsair Airflow PRO Parametric Memory Display 2 Corsair Force 3 GT 120 gig ssd 2 EVGA GTX 570 super clocked in SLI 2 Velociraptor SATA III 600gig HD Soundblaster X-fi Titanium HD soundcard Samsung 2770 27 inch monitor 1ms response time HD 1080p 1920x1080 Windows 7 Ultimate Sony BWU-500S Blu-ray burner

Unlimited Light Dimming Power!!!8/7/2011 12:55:03 AM

Pros: Wow, this is by far the best power supply I have ever owned. 2600K running 5ghz, 2 gtx superclocked graphic cards and this thing is ready for more. The cables are all black with nice sleaving. Fully modular. 7year waranty.

Cons: I have litterally blown a circuit breaker 3 times! Have to make sure the computer is turned off before I run a vacuum cleaner. Not the Powersupply's fault, I live in an old house. But this thing is way over the top!

Overall Review: If you want the best, this is it. It can handle anything you throw at it. I read a review where this was running an SR2 with quad SLI! Powerful enuough two run two computers. 2600k runing at 5.0ghz stable EVGA P67 FTWin motherboard Corsair Obsidian 800D Full Tower Case Corsair H100 Water Cooling running 4 120 mm fans push/pull Corsair AX1200 1200 Watt Power Supply 80plus gold Corsair SP 2500 220 Watt Speakers 2.1 Corsair HS1A Gaming Headset Corsair Dominator GT(CMT8GX3M4A1866C9) 8 gig ram running at 1866 (4 x2) Corsair Dominator extended fins Corsair Airflow PRO Parametric Memory Display 2 Corsair Force 3 GT 120 gig ssd 2 EVGA GTX 570 super clocked in SLI 2 Velociraptor SATA III 600gig HD Soundblaster X-fi Titanium HD soundcard Samsung 2770 27 inch monitor 1ms response time HD 1080p 1920x1080 Windows 7 Ultimate Sony BWU-500S Blu-ray burner

Best Headset ever!8/7/2011 12:43:30 AM

Pros: These things are comfortable! Can wear them for hours with out even noticing. Great construction, light but solid. Definately built to last. Adjustable. Can even put them around my neck to listen. I like to ROCK and game these let you hear every guitar strum and gun click. Can change the ear pads. Long cord.

Cons: Wish it had a case to store them in. But hey these things are awsome.

Overall Review: I havent used the mike yet. On Board audio does not do these things justice. I recomend getting a sound card if you want to get the most out of them. If you want the best, why go half way? 2600k runing at 5.0ghz stable EVGA P67 FTWin motherboard Corsair Obsidian 800D Full Tower Case Corsair H100 Water Cooling running 4 120 mm fans push/pull Corsair AX1200 1200 Watt Power Supply 80plus gold Corsair SP 2500 220 Watt Speakers 2.1 Corsair HS1A Gaming Headset Corsair Dominator GT(CMT8GX3M4A1866C9) 8 gig ram running at 1866 (4 x2) Corsair Dominator extended fins Corsair Airflow PRO Parametric Memory Display 2 Corsair Force 3 GT 120 gig ssd 2 EVGA GTX 570 super clocked in SLI 2 Velociraptor SATA III 600gig HD Soundblaster X-fi Titanium HD soundcard Samsung 2770 27 inch monitor 1ms response time HD 1080p 1920x1080 Windows 7 Ultimate Sony BWU-500S Blu-ray burner

4.8 ghz on 2600k8/7/2011 12:35:36 AM

Pros: Kept my 2600k running 4.8 ghz with temps around 78c.

Cons: Manual left a lot to be desired, didn't explain that the washers go on the back of the motherboard.

Overall Review: Ran mine in a bottom up configuration in my Corsair 800d case. I don't think it could go right to left without hitting my RAM.

WOW!8/7/2011 12:30:10 AM

Pros: This is by far the best case ever!!!! Mine came with USB 3.0 and the SATA III backplate. I was able to air cool my 2600K at 4.8 gig. I later went to a water cool and got 5.0.

Cons: UPS likes to drop kick these things. The box was severely damaged and some parts were broken. Corsair replaced them no charge, their customer service is the best.

Awsome8/7/2011 12:20:48 AM

Pros: This ram can take the heat! Aeroscore perfect 7.9. Upgradable. I added extended heatsink which come in Black or Red. Also added the Airflow Pro. Works great to watch the temps on display. Quad Chanel so it can be used on the new LGA 2011 motherboards when they come out.

Cons: If you could call a con, requires 1.65 volts to get it there. Also has tall heatsinks so it would be tough to fit under a large air cooler.

Overall Review: What sold me on this was that it is Quad Chanel so it will work on the upcoming LGA 2011 motherboards 2600k runing at 5.0ghz stable EVGA P67 FTWin motherboard Corsair Obsidian 800D Full Tower Case Corsair H100 Water Cooling running 4 120 mm fans push/pull Corsair AX1200 1200 Watt Power Supply 80plus gold Corsair SP 2500 220 Watt Speakers 2.1 Corsair HS1A Gaming Headset Corsair Dominator GT(CMT8GX3M4A1866C9) 8 gig ram running at 1866 (4 x2) Corsair Dominator extended fins Corsair Airflow PRO Parametric Memory Display 2 Corsair Force 3 GT 120 gig ssd 2 EVGA GTX 570 super clocked in SLI 2 Velociraptor SATA III 600gig HD Soundblaster X-fi Titanium HD soundcard Samsung 2770 27 inch monitor 1ms response time HD 1080p 1920x1080 Windows 7 Ultimate Sony BWU-500S Blu-ray burner
