Pros: First thing before you install the driver from Rosewill let windows update install some generic 7.1 headset drivers, then install the Rosewill drivers. It made a big difference on my laptop letting windows 10 install drivers if they aren't the right ones.
Cons: not sure how the other baboons have had so many issues 0_o
Pros: some tweaking and over clocking I get a benchmark score very high on AC Origins 2560*1440 of 8247, I7 6850k 4.2 ghz. Msi X99a Godlike motherboard. Not going to buy a new 6 core with less than 40 pcie lanes...
Cons: they cheaped out on the backplate and didn't add the led msi gaming symbol like on the Quick Silver 1070.
Overall Review: custom fan curve under 60c while gaming, NZXT H440 Razer edition case.
Pros: great build quality and accurate while just on desktop and while gaming. This is my second Naga Hex mouse, dropped my old one and broke the left click button.
Overall Review: first one lasted me over 4 years until I dropped it.
Cons: broken, fried 2 sticks of 16 db ddr4, only came with motherboard in a box nothing else and msi doesn't warn customers about it.
Pros: no issues setting everything up, also got emulators working fine with a thumb drive for storage. If you have a good Internet bandwidth with a gigabyte wifi router you should not have any issues streaming and gaming.
Overall Review: not sure why others have had issues, could it be that it's to simple to research something before you buy it?
Pros: Insane performance when you put 2 of these in SLI, I know it's luck with the silicon lottery but with custom fan profiles with Nvidia control panel staying around 145f. It stays cool while gaming and boosts up to 1958 on the core I have not tried to over clock yet so far no need. Led colors work great if you try to get close to matching your PC case's default led lights, I have An NZXT Razer H440 sync up pretty well even though the darkest green you can get is still a bit shy but doesn't take away from the overall looks.
Cons: Not really a con but the board on these are extremely tall if your case has a guard or extra's above the expansion slots you might want to make sure you won't have any issues.
Overall Review: This is what I was hoping MSI would do after the 100 ME GTX 970 and GTX 960s.
Pros: For real world usage this is a great secondary hard drive; I have Steam, Upla, Origin and Battle.net app installed to hold all of my games. I have noticed a big difference in loading times with all the newer games, I have installed Mass Effect Andromeda, Ghost Recon Wildlands, Far Cry Primal and Witcher 3 with dlc's
Cons: review sites should use real games instead of just benchmark tools that seem rather pointless to get real world performance.
Overall Review: I will get more of these later on they are on par loading speed with hard drives that cost over 3X as much with 10k rpm's
Pros: It looks great and if you use the right fans and components can have a great looking build. I have a Msi Z97s Krate edition motherboard with a Msi Gtx 970 100 ME edition card, looks great, especially if you don't use case fans that are not over bright led's or modify the fans with cheap sunglass lenses. Furthermore, this case will support a Raijintek Tisis Core Edition if you use 120mm fans, I'm using 2 Cougar CF-V12HPB Vortex fans that work well for heatsinks and radiators.
Overall Review: Wish people would read what fits for coolers in the case, instead of complaining showing how asinine they are with doing that. I don't see how people order anything without researching the product?
Pros: This Motherbaord is significantly faster than my ASUS z97 Pro Gamer motherboard. Same components this motherboard gets about 20-30 fps better on The Division and Fallout 4.
Overall Review: Wish that Msi would have made a black and green color scheme, running this with two Msi Gtx 970 100 Me cards.
Pros: Great performing motherboard, I've had no usb or stability issue, I'm not sure how other's people have had so many issues; well besides people who think, they know what they are doing. Running a I7 6850k on air cooling with a Raijintek Tisis core edition and two Cougar CF-V12HPB Vortex 120mm fans using Ic diamond, and I can run 4200mhz per core and stay under 50c while gaming.
Overall Review: I like the OC series case badge.
Pros: Awesome performance with 2 COUGAR CF-V12HPB 120mm fans & Icdiamond. I have a I7 6850K. I stay around 45c while gaming, I have a temperature profile for my CPU fans, and they only go to 100% at 50c. Easy mounting with black coating gives it a sleek look in any case with a window.
Overall Review: While mounting the fans I had the top fin pop off the corners, easy fix I just used a small diamiter pair of needle nose pliars to bend the fin back in place then used a soldering gun to melt the peaces together.
Pros: Running 2 of these sets for quad channel, using the xmp profile to run at 3400 mhz. Great performance got a 1206 cinabench score with a I7 6850k processor without over clocking or using a xmp profile. I did try it with 2400 mhz xmp and it dropped to 1187 CPU score.
Pros: It runs cooler than expected with air cooling, stays under 50c while gaming. Icdiamond while using a Raijintek Tisis and 2 COUGAR CF-V12HPB 120mm fans. I am liking the turbo boost 3.0. It boosts itself to 4193 mhz according to cupid and hardware monitor. Quad channel memory is a huge performance boost loading games besides the core count and hyper threading.
Overall Review: Hope that programs and games on windows will be able to use the fully use the processor within the near future, well besides Linux.
Pros: 4690k i've hit 4.87 ghz but the sweet performance spot is 4.62 ghz, with a raijintek with a cougar 120mm fan haven't broken 62 c with prime 95
Pros: 4.62 ghz with a msi gaming 7 motherboard hasn't broken 62 c with a raijintek ereboss core edition heat sink with a cougar 120 mm fan on it.
Pros: I have this on a 4690k at 4.72 ghz. with a couger 120mm led fan even with prime 95 a 12 hour run the cpu hasn't broken 63 c. But I am also using ic diamon 7 thermal paste
Cons: it will use a regular 120mm fan I have a cougar greed led fan.
Overall Review: it does come with fan mounts for 1 fan, you will have to order a second fan to get the extra mounts, hint the 120 mm raijintek fans comes with them...
Pros: I got this mouse to replace my lan party mouse, more responsive and awesome quality
Overall Review: got it to replace the older mouse that the buttons where wearing out,
Pros: I've had these before they got broken when i moved, and now here is a new one, have not came across any other headphones with this many features and quality for less than 200, just cause you spend alot of money on over rated namebrands, try these
Overall Review: would laugh at the tools who pay twice as much for headsets that don't compare feature wise or quality wise,
Pros: using it on a evga 780i ftw motherboard with a qx9650 @ 3.68ghz and 2 msi gtx 660 tf oc video cards, gained 5-10 more fps on almost every new dx 11 title, taking the load off the integrated auido chipset and gives extra cpu performance,
Cons: Funny how people who think they know computers and etc can't see how to gain performance by a good margin with simple upgrades, instead of saying new comp new cpu, new video and etc,
Overall Review: still have not found a game i can't run, well over 80 fps 2560x1440
Pros: Got these to go in my coolermaster, NVIDIA mid tower, the length is perfect for the 3 hard drives are at for my old msi 780i motherboard, matches the cases ligh mods
Cons: None, I know how to work on comps, so I don't screw up parts and claim defect
Pros: Works great, don't slide around the desk,
Cons: None, would only get dirty if you have junk on your desk
Overall Review: Would be great if it had a lip around the edge to keep the cloth from wearing off the rubber matt after a few months of usage
Pros: nothing now
Cons: After a few months of having this psu, it shorted out and fried a intel q9770, 780i motherboard 8 gigs of ocz ddr2 sli cert memory, 2 msi gtx 275's, and 2 1 tb hd's, and they refused to replace the other componets that where not under warrenty to be replaced, don't use on something that isn't under warrenty,
Pros: worked for a few months
Overall Review: they use to have good componets, now they just mess with ati junk so back to real companies,
Pros: The kinda off angle of the cooler works great in my in-win ironclad and other than that, I got my i7 2600k up to 4.93 stable and around 39c load, without the ac on,
Overall Review: people should do some research into the heatsink to make sure it will fit the average size mid tower case, this isn't a complaint department for you not doing research, other than that nothing else,
Pros: great fan easy hook up you would have to be a forrest gump to screw these up lol
