Pros: so cheap. back in november was when i bought this it was $130 at the time i believe. was still worth it. runs oblivion pretty smoothly at around medium settings, even ran age of conan at low to low-medium pretty nicely (i was surprised it ran aoc that well) *small *quiet
Cons: none that ive discovered.
Overall Review: ive since upgraded to a gtx 260. ill probably give this to a friend along with all my old parts bc his computer barely runs WoW lol (also runs wow at max settings but thats pretty obvious, that game has low vga reqs)
cheapest 4k monitor?
Pros: well it's 4k. looks really good
Cons: First unit i bought had a dead pixel in the middle left, and one in the middle right of the screen, and some really uneven IPS glow creeping out of one corner. so I RMA'd it no problem, Replacement unit has only one dead pixel, in the dead center of the screen. A 4K at this price point I could accept maybe one dead pixel way off to one corner, but not dead center. I understand it may be fallacy to expect perfection from such a cheap piece but it's still a lot of money.
Overall Review: Other reviews said it was flimsy, I can't say I agree + I'm using a dual mount so I can't comment on the quality of the stand. +Used an Acer for 9 years and loved it before this, I'm kinda turned off now ++Other Other thought, I have premier and originally ordered with 3 day shipping however the replacement was sent standard(4-7) so I ended up having to wait an extra weekend; would have gladly paid extra for a expedite if given the option. just a heads up I guess
Pros: Power. Would try again for 5 dollars.
Cons: Loud. Didn't last as long as I hoped.
Overall Review: After about 18 months the bearings started to emit a really obnoxious rattle, running at reduced power and forcing me to unplug it. Unfortunately I have this as the pull on my 212 EVO. Fortunately I only need a single 120.
Pros: runs relatively cool under pressure. best looking cooler ive ever seen.
Cons: the fan blows upwards, into my psu's intake fan which i guess isnt so bad but it should blow out the back instead. not a huge con.
Overall Review: the blue LEDs inside arent very noticeable. my psu right above it- and my fans behind it are a much brighter blue so they pretty much overpower the light coming from inside it. you MUST get a clear case to appreciate this beast. also its about the size of a softball or a baby's head. roughly 7 inches tall (from the mobo to the wall of my case-pretty large case) so make sure you have about 7-8 inches between the cpu and the wall before you buy it. of coruse you could always cut out the wall and have it stick out some which would actually look pretty sick.
