Pros: Works nicely
Comes with everything you need
Cons: LED lights are extremely bright (especially blue light)
Pros: fast, reliable, plenty of space, uses sata iii (although i dont think hard drives can make use of it)
Pros: seems very high quality
keyboard looks completely normal and easy to read with the backlight off
mechanical keys feel good
not loud at all
lots of extra features
worth the money
Pros: moves lots of air
stays relatively quiet
wire resistors to make it quieter if need be
Cons: kinda ugly in my opinion, but i like performance of appearance anyways so I don't really care.
not too big,
seems very high quality
Overall Review: i've had this power supply for about 3 months now and I couldn't be happier. stays very quiet and the modular cables are very nice and keeps the inside of the case nice and clean.
Pros: VERY durable, i doubt i could dint it with a hammer, thats how thick the steel is on this thing.
Size, can fit anything on the market.
stays pretty quiet.
lots of dust filters.
wiring is very easy with this case.
Cons: due to the very thick steel, the case is very heavy, around 60 pounds.
the backplate cutout was not big enough for my motherboard.
the side window doesn't show off much but personally i prefer good performance over a flashy appearance.
Overall Review: the backplate cutout for the motherboard did not line up just right with the back of my cpu so when i replaced my cpu cooler i had to do some modifying to get to it. it took me over 10 min to cut out this opening with metal cutters, thats how strong the steel is. i could have just taken out the motherboard but im too lazy for that. it might work fine for some motherboards but not for mine which is a gigabyte z68x-ud4-b3.
other than that, i love this case! i just built a new 2500k system and out of this whole new system the case is my favorite part of my pc. (final price was around 2k) I dont ever see myself getting rid of this case. just replace the fans when they die and it will last forever!
Pros: great cooling, never reaches 70c even under heavy load.
stays pretty quiet, but can get loud when fan is cranked up above 60, but it also moves a ton of air when it gets loud so i kinda like it.
runs great at factory clocks and not overclocked at all
Cons: not a good overclocker at all, freezes computer when overclocked even by 10 mhz.
as others have said with this cooler, it makes a loud rattle noise that comes and goes, i have tried many times to figure out the source of the noise but no luck.
i also have a bit of coil whine, not loud enough to be bothersome but it's there.
price, i think there are better cards for the money
not really a con, but this card is very long, make sure you have room for it.
Pros: you dont need a good sound card for the headset to sound great,
seems to be pretty high quality
Cons: the drivers that run the headset can be buggy and annoying,
if you have a nice sound card you wont benefit from it with this headset,
makes lots of noise when you move your head
Pros: moves a lot of air!
stays pretty quiet at max speed
comes with wire resistors for noise control
Cons: kinda ugly, but i prefer performance over appearance anyway
Pros: Moves a decent amount of air
stays very quiet
Cons: fan doesn't move as much air as i had hoped
no way to turn off led lights
the screws i got with it were too big
Overall Review: i bought this fan to put in the optional top fan spot in my cooler master haf x. For some reason i received screws that were way too big for my case, the threads would just not fit. I don't know if this is new eggs fault or cooler masters but if i didn't have some extra smaller screws laying around then I would have had to drill out the hole in my case.
The amount of air flow is not bad, but if i put my hand over it, it pushes about the same as the cheap black fan I got with my case (maybe even less). I was expecting a little better performance due to the fans high reputation...
Pros: Keeps cpu very cool,
is not very loud, and comes with resistors for sound preference,
Very high quality
may interfere with ram if you have ram with tall heatsinks (but you can turn the heatsink if it does and that will solve the problem.)
Kinda ugly, but I personally prefer performance over appearance so it doesn't bother me
Overall Review: I use it on an Intel 2500k, overclocked to 4.2 ghz and it stays very cool, outside of burn tests I have never seen it get over 50 degrees celcius. It also comes with wire resistors that make the fans spin at a lower RPM for if you want to sacrifice a little bit of cooling for less noise.
Pros: large screen,
very low glare,
no ghosting or any other problems that i have seen,
does colors very well,
don't really know if this is a pro but this thing is very light, it weighs probably half what my 19" hp lcd does, it also puts out a lot less heat from the top vent.
Cons: not really a con, but it is very bright, nothing you can't fix by adjusting a few setting though.
the only real complaint is that the dark colors don't seem as dark as on my hp, it's probably just the different design but it's not a big deal. my hp was really bad for glare though, so it's a nice trade imo.
Overall Review: all in all, very highly recommended. great monitor at a great price.
Pros: fits into a low profile computer case.
one of, if not the, fastest low profile cards you can buy.
Cons: gets hot, up to 80 degrees in certain games.
fan gets very loud.
Overall Review: If your a gamer and stuck with a low profile case like i was, this is an amazing card. Just make sure you have enough power to run it. However if you don't need a low profile card, i would avoid this one and opt for one with better cooling.
