Simple and clean
Pros: - No bloaty software required, all functions and settings can be adjusted from the keyboard - Decent amount of macro and led customisation, especially given no software is used - Bright and even LED lighting - The fantastic Cherry MX Red switches - Detachable cable that can be routed either out the side or top of the keyboard - Includes a keycap puller
Cons: - A volume roll bar would have been nice - The OS key is the CoolerMaster logo.
Overall Review: If you're after a white-LED mechanical keyboard, get this.
Pros: - Neutral design that will fit many build colour schemes - Solid - Fantastic performance, 2GHz+ is easily obtainable - Low temperatures, aside from the VRM issue described below. - Relatively quiet in normal operation - EVGA customer support and warranty
Cons: - The widely publicised VRM overheating issues: EVGA handled this well, offering bios updates and free thermal pad kits to owners. - The RGB lighting on the side of the card does not illuminate all the text evenly.
Overall Review: Given all new cards now ship with the bios update that alleviates the VRM issue, I have no problem recommending this card.
