Cons: Received the gift when purchasing a RX 580. Come to find out you are required to have the GPU installed before you can even claim the games. Email into support and they'll just continue to reply back with a canned "clearly mentioned in the terms of service found here" response, though nowhere on the page is the terms mentioned and that the card itself needs to be installed.
Overall Review: Been a longtime AMD fanatic, but this is a new low for them.
Pros: Own several so far and use them for gaming, video rendering, and everything else. If you've been looking for a decent capacity SSD drive, look no further. Exceptional drives, and more importantly reliable. Haven't had any issues yet (knocks on wood).
Overall Review: Be aware you only receive the SSD drive, no further accessories (this is normal, most don't). So if you don't have an SSD mounting bracket available in your case, I'd recommend buying one.. they are cheap.
Pros: Have not actually used the product just yet, however the material seems to be of high quality. The hoses are a bit stiff, and worked best when mounted on top.
Cons: Did not include a proper Y connector to connect fans to the power block. Ordered two of these, one for the new system and one for my old system and both had incorrect Y connectors.
Overall Review: Disappointed thus far. Building a new system for a friend, and everything went smoothly up until this point. First I thought I misplaced the proper cord so I opened the second H100i that I bought and it had the same issue.
Will update on performance with both systems, once I can actually get them properly hooked up.
Pros: I debated on purchasing this headset for over 2 weeks. Was skeptical on the actual sound quality, due to it having wireless. Normally for one feature, you give up another. With this headset, that does not apply.
*AMAZING Sound Quality. I've had people over and of course they want to check them out. Every time, people are amazed.
*WIRELESS. No cord is like a gamers dream, or anyones in that case. Seriously. I always had problems with cords getting insanely twisted, drive me to purchase a new one. Not anymore.
*BATTERY LIFE. I listen to music LOUD, even when playing games. They last anywhere from 8 to 12 hours depending on how high you have them. Cord doesn't get in the way when charging and using either.
*QUALITY. Can't be the quality. They are a bit heavy, but honestly when wearing you won't even notice. Plenty of comfort.
You get the best of all worlds with this. No joke.
Overall Review: Honestly, if your in the cross roads on should I splurge and get this, just get it and don't worry about the cost. You get what you pay for. This is serioiusly a treat to anyone. The sound is awesome, high quality bass (yes it thumps but sweet sounds.
Pros: Purchased 2 of these boards for 2 new systems. Lots of features, high-quality parts from the looks of it.
Cons: 1 worked perfectly.
1 came doa.
Overall Review: Not sure if it's a hit and miss with this certain motherboard. From the other reviews, seems it's a 50/50 chance on getting a board that has some issue.
Sent in an RMA, will have replacement (same board) in 3 days. Will check back on the 3rd board.
Pros: Can't go wrong. It's an excellent cpu, and gets the job done. You cannot beat the price, when compared to Intel for a quad-core.
Overall Review: Honestly, go ahead and buy it. Won't regret it.
Pros: It's quiet.
Cons: Very old
Overall Review: This cooler is extremely old, and outdated in design and concept compared to the competition. I purchased an Artic Cooler Freezer 7 back 5 or 6 years ago - same one - and it's still being sold without much revision or change to the design.
This was a good cooler back in the day, however when you look and use the newer coolers, they do an excellent job. They are better optimized, designed, and so forth.
Pros: The sound quality of the headset is good. Music sounds great, and to counter what others have said about bass - it does have smooth bass. They can also go VERY loud. The surround is also nice, and gives a good sense of 7.1, even when gaming.
Cons: I've owned 2 of these. Details for each below.
#1. It lasted about 8-9 months, until the ear piece simply broke off the hinge. Mild usage with good care. Made static noise that was caused by the sound controller or cord connecting to the sound nob. Taping the cord to it fixed the static. Cord TANGLED and TWISTED extremely bad, after 2 to 3 weeks. Not possible to straighten out and becomes EXTREMELY annoying.
#2. I've had it for over 6 months, and hasn't yet broke yet with mild usage as before. The static issue is back, and same area with the sound controller on the cord. Cord twists real bad like before as well.
Overall Review: Good overall headset, but I think the issues outweight the benefits. Out of 2 headsets, both are facing the same exact issues and they really do make it not usable. The twisting of the cord happens just after a few weeks of owning, then the static within 3 months or so. Your welcome to take your chances, but I fear you'll have the same issues mentioned above.
Pros: Looks awesome, and definitely can already see the quality of the product. Unfortunately it's extremely wide and not high enough (low profile).
Cons: Wasn't able to use it. It doesn't fit with all 4 memory slots full, plus it barely goes over the heatsinks on the mobo.
Overall Review: Be careful when ordering. It's an amazing product (overall quality), however extremely large and I don't think it would fit on most motherboards, especially if using all 4 ram slots.
Pros: Cord length, volume control, tons of speakers, and futuristic design with a nice led logo. I've also had complements on how clear the mic is from others.
Cons: I'm not sure about others, but I've owned cheaper headsets that had higher quality of sound ($30 - 60 range). For having 8 speakers and dropping $100 down, I was expecting to be blown away, but I feel more disappointed. I can't get any bass out of these, the speakers just bog out and crackle or the bass ends up with static.
Overall Review: I have it hooked up to a Creative 7.1 XtremeGamer soundcard with fresh drivers, and the speakers crackle when turning up the volume after a certain point (not even loud). Also these seem to almost have zero bass.
I've also been trying to get a hold of their support which seems non-existent. Their live chat shows online but no one answers you. I'd only assume a RMA would take forever if I can't even reach them.
Pros: Purchased on 2/5/2009, and was a great headset overall. Good quality in sound and decent bass. Today, 8/12/2009, just pulled them off my head and broke at one of the hinges connecting to the ear piece.
Cons: Weak design connecting to the ear pieces. I knew it might cause issues, as it seems the spot were most all eventually break at.
Overall Review: Good overall, would recommend. Just be gentle - will last awhile.
Pros: Just had one of these delivered for a new build. The overall case design is excellent, and the venting is very nice. Its sturdy, and anyone that likes black steel cases, will like this one.
Cons: Only came with 8 screws for the handles. No further screws were provided. You'll need some for your drives, and motherboard, and any other addons you get.
Overall Review: I put a micro ATX Mobo in this case, and it seemed if it were a full ATX mobo, you might have some room issues. That is my opinion however. Overall excellent buy, and would recommend.
Pros: The RAM works great, and looks even more amazing. You may need to update timing in bios, or check when installing - however no biggy.
Overall Review: Would recommend.
Pros: Works great, with no issues.
Pros: Works as it should, without any problems.
Overall Review: Recommended.
Pros: I've purchased quite a few of these, and the blue LED 80mm fans, and they work awesome. They push a decent amount of air for their size, and over the past 2 years of having them installed, only one fan has lost 1 LED. They still work good as new other than that.
Overall Review: Great purchase, would recommend.
Pros: Great layout and overall PSU. Has everything and more, with excellent power output.
Cons: Lasted about 1 week and died.
Pros: Awesome fan controller. Threw this in my new custom rig and works like a charm without any issues. LED's all work and are definitly bright :)
Overall Review: Thermaltake Armor Case (full) w/ 25CM Fan + extra neon lights, Intel 3.4 (OC @ 4ghz), Foxconn SLI Mobo, 3GB DDR2 533 Kingston, Evga Geforce 768mb ddr3 Superclocked, 250GB HD, Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer.
Pros: Works great, excellent lighting, cheap price. No problems what so ever.. ordered 2 and both work like a charm.
Pros: Case is huge, however is definitly a good thing. Plenty of room for moving around, installing extra fans, cooling system..etc. Excellent quality, and is almost entirely metal for the exception of the top flap for the usb ports..etc.
Highly recommended for gamers, and if your going with 8800's, you will need the room.
Overall Review: Threw in some extra 80mm neon green fans, Intel 3.4 (OC @ 4ghz), Foxconn SLI Mobo, 3GB DDR2 533 Kingston, Evga Geforce 768mb ddr3 Superclocked, 250GB HD, Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer.
Pros: Works great and ran into no issues after installing it. Very quiet and decent speeds.
Pros: Works great without any flaws. Installed in new custom built pc and ran into no issues. Highly recommended.
Pros: Built a custom gaming rig and threw this processor in it. Works excellent and can be overclocked to 4ghz+ with proper cooling. I choose Artic Cpu Cooling.
