Is this thing on?1/10/2017 6:32:29 AM

Pros: - Quiet as a mouse! - Under full load during benchmarking never got above 51C. - Skyrim with HD mods, Fallout 4 HD, Civ 6, etc, are left with whiplash at the speed this card renders them. - Great way to add a little water cooling to your rig without any risk.

Cons: - Hoses are a bit stiff (might not be a con for some) - Can't detach hoses to mount radiator on outside of case - Kind of short hoses which limits radiator placement - Kind of pricy

Overall Review: Overall an awesome card that's nearly silent and the water cool keeps this baby nice and cold but requires some planning for proper case management if you already have a rear exhaust fan. *Upgraded from two GTX 550 Ti in SLI

Great case11/19/2014 7:58:27 AM

Pros: Great roomy case with nice slots in the back plate to route cables out of the way. Comes with 3 120mm fans which are enough to keep everything inside cool. Best front loading drive bays I've ever seen, if you want to move a drive you just take the cover off and reattach it to the old slot. USB slot on top is a godsend. Comes with a tray for your SD card reader.

Cons: Wasn't free :P

Silence is priceless!5/1/2014 8:05:58 AM

Pros: Silent, moves tons of air, silent, PWM-able, and also SILENT! I have two of these in my case feeding a push-pull system into my monstrous Hyper EVO 212 and I can not hear a thing. The only thing I hear from my case now is the GPU's fan. Time to look at liquid cooling for that :)

Cons: None. Great fan. Go buy a couple now!

Great Pad5/1/2014 7:59:49 AM

Pros: This mouse pad is amazing. My mouse glides across it like it was on air, I actually had to turn the DPI down a tad because I was so used to using just my desk. Tracking is superb with my Roccat Kone [+] mouse. Takes up just the right amount of room and is nice and thin so my hand isn't lifted up as much as cheap pads would.

Cons: Its pretty large if you have a small desk. A good size estimate is taking two blank papers and putting them side by side (they are 8.5" x 11" each and this pad is 14.2" x 11.8")

Overall Review: I see some people complained that the edges have frayed a bit but I haven't seen anything. Another issue they bring up is that dirt and grime get stuck to it easily. Again I haven't seen anything like this and I own a cat that sheds hair everywhere.

Is this thing on?5/18/2012 10:18:31 AM

Pros: This thing can solve global warming! Keeps my i5-2500k cool and stable overclocked at 4.2GHz and never ramps up the fan speed! Because of that it is virtually silent! It fits almost all of the current sockets so there is little reason not to get this.

Cons: Its HUGE. Its a couple of mm away from my side door so I'm always nervous about it touching and frying my system.

Overall Review: Be sure your case can fit this beast, even when everyone says its HUGE you don't really understand it until you put it in your case! Attaching a 2nd fan on the other side of the fins will let you overclock much further and all on air! HAF 912 case Hyper 212 EVO i5-2600k @4.2GHz 16GB G.Skill DDR3 1600 RAM GTX 560 Ti 2GB

Great Board!5/18/2012 10:12:19 AM

Pros: Lots of room for upgrades, spaced far apart enough for good airflow. Lots of SATA and USB ports to hook up to. Stable and the overclocking/proc unclocking software is easy to use.

Cons: None

Nice and free!5/18/2012 9:56:28 AM

Pros: Freebie with my G.Skill Ram order. The adapter is a nice addition so that I can use this card in a variety of devices.

Cons: none

Rock Solid5/18/2012 9:40:41 AM

Pros: Comes in a sweet tackle box-like case where you can store all the extra cables. Enough 12v rails to run whatever you want to put in your case and delivers reliable power flow to everything. This thing is so silent that I don't even know when my PC is on in the dead of night! Modular design lets me keep my case tidy and airflow efficient.

Cons: None whatsoever!

Amazing Card!5/18/2012 9:37:26 AM

Pros: Everything I've thrown at this card it has just shrugged off as a minor annoyance. Far Cry? Left crying. Skyrim (maxed out and HD mods galore)? Attending therapy. World of Tanks? Smoking husk left on the battlefield. BF3? Witness Protection MW3? Roadside ditch. This card, even without overclocking, is able to display smooth framerates and crisp graphics without ever going over 75'C. Overclocking is simple and safe MSI Afterburner

Cons: Can run a bit loud if you have a quiet case (loudest of all my fans) but that's to be expected from tiny fans and that's only when the card is under heavy load.

Looks sick!5/18/2012 8:36:28 AM

Pros: Great RAM sticks, look amazing in my case. Fast response time and nice heatsinks to keep things cool. Cheaper to buy than two 2x4GB packs.

Cons: Not sure if this is a con but it could be

Works like a charm!5/18/2012 8:33:34 AM

Pros: Runs whatever I throw at it and laughs in my face. Hard to max out all the CPU cores without benchmark tools. There's not much out in the wild that can break this beast and it's unlocked so you can overclock it easily. Got it running stable @4.2GHz on air alone, don't see much need to pump it higher.

Cons: not free :(

Awesome Case!5/18/2012 8:30:31 AM

Pros: Lots of room for airflow and video cards. Easy to snap side panels/front panels on/off, no tools needed if you use thumb screws for the back. Slick finish, keeps the PC quiet. It CAN fit a Hyper 212 EVO but with a couple of mm to spare. Make sure it doesn't touch the side of the case while its on or it can fry your entire system. Maybe use a thin rubber gasket ring where the case meets the heatsink of the EVO

Cons: none

Silent and Powerful5/18/2012 8:23:58 AM

Pros: This thing pushes a TON of air while still rotating at the minimum speed and is virtually silent! I have this as an intake and 1 small 120mm exhaust in a HAF 912 case, internal temps under load are 20% cooler than when I turned this off to test its effectiveness.

Cons: A bit bright if you leave your machine running at night but you could always just sever the power to the 3 LEDs. So not really a con.

Great Mouse2/2/2012 11:54:02 AM

Pros: Customization to the 10th power. Awesome weight system, extendable and swappable palm rests. Greatest invention is the thumb wheel!!! (Awesome when binded to scrolling through tabs in IE or Chrome) 2nd Greatest invention is the pinkie rest! Why don't all mice have these two things?!?!

Cons: The Phillips Twin Eye Laser is a piece of junk. This isn't Mad Catz fault entirely, but they should have gone with a different optic system! First mouse's optic failed after about 5 weeks. Plugged it back in 2 days later and it worked for a few minutes before dying again. RMA'd it and had to pay shipping costs to CA (~$10 since they want the entire package, not just the mouse). Took about 20 days from shipping to get it back.

Overall Review: The first rep was horrible, didn't send me the RMA email and basically said that the optic was just dirty and I didn't know how to clean it properly (I've worked in IT for 11+ years so I think I know what I'm talking about). The 2nd rep, Josh Harford, went above and beyond for me. He stayed on the phone with me after he sent the RMA instructions email to make sure I got it, responded to my email questions in the following days, and even got me the tracking number for the return shipment (they do not provide this to you automatically, he had to go and find it). If you have to call their tech support be sure to ask for Josh! Bottom line: Do not buy this mouse or any of the R.A.T. series mice until either a)They get a different, reliable, optics/laser tracker, or b)Phillips fixes their junk. When it works its magic! When it breaks, other mice feel strange and you find yourself reaching for the thumb wheel :( Its like crack!

Good power supply11/16/2011 7:14:21 AM

Pros: Cheap and easy to install. Has enough plugs for a low-end to mid-range system. Price is great for a 450W (per Watt)

Cons: Can't say for sure if there are any. It works so I guess none.

Great headset10/31/2011 6:07:02 AM

Pros: Plug, play, listen. That simple! Great audio.

Cons: Not bluetooth so range and area of influence is rather small. Not really a con since this product isn't meant to be listened unless in front of the TV (About a 90 degree arc of coverage).

Overall Review: Solid build, comfortable, and took 3 seconds to unpack, plug in, and listen.

Pros: Great Price. No Noise. Supports my dual 23" monitors with no problem.

Cons: No SLI unlike it's fan-cooled 9500 GT brothers.

Overall Review: Not a beast but at this price you can't beat it's performance per dollar.
