Free games, hard to complain
Overall Review: Just wanted to put this out there, because of the negative reviews. The games are not even out yet, so I'm not really sure why people are complaining? Sniper Elite is out and can currently be claimed and AMD's redemption site clearly states that the other games will get keys once they launch.
They looked great, when they worked
Pros: -They're beautiful and offer a lot of customization when they work.
Cons: -Seems like there's some QA issues -Not a cheap setup
Overall Review: I've had these since February, and they're nearly useless at this point. Initially, they were great. I loved how you could layer different effect together to really add your own flair. I went all in with these, a commander pro and an additional fan. My issues started when iCue just stopped working, I couldn't change anything and the lights on my fans didn't power on. It took a full Windows reinstall to get iCue to finally work again, but now fans freak out and sporadically flicker constantly when I have a multi color effect like color wave active. White is like the only one that's not terrible, but even when set to white part of the fan's LEDs are stuck on different colors. The front top fan I have has fans stuck on red, others are stuck on blue and green. When I set the fans to red, part of the top front fan is stuck on purple while my other fans flickering between red, purple and blue. I wish I could love these fans, but they've been disappointing. I tried to contact Corsair to RMA these fans, but I haven't heard back. At this point, I'm probably just going to switch to NZXT.
Very Solid Card
Pros: Good value on the current market, pretty power, runs quiet and cool
Cons: Pretty big card
Overall Review: After doing a lot of research and comparing prices; this is straight up one the best GPUs to get. The closest Nvidia card in terms of price is slower in the majority of games. On to the card itself; it's a 1440P beast. From Halo to Gears to Cyberpunk; it'll run it all with ease. You could even push it up to 4K in some games if you don't want the high refresh rates. The biggest con I can think of is the sheer size of the thing; the cooler is even bigger than the one on my 6800XT. This went into my itx build and even though I checked the card's dimensions and the specs of my case, I did have to remove some fans and angle it just right to properly get it in my case. But, those are the kinds of things you have to deal with when using ITX. Just, be sure to make sure this beast will fit in your case!
A Fantastic Ultrawide, with HDR
Pros: Great colors, HDR, 75hz with Freesync, Freesync over HDMI support.
Cons: The stand has limited positions, but it is vesa mountable. Not the monitor's fault, but HDR on Windows needs some work.
Overall Review: This is a great monitor. It's technically out of spec compared to official HDR spec, but it still looks great. I played both PC and PS4 on it in HDR and it looks nice. Outside if gaming with HDR on, Windows does have some issues. Not the monitor's fault at all,but worth noting.
