Why Corsair has lost me as a customer.6/15/2016 8:25:54 AM

Pros: -Great airflow -Many features for a small case

Cons: -You can't breath too hard or the window will scratch -Poor customer service

Overall Review: Other than the very easily scratched window panel, for the most part, I like the case. However, Corsairs customer support has disappointed me so much that I may change cases and will no longer use their products. I have had only three hardware issues, a Corsair PSU, Corsair RAM, and my third problem stemmed from this case's poor window. I am OCD and I also post my online build alot (which has been featured) so I like it to stay looking as good as possible. Once the window became more scratched than I could handled. I ordered a new one directly from Corsair. It arrived in worse shape than my previous one with multiple scratches and obvious buff marks. It took me 8 phone calls and an email to finally get the RMA taken care of with Corsair not contacting me back even once or shipping out the replacement when they said they would. When I expressed my disappointment to the customer service rep, she rudely ignored it to get off the phone. I have used multiple Corsair cases, PSUs, RAM, and keyboards. But I will start bringing my business elsewhere.

Great price for performance6/7/2016 8:19:09 AM

Pros: - 6 cores, 12 threads - Decent price - Great at multitasking - Overclocks higher and easier than Broadwell-e CPUs

Cons: - 28 PCIe lanes

Overall Review: I've had this CPU for 5 months in an ASUS X99-M WS with 980 Ti SLI. I use my build for photo editing and gaming on a 3440x1440 monitor and I plan on getting into some 3D rendering and animation in the near future. I have mine lightly OC'd to 4.1GHz and I have absolutely zero lag with anything I do. Whether I am web browsing with multiples tabs and a game in the background or editing 24MP images, it does it with easy. So far, it has out preformed my brothers 6700K (OC'd to 4.6) in every benchmark we have tried (except single core of course). I originally planned on switching to Broadwell-e once it released, but after reading reviews, looking at benchmarks, and reviewing its overclocking capabilities, I will be sticking with Haswell-e for sure! I highly recommend this CPU to anyone looking to do an X99 build that doesn't need 40 PCIe lanes.

Great, simple RAM6/7/2016 7:53:07 AM

Pros: -Low profile -Keeps things simple

Cons: none

Overall Review: Got this to replace some Corsair RAM that was defective. I haven't had any problems with it and I do not overclock my RAM. Its low profile so it doesn't interfere with my CPU cooler and I love that it doesn't have the big, pointless heatsinks. It keeps things simple and clean.

Best mATX x99 mobo6/7/2016 7:26:31 AM

Pros: - Made with top tier components - Workstation / Server quality - SLI compatible - Xeon and ECC RAM compatible - On board WIFI and Bluetooth - Actual heatsinks for the VRM and PCH, not big junks of metal - 8 SATA 3 ports

Cons: - Only 4 RAM slots - M.2 is only x 2 (10GB/S) - Location of Q code display when running SLI

Overall Review: I've had this board for 5 months now and I cannot be more pleased. The quality is outstanding and unbeatable. The reliability of this board is reassuring knowing that it is a workstation / server. The heatsinks on this board are amazing! My VRM has never got over 50°C and my PCH 40°C! The biggest downfall of this board would be the the M.2 slot being x 2. That puts it not much faster than a 2.5" SSD. But if you can look past that, and do not plan on running SLI x3 or x4, this is the mobo to get. Just as good quality as the x99-e ws with minimal sacrifice. Running a 5820k slightly OC'd to 4.1 and 980 Ti SLI. PC has never crashed, never had a problem, complete reliability.

Great design and great cooling!10/23/2015 8:53:53 PM

Pros: First build and extremely happy with this case! Cable management is a breeze! Added a 80mm fan to the back for exhaust and used the top fan as an intake. Running a H105 on the front, my temps stay pretty low under load (Mobo: 40C, CPU: 45C).

Cons: Wish the case was about an inch wider just for more space for larger GPUs.

Stay away10/23/2015 8:46:04 PM

Pros: None.

Cons: Used for my first build. Was not pleased! You get what you pay for. Its cheap for a reason. Wasn't giving me steady power and causing my mobo to over heat. Ended getting a Corsair CX750M. Just spend the cash to get a nice PSU.

Great for the price!10/23/2015 8:43:34 PM

Pros: Great for gaming at 1080p and can manage 2k. Definitely couldn't hold 30fps at 4k. Ended up swapping for a GTX 980 Ti. But no complaints on the 970. Just wanted to game at 4k.

Cons: None

No problems at all.10/23/2015 8:34:21 PM

Pros: I hate to see at the bad reviews. I have had no problems with this mobo. First build and everything went perfect. XMP does not work for me, however, my RAM (Ripjaws V series) is not listed on Asus' qualified vendor list on their site. I am able to overclock it manually though, but I returned it to 2133 as I don't care to OC the RAM. Just wanted to test it. OC my i5 6600k to 4.4 GHz stabled. Very pleased with the on board M.2 socket. I can definitely see room for improvements, but nothing updates can't fix.

Cons: Stay away from the 5 Way Optimization in AI suit 3. Overclocked me to 4.7 GHz running over 1.5v! Completely unstable, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone

Works perfect10/23/2015 8:13:05 PM

Pros: Keeps my overclocked i5 6600k cool. Running 4.4 GHz and temps never get over 50 Celsius while under load. Color matching ring is really great.

Cons: CPU idles from 28-31C, my brothers H100i keeps his i7 at about 22C at idle.
