OC!1/30/2013 6:42:00 AM

Pros: Have this stable at 4.3ghz. This has performed at 4.3ghz for over a year now with no hiccups. Better than 22nm architecture to me as the i5-3570k doesnt have the same OC potential.

Cons: Zero

Overall Review: Perfect for an enthusiast, OC fiend or a gamer.

Good for price8/30/2012 10:02:37 AM

Pros: -Sound quality is good -Pairing is simple -Battery charges quick and lasts a long time -Headphones are comfortable -Foldable, comes with carry pouch

Cons: -We'll see about durability. They seem a little frail but i think as long as you dont throw them against a wall they should work.

Overall Review: To the reviewer prior. The PS3 bluetooth is voice only. It does not support audio and/or you need to change the settings on the PS3. This is not the headphones fault and more your own.

Good for cost till it stops working6/8/2012 6:45:43 AM

Pros: -Was a good price for length -Put out a great picture -Good quality

Cons: Bought this in August 2011. Has worked great until last night. It just stopped working all together. I tried a different cable in the same DVI slot to the same HDMI slot and it worked again. Dont know what happened.

Overall Review: All in all for cost to performance metrics i would recommend this product. I think i just got hit with bad luck.

Good memory but....6/7/2012 6:34:03 AM

Pros: -Fast -Heat Sink that looks good -Lifetime Warranty -Easy install -Works with a large assortment of motherboards. -No changes were needed in BIOS -Its Corsair....

Cons: -None really except a major problem. See other thoughts.

Overall Review: Bought these in September '11 from another retailer on sale. I have been very pleased for the most part with the design and performance. However, I was having issues installing some software last week and ran a memtest86 to see if the memory was at fault. Turns out that one of the sticks of memory is faulty. My PC recognizes all 16gb with it in but during memtest it pops more errors than i have ever seen before. There is a lifetime warranty and I will be filing an RMA this week. Corsair customer service is top notch and has been very helpful. The only bad thing is that i have to send 2 sticks back as i bought them in packs of 2 (2x4gb x2 packs). This is understandable however so that I receive the same lot code in return for best compatibility. To the previous reviewer: You do not need the original packaging to start an RMA. It does however need to be packaged in a way that will not cause further damage to the memory.

Great Design means a great product6/6/2012 2:19:05 PM

Pros: -BIG! -Cable Management is top notch -Removable fan filters -Removable top and front panel -Slide lock HDD/SSD trays with SSD screw holes. -Push button drive bay release and lock -Air flow -Room for everything you can throw at it and then some. -Feet on bottom of case allow it to be raised making more room for intake/exhaust. -Black steel frame. -Mounting holes for a top mount radiator up to 360 size (maybe only 240). -Holds my large PSU on the bottom with room for a 120mm fan beside it.

Cons: -For some the size might be a con as it is a full ATX Tower +. + meaning that it is wider than most full tower cases. -Only 2x 200mm fans included and 1x 140mm. -The light blue accents on the case are not my favorite but they are not very noticeable.

Overall Review: I am nothing short of extremely pleased with this case. The construction, design and features are top notch. There is also a lot of room for expansion in this case for people that like to tinker like myself. My PC: ASUS P8Z77-V PRO Intel I5 2500-K @4.6ghz Corsair Vengeance 16gb @1600mhz EVGA GTX 560 Ti SC x2 in SLI OC'd to 1000mhz core clock Ultra X3 1000W PSU Corsair Force Series 3 120gb SSD Seagate Barracuda 7200rm 1tb HDD. Cooling exhaust: 2x 120mm rear exhaust (CPU Liquid cool push/pull) 2x 200mm top exhaust 1x 140mm Front exhaust. (I rigged this into the drive bays) Cooling intake: 1x 200mm Front 1x 200mm Side 1x 120mm Bottom 1x80mm is rigged onto HDD/SSD bays to direct air from front 200mm into space between my GPU's Corsair H60 CPU Liquid cooler.

Pros: -Great tablet -Fast -Looks good -Can be rooted -Runs the ICS Android OS -Is still serviced with updates by ASUS.

Cons: -Not a single one to this day.

Overall Review: Was hesitant to buy refurbed as i have had issues in the past but not on this one at all. Everything has been fantastic right out of the gate. Have had it a few months now and love having it around.

Great Budget cooling6/6/2012 9:40:17 AM

Pros: -Great cooling performance for the money -Comes with mounting adapter for motherboard. -Corsair quality (plus warranty should it be needed) -All in one CPU cooling eliminates need for expensive components for the budget enthusiast. -Low profile -Looks good in system -Water Lines are small which reduces clutter or might be good for those with small cases.

Cons: -Once it dies it dies. There is no fixing it. For $60 you cant complain about it though. -Cooling is good but not great in comparison to some other albeit more expensive options -Not a huge fan of the stock thermal pad but it works.

Overall Review: -CPU Intel I5-2500K @4.6ghz turbo boost to 5.0ghz -Idle temp 23c -Load temp 32-38c -Temps monitored with HWID (CPUID), ASUS AI Suite 2 and Speedfan. Rest of PC: Asus P8Z77-V PRO mobo Corsair Vengeance 16gb @ 1600mhz EVGA GTX 560 Ti x2 in SLI Ultra X3 1000W PSU Windows 7 Professional 64bit

Cheap and Effective6/6/2012 6:55:29 AM

Pros: -Good Airflow -Cheap -Nice transparent black color -Good green color matches other green in my case

Cons: -depending on the direction of the air being moved the LED's may not appear to be doing much of anything. -The LED's are designed to create "line" effect on the blades. This works well on once side of blades only and not so much on the other side. Not a big deal. -LED's are not very bright. Green at least is not really bright. Again not a big deal.

Overall Review: I used these to replace some clear fans with green cathodes attached to them. I got sick of the over saturation that cathodes cause and the clear fans didnt match the mostly black component interior of my case. I figured that if im spending as much as i did on my PC everything better look uniform.

Great6/6/2012 6:41:29 AM

Pros: -Very Fast Read/Write -Easy Install with provided adapters if needed -Works great out of the box with minimal tweaking needed.

Cons: -As with all SSD's it has a limited lifetime of read/write capability.

Overall Review: My PC boots from the time the "starting windows" screen to the desktop is a whopping roughly 10-12 seconds with Windows 7 Pro. I cant ask for much more. Will be buying another so that i can dedicate 1 to the OS and core programs and another to games and other frequently used programs. My PC: Windows 7 Professional 64 bit ASUS P8Z77-V PRO Mobo Intel I5-2500k CPU (@4.6Ghz) Corsair Vengeance Memory 16gb at 1600mhz EVGA GTX 560 Ti x2 in SLI Ultra X3 1000W PSU Corsair Force Series 3 120gb SSD Seagate Barracuda 1tb 7200rpm HDD Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 Case A lot of Fans and such for cooling

Pleased with these cards3/22/2012 6:46:50 AM

Pros: -Good budget performance -Stock Overclock is easily OC'd even higher -I was able to get a stable 1100Mhz Core clock, didnt push much farther though. Temps were pushing high 80's. -Good heatsink -Good fan -No BIOS issues -So far nothing has come close to holding back my PC with these in SLI. -Packaging is very professional. -All adapters needed are included.

Cons: -Size. For my case they are smallish in size. The reason this is a con is because if they were a little larger than more heat would dissipate so that i could OC more and more. They are great for anyone with a mid-tower and factory oem case. -No free games -Mini HDMI port, comes with adapter however. -The shroud will most certainly let everyone know that it is EVGA, seems a little much to me. This is a nit picky con though. -These cards seem to have a tough time recognizing my TV as a display. If i boot the PC with the TV on and on the HDMI input for the PC it is fine. If i change the input and change back it loses the signal and reverts to a single monitor. Sometimes it will still recognize the TV but not show anything. I believe this may be a faulty cable, BIOS issue with the cards, or somewhere in all my tinkering with my PC i may have messed it up.

Overall Review: -I previously tried the Zotac GTX 560 Ti AMP edition for SLI. Stock clocks were 950 core, 2000 shader. These EVGA are stock 900/1800 in SLI. On heaven benchmark the EVGA received a 2493 with settings maxed. Zotac received a 2500. Here is the kicker, Zotac will overheat and shutdown regardless of airflow after 15 minutes. They were at 85 within 3 minutes. Fan maxed at the allowed 75%. EVGA maxed out at 73 degrees fan static placed at 70%. -The Zotac did not have much room for OC. Stable max was 1000/2100. Lasted for 10 minutes before overheat. EVGA stable max was 1100/2300. Temp max was 78. PC: MB: ASUS P8P67-PRO Mem: Corsair Vengeance 4x4GB 1600Mhz CPU: Intel I5-2500K OC to 4.6Ghz. GPU: EVGA GTX 560 ti SC in SLI PSU: Ultra X3 1000w SSD: Corsair Force 3 120Gb. Sata III HHD: Seagate Barracuda 1Tb 7200Rpm Sata III Case/Cooling: Thermaltake Chaser MK-1. 8 fans, CPU liquid cooled

In regards to a previous review i wrote3/2/2012 9:28:34 AM

Pros: -Fast. -Powerful -Free game -Mini HDMI to HDMI adapter included

Cons: -HOT! -Fan limits at 75%, which will not stop overheating problem In SLI I cant keep top card from overheating. This is due to a terrible fan. My case is large and airflow is clean and there is a lot of it in my case. Worked for a day or two. Will no longer work without overheating. With only 1 card in case the card still reaches 85+C While gaming. Not good at all. My old Gtx 480 only reached 70C under full load.

Overall Review: Spend the extra bucks and get an EVGA or ASUS card. You will have no headaches. My previous review (Titled Great Cards. Seriously.) was more excitement and the fact they worked proper for the first couple days. -Service department acknowledged overheat problems and are kind but there just isnt a fix available for this problem and probably never will be unless you purchase an after market VGA cooler.

Great MoBo2/27/2012 9:37:46 AM

Pros: -easy to setup -Lots of built in heatsinks -Bluetooth (actually kind of fun) -USB 3.0 -3x PCI-E slots -ASUS software is good -Easy to OC CPU with this board. -On board switches for clearing RTMC and CMOS -Power indicator LED. (saved my rear end the other day.) -Indicator LED's tell you what is wrong during boot. -BIOS both EZ mode and Advanced mode are good.

Cons: -Seems to enjoy a double/triple post every boot. Google search fixes have been unable to resolve. Fixed somehow on my own. -Has trouble booting from Sleep on Win 7. This is fixed by a couple small simple tweaks. -1x Screw did not perfectly align with holes in case. -Only 4x memory slots???????? (not bad, just cant think of much else.)

Overall Review: All in all i have been very satisfied with this Mobo. It has been pain free for me. The double/triple post can be annoying but screwing with BIOS settings, Regedit, clearing CMOS, RTMC and others can all fix this. I just step by step went through everything till it was fixed. I have been happy. The Bios is user friendly and can be used with a mouse. My PC: ASUS P8P67-Pro Intel I5-2500k 16Gb Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz Zotac Gtx 560 Ti AMP in SLI Corsair Force 3 120Gb SSD Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm 1TB HDD Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 Case A lot of Green lighting......

NZXT Alignment instead of Standard.2/27/2012 9:25:52 AM

Pros: -Moves air well -Good construction

Cons: -Alignment is for NZXT cases. Does not have extra alignment for standard 200mm cases mounts. -Made it so that i could not use it

Overall Review: As this is a good fan all in all i did not want to dock it many eggs. I just figured people should know that this will not fit standard 200mm fan mounts.
