Pros: - Powerful, Perfect for 1440p ulstawide and 4k gaming. - Cools extremely well. - Doesn't sag much, even with a heavy cooler. - Overclocks well, mine stays above 2000mhz at 45% fan speed
Cons: No big complaints, just a couple of couple of nitpicks. - Card can get pretty loud at 50% fan speed or above. - My card has a lot of fan motor noise at 20% and below.
Overall Review: Everything that ASUS produces always seems to be among the best, at least in my experience. Another great product.
Dont buy it
Pros: Didn't get a chance to find out
Cons: I installed it into my computer and after 5 to 10 seconds i heard sparks and saw smoke.
Overall Review: When I installed this, I put a secondary keyboard into it to test it for functionality. I turned my computer on and everything seemed fine for a bout 5 seconds. After booting up to the windows login screen, I started to hear sparking and saw a lot of spoke coming from the PCB. I instantly turned off the PC and removed the product to find out that one of the components on the PCB burned up and was destroyed. I proceeded to test my PCIe slot to make sure that it was still working and it was fine. the problem came when i went to test my keyboard. This product destroyed the keyboard that I had connected to it. It has completely lost functionality and LED operation. If you are reading this review and are planning on purchasing this product, please refrain connecting anything to it during the initial startup and configuration. I am just glad that it didn't cause any damage to my motherboard.
Pros: - Not too heavy and not too big of a foot print. - Great airflow. - Has to be the easiest case to build in. - Good cooling options. - Simple but looks great. - Ample drive space
Cons: Front IO is built into the front panel
Overall Review: I bought this case when it came out to replace my then favorite case the Rosewill Cullinan. This case is literally the case that I have always been looking for but didn't exist. The Define C was available but at the time it wasn't tempered glass and cooling wasn't great according to reviews. This case is a wonder and has almost every single thing I want in a case except for one thing. The only thing missing is a hinge and handle on the tempered glass side panel, which is just a personal preference.
Pros: - Looks awesome - Performs very well - Fans are top notch - Great thermals - Easy to install - Direct heat pipe contact - Brightens up you case - Not too loud
Cons: - Took about a month to receive - PRM gauge was defective when I received the cooler, but changing the fan y connecter fixed that problem - Gauge orientation is not able to change - Covers the 1st RAM slot and somewhat invades the second (but that is expected) - CPU temp gauge does not read CPU temp, seems like it is reading ambient temp inside the case.
Overall Review: This cooler is absolutely beautiful. Caught my eye instantly as I was scrolling, searching for coolers. At first I was skeptical of buying it because I hadn't heard of the brand before, there weren't any written or video reviews of it and Newegg seemed to be the only place this cooler was for sale. I decided to take a chance and ordered it. looking at it in pictures doesn't do it justice. In my opinion, this is the best looking cooler that I have seen in person and it also performs. It allows me to keep my 6700k overclocked to 4.5ghz at 1.32v and stays between 65c and 70c on the hottest core under CPUID stress test and cinebench runs (sometimes I would see a spike to 75c on core #2 during the tests but its rare, all other cores stay 67c and below), this is all with the fans at a max of 60% under load which is pretty quiet. Normal temps are always between 25c and 30c in which I have the fans running at 20%. The fans that come with this cooler are pretty good, I wish they also came separately. Overall, this cooler was an awesome buy but there are a few things to take note of. If you are not a patient person, do not order from over seas. I ordered mine on December 4th and didn't get it until the 29th. When I received mine the RPM gauge would only read 0 with PWM fans. Although corn was definitely willing to help me fix the problem I took it upon myself to troubleshoot and found that mine came with a broken fan y connector. Changed it and it is fine now. The front fan covers the 1st RAM slot and invades the 2nd. I had to tie down the bottom of the 2 fans because the rubber mounts do not work properly. Even with these particular problems though, I still would have given it 5 eggs for the rating. I had to give it 4 because I bought this mainly for aesthetics and the gauges can only be oriented properly if you use vertical airflow. I use front intake and rear exhaust so that is the way I orient my cooler. Because of this I have to deal with the gauges being arranged vertically instead of correctly. I wish this was interchangeable but it is not. otherwise it would definitely be 5 eggs. Still looks awesome though, and I would definitely recommend it. I wish I could post a pic of it in my system so people could get a better gauge of the size and look of it.
Pros: This thing is absolutely perfect for my Asus G751. Struggled for a long while to find a bag that would fit my laptop and finally have. holds my laptop and every peripheral that I want to carry with is.
Overall Review: The bag is expensive but is definitely better that any other back pack in the same price range. All of the materials this bag is made of are all premium. No shortcuts seem to have been taken with this thing.
Pros: This thing is definitely the fastest drive I have ever seen or used. Boot up is literally instant. I never even see the beginning of the windows loading circle from shutdown, boots straight to desktop.
Cons: Does not show any information about the drive in samsung magician. Not really a con, just an inconvenience.
