Most Favorable Review

On my P67 Sabertooth

Mushkin Enhanced Redline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 996981
Mushkin Enhanced Redline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 996981

Pros: Sexy anodized heatsinks that fit nicely below my Noctua NH D14 cooler. Recognized 8G right away and no DOA. 8G for $150.00 = STEAL! Easily set to correct timings in BIOS. Windows experience is 7.8 at stock speeds.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I think I will try to tighten the timings up a bit. Shooting for 7-7-7-21. I think it's possible. *fingers crossed* I think I bought the first package. I was all set to buy the G Skills but then these suddenly showed up. My buddy has the same type in his X-58 Sabertooth. triple channel of course... and he has his overclocked from 1600 to near 1800 with tight timings.

Pros: Cheap Comes with nero

Cons: Noisy This is the noisiest piece of hardware I have ever owned!! It clicks and clacks when I start up... It clunks and bangs as it is searching the discs. I bought this for my new build but decided to keep my old LG and hand this one down to my kids in the old computer.

Overall Review: Meh...

So so headsets

Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 with 7.1 Surround Sound, Wireless Headphones with Microphone
Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 with 7.1 Surround Sound, Wireless Headphones with Microphone

Pros: Awesome sound. Blocks out a lot of external noise (like my nagging wife and loud GTX970 fans). Wireless. Good battery life (probably 6 to 8 hours. Equalizer is nice. - Good for large heads - comfy after 8 hours straight gaming.

Cons: - Major issues with the sound cutting out and in. Every time this happens my sidetone gets reset down to nothing which I really hate more than the sound cutting out (and the boinging and beeping noises that drill into my brain as the adapter resets itself) -Both broke where they attach to the earpiece after about 1 to 2 years of gentle use- I am an adult and treat my equipment with respect. The second pair just broke on me and I was being extra careful because of my experience with the first pair.

Overall Review: I recently bought a competitors brand but couldn't handle the head pinching tightness nor the ambient sounds that I could hear quite easily compared to these. If Logitech could fix the constant cutting out and the flimsy earpiece attachments this would be my #1 choice no questions asked.

Still frustrated but content

Cooler Master HAF X - High Air Flow Full Tower Computer Case with Windowed Side Panel and USB 3.0 Ports
Cooler Master HAF X - High Air Flow Full Tower Computer Case with Windowed Side Panel and USB 3.0 Ports

Pros: My wife thinks it's ugly! This is actually good since she won't want to use it!!!:) Ginormous! Good cable routing.

Cons: USB 3.0 extensions need to be changed to actually fit a motherboard internal port, not the external usb 3.0 ports. Got 2 in a row that were opened previously and had motherboard standoffs installed already in a few spots. TO me, this is an "open box" not "new". I

Frustrated

Pros: Great airflow and HUGE!

Cons: RMA'd 1st one since it was actually opened and there were 2 motherboard standoffs installed already. That's a fail...It cost 2 eggs for definately a 5 egg product!!

Overall Review: Make sure you get a "new" case, not an open box.

Love it still.
