Pros: -OK Surround sound -CLEAR BASS AND HIGHS (it has it's own subwoofer) -Vibration when subwoofer activates? This headset is just great. I don't know how some have problems with it. Defective unit?
Cons: -If you're playing 2CH stuff...you MUST set the system input to 2CH in the audio controller software. Otherwise, the subwoofer won't work and doesn't sound right. -The sound plane isn't THAT spatial. It has surround...but not as good as an actual 5.1 set-up
Overall Review: At first, I used the software from their website, and I was a bit disappointed and thought the surround sound doesn't work. Then, I tried the software that came with the box and it was better than what was in the website (which is most likely the latest software, but it seems like the older one is better)
It's almost 2 years since I purchased this...
Pros: -IT LASTS...I already gave it to a friend of mine, and he likes the sound which leads to... -DECENT sound quality...though you might want to change the equalizer settings to tweak it to your preference. I use the "Powerful" preset and tweak the lows/mids up a little up more
Cons: none that I could think of...you get the sound quality that you pay for...and playing MW3 with it (which is what my friend is doing right now when I'm writing this), the sound quality is pretty good.
Overall Review: Soon, I'm getting Turtle Beach DX12...and I know it's an unfair comparison, but I still will. I will post again if my Turtle Beach breaks and this thing still survives in my friend's hands. I had an Ozone Strato EVO headset, which I just got this year in February, and the front right speaker is already broken...it's a 5.1 surround headset that costed ~75$ btw...it didn't even do better than these in terms of sound quality...it just had a vibration when there's bass and that's it...other than that, the surround quality of that headset sucked so bad...no matter how much I tweaked it
Still running solid even after a year
Pros: Darn, this thing ran my overclock on my athlon x2 245 @ 3.6Ghz for a year without a problem. Well, that dual core didnt last too long since now games are being more optimized for a quad. Few days ago, got my phenom ii 955 and worked right out of the box (with the exception of me OC'ing it to 3.6Ghz on accident 0.0 left the BIOS untouched from last year) and now overclocked to 3.5Ghz without putting more voltage*****
Cons: Not much of a con, but why does it set the highest possible voltage right away? And why it adds an additional .02 volts to the number? It started my phenom 955 at 1.4 volts, and my athlon 245 at 1.425. Is this normal? I mean, i like to OC it a bit, but why start out at a higher voltage?
Overall Review: Overall, its 5 eggs since it's pretty darn solid. When my 4870 died, it provided me a good enough back up to do some web browsing, and even play some older games. Sims 3 even works with the integrated graphics.
Good case for a budget build
Pros: -6 fan capability -bottom mount psu (i prefer bottom mount) -claims to be capable of fitting a high end card (i only have a GTX 460 hawk talon)
Cons: One less egg since the hard drive cage can be nice, but what if you want a front fan?...The cage blocks the air flow. But hey, they tried to fit everything in using a mid tower case
Overall Review: The hard drive activity light isnt so visible. An alternative is to switch the blue light's wires into the HDD activity pins. The light might be hidden from top view, but its brighter.
It's good but a bit misleading...
Pros: +Pretty Quiet +Runs cool, 26C on idle, 68C on furmark while OC'ed 910/2203 (+40, +20, +10 voltages) compared to my 4870 which ran 44C on idle, 80C on load 780/1000 (stock voltage). Room temperature is 24C +Can be overvolted +100 volts +Can reach 852/2053 on stock volts.
Cons: -reviews/benchmarkers show 1000Mhz OC with up to +200mv overvoltage, product only shows +100. -not much of a problem but a piece of plastic was on the heatsink, making this noise which caused me to remove that plastic.
Overall Review: I was really hoping to try to get 1Ghz overclock, but sadly they put a +100 limit instead of the previous +200. And let me ask, what does AUX voltage really do?
Good, gets the job done
Pros: *semi-modular(necessary cables like 24+4 pin is not modular) *550 watts *i don't know what else, it just gets the job done for me, and it does it good
Cons: Well...I don't know if graphics card broke or its the power supply, but my graphics card stopped working. It's probably the card. Not really a con, but what is the red port for?
Overall Review: I used the red port for my graphics card as an additional 6 pin connector (4870) and I never knew what it really did. Is it the same or not? Please answer in your thought
