Pros: Pretty comfortable
Sound quality was good (at first)
Compatible with multiple platforms
Cons: Had to have the amplifier replaced once
Sound seems to be degrading, sound output is hollow and distant
Both sides of the headset cracked just above the earpieces and I had to repair with super glue and electrical tape
Overall Review: I purchased this headset because it was compatible with Xbox One and PC. However, the overall quality/durability is very poor. I have only owned this headset for a year now and it has broken multiple times and the sound quality seems to be degrading.
Pros: When I purchased last year this board had the best features available for bing a Micro ATX. Runs Windows 10 great and I have had no problems since I purchased. Build a new gaming PC, with Samsung SSD, EVGA GTX 980, EVGA PSU, Corsair LPX 8GB quad, and this system has been up and running since it was built. Additionally, it runs everything super fast. (knock on wood).
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: I have not used the m2 slot so I can not give any information on the functionality. However, I use my computer often for gaming, movies, school, work, etc. EVGA has always been a reliable brand for me.
Pros: Well it is called Halo 5, it has Spartans and Master Chief, even though I did not get far enough to see him. The graphics are decent.
Cons: I hate to say it but rent this before buying. My preorder digital copy was activated last night, I did not even make it through the first level before I stopped playing. Very static movement, preset button mappings suck, movement and game play feels slow, it just feels nothing like Halo! Everything feels stiff no fluidity in physics...
Overall Review: All animation is stiff including cut scene CGI.
Pros: This card has performed very well. The design is clean and good quality. All my games run on ultra settings with no issues. For instance, Arma III running on default Ultra, including AA AF and I get 60 to 70 FPS consistent. Also runs pretty quiet under load.
Cons: Non so far
Overall Review: EVGA has always made quality products and they back it with a good warranty. Running EVGA X99 Micro 2, EVGA 750 PSU, EVGA GTX980 and I love my system so far!
Pros: Always go Intel! :-) Great quality CPU, fast at stock settings. 6 core for a good price.
Overall Review: This CPU is running in my system using the EVGA Micro2 X99 and it smokes anything I through at it.
Pros: Keeps my i7 5820K around the low 30's when idle, the Noctua fans are great quality and quite. The installations was very simple.
Pros: Very happy with the fan because the price was not bad for the quality and noise reduction. I have two of these running on my Noctua CPU cooler and ordered a third for my case. Very quite fans.
Pros: Clean design, feels and looks like quality manufacturing. It is also very quite. I have always been a big fan of EVGA and very happy with their service, warrant and the quality of their products.
This PSU has no problems running my EVGA X99 Micro 2, Intel 5820K i7 and EVGA GTX980 :-)
Overall Review: I have built a lot of gaming systems and normally go with Corsair but with this kind of quality and warranty I might be switch my standard.
Pros: It works awesome as a thermal adhesive... even workds on my CPU!
Cons: Did not realize this was an adhesive and disappointed that it showed up as a recommended purchase with my aftermarket heatsink... guess i should have paid more attention.
This was an accidental purchase and I thought I was getting artic silver thermal paste. This appeared when I was purchasing a CPU cooler. Furthermore, there was no warning that stuck out on the advertisement or packaging. I used this product and glued my CPU to my heatsink. It is a good thing that my aftermarket cool was on right and this was a thermal adhesive because my computer still runs... very disappointed.
Pros: This card was priced very well with a -$10 discount and -$30 rebate! Picked up this card to run Starcraft 2 on a Dell Optiplex 745 :-). Overall for what I have and the price I paid I can run the game at medium graphics @ 1280x1024 and it runs smooth. + Asus will do a rapid rebate for $3 dollars off your rebate ;-) Thank you ASUS!
Overall Review: System specs. Dell Optiplex Core 2 Duo, 4GB DDR2 800 Dual Channel, WD7200 HD (pretty much stock) and this card - ASUS ENGT240 ;-) Hey it runs!
Pros: This is a great case, very nice looking and room for SLI! :-) The air flow is good standard but much better after adding two fans on the side pannel. All matte black interior...! The pros far out weigh the cons on this one. I would purchase this case again for another build!
Cons: There are a couple things to watch for... This case comes with 3 fans one of which is an top exaust fan. I have a Zalman 9700 NT 110mm heatsink/fan and I had to remove the top exaust fan for this to fit. However I think if I get one of the thin 120mm fans it should fit. Also the motherboard stands that were in the case already (two of them) did not line up exactly with my board and it made things a little harder to get in. I would recommend taking these out and just putting in two normal ones. Be sure to pick some up because there is not enough with the case unless you use these.
Overall Review: Great Case! A little price cut would be nice :-)
Pros: This heatsink fan keeps my I7 920 running very cool! These chips run hot anyway and I would recommend this product for anyone running I7.
Very easy to install with the 1366 bracket. Make sure that you have a long phillips screw driver
Pros: The terrain detail, scope and over all concept are good.
Cons: For a military simulation this game is extremely unrealistic! Not only that but the voice over, sounds quality, voice acting and controls are horrible. Not to mention the game is full of glitches! I would not recommend wasting your money on this game.
Anyone that gives this game any credit knows nothing about what makes a good game...
Overall Review: If you want a cool FPS for PC go with Crysis Warhead.
Pros: Oops... Gave my review for this board under my processor review... Great low cost board! Runs my q9550 at full spead and north bridge stays cool.
Pros: My Zalman is sitting on a Q9550 and keeps the cores idle around 37-40c and on load none of my cores get higher than 52c. Nice Cooling, Thanks Zalman and New Egg.
