Amazing anti-theft on Newegg's part1/15/2014 6:52:35 PM

Pros: I already owned and loved the Corsair k70 keyboard with red switches for about half a year, then I was at the store and got to use a different manufacturer's keyboard that had blue switches. The moment I got home, I had to order this one.

Cons: NONE I bought a second one just to get the different key switch type.

Overall Review: I got home from work on the day it arrived and was expecting to see a newegg box, but nope. There was a box that had cheap $30 keyboard-mouse combo pictures on it. I started freaking out. "they better not have shipped me this, I'm not paying to ship this back". Then I cut the tape and there it was: my awesome keyboard box inside of the cheap keyboard box. I was so relieved when I saw it.

DON'T hook led to fan controller9/24/2013 8:54:38 PM

Pros: Awesome fan, its quiet moves a good amount of air. Has a bright red led's that match BitFenix's alchemy led's. You can hook the led's up to a switch.

Cons: DON'T hook the LED's up to a fan controller to get it to stay at maximum brightness. I tried to hook the LED's up to the fan controller that comes built into my case with the fan plugged into the mobo header on my ROG board... IT KILLED THE FAN HEADER it was my fault i take complete blame for the death of my fan header

Great Cable, 1 Problem7/30/2013 1:08:59 PM

Pros: Cheep cable Amazing picture quality for the price

Cons: This cable does not support copy protected software AKA *Blue-ray Discs*

Overall Review: I had this cable connecting my HTPC to my TV. A few months went by before I tried to watch a blue-ray disc with this. I put the disc in and the software i use popped up a notification saying there was a copy protection issue. I tried another cable and problem solved. Its a great cable for the price, just make sure the cable you are using can do what you need it to.

Pros: Everything I have a 240 GB Corsair Neutron GTX in this SilverStone RAVEN RVS02 external enclosure they are so fast together. i was able to move 65 gigs in 3 minutes

Cons: the ssd was a little to thin for the SilverStone RAVEN RVS02 enclosure so i went to the hardware store and got some $3.50 felt bumpers just to fill the space just so it wont be moving around in the enclosure. I used 5 felt bumpers now i need to find something to do with the remaining 79 felt bumpers. It comes with a powered USB y cable that is VERY long and my USB ports supply enough power to where i don't need it, so i zip tied it to the other cable to keep it from dangleing around to prevent it from scratching up the paint on my computer.

Overall Review: I transferred everything from my old WD external USB 3.0 hdd to my computer it took 20 minutes then everything to this drive in only 3 MINUTES the words expressing how surprised i was about the speed are not aloud on neweeg's reviews

Almost a perfect case6/11/2013 2:25:59 PM

Pros: I'm using it as a home theater PC so it fits and looks great in my TV stand. Its in a TV stand and i still get good temps The ODD i chose has a glossy front like the case witch made everything match very nicely. Nice modeler design I was able to tuck the cable's i didn't use between the PSU and the case fan so they weren't blocking any air flow

Cons: PSU fan was to loud for my liking so i switched it out with one would only run the fan when it gets under load (ordered it a few weeks after i finished the build so it has not arrived yet) the case fan that came with it was nice and quiet but it didn't move much air so i swapped it out my GPU has a small fan on it and IN WIN did not put vet holes in this case for GPU's. (Nothing a drill couldn't fix) the ODD was 1/4" longer than most so I had some clearance issues with the CPU heat sink. I had to break off part of 2 of the many fins (did not change my CPU temps)

Overall Review: I would build another computer out of this case again. I would recommend this case as a HTPC or as a steambox MOBO: MSI FM2-A75IA-E53 FM2 AMD A75 CPU: AMD A8-5600K Trinity 3.6GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) GPU: MSI R6570-MD2GD3/LP Radeon HD 6570 2GB RAM: G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1866 SSD: Corsair Neutron Series GTX CSSD-N240GB ODD: LG Black 12X Blu-ray Combo Drive PSU: SeaSonic SS-300TGW 300W TFX12V 80 PLUS GOLD CPU Cooler: COOLER MASTER GeminII M4 COOLER MASTER R4 Blade Master 120mm fan Case Fan: COOLER MASTER R4 Blade Master 80mm fan OS: Windows 8 64-bit Keyboard: IOGEAR GKM681R Mini Keyboard / Optical Trackball and Scroll Wheel

looks awesome bad instructions4/30/2013 11:36:37 AM

Pros: gives the dominator platinums a different look. In my opinion it looks better. It comes with enough screws to no use the screws that you have to take off, i didn't use them but i knew if i stripped one i had plenty of extras.

Cons: the installation instructions are wrong in one instance and missing a part in another. see other thoughts for more info. these light bars are not polished like the stock ones

Overall Review: the part that is wrong in the instructions is that the clear plastic that came with this shows that you need to put it on upside down. the missing part in the instructions is that the plastic piece that is in the old light bar needs to be taken out and put in the new light bar. (I had to take all 4 of my dimms apart again once i realized what was wrong) other than that its a great product.

awesome lighting strip4/12/2013 7:22:26 AM

Pros: Very bright lighting strip Fits perfectly in the top and bottom channel behind the door of the corsair graphite 600 T

Cons: Does not come with adhesive tape like the description describes so i took one egg off for false advertising i have 2 of these, they both didnt come with adhesive so i know it wasn't just a mess up when the strip was made

Overall Review: i have 2 of these lighting strips a 20 cm in the bottom and a 30 cm in the top of my case. It didn't come with adhesive so i had to buy my own witch was no big deal if you have the corsair graphite 600 T I would strongly recommend the BitFenix Aqua LED strip because they are very bright and the size seems like they were made for this case in particular.

Corsair vengeance M653/8/2013 10:08:11 AM

Pros: awesome having 3 presets because some fps games move the camera much faster than others now i don't have to change the in game settings for every game very easy to switch sensitivity mid game sniper button is amazing I even use it when I'm not playing games because i like having the dpi set faster than i should

Cons: I keep my hand far back on the mouse to where my thumb is a tiny bit to short to reach the sniper button but that's a con on myself not a con on the mouse

does not match the other purple xigmatek fans2/28/2013 7:20:21 PM

Pros: They work

Cons: they do not come anywhere near matching any of the other purple xigmatek fans 2 eggs off because well... 2 non purple fans, 2 eggs taken away

Overall Review: I needed 2 80mm, 2 140mm, and 2 120mm purple fans for my build. I read the reviews saying they had 1 purple & 1 blue fan. Newegg was sold out of the single packs so i spent the extra money and bought 2 of these. i received 4 fans but they were all a blueish purple color that dont match any of the other xigmatek fans i had bought. i ended up buying the single packs from another site cause i didint want to wait for newegg to get them in stock

Very Satisfied2/22/2013 6:44:13 AM

Pros: Extremely Bright. You only need one of these to light up your entire case Was able to wedge it perfectly in a channel right behind the door at the top of my Corsair Graphite 600T case. Very easy install.

Cons: one egg off because it did not come with adhesive.

Overall Review: I used black electrical tape to make sure it wont fall out of the channel in my case. You cant see the tape or the lighting strip from the side windows or the grates in the top of the case.

do waist your time with the rebate2/6/2013 5:52:15 PM

Pros: Drive works without a problem

Cons: I submitted my rebate sending them the rebate form, Bar code and my order confirmation. ASUS declined it saying "Receipt/Invoice or Packing List is missing". They even had a link showing scans of all the paperwork i sent in.

Overall Review: my entire computer is intell ASUS and corsair I used the order confirmation for all of my rebates 3 rebates from corsair ACCEPTED 1 rebate from ASUS DECLINED the only reason i took 2 eggs away is because of the rebate problem

awesome fan1/16/2013 11:55:54 AM

Pros: I bought this fan accidentally instead of the 120mm. I kept it because fans are cheep. I ended up needing to replace the front stock 200mm fan in my graphite 600t case so I used this fan because the stock one would whistle when it would rev up. Surprisingly my system is running a little bit cooler with the smaller fan.

Cons: Corsair doesn't make a 200mm quiet edition fan witch isn't a con agents this fan. With the fan at the front of my case the wire wasn't long enough to reach my motherboard headder without an extension cable.

Overall Review: If corsair made a 200mm quiet edition fan I would buy it just so I could have the proper size fan in my case.
