Pros: Not much
Cons: Arm rests are awful I predict they break in a month. I only paid $100 but the hour putting it together was not worth the result.
Pros: Still running today (5 years later) overclocked @ 4.3GHz and handling all games I throw at it. This processor is why I will always buy intel.
Pros: -Great heat dissipation.
Cons: -More documentation would be nice.
Overall Review: Make sure to check timings in bios, previous ram (1600mhz ddr3 dominator 8gb 4 sticks) had different timings 8-8-8-24-2 and this ram has 9-9-9-24-1. I don't know what that last number means but nothing on the packaging or specifications here specified the last number and I had several crashes until I put bios on auto and it set the value to 1.
Pros: -Replaced my Sapphire 7970 vapor X
-Runs quiet and fast
-Installed on Windows 10 no problem
Cons: -Really big card, fits in my Corsair case but it was close.
Pros: Was browsing through my newegg purchases from the past and these are one of the first things I bought. Still work great even today!
Cons: -Headphone port has some static but could simply be headphones.
Pros: Quiet, powerful, great price
Cons: How does Corsair make money?
Overall Review: I was recently looking through my past new egg purchases and got to the last page. I bought this psu in 2009 and am still using it! It's been in 3 PCs now. I' currently running an Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz with an SAPPHIRE HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB GDDR5 VAPOR-X flawlessly.
I will forever buy Corsair products simply because of this psu.
Pros: Had a Sapphire 6970 and upgraded to this. Runs like 20 degrees cooler idle and under full load than my 6970 and obviously much faster.
Cooling is amazing. Fan speed rarely goes over 30%. Best card I've ever owned.
Cons: None thus far.
Pros: She put some games on it.
Cons: All the downloading
Overall Review: You couldn't pay me to play these awful games.
