This review is from: ROCCAT Kave XTD 5.1 Digital Gaming Headset
Pros: - Comfort
- Sound Quality
- True 5.1
- Mic Quality is Good
- Can take calls when paire with Cell (this is dope)
- Mute/Speaker switch placement is well thought
- Cable doesn't tangle
Cons: - The knob for the sound is loose and it's hard to be precise with it but sincerely it doesn't matter. It's all i could think about.
Other Thoughts: Get this headset. I've been playing games since i was 13yo and i am now 28. I've tested Trittons, Sennheisers, Bose and i came to the conclusion that the Roccat Kave XTD 5.1 Digital (the analog one isn't as good) is the best headset for gaming. You see a bunch of claims everywhere with headsets being 5.1/7.1 surround sound. Well most of them are emulated through a Dolby amplifier or whatever. This leads to sound misplacement sometimes and in games such as Call of Duty/Battlefield/Counter-strike, it can make you take bad decisions. Mind you, the game has to support 5.1. But the fact that each earcup has 3 drivers (front, sides, back) means that you get a true 5.1 experience. When i played my first game of BF4 with these i was amazed and still is. Sometimes i try other headsets from friends and always find that they're cheap and of lesser quality. The build is strong, you can twist them easy and nothing will break. I'm usually playing for 20-30hours a week and never experience any pain around the ears or etc. Comfort is A1.
Overall, if you're looking for a gamer headset with real 5.1 and cellphone capabilities THIS is what you want. From a gamer to another, do no hesitat you will not be deceived. For the sound clarity though, i'd get the sennheiser's (you know if you mix or whatever).
Pros: - Samsung Chips
- Easily Overclockable
- Nice Design
- Plenty of space (32gb)
- Worked A1 since installation
Cons: - Would've like the newest samsung chips (perform better!, see z170 gskills memories)
- Runs a little hot (heatspreaders) once overclocked but this isn't REALLY a con.
Other Thoughts: I would like to take the time to tell people that DON'T KNOW HOW THE X99 platform works to just stop writing bad reviews for DDR4-3000 kits.
First of all, anything over 2133mhz is an overclock of your "imc" which depends on the sillicon lottery (some people may block at 2800mhz while others may easily go up to 3300mhz) so plz stop complaining about that.
Second, PLEASE, buy kits that are made for YOUR platform (x99 and z170 post memory stress test and behaviors are very different).
Third stop blaming G.skills for your lack of knowledge, it is my second kit with them (first one was 16gb DDR4-3000mhz) and if you know what you are doing, you'll be just fine.
Fourth, do not use XMP, most of the time it is just bad for some reason. Using manual mode i can get much better performances out of any memory kit. e.g i run this kit @2800 cas 13-13-13-33-1T@1.375v, and it is "crushing" 3000mhz cas 15-15-15-35-2T.
Fifth, seek help on your motherboard manufacturer forum (i have a R5E) and asus mods have been of great help for "how to" and "tutorial" posts. They've been there since day 1.
Sixth, PLEASE make sure the memory you buy is on the QVL of your motherboard.
Seventh, i would recommend buying kits rated at much higher speeds that what you're aiming for. e.g buy a kit of 3000mhz if you aim for 2600mhz. This will give you alot of headroom for manuverability in case of instability.
There i said it all. If you follow this, you'll never have problem with memory ever.
This review is from: NETGEAR R7000 Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Smart Home Router
Pros: It works as intended. I was somewhat scared of buying this product because of very bad reviews people gave it. But i have to say i am very well pleased. I tried to make it crash or overheat (using a lot of torrent connections @8mo/sec) and couldn't... the thing is robust!. I'm also using a ps4/2x iphones on wi-fi and works as intended. Style is elegant, i love it. Antenna bars are stylish and the overall feel of the product is quite positive in my opinion. Installation couldn't have been any easier, really. Plug it in, get in the settings and boom, 2 minutes later i was surfing. I have to say that my internet feels way more responsive than before, i had an old DIR-615 and whenever i would reach over 2-3mo/sec on a torrent i couldn't watch any youtube videos or even browse the internet. With the nighthawk, i just start anything and it just keeps up with whatever i want to do. Lights are not too intrusive, it's a low contrast white which is fine. overall 5/5
Cons: The only con i could find is that the thing is "large" but i already knew it so i didn't care since i have so much place on my desktop.
Other Thoughts: There have been so many bad reviews, don't go and think that everybody has gotten a bad experience with netgear's nighthawk. From what i've seen, it performs quite as described. For 200$ shipped to my door i couldn't pass on the offer.READ FULL REVIEW
