NZXT HUE+ Smart RGB Color Changing Digitally Controlled LED PC Lighting

5 out of 5 eggs Great lighting and options 01/06/2017

This review is from: NZXT HUE+ Smart RGB Color Changing Digitally Controlled LED PC Lighting

Pros: RGB color.
Magnetic strips
3m backing if you dont have a steel chasis.
very customizable light effects
can customize channel 1 and channel 2 seperately----kind of
expandable to 8 strips
various extension lengths
Fairly easy install

Cons: no real big cons.
Stupid cheap molex connector as with most add ons.

Other Thoughts: Fist thing, If you have a strip not working, read the dang directions. I had one strip not working at all and one was half lit up. Turns out in the directions it will show you how the arrows need to lign up with the +5v pin. Boom. All strips work.

The software (CAM) is a little laggy for me.
The Channel editing is a bit odd. When you select channel 1 and get it set up the way you want it, you can untick the channel 1 box and then tick channel 2 to set it up. At this point channel 2 is mirrored to channel 1. Proceed to edit channel to for a different pattern/color. When you untick channel 2 and tick channel 1, it has now mirrored channel 2. So there is no real way to look at what setting you have on channel 1 once you set and save channel 2. As long as you save the settings for channel 1 by its self and channel 2 by its self, you can have different color/patterns on each channel.

Overall I love this kit. I change the pattterns and colors often.

GIGABYTE Radeon RX 470 G1 Gaming 4GB GV-RX470G1 GAMING-4GD

5 out of 5 eggs Good card 12/23/2016

This review is from: GIGABYTE Radeon RX 470 G1 Gaming 4GB GV-RX470G1 GAMING-4GD

Pros: It runs the games i want to run at Ultra around 60fps.
My system is not a monster gaming machine, budget build I would say. I also don't care to overclock if I am hitting decent frame rates. So i can not speak to those abilities. I runs GTA 5 on ultra, Hitman 2016 on ultra as well as Skyrim. Rust runs 60fps on ultra also.

Rig:
970extreme4 atx mobo
8gb 1866 Corsair ram
Fx6300 BLack CPU
Corsair CX500 psu
Gigabyte rx 470 G1 4gb gpu
Rosewill RIse "full" tower.
Some CPU cooler that i can not remember the name.

I got it at a good price and a free game came with it.
I like the RGB led lights on the side.
Set up was not hard as people made it sound. Go to the website, grab the drivers.

Cons: On one occasion I was sitting at my computer watching a youtube video when i heard the card fans go FULL on 100% rpm. I then realized I had not switched on my 3 front fans. My case has a Hi-Low-Silent switch. So I turned my fans on in the front and noticed that even though my GPU fans were maxing out, the led on the side still said fan stop. Looked at the Xtreme app and noticed the card temp was not near the temp to run the fans. I think my fans kick in at 45c, card was at 40c. It soon stopped on its own. About an hour later it happened again. I finally restarted the computer and have been on it about an hour with no further spool-ups. I will keep posted if it happens again.

Other Thoughts: If the fans go nuts again, I will update and maybe start the RMA process. It may have been a goofy update or something on my side.

Rosewill Rise - ATX Full Tower Gaming Computer Case - Supports Up to E-ATX MBs, Dual PSUs, and Up to 7 Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The case is very tall. The dust filters are very easy to remove and clean. Push click off/on style. The fan controller on the header panel is nice. The discription says the Glow model comes with LED fans and a tinted side panel window, so I did not expect to have the side window. Apparently they include it in the glow and non glow models now. Case window is very dark. I personally like it that way. Will keep any future lighting from being to overbearing. There is a ton of room for cable management. Great value full size case. Paid $45 after rebate

My temperatures dropped 10-15 degrees across the board. Everything is running sub 50c with this case.

Cons: Not real cons, just things to mention. The length of the case is the same as my Fractal atx mid size. No issue for me as i am running an atx mobo. The side window is very dark if you have no led accents or fans, which I currently do not. I personally like this but some may not. I am going for a dark Harley Davidson colored build.

Other Thoughts: Have had the case for a week as of Dec 11/2016. If anything changes i will update here.
