Pros: Small Form Factor, Sturdy, Backlit, CherryMX Blue's, N-Key Rollover, Braided Cable, Removable Key Caps
Cons: Detachable Cable
Other Thoughts: The CM Storm QuickFire TK is a tournament sized keyboard that integrates the 10 keys found in the middle of a full size keyboard in the num pad, which most keyboards this size completely eliminate. Its perfectly sized for my needs. The keyboard is heavy and solid. It stays in place. The backlit keys are really bright and individually lit. Behind the keys is a reflective blue that looks great. The backlight has 5 brightness levels and features 3 modes that can illuminate only the wsad and directional keys on the numpad (numlock disabled). With numlock enabled only the numbers are shown. Very nice. The only key made smaller to fit is the windows key (which can be disabled) the rest are full sized. This keyboard is a pleasure to type on, and a great value in comparison to its competitors. Highly recommended.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very Stable, Overclocks Easily, High Quality Heatsinks.
Other Thoughts: I've been using Corsair Dominator RAM for years. Its some of the best desktop memory you can buy as an enthusiast. The chips are selected from the best bins, so they overclock easily, and are stable when pushed hard. Corsair also uses a custom PCB with a heavy dual heatsink design called DHX. The sticks are solid and built like a tank. Night and day compared to their Vengeance line. These are rated at 1600mhz, but will clock much higher if you have the voltage. A great value compared to faster rated sticks from other inferior brands. Once you try Dominator ram everything else seems sub standard.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: High quality design. Nice mounting hardware. All cables black sleeved. Quiet.
Cons: Instructions look like a treasure map. Stiff lines.
Other Thoughts: This is a high quality cooler at a great price. The mounting hardware is typical CM, very solid. Getting the mount and brackets installed was no trouble at all. Once the motherboard standoffs are in place you align them with the screws and tighten down. The instructions are not very clear, but you need to set the motherboard mount and pump brackets to the correct size depending on your CPU. Each screw has 3 positions. Since mine is 1155 I used the middle position on each, and everything lined up perfectly. I recommend installing the pump first then the radiator. The pump is very quiet and gives off a faint buzzing sound typical of a small aquarium pump. If it wasn't for the blue LED I wouldn't know its running. I'm not using the included fans so I cannot comment on how noisy they are. The included silicone gasket should keep them from rattling on the radiator. My temps so far have been great. <20*C idle and average 60*C under full load. Impressive.READ FULL REVIEW
