This review is from: Corsair Gaming K55 RGB Keyboard, Backlit RGB LED
Pros: 6 macro keys, a wrist rest that's actually comfortable for once, and an overall well-made good looking keyboard make this worth picking up. It's not a mechanical keyboard but I like the feel of the keys, and it's not too loud. The volume and media controls are a definite necessity, and work nicely.
Adjustable brightness is nice, as well as the ability to turn the lights off when needed.
Cons: When in the custom lighting mode all the lights flicker very noticeably, making it completely unusable. All the other lighting modes work fine. But custom lighting is a big selling point.
I wish the volume and media control buttons were lit, they're very hard to see in a dark room.
It's not as customizeable as other older Corsair keyboards as there is no software utility, you have to use the Fn button (which replaces the right windows key) to change the colors. The Fn button doesn't seem to have any other purpose so I wish it was in a less conspicuous location.
This review is from: RAZER Naga Hex Wired USB Gaming Mouse - Green
Pros: Extremely ergonomic, excellent button placement. The buttons are perfect for things like ctrl/alt/shift so you can further multiply your available keybinds in MMOs and similar games.
Cons: I wish the hex had the profile of the new regular Naga, as I think it's a little bit more comfortable. Not a big deal though.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: After having several power supplies in a row from other brands with moderate to bad coil whine I was excited after booting this one up and not hearing any from this unit. That alone makes this power supply a definite keeper.
With 1200W it's got plenty of power for even the most demanding hardware. I was also impressed with the sheer number of devices the included modular cables can support. Out of the 10 modular sockets on the power supply itself I only ended up needing to use 3 of them to power 1 HDD, 2 SSDs, a nVidia GTX 1070, the Motherboard and CPU, and a fan controller. So I've got plenty of cables (and power) to grow into.
I can't hear the fan on this unit at all, at least not over the other fans in the system.
The 80 PLUS Gold certification is definitely appreciated, wasting less power and saving you money on your electric bill is always a plus.
Cons: The CPU power cords were a little bit short if you're into good cable management. If they were an inch or two longer that would have been great. Everything else seemed to be about the perfect length.
The main motherboard power cable is also really thick and isn't flat like the others.
Minor complaint, but the cables were a bit more unwieldy and less maneuverable than those of other brands.
Other Thoughts: This power supply also has the ability to power two CPU sockets, a must-have for some people and a non-item for most. But if you want to run two CPUs, this thing's got the power you need.READ FULL REVIEW
