NZXT CB-LED10-BU Sleeved LED Kit - Blue, 1 m
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Worked great but...!!!! 05/19/2014

This review is from: NZXT CB-LED10-BU Sleeved LED Kit - Blue, 1 m

Pros: Worked as described; added lots of extra color and detail to my Corsair 650D. Connections, switches and installation; simple and components fit very well.

Cons: It's been just under a year since my purchase / installation and there are only two LED's still working. There are two or more that "flicker" off and on; if I'm lucky. But, that is actually a little worse then just working; makes me think something is wrong and is distracting!

Other Thoughts: LED's by design are supposed to last much longer then traditional light sources (and use less energy). It looks like NZXT used the "cheap" version of LED's in this instance. Final thoughts: Great concept but, very poor quality product; I hope other NZXT products don't share the same poor product longevity

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10

Pros: Rock solid RAM: got the first 8Gb stick as a "promotional" w/ my ASUS P8 z77-v PRO. Purchased the second 8Gb (on sale); now running, 16Gb total. My Asus Motherboard easily let me clock it to 6-6-6-17 (still @ 1.5v) no problem. I'm sure I could "tighten" it a little more but, as is: Never a single glitch, lock, re-boot due to the ram. I'm also running a CM EVO 212 CPU Cooler but, I just rotated it 90Deg so that it is facing front to back w/ a "push - pull" dual fan solution and have no problems with the height of the ram > I just "seated" the RAM before I installed the CPU & Cooler (other motherboards will have different placement for the RAM slots so, be sure to check your MoBo before you purchase).

Cons: Still, could be cheaper; I purchased the CL10 (knowing that since it was Corsair I could run it at "tighter" clocks) version and it was still almost a buck a Megabyte. The CL9 version is almost $10 more for the 8Gb model ($20 saving for me total). Save the money / buy the CL10 and clock it yourself !

Other Thoughts: Very happy w/ this RAM and other Corsair products (in general). Would definitely recommend this product !

Final thought: When purchasing any "Brand" be sure to purchase their "premium" products if you want it to function as a "premium" product.

MSI N770 Lightning G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Works great / when it works. Runs cool / fans are quiet and GPU Boost 2 is a great addition. Out of the box this card runs @ 1.254Ghz. Will kill any game on "max" settings with +70 (or better) FPS and never gets over 70c in temps (1900x1080). The fan sound on the card is never over 70db. I can't even hear it; yet it still keeps the Temps to a very low level.

Cons: This card has given me more problems then any other Graphics card in history: Nvidia seems to be adding a new driver every two weeks to get it sorted out!?! I'm not sure I can blame MSI or Nvidia but, I get random "lock up" in: BF3, BFBC, Cry2 & 3, Sniper Elite V2, Metro LL & 2033 (and others). The "lock ups" seem to be getting less frequent with each driver release but, still w/ the latest driver "326.80" I can only play any given game for 3 to 30 Min without a lock up!?! I pulled my 770 Lightning and installed my old MSI 660Ti OC and no problems (played games for hours) what so ever > so, it's the card and not my system. :(

Other Thoughts: I contacted MSI support and opened a "Technical support request" and described my problems in painful detail and all I got back was a (3) "generic" email telling me to read the manual -> REALLY?
MSI support is a "joke" as far as I can tell. I would think twice or even three times before I purchased this product. I've had really good luck with prior MSI video cards / dumped my MSI 670 PE OC (which worked flawlessly) for this one but, if this is the support you get when you have an issue: I'd direct others to buy from a better (EVGA) vender for better service and support. Sigh..
