Pros: Literally just everything about this card. Installation of the drivers were a little tricky, but still easy, most likely do to the number of games I have installed. After installation, this thing runs like a dream! Very nearly silent in my case, and runs idle at around 44c. It actually runs cooler full bore HD gaming than my 9800 GT did at idle almost! 65c is normal op temperature while gaming, and not a single hiccup! Most of my games are currently maxed on HD settings and run as smooth as silk. Run 2 of these SLI and you can take on anything if you have the space available!
Cons: Don't really have any cons on this one...which is rare for me! I needed it the day I ordered it, and newegg couldn't transport it to me as they don't have the technolgy to yet. It still got here remarkably fast in spite of that.
Other Thoughts: Absolutely the best investment I've made in my PC in a long time! I honestly can't believe I went as long as I did without this powerhouse in my system! My only regret was that I couldn't wait until Watch Dogs came out, since Daylight isn't that great...but it was free. I would have gotten this card with No free game, and would have been just as satisfied with my purchase!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CM Storm Devastator - LED Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Combo Bundle (Blue Edition)
Pros: Great looking design, well constructed for the most part. Mechanical keyboard works good, shift buttons stick if not pressed at the perfect angle. Backlit design works well as long as you don't mind scroll lock being on. Without illumination the key assignments are not visible. Mouse works great, has a DPI indicator built into the button, and has a blue sensor as well. Very cool looking and functional!
Cons: Not too many cons to be honest. The keyboard was missing one of the rubber foot pads upon arrival, the one in the front center no less! I can already see where it's bowing from use because of it. Mechanical keyboard works good, shift buttons stick if not pressed at the perfect angle. I would have given it 5 eggs were it not for those two things.
Other Thoughts: It's a good set for a beginning gamer, or someone building their first PC. As for gaming options on the keyboard itself, there are none. Basically it just works and looks cool; which is exactly the reason I purchased it. That and it matches my PC build perfectly. Beyond that, if you're looking for customizable options and programmability, I would look elsewhere.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Arctic Square 92mm Vapo Bearing CPU Cooler
Pros: I have this sitting on top of an E8400 Wolfdale mounted on a P5Q Pro OC'd to 4 gigs, 1700 FSB; and at idle my CPU hovers at about 80ish degrees. On a full load, it occasionally goes over 100 degrees; and the Arctic Silver that's on it hasn't even cured yet!
Cons: Seems like it might put some stress on a cheap MB, otherwise; none that I can think of.
Other Thoughts: When the Arctic Silver cures, I imagine I will be seeing full load temps of under 100 degrees. AND it looks cool!READ FULL REVIEW
