Pros: Comes with all the parts, looks nice
Cons: Under load, my CPU gets up to 70 degrees! (AMD FX-8350)
Other Thoughts: I honestly feel like I'm just missing something. This is my first ever build, but it seems to be running hot. Did I apply the thermal paste wrong? I used Arctic Silver 5, which had the highest reviews. I've reseated this cooler twice already. I'm considering buying the 212 EVO and just putting the LED fan from this cooler onto that one, but I'll be doing more research first.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NZXT 5.25-Inch Hue RGB LED Color Changing Controller (AA-HUE30-01)
Pros: -Very bright
-Easy to use
-Enough LED strip to wrap around the entire outside perimeter of my full size tower.
Cons: -Adhesive is worthless
Other Thoughts: Worthless adhesive is literally the only issue with this thing. I'm in a financial tough spot right now and can't afford double sided tape (yet I can afford this; Shows where my priorities are) but I happened to have black duct tape laying around that matches my case. You can't even see the tape.
There are plenty of reviews about not having the Blues or the lights not being bright enough. If you have either of these issues, flip the plug. It can be plugged in upside-down but only works properly when plugged in correctly. Also, don't confuse the standard diodes and wires with the LEDs. They look similar but they are not DOA LEDs. I'm not saying you won't receive a defective unit, but I am saying that mine is 100% perfect with no issues at all. Except for the tape.
Pros: -Looks cool
-2 thumb buttons which can be configured in game. Also useful for browsing the internet as they double as forward/back buttons
-DPS control button behind scroll wheel that my 1 year old daughter discovered before I did
-Glowing red dragon logo
Cons: -Looks so good my 1 year old daughter likes to try and play with it
Other Thoughts: At first I was concerned about the low DPI because I was coming from a Razor DeathAdder (6400DPI), so I thought 1600DPI would feel choppy. Well, it turns out you only notice these things if you absolutely have to be 100% precise. And since I'm not an Arma 3 sniper, it feels exactly the same to me. Like no joke, unless you're a super competitive hardcore hooah virtual sniper, there's a certain point where these 4 digit numbers are nothing more than numbers. 1600 feels the same as 6400, and this mouse is much lighter, too. Makes it easier to 360 noscope nubz. Or if you're like me and play MOBAs and not CoD, it makes it easier to back up your "gg ez mid" call or whatever you guys do. Or RTS players, micromanage your armies, Idk man. What would you do with something that's easier to move than a paperweight?READ FULL REVIEW
