Razer Goliathus Gaming Mouse Mat - Fragged Control Edition - Standard M

5 out of 5 eggs Worth Every Penny 06/20/2013

This review is from: Razer Goliathus Gaming Mouse Mat - Fragged Control Edition - Standard M

Pros: Yes, it really improves accuracy.

For graphics work, including the most tedious pixel-by-pixel projects, it's fantastic.

For anyone who has never tried a gaming pad and is still using some random standard mouse pad, this will really make you say 'wow.'

Cons: Not AS good as the Razer hard gaming pads, but that's really just personal preference.

Other Thoughts: Do not underestimate the size/dimensions. Make sure you have the space for it.

Thermaltake Frio Overclocking-Ready Intel Core i7 (6-core ready) & i5 Compatible Five 8mm Heatpipes Dual 120mm Fans Intel & AMD Universal CPU Cooler CLP0564 - Retail

Pros: EXCELLENT cooling power, dropped my I-7 (mild OC @ 3ghz) down about 15 degrees from an older Thermaltake Spin-Q.

Actually not that difficult to mount, and once it's mounted it is solid. (Much better than the plastic pins other coolers have).

Under heavy load it doesn't climb much higher than 40C with current specs.

Cons: None of these cons are enough to drop the rating more than one egg as they can be avoided.

It is seriously big. I am not able to use the 2nd fan due to the proximity to the RAM. It's either 2 fans and 3 DIMMS or 1 fan and 4 DIMMS. My case is big, but a super tower is really the only way to fly to fit this thing.

It's a tad loud, even with one fan. It has an attached manual speed controlling knob..mine is at 100%.

It's heavy. The screw-mount system is needed to keep it in place...not sure how much stress it really puts on the MoBo...

Other Thoughts: For a new build this is an excellent choice. You can pair it with a big MoBo and case so everything fits nicely.

For a replacement, it is a hassle somewhat. I had to remove everything from the MoBo and remove it to attach the bottom mounting bracket, plus my case needed some -- modification. I also removed some of the decorative plastic from the top for it to fit.

Overall: Worth every dollar if you are ready for it.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast, smooth, easy to set up and import files/settings from an older mac. Great display, great camera (not that I actually need a web cam). Powerful, handles Photoshop CS5 like a champ.

Cons: Uses mini-HDMI output for second monitor....not much of a con, more of an inconvenience. Includes the magic mouse....too strange for regular use.

Other Thoughts: Don't tell my dad....I LIKE this Mac.
