I use this build to kill any game I throw at it. :)
I have OC'd to 4.5GHz with no problems, however I keep it at around 3.8-4 because I honestly don't gain much. Even at base clocks, an amazing processor.
Shame on me for not noticing that this one didn't have a LED on the water block, but the performance is otherwise amazing after replacing the OEM fans with Noctua 140mms.
I love the features, and the experience has been flawless.
The HDDs definitely click a lot when writing (sounds like a Coffee machine boiler), but that is mechanical HDDs for you. Not a major issue because most I/O is from SSD, and these are used for capacity.
It wouldn't be fair to say that this deserves a lower rating because the 980Ti was released, because this card is still amazing and more than I need to power any game at 144FPS. I have been able to OC to 90/250 at about 72 degrees, but it's loud because of the custom fan curve (I wouldn't be comfortable with temps without using the fan curve).
This case has been the best build experience I ever had. I would recommend this for anyone.
Works great, no issues. I use the mode where the fan is off unless under moderate to high load, and it works great.
Quite. Flawless. Cool.
Quite. Flawless. Cool.
I had mine replaced through Amazon because of a dead pixel and many which had issues and a ton of backlight bleed, so this is for #2.
Significantly less backlight bleed, but still some in bottom right corner. Not very noticeable unless black screen and I really focus on it. Before i could notice colors were off on any solid color (even non-solid desktop background).
Gap beneath hardware buttons allows the power LED to shine through. Gap is large enough that at many angles I can actually see the LED itself. This could be disabled in a firmware update to just disable it though.
Gaming experience, movies and regular PC use has been fantastic.
Fantastic. Great build quality. The only thing that I can dock it on is the USB locations and no n-key rollover without a PS/2 adapter. These are resolved with another model, which I recommend more than this.
I think I got mine on sale a few years ago for ~$40, and it's been great. I've started to experience some issues now with clicks not registering in games, but that might be me (I'm "new" to PC gaming [new meaning I've taken a break for a few years]).
Absolutely flawless. They are comfortable, and if you have the AMP (I use my motherboard's) they sound amazing. Games, movies and music really comes to life, and I don't know how I lived without these. ;)
