Best Halo game I've played

Posted

Pros: Everything

Cons: Some minor graphical and multiplayer glitches

I'm going to make this short and sweet: -I didn't pre-order Halo 4, right until the day before the launch, as I wasn't convinced about 343, nor the look of Halo 4. -I have owned all the Halo's in the past, and finished them all on Legendary too. -I was busy playing BF3 and Borderlands 2, and didn't really need a game Result, after playing for around 2 weeks: -Haven't even touched borderlands or BF3 -Finished the campaign on Legendary, and found it to be the most compelling storyline in the Halo industry -Multiplayer is so damn fun, that it makes Reach look bad. Furthermore, the games are balanced, the maps are great, and they all work seamlessly. -Matchmaking is fast -Credit structure...

Does what it's supposed to!

Posted

Pros: FULLY Modular, Gold certified

Cons: None for the time being

This fully modular AX750, is brilliant. It has enough power and is also very efficient (based on other reviewers). I've had no problems with it, despite HW monitor displaying the wrong volts being produced (12v rail was showing up as 7v) There's not much more to say of this PSU, apart from the fact that it powers my GTX 660ti PE OC, with no problems, and the fact that the modular design is GREAT for keeping your case and build super tidy. Here's my unboxing of it:

Kühler for cool - pretty much!

Posted

Pros: Great pump speed, cools like a boss

Cons: Instruction are outdated, Antec fans are noisy, light stays on, stock thermal paste has got little to be desired

The 920 was bought due to me wanting liquid cooling over the conventional fan cooling. I also went for this over the Corsair H series, due to it having non-ribbed pipes. I also have the I7 3770K and was thinking of OC'ing it, so I needed something to cool down that dreaded Ivy Bridge processor. This does the job. Pros: -Software is easy to use, and very simple and intuitive -Lighting the Antec is pretty cool, especially seeing as you can modify the colour of it -Setting your own fan profile is very easy, and truly recommended to do, to match your rig. -The cooler does its job, and at max load, under p95 for over 20hrs, keeps my CPU at around 75-85c - I'm currently OC'ed at 4.5ghz...

Brilliant mouse pad - absolutely top class

Posted

Pros: Smooth, good size, price

Cons: Not actually SLI/Crossfire compatible despite the product description

Yes, there are no cons, but thought that was hilarious when I read it on the product description ! The mouse pad was an impulse buy really, but I'm so glad I bought it. Great pad, smooth and silky and really nice size & finish to it. Not much else to say, apart from - get it, if you need it.

Best media mouse - period.

Posted

Pros: Everything

Cons: Not for left handers

This mouse is super old, but this is the best mouse I've ever used, and when I saw the performance MX out, I went out and bought a second Revolution MX, just because the Performance MX sucked in comparison (when I tried it). This mouse is by far the most comfortable and the most useful mouse (for media controls) I think that exists. Of course there are other mice out there, and possibly better equipped ones, such as gaming mice. but as far as media controls go, and browsing experience. None, in my experience come even remotely close to taking the throne of the Revolution MX. I've had mine for over 2years, and it is still going. Despite me RMA'ing one, due to battery charging problems...

Great hardware, poor software (yet again) from ASUS

Posted

Pros: Look and design, dust covers, ports, thermal armour

Cons: Software package as a whole is a joke, mini included fans (lack of detail by ASUS), HD audio is bad

UPDATE 1st March 2013: http://www.overclock.net/t/1362043/my-experience-with-scan-uk-asus-motherboard-antec-920-rma After having a problem with the board Asus refused the RMA, it renders this 5 year warranty void. I understand Customer Induced Damage (CID) however for a board that's worth £170 I would have expected a little more attention to their customers and more so a better design by the CPU holes. Long story short: If Asus really cared about their products and/or customers they wouldn't designed it this way, nor brought the CID comment upon a high-paying customer. Last time I will ever buy a Asus product in my life. I codename this board the Noob-Tooth Z77. I do find it ironic that...

Super fast, super reliable

Posted

Pros: Speed, size, no-noise, colour

Cons: None

Amazing SSD - I use this as my primary hard drive, and have Win7 64 bit running on it. It is super fast, especially for file transfers. To give you an idea: My PC boots up in around 1 minute (I know it can be faster, but let's be realistic), and what got me most, was how fast Win7 installed on it. Total time from start to finish: 9minutes. Yes 9 minutes to install win 7 64 bit on it. Now for the important part: -The advertised specs are correct, you get around 500-550mb/s read/write. -It is reliable -it is disgustingly fast -I love that red colour ! Overall, great SSD, a HUGE step-up from my old 7200RPM HDD.

Amazing contrast ratio & colours

Posted

Pros: Colours, contrast ratio, inputs, IPS panel

Cons: Changing inputs, stand

I bought this monitor after a lot of research - here's a thread I created on what the different LG IPS screens are: http://www.overclock.net/t/1350203/information-for-lg-ips-screens-ips235v-ips234v-ips224v-m2352d I chose the IPS LED technology over the TN one, due to the better colours and the better viewing angle; although the viewing angle wasn't something that important to me. At first I was worried about the response time of the panel, as websites had misleading information of it. Long story short, after a call to LG, I found out the IPS234V, was the latest IPS panel they had, and it boasted an amazing 5ms response time. This was great, especially considering ASUS's website, and...

Good price for the amount of GBs

Posted

Pros: Price, look, performance

Cons: Reliability, OC'ing

I found these sticks to be very good, until I discovered a faulty one. Things like this happen all the time, but I would have expected it to be a little more sustainable, compared to cheap RAM out there. OC'ing it is quite hard, you'll struggle to get it to CAS 8, with low voltages. Long story short, a great bundle of RAM, but don't expect to OC it, and make sure you test it before playing around with anything else on your system.

Does what it says on the tin!

Posted

Pros: Easy to use, fast, cheap solution

Cons: No instructions for use

This dust filter was suggested to me on the forums of OCUK - it is really a brilliant solution, if you don't want to hassle with screws and whatnot. The application is so simple that I even thought: "it can't be this simple can it? I'm surely doing something wrong aren't I?" In the pack, you'll receive the dust filter, and its accompanied "extra" magnet. -The extra magnet has one side magnet, and the other side adhesive, this is ONLY really needed if the magnet of the dust filter piece doesn't stay on your case (ie. for plastic cases) - thus you would STICK the adhesive to the outside of the case, then magnet-on the filter to the extra magnet piece. -If like me you don't need the...
