    Logitech G602 Review

    So let me set the stage for this review. As many people who knew me when I was a regular on the forums over 2 years ago, I personally used to game on a old Microsoft mouse that looked just like one of these archaic things you find on your grandmothers PC. Now I didn't use it because I couldn't afford anything better, at the time I had 2 R9 290X's and just didn't see any gain to replace something that worked great and I was familiar with. As time went on I stopped gaming and sold off most of my performance hardware and kept my PC relatively basic and bare bones. I haven't actually used it within the last half a year since I can accomplish everything I need on my phone. Now I moved out a month ago and when packing up my PC realized one of my little siblings had taken my beloved mouse, now 1 month later and starting school and having an assignment I need to work on this weekend. I have finally been forced to break out Old Reliable and that means I was tasked with finding a replacement for my beloved ancient mouse. I made a simple trip to my local Memory Express and examining the selection was disappointed with what the cheaper options had in regards to size for my Goliath sized hands. I also don't appreciate the general look and feel of normal gaming mice with their jagged angles and flashing lights so I wasn't left with many choices. The G602 caught my eye with its sleek styling, versatility and I recalled hearing it was a great mouse for those with large hands but the 119$ price tag deterred me initially. I decided to quickly check PC parts picker and happily discovered the G602 on amazon for just over 66$ and using MemX's Uber Price beat guarantee happily purchased one for 60$. Using it has truly changed my opinion of what some "gaming" mice have to offer. I've already fallen in love with the adjustable DPI and programmed my own macro keys for the 6 perfectly placed side buttons. This mouse is perfection for those with large hands who want a versatile yet elegant solution that is a cut above your standard office/school mouse. It has been such a pleasure to switch to something like this that I personally felt the need to share it after not posting on the forums for over 2 years.

    My first build [help?]

    It's the same motherboard you would need for the 6500k

    Best Custom Water Cooling System around $150

    What's wrong with a good air cooler?

    PSU bad?

    It's not good, but it works
  6. Bro I have bought a fair share of used motherboards, a lot of the time they have little hidden quirks the previous owner never talks about.
  7. 99.9% of the time it's a problem with your motherboard, maybe the ram, but most likely a board.

    Your Perfect Phone

    Basically my Nexus 6 with a better camera, expandable storage, little better battery, a little bit beefier at taking bumps and bangs, and a inferred camera like that concept by Catipilar. Edit: Oh and waterproof to the point of being able to survive summered in a 55 gallon drum oh used engine oil until it can be emptied fully and retrieved.

    Look at this OVERPRICED SHIT

    Yea that's the price in Canadian pesos
  10. It's better for work station uses, a 6700K is better for gaming.
  11. As much as people who play Minecraft claim, they are actually wrong ram speed literally effects nothing.

    Gaming 7.1 Virtual Surround USB Headset for 70€ or less

    I'm going to tell you that a 7.1 headset will not have 40mm drivers
  13. I could see a PC surviving that, but how the heck are you planning to cope with that kind of temps. Heat stroke anyone?

    Best <100$ USD AIO Cooler

    A air cooler in that price bracket with perform the same if not better then a AIO comparable in price. A air cooler will last longer and is much less likely to fail and if it does fail the chances of a catastrophic failure are nothing compared to a AIO. And yea it's less noisy.

    i7 4770k vs i7 6700

    Why on earth would you spend that much money on something that is literally the same with a little better TIM?
