    Remember, with great power comes great current squared times resistance.

    I'll post a few as soon as it's in my hot hands... Kyle said he'd ship it as soon as he gets it. I trust the old timer. ;)

    HOLY SHIT... CORSAIR AND KYLE CAME THROUGH

    It's taken some time and a few messages, but goddamn. First off, this isn't the numbered power supply that was talked about earlier, but Corsair went way over and above making this more than right over these months. Check it out.

    RM1000i Special Edition — 1000 Watt 80 PLUS Gold Certified Fully Modular PSU

    Dominator Platinum Special Edition 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz Chrome (CMD32GX4M2C3200C14C)

    Force Series MP500 480GB M.2 NVMe SSD

    VOID Wireless Dolby 7.1 RGB Gaming Headset — Special Edition Yellowjacket

    Thanks to Corsair and the [H] for everything. I am truly grateful. These will be used... [H]ard IMG_20170326_200725.jpg IMG_20170326_200958.jpg IMG_20170326_201016.jpg IMG_20170326_201519.jpg IMG_20170326_202043.jpg .

    The DDR, NVMe, and the headset is already being used... The P/S will be put into the next beast I build. My girl is jealous of my gaming and wants to get off the Xbox. Finally able to dual GPU.

    That's awesome! Corsair and [H] really hooked you up. Much better than the original prize. :) Corsair is by far my favorite PC component vendor.

    I hope this means overclocking that headset. Somehow. Someway. This should be a thing.

    "I can walk all the way out to the mailbox and they stay connected!!" YEEESSSSSSSSS.

    The Corsair Void Wireless is an amazing piece of kit. The battery lasts for at least 3-4 multi-hour gaming sessions before needing a charge if you don't use the lights. The range is really good too, I can walk down the hallway and use the restroom with them still connected (after muting the microphone of course. :p).

    One of the biggest complaints is the microphone is quiet. It's actually very good, people aren't moving the microphone closer to their mouth. The boom mic is flexible and rubbery, however you can bend it past a certain point and it will stay put.

    Why mute? Share the love!

    I do a shitload of podcasting... The mic on the headset is pretty damn clear in audacity. If I needed to record something on the fly, I wouldn't hesitate to use it... If my Heil PR40 (or Shure SM58) wasn't around...

    Damn DUDE, if Corsair would have seen that lime green case before they sent you loot, they probably would have thrown in a case just to make sure those new components had a good home!
    Congrats.
