I'm holding off on upgrades until release - and that includes monitors, despite the temptation of the U2414H with its tiny bezels. By waiting I should get more performance for my money, and ideally...

Take your time on deciding on sticks. The Warthog is indeed totally amazing, but also requires a set of pedals to work (there is no twist stick), which adds another 150+ on to the bill. Something...

On topic though, I used a red set of Corsair's cables on my AX750 and have been rather happy with the result - though the downside is that they bend a lot less easily than the standard cables. I...

Having played some of Elite, I'm not totally sold on it yet. It feels somewhat more arcade-y, though this may change as they go further through development. Regardless, both can exist at the same...

I didn't have any spare screws left at the end, well, apart from tiny hardware mounting ones that is. As such, you'd really be better spending a few pennies on some new 50/60mm M8 bolts.

Can't hear anything on the video? Think that the pump noise isn't being picked up.

I had a H80 that had a VERY noisy pump, which ended up being replaced by Corsair.

And this is why you don't buy codes off eBay - because they're basically out to scam you. As said, it's likely that the code has already been used.
