This review is from: Corsair Raptor M40 Black 7 1 x Wheel USB Optical 4000 dpi Gaming Mouse
Pros: Looks nice, doesnt have a million buttons.
Cons: I dont have the world's biggest hands but this mouse felt to small. The side thumb area is made out of noticably cheap plastic. The sensitivity is CRAZY high and it took me almost an hour or two to zero it in, BUT, it felt like you had to your sensitivity every time you switched to a different game.
Other Thoughts: I even DL'ed the software for the mouse but it just seemed liked such a hastle to setup - i returned this item after 1 day. Love Corsair products, i have their keyboard, mousepad, memory, CPU cooler, but this mouse was a dud.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: great board. Fairly quiet for a mechanical board, lights up great.
Cons: Bit expensive for a keyboard - still worth it if you have the cash though.READ FULL REVIEW

- i purchased this board because it is spec'ed to be able to do use DDR3 1866 Mhz ram without being overclocked. I went out of my way and spent $100 more for vendor approved ram off of the mobos website (Corsair Dominator 32 gb 1866). When i booted the system, ram defaulted at 1333 which is fine. Then i changed the bios settings to XMP mode with 1866. It ran fine for the first 31 days but then the machine started to restart randomly during bootup and in windows (nothing was overclocked). After countless days of testing and speaking with asus tech support (who were very helpful), i eventually decided that i was wasting to much time trying to figure out the issue. I dropped it off at a local service spot and after extensive tests they determined it was a bad board. Of course it is 2 days over new eggs return policy so now i have a dead board and waiting for the new one to be RMA'ed to me. I will update this review once i get it.
- Also, this mobo's onboard audio drivers (realtek hd audio) caused my windows media player library to go haywire and delete and reload constantly.
Other Thoughts: This is my second asus board (i loved my first one - it ran great!), and i typically love asus products. But to be honest, i was planning on buying an ASUS Titan video card and now i am having second thoughts. I hope the ASUS team can RMA my product quickly (even though they ship ground!) so i can get back online asap.READ FULL REVIEW
