This review is from: EVGA Z68 SLI 130-SB-E685-KR LGA 1155 Intel Z68 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Intel Motherboard
Pros: Bought: 3 / 22 / 2012
And still running strong!
OC'd my CPU without issues, also running OC'd SLI video cards and 1600mhz XMP profile ram without issues. I've had absolutely no issues with this MoBo as others have stated.
I've used 2 separate PSUs on this board as well as 2 different brands of RAM. I've also been through several different HDD swap outs and they've all worked fine. Same with Video cards..
I will not count EVGA out and would gladly buy another.
Other Thoughts: As of this posting I'm running:
i5 2500k @ 4.6ghz 24/7
CM Hyper 212+ CPU cooler
Corsair HX850 PSU
2x EVGA 780ti SC ACX GPUs in SLI (sometimes put a 670 in for PhysX Dedi when ruinning benchmarks I also OC these cards regularly when benching as well)
12GB G.Skill Ripjaws X Series (F3-12800CL8D-4GBXM & F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM)
2TB Seagate HDD and a 750GB WD Black HDD
Creative Sound Blaster Z series soundcard
I have run different size WD and Seagate HDDs in this drive at other times and regularly swap them out. I have also used a higher latency Corsair Ram 16GB (2x 8GB sticks). I have used a Nvidia 460gtx, a 570gtx, 2 670 gtx in SLI, and now 2 780ti's in SLI... I Have also had an Antec Neo Eco 620c PSU in here before the Corsair HX850 was installed. And have NEVER had any issues with any of this. The people saying this board is Hardware Specific, I am really not so sure about that. Was I just extremely lucky, or could they be doing something wrong perhaps? I'm not sure. But this was and is my experience with this MoBo.
I'm going to be bulding a new personal gaming PC when/if the Intel Broadwell CPU releases, and am seriously considering going with another EVGA board. I will definitely be going with a higher end product as I am feeling the need to build a top of the line system this time around, instead of a high performance budget build.
And for the record, I've been building computers since about 1997. More specifically, gaming computers. I've also put this board in several other builds and those have not had any issues either.
This review is from: LOGITECH G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse
Pros: Everything. This sensor feels amazing. Mouse is Logitech built. Anyone who has owned a Logitech gaming mouse knows the build quality is second to none.
Cons: Mouse wheel would be so much better if it were Rubber.
Other Thoughts: To the guy who isn't even a Verified Owner and gave this Product One Egg..... If your mouse, ANY mouse clicks from setting it down (dropping on movement), you should know you got a faulty product. And need to return it. This mouse Does NOT right click every time you pick it up and drop it. I even just tested this by slamming it down pretty hard, no click at all. This mouse is very well made.
I have been competitive gaming for years and am hardcore about it. This is by far the best FPS mouse I've used and I've been through several over the years. If you are leery about this mouse, I suggest you go to a store that has a Demo version set out to try. You will not be disappointed, best sensor out...
This review is from: CM Storm Sirus S - True 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset with In-line Remote
Pros: Great sound when they worked properly (must have a good sound card with Headset amp to fully enjoy these). Extremely comfortable.
Cons: (I bought these Feb. 28, 2013 and it is now March 15, 2014.)
This headset is now failing. I use this headset paired with a Sound Blaster Z, which was amazing in the beginning. But now it seems the Front Left speaker is almost dead. Seems to be shorting as sometimes it works and sometimes is does not. When it does work, it sounds awful. All other speakers are working fine for the moment.
Also the coating these headsets have over the outer plastic ear covers started bubbling and is now peeling off.
This headset has always been taken care of, never misused. And within 2 weeks time frame the coating started to bubble and a speaker went out. Right at a years time of ownership. I am disappointed to say the least. Thought these might actually last a lot longer.
Took 2 eggs off since I have 2 issues with them.
Other Thoughts: Wish these would of actually lasted, as I really enjoyed them while they did work. The inline volume control wasn't great, but everything else was really nice. Especially the comfort and sound.
Now I'm stuck gaming with a cheap pair of Wally-World bought headphones, because I gave away my old Plantronics Gamecom, until CM finally gets back to me and replaces these or I just bite the bullet and go buy another brand.
