This review is from: MSI Z97-Gaming 3 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Absolutely nothing.
Cons: I purchased this motherboard for a new build. I bought it and installed everything on the board. I fired it up and everything went smooth for a few hours. I turned it off, came back later and was going to start installing programs and things on it. I turned it on and smoke came from the inside of my case. I quickly pulled the power cord from the power supply. One of the voltage regulator modules for the processor melted and ruined the brand new i5 4690k that I installed on the board. I bought another board, an Asus, and installed the i5 4690k onto it and it would not post. I returned the processor and exchanged it for another one. All is well now. DO NOT BUY THIS MOTHERBOARD!!!!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Newegg. They handled my RMA within a week. The lady who I talked to on the phone to issue my RMA was extremely nice and very courteous. Newegg has the best customer service around.
Cons: The laptop that I recieved worked well for the few days that it did work. After several days of playing some games on it, the mouse stopped working. The screen would flicker when set to a certain display brightness. And the plastic bezel around the keyboard started to peel up around the escape key. When it was working, it would get too hot for my comfort. While playing skyrim on 1080p with ultra settings, it would get up to almost 90 degrees celsius. That has got to shorten the life of the system with the temperature being that high. I returned the laptop and recieved a refund in around a week. Ill say again that Newegg's customer service is awesome. Thats the only reason I gave this review 3 eggs.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I purchased a dell 660s recently and wanted to purchase a dedicated gpu for it. I didn't have too many choices since the psu is limited at 220 watts. I read a lot of reviews before committing to the sapphire lp 7750. I've had it installed and running for 2 weeks and have not had a single problem with it. I've ran fallout new Vegas, crysis 3, and dishonored without any problems at 1600x900. If your worried that your psu isn't enough, I know that if it's at least 220 watts you will be fine. While playing crysis 3 at 1600x900 and everything set on medium it never gets above 65 degrees celsius. Awesome card!
Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
