This review is from: MSI P67A-GD55 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: The build quality and accessories look good
Cons: #1 :It's dead after 1.5 months usage.
#2: it has issue when it was working.
-It's so hard to get in BIOS (this isn't a problem with the my returned B2 same GD55), I have to keep pressing del key to enter BIOS........but if I did that, once I got in BIOS, it's BUGGY, the little windows will pop up to ask me if I want the auto opmizie setting or not.
It's not fun because no matter how many times I pressed esc or NO, it still pop up !!!!!!!!!!This is serisouly *************
How could I solve it? well, I have to time it, press any other option before the next little windows pop up...
This issue is okay, as long as this MB works....FIne.
#3 Okay, whenever my system stucks due to GPU failed, I have to reboot it by resetting...*** headache again, because windows will ask you if u want to enter repair mode or normally enter windows 7........
The KEYBOARD won't WORK!!!......so I have to wait 30s to auto enter.
I'm not sure if this is one of BIOS option, but it's not an issue
Other Thoughts: Continue...
with my old B2 GD55.
#4 my old B2 GD55 (returned ), the audio output port was DEAD!!!!!.........:(((((((((((( only 1 month and it was dead. I had to use the front panel's audio port.
Serisouly, for such buggy MB......I wanna cry hard. I'm not a guy love to move my 30lbs computer case everyday , unscrew and unpull everything in order to pull the MB out for RMA.
I know MSI will exchange this MB........but, it's a headache to do everything agian and again...
The MSI MB gives me:
Pain, headache, wasted load of time, unreliable, unfriendly.
I'm going to RMA this one and order an ASUS MB .
If anyone interestting in this MB, i will sell it for $80.....
I'm typing these by my 3 years old ASUS X48 build, ^^, my ASUS MB rocks........
This review is from: Thermaltake CLP0574 120mm Jing CPU Cooler
Pros: Expensive, give you an option to you spend your extra money on it
Cons: Not quiet, even it only has 1 fan ran at all. I also minmize the speed of fan.
If you turn both fans on, it runs louder because the noise from airflow.
Performance isn't good.
My 2500k stays at 43+ C at stock speed with 1 fan on( lowest speed).
load is about 61-67C, depends on the task.
Sorry, I really expect more for a $65 CPU fan (before MIR)
Other Thoughts: I bought this one to replace XIGMETEK Dark Knight due to that one runs loud with stock fan.
After I tried both of them, the XIGMETEK beat this "Jing" hard in term of heat transfer.
THe XIGMETEK Dark Knight has much better transfer rate compare to this JING.
I measure it by both run without any fans.
The Dark Knight has 10 degree lower in first 10 mins.
It's siginficant number to ask Thermaltek engineers work harder.
the other way to compare it is more simple,
Just touch the heatsink after u shut your computer down, the Dark Knight is much warmer compare to "Jing" which is a little warm
Anyway, it's up to your choice.
MB: P67 GD55
Cons: I'm not sure the MB issue or the memory issue.
It only runs stable at 1333Mhz Even I manually set all voltage & timing, it won't boot at 1866 Mhz.
It can boot in at 1600 Mhz but the MB will reset every times if the system is fresh start up.
Overall, I think it's MB's issue. But MSI claim it's chipest or intel's issue.
I sent a titcket to Corsair for 2 business day now, no reponse yet. Kinda slow in my opinion.
I have been deal with other brands before, they used to reply in 1-2 business days.
Other Thoughts: My CPU is 2500k
MB is MSI P67 GD55.
PSU is 650W from OCZ
Asus GTX 460
Not a happy custmor, since I paid premium price but don't run at premium speed..
Should just buy those cheap 1333Mhz set
