This review is from: Rosewill RC-USB-PS2-BG 6" USB to Dual PS/2 Adapter Cable/Beige
Cons: Read below
Other Thoughts: Not going to be a moron here and write that it's the adapters fault it doesn't have No-Key Rollover Support, the adapter is doing it's job converting the PS2 to USB, but if you want Full NKRO for gaming you have to have straight PS2 to PS2. I will hold down W and press D and 1 second later if I'm still holding W it will clear its "Stack" and I will stop moving completely in a game. This makes playing WoW Impossible, so I bit the bullet and bought a new mechanical keyboard. Why my brother's MSI Mobo comes with PS2.. and my $250 Sabertooth z87 doesn't is beyond me, but that's a different story. Long live PS2, the superior keyboard connection :(READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fits inside the slot on my motherboard? I don't really know of any pro's for this chip compared to any other.
Cons: I've heard of stable overclocks on this chip reaching 5.0ghz stable, I've sat here many different days and nights for hours at a time after disappointing FPS when I have time trying to get it to run at 4.4ghz stable. Still get blue screened. On. Every. Game. Even in Google Chrome?
Other Thoughts: I bought this chip for my gaming rig, and have been building computers since I was 13 years old. I am 24 now. First chip I ever bought was an AMD 3000+ to match my Radeon 9800Pro and I stuck with AMD since.
I paired this with a Sabertooth Mobo to overclock stable.
I will now use this chip/mobo setup to stream movies and scroll Facebook on my living room TV and I will be buying a new CPU/MOBO setup. I will explain why below.
After all the problems getting my gaming rig to run BF3 last July on Ultra with a GTX570, OCed to only 4.4GhZ.... because its impossible after 4.4GhZ without getting BSoD, games will not start, computer will crash after 4.4ghz. I have never in my life had this problem with a chip. I absolutely have the knowledge to overclock, FBS overclock ETC. Even without FBS I can't pull it above 4.4ghz. To actually have to read a guide on how to overclock THIS chip is a slap in the face. Hey my AMD 6000+ and my AMD 3000+ were both indestructible, overclocked the living **** out of them, I pulled my AMD 6000+ from 3.2ghz to 4.4ghz for 6 years, cooked both of them in an air cooled case, left them both on for weeks at a time, 100 degree weather outside, sun beating down on my PC through the window, but this chip you sold me has to be the most embarrassing attempt at competing with Intel.
My brother's Intel 2770k being 3 years old runs BF3 Ultra, flawlessly. I have to run my AMD 8350 at Medium, to run it flawlessly? How do you expect me to play Titanfall or Battlefield 4 with this? I can't, I can't even play WoW on Ultra with this, and I don't even want to think about attempting newer games.
I stopped playing BF3 because it was not enjoyable playing on Medium Settings, now looking at getting back into BF4, I won't even buy it until I have my new setup. I know I'm complaining alot, but I have done absolutely everything I can to help this chip.
I play WoW, have for 8 years. My AMD 6000+ Dualcore which is 7 years old puts out ~30FPS on Ultra. Why the HELL is this 8350 putting out 45FPS on Ultra with dips as low as 8FPS? I have reinstalled, I have restarted, overclocked, overclocked, overclocked, overclocked literally over a hundred different times, a hundred different settings. The gains are nil. Why is my brothers 2770k putting out ~130FPS on Ultra with dips no lower than 100FPS SAME EXACT 570, being 3 years older than MY CURRENT CHIP?
I recently viewed over forums about Low FPS issues, and video card bottlenecking issues while gaming with this chip. I came to the conclusion that is IS the chip. And in order to upgrade my 570 to an 870 this year, I have to buy a completely new setup after less than a year of use. I generally have a build for 3-5+ years only because of overclocking, but again, this is a slap in the face.
Beyond angry with blowing $520 on this Chip and a Sabertooth when I could have spent $100 more and bought an Intel 4770k.
I do not care what the benchmarks say, read the forums.
