Pros: Handles everything no problem, achieved a score of 11442 on 3D Mark.
Looks beastly, just holding it gives you a sense of what you are about to experience.
Remains cool even under heavy load, maxes around 45c
Cons: Makes an incredibly annoying whine from the capacitors when not in use, like internet browsing. Worse for me because my case's design doesn't insulate sound well.
Powerjack, need I say more.
Other Thoughts: The powerjack isn't necessary but when you pay for this much the least they can do is throw in a quality piece of garbage you won't use.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Keyboard - Retail
Pros: Nice feeling and looking keyboard, I like the back lighting and bottom grip texture.
Media controls and keyboard profiles are great.
Cons: The sound buttons were a little broken at first, I had to unplug my board and plug it back in after every start up for them to work. Eventually that worked itself out, not sure how.
The macro keys are easy to program but painfully slow to execute. Several seconds pause between each key stroke, which makes it useless for quickly doing a laborious task that requires repetition of the same keys. The main reason I wanted macro keys.
Other Thoughts: I like it but the macros are only useful if you are into MMO's and maybe not even then.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looks good, runs good
Several fan plugs
Nice OC ability for RAM
Cons: The RAM slots are a little strange, there is only 1 release the bottom side is fixed. This makes putting the RAM in feel like it is scraping or going in wrong, at least to me.
The SupremeFX is a little overblown, overall I can't tell a difference.
Other Thoughts: Limited aftermarket coolers available atm, The Corsair H50 can be rigged to work with the 1366 slotting I believe. (1 of the 3 options works)
There are better boards for the money.
