MSI Z170A Gaming Pro Carbon LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Board looked nice out of package. Didn't feel lower end.
-Very interesting and creative design with the MSI LEDs.
-Board was able to power up, but that's about it.

Cons: -Can't get the board to go past post...
-Didn't come with a speaker or jumper...

Other Thoughts: Sent in for an RMA Refund, will look an investing in something a lot better. Reviews are pretty bad. They speak it.
This is the first time I've ever used MSI or had to RMA a motherboard...
Still it made the side panel look pretty! Specially with the Gtx 1070's in SLI!

Creative Sound Blaster Zx 116dB PCIe Gaming Sound Card with 600 ohm Headphone Amp and Desktop Audio Control Module
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I did some research before buying this product. Basically I am running a 2013 Astro A40 setup with a 2013 Mix Amp Pro with Optical Out. So what made me really decide to invest was, the mixamp was only getting so much power from on-board audio of my AM3 Fatality Motherboard. I wanted more... Just the boost in power is freaking amazing!!! I didn't really need the 3.5 mm dongle, bot oh wells the price was $10 difference so why not. You have to go through the settings and set it to Dolby digital live. Then go to your audio playback and make sure it is set as creative speakers. The dolby live digital will send a optical out signal. Just I'm hearing thing's I've never heard before using the mixamp with the 600 ohms amp. Google how to setup
Astro A50 with creative sound blaster Zx. Works same for A40s. Enjoy!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Maybe should have got it without the dongle, just the card by itself to save $10.
