5 out of 5 eggs Excellent X99 Motherboard! 05/16/2016

This review is from: MSI X99A MPOWER LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: -Very easy to overclock my i7 5820k at 4.7Ghz in 1.295V
-I love black and yellow sceme
-Standard LGA 2011-V3 CPU Socket
-Clear CMOS Reset button near I/O shield in case after improper overclocking via UEFI BIOS
-Very easy to enable XMP to overclock memory to 2666Mhz G.Skills DDR4 SDRAM
-Extremely easy to overclock (though requires some trial & error to get the correct amount of voltage for VCore, System Agent, Input/Output, etc.)

Cons: -I wish there's two M.2 slots in case if I want to install two Samsung 950 Pro NVMe M.2 SSDs
-U.2 adapters and connectors would've been nice for an option to install U.2 NVMe SSDs
-Need more 3-Pin DC and 4-Pin PWM connectors to install more CPU fans and System Fans to keep system cool, otherwise I have to buy 3-Pin DC Y Cable adapter and/or 4-Pin PWM Y-Cable adapter
-Give us an option to reduce POST delay in the UEFI BIOS

Other Thoughts: I am extremely with this motherboard and I recently bought ASUS X99-A Motherboard which lasted for 10 months. Subsequently, my system was struggling overclocking while gaming and watching movies at the same time and ended up BSOD, and won't POST. So I contacted ASUS warranty department to give me replacement, and tried four times; however, things didn't work out very well. First, system still won't POST, second, motherboard keeps resetting the BIOS when every time I turn on the computer, third, system kept crashing, and scary news for the fourth one is that they gave me motherboard with couple of bent pins on LGA CPU socket which is absolutely unacceptable! So therefore, I returned it and had no choice but to buy this MSI X99A Mpower motherboard to stop wasting time going through technician and then escalate the case to the supervisor. Yes, they can only give me refurbished motherboard for replacement but this is unacceptable to receive the motherboard with bent pins, otherwise my CPU would be potentially damaged. Not to mention, all ASUS X99 motherboard uses custom OC socket patent pending which they simply add couple of pins to prevent dropping a lot of voltage as well as overclocking the memory in low voltage and manually adjust CPU cache ratio, but the problem is that my i7 5820k ran so hot and I was forced to run 4.5Ghz in 1.35V which runs about 92 degrees max whereas on MSI X99A Mpower motherboard can easily run 4.6Ghz in 1.42V which is about 80-82 degrees celsius, and as a result, MSI motherboard was working rock solid! So I highly recommend buyers to invest MSI motherboard, but do NOT buy new motherboards from ASUS because I think they mainly focus on aesthetics, but don't heavily focus more on quality control which is extremely crucial to all loyal customers! All in all, I am extremely happy with this motherboard after living without a computer for 3 months straight!

Pros: -Programmable G-keys
-Custom 8-bit color LED design
-Microphone included
-Blue is awesome!

Cons: -Creates noticeable static noises, even when sound card is plugged in.
-Volume gets distorted when raising left and right audio channel
-Very expensive!
-Headset tends to slip or fall off when head's wobbled or tilted

Other Thoughts: -I don't recommend G633 headset since many people claimed that G633 has very poor design, ergonomics, and quality control. Yet somehow, I don't have any issue with cheap Logitech G230 Stereo Headset and it's even plugged in with ASUS Xonar DX Sound Card. So I am not very impressed with Logitech G633 headset and I strongly recommend to go with Stereo headset to avoid audio distortion and plus you want to have good audio mix with mids and highs as best as possible to enjoy music, gaming, and watching videos.

2 out of 5 eggs Hard Mouse Pad causes physical pain! 02/09/2016

This review is from: Logitech G440 (943-000049) Hard Gaming Mouse Pad

Pros: -Easy to glide
-Nice Logo
-Smooth texture
-Easy to wash/clean

Cons: -Mousepad itself is hard and rough!
-It hurts my wrist after gaming about few minutes
-Mouse tends to glide/slide often which is bad for my accuracy

Other Thoughts: -Cloth mouse is strongly recommended since you can roll or bend and feels very comfortable, and doesn't occasionally cause fatigue, regardless how many hours you play games. I have own G502 Mouse and G230 Mouse, and works fantastically fine when playing games over 8 hours per day. Even though advertisements claim that it requires higher dpi mouse to play with hard surface mouse pad, you don't have to use hard mouse pad. Cloth mouse pad, on the other hand, is absolutely fine plus it's cheaper, softer, and smoother which the majority of gamers prefer cloth over hard mouse pad. Overall, G440 hard mouse pad is not recommended in terms of ergonomics and physical health.
