ASRock Z97 Extreme3 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

1 out of 5 eggs worked great! For 2 weeks... 08/14/2015

This review is from: ASRock Z97 Extreme3 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Everything posted and was great for the first week. Bought it for a windows 10 upgrade.

Cons: I left for a week and came back to find it dead. Computer wouldn't boot at all. Checked PSU using green wire trick, worked fine. Still wouldn't power up. Time for RMA process. Yay for being out extra money on shipping.

Next time I'll believe reviews and not the sales.

Other Thoughts: Now I'm actually home and get to stare at a dead screen and a gutted PC. Yay.

5 out of 5 eggs Cheap and a Good Performer 02/17/2014

This review is from: Tt eSPORTS KB-KNK008US KNUCKER Plunger Keyboard

Pros: Simple design/layout
+ I like the banded USB cords for giggles

Cons: Handrest could be a bit cushier, but whatever works. I've not had any real issues with it during extended sessions.

Other Thoughts: Bought it to replace a wireless keyboard that was starting to have issues with responsiveness. This has been a large improvement in responsiveness, cheap, and does exactly what I need it to do.

PowerColor PCS+ Radeon R9 270X DirectX 11.2 AXR9 270X 2GBD5-PPDHE 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: * Cheaper than Nvidia for similar performance (close to GTX760)
* Got it on sale
* Runs BF4 on High at 60 FPS+

Cons: * None so far, runs really well

Other Thoughts: I got BF4 and tried to run it on my 3.5 year old rig. I could run it alright on Low settings, but any higher was less than 10 FPS. It was okay for a while, but would occasionally stutter down in FPS in some heavier fights. So I started researching a card that could stretch the life of my system.

Originally I wanted to stay with an nvidia card, but kept seeing the new R9 cards running so close and cheaper than the nvidia cards.
The 270X was running neck and neck with the GTX760 and was a good $50-70 cheaper. Eventually that sealed it.

If you're looking for a good midrange card that can run all the modern games well, this is a great choice.
