Black USB 2.4GHZ Wireless Mouse And Keyboard Set LHZC
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs syncing troubles 08/26/2014

This review is from: Black USB 2.4GHZ Wireless Mouse And Keyboard Set LHZC

Pros: looks cool

Cons: The mouse/keyboard combo did not come with english instructions on how to sync them with a computer. There's no documentation on their official site for syncing, and there is no obvious sync button on either device.

Noctua NH-U12DO A3 for AMD Opteron workstations and Servers CPU Cooler

3 out of 5 eggs perfectly silent 04/15/2013

This review is from: Noctua NH-U12DO A3 for AMD Opteron workstations and Servers CPU Cooler

Pros: very nice, stylish, huge heatsinks. keeps my dual opteron 6272's nice and cool. i love the dual fans to help airflow through the case.

Cons: tricky to assemble, and one of the noctua heatsinks i ordered had a few noticable dents in the top. nothing problematic, but i expected something nicer with the high pricetag. only one of the heatsinks was in view of the clear panel side, so i was able to place the flawless one in view.

ASUS KGPE-D16 SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual Socket G34 AMD SR5690 DDR3 1600/1333/1066/800
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: worked absolutely perfectly out of the box, with plenty of expansion options. usb ports work after reboot (2nd revision board), plenty of ethernet ports, even ps/2 connectors! along with more sata ports than i could dream of using.

Cons: only 2 USB ports. not so much a con, as i needed a usb 3.0 addon card (silverstone) for the usb 3.0 ports on the case anyway, and usb isn't a priority on a server machine anyway.

the pci-e slots were a little bit confusing, but made sense after a while. the asus manual was a great help for showing what ones would be disabled or run at 8x while others were occupied. i did not get a MIO audio card, as it would not fit with the noctua NH-U9DO heatsinks.

Other Thoughts: I'm running this board along with:

dual opteron 6272's
2x 16gb kingston 1600mhz ddr3 ecc memory
silverstone raven case (awesome case!)
silverstone usb3.0 card with front panel connector
nvidia gtx titan
corsair tx750 v2
noctua NH-U9DO heatsinks
and a lone 2TB barracuda drive (for now).
