cord was so cheaply made that it shorted within the first two weeks of ownership. This mouse only had to last me a couple weeks until i could get a decent gaming mouse again(as my old one's scroll wheel died after some years of service) and it couldn't even do that.
So i'm back to using my old mouse that can't scroll (but otherwise works fine).
The Logitech b100 is so poorly made that it's very easy to move it faster than it can track, which is a real pain for anything but office-work, even then I wouldn't bother getting this mouse for that, given the obvious quality issues.
Other Thoughts: if i want to scroll that bad i suppose i cut, and re-soldier the usb wire, but just because I can doesn't mean I should have to. Nor is it worth returning or doing an RMA on. Chucking it in the round-file.
Logitech used to be my go-to brand for peripherals, but- i think I'll have to give them up after this experience combined with a few other bad experiences i've had recently.
Pros: It keeps my 1100T (@4.014ghz) running a cool 21-25c idle and 30-35c under heavy load (max temp i've seen is 37c under sustained full load) and looks sexy while doing it.
Cons: The included fan is loud (bearings whine) on full speed, which is a bit worrisome- thankfully this can be adjusted quite easily so as not to be a noisy distraction.
documentation could be a bit better (some info slightly out of order)
Other Thoughts: well worth the purchase, just measure first to make sure it fits in your chassisREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: With up to 32 gigs of RAM, Bulldozer Support, and a slew of features one could only wish were common-place, this is the board to get for any high-end AMD Build.
Ability to disable ROG port at the flip of a switch
Onboard molex connector for rear chassis fan
Plenty of USB ports
Extremely easy to work with
And that's only naming a few!
Cons: the UFEI Bios is not my cup of tea, but it's nothing worth taking an egg off for. In truth it's a nice step forward in the right direction, I'm just not used to it. The only real con to this motherboard is the Q-connector; and while it's an absolutely wonderful idea, it just doesn't grip the header pins well enough and can get jostled loose fairly easily. Don't use it (it's not required) if you plan on moving your tower frequently.
Other Thoughts: The one-sided clips for the RAM have not been a problem, and after a month I still have yet to see any thermal issues at all, even with the north-bridge which seems to have none of the problems associated with The Crosshair IV.READ FULL REVIEW
