Corsair  MM600  CH-9000084-WW  Double-Sided Gaming Mouse Mat
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

4 out of 5 eggs Nice Mouse Pad 01/21/2015

This review is from: Corsair MM600 CH-9000084-WW Double-Sided Gaming Mouse Mat

Pros: This is made from a sheet of aluminum and is very sturdy. The rubber corners are very low profile and keep the pad from moving. The pad has 2 different textures making it adaptable to different needs. It is also about the same size as my laptop so it will fit in well for my laptop case. It is big enough so if you put stuff on it you will still have plenty of room to move your mouse. Mouse movement is great with no lag and no drifting when not being used. This can easily be used in your lap if you want to use on your couch.

Cons: Price is a bit high for something companies used to give away for free.
Possibility of surface wearing out over time as it looks to be just a textured decal.

Other Thoughts: This is a great mouse pad with two different surfaces. The price is a bit on the high side for what it is but it works

CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB (4 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4-19200) C14 Memory Kit - Black Model CMK16GX4M4A2400C14
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This is my first use and review of ddr4 memory so i am looking forward to it. The first thing I noticed is the heat spreaders, they are very low. these will fit any system this way. If you want to use extra wide cpu coolers these will not get in the way. The second thing i noticed is they are made of aluminum and corsair brags about faster cooling because of it, but copper has always been a better heat sink. Just look at any pc water cooled systems, they are mainly copper or coated copper because of it supierior heat transfer capabilities.Also googling heat transfer you will find copper is much better. another thing I look forward to is the limited lifetime warranty Corsair gives on these. I also like the lower voltage these run at. Remember the lower the voltage the less heat we need to get rid of. These run at 1.2 volts.
Onto the testing, I didn't have a x99 board so i had to use a friends system. I removed his ram and installed mine and entered the bios. You will notice that it auto configs and gives you the choice to overclock with preset values. I left it at stock values and proceeded to the test. I ran prime95 for 4 hours and the ram passed with no errors.
I then went back into the bios and ran it at the preset overclocked speed that showed up. I ran Prime95 again this time for just 2 hours after I played a couple of games that were installed on the system. The games were all rock solid so I didn't want to overstay my welcome. After the 2 hours prime95 showed zero errors.

Cons: Price for DDR4 in my opinion is way too high
no noticeable system speed improvements

Other Thoughts: I am impressed at the easy overclocking but set back on the high price. If I was building a new system that required DDR4 I will buy these but because of the price I will not be upgrading my board until 16gb sticks are available and the price drops a bit.

Intel 7260HMW IEEE 802.11AC, dual-band, 2x2 Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth 4.0 Mini PCI Express combo Adapter - 867 Mbps+300Mbps - Internal
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: this worked great in my older gateway m1624 with an extender bracket I found on e__y. I am running windows 7 64bit. the drivers I got directly from Intel. installation was easy using original antennas.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: anybody with a slow connection should take a chance and try this update! note that some laptops don't allow non factory upgrades, like red flagging. Also my gateway would not boot with my old Wi-Fi card and this one at the same time so remove the old one if you have problems. Download drivers before installing
