Pros: This board is absolutely sexy and very easy to configure. It performed all of the tasks I threw at it, except for one crucial flaw...
Cons: DIMM1 and DIMM2 RAM sockets refused to work and placing any RAM module in either socket rendered the motherboard unable to post. It was discovered that this was the result of a bent pin on the CPU socket, which, as someone who has built many PCs before, I have to honestly say has never been an issue for me before. After discovering the MSI support board, it was easy to conclude that I am far from the only person who has had this issue with this board, which is a shame because it is an absolute beast if you're lucky enough to install your CPU without bending one of the pins, or, receiving a board that isn't already pre-bent.
Other Thoughts: Come on, MSI. You can do better than this... :(READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm CAPTAIN 240 CPU Liquid Cooler AIO Water Cooling Ceramic Bearing Pump Visual Liquid Flow with Dual 120mm FDB PWM Fan Rubber Coating Deep Silent Support LGA 2011-v3
Pros: It cools my PC, is rather quiet, and was easy to mount to my case. Setup was pretty painless compared to early liquid cooling setups.
Cons: Unfortunately, the plastic structure surrounding the portion of the unit that is placed over your CPU socket is of atrociously low quality. As mentioned by another reviewer, I only had to tighten the screws around the plastic bracket very gently by hand in order to break off one of the arms. I might consider gluing it back on at some point, but honestly it's probably not worth bothering as so many other reviewers report this unit's pump failing after less than a year of use. As someone who uses his computer very often, and very hard, I fully expect mine to fail in at least 8 months, in which case I will probably slap on a decent fan and call it a day.
Other Thoughts: I will be seriously hesitant to try a DEEPCOOL product in the future, having taken a chance on this one despite the mediocre review score.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Hamilton Beach 67650 Big Mouth Pro Juice Extractor
Pros: It worked the first time.
Cons: After the second use, the strainer device no longer sticks in place even when it feels 'firmly' fixed to the unit's base. Upon placing the bowl and the strainer in place and fastening the straps, as soon as I power the device the strainer comes loose making an incredible racket (significantly louder than when it works normally, which sounds like a Boeing 757 taking off), and is entirely unusable because it cannot collect juice while the strainer is skating around on top of the base/motor.
I made a dozen attempts to fix the issue, tried to see if I suddenly was doing something wrong after one flawless use, but no, according to the manual I am doing everything correctly and everything appears correct up until the point I flip the on switch. I used to like Hamilton Beach products but this has turned me off in an instant. As someone who is new to juicing and new to eating healthy, this is an immediate turn off to the whole idea when an investment of this coinage turns out to be nothing but ANOTHER headache and RMA to Newegg. Yes, I've been RMAing a lot lately - Newegg, you need some different suppliers.
Other Thoughts: It could come with a net/capture to place over the juice cup so that I could drink this without a load of foam. The foam really cuts down on the enjoyment factor, especially when 1/3rd of your drink is a foamy garden.READ FULL REVIEW
