This review is from: Citizen Eco-Drive World Perpetual AT Mens Watch CB0020-09E
Pros: Very readable dial, extremely accurate, easy to set the timezone and check operating status. Simple, elegant good looks IMO.
Cons: No display of day of week.
Other Thoughts: I've been waiting for years to buy a watch that had the low-maintenance qualities of my Casio Tough Solar Waveceptor in a more attractive package. This is it. I didn't need the complicated subdials that most of Citizen's earlier radio-controlled watches had.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock X58 Extreme 3 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Feature-laden, very good layout, excellent price. Has the double-spaced 16x PCI-E slots I need for my two passively-cooled 5750's in CrossfireX. Double set of CPU cooler mounting holes, so my old LGA775 waterblock still works. Nice, non-flashy color scheme.
Cons: The tall MOSFET(?) micro-fan+heatsink might interfere with a very wide CPU cooler or one using a fan on that side (toward the rear of the case).
Other Thoughts: The Extreme3 mobo booted first time (using i7-930, 6GB G.Skill F3-12800CL7T-6GBPI memory). Everything appears to work OK. The significant number of problem reviews I saw for the non-3 Asrock X58 Extreme gave me a little concern, but I still have my old C2Q mobo if I have to RMA this one.
The audio driver on the Asrock website didn't install correctly for me, but the one on the included driver disk worked fine.
I'll leave it stock for a few days, then gradually begin OC'ing, We shall see...
