MSI MSI Gaming Z170A XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM EDITION LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Read Other

Cons: Read Other

Other Thoughts: I do not own this board personally, but I wish I did. The reason I'm writing this is because MSI apparently doesn't have the time to let this person below me know about why there is an extra 4pin eps connector on the board.

As this board is aptly named....."XPOWER TITANIUM"....It's an overclocking board on crack. The extra 4pin eps connector is for overclocking the cpu, but you can't just leave it unplugged because you weren't prepared and didn't proceed with due diligence before purchasing.As any board with extra power outlets installed, some come with 4 pin pci, 4pin molex, sata power, etc. You need to read and make sure that you have the required cables to support this board. The person who first reviewed this obviously didn't look into the extra connector and as such has gotten nothing but issues.

MSI you are an awesome company and I own many of your products, but the automated responses to customers for good or bad ratings is nuts. Please write yourselves to these customers. If they are blank in the brain, not giving them a proper explanation doesn't help them, it only makes it worse. Give them the information with your reply, not some dumb phone number that takes them to someone in "tech support" who barely speaks English half the time and probably doesn't know anything about the board or products except what they read from the prompts they have in front of them.

For anyone who may purchase this and read this. PLEASE I BEG OF YOU. Research first, purchase, fix any issues that you know aren't the boards fault. If you have legit issues, posting here will let us know, but don't get caught with your pants down because you didn't use your head.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: As previous statements 16gb 2400 ram for less than $110 is insane. If I had more money I would've bought two sets of this ram.

Cons: I had to remove an egg due to the shipping practices of the ram itself. The box it comes in is really nice, but there is no padding in the box to keep the ram from bouncing around inside. Even for the price I want to ensure the ram I'm receiving comes in the best shape possible.

Other Thoughts: Other than that gripe I'm perfectly happy with my purchase and I plan to purchase another set. I'm going for a white out build and I want to see if by chance one of the vga companies will make a whiteout card. I know Galax makes white cards, but I'm not into their price gouging.

ASUS VX238H-W White 23
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Absolutely beautiful. I love the performance, size, color, just everything. The connectivity options are awesome.

Cons: Not Vesa mountable which really blows. I totally forgot to check whether I could mount these, bu tI don't plan to return them just for that.

This has nothing to do with the monitor, but it does kinda suck that you can't daisy chain hdmi ports like display ports.

Other Thoughts: I plan to get one more and make a surround setup for my games once I get a better gpu to go along with them.
