GIGABYTE GA-X99-UD5 WIFI LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Upon receiving I had to order a CPU along with DDR4 to actually fire this bad boy up!

Booted on first attempt, bios read all my connected devices. I've read a lot of bad reviews in regards of the bios and I personally HAVE NOT found an issue or encountered one. I am on the bios that the board shipped with (F7) and will only update if I soon encounter any issues but as of right now the board has been rock solid. Loaded windows 7, all drivers installed and everything worked like a charm. Has just about all the bells and whistles you can have. Bios is easy to navigate/read.

Packaging is a 10/10 easily, every single SLI bridge cables are included.. I am truly amazed.

LED touches on the board is very very nice and to me is a sign of luxury when it comes to motherboards. Not too flashy, yet elegant. No extra LED cables needed or to hide.

Cons: Board is on pricey side vs other competitors or the newer versions.

2011-3 isn't cheap, few options.

DDR4 is now affordable so that to me is no longer a con.

Other Thoughts: It's a enthusiast board and offers everything you'd expect at this price point. I would highly recommend anyone considering going over to a X99 platform.

Corsair MM200 CH-9000086-WW Extended Edition Gaming Mouse Mat
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I've been using this for about a month now and I do not have anything bad to say about it. I have this on top of my Ikea Micke's computer table and it looks flawless. I like that with this you can set your keyboard on top of it and your keyboard will not go anywhere. My logitech G400s glides over it easily and I like the feedback from the mouse pad. Not too slippery and not too rough. I've used steel series mouse pads and others but this one has impressed me most. The large size is not for everyone and I myself thought that I would never get used to it. I was wayyy wrong about it and enjoy using this mouse pad very much.

Cons: Nothing, strong odor/smell upon first use but goes away quick.

Other Thoughts: If you have a table long enough for this then I highly recommend it. Though the big size may not be useful to some (most) it is still very very nice to have the extra space when needed. Let's say you have a laptop sitting next to your desktop monitor but your laptop is connected to a different mouse. This mouse pad gives you that extra for the extra mouse connected to your laptop. There are others that can be used on the mouse pad other than just a mouse, you'd be surprised.

ASRock Fatal1ty Z97X Killer LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great motherboard, booted up just fine. Easy accessible bios with a ton of overclocking options along with your typical bios options.

The color scheme was also a selling point for me since I am aiming for a red/black theme. Everything on the board in my opinion is well placed. This is the best budget board for anyone who wants a enthusiast board at the cost of a entry level board. I have this paired with a G3258 @ 4.4Ghz easily.. I bought this board with a rebate that AsRock handled very very fast and the rebate came through. Through the process they do offer rebate tracking which tracks where your rebate is currently at. This was a very nice touch from AsRock. Most of my rebates from other brands never came back.

Cons: None really. Red and black may not match all case colors but other than that the board does everything I need it to at a more than affordable price.

Other Thoughts: Not a con, if anything it's the design of a Hyper 212+ Evo.

Fan always sits so close to the ram slots on the board. I have had different brand boards in the past where the ram slots sat where these do and the Hyper 212+ fan always gets in the way, forcing me to use it as a pull configuration. Keep that in mind, unless you are using water cooling for the CPU.
