MSI Z87I AC LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Awesome card, Uh-oh wifi. 06/23/2014

This review is from: MSI Z87I AC LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: -Great Stats and construction!
-Same stats as full sized MSI card just not as many PCI ports or RAM slots. And not as much bloat-ware
-Pretty sweet network specs. Built in Wi-Fi card that can handle AC. 2 Ethernet ports
-The card didn’t make any creaking noises when plugging things into it.
-Plenty of Sata ports (well for me… )
-Some of the programs, Killer Ethernet manager and Virtu MVP that are on the higher end G series motherboard tend to cause A lot of random problems with some games. (Virtu MVP and Battlefield4 I can specifically recall. And Killer Ethernet manager had a problem with PAYDAY2)

Cons: -Sata ports happened to be right next to a fan in my case (might not be a problem in your case, and wasn’t like a big issue just blocking air flow and hard to plug in connectors)
-Something wrong with the Wi-Fi card OR antennas, will get into that in the extra thoughts. (dropped an egg over it)
-no dragons

Other Thoughts: There is something blatantly wrong with the Wi-Fi card or antennas, I’ve found numerous unsolved Intel tickets about the problem but they either say it’s not their fault or to update the drivers. When I’m getting dropped packets and stupid high response times to my home router standing next to it with the antennas fully Tightened there’s a problem when I get better connection with lose antennas that’s probably a bigger problem. I installed Intel’s “newest driver” and bloat-ware which seemed to help until I retightened the antennas and lost it… I used a 5$ Asian wireless receiver the size of a wireless mouse receiver and gotten better results and nothing being dropped. Not recommending anyone using Intel Wireless stuff. “Well maybe it’s your router” OK… my router manages to connect to everything else perfectly. I’ve tried both 5 Ghz and 2.4 Ghz and have had mixed results of which one is working better.” Well what about AC” There backwards compatible and should have no problem with n or g. plus it’s not like having AC is going to make your internet speeds go up. Just another bottleneck…I do a lot of continuous ping tests when I move my computer or moving the antennae. I’m adding the antenna parts being problem after the fact cause that could be it too.
Don't feel like its worth RMAing over, but it is super frustrating!

Logitech G602 910-003820 Black 11 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Optical 2500 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs Very nice gaming mouse (my first G mouse) 06/23/2014

This review is from: Logitech G602 910-003820 Black 11 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Optical 2500 dpi Gaming Mouse

Pros: -multiple configurable buttons (6 on the side and the 2 sensitivity buttons) can be changed to whatever keys you need
-Can change DPI on the fly, can be configured from 5 values in between like 250 DPI to 2500 DPI (at 250 intervals)
-Can change how often it reads movements "performance mode" (500 per min) and "endurance mode" (150 per min) the 150 per min is faster than the mouse I had before it. (Can change the intervals of that as well)
-Good packaging
-Wireless
-Battery powered

Cons: -A little big for my small hands (not that bad)

Other Thoughts: In order to configure the buttons you need to get the software form Logitech's website. Doesn't come on a disc and its probably to big for PnP!

Cooler Master Elite 130 - Mini-ITX Computer Case with Mesh Front Panel and Water Cooling Support
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Can fit full sized graphics cards. 05/14/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite 130 - Mini-ITX Computer Case with Mesh Front Panel and Water Cooling Support

Pros: -Size
-Can fit larger Graphics cards (2 slots. Longer cards)
-Can fit pretty long PSU (I think mine was like 6 inches or something) The whole PSU mount in the back can be unscrewed from like 2 positions (Can then slide it back out) which makes it pretty nice to work with if you forgot a power connection to something.
-Pretty nice airflow
-Has cable management stuff (I took out one because I thought it was too much trouble, the other I moved forward because my PSU was so long.
-Has option for Water cooling

Cons: -Size (overall Micro ITX cases are pretty hard to work in but that’s a given)
-Bottom mount for HDD is not good for cable connections (I recommend not using a CD drive and just putting the HDD there) I moved mine after I had set up windows with a CD drive
-Some of the places to put things are not intuitive (SSD hangs under the CD drive bay.)
- I did have some trouble With the USB connections, at first the USB 3.0 were not working but when I went back into case I tried Pushing in the connectors more (didn’t seem to move) but they worked after that.

Other Thoughts: The side fan was right next to where my motherboard had the Sata connections which was pretty rough getting those to connect but I don't think there in the same spot on other motherboards. I managed to boot first time and with no cords in any fans
