This review is from: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
Pros: microsoft will be focusing on this and letting win 7-8 slide as time goes on
Cons: read the other reviews
Other Thoughts: i decided to make this review a little different than the endless list of pros and cons you can see elsewhere here. there's really one big glaring giant point to win 10 and that is the support moving forward. new games, new programs, new hardware, chances are it will all be designed around win10.
the second thing to consider is every version of windows that i can remember from 95 onward sucked when it first came out, then, the good ones....oddly every other release got better as time went on. you had 98, xp, win7, and now win 10 which appears to be on the same track as the previous versions worth using.
win xp was a great great version....and...it's just locked in the past now, great for dos and early programs but it's a product of its age. win 7 is going to go the same way so the only question you have to ask yourself is if you want to upgrade now or wait a couple years.
This review is from: EVGA TORQ X10 901-X1-1103-KR Wired Laser Gaming Mouse
Pros: most everything. fit, feel, weight, precision
Cons: button clicking is a tad shallow
Other Thoughts: this is a great great mouse and i almost didn't purchase it. the short story is i had a 50% off code for an evga mouse and bought this thinking "what the heck' i already had an x3 and was curious if this was much of an upgrade. well...it is and it's better in every way except one. the button clicking on this mouse is very shallow and if you're use to a more full defined click this one may through you until you get use to it. for example if the average mouse has a click depth of say .10mm this one would most likely measure about .05mm or roughly half of what a regular mouse is, maybe 60% but around there. if you play FPS games this could be seen as input lag reduction as it is that much faster. however, for day to day tasks i'm not sure if i'm sold. i will say this much though....while i have an x3 and wireless logitech sitting here i did not go back to either after getting the x10.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: cheap, hyperthreading
Cons: 2 cores, locked multiplier
Other Thoughts: the main reason i decided to write a review was to bring up a very inexpensive way to keep this cpu very cool. as many of you may know, the i3 comes with a solid aluminum. the i5-i7 copper core socket 1150 heatsinks snap right into the fan and or complete i5 copper core take off fans are $8 shipped on the auction site. the heavier duty copper core cooler has this cpu running in the 30-32c range during basic tasks and so far i haven't seen over 39c even gaming. i think if i really push on it getting in the 40s could be done, but, that's pretty darn good imo for such a low cost upgrade.READ FULL REVIEW
