Logitech M100 910-001601 Black 3 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 1000 dpi Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Cheap and Functional Mouse 12/03/2014

This review is from: Logitech M100 910-001601 Black 3 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 1000 dpi Mouse

Pros: Cheap. Functional. Decent left, right, and middle clicks. Decent mouse-wheel.

Cons: I can think of very many cons to this mouse in comparison to more expensive products, but at a $10-11 price range it crushes the other options available.

Other Thoughts: I have had this mouse for about 6 months now and it is going strong. I use this mouse very heavily in games like League of Legends and very many others. (See: extremely heavy use.)

All of my clicks are still being recognized. The mouse wheel is working well. Left and right clicks are just fine.

If I have to replace this mouse within a year, I probably won't regret it considering the very low price.

ARCTIC MX-4 (4g) Carbon-Based Thermal Compound, Non-Electricity Conductive, Non-Capacitive
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I will simply say that I am running an i5-4690k at 4.7ghz with 1.34v at 40C on full load. (Full load achieved in Prime95.) Ambient temperatures in the PC's space range from 21C-24C.

I am cooling this chip on air with a Hyper 212 EVO, 5 case fans, and this MX-4 Thermal Compound.

Cons: Need I say more?

Intel Core i5-4690K Devil's Canyon Quad-Core 3.5GHz LGA 1150 Desktop Processor BX80646I54690K
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I currently have this chip overclocked to 4.7ghz at 1.34v

What amazes me is that the chip will NOT HEAT UP. Under a full load running Prime95 for 20 minutes, this chip did not break 40C. I cannot explain it. I have checked both third-party software and my BIOS for temperature fluctuations and this chip does not break 40C. (I live in Florida with ambient temperatures in the computer space of around 21C-24C.)

I was able to get this chip stable in Prime95 (small and large FFT for 20 mins) running at 4.7ghz and 1.3v but I experienced some graphical artifacting while playing games. Bumping the vcore to 1.34v solved the problem completely.

I got a BSOD trying to run Prime95 at 3.8ghz with 1.3v

I am cooling this chip on air with a CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO and 5 case fans. I used Arctic MX-4 thermal compound.

The performance of this chip is just as good as it's specifications. I am able to stream my favorite games at 1080p while maintaing a quite decent framerate considering that my video card is a meager HD7870.

While streaming and running games at 1080p, I also have a browser open on a second monitor with a video streaming. I could probably perform more tasks in order to max this chip out, but I am just one man!!!

I would recommend this chip to any gamer who can afford the purchase.

Cons: This chip does not have hyper-threading capability QQ

Other Thoughts: This chip is competing against the FX 8350 and FX 8370. Although I don't own either of those chips, I must contend that the extra cash it costs for the 4690k is well worth the expense.

This extra cost is buying the consumer more advanced lithography (22nm vs 32nm), lower power consumption over time (88w vs 125w + more wattage when overclocking. Saves the cost difference over a year of heavy use), better single-threaded performance over AMD's modules (better gaming performance), and a more advanced chipset in Z97 motherboards.

In my opinion, the extra cost becomes warranted when weighing the positives that the 4690k offers. I really hope that AMD can bring something new to the desktop CPU game in 2016.
