Thermaltake Toughpower XT TPX-1275M 1275W ATX 12V 2.3 & SSI EPS 12V 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Powerful, 1275W of peak power. Semi-modular. Lots of power options.

Cons: Out of 12 or 15 installed in regular builds, about 6 have failed already. By "fail" I mean they either don't provide enough power when 4 RAM slots are populated, causing the computer as a whole to not even POST. It's really hit or miss with them, which is extremely frustrating seeing as we have to burn through them at an alarming rate. This horribly affects productivity and costs US time and money to get replacements.

Other Thoughts: If possible, you should stay away from this one. We have 850W Seasonic PSUs on hand, and although they don't provide the same peak wattage, they have yet to fail on us.

Microsoft  SIDEWINDER X4  Keyboard - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs One big basket of NOPE 03/29/2014

This review is from: Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Keyboard - Retail

Pros: Great for use as a standard keyboard.
Easy set up.
Macro buttons.
Dedicated calculator button.

Cons: Horrible for use as a gaming keyboard.

While playing Titanfall, the keyboard will frequently stop working. Button presses would freeze, so whatever buttons were depressed at the time of the freeze would be constantly outputted to the game. I would occasionally run in one direction with no control over my avatar whatsoever. It's so bad that my mouse even freezes up and my computer stops responding to any input commands.

At times the input would lag for a half second or more.

After boot, macros are unresponsive for a good 3 seconds before activating. I would start up my computer, use it normally for 10 minutes, then try a macro. Nothing happens for a moment, and then the macro plays afterwards.

The keys feel slightly flimsy. Actuation distance and force aren't that high so it takes getting used to. And there's no satisfying "click" like with a mechanical.

Other Thoughts: I bought this after returning a bricked Razer BlackWidow for a full refund (botched firmware upgrade). It was cheap and I was low on funds (recently proposed to my gf, ring set me back about a paycheck).

My next board will definitely be either WASD or DAS.

ASUS Z9PE-D16 SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great board 02/13/2014

This review is from: ASUS Z9PE-D16 SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600

Pros: Quad LAN, insane RAM capacity, SATA3, dual 2011, Lots of PCIe options, very rock solid board.

We've had 2 boards fail... out of 32 purchased. If you know how to math, that's a 6.25% failure rate. Not bad!

Cons: The ASMB6-iKVM module is totally useless. We have our system set up to power on when power is applied through a switched PDU, and having the module plugged in adds an extra 3 minutes to startup time. This no be good.

Other Thoughts: This is an SSI EEB motherboard. Very VERY specifically, these are not compatible with normal EATX cases. You need to purchase a server case with compatibility for EEB motherboards, such as the Rosewill RSV-L4000 or Silverstone ST-GD07B cases.
