This review is from: Logitech G13 (920-000946) Advanced Gameboard
Pros: Responsive thumb stick, great default profiles for most of my games, extra LCD screen comes in handy.
All in all, one great piece of equipment.
Other Thoughts: The default control scheme works in all my games so far, except Force Unleashed 2 which seems to think it's a controller style gamepad. The thumb stick is nice and responsive, and the keys are responsive and sturdy. The additional LCD screen (have one already on my v1 G15) is nice, as I can keep game specific displays up in one and still have temp or performance monitors up in the other. The mouse style buttons by the thumb stick are great, and the 3 memory functions for the buttons being unique to the game profiles allows for multiple custom key sets for all your games.
This pad is absolutely worth the price if you are an avid gamer, or even just a casual gamer looking for some extra convenience.
I absolutely recommend this product. I have only had it for a little over a week, but I already am unsure how I ever survived without it.
This review is from: Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
Pros: Hands down the best thermal compound available.
Cons: Not one.
Other Thoughts: If you are going to spend money on decent PC components, pony up the extra bit of cash on good thermal compound. This stuff is keeping me at least about 5-10 C cooler. Might not sound like much, but under heavy loads, that 5-10 C can be the difference between a working part and a fried one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI 790FX-GD70 AM3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Great Mobo. My 5870 was able to fit on it, though I had to put it down in the 2nd x16 slot (Slot 3). The layout of the board is very nice, and I love the onboard buttons & OC dial.
Cons: Nothing I would consider an actual con.
I was just a little bit disappointed when I plugged my DDR3 1600 RAM in and it was limited to 1333 by default. Since it talks up supporting up to 2133 OC I would've hoped that it would actually handle these by default, rather than my having to manually "overclock" up to the default settings of my RAM. However, I had been expecting it as other reviews mention the issue, and the OCing was quite easy to do.
Other Thoughts: It's an amazing board. I highly recommend this board to anyone that is setting up an AMD based gaming system.
Plus it looks awesome.
