Tripp Lite P314-012 12 ft. Audio Y Splitter Adapter 3.5MM Plug/2 RCA Plugs M-M
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs 1 Week shy of a full year 04/30/2012

This review is from: Tripp Lite P314-012 12 ft. Audio Y Splitter Adapter 3.5MM Plug/2 RCA Plugs M-M

Pros: It lasted roughly one week shy of a full year. Pretty durable cable, and for the cheap price I can't be to upset.

Cons: The cable worked completely fine until about a month ago, now only one speaker plays, while the other is silent. In other words, my red cable works and the white one does not. There is zero wear/tear on the cable itself, and after setting it up the first time, I never touched it/moved it/physically did anything to it. Just wish it would have lasted longer.

Other Thoughts: Its not a bad cable, especially for the price. But now I have to purchase another one to keep my audio 100% working, and I will be staying away from this specific cable this time in hopes of finding one that will last me longer than this one did.

GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-DS4 AM2+/AM2 AMD 790X ATX Ultra Durable II AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It runs great now. Had to RMA it and wait FOREVER for gigabyte to send it back.

Cons: After about 2 months the thing literally caught fire. Like a two inch flame coming off of it. I sent it in and waited about a month and a half(which is fast compared to other people waiting) for them to send me a new one back. Now the thing runs great.

Other Thoughts: Look for something better. But if your on a budget this would be a decent board.

GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-DS4 AM2+/AM2 AMD 790X ATX Ultra Durable II AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It was working pretty good for about 4-5 months. By pretty good I mean nothing was messing up for the first 3 months. Then it would randomly reboot. I know it is not a overheating problem with my CPU since I have a 120mm HSF over it, and in the BIOS my phenom runs about 30C on idle.

Cons: Hmmm...where to start. Well for starters the motherboard will slow your ram down and you have to manually set the speeds(unless your ram is slower to begin with). It was required that I flash my bios, or the computer would continue to randomly restart.

Oh and I forgot to mention it caught on fire.

Other Thoughts: Well as I said in the "cons", the thing caught on fire. Now it seems this isnt the first time it has happened with this motherboard, and most likely will not be the last. It was running fine for about 4-5 months then when I went to reboot the computer shut down and didnt come back on. I figured something went wrong(was used to getting little errors here and there from this thing) so I reached down to turn it back on and nothing responded. I was able to specifically figure out when my 8-pin connector was plugged in the computer would do nothing, but when unplugged it would boot. Weird right? I wasn't sure if it was my PSU or my motherboard, and hoping it was my PSU I went ahead and ordered a new one. Once I got the new PSU all hooked up and such I turned it on, and what do ya know, the thing catches on fire beside the CPU. I am still yet to know if it harmed anything else(hop not) but as for now I wont be buying anything from gigabyte. A house fire is NOT worth it.
