GARMIN GPS Navigation with Lifetime Map & Traffic Updates
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome Product 06/20/2012

This review is from: GARMIN GPS Navigation with Lifetime Map & Traffic Updates

Pros: Updates easily and can be done up to 4 times in a year. The screen is large and the speed turns red when you exceed posted speed limit. The menu is different from older GPS, but its very easy to learn how to use.

Cons: Fingerprints on screen are difficult to remove, and screen is difficult to see at extreme angles so the passenger can not see easily. (could also be seen as a Pro)

Other Thoughts: The voice has come a long way yet I still turn it off. I would recommend this to others.

GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 4 provides the safe operation at higher temps and offers additional protection from condensation or humidity. This also allows for better stability and better overclocking. The Intel LGA 1155 socket has only 16 lanes available for PCI-e unless this board has additional on-board lanes available the other 16x socket is for show, or just offers a second GPU placement option. However you can not fault Gigabyte for Intel's decision to offer only 16 PCI-e lanes, however because of this Micro ATX motherboard design is sufficient when dealing with LGA 1155. There is nothing wrong with x8x8 This is even more so true when compared with AMD with x8x8x.
Less importantly this has 5 fan headers, last board I bought only had 1 for the CPU.

Cons: None

Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I53570K
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: An over clock of 4.0 from 3.4 is actually 17.7%. Use some water cooling to lower your temps.

Cons: This is a mainstream processor that is a heavy producer. It does what it is supposed to do. No need for stock heat sink deducting an egg for this would be useless, as Intel would not reduce price.

Other Thoughts: Overclocking requires anything other than stock HSF. If you purchase this you should consider water cooling.
