GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-UD3 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Compared to many of the DDR3 boards that support the socket 1151 I feel this is the best bang for the buck. Being able to run two cards in SLI (at 8x) and still have a third card for extra monitors really sold me. The audio is crisp and the option to eventually use the two M2 slots will be nice going down the road.

Cons: I don't know if the designers had intended for this, but physically the board comes up about a half-inch short of being able to utilize the proper standoffs. There is also another odd standoff hole on the board itself that is 100% useless to me. Mind you I'm using an ATX Full Tower case and I had just done a motherboard swap and it's just right there. This bothers me because all it takes is one ham-handed moment installing the RAM and you can say goodbye to the PCB.
The USB 3.1 Drivers off of the Gigabyte website are practically non-existent for Windows 7. The supposed installer you download just pops open a menu and when you click "OK" it exits the setup. I don't know about them being fully available for Windows 10, but I'm not going to worry about it for right now.

Other Thoughts: I had dealt with a power failure in the house a few days ago and it had damaged my old board's SATA controller. For specifications this was the best board I could get on such short notice.

Cooler Master RP090-S19AJ1-US (NA 90) Universal Notebook Power Adapter with 10 Adapter Tips
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Plugs right in with the correct adapter which I needed. Also powers the device with no trouble at all

Cons: Extra adapters than I know what to do with.

Other Thoughts: I got this to replace a customer's power supply for his Dell Inspiron One 2020. He was using a beat-up HP laptop charger that had seen better days. I would have tried to fix it, but anyone who's tried to splice that coax-style wiring knows it's a lost cause.

Intel Network 7260.HMWWB.R WiFi WIRELESS-AC 7260 H/T 2X2 AC 867 Mbps+ Bluetooth HMC Dual Band Brown Box
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Advertises bluetooth, wireless AC, etc.

Cons: Sadly this card cannot work on an HP Pavilion dv6 model laptop because of the manufacturer's whitelisting. I've even tried using a modified bios I had found online and still got blocked right at boot.

Other Thoughts: One thing is for certain though: never again will I buy HP products. I'll run my printer/copier/scanner from them into the ground and go with someone like Canon in the future.

Going to give this product 4/5 eggs. I'm sure it's great and all, but there's bound to be some trouble if I could even use it.
