This review is from: CM Storm Devastator - Blue LED Backlight Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Combo Bundle
Pros: Can tell right out of the box this is a quality built keyboard and mouse, with a lot of features. Keyboard is heavy and keystrokes are very smooth. L.E.D's are really bright, looks almost like the keys are floating in a pool. Mouse has very good sensitivity with up to 2000 DPI, can be turned down for people like me who like low sensitivity during games. Not a ton of buttons but the extra ones are multi functional.
Cons: It didn't come in red...., about it!
Other Thoughts: Replaced my Genius K9 after spilling soda on it. Was sad at first because I liked that keyboard so much, but am now happier with this. GREAT for gaming and looks very nice too! Best deal on NewEgg right now!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Good VRM cooling, 2x Pciex16 slots, fancy looking.
Cons: I upgraded to this from a MSI G43-970A to suit my crossfire R9-270x's. The old MSI board was able to run my 4x4gb G. Skill Ripjaws X DDR3-1866 at 1866Mhz. This board however, REFUSES to run them any higher than 1600Mhz. I have tried both XMP's, setting it manually to 1866Mhz, adjusting timings, voltages....Any of these cause the board not to post. I had this same problem with my old Biostar TA970A and was happy that the MSI fixed the problem. Now I am back to the same problem, with a "higher end" board. Also, overclocking is very touchy and the board is rarely stable unless the overclock is minimal. This is odd, as the 990 chipsets are claimed to be "so much better" at overclocking.
Other Thoughts: Will try customer support, but will probably RMA this board for an Asus or another MSI. Seeing it takes two hours to remove all of my connectors, liquid cooling and motherboard, I do not want to keep doing this. If you say the native frequency is 1866mhz, it should run at that!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APEVIA CF4SL-UGN 80mm 4 x Green Lights LED UV Green LED Case Fan
Pros: Amazing airflow for an 80mm fan. Cools my AMD 970 northbridge well and the green L.E.D is bright and vibrant.
Cons: LOUD. It can be heard across the room, over my gaming rig which has 8x120mm case fans, 4x120mm GPU fans and 2x 140mm CPU fans.
Other Thoughts: Will be replacing in the future with a quieter, fluid bearing fan. This fan will be good in my server room where I cant hear it!READ FULL REVIEW
