This review is from: CM Storm Devastator - LED Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Combo Bundle (Red Edition)
Pros: Works wonderful so far. Make sure to press "SCR LK" to turn on the LED lights. Some people are putting that in the con area but I don't think it's a hindrance in any way.
Also, I like the design.
Cons: None so far. It's a basic keyboard with LED lights. I wasn't looking for anything fancy, I just wanted to be able to see my keys in the dark, and this def does the job.
Other Thoughts: It's 5 eggs (unless it breaks on me) because you get what you pay for. I didn't see anything advertised that was deceitful.
I'll edit after a month or so again.
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Plenty of everything..at least for what I need.
Pretty cheap for a mid range motherboard.
Cons: Unless, you're one of those people that's really picky and wants the very best in cheapest price, you won't find any cons with this motherboard.
Other Thoughts: Some people might not be aware of this. There are 4 PCIe slots..the first one is x16, the second one is x4, the third one is x16 and the fourth one is x4...which means there is plenty of room for you to SLI/crossfire without suffocating the cards.
I don't know why some people were complaining of northbridge getting overheated, I haven't had any problems with heat. System temp on idle stays around 28-30 C.
Pros: 3D for $130 bucks at the time I bought it.
HDMI, DVI and VGA all available.
Cons: None. Maybe the viewing angle but it doesn't really bother me at all.
Other Thoughts: Some people are complaining that it's not a good monitor for 3D...i'm not entirely sure I agree.
You can watch any video in 3D with a click of a button (literally), you don't need to do anything extra. The CD that comes with this monitor contains cyberlink powerdvd and you can watch all videos through that in 3D. However, if you truly want the 3D experience you will need a 3D movie, not a 2D that gets converted into 3D, which by the way cyberlink can do for you, but again it's not as good.
So download all movies in 3D 1080p (8-14gb) or buy them (lol) and you will realize how great it is that you have a 3D set up in your room that is as great as in the theater. Also, it's passive 3D, which means you put on your glasses, turn 3D on and you're set.
As far as games go, if you have Nvidia you can use stereoscopic 3D in the control panel and then just start any game, press ctrl + t to switch to 3D and you're good to go. Again, not all games are going to look good in 3D and some might not work at all. I managed to play Batman Arkham Origins in 3D and it's freaking awesome. Also, realize that 3D will eat up your vram so you will need to a great video card to play high demanding games in 3D. AMD cards can be played through tridef 3D, which also comes with the CD.
