This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SRA-O ATX Server Motherboard LGA 2011 Intel C612
Pros: Boot time - I thought it was waking from sleep, no, it just boots that fast with Windows 10, SSD, and Xeon E5. What a beast. I love turning on the machine now. 9 to 15 seconds.
ECC memory, I use 2 sticks of Crucial 8GB. So far so good. Used to need it for a database backend while I hosted an mmo. Still, good to have around and give the finger to cosmic rays.
Holds up my gigantic Noctua i4 cpu cooler well. I can run that Xeon cool at all work loads. I never hear loud noise from any fans from the pc.
Cons: The labeling for the case power/reset pins was not clear. Even with manual guidebook, I had to trial and error with the case button until I got it right.
I see some people mentioning lack of overclocking, mind you that this is not a gaming board. This was intended for work or hosting. Why would anyone in business mindset risk warranties overclocking. Wrong purpose, wrong board. But if we must talk gaming, it plays all my Steam games just fine, including Anno 2205 just fine even when I call in a dozen fleet of support ships, or have 3 islands fully populated and upgraded.
This review is from: powercom KIN-1000AP 1000 VA 600 Watts 5 Outlets UPS
Pros: I bought this thing in March 2012. It worked perfectly through storms and high wind power blips...until a month ago when could no longer smoothly and consistently transition in and out of power outage.
Cons: Warm. Annoying beeps during activate state.
Other Thoughts: I'm replacing mine with a Cyberpower 1500VA today, not because this powercom wasn't worth it. Just because I want to see if Cyberpower will last over 3 years compared to this thing.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAZER Naga Hex Wired USB Gaming Mouse - Green
Pros: Lighting, looks, buttons. Light weight. DPI.
Cons: Will not boot up with my x58 SLI3 EVGA system. I own a Death Adder and Abyss from Razer and those boot up with the system fine. This Naga Hex will not boot, the lights stay dead and moving the mouse or clicking it does nothing. The only way to get this mouse to work is re-plug it into the USB slot after the OS boots up. But ask yourself, what kind of gamer wants to do that every time he boots up his PC? This mouse may as well be DOA.READ FULL REVIEW
