SONY Academic ACID Pro 7 - Download

5 out of 5 eggs Great 10/02/2016

This review is from: SONY Academic ACID Pro 7 - Download

Pros: Download vs. disc which came with plenty of support software.

Cons: None, the price is right!

Other Thoughts: Coming from Acid Pro 3.0 I wanted to get caught up with some of the newer features which were offered with 7, this was merely a refresh purchase.

TP-Link Archer T6E AC1300 Wireless Dual Band PCI Express Adapter IEEE 802.11ac / n / a 5GHz,  IEEE 802.11b / g / n 2.4GHz PCI Express 867Mbps at 5GHz,  400Mbps at 2.4GHz Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Using the 5Ghz connection your data rate is twice as fast and really zips along with the downloads. Since I have a wireless networks I needed a wireless gaming card since I was not able to get on a direction connection solution. From my experience this is the closet thing you can get to that standard but its not 100% perfect but close..

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This product is strait forward and most importantly it works!


5 out of 5 eggs Great Basic Motherboard that gets the job done! 08/15/2016

This review is from: ASUS X99-E LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Motherboards - Intel

Pros: This board has everything you need without the bloat connections which most of us do not use. I have this paired with the i7 6800K and using handbrake for transcoding vs. my old X58 rig with an X5650 @ 4Ghz is night and day and butter smooth with no audio lag! Speaking of sound the Crystal Sound 3 onboard solution is very crisp and again another huge improvement. This board does have fast boot option which is enabled in the advanced bios section, just be sure to read the manual if you’re coming from an older platform like me to be familiar with what you have for system options.

Cons: This board could use one more 3 pin fan header towards the bottom of the board for full size ATX case user fan connectivity. Lastly my Patriot Viper Xtreme DDR4-3000Mhz kit will not run at rated speeds. But I am not entirely sure if it’s the board or the kit at fault we'll see what future bio updates yield. However it will run the kit at 2800Mhz at 15-15-15-35 timings @ 1.250v so I am pleased since its tighter timings!

Other Thoughts: Here are my current settings which hopefully can help some of you still dialing in your system.

BCLK = 100
DRAM BUS = 1.25v
CPU Voltage = 1.155v w/40x ratio for 4Ghz
CPU Cache = 1.125v w/34x ratio
CPU Max Input 1.8v
AVX 3x Offset Ratio "very important if you run Prime95 for stress testing or AVX instructions"!
RAM Timings 2800Mhz @ 15-15-15-35 1.250V

Again for a $200 board this thing can overclock quit nice just using the 8 pin connection, keep in mind you have an additional 4 pin for extra power if needed. Also I have been running these settings for two months now rock solid with no issues.
