5 out of 5 eggs Very good software and Cable 10/02/2015

This review is from: APRICORN ASW-USB3-25 USB3.0 to SATA Adapter

Pros: Fast, accurate cloning.

The software is extremely easy to use.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have always preferred the Apricorn cloning kit, but my last one was almost 4 years old and the cable stopped being recognized anywhere.

So I ordered a new one, which I was pleasantly surprised is USB 3.0 compatible.

Works like a charm!

5 out of 5 eggs Top-Notch Gaming pad! 10/02/2015

This review is from: MSI Sistorm GAMING Mouse Pad

Pros: Smooth, semi-hard surface allows for easy mousefoot movement and for precise location of the mouse laser.

Big enough to move around for all gaming actions.

Nice no-slip backing.

It's not cloth, so the edges will not fray from constant wrist movement along the bottom edge.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I got this free with an MSI 980, which was already on sale, so combined it was a heck of a good deal!

I recommend highly!

MSI GeForce GTX 980 GTX 980 GAMING 4G 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card

Pros: -Powerful (outperforms my 780 it replaced anywhere from 10-20 fps at 1080 while allowing more settings like Shadows to be maxxed out)
-4GB of VRAM (my 780's 3GB frame buffer was becoming not enough in some games with max graphical settings)
-Very quiet, even with setting a fan profile to always run at at least 30% (and on up according to temperature)
-Very cool: it has yet to be heard over the case fans, even when it gets up to 70% fan speed to keep highest temps encountered yet at 65 Celcius
-Efficient: at full load it provides more power with about 5 Watts less usage than the 780!
-Very aesthetically pleasing card!
-No coil whine at all!

Cons: -No backplate. I say this not because I believe it helps cool a card (it really doesn't), or because of looks. It needs a backplate because it's so HEAVY. The back end sags slightly with the weight.

I know MSI can do backplates, because my fiance's 970 100ME comes with a backplate, which keeps the end from sagging. On a top-tier card like the 980, there is no reason not to provide one. I would have paid $10-$15 more for one to be included.

Still, because of it's sheer performance I won't take an egg off.

Other Thoughts: I got this to replace my 780. The 970 is virtually the same performance, so that was out, and a 980Ti is simply too expensive. For a real upgrade, this was the no-brainer option. I've become familiar with the quality of MSI cards lately, and thus this is the only brand I considered for my 980.
