MSI Big Bang-XPower LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Don't waste your time or hard earned cash on this one 02/05/2012

This review is from: MSI Big Bang-XPower LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Runs two cards in SLI both at x16. OC'd my i7-950@4.2GHz.

Cons: If you like using the S3 sleep state ony your rig, pass this one up. When on any kind of OC, resuming from sleep changes the voltage on the memory causing an error and forcing you to reset BIOS. Really MSI?!? BIOS v1.6 is the latest which was released almost a year ago?!? This is known issue and its being ignored by the MSI staff apparently.

Other Thoughts: Should have stuck with Gigabyte or Asus.

KINGWIN Lazer Gold Series LZG-850 850W ATX 12V v2.2 / EPS 12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 850W
80 Plus Gold
Sleeved cables
Blue LED fan
JonnyGuru score: 9.7
Less expensive than others in it's category

Cons: No switch on LED fan to turn the LED's off.

Other Thoughts: I'm not too keen on the Lazer sticker located on the side or the Kingwin badge located at the center of the fan grill but these are not to detract from the unit's performance.

Cooler Master Hyper N520 - CPU Cooler with Copper Base and 5 Heatpipes
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Looks cool, keeps my i7-950 at 37C at idle

Cons: Loud! Sounds like my rig is going to take off! No PWM.

Other Thoughts: I ordered two Arctic Cooling PWM fans (Item#: N82E16835186034) to replace the two Cooler Master fans that come installed on the heatsink. Hopefully this will decrease the sound. I also own the Cooler Master Hyper 212 which is much quieter and cheaper.
