MSI 970 Gaming AM3+ AMD 970 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs One Year Update 09/05/2015

This review is from: MSI 970 Gaming AM3+ AMD 970 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Flawless performance for over a year now. Manually overclock (BIOS) AMD FX-6300 to 4.2Ghz, and board stays cool, with temps well under concern levels. Manually overclock GTX 640 video card using MSI Afterburner software. Together, I'm able to get 60+FPS on Microsoft Flight Simulator X, with smooth operation of all controls.

All jacks, sound card, and peripherals have also been trouble free. Not a single problem with this board. Not one! Great sound too with the included Creative software and built-in upgraded sound card.

Cons: Not a fan of MSI's Commander overclocking software. Had it lock up on me several times. Found it faster and easier to just save gaming and standard use settings in BIOS (you can save up to 5 settings), and then switch back and forth as needed.

Other Thoughts: By far, the most trouble-free MB I've owned. Built over 40 computers now, and this one has been the most trouble free. I am also very happy with the gaming performance, especially given this is a value build. Do your build right, using this board, and good peripheral components, and you will be happy too!

HGST Ultrastar A7K2000 HUA722020ALA331 2TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I bought this for price, which may have been a mistake. The reviews weren't that bad, and I figured it would be a good drive for backups. On to the "Cons".

Cons: It's noisy, and runs hotter than any HD I've ever owned, and I've owned many over the years, by all manufacturers. I have it in a USB 3.0 docking station, with a fan blowing on it, and it still goes over 53c during a backup. That's far hotter than any WD or Seagate HD I have.

It's also slow. I'm averaging only 30kb sec. in a USB 3.0 dock, which is slower than other SATA II drives I use. It's not throwing errors yet, but I don't have great hopes for this drive. Would not purchase another. Glad I purchased the extended warranty, though that won't cover lost data, or having to backup the backup due to a now expected failure.

Other Thoughts: Spend more, get better, if your data is important to you.

5 out of 5 eggs Great Deal-FAST Delivery! 07/06/2015

This review is from: TDK 4.7GB 16X DVD+R 50 Packs Spindle Disc Model 48519

Pros: The disks work, which is all one can ask. They were also a great price on-sale.

Importantly, as a NewEgg customer for many years, this was the fastest free delivery yet! I placed the order on Friday 07/03, and it was delivered today, 07/06, in Oregon, even with the July 4th holiday intervening! On-Track delivery is great!

Cons: none whatsoever
