5 out of 5 eggs How to fix your motherboard from getting the cmos checksum error and power looping. 03/20/2012

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: You can fix your computer! See below. It's a great board except for this issue.

Cons: You have to flash your bios otherwise you'll get some errors eventually after a few months of use.

Other Thoughts: So if you have the version f8 for your bios then you probably (if not eventually will) have a checksum error or power boot loop. To fix this you need to update your bios to version f9. To do this go to gigabyte's website and download it. Make sure you get the right one. Open the file you download and extract the contents to a usb flash drive. Now when you reboot make sure you have the usb flash drive plugged into the computer. Hit the "delete" key to get into the bios menu and press "f8" to q-flash. It will ask if you want to run the program and press "enter". Go to "update bios from drive" and hit "enter". Select the usb flash drive and then the file with the extension ".f9". Hit "enter" and begin the process of flashing your bios. Make sure you don't shutdown or the power doesn't cut off while your doing this. When your done restart the computer and when it reboots you should be ok. Load the bios menu again and load the optimized defaults and then restart one more time. Your done!


1 out of 5 eggs Main Bios Checksum Error 03/19/2012

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I didn't expect to get an error like this after 3 months of use. I expected to have a problem either within a month or 5 years not 3 months after I've installed it and have been using it. I don't recommend anyone buying this board just on the fact that you have a 50% chance of getting this same error. I'm very annoyed with gigabyte and lifehacker who recommend this board.

4 out of 5 eggs Mic Stopped Working 05/27/2014

This review is from: Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset

Pros: n/a

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: I already a review on here on what I think about the headset. This is just an update on life expectancy of the mic.

I purchased this in December of 2011 and this past month the mic died on me. I'm not sure why if something internally went wrong or what. But being this was my first headset with a detachable mic I'd say I got somewhat my worth out of it. I would have liked it to last for at least 3 years instead of 2 but you get what you pay for.
