MSI R7850 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great Physical Device. Ample power to run everything I want to. Puts out 1080p performance for all of my games and allows me to run 3 monitors effortlessly. Look at cons for my disgust.

Cons: Drivers are completely terrible. Every few hours or so my computer crashes and locks up. No BSOD or any nonsense or the like that I can fix. When i reboot my system AMD Catalyst drivers somehow uninstall themselves and wont allow me to open the program. Message states:

"Catalyst Control Center cannot be started.
There are currently no settings that can be configured using Catalyst Control Center"

This is nonsense I am running 2 of the graphics cards in XFire to net a performance boost to somewhat reach the ability of or better than the NVidia GTX 660 cards. I consistently have to uninstall and reinstall these drivers. I even disable my iGPU from my Core i5 3570K CPU to see if this could resolve the issue. Didnt work obviously. I am thoroughly disgusted with the difficulty I am having to endure to enjoy my gaming experience on my computer. Sad too since I had previously purchased 2 Radeon 6850's from newegg as well and those worked flawlessly until I upgraded.

I am going to call newegg soon for an RMA on both cards unless someone from MSI contacts me to help me resolve this issue.

Other Thoughts: My build:

CPU: Core i5 3570K @ 4.3GHz OC'd
MB: P8Z68-v Pro/Gen3
RAM: 16GB Corsair Dominator 1600MHz (Running at 1333 can't seem to obtain 1600MHz performance)
SSD: 2x Corsair GT SSD's in Raid 0
HDD: 2x Seagate 2TB in Raid 0
PSU: Corsair 750W
Cooler: Corsair H100
Case: CM 690

ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: None

Cons: So many I cannot begin. First board died on me within 2 weeks of using the motherboard. Can't get into BIOS or even flash new BIOS. Plus when it would bring up ASUS's fancy BIOS screen with the ROG symbol it won't even post to the screen. The image is completely corrupted and you can't recognize anything on the screen. Let alone when you press the F key to go into the BIOS it won't even recognize that the button is being pressed to go into the BIOS system. Kept reading that there was an ECC memory corruption and Asus customer service said to RMA the board.

After fighting with Customer Service for 4 MONTHS to get my board replaced according to THEIR policy I received my second board that was DOA... Same thing except when it tried to boot it said no OS. So I replaced the disc into the drive and it still wouldn't recognize the drive.

Now I'm out my computer for who knows how many more months and might be charged as well for replacing the second board on top of that.


BUYER BEWARE OF PRODUCT YOU ARE PURCHASING. Apparently other people have been doing well with this board... I'm just that 1 out of 1,000,000 customer that will always get the bottom of the barrel...

SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum front door and plastic front panel, 0.8mm SECC body Grandia Series GD06B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: great size for a home theatre, can house msi frozr ii gtx 560 card

three 120mm fans for air flow

hot swap bays

Cons: tough to get hdds out of hot swap bays

can't use most PSU's if you want multiple graphics cards

probably my fault but I couldn't find specs for how big a PSU this can hold

Other Thoughts: original case came with no keys and was missing some small amount of other accessories. had to RMA for another with keys. can't even install stuff without the keys.

other than that its a good case for what I need to do.
