This review is from: Microsoft Xbox One Wireless Adapter for Windows
Pros: - Can finally use Xbox one Controllers with Windows 10
- It works
Cons: - Took Microsoft two years to put this out
- Wasn't plug and play
- Only works on Windows 10
Other Thoughts: Prior to ordering this I was using DS4 Windows and a Sony DS4 via bluetooth. Then I upgraded to Windows 10 and the bluetooth functionality stopped working.
I bought this, despite being angry with Microsoft for taking a year after releasing Xbox One to have Windows driver support for the controllers, and almost two years to release a Wireless Adapter.
Anyways it doesn't work right out of the box. After you plug it in, and Windows 10 fails to install the right driver, you need to head to settings, and Windows Update to manually install the driver yourself.
In any case it works fine once you get it working.
This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: - UEFI bios is very straightforward and workable
- CPU overclocks are near perfect for stability
- Supports ram that can be clocked quite high
Cons: Nothing note-worthy.
Other Thoughts: I usually buy ASUS motherboards and I plan to keep on doing that. However, I wanted to try something new and heard great things about ASRock the past couple of years. I can see why after testing out this board.
I absolutely love the way the UEFI bios is laid out, and overclocking with an i5 3570k is a breeze. I had it stable at 5.0ghz on liquid before settling on a much more reasonable 4.2ghz.
I would definitely buy this board or one of its big brothers again if the need would arise.
Pros: - fairly easy to overclock
- decent gaming performance
- Decent load temps on liquid
Cons: - heavy power draw for a quad-core (although this is a broad bulldozer issue)
- single thread performance like all of the dozer series leaves much to be desired.
Other Thoughts: "Upgraded" from a 1090T. The goal was to run games more smoothly. Success after overclocking this thing to 4.6ghz on liquid. Going to wait and see if Piledriver is worth upgrading for and then maybe drop one of the 8 cores in my pc.READ FULL REVIEW
