Logitech MX310 MX 310 MX-310 Wired 6-Button Optical Wheel Mouse
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs This is a SMALL mouse ! 01/26/2015

This review is from: Logitech MX310 MX 310 MX-310 Wired 6-Button Optical Wheel Mouse

Pros: The price was fair, not great and if the mouse was sized properly the operation would be OK but not great. The buttons are not crisp like prior model Logitech mice. This is another Chinese reject model.

Cons: This is a SMALL mouse and does not fit your and properly unless you have a very small child sized hand. As such you can only operate it with your fingers, not with your palm or forehand as intended by design for mice.

Other Thoughts: Do NOT buy this mouse unless you want an undersized mouse for a very small hand.

ASRock FM2A88X+ BTC FM2+ AMD A88X (Bolton D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is a nice quality AMD mobo. Asrock has really upped their game in the past five years and IME their mobos are as good as any mobo being sold to consumers.

This board is packed with all the latest goodies and cheap as dirt compared to most other mobos. Asrock uses top quality components and mobo designs which makes for excellent performance and reliability IME.

Cons: It takes more than a owner's manual to properly install a mobo and build a reliable PC.

Four year college degrees in PC building aren't included.

Other Thoughts: Not everyone has the technical expertise to be building a modern PC and to set all of the BIOS settings correctly to enjoy P95 stability. As a result you read reviews where people falsely believe the new mobo they just bought is DOA when in fact it is not. Every single mobo is tested before it is boxed and shipped so unless there is obvious physical damage to the mobo, any problems are usually installation and BIOS issues, not a defective mobo.

Some folks would be better served to have a pro build them a PC or buy a Dell. That's the truth unfortunately. Most of the open box goods for sale were returned by PC enthusiasts who lack the skills to properly assemble a PC. They just keep guessing and sending perfectly good, new products back to Newegg because they don't have the knowledge to figure out what they are doing wrong.

XIGMATEK Aegir SD128264 Mega Killer Double HDT 120mm Long Life Bearing CPU Cooler Dual Fan LGA 2011 I7 i5 775 1155 1156 1150 Haswell and AMD compatible
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I hope Xigmatek beings the Aegir SD128264 back to the U.S. as they claim it is still available in some other markets.

I have used this HSF on an overclocked FX-8350 running @ 4.7 GHz. 24/7 for well over a year and it is by far one of the best HSFs ever offered for sale. Independent scientific cooler performance testing by numerous reputable industry sources confirm this. Needless to say it out performs most closed loop liquid coolers also while costing only a fraction of the price.

Newegg's price was running around $60 before they sold out. That's a very good price for a top of the line tower cooler that can handle seriously overclocked FX processors. Most of the other top HSFs are in the $80-$100 range.

Cons: Not many cons to mention other than Xigmatek's e-mail response is very slow. The product itself is top quality however and highly recommended if you can find it. Lack of current availability in the U.S. would definitely be a "con" though.

Other Thoughts: A lot of technically challenged people have been duped into buying closed loop liquid coolers because they haven't bothered to actually check CPU cooler test data to see how poor most closed loop coolers are in comparison to a quality tower HSF.

What's really amazing to me is the people who pay more for a closed loop liquid cooler and end up with an inferior cooler over a lower cost HSF. Why would any educated person do that? The other issue that strikes me as down right technically ignorant is introducing a liquid cooler inside a PC for cooling purposes when a HSF works as good or better, costs less, is as quiet or better and a HSF never leaks coolant to damage PC hardware as liquid coolers have been documented to do. If you haven't read owner comments at the liquid cooler forums like Corsair, do yourself a favor and educate yourself.

It's a shame how many people are easily deceived by advertising hype and that they never stop to check the facts until after they have a significant issue with a poorly designed product.
