1 out of 5 eggs How do you even screw this up? 09/23/2015

This review is from: Rosewill 6.5-Foot USB 2.0 A Male to Micro USB B (5-Pin) Cable, Black (RC-6-USB-AM-MB-BK)

Pros: It does charge my phone...

Cons: The plug isn't even the right size for the micro usb standard, it just loosely slides in to my phone and falls out, the whole reason I got a replacement to my old cable was so i could use my phone while it's charging and because of this I still can't and i'm stuck using my old cable.

Other Thoughts: How do you even screw up a cable?

MSI MSI Gaming Z97-G45 Gaming LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Was able to overclock to 5.0ghz for a few hours without temps getting too crazy. was pushing 1.55V at load on an i5. My daily overclock is 4.7 @ 1.35V the board stays nice and cool at load with a 440mhz switching frequency.
The board is gorgeous matches my build quite well.

Cons: Analog VRM's makes fine tuning a high overclock a PITA but if you up the switching frequency it compensates for it.
Really wish it had more fan headers but oh well splitters took care of that.

Other Thoughts: MSI would be the number one motherboard maker if it wasn't for the contract they made to use Analog VRMs back in the day, was a good deal then, really coming back to bite them now. However MSI has managed to do some crazy voodoo magic with digital compensation for the analog vrms to make it perform very well.

MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti DirectX 12 GTX 980TI GAMING 6G 6GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support ATX Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fans are whisper quiet at 100%
sexy backplate.
sexy everything.
tears through games
Running Witcher 3 at 2-3x ultra settings (via .ini tweaks on steroids) at 1440p using DSR at about 40 fps it looks like real life.
This card will last at least 3 years for me, maybe.

Cons: Not the best overclocker (for the 900 series, its fantastic overclocking generally speaking), only hits 1375 without added voltage can only get 7100 on the vram. I won't be bothering with added voltage till it's under water not enough thermal headroom.
Hit's above 80c fairly easily with the stock thermal paste application (with fans at 100%) and after two applications myself. finally got it to max out at 81c on the second application I guess that's good enough, my room is fairly warm though it's 80 F in the house.

Other Thoughts: I'm a bit of an AMD fanboy but the Fury X dropped the ball, doesn't have DVI-D (for Korean monitors which i plan to get one) and only beats the 980ti consistently at 4k which is cool and all but I'm not interested in 4k. Also the Fury doesn't overclock well compared to the 980ti which this model comes factory overclocked 25% then can be pushed farther past that.
got my card at $669 on release bought some McDonald's with the extra 10 bucks everyone else is gonna have to spend ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
This card has turned my Enthoo Luxe into a massive heatsink the whole back of it gets scolding hot.
My universal EK Thermosphere can't fit the card, the card is too wide by 1/4 an inch will have to get a new block, could have went reference and avoided this but MSI covers aftermarket cooling under warranty, the backplate is sexy, the vrms are overkill, and It's just an all around awesome card.
Will be incorporating this into my custom cooling loop once a block is released, it runs way too hot for my liking and should improve the overclocking headroom
would give this a 4 1/2 rating if it was an option.
