MSI H81M-P33 LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: 1. It's dirt cheap for running Haswell CPUs
2. It's dirt cheap for running Haswell Refresh CPUs

Cons: 1. The placement of the SATA ports could have been better. I have a large GPU (a PowerColor R9 290 PCS+) and the GPU blocks the 1st SATA port (which is the one of the only two SATA 3 ports on the board)

3. A large GPU will also block the CMOS battery and the CMOS jumper.

2. No USB 3.0 headers if you want to use a front panel I/O USB 3.0 ports

Other Thoughts: 1. Version 2 of this mobo is better designed, but unfortunately it wasn't available to purchase

2. This mobo is tiny for an mATX board. In fact it almost is an ITX board.

3. I don't know about others, but my mobo did not come with a CMOS jumper. It's not such a big deal because you can easily short the CMOS by pulling the battery, using a paper clip, or the USB jumpers, but I would have liked having a CMOS jumper.

4. I probably should have invested the extra $30-40 for a full-sized H97 ATX board, but I was on a hard budget and this was the only corner I could cut. This board still works fine though so that's why I gave it only 4 stars.

Seagate Expansion 1TB USB 3.0 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Came in super fast and is great 01/23/2015

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable External Hard Drive STBX1000101 Black

Pros: 1. Portable
2. 1TB
3. USB 3.0/2.0 compatible
4. Does not get hot when under heavy load unlike my WD portable HDD

Cons: None really, but see"other thoughts"

Other Thoughts: I kind of wish Seagate made their product registration more concise and their website easier to navigate. I registered the product, but I have no idea what it actually does because I don't know how to view my registered products at their website

CORSAIR CXM series CX600M 600W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: 600 watt (552 watt 12v Rail rating)
80 Plus Bronze
Reputable Brand
1 Year refurb warranty

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: The 24-pin ATX power supply cable and the CPU fan cables are not modular and very thick together, and since I am using an mATX case it makes cable management slightly more difficult. I am hoping the PSU will be able to power an R9 280X so I will update once I get my R9 280X (or something better that recommends a 750W PSU). I will also update this should the refurb CX600M fail within the 1 Year Warranty period, so no update = no failure :)
