This review is from: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare for Mac [Online Game Code]
Pros: Works on Steam
PC AND MAC
Other Thoughts: I ordered this and got this the next morning!
Fast downloadable code on steam.
Even though it says only "MAC" it works on pc too. The company is also not sketchy, it's the main mac gaming portal for mac users!
Pros: Good Price
Amazing Performance (in the beginning)
Cons: Can't Overclock
Terrible voltage stability
Doesn't POST properly (sometimes I have to restart it many time for it to post)
Doesn't work anymore - after one year
Other Thoughts: I built this computer in the First week of September of 2012. It worked amazingly well, and fast. And it was my first computer build. My Specs:
Phenom II 965
Corsair 430watt PSU
8GB RipjawsX Ram
Aftermarket Heatsink... etc.
But anyways. This board worked well until November of 2012. I've noticed unstable voltages in my CPU. When at stock, it is set to autovoltage at 1.475v. This is a problem because the stock voltage of the Phenom II is 1.375-1.4v. When changing it lower to 1.375, the computer fails to boot into Windows. So I just kept it at 1.475v. After buying a custom heatsink to be able to overclock, I realized that I couldn't because the voltages were terrible.
Moving on, the board itself is very flimsy, and I heard some cracks while installing my ram. Very very terrifying.
Lastly, the board just died on me last week One week AFTER my 1 year warranty. It seems like the board was made to commit suicide after the warranty is over. Sadly, I can't send it in for repair because warranty is over, and it isn't worth it. I'd rather just buy a new motherboard from a much more reliable brand such as Asus, MSI, or even Gigabyte, because they have warranties that last 2-3 years.
Overall, get this board if you need it for a QUICK replacement, don't think that this will last a very long time. You don't have the freedom of doing many things as this restricts your power. No overclocking of CPU/GPU, terrible customer service, flimsy construction, etc.
Instead of paying 55 dollars on this, think about spending about 10-15 dollars more on a much more decent board, and one that has MORE THAN ONE YEAR WARRANTY.
Thanks for your time :)
This review is from: RAZER Sphex Gaming Grade Desktop Skin
Pros: 1. Super Thin
2. Looks pretty cool
4. Adhesive is great
5. Material feels great
6. Cheap, Affordable
7. Don't forget to remove the plastic wrap at the back. I tried to get it to stick on my desk for 10 minutes before I realized that you have to peel it off. LOL
Cons: 1. When held, you can wiggle it and it sounds like aluminum foil (womp womp)
Other Thoughts: When I opened this, I was surprised at how thin it was. Some other reviewers said that this wasn't a mouse "pad" but rather a "skin". Although there is no "padding" to it, the material feels like it's paper aligned with some godly divine overlay. I thought that there was no difference, but there is. Being a hardcore gamer, I felt the difference when playing Battlefield 3, Counter Strike GO, and other games. But, the best part about it was that it was cheap.
This was very durable, and has a nice feel. It's thin, and you'd think that it'd be easy to rip and mess up, but it's strong man.
Lastly, if the adhesive starts to dry out, just make sure to dust your tabletop and to wash the mouse pad with warm water and soap. This should make it sticky again!
