This review is from: Antec Accent Lighting - Red
Pros: Great Little Light Strip. I have two of these inside my tower for case lighting. One running across the top, another at the bottom.
+Prefect Length to run Front-to-Back or Top-to-Bottom in your Case
+Sticky back Adhesive for mounting in case
+Can be Cut to Length (if needed)
+Thin size makes it easy to hide in Case
+Powered buy USB
+Long Power Cable
I know some people have complained about it being powered by USB when using for case lighting. However, my MB had a USB 2.0 plug on the MB. However, if it did not the wire is more than long enough that you could remove one of your unused expansion slot covers, run the wire out from of your case through the expansion slot and plug into the back of your MB.
Cons: As I stated I bought (2) of these, one from Newegg, then I wanted a second and saw them at a local vendor for only a few dollars more, so my instant gratification kicked in and I bought it one the spot.
In both cases the paper covering the adhesive strip is a PAIN to remove. It would start to peel easy and then tear, or half would continue to peel while the other half remained stuck the the strip. I would attempt to start removing the backing again, and sometimes I would pull a small (very small) amount of the adhesive off.
Maybe I got old ones that had been long forgotten about in a warehouse, but the paper backing was a pain on both strips.
This review is from: APEVIA CVTUSBE25 11" USB Extension Cable for a standard USB motherboard connector
Pros: Hard to Find item, for a reasonable price anyway, but finally found it here on Newegg. I found similar items on other websites, but one cable was $14.99 + $5-$10 for shipping!
I have been building high-end gaming PC's for years. Like most high PC builders I like to run my wires as neatly as possible, routing wires behind the MB tray for aesthetic and air flow purposes.
However, the USB 2.0 Header cables from your Front Panel are almost always too short to hide. Usually they are forced to run right across your side widow, messing up your pretty organization and hard work.
Then comes the APEVIA Extension Cable and BAM! Problem solved. I bought (1) of these for my Front Panel, then after seeing how well it worked I bough a few more to have spares.
Other Thoughts: Buy them, you will need themREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Someone who does not know what he is talking about has been bad mouthing this board. This is a fine board. I only posted this because I am tired of seeing people who clearly do not know what they are talking about giving negative reviews about Newegg Products, their Vendors, and their Customer Service.
Cons: The board not doing 3-Way SLI is due to his CPU the i7-5820k. The i7-5820k only has 28-Lanes not 40! In order to do 3-Way SLI you MUST have a 40 Lane CPU, on ANY Motherboard. In other words, you need to spend the extra $200 (at a minimum) for the i7-5930k.
For someone who has been building high end systems for 15-20 years (one review of Chris M. said 15, another he said 20), he seems to have no idea how to look up hardware specs and properly pick hardware based on his wants/needs.
Before I built my $3.5k system I thoroughly researched ALL components to ensure they would work the way I wanted. I looked at the CPU specs, the MB specs, the Video Card specs...etc. I went to the websites of the Hardware Manufacturer and downloaded the manuals and read them cover to cover to ENSURE all components would work they way I wanted.
Chirs M. just because you failed to do this simple task DO NOT blame ASRock or Newegg for your failures. DO NOT try to build a high end gaming system on the cheap and then complain when it does not work. If you wanted 3-Way SLI at 16x you needed to buy the i7-5930k and a $400-$500 Motherboard - doesn't matter who makes it.
A true high-end gaming system that works as needed/intended is listed below. Better luck next time Chris M. Maybe you will learn from this experience, but I doubt it. You will just continue to blame everyone but yourself.
