Pros: Works, no drivers needed to be installed on my rig.
Cons: Estimated delivery time from Newegg is a drag.
Other Thoughts: A-Jazz mice get a lot of criticism for people having to go and find the drivers online. I ran into no such issues, all of the buttons on my new mouse work amazingly. The mouse also always glows, even when your computer is off, I can't list that as a pro because some people don't like it, but I can't list it as a con because it isn't one for me, but for gamers who sleep next to their PC, you might have to get used to plugging it in and out constantly. The only downside to purchasing off of Newegg is the wait time for international sellers. So just in case you aren't fully reading the shipping details, you've been warned here.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great when it works.
Cons: Came bundled with incompatible RAM. Random freezes.
Other Thoughts: First I received 2 4GB Ram and they were incompatible with the motherboard, I was lucky enough to find some I could use, but went from having dual channel to just a stick. That's fine the RAM was free and NewEgg was boss in their handling of the situation.
However, after about 2 months I started having random freezes on my computer when I would step away from it. The only thing I can do is manually shut it down. My friend redid all of the bios (same motherboard, so no biggy there) and the problems persist. We have tried all of my other components in his computer and they work just fine with no problems. The strangest thing as that the only time this happens is when I am on my desktop, once or twice in my browser, but never in games.
In short, after re-doing the bios, rebooting windows 7, and testing my hardware, the problem persists. When the motherboard was working it worked great, and despite the initial issues with the RAM was willing to give it an average review of 3-4 eggs.
After the more recent, deplorable experience I've had with this product all I can say is I'll "Deal With It" for a few more months since I have to save money to move. After that, ASRock won't have me as a customer anymore. The online troubleshooting is a joke. People with plenty of experience with their products were unable to assist me in fixing the issues and I haven't found anything online that hasn't already been attempted with this. To me, this was a waste of $109.00. I traded my dual channel ram for a single stick, and that's all I'll have to show for it when all is said and done.. The RAM would have been upgraded sooner or later anyways. This doesn't even start to detail some of the problems my friend has had with the audio on his! But as he has already left a review, I'll allow you to visit that one for more detail. I can confidently state that I am never purchasing an ASRock product again!
This review is from: ZALMAN ZM-Z9 U3 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: A lot of space. I can tell the temp.
Other Thoughts: Gotta love the fact that I can read the temperature on my PC easily. You can set it basically anywhere in your computer. I have to overclock my CPU (fx4300) slightly so it doesn't bottlneck my Radeon 7850 2GB. So I was able to slide it right next to my CPU to ensure it doesn't overheat.READ FULL REVIEW
