This review is from: MSI X99S MPOWER LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Board has been rock solid no issues so far with this board. I was an Asus fan for years until my last few purchases with them and the quality has gone down hill, Board is easy to setup and the quick boot options allow my PC to load fully into 8 with Raid 0 SSDs in like 6 secs from cold boot :)
Cons: Haven't found one yet...
Other Thoughts: Looks like MSI has a new fan boy!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Runs almost silent, currently running an Intel Core i7-5820K @4GHZ and even gaming encoding system stays around 50 C. I really like the water cooling system and I'm letting the MB handle throttling and my bed room doesnt get nearly as warm as my previous system which was Air cooled.
Cons: 1) Stripped the threads out of the casing around the radiator one one bolt hand tightening.... -1 Egg
2) The most important aspect of any cooling system is that it works. This unit will fail to initialize(power) the water pump when power the system on at random times. I've tried every possible way to connect even bypassing and going stright to the PSU same result. Luckily one can hear the pump running if you listen closely and it can be resolved by turn the system off and on again. Sometimes this takes up to 3 tries. This is the one thing about this system that has totally turned me against this product and I would not recommend it to anyone -2 Eggs Due to the fact you could totally burn out a cpu using this product....
Other Thoughts: I will replace this product at some point in the future at the moment I cant afford the cash or time to replace.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: AC wireless, guest network and the ability to segregated the wireless networks from the rest each other. You mostly see this in higher end routers. Easy straight forward setup. Had the device setup in like 15 minutes or less. I then updated the firmware which wiped all the settings. Flip side took less then 5 minutes to reset all my settings as they were saved in browser cash. Other Plus 2 USB 2.0 ports great for a printer and hard drive... Haven't tried that yet but as soon as i do i will update the review. Also this router has been up a week solid no reset.
Cons: Tenda's website was more difficult to navigate than it the routers interface(It's horrible in other words) As others have said setting the time zone on the device is horrible. The page is consistently refreshing every few seconds causing the settings to be set back to the default settings.(No fix for this with update btw so set it fast and save those settings before the page refreshes) Once its save it doesn't go back to default but still a little annoying to set that zone.
Other Thoughts: Great Deal on the router as it was on a daily special so I got it at a fraction of the regular price. If I would have had to pay full price would have considered a Asus or Netgear Nighthawk.READ FULL REVIEW
