Pros: It seems like we've been hearing about all this great new tech coming to the PC industry for awhile now, but it's been slow to be combined into one package. Well, now with this motherboard you can build a new computer and not worry about missing something cool coming down the line. You're getting:
- DDR4 RAM
- M.2 SSD's
- Intel Skylake CPU's
- USB 3 Type C connectors
This really does have it all when it comes to fresh to the market, brand spanking new tech. And it works great together with Windows 10 with top notch BIOS and driver support you've come to expect from Gigabyte.
With the resurgence in PC gaming, we've seen just monster GPU's being launched and the new PCIe strengthening bracket is awesome! There's nothing more worrying than having your $600 GPU feeling not so secure, especially if you're taking your rig to a LAN.
I am so impressed with Gigabyte that I actually turned this test board into my daily driver and retired my older PC (also a Gigabyte board...see a trend here?).
Cons: Because there is so much new tech on this board, be prepared to check for BIOS updates regularly. This is the price to pay when you're an early adopter. Luckily I haven't encountered any deal breaking bugs or issues, but I still keep updated to make sure it stays that way.
The most recent BIOS update includes better compatibility with RAM and M.2 SSD vendors.

Pros: Corsair has been at the top of their game concerning PSU's for awhile now. Look at any extremely high end rig build and 9 times out of 10 they are using a Corsair unit. When you have hundreds to thousands of dollars in computer hardware, the last thing you want is to skimp on a power supply and fry something. If the professionals trust Corsair with their cash, so can you.
I have had 4 different Corsair unit's in the last few years and EVERY single one is solid as a dang rock. You get stylish design, a stellar warranty, and fully modular capability. The PC industry is in the middle of another Golden Era. Now more than ever manufacturers are trying to one up each other with hardware that not only looks great for all those cases with windows and LED lighting, but performs as you would expect or beyond.
Cons: None whatsoever. The packaging is right, the build quality is top notch, and the warranty (like you'll need it.I never have after years of continuous use) will keep you worry free.
Other Thoughts: Unlike some other computer components you can save a few bucks on by going with the cheaper route, a solid and quality power supply is never one of those things. Ever.
If you want something that you know will work out of the box don't bother looking at another brand, just find the appropriate wattage and click add to cart.
*full disclosure - I was offered this unit for review purposes. I have however, purchased many corsair units for personal builds and am using an older AX 850 for the last 4 years with 0 complaints*
This review is from: Rosewill Electronic High Precision "Stain Gauge" Sensor Kitchen Scale, Silver
Pros: Do you know how much a banana weighs? What about a TV remote control? Well you would if you had one of these. The first thing I did upon opening the package was what anyone probably does (i hope i'm not the only one) with a new scale, I weighed everything within arms reach. Food and non-food items alike got tossed on this bad boy with sweet LED lighting and it worked flawlessly up to 11 lbs (it's cut off).
This would be the perfect kitchen addition for someone trying to control their weight by knowing exactly how much of one thing is going into your meals. If a meal plan tells you to put 4oz of chicken into your lunch for work, you can do it with exactness like never before.
Another review below said he uses it in his office to weigh mail they send out so it has non-food uses as well.
Cons: If you're buying this to use as an inexpensive but accurate scale up to 11 lbs then you will not see any cons. It's a no frills yet stylish package that will work just fine.
Other Thoughts: It blends really well into my kitchen counter tops that I don't even notice it anymore unless I go looking for it.READ FULL REVIEW
