ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Excellent Quality
Heat Resistant

Cons: Very Long Startup Time (Logo Flash Twice)
Suspicious Hardware Communication Problem (Video Card Blue Tinted with Multicolor Streak)
Resume From Sleep Make The Computer Feeling Groggy For Few Seconds

Other Thoughts: I don't know if I want to blame this motherboard but got two hardwares that giving me problem, video card and sound card. Resuming from sleep will send lagged audio sound making this computer feeling groggy for a few moment.

Have video problem when playing video on YouTube in full screen that would cause blue tinted color with multistreak.

Who do I blame? video card? sound card? OR motherboard? Please get with your engineer team and figure out?

I am using a GTX N560 MSI video card with X-Fi Soundblaster FaTal1ty model sound card. Note: My front lights of the sound card no longer light up.

Motherboard's model logo should never be flash more than 2 times, and the startup time is LONG for more than 2 minutes. Computer running AMD FX 8 Cores with 16GB memory follow by a giant Cooler Master brand CPU heatsink resting on the processor. Computer's temperture is stable and remain cool at all time.

MSI GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) DirectX 11 N560GTX Twin Frozr II/OC 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: High Definition
Capable Of Resisting Heat
Have A Great Potential For More Performance Vs. Cost

Cons: Terrible GPU Processing

Will Crash When Playing Most YouTube or Suitable Adobe

Flash Player In Full Screen Mode Causing Tinted Blue And Multicolor Streaks Freezing The Computer To Halt

Other Thoughts: I know this is my second time of buying MSI brand video card, but this is riduculous.

I have played MW3 and BF3 fine with this video card, MSI N560GTX but don't get me wrong. It still have flaws relating to playing Adobe Flash Player videos from YouTube at full screen yielding to blue tinted color with multicolor streak. This sometime can be a problem while playing Minecraft which savor GPU more. Speaking of Minecraft, I get a very lagging feeling in Normal world in Minecraft let alone attempting to try Second Life in default viewer.

If MSI can send me another MSI N560GTX as a loan with the use of credit card on file, I can be happy to return this back to them and prove myself wrong and stand corrected. For me to return this back without using any dedicated graphic is shameful let alone having people that read this review feeling too ill to buy risky model.

2 out of 5 eggs 3 Months Field Test 3D Sigma Headset 09/01/2012

This review is from: Creative 70GH014000002 3.5mm / USB2.0 Connector Circumaural Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Sigma Headset

Pros: Excellent Quality Audio
Comfortable Leather Earmuff
Very Lightweighted

Cons: Ribbon Cord Can Still Tangle
Cord Aren't Resistant To Minor Damage
Earmuff Fell Off And Difficult To Put Back On
Microphone Foam Piece Got Loose And Can't Stay On
Sub-Par 3D USB Audio Included Works Terribly

Other Thoughts: Earmuff was tapped to my headset after several attempt to put it back on. Why is it difficult to put back on let alone fall off?

The box said that cord don't tangle but that more of a marketing ploy. They should use better chemical mix with rubber to prevent tangleness.

I wasn't sure if it cost more because they included a 3D USB audio, but this belong in the trashcan. They don't perform fast enough to process audio and will crash.

How does this headset worth $80's is beyound me.
