Great CPU5/7/2021 5:01:58 PM

Pros: Works Fast Decent temps

Cons: Just can't get a temp reading on SteelSeries Engine System Monitor

Overall Review: This processor works as described so far. It seems pretty fast and I can see the difference in the 9th gen compared to this. However, the difference is not that high. At first I was having troubles with this CPU because it wasn't working with a Z490 board. That's because you need to update those boards bios' with a 10th Gen. On a Z590 board it works right out of the box. Most of my games are running on High/Ultra never dipping below 60FPS. This is paired with a RTX 2070 Super, 32GB of RAM @4000MHz and WD Black 1TB M.2 SSD. On idle the temps aren't too high like the 9th gen series. I know I shouldn't really mention price but I do feel Intel's CPUs are slightly overpriced but I guess that's because you truly get what you pay for.

Good Cooling5/2/2021 10:10:21 AM

Pros: RGB Works Sleek Design Airflow RGB controller

Cons: None

Overall Review: So far this CPU cooler is doing it's job. I haven't seen temps go past 65C so far during gaming. Definitely a high quality cooler in my opinion. The RGB is nice and having a controller is nice as well for those who don't have the motherboard pins. The controller is neat to use but you kind of have to leave it inside the PC tower. So really pick your color or effect and just leave it. Which is kind of a downside. Not sure if there is software, I did check but it claims my product isn't supported. I think it might work with Mystic Light Sync but I haven't tried it yet. Either way the product is good and pretty top notch on cooling.

Works but has some BSODs5/2/2021 10:00:33 AM

Pros: RGB Design Speed

Cons: Has some BSODs

Overall Review: The product doesn't work when just setting the XMP to automatic. At least for me. At first I couldn't get the speed I wanted, but once I tried different timings and etc, I finally got it to get to 4000MHz. Not sure if this is because this is a fairly new board and CPU. I should have checked their website. This product is not on the QVL for Z590-A Pro. But it still works so far. The only two speeds I can get this working at on the Z590-A Pro is 3200 CL16 and 4000 CL19. Any other speed or doing just an automatic XMP causes a BSOD. I still think the RAM is probably faulty to some degree since it also caused an issue on a previous board. Overall it's an okay product but has some issues, I'd definitely check the QVL for your board, before purchasing this.

Manufacturer Response:
. Hi Kane We can surely help with this issue. First, check to see if you have the latest BIOS for the motherboard as updates may improve compatibility. For two modules, make sure to populate them in slots A2 B2, the second and fourth slots away from the CPU. To troubleshoot the RAM, test each individually to see if both have the same maximum results. If one performs differently, send them in for RMA. Should you continue to have a problem or any questions, please feel free to contact us directly. Thank you for choosing G.SKILL Quality and customer service are our top priorities.

Love it4/30/2021 12:21:44 PM

Pros: Nice Design Sleek Connections Power Accessories

Cons: None

Overall Review: So far this PSU is working as it's suppose to. I like the design and love most of all MSI's products to be honest. I like how you can connect only what you need to on the PSU for the board or your peripherals or etc. The carrying bag is a nice touch, I mean I highly doubt I'll be using the carrying bag to literally travel with the PSU but it's nice to put all the unused cords inside the bag, as well as other items. That's basically what I'm using the bag for. I also love the color of the actual cords, which is black. Definitely a good purchase in my opinion.

Big Tower4/29/2021 9:17:06 PM

Pros: Roomy Nice design Removeable dust filters Lots of USB ports Multiple AIO setups. Decent cooling

Cons: Size can be an issue Fan speed only has two settings

Overall Review: This tower is pretty big and has enough room to fit in multiple fans and bigger AIO setups. The design is nice and sleek. I like how the side is basically glass? I think it might be plastic, I don't know for sure though. Either way it's nice to be able to see all the pretty colors inside, if you have RGB. The fan speed is nice but it would have been better with more than just 2 options, such as high and low. There's also one more setting just to turn off the fan's blue LED lights. It's a nice case considering the brand. It's also nice how you can remove the dust filters for easy clean up of the fans or the dust filter. At the back of the case, you can set up multiple fans into this like fan hub, which is nice. You can put fans in there and I assume it also adjusts their speed as well. There are plenty of USB ports on the top of the case. I did encounter an error with this tower though, at least one time. It appears that when plugging in more then one item in the USB port on the top, it can cause some weird issue. For example, I had a 360 controller plugged in and my iPhone cord. The 360 controller started experiencing issues, until I unplugged the iPhone. This only happened once, so I'm not too sure. For a brand such as Rosewill, they delivered quite well on this PC case.

Great Cooling4/24/2021 6:49:32 PM

Pros: Simple/sleek Great cooling Price Nice fan Decent Tubes Lots of tools to work with (for different setups) Came with thermal paste Instructions were simple enough

Cons: Installation took a bit Flexibility Might not fit your case

Overall Review: It took me a little bit to install it. So If you're not experienced with this sort of thing, it might take awhile to install. It was fairly easy in my opinion. The only thing I don't like is how the tubes are not that flexible. Not much wiggle room if you know that I mean lol. Other than that the product works great so far. It definitely does an awesome job at cooling my CPU. So far on idle/desktop I'm getting like 28-33C. Before when I was using my Intel stock cooler I was getting roughly 38-42C just on my desktop! (I think it was near it's end though). It was also giving me like 90C in CSGO. With this installed so far I haven't not seen it go past 50C. I would definitely recommend this to someone. I'll keep an eye on it since I haven't used it that much but if anything changes with the product, I'll change my review. Edit: After about 3 years. Temps are jumping up higher now. I think this cooler is about to go. I knocked down an egg for that.

Pros: Works Decent Colours Decent Size Sleek Looking No Dead Pixels (Yet)

Cons: Too Bright at times Not Enough OSD options Speakers are inaudible.

Overall Review: I purchased this to replace a monitor I bought from a different company. This one definitely outshines the last product that I purchased. There's no dead pixels as of yet and the colour is pretty decent. The only downside of this product so far, for me. Is that there is no more OSD options. I also noticed it can have weird lighting on a black background. Also around the top, bottom, left and right sides of the screen, I noticed it's a lil brighter than the rest of the screens. It can be noticeable on certain colours, not a huge issue. I'm pretty sure most LED/LCD monitors have this problem. I seen people complaining about the speakers, but I don't really care about that because I use a headset. The monitor can be really bright, you have to literally turn the brightness and contrast down to like 30. Overall this is a decent product and I'll be sure to purchase more of Acer. If anything changes with the product later on, I'll change the review.

Pros: Decent Size

Cons: Everything Scratches too Easy Useless Stickers Dead/Bright Pixels

Overall Review: This product was originally good in my opinion, but that changed quickly. I'm very disappointed in this product and regret purchasing it. I've literally wrote 3 reviews and they keep getting deleted. I guess someone doesn't want me telling people to stay away from this product. The product looked nice and great when I first received it. After a bit of use there are now 2 bright pixels adjacent to each other at the bottom left of my screen. There is also one black dead pixel at the top right. This isn't considered defective and it needs to be 3 adjacent to each other or 5 in total. I don't think I can get a refund for this from Newegg either because I had removed the sticker and thus scratched the trim pretty bad. That as well, even with a microfiber cloth it still scratches very easily. The stickers are really pointless and I don't know why any company would put a sticker on their product. I wanted to save a few extra bucks but clearly that was a mistake. I literally just might keep this as a back up and buy a different brand.

Pros: Sleek Looking Keyboard is a nice size The Mouse looks nice Keyboard looks nice Connection seems to be great Love the way the keys feel

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this to someone. So far everything is working and it's working pretty good. The wireless connection between mouse and keyboard is very stable. The keyboard is working great and so is the mouse. I wish the mouse had a bigger palm part. Maybe it's because I'm not use to it yet, I've been using a different one for like a few years. I'm sure I'll manage to get use to it. I love the way the keys feel and they aren't super loud either when you're typing. If anything changes with the product, I'll change my review.

Pros: Easy to Set up. Decent sound quality. Sleek looking. Black color. Detachable microphone. Comfortable

Cons: Microphone had no drivers, it's using the Realtek or the HD Audio drivers. BlasterX Acoustic Engine lacks customization. Sound quality is ok for music, but not the best. No 3.55mm to USB Adapter

Overall Review: I have always purchased Creative/Sound Blaster because they have always surpassed other companies that I've tried. Especially on the music front. The previous headphones I had before this, were the 3D Tactic Fury. Creative use to always seem to deliver on their products for all types of creativity. whether that was playing games, creating music or just listening to it. It seems with these headphones it's mostly tailored strictly to games. which is not a bad thing, don't get me wrong. I just wish these headphones packed that extra punch on the music front of things. I played CSGO with these headphones and it really helped me pin point where the enemy team was, so that's good. I only tried out CSGO, but I assume other games will suffice just as well. These headphones are nice, they fit very well, they're comfortable. They do not strain or hurt my ears/head like other headphones do/did, they are very lightweight. Black is my favorite color, so that's always a plus. However I do not think they are worth the current price tag that's being thrown at us. BlasterX Acoustic Engine is a good program, I like it. It's like the same type of program they had for the 3D Tatic Fury. The only downside of BlasterX Acoustic Engine is that it lacks customization. This is a no no, custom profiles is a must, I want to be able to adjust my Crystalizer, Surround and Bass the way I want it. Not the way you guys want me to. Yet again, this is a big no no, I hope this gets fixed in a new update. Overall I would recommend this product, although I don't know if it's worth the current price tag, if money isn't an issue, go ahead and get this. If you want a little better, then I'd suggest maybe getting an H5, I assume it would be better performance overall.

Bad support for 11th Gen4/8/2021 10:46:32 AM

Pros: It worked I guess

Cons: It didnt fully recognize the CPU

Overall Review: The board itself is probably great. But if youre getting this to upgrade to the 11th gen. It wont work unless you update the BIOS. But you need a compatible CPU to do that. So coming from a 9th gen, you cant. If you have a 10th gen, youd be able to do so. MSI and Intel should be stating this on their pages. So should Newegg.

It's a Mousepad11/30/2017 5:47:41 PM

Pros: It does what it's suppose to do Looks Nice Feels Nice Doesn't Slip Mouse Feels Nice on it Nice Design

Cons: Hate how it comes rolled and doesn't lay flat, until some weight gets applied to it. I'm sure they do this with like every single mouse pad and I don't understand why.

Overall Review: It's a good mouse pad for the price. It does what it's suppose to do and the mouse slides nicely across the pad. Feels decently soft on my hand/wrist as well. It doesn't slip at all on my glass desk. It's a decent size for small and fits perfectly where I want it. I'd definitely recommend this product to someone.

Great Hardware, Decent Price4/1/2016 7:34:44 PM

Pros: Runs all my games on Ultra or Very High at good frames. using a 40" monitor/TV. Runs Quiet Sleek Looking Fast Nice GPU, looks like a beast. assembled by MSI Good Fans Colored Fans

Cons: No SLI Support 8GB - i guess that's plenty of RAM, but i would have preferred 16. The Power button was a little hard to find, maybe it was cause i was in the dark, i don't know.

Overall Review: So far, there's not much wrong about this PC, it's doing what it's suppose to do, running games great for me at 1080p. I've only had the PC for a couple of days now, so if anything changes, ill re-write the review. One downside of this PC was the fact that it didn't support SLI, the motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3. you'd think since they were promoting Nvidia in this system, that they'd actually support SLI. Nope, only Crossfire. I wanted more RAM, but i rather save a few bucks and stick with 8, buy the rest later. another thing i didn't know, which isn't a huge issue, is the GPU is overclocked. since the site doesn't tell you what hardware is exactly inside the PC, here you go. - RAM is 1x8GB Adata XPG Z1 DDR4 - GPU is assembled by MSI (GEFORCE GTX 970 4GD5T OC) - Motherboard is Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3p - HDD is Western Digital

Overall Review: bought it, it worked good at first, then all of a sudden, it started to disconnect my internet, cut in and out. eventually it just fried, it doesn't even work anymore. won't even connect to wireless or through the Ethernet ports. it did work good......when it worked. i didn't ask for an RMA. rather try a different company/product.

Good Gaming Laptop1/17/2015 5:05:23 PM

Pros: illuminated Keyboard Keyboard feels nice, track pad is nice as well. Sound is pretty good considering its a laptop So Far my games run pretty smooth on high/ultra, at decent frames Cool Hot Keys Customize able keys and colors Decent Screen Size Nice Sleek Look, loving the brushed metal. 5 USB Ports Not that heavy, at least i don't think so

Cons: Webcam isn't so great, but then again im not using it in awesome lightning. but it is a gaming laptop, so who really cares about a webcam. So far my screen seems to....have a weird vibrancy during certain colors, especially gray. Battery life does die pretty quick on performance option. can get pretty hot at times where the GPU is located. fan can get loud but audio sounds kind of overpowers it, and if ur wearing headphones, u wont even hear it.

Overall Review: Overall id say this is a pretty good gaming laptop, although the battery can drain pretty quick during intense gaming, you can just plug it in while you're gaming. cause when the battery starts to drop, so does your frame rate. i only owned this product for maybe about a week or more. so if i encounter any major problems, ill re-write another review. also the picture that is displayed for this product is wrong, search up the product on Google, or go to MSI's website and you'll see the exact model. i was kinda disappointed about that, but im actually impressed how this one looks. Also not a huge fan of Windows 8, i prefer windows 7, but i am getting use to it.

RMA'd9/10/2013 8:13:26 PM

Pros: was comfortable around my head, and fit nicely. sound was ok

Cons: RMA'd due to the fact that the extension cord that came with it, was broken/defective. when using the extension cord, the sound only worked through one ear, and the mic did not work at all. just plugging it in without the extension, both speakers worked. but the audio wasn't too great for the price of these headphones. also im sure the mic didn't work unless you had the extension cord. Note: i was looking to replace my Creative 3D Rage headset. because that headset has a problem with its micro USB. connecting and disconnecting and eventually dying on you. the only headset i ever used from Razer was the Kraken, and that's a good headset. guess ima stick with Creative Labs. since to me, their quality of audio outshines most competitors. this time ill go wireless lol

Pros: Good, When it was Working

Cons: RMA'd

Overall Review: well this awesome headset was working fine, as u can see in my previous review. but all of a sudden it just stopped working as if it just blew a fuse or something. would eventually connect and disconnect on its own. (the cord obv). and cut in and out. and now eventually it just stopped working. windows does not recognize it anymore when its plugged in. infact. it doesn't even say anythings plugged in. i requested an RMA for a replacement. well see how the replacement goes and if i just got one bad apple out of the bunch. will place a new review after RMA is processed.

Pros: Works, Fast, Sleek, Fairly Quiet, Fan Control

Cons: Tower is Huge, Lil bit of a Hum Sound

Overall Review: THE TOWER IS HUGE. I'm surprised i had enough room in the space i was putting it. that's about the only thing wrong this PC thus far that Ive noticed. when i first got the PC. the video card seemed to be not working, until i realized it wasn't correctly plugged in. after that, the EVGA GTX 560 worked without problems. all my hardware works without problems. my PC boots up pretty fast. and so far the games Ive played run smoothly. the PC is pretty quiet although there is a little hum sound, but i still love it. i only had it for like 4 days or so. so ill post a new review if things change.
