Pros: There is nothing bad to say about this case, it has everything you could ever want, including airflow.
This is my second Phanteks case.
I have owned a lot of cases in my time and this one tops them all.
Also Phanteks is a top notch company who are very helpful with missing parts or bad fans which I had one bad fan that they replaced without hesitation.
Cons: Only thing I can come up with as far as a con is, the little door covering the USB is tight and hard to open, it touches at the top and if not careful it will take paint off the door.
Overall Review: You cannot go wrong with Phanteks.
Pros: Yes, I mean that it is a value king if you consider the price point they are making here. This drive is faster than an HDD , I can tell no difference in boot times compared to say a Samsung 2 TB pro, the seconds difference is hardly noticeable.
For the price and the warranty I am liking it so far.
Cons: Not the fastest but it does what it was meant to do.
Pros: Easy to clean.
Cons: The main reason to buy a burr grinder is for consistency, the grind with this machine is flat out terrible, way to many fines and a lot of bolders too.
No way that I can see to adjust it.
Neweggs return policy makes it not worth returning because they will sock you with restocking fees even on a badly designed machine.
Pros: Lots of bios options
Cons: Major USB problems
Fan expert is garbage
Other fan software such as Corsair Link or iCUE will cause random shut downs on this board.
Temp monitoring software will do the same.
Overall Review: This is my first Asus board since the Formula V 3770K.. After that mess I swore id never buy another but I decided to take a chance.. I had returned my Gigabyte x470 Gaming 7 because I wanted more bios options and got this board, and it has haunted me ever since.
Pros: Seems faster than the traditional sata drives.
Cons: For some reason, Samsung Magician shows this brand new drive has written over 1 terabyte only after win 10 install, not sure why
Pros: Beautiful Board, vibrant RGB, REAL Heat Sincs, lot's of fan headers, dual bios
Cons: TERRIBLE BIOS, Plastic Audio Connections, no way to shut off WIFI
Overall Review: Let me say, this is the best looking board out there IMO, my last 5 MB's have been Gigabyte, and what small troubles I have had, Gigabyte promptly took care of it.. All that aside, I expected this new board to at least have an update bios compared to x370 but it don't, also the audio connections are plastic, and I mean ALL plastic, compared to the x370 which were very nice, these are total garbage, my speakers only pick up the left, if I jiggle the speaker wire it connects but it will not stay.. Tested the speaker wire on another system and it works fine, it is the board itself...
Also there is no way to shut off the WIFI in the bios.. Going to return this board and get the Asus instead which is very sad to me since I always liked Gigabyte but lately they seem to slipped into a money saving stage and it shows in their products.
Pros: Works great with Ryzen 1700 and the new Ryzen + above 3200 speeds, this is with a Gigabyte x370 gaming 5 and the gaming K7
Was flawless when I switched to a 2700x, XMP and off I went.. Love it
Cons: Only con is the size, I wanted to revert back to a tower cooler from an AIO but the heat sinc to tall..
Overall Review: I wonder if Team Group would exchange this for low profile memory?
Nah probably not.
Pros: Looks nice, powerful.
Cons: Needs an aftermarket cooler, I chose the Morpheus 2 for a cooler..
Overall Review: Because of Nvidias GPP program, and MSI sucking up and signing on to GPP , this will be my last MSI or Nvidia product I will ever buy.
Pros: Looks nice, well built!
3200 memory is not a problem
Cons: Board works ok, overclocks great.. BUT, overclocked it will run stable 24/7, but at every cold boot, I get an OC on the board display, but after I reboot it is fine after..
RGB stinks, the white lights look blue in my white NZXT case, fan control is another joke.
Overall Review: My last 4 board have been gigabyte with no real problems until now..
Pros: This board is completely stable with my 1700 @ 4050 and Ripjaw 2400 memory..
Cons: BUT I cannot recommend this or any ASROCK board for one simple reason, they are DEAD SLOW at releasing bios updates to fix RAM issues, were Gigabyte, ASUS and MSI have released many different bios to fix bugs and issues..
This will force me to sell this board and to go back to one of the big three brands.
Overall Review: If you plan on using high clocked memory then this board isn't for you, best I can do is 2400 with three different brands or 3000, 3200 and 2400..
Pros: Have had this card now since August 2016 when they were first released..Works great at every game and benchmark I throw at it, runs very cool..
Cons: My one and only complaint is the grinding noise when they fans start from a dead stop, it is very annoying and the only way to fix it is to set the fan curve so they never completely stop.. I have a ticket into Gigabyte now, see what they have to say..
Overall Review: In my opinion, the reviews you see here of "people" who claim to be pro's and claim this card overheats is just plain WRONG, they have ZERO idea what they are talking about of have ZERO concept of hardware in general..
Pros: Love the looks and the layout of this board, feels very sturdy and runs very well..Came from a Gygabye Z97 UDH5 BK.
Cons: As others have posted here the sound goes absolutely haywire and you get a metallic sound over the voice or over music, and it doesn't matter if you are wearing headphones or speakers..This totally ruins this MB in my opinion.
Creative has been making bad hardware for years now, sorry that Gigabyte used their chip on this board, turned a great board into a board you will have to spend more money on for a sound card..Gigabyte and Creative has had ample time to fix this issue.
Overall Review: NewEgg rocks as usual.
Pros: Close shave
Does the neck line very well
Cons: Cheaply built
If your beard is over a day long, it will pull or yank at hairs which is painful.
Does not hold a charge very long at all..The charger light never shuts off or blinks to indicate a full charge, stays on all the time when plugged in...
Overall Review: I wasn't going to do a review on this but I felt I needed to..
This razor has a very cheap feel to it, the so called floating heads are just pivots, the shave heads do not move other than the pivot points in the middle..
I bought this razor after looking at reviews online but I wish I had waited and just bought a new head for my old razor..Recommendation from me would be to steer clear of this !razor
Pros: Well, coming from an ASUS Formula V Z77 which is an awesome board @ 4.6 GHZ I can say I was sceptical of Gigabyte..I will say I didn't like the looks of this board at all but it is sturdy and well built..Once I got it in and all setup it looked quite good with my ASUS 660s in SLI but not as good as the ASUS board..After it booted I was horrified by the looks of the bios compared to the ASUS boards, this looked 1999 to me..No it isn't polished like ASUS but once I got it stable @ 4.6 GHZ I was quite pleased with it..The price is a huge plus, for the money you get a very stable platform for the 4790K..
Dual bios is very nice for them mistakes..
Newegg got it to me 3 days early, wasn't scheduled till the 14th..Thanks NewEgg!
Cons: No cons really other than the bios, but I am spoiled with using ASUS and it's polished BIOS interface..
Overall Review: The reason I didn't buy another ASUS board was because of all the horror stories about support so I took a chance on Gigabyte.
I would fully recommend this board..
Pros: Absolutely the best mouse I have ever owned, and I have owned some of the best mice on the market..
the feel is just awesome, the adjustable height is not a gimmick, it works nicely..Software seems nice too, it updated the firmware right off the bat and has plenty of options..The weights are a nice touch, I am still experimenting with the feel..
Cons: Cons are not really that bad, the smooth sides will show your finger prints and it will get dingy, but nothing a little alcohol and swab won't fix..Also the side buttons could be more forward, at least for my hand but may be just fine for you..The scroll wheel seems stiff for me, I like a wheel to roll freely, I am sure it will just take some getting use to..
Overall Review: Over all I am very happy with this purchase, and I know EVGA has awesome support..I fully recommend this mouse since it fits in both hands and is very well built..you won't be disappointed!
Pros: Absolutely wonderful, this thing will last forever..Great surface for a gaming mouse, nice and big, which I like in a mouse pad..
Aircraft aluminum grade, two different textures to choose from..
Price is higher than most but you get what you pay for!
Overall Review: It you have a small type desk, this may not be for you!
Pros: Been working fine for almost a year, use it most every day!
Cons: SLOW SLOW SLOW!
Don't expect blazing fast USB 3.0 speeds!
Overall Review: My biggest CON is of NewEgg itself, their support and the way they are packing their products has gone way down hill in the last year..Been using A.azon more often because of this.Been a customer of NewEgg for over 10 years but they seem to not care much anymore about good support like they use too!
Pros: Looked nice when it worked!
Cons: After having this thing since March,it has started to go to heck..Some lights are green while others are red or blue, and some lights quit working all together...This is the third product from NZXT I have bought,and this will be my last..I bought 4 fans from them and they all quit working within a month,and NZXT refuses to seal with it..I am sure I will have the same problem with this thing!
Pros: Looks nice!
Feels good while in use!
Cons: When the mouse is dead still,the curser jiggles all over my screen,makes it very tough to shoot when playing a game..Razer was no help at all,they said get a better mouse pad,I went through 5t different mouse pads and non made it better!
Overall Review: Took it apart,needed cleaning badly but still has same problems..Updating firmware and drivers made it even worse!
Pros: Ive had this light for 9 months or so..It is very bright and looks nice inside my Thor II case!
Newegg is still #1!
Cons: Adhesive velcro that comes with it is garbage,I used some 2 sided tape and it actually looks more uniform and neat!
Pros: Got these cards to replace my GTX 580 and I must say I am quite impressed..They are faster than a 680 and much cheaper..Overclocks very well above the factory overclock.
Looks very good with my ASUS Maximus Extreme IV.
People told me I would have problems with todays games with memory since they have 192 bus.but I have had no such problems..These stay very very cool with the fans on very low settings...
Game card was great too since I play WoT a lot.
Cons: The bundle ASUS gives you with their video cards is one adapter and the CD with the drivers..
Overall Review: This card in SLI is faster than 2 580s in SLI and faster than a single 680..
No micro stutter of any kind..Very satisfied..
And of course NewEgg is tops..
Pros: Was great for 3 years!
Cons: Right after warranty period ended it started flickering on cold starts and steadily got worse..It still works but game play is not smooth anymore and mouse movement is jittery..
Overall Review: I just purchased a 27 inch from Acer to replace it and the jittery mouse and smooth game play is back..
Sad to see they make these things to break soon after warranty is over.
Pros: Bought this unit in March of 2010 and it has been going stron ever since powering an ASUS Maximus 4 Extreme with a 2600K @ 4800MHZ-2 Corsair SSD's-3 backup drives-2 580GTX and 2 DVD burners.
Overall Review: Have had zero problems with my fan like so many others,in fact after I read all these negative comments I looked to make sure my fan was turning and all is great.
Pros: I have read all the negative reviews about this board and the USB 3 ports going out,but I can tell you my experience has been a very good one..
I got this board in March of 2011 right when the rev 3 came out and I have not looked back..Paired with a 2600K @ 4800mhz it has been flawless..
I did not want any part of ASUS before this board..My first p67 was an ASROCK Extreme 6 then the recall happened and the ASUS was the first board available and I am happy it was because it overclocks way better than the ASROCK board did..
Overall Review: The people who say they have a high tech experience with computers and then say this board is junk,you can plainly see they know nothing about computers..
Pros: This board has it all,recognized my 2133 memory with no problems,runs my 2600K at 5ghz with no sweat.has plenty of SATA 3 and 6 ports..
Previous poster does not know what he is talking about,there is no crapware on the disk..
Overall Review: There is no lights at all on this board,after it boots it is pitch black inside the case which I like...
