Pros: Nice looking board. I'm sure this is a great board for a standard user but if you ever plan on overclocking go with something else.
Cons: This board is advertised as "a great overclocking board" but, in fact, has very limited overclocking options in the BIOS specifically NO LOAD LINE CALIBRATION which is a total deal breaker. Not going to be dealing with vdroop issues for the next 5 years anfter shelling out for i7-6700K. Fortunately I discovered this before building my new system and I am RMAing immediately.
Overall Review: MSI is definitely shady in their advertising and publicity and they just cost me the return shipping for this product. I will never purchase an MSI product again. Going to buy a trusty ASUS mobo right now!
Cons: Controller didn't work when I received it - RMA
Pros: All the boom booms and rat a tat tat tats stopped coming out of the front hetphone jack on my puter so I bought this little gizmo from NewEgg. Just plug this little guy into the USB port and BOOM sound! It was completely brainless a complete idiot could use it as it is totally plug 'N' play.
Cons: Can't plug them into other non-computer places and make sound come out of it :(
Overall Review: Definitely beats having your little brother sit by the computer and try to have him dictate what he thinks the sound should sound like
Pros: Display is aesthetically very sharp, thin bezel, glossy finish overall very well designed. LED backlight display is bright and crisp requires little or no adjustment of colors/brightness.
Cons: No VESA mount so this will have to be desk mounted for life...unless you're me and you laser cut an acrylic wall mount that mates with the existing mount neck. Came with dead pixel, RMA, $11.40 shipping return negated $10 instant discount. The display comes in the manufacturers box not the additional NewEgg.com packaging and all 8 corners of the box were wet and damaged. Not sure if the rough handling could have contributed to dead pixel/RMA.
Overall Review: Docked one egg more for the need for RMA (specifically paying for the return shipping) than the actual product, if I would have gotten this with no dead pixel, I would have given it 5.
Pros: Runs fast, looks cool.
Cons: A little loud when you get 'er goin.
Pros: It's RAM, it works.
Cons: With ASUS P7P55-D PRO board the correct timings are not recognized and you have to go in and manualy select X.M.S. profile. Next time I am going to only use RAM from the approved list provided by the board manufacturer.
