All Smooth, 1 Small Slice Tho
Pros: Well I cannot say what has not been said. The board is clean! I love the "e" on the northbridge that pulses red like a heart. This is the kind of motherboard to have inside a case with a window (haf here!) -- Just an all around great board.
Cons: Man I hate to knock off 1 star for this but I must... But I believe my DIMM slot 3 is dead. I kept getting the whole "Windows has 24 GB of Ram Installed but only (16 Usable) -- I try to put a stick in slot 1, cool, try in slot 1 and 2, still 4gb of ram (even tho windows sees it installed) Now this isnt a huge deal, I just happened to be the guy who lived in Hollywood and likes to do video stuff in very high resolution. BUT WAIT EVGA Customer Support is awesome.. so far.. getting it RMA and so far they been very cool. (hopefully they see this and approve it ha) -- Actually one time out of the 6 times I have called for basic questions while figuring out the dead DIMM they were busy, so I hit a few buttons and they called me back 5 min later. How cool?
Overall Review: I bought my GTX580 from EVGA and this Motherboard - Never bought any products from them, but I am impressed with this order
The Game Master
Pros: It's a graphical machine. I play COD Black Op's in the highest resolution and graphics setting possible and it runs as smooth as eggs. (Neweggs! ha) -- That's just the start of it. It play's 3D also very sharp. I believe this to be the best economical graphics card on the market. Anything as far as gaming to computer editing, this thing does it. I really do love it.
Cons: - When I first was installing it, it had to be in the motherboard just right to work, even though it was in right. Would just kind of have to wiggle it. Now this could be a case / MB fault, so no stars off from this. - I will take 1/2 star off because it has 1 mini HDMI and 2 DVI inputs on the card. You can run 2 monitors on it, but you will need another card and SLI it to hook a 3rd up. I believe this thing easily has the power to handle 3 monitors. Someone like me went and got another monitor, cables, etc to find out that it doesn't support 3 monitors even tho seems like the hardware is there. - Another 1/2 star because of the design. Has a VERY NICE graphic on the actual card. Problem is they design them that it's facing the bottom of the computer case. Now a lot of us have windows in our computer etc, this would look very nice if it showed it. When put into a case, to have it going out the back it faces the green part where the actual board is. At least make the board blue.
Overall Review: All in all, I would buy this card again. I feel like a new man with it.
Pros: This is exactly what you want in a CPU fan! If your a pro, then ditch your stock heat sink and load this bad boy in there. Your CPU will stay cooler than what's even a good temp. I recently went to a store to buy some RAM and a guy and me got talking. He asked me what fan I was using, I said Noctua. He just gave me a thumbs up and walked away.
Cons: A bit big, I have a big case (cooler master X) so I love it, fits in there and looks like a mean machine through the computer side window.
Overall Review: Would be cool to sell lighted exchangeable fans from Noctua. Or maybe they do?
Pros: Small, sleek, pretty, portable, and loud! These speakers took me by surprise. I assumed they were just portable speakers for an iPod, well I use it as my computers main speakers now. Looks slick with my Cooler Master Half x case with 7 other neon blue light. They sit right on top and match perfect.
Cons: Nothing. Maybe it would be cool if they had a light setting so you could control how the lights are displaying, but really no need. Very cool.
Overall Review: Another slick design by the Razer team!
