MSI X99A GodLike Gaming Carbon LGA 2011-v3 Intel X991/7/2017 11:48:55 PM

Pros: This board works great out of the box. I was able to overclock my 6850K to 4.0+ Ghz without any effort. My setup gives me 40 PCI lanes, Quad-channel memory @ 3200XMP, up to 128gb ram, good audio, Killer Nics, and two Nvidia cards in SLI. The board fits perfect in my Extended-ATX case (Cooler Master HAF-X). One of the big selling points for me was the SLI spacing between cards. Buy the cheaper MSI Gaming-Pro-Carbon, if you you don't want to run SLI. The spacing on the MSI-Gaming-Pro for SLI is horrible. The cards are stacked too close and suffocate the top card in SLI. This is NOT a problem with the MSI-Good-Like-Carbon mobo (2-card spacing)!!! Both of my GPUs run equally cool, and the system works flawlessly. My two GTX-1080 SLI cards never break above 70c on any game, with Max settings in 4K. I love it!!!

Cons: $$$$...... I still haven't figured out how to setup the Bluetooth, but it is gimmick, so who cares. You can change the colors of the Mobo on the desktop, so you don't need the bluetooth app. Documentation leaves something to be desired. I'm not a Noob, so it's not a huge deal.

Overall Review: I have a MSI GodLike Carbon Mobo, Intel 6850K, and two GTX-1080s in SLI. In theory you would be good with a 6700K, but if you have the extra cash, the 6850K is a good choice. I upgrade my PC every 8-10 years, so spending the extra money makes sense, for when Windows 11, 12, 13 are released. With this setup I have access up to 128GB of memory, two GPUs using 16X PCI-express lanes, and can Max-Out every current game on the market in 4K using the 1080s in SLI (The Witcher, Crysis 3, Doom, Battlefield 1, Skyrim, etc.) Yes this setup is over kill, but this CPU & MOBO will still be above average 5 years from now. I would recommend to others.

Works Great!12/23/2016 8:02:12 PM

Pros: I overclocked the processor to 4.0 GHz without an issue. I never tried pushing the O.C. any further, because it's seems excessive. It is stable at 4.0 GHz, but I have read reports of people OC'ing to 4.2 GHz and higher.

Cons: Price, but it is a good value. (stable at 4.0+ Ghz, 40 PCI express lanes, six cores, and cheaper than comparable CPUs with same specs).

Overall Review: I have a MSI GodLike Carbon Mobo, Intel 6850K, and two GTX-1080s in SLI. In theory you would be good with a 6700K, but if you have the extra cash, the 6850K is a good choice.

My eight year old i7-920 was keeping up with most games, but the 6850K is a good replacement with plenty of headroom. I would recommend to others.

Works great at 3200 XMP!12/23/2016 7:35:22 PM

Pros: Works great at 3200 XMP! I using this with a MSI GodLike Carbon.

Cons: none

Overall Review: Go to your motherboard's, or Corsair's website, and verify your memory is compatible with each other. If you do this, you will be happy with your purchase. This memory works perfectly out of the box like advertised, with no issues.

Great Cards!!!7/24/2016 10:41:24 PM

Pros: 1) It's an EVGA card 2) Great build and quality 3) RBG LEDs 4) SLI 1070-FTW and can max-out Crysis 3, BF4, and Skyrim with my old i7-920.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I would highly recommend this card. I don't like Newegg's lack of a return policy. But I wouldn't replace these cards.

Great so far9/19/2012 4:42:17 PM

Pros: Keep in mind, this is the first day of service for the Cisco EA6500 router in US market. The router works great out of the box. My wireless and wired download speeds went up from 17Mbps up to 22Mbps. The "upload" and "ping" were the same after upgrading. I used the CD that was provided (not necessary), but did and it worked fine. It walks you through the steps to register and create a Cisco Cloud account if you want. Cisco Cloud account is not required to control settings with the default firmware (thank you Cisco). All the apps work on my android devices (Samsung S3, and ASUS tablet).

Cons: The only Temporary con is: When you use the "priority device" list, it slows down your internet speed of all devices. Once you remove the device from the list, the problem is resolved. This is a firmware issue that will be fixed soon. I would still recommend this router.

Overall Review: This is a great upgrade from my old router (Belkin N-wireless router). So far, everything is working great.

okay9/25/2011 12:46:48 AM

Pros: I works.

Cons: It runs hot with a heavy load, and the power supply they sent me blows the hot air in to my case.

Overall Review: I know should RMA the power supply, because of the fan, but I don't want to go two weeks without a computer either.

Great Mouse for large hands6/22/2011 4:13:16 PM

Pros: This is a great mouse for large hands. I don't have a problem with the weight of the mouse (With/without wieghts). After a couple of hours of game, tweaks here and there, I finally found the perfect match!!! Finding the perfect match was fun because the options are limit-less. If I get tired of the feel of the mouse, I have more than three options/configuration like other mice. No regrets :)

Cons: None

Overall Review: Over all this mouse is great! Other than the perfect custom fit, I like that the braided cord that does NOT bunch up or drag on my desk like my old mouse. The mouse is not too heavy for me, but I like some resistence (30gram weights). Easy to program and use. The only issue, I wish I bought it sooner.

Great CPU6/19/2009 8:58:44 PM

Pros: This is a great CPU for the price, and has a lot of OC head room (4.0Ghz+++).

Cons: None....

Overall Review: This CPU deserves 5+++ eggs/stars. Best price, performance, and OC potential on the market. Using my Foxconn Bloodrage mobo, I easily OC the CPU to 4.0 Ghz, with the temps below 45c (stable), using a 850w power supply.

Great Board6/13/2009 1:20:12 AM

Pros: This board works great. The sound card is great!!!! COOL temps on the board, CPU, and NB (30-40c). The BIOS/TEMPS are better than my nvidia 780I-FTWin board.

Cons: I miss the nvidia chipset. (ntune, nmonitor)

Overall Review: This is a MUST buy. I bought this board for $249, while other boards in its class are $150 more. Plus, this is a performance ATX board. I have a Antec nine-hundred case and this is the best board that will fit. Some of the new X58 boards will not fit an average case, but this one does. This board will OC an Intel-920 above 4.0MHz++++

Great card4/19/2009 12:52:08 AM

Pros: I bought two of these cards and they work great! I have both cards installed, but only need to use one. These cards can handle any game on the market (SLI for Crysis). I can run both cards SLI with my Corsair TX850 without a problem.

Cons: NONE

Overall Review: Great cards. I am tempted to buy a third card, but I never use the second card, unless I am playing Crysis (1920x1200 on a 28"LCD).

I completely AGREE with these Comments!!!2/23/2009 7:28:41 PM

Pros: Pros: It reminds me of the Gran Turismo series which I loved on PS, PS2, but haven't tried on PS3. The graphics are incredible, very modern and light/reflections look awesome! The cars feel very smooth to drive, not too difficult , not too easy. Isn't totally simulator-like, which is what I enjoy. Damage is great, always something I missed in the GT 1-4 games. Gives you a good challenge, but is very enjoyable at the same time. It's compatible my Logitech DualAction gamepad(see Other thoughts). Cons: I stay up late playing it! My eyes are bugging out! Other Thoughts: For those who can't get their gamepad to work with this game, just do a web search for "gamepads that work with grid" or something similar. I found a gamespot forum topic that told me exactly what to do(can't remember my exact search). No problems after that. If you can't get it to work after that try to install a file from filefront. Just search for "any gamepad for Grid" it should be your first topic in the

Cons: You have to manually setup the Logitech Wheel to work with the game. When you are in the controller options, select manual, then hit "CTRL". I didn't look closely to the screen and wasted over a hour trying to figure this out. It might be my fault, but I know I'm not the first person with this problem. I think the menu options could have more contrast on the black screen. Like I said, it was my fault.

Overall Review: The Game is a lot like Grand Turismo on PS2. The main difference in my opinion is the custom cars. They have a good selection of cars to choice from in GRID, but you don't upgrade the cars or modify in great detail. I Love this game. Once you get the controls programmed, the sensitivity customized, this game is sweet!. I wasted a couple hours setting up the game, but now, I can't stop playing it. Buy a wheel/pad and enjoy. I have a Q9550, GTX260Black, Vista64 Ultimate, and get 60 fps with 1920x1200 on my 28" LCD monitor with the settings MAXED (16X++ settings). I have SLI-260's, but I was told that SLI is not supported???? IF YOU LIKED Grand Turismo racing, then you like this game. Example: if you can't slow down to make the corner, ram the other car, they'll brake your fall.

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!2/6/2009 3:27:45 AM

Pros: Normally, I wait to review a product, but this is a great deal!!!!! This is a great HD monitor for the price.

Cons: Having to use UPS for free shipping. Newegg is great, but the local UPS is a joke. My monitor box looked like it was hit with a forklift, then drop-kicked. Then I had to pick it up at will-call, and the office clerk dropped it in front of me. MY POINT IS: it is UPS-PROOF. It still works!!!

Overall Review: Over all, this is a great monitor. I don't think you'll find a better deal, considering the quality of the picture. Normally I wait to review, but I really like this deal. No dead Pixs. It is a must buy for all broke college students!!!

Cons: None

I LOVED DX-102/2/2009 11:02:24 PM

Pros: DX10 is beautiful! Vista is stable and reliable (SP1). To all the XP'ers, the coast is clear. Vista loads, runs, and looks better than XP. Microsoft did a good job with Vista.

Cons: none

Overall Review: I have an Intel Q9550, EVGA 780I-FTWin, Two XFX GTX260, G-Skill 800Mhz Black, Sound Blaster with X-ram, Corsair TX850watt, Antec-900 Air-cooled. (No Overclocking) DX10 is great!!!! I wish there were more games with DX10, but Crysis, CoD4, Fallout3 are SWEET!!!

Great CPU2/2/2009 10:51:40 PM

Pros: Good CPU. It handles every application/game I throw at it. I got this CPU up to 3.6mhz without a problem(aftermarket fan).

Cons: None

Overall Review: I have a Intel Q9550, EVGA 780I-FTWin, Two XFX GTX260, G-Skill 800Mhz Black, Sound Blaster with X-ram, Corsair TX850watt, Antec-900 Air-cooled. (No Overclocking) I can play Crysis MAXED out without a problem (16x, 8x, VeryHigh, 1440x900). The average temp for the CPU core after a couple hours of Crysis (Maxed) is 60C (Air-cooled, No OC). Vantage score is 15+ stock and 22+ OC'ed.

Great Cards2/2/2009 10:39:10 PM

Pros: I bought two of these card and love them. If you like playing Crysis these cards are great (30-60FPS @ 1440x900, with MAXED settings, 16xAA, 8X, VeryHigh). If these cards can tackle Crysis, then why waste money on more expensive cards? I can play CoD4 at 300+fps.... What else do you need???

Cons: None

Overall Review: I have a Intel Q9550, EVGA 780I-FTWin, Two XFX GTX260, G-Skill 800Mhz Black, Corsair TX850watt, Antec-900 Air-cooled. (No Overclocking) These cards idle in SLI around 37-43c Idle, and 55-60c under Maxed-Crysis LOAD after hours of use. My system never crashes, so the Crysis is over.

Good board2/2/2009 10:18:47 PM

Pros: This board is solid and stable. I won't repeat all the good things about this board. This is a good board if you are using DDR2 memory, Intel 775 CPU, and Nvidia SLI.

Cons: The truth is, I don't regret buying this board! But, watercooling could be a problem with two or three GPUs. This board runs hotter than I would like, but not bad. I replaced the Mobo fan with a 80mm fan to cool the board. But still there are More Pros than Cons...

Overall Review: I'm running an Intel Q9550, two XFX SLI GTX260 Black, G-Skill 800mHz Black, with a Corsair TX850w PowerSupply, (Air Cooled) in an Antec 900. I can run Crysis MAXED out for hours without OC'ing (1440x 900). THIS BOARD IS STABLE!!! I overclocked the system and my Vantage score was 15k+ Stock, and 21K+ OC'ed.

Great controller1/29/2009 1:55:51 AM

Pros: This controller has helped my score on every FPS game!!! With the contour of the controller, you don't have to search for keys in the heat of a game. Plus: Adjustable palm support, blue back light, three custom profiles which are stored in the controller for portability, easy frag-access.

Cons: Price, but I would buy it again & again & again. Considering the money we've invested our computers, the cost is worth the extra frags.

Overall Review: Honestly, I don't want any of you to buy this controller. There is a clear advantage to owning the N52TE, and I like it. Despite what others have said, you can turn the light off on the bottom of the controller. After a couple hours of use, the results speak for them self.
