Pros: Great little board. Sublimely solid and a joy to install.
Other Thoughts: I wasn't expecting such a robust package from ASRock, nor from a H97 level board. I am more than impressed, that's an understatement.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Profile is perfect for smaller cases. The kit profile needed no prodding from the BIOS on my GA-Z170X Gaming-7 board.
Other Thoughts: Excellent price and performance. It was a hard sell but I tiptoed away from Gskill for these seeing the speeds and thresholds you look at with the Z170 platform. Didn't go in depth, but I was pleased with the overclock I saw with a few initial test posts.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NVIDIA Gift - Coupon Code for Gears of War 4
Pros: My son loves the game but it wasn't enough to get him to stop playing Payday 2, Black Ops 3 or Battlefield 1.
Cons: Sheesh. I love Steam. I'm OK with Origin because I appreciate the storefront and my wife plays Sims and my son and I play Battlefield 4 (he plays 1). The process to redeem this free key was AWFUL. I swear for every good decision Microsoft has made with the whole XBOX platform, this new DRM solution is the pits. The Windows store is a PAIN to work with if you're remotely serious as a gamer. Limiting such a flagship game to a single storefront that's fledgling to get a hold of the market is head-scratching to say the least.
Other Thoughts: So, you get the email with the key, but if you're on a fresh install of Windows 10, you'll be tripping over updates to not only the Windows Store, but the XBOX platform *inside* the WIndows Store, which for me, started throwing out TONS of "file in use" errors and such nonsense. Eventually I just set everything to update, which basically took my son's new PC out of commission for an entire day, including of course the extremely SLOW download of the game itself. Free? That's nice, but not a killer app to get people like us to accept yet ANOTHER DRM.READ FULL REVIEW
