ASRock Z77M LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Z77 chipset, multiple fan headers, reasonable price

Cons: only 2 memory slots, comes with some bloatware, use care installing only what you want

Other Thoughts: The main thing I wanted to mention is that I thought I bent the CPU socket pins when I opened up the socket to remove the black plastic dummy plug, but about half of the pins in the socket are apparently supposed to be bent somewhat. After looking carefully I saw they were bent all the same say at a perfect angle that couldn't have been caused by bumping it, so I installed the CPU and fired it up. Everything works fine, ran Prime95 for 10 minutes with no errors.

So, don't panic if about 1/2 of the pins are bent but be sure they're uniformly bent. If there's a spot where it looks like something bumped the socket and bent the pins, that could be a problem.

Also, I didn't realize most of the software on the CD is bloatware. Some are neat tools but you really only need the drivers and possibly the extreme tuning utility. The other stuff just runs lots of background processes and hogs resources.

Rosewill RHTS-12007 Canal High Fidelity Passive Noise Isolating Earbuds
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Seem to be fairly high build quality, sounds decent for cheap ear buds.

Cons: cloth-like wire wrap rubs on the face and the scratchy sound translates into the ear buds.

Other Thoughts: I got these free with a purchase and at first was pleasantly surprised at how nice they looked. They seem well made. But when I used them to listen to music on the fitness bike I noticed that any slight movement I made caused the wires to rub against my ears/face and which produces a loud sound you can easily hear. If you sit very still it should be no problem, but I use ear buds while working out so these aren't for me. The rubbing sound is too irritating. There's a reason most earbuds use soft rubber coated wires.
