SteelSeries 63003SS QCK+ Mouse Pad

3 out of 5 eggs Not good enough for how much you pay 01/25/2013

This review is from: SteelSeries 63003SS QCK+ Mouse Pad

Pros: Good feel, friction, and size

Cons: Cheaply made. I've had mine for about a month now and it's already fraying on the edges and getting the white used look. I understand it's cloth but I would expect at least 3 months usage before this would happen.

AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.0 GHz Socket AM2+ 125W HDZ940XCGIBOX Processor

Pros: Price - It isn't the i7 obviously but look at the speed difference for the price difference. Do you want to pay 800$ more for 10-15% speed increase? I don't and AMD is always superior for gaming.

This CPU is perfect. The stock heatsink is very well engineered. Enough to where I didn't use my aftermarket heatsink/fan. It keeps the temps around 47C idle which is just fine for this much power.

Cons: None - This processor is epitome of bang for the buck. AMD hits a home run again.

Other Thoughts: I'm not an OCer so I can't compliment its OC capabilities. My mobo detected this processor right out of the box and it runs like a dream.

Pros: Blazing fast with no errors. I'm not an OCer so I will not comment on it's OC capabilities. As for PnP usage it's very fast and durable memory. I had to manually set the timings on my motherboard to 5 5 5 15. As usual Patriot using a high voltage of 2.1 - 2.2. Make sure your mobo can handle those voltages before purchasing or you won't POST (generally fixed with a BIOS flash.)

Cons: The heat spreaders are pretty tall about half an inch. If you have a large aftermarket CPU fan chances are it won't fit under it.

Other Thoughts: 75$ for 4Gigs of quality memory. Jump on this deal while memory is still cheap. This is the second time I have used Patriot and have had 2 sticks of working memory. My previous pair lasted 3 years with 0 issues and I did OC with those slightly.
