5 out of 5 eggs great card for 1080p 10/12/2016

This review is from: ASUS ROG STRIX Radeon RX 470 4GB DP 1.4 HDMI 2.0 AMD Gaming Graphics Card

Pros: -got it for 250cad (about 190usd) in my local store, can run 1080p @60fps in nearly max-out settings
-overclockable (able to stay at 1270mhz) and has cool temp (65 C)
-slightly slower than the gtx 1060 3gb but quite a bit cheaper
-good amount of fast vram

Cons: -the power output is limited due to the 6-pin connector instead of 8-pin (my PSW doesnt have 8-pin anyways)
-still a touch higher than the msrp (not really a con)
-4gb vram can be a bit lacking in the future (i.e. in gta V max settings 1080p @55fps, 3.4gb is used!)
-fans do make some noise only when the gpu is overclocked and running at full speed

Other Thoughts: oct/12 note: please use the MSI afterburner to overclock instead of the asus gpu tweak because you don't want to overvolt the gpu which will shorten its lifespan theoretically

MSI H81M-P33 LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: cheap for a lga 1150 mobo, has usb 3.0 ports in the back.

Cons: First only 2 sata ports are up to 6.0Gbps. Second it has NO usb 3.0 19-pin connector for the front. Most importantly, terrible product quality and customer service. 6 months after i bought it, with there were some windows 8 automatic repair failures, it seems to boot up slowly and get into windows 8 much slower than before. Few days ago, it cannot power on after I bought a new hard drive, until i swapped everything from my dad's desktop and scale the problem down to the malfunctioning mobo. I emailed msi and they did not reply, seriously why.

Other Thoughts: still have to buy since I need another mobo to replace it. Terrible product and customer service.

3 out of 5 eggs as advertised, but could be better 12/08/2014

This review is from: NZXT Source 210 S210-001 Black “Aluminum Brush / Plastic” ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: acceptable price, fast shipping, good packaging, decent design

Cons: poor texture(plastic feels cheaply made), no USB3.0, too much ventilation hole to save manufacture cost. Like compare to the rosewill cases from other website, this thing has absolute NO ADVANTAGE in all category other than the bottom mounted PSU. So it's somewhat expensive for it's quality

Other Thoughts: the manufacturer should really improve this product: A. make a better one that has more attraction points, or B.lower the price by $10 to be competitive
