Cannot run memory at 1600MHZ
Pros: Quad core Black Edition 3.2GHZ with a lot of head room for overclocking
Cons: Does not support 1600 speed memory at stock speeds. I know that this is the case with most PhenomII but It should be advertised in the details list at least.
Overall Review: I had to downclock my memory from 1600 to 1333 to get this build to run properly. I just wish I had known about this before I bought this processor. maybe this reviwe will help future buyers.
Cables are short
Pros: Works well no power issues with my build
Cons: The cables are too short, even for a mid tower case.
Overall Review: I wouldn't dream of putting this in anything larger than a mid tower case. The 8-pin CPU connector was too short to run anywhere that did not cause concern. I had to either route it underneath the VGA next to my PCI-E slot or over the top of my VGA. underneath scares me cause it gets too close to my northbridge HS and over just looks terrible in my windowed side panel case. Both ways it is very tight and putting constant strain on the cable.
great product terrible shipping
Pros: The skillet itself is great. Wish i could give 5 eggs for the product.
Cons: Since this was not handled by Newegg Directly the shipping took almost two weeks to get to my door. I ussually get things in less than a week of ordering. This claimed that it had been shipped for a full week before it actually had any tracking details.
Overall Review: I wish they could show the ratings of both the product and the shipping. I would have given five eggs for the product and zero eggs for the shipping. If I had known it would take so long to get here I would have purchased the same exact skillet at Target for a few dollars more.
Pros: Does great once you get it installed correctly.
Cons: The drivers didn't work the first time I installed. I worked on them for a few hours before I finally figured out the problem. I downloaded the Realtek drivers for the RTL 8192CE as suggested by other reviewers. This still didn't fix the problem.Installed this in a Crossfire video card setup. Apparently the video cards were taking up all the bandwidth from both channels on my mother board when they were running at X16. By switching the Graphics cards to share a channel and run at X8 the WI-FI adapter was able to work properly.
Overall Review: Really annoying to have to down grade my GPU's just to have wireless. If I had known this I probably would have went with a USB adapter since I only use the PC for gaming and internet.
Pros: Great placement of thumb keys. DPI modes are very versatile. Easy to set up buttons. Great ergonomics. Weight adjustment is awesome
Cons: The DPI switch feels a little out of place. I wish it was a little further back. but if you have longer fingers i'm sure it would be great.
Overall Review: During the Holidays this mouse was on sale I wish I had waited a few more weeks to purchase.
