    What about EVGA Boards

    Evga, XFX, and corsair have amazing customer support and very easy RMA process... ASUS, I can tell you first hand, has horrible customer support and RMA support. For your own best interest, don't buy asus, if anything goes wrong and you need customer support (especially RMA) you will regret...

    Asus Maximus V Gene Uefi/Bios help needed!

    thank u for the response skripka, and yes the psu is overkill, its fully intended to be that way for multiple reasons one of which is it was its very quiet and small and two, the same price, on special for 249$ no tax/free shipping, as the ENERMAX Platimax EPM850EWT 850W. if youve ever had a...

    BitFenix Prodigy Mini-ITX PC Case

    Ive seen the prodigy case and to be honest I wasnt too impressed with the size and features of the case. Here is a micro atx case from lian li that is roughly the same size but much better imho. and a second link to an even smaller itx case. Pc-354 (microatx)...

    Recommended power supply brands

    I would highly recommend enermax for a few important reasons: 1. The fans tend to go out before the actual psu do on most psu's, that being said Enermax uses a quiet long lasting fan to cool that uses magnets instead of traditional bearings. I used them in my last build and they are running...

    Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Performance and IQ Review @ [H]

    BF3 reminds me of when Halo came out. Everyone who had a pc was like "what the hell is so special about another average FPS?" while on consoles people were losing their minds like it was ground breaking. The expectations are different for a pc vs. a console. and you hit the nail on the...

    Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Performance and IQ Review @ [H]

    Ok... what I'm about to say will not be popular but I feel it's an honest eval of BF3. It is a dumbed down version of BF2 with a graphics facelift. The eye candy in this game is simply breath taking. However, the game itself is a console game ported to pc regardless what EA has told us that...

    LG L246W

    wow, what was a litteraly a problem nvidia could have fixed with an intern and notepad in 5 minutes instead... nvidia decided to lose market share, I'm not upset because they just fucked themselves, if my drivers dont install right on my clean install I guess I'll default to ati/amd... which is...

    G700 Range?

    I also have the K800 and the G700 also. I generally only use my mouse at the desk but I tried it around 15 feet away and it worked fine, I have noticed that it actually works better with a 500 polling rate vs. 1000 fyi, im not sure why. I dont see a difference at 1000 over 500 at any rate and...

    Ready to buy Logitech G700. Check a couple things on yours for me.

    there is no question here, the G-700 is perfect. 2 things... give it a week to settle into because it is very comfortable for your hand and the buttons are actually usefull. I set the ones by my thumb to the front two forward and back two back... I just havent found uses for all of em yet...

    Logitech G700 battery life

    Ok so after a few weeks of using the mouse I've found the replaceable batteries solution with the eneloop batteries and a charger actually better than a charging cradle since the mouse lasts two and a half days under heavy gaming, or all day gaming. I almost plugged in my G-7 and craigslisted...

    Logitech G700 battery life

    actually, if the mouse had a cradle you could put it in the cradle when done at night and just pick it up in the morning... with the way this thing lasts on a single charge you would litterally have to game for over 2 or 3 days straight to drain the battery and it only takes a few hours to fully...

    Should the Logitech G700 mouse come with a charging cradle?

    I personaly think this is a perfect mouse for one major glaring deficiency... where the hell is the charging cradle? If it had one I would never need to plug in that tacky cable it comes with. if I played a game all day when done I would simply put it on the charger and voila, the next day I...

    Logitech Support and Community Involvement: Doing it the way it should be done.

    Unfortunately you are correct in not buying one of their product on reputions but more lack thereof. Like I said in my earlier post their saving grace is their flawless warranty and the fact when they do get it right it's usually in spades... unfortunatly they really drop the ball occasionaly...

    Wireless Logitech Illuminated for gaming?

    I have had the K800 logitech wirleless illuminated keyboard now for over 4 days and here are the main differences I've found from the wired other than the obvious that it is wireless (duh). - The keyblocking issue with the " ' n t " combination is fixed, also fixed is the "w shift spacebar"...

    Logitech G700 battery life

    I just picked up a G700 and like the way it performs. However, there is one area that is a little puzzling to me and that is the battery life. I ran my G700 for about 8 hours in 500 mhz polling and max gaming and I went from a full charge, which is 3 green lights, to 1 green light which is...

    G700 vs Performance MX vs Mamba

    Ok, this info is helpfull but is very subjective, I get my G700 on the 23rd of this month according to UPS and my biggest concern is the Battery life. What I think would help alot more is more objective information such as the DPI, and polling rates for all three of these mice and lastly...

    Logitech Support and Community Involvement: Doing it the way it should be done.

    I would have to say Logitech is a love hate relationship when it comes to customer support. Their WIRED illuminated keyboard had many issues including keyblocking that they never really addressed, their 3d pro flighstick fails mechanically and starts to drift in less than a year (gone through 3...

    Wireless Logitech Illuminated for gaming?

    Wireless Logitech Illuminated for gaming?

    Hmmm... I'm puzzled that you have not heard of the key blocking issue with the Logitech illuminated keyboard that makes it terrible for game or fast typers. on the other hand for wireless mice they seem rather well made... Personally I've used the G-9 wireless for gaming and it's better than...

    Logitech Illuminated keyboard review & pics

    I returned my keyboard already, logitechs only answer to any of my problems was to buy one of their piece of shit G series keyboards.

    Logitech Illuminated keyboard review & pics

    I wish that logitech didnt decide to cut corners to the point where the damn keyboard isnt even functional anymore... I find it ironic that it has a game mode in the setpoint... at any rate after I called them today they confirmed in fact that the matrix in the keyboard is lacking and does not...
