1.0 out of 5 stars Unstable on XMP settings, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Worked fine on JEDEC settings but did not cope with XMP. Better to save the money and stick with standard 1600MHz memory. Returned this and bought Crucial DDR3 1600 DIMMs. Working fine.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fine for client O/S, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not for Server O/S. Intel does not support or provide drivers for the on-board network card for server operating systems so I had to fit a PCIe card. What is the point of having two on-board network cards if you can not use them with Windows server? This board has ten SATA connectors. Who in their right mind would fit 10 hard drives to a client PC? This would be great for home / small business server duties if they would let it. No wonder PC sales are in the doldrums when artificial restrictions like this are imposed. Oh and don't try the Intel i7-4770K with server either. That does not support all the server virtualisation extensions. I dismay!

2.0 out of 5 stars Leather?, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This mousmat is made with a slim rubber back and textile top. The top surface is quite good for mice and is marked with a Logitech logo and silver and blue graphic on a black background. The low score is because of the smell. The smell from the rubber backing is overpowering. The mat is cheap and not worth returning but this one is going in the bin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shame about the software, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great PSU. I bought this for a small server and it is extremely efficient and silent.

The "i" model comes with a USB dongle to allow monitoring of the PSU. It connects between a special socket on the PSU and an internal USB header on the motherboard. Software then provides real-time info on the PSU performance.

The problem? Well the software constantly polls the hard drives and this prevents them from spinning down. For a very energy efficient system as is possible with this PSU, this is an unforgivable oversight. I ended up by uninstalling the software and disconnecting the dongle. The PSU works fine without it.

I would recommend purchasing the Corsair AX760 PSU instead of the AX760i. It's the same power supply but without the dongle connection and problem software. You also save about 30 pounds, get a quieter system and save even more electricity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality replacement, 22 Dec 2013

Easily fitted if you have a very small cross-point screwdriver. In the Toshiba, it was necessary to completely remove the motherboard to get access so allow a couple of hours for the job.

Standard good quality cat 6 cable. Runs at full gigabit speed. It's handy to be able to use different colours to identify the cable use.

Good quality photography. A new picture every weekday and one for the weekends. Just what you need on a cold winter's day to make you look forward to some summer holidays.

1.0 out of 5 stars Distorted Image, 22 Dec 2013
Very disappointing product. Despite being fitted to a flat large-tile wall the image is badly distorted and makes reflections look like a joke. This product should be sold in a novelty shop. A waste of time and money. Buy a glass mirror.
