refurb z77 extreme4
This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Came with all accessories and instructions. It wasn't missing anything. I've had it up and running for a month with no issue. I was able to overclock my non k CPU and got my 1600 gskill up to 1866 stable. Nice bonus.
Cons: Bios defaults were a bit strange or maybe it's my hardware configuration. Basically it defaults to being able to turn on your computer via touching the keyboard or clicking the mouse. Sounds good unless you have a cat that likes to turn on your computer all the time. PCB is real thin so you might need some washers if you go with certain closed loop liquid coolers.
Other Thoughts: The refurb price isn't much less than the new price unless you get it on discount (I had a 20% off code). I get an A6 error on the board in bios only. Hasn't affected usage. Clear tape still on south bridge heat sink, could mean the board was never installed.
