ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer AM3+ AMD 990FX 5 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice bios, probably pointless to update, however very user-friendly. Never-ending amount of ports on the board and behind it, compatibility, looks cool.

Cons: Like I said in my previous review, runs warm, occasionally picky about boot order, (a lot of motherboards run in to that though, and it's not always the board's fault) and acting kinda strange then randomly working fine?? Those are my only major beefs.

Other Thoughts: They're customer service was actually very nice....and i wasn't. They just never would have figured out the problem totally on accident like I did. My board was acting up because of a bad power switch on my case. That's a new one in my book, You'd think it wouldn't turn on at all. Beats me why that would make the motherboard mad...??? SO I guess maybe add that one in book :) I did also reset the CMOS a bunch of times, which probably helped too. Board is working fine now, I give it a 3 only because it was acting really weird but has randomly stopped in is doing just fine, just a bummer it's not my main computer anymore. I built another one thinking this board was toast.

ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer AM3+ AMD 990FX 5 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard

Pros: Great board when it works. Tons of features, compatible with almost any heavy duty peripherals. Nice user-friendly bios, and easy to put together. With the right lighting it looks awesome in a windowed case.

Cons: Typical AMD anything: hot enough to cook something on it, cheap, and not as good as they used to be, whether it's the processors or boards that are made for them. I've had problems with this one since day 1. For some reason it will randomly change the boot order, some other settings are not saved and now wont run for more than a couple seconds or at all. I tried 3 different PSUs to see if the issue was power, no change, 3 different video cards, (ATi and Nvidia) still nothing . With liquid cooling, I left the Processor at factory speeds, which It did not run hot enough to cause any damage, so processor's off the hook. ASRock and I didn't get along too well so I guess we're done. 140 bucks down the drain. ;(

Other Thoughts: Hands down, I WOULD recommend this Board for an AMD fan or even a newcomer to gaming builds. Hopefully your luck is better than mine. It's a shame a temporary 110 dollar Intel build had to replace this. I will be returning to Intel for my next gaming build. Farewell AMD.....

NZXT Source 210 S210-001 Black “Aluminum Brush / Plastic” ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Price, very easy installation, lots of room to work with, bottom mounted power supply, rear fan is very quiet and first time builder friendly.

Cons: One day im not gonna have it anymore :(

Other Thoughts: Had this case for about a month now, I built a cheap computer for miscellaneous stuff (not gaming). It was time to take my hardware out of the awful, beaten to death case it was in before. Installation of hardware is so simple that it's almost pointless to read the manual. Locations for motherboard stand-offs are labeled right on the mounting wall itself. Plenty of room to hide the cables in the back, if you want a clean look. Large video cards, ATX boards, large PSU, all do-able. Current setup inside (some of these parts are from a while ago but newer models are about the same price: This case, Elitegroup H61H2-M17 ATX micro board, Celeron G1610 Daul-Core, BFG 550w Modular PSU, 8gb Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz, Radeon (forget what model) 1gb, 640gb WD Caviar HD and Enermax T.B. Silence 120mm Red led fan = less than 500 bucks :) You won't be disappointed.
