This review is from: Thermaltake Core V41 CA-1C7-00M1WN-00 Black ATX Gaming Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Can't beat it for the price. Appropriate for all builders: newcomers, longtime builders and hardcore gamers. As a veteran to custom PC building, I must say that I am not disappointed. Aesthetically pleasing, and very easy to install just about any peripheral that is appropriate for a mid-tower. Lots of room. Wire management is a huge thorn in my side. Tied neatly, no issues. 10/10 from me, satisfied customer. Thermaltake has a good catalog and no complaints from me. Custom PC's are the way to go, this will be a good case for your build.
Cons: Nope, can't think of anyREAD FULL REVIEW
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.READ FULL REVIEW
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.....READ FULL REVIEW
