This review is from: MSI MSI Gaming 970 Gaming AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Installation was easy, CPU mount area has a lot of space for practically any size heatsink or waterblock. The other heatsinks are a nice welcome feature to bleed off more board heat, and the amount of fan pins are a blessing if you don't wanna clog your case up with molex adapters.
Cons: Just two things I've had a problem with so far.
1. The SATA plugs, horizontal? Really? Not really a problem, just a pain to plug them.
2. The reason why I took an egg off, the supplied mobo drivers are fine, but the Lan driver is HORRIBLE. It throttles WAY more than it should. I got around this by using a different driver (Qualcomm Atheros AR8161) because without this I'd get horrid speeds.
Other Thoughts: Very nice motherboard once you get passed the "Killer" lan drivers.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LEPA LPWAC240-HF AquaChanger 240 Liquid CPU Cooler 240mm
Pros: Very nice AIO system, it's keeping my AMD 8350 at a max of 35c under load. Easy installation (granted you remember to take off the plastic protection piece on the copper plate...) and the paste that comes with it is as good as Arctic Silver.
Cons: The only con I have with this is the back-plate. It DOES kinda stick out a bit further than I'd like, but nothing a precautionary piece of electrical tape couldn't fix. NOTHING was touching mind you, but it was just to put my mind at ease.
Other Thoughts: Very nice, very cheap AIO cooler. The fans are nice and the installation is quite easy.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Quick and easy to install, range is pretty good as well as my router is around 50-60ft on the other side of the house and this adapter picks it up with only a 1 bar signal loss.
Cons: Sadly the Utility Program it comes with. I wanted something that would just run in the background without popping up on restart (mostly for my mother who panics if she opens up a new tab on firefox). It also makes it kinda confusing for those less into computers and more into just browsing the net (again my mother)
Other Thoughts: All in all I like it, shipped quick, easy install, good quality and no problems at all.READ FULL REVIEW
