GIGABYTE GA-B85M-DS3H (rev. 3.0) LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Does everything it's supposed to.

Even though it's a B85 chipset I was able to stably overclock my G3258 to a maximum of 4.5Ghz. (I tested 4.6Ghz, but I'd get lag.)

Ambient temps are 27C, and with a CM Hyper 212 EVO cooler and Arctic Silver 5 thermal compound CPU idling temps are 31C, and playing Wii games doesn't pass 61C.

Low cost.

Cons: -1 Egg for cutting corners.
Including SATA II and USB 2.0 ports on an LGA 1150 socket motherboard? What is this, 2005?

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm very satisfied with this motherboard.

SAMSUNG XP941 MZHPU256HCGL-00000 M.2 256GB PCI Express MLC Enterprise Solid State Drive
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It's a small form-factor, needs very little wattage to operate, and it's very easy to install.

Cons: This is the slowest SSD I've ever used in my life. I just don't understand how this drive boots to, shuts down, and updates Windows 7 SLOWER than some random 500GB Seagate HDD I had installed while I waited for this drive to arrive.

I'm currently installing drivers from a .iso file and it's taking a ridiculous amount of time to install anything.

I spent 2x the money on this m key SSD vs a b+m key SSD hoping this SSD would give me true PCI-E M.2 2.0 x4 speeds, but I'm not even getting 5400RPM HDD speeds.

Other Thoughts: It's installed in a Sager NP9772 M.2 m-key port.

GIFT AMD GOLD 3 GAMES 2014 (Up to $150 Retail Value)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It came free with my R9 280 GPU.
Decent game selection.

Cons: The only way this is worth $150 in games is if the games in the selection came out the week you acquired this card; the biggest value you'll really get from this card is $65.

Other Thoughts: All 3 games I got from this package were through Steam, were easy to download, and easy to transfer (backups, HDD-swapping.)
