ASUS Z87-WS LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Stable Motherboard with all the bells and whistles 04/10/2014

This review is from: ASUS Z87-WS LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I haven't build a system in a few years, but this motherboard had so many features that I haven't seen or heard of before, I had to actually read the manual. It was painful believe me. The motherboard's heatsinks really dissipated the heat well, I was actually pleasantly surprised. It wasn't hot, but was warm and seemed evenly distributed. This main board just felt like quality from the moment I took it out of the box. The included accessories were nice but I didn't need them. I bought two of these boards and neither have disappointed me. I am running VMware ESXi 5.5 and I haven't had a problem yet. I am booting ESXo off the internal usb header. The two Intel i210 Network Interfaces are fully supported and are already included with the OEM ESXi 5.5 update 1 build. Both system are running very cool and draw around 45watts each at idle running an Intel i7-4771 processor with 32GB G.SKill DDR3-1600 memory. I am happy with the purchase of these mainboards.

Cons: None that I can think of

SeaSonic SS-520FL2 520W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Quality is amazing!!! I bought two of these PSUs and both run like a champ, 24/7 since I got them. I do love knowing there is no fan adding vibrations. I also love that it is fully modular which helps with the cable clutter. The real seller for me was the 80 Plus Platinum rating. I did my homework on these units, and they rated up there by many reviewers as one of the most efficient PSUs in its price range. Not to mention, its fanless, and fully modular. The choice was a no brainer for me. They generate no noticeable amount of heat when putting my hand above it. To be fair though, I am not putting more then 120Watts of load on it. Maybe I need to buy a video card and start bit-mining. =] The included accessories are a nice touch.

Cons: I got nothing!

Other Thoughts: I would buy these all day, everyday!

5 out of 5 eggs Low Power Draw, Fast, and Great for Budget Hypervisor Build 04/10/2014

This review is from: Intel Core i7-4771 Haswell Quad-Core 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1150 84W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600 BX80646I74771

Pros: I build two systems with this processor for use as a home lab running VMware ESXi. These CPUs are great for my budget build. Really fast processors that draw little power. Supported VT-D, VT-x, even has onboard video support (saved me money and PCIe slot). I am running it in the ASUS Z87-WS motherboard with G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (F3-1600C9Q-32GXM) memory and is very stable.

Cons: I have read these Haswell chips can run hot, but I am using a Corsair H100i Hybrid cooling system and my temps are really cool. Idles around 30 degrees Celsius and with a full load (100% utilization on all cores) using Prime95, the temps go up to around 60 degrees Celsius. Soon as you stop the tests, the temps come back down 30 degrees Celsius again immediately. You can't over clock the non-K series chips but I don't play that over-clocking game any ways.

Other Thoughts: I would buy them again if I had it to do over again.
