This review is from: ASRock Z87 Extreme4 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Sturdy design, nice quality feel. Realtek ALC1150 Purity Sound. Bios is easy to use and looks great. So far all systems are GO. BOSE sound system and G35 headset sound really good. I don't know if it's one thing or everything working as one together, I had a lot of time to research products, this build is everything I had hoped for sure. Games run so smooth now, I'm not going to bother with a GTX 780 but rather wait for the next gen GTX 800 series to go on sale so maybe 2 years until a GPU upgrade.
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: Azza Solano 1000
GTX 570 2.5GB
ASRock Z87 Extreme4
EVGA 100-FS-C901-KR cooler
M500 240GB SSD
WD 1TB Black Series
2 x 4GB G.Skill Sniper 1866Mhz
ASRock made a nice board here, even the box says Tom's Hardware Smart Buy 2013.
This review is from: EVGA 100-FS-C901-KR 92mm Sleeve mITX ACX CPU Cooler, Direct Touch 4 Heat Pipe
Pros: All black with EVGA logo, excellent design allows it to clear the RAM with room to spare. Using this with an AZZA Solano 1000 case with the side fan that obstructs coolers until this one! i5 4670k and ASRock Z87 Extreme4 with G.Skill Sniper RAM. Temps are low, this cooler works, and it fits.
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: Fan gets mounted on the back and sucks air out of the cooler and blows it to the cases exahaust. I inverted the cooler so the logo is upside down and the fan blows air into it, but I had to load the RAM into the A2 B2 slots to make room. Don't know if theres any difference but it works anyway. Sort of wished I mounted this like it's suppose to but I don't really look into my case anyway. I just really like that it fits since my case has such clearance issues for taller coolers, not to mention it is doing an excellent job of cooling.READ FULL REVIEW
