Intel 750 Series AIC 400GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSDPEDMW400G4X1

Pros: Works great and easy install. I tried it in my evga Dark x79 (x4 slot) and couldn't get it to work. I researched and found where someone has it working in this motherboard . I tried it (my gaming computer) and it recognized it as a PATA (as I recall). I then set everything I could find to UEFI (again as I recall) and using my install disk of Windows 8.1 (apparently has the drivers), installed without a problem and as my boot drive. After installation, I disabled CSM. I'm writing this review on the computer that it is installed on. I then updated the drivers from Intel. I'm running SLI Titan X and installed it in the available PCI-E slot between the 2 graphic cards. Everything appears to running at full speed (at least the cards) according to the applications... GPU-Z, etc. I'm satisfied with the drive speed and it appears to be running close to specs... CrystalDiskMark (read: 2098 / write 891.8) Seq Q32T1

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: These are my results and your results may differ, depending on system specs and configuration. However, I was able to get it to work. Not sure of all the settings and exactly how I got it to work... but it's working great.

MSI Radeon R9 290X DirectX 11.2 R9 290X GAMING 8G 8GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card

Pros: Performance, reasonably quiet. Plenty of settings and adjustments. Price.

Cons: It was noisy when I first installed it... sounded like a bunch of tin cans rattling. Appears to be ok now (nice and quiet), except sometimes when first powering up; it might do it a little... but then stops. It's idling now very quiet.

Other Thoughts: I'm using this in my main pc, whereas I do some basic video editing and gaming that doesn't support SLI. I have SLI in my high end gaming pc... so for the performance and pricing, I think it's a great value. It appears not to support CUDA or PhysX per GPU-Z. Can't say I noticed and difference from my gaming rig (nVidia) COD Advanced Warfare as opposed to this machine... meaning it handles it fine on high settings.

5 out of 5 eggs Great Case 08/04/2014

This review is from: Antec NSK4100 Black SGCC steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: I like the style and it does what it's supposed to. I had no issues putting it together. Nice lightweight case with enough room for all my components. Metal is thin, but it gets the job done at low cost... I'm satisfied with my purchase.

Cons: None that I could find.

Other Thoughts: I think it's a good inexpensive case.
