This review is from: ASRock Z87 PRO4 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: It arrived in 4 days. The price is just right with the rebate.
This MB has a lot of features in the bios and on the board itself. If you're into overclocking it handles many tweaks. The bios is easy to navigate but I don't think I'll end up using everything in it. It performs as advertised.
Cons: The physical look isn't flashy. It'd be nice if the ram dimms were opposite colors of one another.
Other Thoughts: This is my 2nd board. I ordered the first one from another company and that was a mistake, it ended up being used, and the B channel did not work. Only slots A1 & A2 worked. I returned that and ordered from Newegg, which I should have done in the first place. I received a new board and all was wellREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: I put 2x4gb, paired with an i3-4130 cpu to run win 7 and the ram works great even if it reads single channel in my bios (defective motherboard).
Other Thoughts: The MB I got was defective and wouldn't read these in the B channels, but they worked fine in channels A1 & A2.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This cpu hands all the basic needs very well. If you're doing mostly browsing and basic apps this is a fast cpu. I was happy with it running Win 7 paired with 8gb of ram.
Cons: I don't do the gaming or graphic intense apps that others do so I can't really compare it to other cpus.
Other Thoughts: I researched this before purchasing so I was well aware of its capabilities beforehand. Other processors are more popular and have higher specs but I didn't feel the need to spend the extra $ and I'm glad I didn't.
Cpus are one of the few products on a pc that actually don't come defective :)
