This review is from: ASRock Z75 Pro3 LGA 1155 Intel Z75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Other Thoughts: Both the SATA 3 ports randomly stopped working one day.
Plugged the SSDs that were in those slots into the SATA 2 ports and kept on working.
Not going to bother with all the hassle of dismantling my build and RMAing just to replace a motherboard for an ageing 1155 socket.
Not happy with my purchase, but not horribly dissatisfied either. Hey, it's almost $60....
This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 with Window Arctic White Silent ATX Mid Tower Case
Pros: Built like a tank, silent, and dust-free
Cons: If the bottom dust filter could be pulled out the side, instead of the back, would make cleaning a bit easier.
Other Thoughts: I have mine set up so that it cools primarily via heat convection. The top vents are open, the rear exhaust is closed off, and the bottom and front intake spots all have 140mm fans, all spinning as low as the PWM will let them.
The i5 3570K is running at stock speeds, as is my Radeon 7850, and everything is slightly undervolted. I wanted mid-range, powerful components and longevity, so no overclocking for me.
Very happy with this case and its quietness.

Pros: Well-made, inexpensive, plugged right in and worked
Other Thoughts: The pictures make it look cheap and rickety, but it was surprisingly well made.READ FULL REVIEW
