This review is from: Intel BOXDP55KG LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: I like the fact that there are not any legacy ports on this board. Makes it great for air flow. The layout is actually quite good so you can group like cables together. Being a neat freak this is nice.
Cons: Wish there would be documentation that it takes 2 minutes upon initial boot up before you can get to the BIOS. I initially thought that something was wrong but I let it go and it booted fine.
Other Thoughts: Other than that one con everything worked perfectly. Installed Windows 7 64 in under 22 minutes. Notice a big difference speed wise from my older AMD x2 5200.
They don't have a paper copy of the manual which is sort of stupid because you kind of need one if you run into problems.

Pros: This has to be one of WD best drive classes. Had good scores on Tomhardware. Will definately be looking for a 1.5TB one in the future for backup. Drive is pretty fast when using it as a boot drive for an OS. The 5 year warranty is a good deal as well.

This review is from: ASUS Crosshair III Formula AM3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Great motherboard, easy to set up. Lot of great features! Mem OK was helpful to get the board to boot. Overclocking features are great as well, nice to have a full functioning board. Sound is great as well.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Worth the extra money for the better onboard sound (even though it is on a riser card)READ FULL REVIEW
