This review is from: ASRock Z87 PRO3 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Nice BIOS
Windows 8.1 installed smoothly
Cons: It takes few attempts to install PCIe card so it works - sometimes they are not visible in BIOS.
Other Thoughts: Finally 31(!) days after purchase the board is just dead. Not a sound on power up. Verified PSU ok using paperclip test.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LIAN LI PC-A05FNB Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Light, Good fit and finish, can fit ATX motherboard into a small size case, sensible / unusual design, lots and lots of thumbscrews, e.g. 3.5 drive cage uses 6 screws! 2 decent 120mm 3-pin connector fans bundled, USB3 front port.
Cons: Everything is flexing - sometimes I think the case is not rigid enough to accommodate motherboard with multiple add-on cards. Every screw takes unusually many turns to tighten - I suspect because the metal around it flexes.
Other Thoughts: This is my first aluminum case. Very light - which is nice. Also flexing. This is somewhat disturbing to me. Am I the only one who thinks the screws provided have thread different than that in other cases? The screws fixing add-on cards in other cases have thread which is much more coarse.READ FULL REVIEW
