This review is from: Intel BOXDP67BGB3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: I just got it out of the box, the board looks pretty.
Cons: Am I stupid or are all six cables plain old sata? Shouldn't two of them support sata3?
Other Thoughts: I'm probably just overthinking the sata3 requirements.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RMS-HDA5000 Amplified Digital HDTV Antenna - Indoor/Outdoor
Pros: It's a compact antennae.
Cons: Not really big enough.
Other Thoughts: I was just mistaken from the picture about how big it was. Size matters when picking up over the air signals. Even with the amplifier, I see no improvement over any of the others I have tried. I was just hoping to get more than two and a half channels.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel BOXDH55HC LGA 1156 Intel H55 HDMI ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: It has plenty of ram slots. Plenty of usb connections.
Cons: I somehow managed to get the I5 that does NOT support graphics. Now I'm wondering whether I want to try to return the board or the processor. I've tried a pci-vga card. Did not work. I've tried two different pci-express x 16 graphics cards. A GE-Force 6600 and a GEForce 9800. With either of those, one out of every ten reboots will see graphics capabilities and I can get to the bios screen.
Other Thoughts: Well, I wouldn't mind using the onboard graphics. But I can't because I didn't know to pair the processor. I wouldn't mind using a graphics card. But I can't. Because the board doesn't usually see the card. I got intel so the system would be solid. Not particularly for the speed. I didn't get either.READ FULL REVIEW
