This review is from: BIOSTAR N68S AM3/AM2+ NVIDIA MCP68S Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Cheap quick fix board.
Other Thoughts: I got this for a friend as a quick fix board. He's not an OC or hardcore computer gamer but he needed a board that was cheap and worked, while I personally don't like Biostar he has had this board for a few months now and is still working so I guess as a standard computing board it will do.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I am very pleased with this card(s) play Metro 2033 on high directx11 and no problems.
Cons: It is somewhat loud but to me its not enough to take away an egg
Other Thoughts: When it comes to computer stuff and noise levels I have a keen ear for even the smallest of sounds and the fans on the card are somewhat loud I'm focused on gaming to take notice. while not running high demanding games the fans are not noticed easily.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD5-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: I love this board. I dont have any real problems but the pcie x1 slot is poorly placed and because of this I cant really use it. Not worth taking an egg off. I can get my 2500K to a stable 4.0. Love the new look for Gigabyte with he black PCB and heat sink. I've been a long time customer of gigabyte and this is a nice change from the blue and white PCBs. I wouldnt recommend triple sli or xfire because its only ganna run at 16x8x4 so I wouldnt use the last x16 slot for a gpu card but something else that doesnt need the x16 or x8
Cons: only ones that I can think of is x4 pciex16 slot and the poor placement of the pciex1 slot. If your ganna do any sli or xfire the only other pciex1 slot will be unusable because of the gpu taking up that slot.
Other Thoughts: Make sure you X.M.P. your ram because it will restart other wise but usually after 20 mins or so giving you a decent amount of time.READ FULL REVIEW
