This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: As with all ASROCK mobos packs a lot of bang for the buck.
Cons: Labeling on the board and the owner's manual could be a LOT better. I would love to see ALL manufacturers do better diagrams of the front panel connections. Also, as other reviewers have mentioned there could be confusion centering around the SATA III connections for the HDD and the bootup time. The label that they put on the ports actually made what should have been straight forward more confusing.
Also, attention first time ASROCK builders: 3rd PARTY UTILITY SOFTWARE will be downloaded if you hit 'download all' from the driver disk. Some of it is useful....some of it is annoying though. Took me a few minutes to get the annoying ones adjusted or deleted. But hey, that's why these boards cost less.
This review is from: Antec Gaming Series One Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Compact, toolfree and straight-forward.
Cons: The plastic legs are out of level so it wobbles just a bit. I didn't notice till I had the build installed on the desk. I'm going to look to see if they adjust or if I need to shim. I guess there's worse problems that I could have had. Still....READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Plenty of Room
Designed with the Builder in mind
LOVE the HD Mounting system (3-thumbs up on that!)
LOVE the EASE of dealing with the front panel.
Cons: The @#$%^& "power LED" wire! (WHY only put (2) cables when modern Mobo's need (3). The only POOR part of the design. (This is why I counted off the above star)
Other Thoughts: Overall, I love the case. The Pros outweigh the Cons by far. However that small Con did take away from an otherwise PERFECT build experience.READ FULL REVIEW
