This review is from: ASRock X99 Extreme3 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: 30 days in use. Quality components for the price. The heat sinks, chokes, and caps are top notch. The M.2 slot was a surprise; although not yet used. Running with DDR4 memory at 2133; with minimal OC. Board fired up first time; and after BIOS updates that have rolled out over last month; no issues have been noted. Only at 16GB Ram on the board; due to high cost. Low temps on board and cpu.
Cons: Appears the M.2 slot, if used, will required the removal of the Graphics card. Not a major problem; but minor inconvenience. The Super Saver SATA3 slot blends in with the conventional SATA3 slots; so be careful if you plan to use the M.2 slot; as they cannot both be used together.
Other Thoughts: Moved from X79 TO X99 Asrock motherboard; and due to the high cost of memory; cannot compare 1 for 1; as my old board had 64GB of memory as opposed to 16GB on this board. As the BIOS updates have rolled out, appears more responsive, and believe is overall improvement. The low CPU temps and Motherboard temps are great. Corsair water cooling is also of benefit when purchasing this board.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: XEROX X7600I5M-WU 1200 x 1200dpi 24bit USB Interface Flatbed Scanner
Pros: Setup was intuitive, included software adequate, and
scan quality great for pics, which is all that I have
tested thus far.
Cons: None noted so far.
Other Thoughts: Windows 7 64 bit
Intel I7 Processor (LGA 2011 Socket)
32 GB Ram
Samsun 250GB SSD (Boot)
Mushkin 480GB SSD (Storage)
Samung 500GB SSD (Stoarage)
Pros: Paired this Mushkin 480GB drive to an existing OCZ 240GB drive on a X58 ASUS Sabertooth motherboard with both SSD's connected to the SATA 6 ports. Sequential read time came in at 375 MB/s and write time at 205 MB/s. With an average read access of .27 ms. Lowest priced 480GB drive as of early April 2012 purchase. When compared to my OCZ 240GB specs of 208 MB/s (read)- 146 MB/s (write) and .19ms; the Mushkin stacks up well.
Cons: None at this time
Other Thoughts: Good price per GB at $1.00 per Gig. The OCZ SSD is currently my boot drive; but pending some run time on the Mushkin without incident; will probably swap to the Mushkin as my boot drive; as it is significantly faster.READ FULL REVIEW
