G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C10D-16GAB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great RAM. Not truly elaborate with heatspreaders; low profile and nice looking. Passed both PC Doctor extended RAM tests and Prime95 Blend tests.

Paired this up with a 4770k, so I can do some serious work: 3D Modelling and CAD. (No Quadro or FirePRO yet. :( ) Running these at the full 1866MHz with XMP enabled and it performs great! Huge step from a Core 2 Quad and 8GB DDR2-800 RAM.

Cons: Can't complain at all.

RAM does what RAM does! Not DOA either.

5 out of 5 eggs Fantastic Motherboard 02/04/2014

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-C7Z87-O ATX Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel Z87 DDR3 1600

Pros: Running extended and advanced tests on the motherboard and components in it have yielded no problems. Very solid and easy to work with. Great layout. Was not alarmed with any flimsy items. Simple and not flashy.

Love the old style BIOS. This has (U)EFI support, but it doesn't have the flashy interface that everyone else has now. That, for me, was a large selling point.

Upgraded from a Core 2 Quad to an i7 4770k and all the new goodies. Goodness, is it fast.

Cons: The CPU socket is a little close to the DIMM slots for me. My P5Q Pro had a good bit of distance from the socket to the DIMM slots.

I use a closed-loop-cooler and plan on upping to a custom water loop one day. So this doesn't really affect me overall.

Other Thoughts: First ever Supermicro motherboard. I'm trying to move away from the main manufacturers (Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, etc...) and into the server/workstation (Tyan, Supermicro, formerly Intel) world because I feel better there. Less flashy gimmicks and more robustness.

Too bad the workstation motherboard sector is small. I would classify this as a workstation motherboard more than a server motherboard.
