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

Still going strong after 2 years. Upgrading to 32GB and bought another set for $77. When I got it was $185.99... Upgrading my SSD too. I got the SSD when 120GB was $249.99 (OCZ Vertex 3).

Cons: Can't complain at all.

RAM does what RAM does! Not DOA either.

Other Thoughts: Bought another set earlier to bump up my system to 32GB. Wish the RAM was this price when I got it originally. It was $185.99 when I got it originally in 2014! Crazy!

Thanks NewEgg/GSkill!

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.
