-Micro ATX size for smaller builds like mine (Put this in an Air 240 case)
-B85 chipset (good overclocking and it's cheap)
-3 year warranty from MSI!
-cool little LED line from the audio output to the sound card on the board (and the on-board card glows red ;P)
This board is quite amazing. Not many people know about it or look lesser than it is at it because it's quite cheap for a gaming board. But WOW, can this thing perform! runs wonderfully with my budget build (r7 260x and i3-4370) and I can run many games such as The Forest and Battlefield 4 on high settings. The board has many great features such as audio boost and overclocking capability. Love this board, and if anything were to go wrong, there's a 3 year warranty from MSI. and ALL THIS FOR 90 BUCKS? WOW!!!!!!!!!
Cons: The PCB is a nice black color, but the circuitry lines all over the board are brown, meaning when you have a light shining on it, the board looks almost a brownish tint that I do not enjoy. But, that's only my personal opinion on the aesthetics of it, and the board itself is wonderful.
Other Thoughts: Honestly, if you're looking for a wonderful board for gaming that is rich with features and has overclocking capability, look no further than the MSI B85M Gaming Board!!!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Air Series CO-9050016-RLED 120mm Red LED Case Fan – Twin Pack
Pros: These fans are very bright. 2 of them top mounted in my air 240 light up my case well. And they move a ton of air.
Cons: -Extremely loud. Like, deafeningly loud. Hooked up to standard 3-pin motherboard header, and woah. these things are louder than my air conditioner. If you put these fans at 6V (like I am) they will be WAY quieter and move an OK amount of air, but not be as bright.
Get a fan contoller with this, please.
Other Thoughts: They move a lot of air, but as tradeoffs are at a decibel level just too high on 12V for my liking. I'll keep em, but I'll probably go with different fans in the future.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: None really. Was suppodes to be good for ITX builds, not in my case.
Cons: I bought this cooler based on the high reviews for Mini-ITX builds. Turns out this cooler is complete garbage imo.
1. The cooler covers almost my entire board, covering all the fan pins and is touching my gskill ripjaws ram. It literally is pushing my ram modules slightly to the side, I turned the heatsink a few times to get it so it wouldn't sit on the ram and completely squash them.
2. My temperatures are all over the place. I am using it with an A10-7850k, and temps go from 45-60 in a matter of seconds (ON IDLE!) I re-seated the cooler TWICE and placed a perfect amount of thermal grease (Pea-sized). I even tried a static pressure fan. No improvement whatsoever.
Already tore apart the box, so no way I can return it anyways.
I wouldn't recommend this cooler to anyone. Bought this product with high hopes based on good overall reviews, only to be let down. My stock AMD aluminum junk-cooler did better than this thing.
Other Thoughts: Deepcool makes good PC cases, but should stay away from coolers.READ FULL REVIEW
