This review is from: MSI Z97 U3 Plus LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Cost, looks good,UEIF Bios easy to work with, I would read up on your bios settings first to make things easier for you if not use to UEIF.
Cons: Ram Compatibility List
Other Thoughts: Ram compatibility list states 8GB kit of Corsair XMS3 4x2gb kit CMX8GX3M4A1333C9 is compatible. Doesn't seem to be. Is causing freezes with computer. Ram tested good "mem86test" so not the chips. "Maybe motherboard doesn't like 4 chips installed??" Doesn't freeze with one 4gb stick installed. Research on your ram first to be installed into mobo. CPU is a Intel Pentium Processor G3258 <<--- OC's great: I don't know if problem is in CPU but most likely not as runs fine with just the -- one ram stick in it. <-- " Different Brand " Bios is flashed to latest release.
MSI please recheck your Ram Compatibilty List
Not Neweggs doing so cant knock off egg for that
Pros: Price; Looks
Cons: Cable management, knock out PCIe slots
Other Thoughts: This is a good looking case and the price is low. But it does not have any cable management at ALL. I would not purchase this case again. If your not into cable management then your should be happy with this case but still,, only purchase it on a special only.Knock out PCIe bay slots need replacements after, Case is still made somewhat cheep. If price is a factor then go for it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looks good price when on sale.
Cons: Motherboard Mounting, Rubber fan mounts
Other Thoughts: I would now buy this CPU Cooler & Fan again. The mounting for the motherboard is not good at all. Mount once then throw away. Like it was made for a one time use. I got this on sale for 19.99. If I had paid full price,$30.00 , it would be on the way back to Newegg already. Not worth the cost of shipping back. Not Newegg's fault as they did not make product. But they should stop selling them. I'm sure I am not the only one not happy with this product. Motherboard mounting is one use & throw away. Don't buy it.READ FULL REVIEW
