Pros: Quality RAM that is designed for overclocking, you can't go wrong with this RAM in a high-end build. This RAM also has an impressively low form-factor, great if space constraints are an option or to boost airflow to other components depending on the layout of your motherboard.
Easily overclockable using XMP which is a nice bonus.
And perhaps the best thing is that this RAM is made by Corsair, a great company who makes quality products with very good warranty services. If you ever have any problems then Corsair will definitely take care of you.
Cons: This is on the lower end of the speed spectrum for DDR4 RAM. It's certainly not slow but just something to be aware of. RAM clock speed usually isn't the limiting factor in performance for most applications.
Other Thoughts: This same exact RAM comes in several colors, this is the red version - Make sure to pick the color that's the best deal or the one that meshes best with the rest of your system! Currently this product is a bit cheaper than the other version in Black for the exact same RAM.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works well right out of the box, and for very cheap. The unit itself is the smallest USB wireless adapter I've owned. Connection strength was pretty good, no complaints there.
Great for basic web browsing, youtube, etc.
Cons: It's not the fastest unit. It doesn't work on the 5 GHz band which I try to use due to wireless congestion on 2.4 GHz.
For HD streaming or online gaming I would probably look elsewhere.
Other Thoughts: This would be a great thing to keep around if you usually use wired but might need wireless. For the price and the size you can't go wrong. It will get you online and work for basic internet needs.
For faster speeds you need to look at wireless AC, but you will likely be paying more for an adapter than this one costs.
Pros: A solid high-quality board on Intel's latest X99 Chipset, with 8 DDR4 memory slots supporting up to 64GB or 128GB of RAM.
This board is packed with hardware, with 6 PCI Express slots (supporting 4-way CrossFireX/SLI), 10 6Gb/s SATA ports, Dual LAN, M.2 x4 support, and every connector you can think of. ASRock piled everything into this board.
It would be an excellent choice for someone who needs the best, in either a workstation paired with a good 8 or 14 core Xeon processor, or for a high-end gaming computer with a new Haswell-E i7.
Cons: This is a new chipset, and as such some people are experiencing instability problems with certain kinds of DDR4 RAM. Make sure the first thing you do when you get your new motherboard is to go and update the BIOS to ensure the best chance of having a stable build.
Other Thoughts: Note that this motherboard is in the newer LGA 2011-v3 socket, which is not backwards compatible with LGA 2011 processors! It also supports DDR4, which is similarly not backwards compatible with DDR3. So if you're coming from an older platform you'll need a new processor and new RAM for this board.READ FULL REVIEW
