MSI H81M-P33 LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great board for a budget 08/04/2015

This review is from: MSI H81M-P33 LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I bought this board at a BBS due to my Gigabyte board being a DOA which was easily returned to Newegg. This is the ONLY LGA1150 board that the BBS had in stock (why?) and it was $50 when I bought it on 08/2014.

It has been a trooper. It is much better then the Gigabyte it replaced and the Gigabyte I upgraded from. The USB ports on my previous Gigabyte board would constantly fade out causing my mouse to stop working in the middle of gaming. I thought it was my mouse, but now I know it was my crummy board.

I am super happy with my computer (it is tiny, but packs a punch) and haven't had any issues. If you are on a budget build you can get a decent rig built for under $550 which was my initial budget.

Cons: I got what I paid for. I wish it had a USB3.0 front header connection, though.

Rosewill BLACKHAWK Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Five (5) Preinstalled Fans, Side Window Panel, Top HDD Dock

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Huge case. Plenty of expansion for whatever you would need to do. Amazing amount of USB ports on the front. All of the cables are labeled well and the case has a GREAT built in cable management system. Highly recommended if you want a water cooled solution or are planning on an SLi configuration.

Cons: I had higher expectations. The case panel screws looked used and cheap. Not that anyone is looking at the back of the computer, it just felt cheap compared to the price of the case.

Other Thoughts: Honestly, had I known how big this case actually was I likely would've chosen a different Rosewill case. This thing is HUGE. I prefer the Rosewill LINE-M - Micro ATX Mini as it is perfect for a single GPU / cheap gaming solution build.

Pros: Super happy with this processor. It is worth the extra $30 for the K.

Cons: No cons. Never been disappointed in a processor.
