This review is from: MSI 970A-G43 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Price, Performance
Cons: Board feels flimsy - Handle with 2 hands & you'll be just fine. When you install the main power connector, you want to hold the board up so you don't flex the board too much.
Other Thoughts: This budget board performs most tasks pretty well. It handles moderate gaming and office/school use with no issues. Very pleased for the money.
Well, I initially thought I got a bad board because the North Bridge was getting rocket hot, and so was the AMD FX6300! After a while, I finally realized that the board was fine - the power supply was going bad!!!
I've read a LOT of reviews of folks returning boards for a bad NorthBridge because of heat. I wonder how many of them are from a power supply going bad and NOT the board? I hope NEWEGG staff read this, because simply swapping PSU's might save a bunch of RMA's that are actually just fine.
This review is from: NZXT GAMMA Classic Series GAMA-001BK Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Price, Space, 7x 3.5" bays, 3.5" bays mounted crosswise in the case, not lengthwise!!!
Cons: A little light-weight
Other Thoughts: Great case for the money. Lots of room for huge air flow or the BIG water cooler units. The hdd rack mounts the drives width-wise in the case instead of length-wise, which means you CAN pack a full-length video card (or more) in here and still pack in 7 hard drives.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Stable, low power, cool, board that works well all around
Other Thoughts: Have had this board running in a system for some time. It is stable as a rock with a 6 core cpu and 8gb RAM. No issues. Boots fast. I've got it in a corporate environment and it is super stable.READ FULL REVIEW
