ASRock Z97M OC Formula LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Halt problem occurs almost daily even after motherboard replacement 10/18/2016

This review is from: ASRock Z97M OC Formula LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: The motherboard has lots of features and the customer service people are super.

Cons: The original motherboard was replaced as it would stop recognizing the M.2 SSD while running.
Unfortunately, the replacement motherboard continues with the same problem. It may be minutes into operation, or days into operation.

Other Thoughts: I've decided not to purchase another ASRock motherboard.

Toshiba OCZ RD400 M.2 512GB PCI-Express 3.0 x 4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) RVD400-22280-512G

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The M.2 card came with a screw and a little foam pad. The 512GB M.2 card was recognized by the ASUS Maximus VIII Hero motherboard without issue.

Cons: The read/write speeds as measured by Crystal Disk Mark Version 5.1.2 x64 are: 2,220/967 MB/s (Sequential Q32T1) I don't understand why the write speed is less than half of the read speed. I contacted ASUS and they didn't have any drivers to improve the write speed.

Other Thoughts: The advertised speeds are up to read/write 2,600/1,600 MB/s. I used Crystal Disk Mark which generally gives generous numbers. PC Benchmark provided on the Windows store gives a read/write speed of 1,815/101 MB/s. I'm thinking maybe OCZ or Toshiba should provide drivers.


Pros: The aluminum case is very sturdy. The access screws are easy to use. You can swap out the external DC power supplies if one goes bad. The unit handles large 4+ TB hard drives. The blue LED lights let you know when it is on and when data is passing.

Cons: Slightly heavy due to the aluminum case.

Other Thoughts: I own three older models and they all still work.
