ASRock FM2A88X Extreme6+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Booted Kaveri even before I updated to P2.40. Seems to have a lot of features.

Cons: I specifically, carefully choose the appropriate G.Skill RAM for this unit to run at 2133. Won't. I select manual timings and speed and it won't boot. I use the preloaded settings and it won't boot. I get a big red 50 on the digital read out on the motherboard. Don't know if it is an update thing, but CPU-Z, HW Monitor and other apps all indicate that my CPU is running much slower than it should be. But I am able to run games alright so I am guessing/hoping they are misreading.

Also, after following the procedure to reset CMOS, I had all kinds of boot problems until I did it a second time. I let computer sit 30 seconds then leave the jumper on 10 seconds... still had issues. Eventually it worked tho'.

Other Thoughts: Error 50 indicates a memory problem. This is a new RAM kit and I took all precautions installing it. I have never had a problem with G.Skill before and Windows thinks I've got a full 16GB of RAM going ... everything runs fine at very slow RAM speeds. I will try shutting down and reseating the RAM but I am not so sure this isn't a motherboard issue as well.

GIGABYTE GV-N770OC-4GD GeForce GTX 770 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready WindForce 3X 450W Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: While it was working properly it was pretty awesome. Quiet, fast, handles everything.

Cons: Started throwing hardware errors. I see at least one per day, often 3. Especially noticeable when playing a game like Skyrim. Screen starts to slow and stutter, then it becomes a green checker board, goes black and comes back. Windows then tells you there was a video hardware error.

Other Thoughts: The card REALLY is nice. And it is amazingly quiet and runs very cool... but I don't know what's going on with the hardware failures. It could be bad VRAM... but I don't know.

Rosewill RCAB-11035 - 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Difficult to find things to write about cables. They feel solid, they are black, they snap right in where they are supposed to...

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I should have bought shorter. I KNEW that... don't know why I didn't.
