ASUS P8Z77-V LE LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -Price
-Reliability
-Speed [Native USB 3.0 SATA III]
-User friendly (GUI)
-Easy Installation

Cons: -Compatibility [See "Other thoughts"]

Other Thoughts: This has been a solid motherboard and I am very pleased with my purchase. There have been a few compatibility issues with the board though. Most notably USB compatibility. My favorite mouse [GIGABYTE M6800] did not work no matter what I did (Mobo/mouse drivers, UPnP, etc.) so unfortunately I had to buy a similar mouse style and settle for that. Other USB devices such as card readers and keyboards failed to respond when plugged into the mobo USB ports. Again, different models would be fine - rather confusing, but still a very solid mobo. Overclocking is a breeze too, the GUI is very user friendly and intuitive. Been running the system below for 2-years with no trouble.

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 ST1000DM005/HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner

Pros: -Reliability
-Speed
-Price
-Easy of Installation

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: Wonderful hard-drive (HDD)! It is a shame that Samsung in no longer producing the Spinpoint line of HDDs. I have both a 2TB and 1TB versions. They have lasted nearly 2 years with numerous reformats and are still running strong. If you can find these models anywhere then pick them up - worth their weight in gold.
