This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme6 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Great OC ability. Easy to use. Boots right up, no problems. Lots of case fan connectors. Could always use more though.
Cons: Heat sink on the top of the motherboard interferes with my radiator. Using a Corsair Obsidian 550D and the AIO H110. Doesn't make toast.
Other Thoughts: Good board for the money.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H110 Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 280mm
Pros: Cool! Everything runs cool! Dropped temps significantly. Quiet. Priced just slightly higher with discounts than the top end air cooler.
Cons: I so wanted to 5 egg this thing. Directions are horrible! They are single one liners. Including the AMD and Intel hardware caused some frustration. No where on the box or in the instructions does it say it comes pre-loaded with water. I had to call Corsair to get my answer. I searched the Internet as well.
Other Thoughts: Would I recommend this product. Yes! I would just tell people the problems I had and everything would be fine!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Atx, 2 PCIe slots. Price. I took a risk on the possibility of running Hackintosh. Haven't installed it yet. Over clock pretty easily using a i5-3570K. BIOS graphics are nice.
Cons: Manual is complete garbage. Nothing is labeled well on the board. Couldn't tell the difference between SATA3 and SATA6. I didn't know this wasn't an award bios, but this bios isn't bad. No drivers CD. Did come with 2 SATA cables and a back plate. That is it. Better hope you have a 2nd PC or some way of loading drivers. May or may not support NVidia SLI.
Also, trying to get the system to boot with the external graphics card was a bit of a PITA. Finding the option and knowing it would do what I want cost me time booting.
Other Thoughts: Debating on sending this back. I am not happy with it. I would have given it a lower egg score if it continued to give me fits. I would have given it another egg if it included more extra's. Hardware, driver CD, etc... etc....READ FULL REVIEW
