ASRock A88M-G/3.1 FM2+ / FM2 A88X (Bolton D4) Micro ATX Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs A pretty good board 05/15/2016

This review is from: ASRock A88M-G/3.1 FM2+ / FM2 A88X (Bolton D4) Micro ATX Motherboard

Pros: Just about any connection you could want. Mostly great build quality.

Cons: It took me a while to find this, but many sites are not very clear on M.2 compatibility. And sites are also not very clear about the controllers used in various M.2 drives. I bought an ADATA M.2 from the other seller named after a big river and later found out that on the Premier Pro SP900 M.2 they use a SATA controller. The slot on this board is ONLY compatible with pci-e. So I am not mad that what I got isn't compatible, I am slightly ticked that I had to dig a little deeper to find this out.
Also, the list of compatible drives IS NOT ON ASROCK's WEBSITE! Bad Asrock. It is on the very last page of the english section in the motherboard manual.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend it. It is a great board. Just be aware that if you intend to use M.2 that it uses the correct controller. Seems to me like if they use a different protocol that they should have a different connector, but they don't. They look exactly the same.

ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Great fan, lousy install 04/24/2014

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED

Pros: Quiet and cool, just as advertised. Looks good

Cons: A pain in the rear to install on AMD boards.

Other Thoughts: I love this cooler. I really do. But Zalman REALLY needs to fix their AMD install parts. Not hard to do Zalman. Whoever is making the AMD adapter brackets for these should be shot. You can see clearly in the instructions that the brackets in picture are designed to sit lower so that the screws can reach the anchors from the back plate. They are nearly flat in reality and have to be bent and mangled so the screws can reach the anchors.
So Zalman, either fix the brackets or give us longer screws. How hard would it be to just put some longer screws in the package? I have installed several of these now and it is clear that my fans were not an anomaly.

XFX Radeon HD 6670 DirectX 11 HD-667X-CLF3 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Inexpensive, smaller than most other 6670 cards. Does the job.

Cons: Doesn't install itself

Other Thoughts: Don't listen the poor review the guy who rated this one star. That person doesn't know what they are doing. And to rate the card poorly because you incorrectly assumed the card doesn't support one feature you want is childish. This card works very well, supports multiple monitors. Works with Linux! I actually have this card installed on a DL380 server. It handles whatever graphical duties I throw at it.
