This review is from: NZXT Source 530 CA-SO530-M1 Matte Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: -This full tower case has the physical size of a mid tower!
-Accommodates E-ATX [extended ATX--12"X13"] mobo...meaning this case can even hold a SSI EEB size motherboard!
-Easy internal access
-Light for I/O panel
-Minimalist; it is deceivingly large inside and its understated size and lines make it rather sexy
-No flashing LEDs...unless you want them
-Big enough for H2O...even AIOs
-Quiet and provides excellent interior cooling
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this case to anyone needing:
-a solid full tower case
-a case under $100
- a case that does not adversely drawing attention to its self
Pros: This set of Corsair Vengeance is very difficult to find, but if you're lucky enough to snag a set...DO! As the title states, I've had this set for 3 years, running 24/7 [not now due to maintenance] and I've had no problems with errors, heat, or dead sticks. I code, listen to music and design all while reading research online. This set of memory rocks for multitasking!
I also like the fact these sticks are 4gb of memory, which doesn't tax my ASUSP9X79-E WS and i73930K. My system is blazing; which helps when I'm transferring music from albumsl to digital.
Cons: None for me.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS P9X79-E WS LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 SSI CEB Intel Motherboard
Pros: 1) Intuitive layout
2) Easy setup
3) Dual Intel I210 LAN ports--server grade make and model
4) 32-64 GB of RAM capable--using 32GB DDR3 1200-CL9
5) 7 Expansions/PCIe slots
7) Easy to overclock--even though it's a workstation board
8) Runs cool even when OC'ed
There's so much more, but the ability to Flash the BIOS externally was a life saver on the initial build.
Cons: 1) Marvell caching
2) Only 1 true USB 2.0 header
Other Thoughts: To ensure your PCIe slot is running at 3.0, simply go into the BIOS-->Advanced menu-->System Agent Configuration and select the slot(s) of your video card(s) and select "GEN3"...which is 3.0. Also, my 2nd Generation i7 [3930K] is cable of running PCIe 3.0. I have 2 x GTX680's w/ 4GB in SLI and have had no problems.READ FULL REVIEW
