ASRock 970 PRO3 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works, and takes all the parts I have on it no problem.

Cons: The board likes to bend when I put peripherals into the rear USB and other ports. The CPU fan sometimes shakes the board a bit.
Last of all, I'm not sure if there is something I'm doing wrong with it, but every time I boot up my machine, I have to do a hard shutdown and then restart it, then it works fine. I'm not sure if it's my GPU or something else, but It's annoying and probably destructive to my hardware.

Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The seek times are very low, the drive is very quite during operation, and it stays cool enough with proper ventilation. I'm very satisfied.

Cons: Can sound a little scratchy when spinning up, though my drive is a special case (which I don't care to list here).

ASUS PCE-N15 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Express 300/300Mbps Transfer/Receive Rate 64-bit WEP, 128-bit WEP, WPA2-PSK, WPA-PSK, WPS support
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: As stated before, it works like i'd expect it to -- On regular browsing. Also, it was easy to install.

Cons: The real problem with this thing is that it makes gaming utterly impossible. It will maintain a connection in the first few seconds of when you launch a game, but will completely shut off when you get into a multiplayer match. As soon as you come back to the desktop with the game minimized, it will snap back to connection and be ready to go. But as soon as you get back to the game, it quits again. It's very annoying and disheartening. No drivers are available to fix the problem, and the antennae are both oriented directly in the direction of the router, which is less than 20 feet away (with some walls in the way). Now, you might thing that the router having walls in the way blocks some of the signal, which it does, but my cell phone and tablet both connect fine from the same posistion.

Other Thoughts: I'm disappointed. I wouldn't recommend this to an enemy... Okay, that's a lie, but it's the way I feel.
