ECS B85H3-M9 (V1.0) LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice layout, and extra PCIe slot for two-slot OEM chassis like the HP 3XXX. USB 3.0 (both onboard and rear-panel), four SATA ports, and two USB 2.0 headers. Rich set of bundled software, including PowerDVD. All-solid capacitors. HDMI port on the back panel.

Cons: Quality control? (This is the first DOA board I've bought.) No DVI port, but with these budget boards, it seems to be either HDMI or DVI, one or the other.

Other Thoughts: I put a lot of work into installing this in a very tight chassis, and it was a big disappointment that the board was DOA. This should be a great budget board.

There is no SPDIF header, like the Newegg feature section stated.

HIS iCooler Boost Radeon R7 240 H240FC1G 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quiet fan, superior performance, reduced power consumption (versus the budget cards in use in 2013).

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a borrowed XFX 6600 DDR3; fan noise is vastly reduced, and the Windows Experience Index has risen to 7.1.

Cooler Master Vortex Plus - CPU Cooler with Aluminum Fins and 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Efficient cooling and quiet fan. Fits in tight low profile chassis. Multi-fit. Reasonably priced .

Cons: More expensive than simpler products. The plastic pegs that fasten the assembly to the motherboard are fragile.

Other Thoughts: I installed an XPS 8500 mainboard in an aftermarket case, and this cooler was a perfect fit. Surprisingly, despite its sophistication, it was cheaper than the OEM unit.

Would buy again.
