This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme6 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: This motherboard looks great. It comes with a power switch which made my pre boot outside the case an easy task without the fear of shorting two metal prongs to start her up! The Dr. Diagnostic tool with the LED panel made it a snap to diagnose any problems...had there been any! I will be overclocking sometime soon in the future and the overclocking utility, as well as high quality BIOS should make it simple!
Cons: When paired with my Double D HD 7870 Graphics Card it would not boot up but Dr. Diagnostic kept signaling either an A2, A6 or another numbered code. So, I took out the card and then it booted. After installing my OS and Hard Drive, I re installed the card and then the basic drivers available in Windows allowed me to use the card and download the newest drivers. It was obviously a case of missing drivers but this should help somebody!
Other Thoughts: I liked the software that came with the Motherboard, but beware downloading it all right away, it can become a headache later on!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: These sticks of memory worked right out of the box, which of course makes one happy. I usually have open enough programs to reach anywhere from 6-7 GB of memory and these handle that like a pro. I would definitely recommend these sticks if you are not looking to overclock. Also, their blue case and metal frame are absolutely brilliant. I paired these with an ASRock Z77 Extreme6 motherboard and an intel i5-3570k CPU and have never been happier!

Pros: This little 700W PSU is brilliant. When I say little I mean little. It was a little shocking at first that a machine that small and light could put out 700W but it does. Its carbon fiber frame makes it lighter then the other aluminum framed PSU's I have owned in the past. But it still feels strong! I need around 600W of power and not only does this PSU handle that, it never gets hot, not even working 24 hours at ~600W. Also, the fan is practically inaudible. Well done FSP group.
Cons: At first, it felt fragile and I was concerned. Over inspection, and a few knuckle raps on the case I decided it was simply my surprise as to the weight and look, rather than the quality.
Other Thoughts: I would purchase this PSU again.READ FULL REVIEW
