This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Got it November 2014 and still works like a charm, Fit perfectly into my Coolermaster storm enforcer case with no troubles getting the I/O shield on.
-Awesome bios really easy to navigate
-Love the dark black color
-Very good for overclocking if you have an unlocked CPU
-3 chassis fan connectors
-Tough and not too flimsy
Cons: None at all
Other Thoughts: Absolutely no problems with this motherboard was really easy to build with and had no trouble with it lining up with the standoffs. (Had trouble with this before with an ASUS motherboard and an Antec case, was not sure if it was the motherboard or the case before)
Remember people dont usually right a review unless they had a problem with something, dont be thrown off by all the bad reviews this is a great motherboard for a first time builder.
If you want real information you can trust on this motherboard or pretty much any piece of hardware look it up at toms hardware forums they will have nothing but good things to say about it
This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: This thing is stupid fast, with RAPID mode and high performance mode on under power settings I get 1206 MB/s read and 1146 MB/s write. Everything is really quick and snappy windows boots and loads all my startup programs in 15 seconds where with my old HDD 30 seconds to boot and it took forever for all the programs to start up. Amazing drive especially in RAPID mode.
Cons: The restoration software (After I updated to the latest firmware) took like an hour but I was willing to waitREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Amazing case, the metal it is made out of is really strong and feels high quality, probably the biggest thing for me because I hate flimsy cases that feel cheap. Love the way the windows doesn't show the drive cage and doesn't have the stupid spot for a fan that every case seems to have these days. I use a single 500gb SSD (840 Evo) so I don't need it anyway's. The front LED fan isn't too bright and moves a lot of air while still remaining quiet, with the choice of an optional 200m fan at the top (I just put my 2 120m fans from my old case there instead) Lots of room for big CPU heatsinks the case is really wide but not too tall.
Lots of room at the back panel for cable management and places to tie them down (The case comes with a bunch of cable ties also) Bottom mount psu, black interior, back exhaust fan, and an ample amount of screws for additional 120m fans and whatever else you need.
Really love this case one of the best I've worked with, best thing about it though is the strong metal it just screams high quality.
Cons: -PSU dust filter could be a little better its just a sheet that sticks in indents on the bottom
-Back panel could have used thumbscrews but the front one with the windows does have them, will need a philips screwdriver to remove it
Other Thoughts: Not much else that I can think of the case is perfect and again I love that its not flimsy(Hard to tell through pictures!) Really strong metal so it will take a lot to damage it while shipping. The case I used before (Antec one) had tons of damage and wobbled back and forth.. Would not recommend that case it sucks, Im done with antec cases for good.READ FULL REVIEW
