ASRock 960GM/U3S3 FX 95W Socket AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Good Mobo, but no Power Saving Options. 06/19/2014

This review is from: ASRock 960GM/U3S3 FX 95W Socket AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: This board has performed really well since I got it, setup was easy, it boots quickly and has just been a workhorse. It was a great buy for the money.

Cons: Now that i'm more concerned with my power bill then benchmark scores, i've been spending time trying to pull my power bill down. Unfortunately, delving into the BIOS gives zero options for sleep and hibernation modes. Only tools to boost performance. I'm really disappointed that i can't get his mobo to switch things off when they aren't in use to save some money on my power bill. We have 5 computers up and running in our home and saving as much power on each of them is really important.

Other Thoughts: The Motheboard is solid and a good price. I have to take an egg off for the lack of green power options. If you don't care about how much juice your computer uses, this is a good board.

Dell S2740L Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I've had multiple monitors throughout my life, and this beast is without a doubt the best i've ever owned. The colors are so vivid and bright, the text is so crisp, there's just no comparison between this monitor and any others i have owned.

Cons: The only Con to this monitor is the shininess of the screen. It's incredibly reflective and any light source near you is sure to be reflected off the screen. If you use it in an area where there is no light sources behind you while you use it, you'll never notice.

Other Thoughts: I'm glad i took the plunge and bought this monitor, I hope to buy another one before they change the external design, running two of these monitors side-by-side would be awesome!

CORSAIR CXM series CX430M 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Corsair Power Supplies are just solid. What more can you say? They look great, and they work, not having a faulty component destroying power supply is a pro all in itself.

Cons: None that i can think of.

Other Thoughts: If you've ever had a power supply go bad on you, or have dealt with low quality brands, you'll understand why it's such a relief to have a quality and reliable power supply. What can i say, Corsair has made me a fanboy.
