4 out of 5 eggs 01/06/2013

This review is from: Rosewill RTK-002 Anti-Static Wrist Strap

Pros: Does what it says on the tin.

Cons: did not come in a tin.

Pros: This motherboard is a really low price, not only in comparison to other motherboards of the same type, but also just for the amount of stuff it has on it. The BIOS automatically recognized and overclocked for the 16 GB of 1333 RAM that I plugged into it, and it came with detailed and easy-to-understand instructions and software.

Cons: When I first set it up, I didn't have a hard drive ready, so I was running it off of a Linux pen drive. With that setup, I was having the same problems that a few other commenters had with full-screen video. Now that I'm running Windows 8 on an internal HDD, fullscreen video on 720p youtube videos are pretty smooth with the occasional hiccup, but 1080p is still pretty choppy. I haven't tried any driver upgrades yet, but I'm not particularly worried about it since my setup only involves a 720p screen. if you're using a 1080p setup, you might want to consider more powerful graphics.

Other Thoughts: I wish the maxed-out ram would help the video issues, but for my setup it runs well enough that it's not a huge deal. I'm also only using youtube videos as a reference, so DVDs and Blu-Ray might be a different story. All in all, I'm very satisfied. Since i'm going to be using this computer primarily to draw, it's not going to be the bottleneck on my system. For people using it as an HTPC, it might be more of an issue.

Pros: works. great value. haven't checked it for errors yet, but both sticks showed up in my BIOS, so there can't be anything terribly wrong with them. the heat spreader is low-profile, which is just what i needed for my mini-ITX case.

Cons: it appears to be randomly accessing things, so unless a memory test finds errors, i don't see anything wrong with them.
