Pros: Great layout, love the 4 ram slots and two PCIe x16 slots.
Cons: Second PCIe x16 slot runs at x4 (not really a drawback, just is what it is)
Other Thoughts: I swapped a 960GM board for this 970M and experienced a noticeable increase in FPS in BF4. The video card is even running at higher quality settings now (the game adjusts quality automatically to achieve FPS- on the 960GM is was downrating the quality).
The overlocking tool is also SUPER easy to use- I was able to go from 3.1ghz to 3.8ghz on my 8 core FX-8120 with literally three mouse clicks. The result is a marked increase in my 3dMark scores, not to mention the other benefits that come with overclocking. Couldn't be easier!
I couldn't even get to 3.4ghz on the 960gm board that this one replaced.
This review is from: Bulova 98B160 Strap Men's Quartz Watch
Pros: Looks great. Strap is very high quality.
Cons: Poor precision, internal parts look plastic. When you adjust the time, all three hands move a little, kind of like a cheap wall clock. The second hand never aligns with any of the tick marks.
Other Thoughts: I was expecting this to be better than my Citizen Eco-Drive Perpetual watch, but it falls far flat (and the Citizen was the same price as this lists for). I was disappointed in the quality but I got it for a really low price on black friday so I can't complain. Won't be buying another Bulova though- the quality doesn't seem to match the price.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock 880GM-LE FX AM3+ AMD 880G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Much faster in the benchmarks than my 785G board, when it works.
Cons: Almost never works. The northbridge runs at nearly 60C at idle, even if I put a fan right on it. As soon as I run a game or any intensive program, it shuts down. I tried different ram and GPU to no avail- it appears to be a thermal issue with the northbridge. Maybe it needs a bigger heatsink? Oh well, not my problem- I'm going to return it.READ FULL REVIEW
