GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3P AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Terrible for overclocking. 10/13/2013

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3P AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Stable if you don't overclock. Expansion card ports that I needed, all SATA III ports, runs cool.

Cons: If you want to overclock - spend more. That's why this board is so cheap. I can't get stable past 4GHz (and my CPU is rated for 4GHz in turbo mode so can that really be called "overclocking?"). BIOS is nice looking but limited tweaking options.

Other Thoughts: If you don't care about overclocking this is a fine board to get. Install your 8pin ATX power connector BEFORE installing an aftermarket cooler (I never bothered with the stock cooler since they all suck) otherwise it's a major pain - cramped space. Takes ~15 minutes to feel around and get it in right.

After that, FORGET about overclocking. I got an AMD because they were cheaper and unlocked - thought I could overclock on a budget. NOT with this board.

ADATA Premier Pro SP900 ASP900S3-64GM-C 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is my first SSD that has been in two different computers. One I just recently built. My old computer was an ancient HP with a dual core Pentium. Using this drive as a system drive was an amazing speed improvement. With my new computer, it's even faster with SATA III connectors instead of weaksauce SATA II.

Also, it's completely silent.

Cons: Price obviously but that's just the state of SSDs these days.

Other Thoughts: If you tape it to your forehead people will think you are AWESOME.

XIGMATEK FCB (Fluid Circulative Bearing) Cooling System XLF XLF-F1454 140mm LED Blue Case Fan PSU Molex Adapter/extender included
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quiet, moves a lot of air, LEDs are easily removed.

Cons: LEDs. I don't like computer bling and this was the cheapest 140mm fan on Newegg. Snipping the LEDs was super easy, they're located on the outside edge of the fan.

Other Thoughts: Didn't come with a coupon for a free PSU of your choice from Newegg.
