This review is from: Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield Quad-Core 3.06 GHz LGA 1366 130W BX80601950 Processor
Pros: Performs under pressure, at high temps and will chew up and spit out anything you throw at it. Well suited for overclocking, very forgiving.
Cons: Can get quite hot. Best used with a hydro/radiator cooler system.
Other Thoughts: I've had this beast for over 3 years, nearly pushed to its limits everyday with gaming and video processing. Still working like new. This processor will last long.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS ROG PCI-E 240GB PCIe 2.0 x 2 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) RAIDR Express
Pros: Extremely fast read/write rates. Excellent concept that works extremely well. Reliablility-been running for 1 week about 12 hours a day, so far no crashes or freezes. I'm running it on an ASUS Sabertooth Z87 with two GeForce 770s in SLI mode. Abosolutely no problems at all. Just plugged in another 770, linked together with the sli bridge and windows 7 did the rest on boot up.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Make sure you dont move the switch to Duo Mode when installing windows OS because it wont be recognized and the OS installation will not be able to continue.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS SABERTOOTH Z87 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Very rigid design, with a type of outer armor shell which directs airflow and keeps dust out. Multiple thermometers spread across the board in zones for the cpu, memory , vga(pci-e connector and power connectors. Motherboard management software suite for optimizing thermal conditions and viewing thermal status(thermal radar). This is a great improvement from just viewing temperature information associated with onboard devices, here you actually get a visual representation of the temperature environment which makes fan/cooling placement strategy much easier. Easy to use bios with descriptions/tooltips of what exactly you are modifying.
Cons: None yet so far. I only have been using it for one week and it continues to amaze me.
Other Thoughts: Best motherboard i've used so far and this is about my 7th custom pc build.READ FULL REVIEW
