This review is from: ASRock B75M-GL LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: One of the easiest boards I've ever installed. I love the fact that I could use my wireless mouse while setting the system up. I installed the chip and a 3rd party heatsink/fan and it fired right up. The board recognized everything in my system without even worrying about driver installation.
Other Thoughts: This is my first ASRock board but I'm sure it won't be my last. The only tip I can offer is never use the included heatsink when you change chips. I hate the push-pin configuration so it's worth it to me to spend a little more to get an upgraded heatsink.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This was, without a doubt, the easiest CPU upgrade I've ever done. My Win 7 installation literally flew through the process. The chip runs cool which is a plus when you live in the desert. Even under a load it has never exceeded 28F.
Cons: I haven't found one yet.
Other Thoughts: I debated for awhile on whether to save for an i5 or go with i3. My decision was made for me when my old Socket 775 started running at 60F even without a load. Being on a fixed income, this was the perfect solution for me. I never overclock so the fact that the chip is locked was never an issue. I will, eventually, go up to the i5 but, for now, this i3 has solved my heat issues.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Quiet, Easy Set-up, Two paper trays, Closable for dust prevention. If you are looking for an all-around printer that gives you both good paper and picture copies, definitely get this one.
Cons: Not really a con but the included driver disk didn't include drivers for Win XP Pro 64-bit OS but they were easy to find on the Canon Website.
Other Thoughts: I bought this printer to replace my Canon i450 which didn't support a 64-bit OS. This printer is quieter than my old i450. The two paper trays are lovely and the fact that I can close the front when not in use keeps the dust from the desert from getting into the printer.READ FULL REVIEW
