ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - UEFI bios is very straightforward and workable
- CPU overclocks are near perfect for stability
- Supports ram that can be clocked quite high

Cons: Nothing note-worthy.

Other Thoughts: I usually buy ASUS motherboards and I plan to keep on doing that. However, I wanted to try something new and heard great things about ASRock the past couple of years. I can see why after testing out this board.

I absolutely love the way the UEFI bios is laid out, and overclocking with an i5 3570k is a breeze. I had it stable at 5.0ghz on liquid before settling on a much more reasonable 4.2ghz.

I would definitely buy this board or one of its big brothers again if the need would arise.

AMD FX-4170 Zambezi Quad-Core 4.2GHz (4.3GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD4170FRGUBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - fairly easy to overclock
- inexpensive
- decent gaming performance
- Decent load temps on liquid

Cons: - heavy power draw for a quad-core (although this is a broad bulldozer issue)
- single thread performance like all of the dozer series leaves much to be desired.

Other Thoughts: "Upgraded" from a 1090T. The goal was to run games more smoothly. Success after overclocking this thing to 4.6ghz on liquid. Going to wait and see if Piledriver is worth upgrading for and then maybe drop one of the 8 cores in my pc.

APEVIA X-PLORER2 Series X-PLORER2-PK Black/Pink Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Its pink (if you're into that sort of thing)
- Bottom mount psu
- inexpensive
- Internal thermometer front panel gauge is pretty neat

Cons: - Non-existent cable management
- poor airflow

Other Thoughts: Bought this for the girlfriend's build. HAD to be pink. No place to run cables. There's quite a bit of cable clutter in the bottom of the case.
