BIOSTAR RACING Z170GT7 LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs This has been my best ETH coin mining board by far. 08/01/2016

This review is from: BIOSTAR RACING Z170GT7 LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I mine coins more then anything else with my pc builds.
I use windows 7 pro
I have 7 diy pcs built
This board allows me to run 4 rx 480's 24/7 with really good results.
No risers just an open build using the diypc alpha-d86 black acrylic atx bench case.
the corsair ax 760 psu
a m2 ssd
2 x 8gb sticks of hypernx ram.
this build just runs and runs and runs. really happy with this setup.

Cons: I only have two of these I should have only used these and not any other mother boards.
If you use rx 480 cards you can run this without risers.

Other Thoughts: I posted photos of this build on another website since it truly is my best etc coin rig. doing about 100mh at 600 watts. I can not be any happier about then I am . It is merely a question of how long does it hold up. If it give me a year or more it will have been one of my better purchases in mobos

Acer G6 Series G226HQLBbd (UM.WG6AA.B01) Black 21.5

Pros: For me this is a five star item. Price was good it works well it is really clear. But I purchased this for an order friend he has the start of cataracts and complains the screen is too bright. I readjusted it for him and a week later he wanted it to be darker.
frankly it was a bit too dark at the lower settings and this brightness issue may be his eyes but I dropped rating to 4 stars because he was not quite pleased with it.

Cons: for me none bur for the user of this he claims it is too bright. So my guess is if you have had brightness issues with monitors this may not be for you.

Other Thoughts: I like this monitor for my use and I may buy one since it seems to be really good.

Corsair Carbide Series CC-9011085-WW Black/Red Steel ATX Mid Tower SPEC-ALPHA Mid-Tower Gaming Case ATX (not included) Power Supply
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: This case can be cooled very well. Feet lift it higher then normal so you can put it on a short rug.
While I would prefer the white model the red one is good.

Cons: I use dvds and cds it does not have a place for them. The top of the case has a cool shape so I can not use a small external player as the top is not level. So this is more of a true gamer case.
I marked it 3 star for no place for disc player 1 star off
and it came with a dent right where the psu slides in. So the psu did not fit without some careful metal work bend the psu opening back into place.

Other Thoughts: I am an Eggspert reviewer and since I will use this case for mining Eth coin and gaming it will be good for me. I will drop in a biostar z170 mother board and use 2 gpus. I will run it 24/7/365.

Note I only opened this case examined it and just started to fit the psu into place.
I have quite a few carbide corsair cases. That are okay for mining/gaming but are just a bit too hard to cool off. When I get this case fully working I will compare the cooling ability to the carbide corsair case i have. Case does look pretty cool to the eye. Based on packing I wonder if other people will have the bent psu opening.
