ASRock Z97 Extreme3 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Great for carrying over older Components 07/23/2014

This review is from: ASRock Z97 Extreme3 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Highly impressed with the BIOS and the ability for a Veteran User to Tweak it, as well as the presets ability to "get it right" for Novice Users.

3x PCI slots for older hardware.

No more Downclocking the CPU if using it for a server, you can set limits right in the BIOS to make it more efficient!!!

Really a great looking board.

Plenty of of USB 3.0 ports front and back.

Dehumidify option for you guys that have the PC in a refrigerated area.

OnBoard Ram Drive (Might be software, maybe the ASUS Response team can clear that up )

Cons: Only one PCIe 1x slot, unless you only use one GPU, then the other PCIe 8x slot should run it just fine.

Only comes with two SATA cables, might keep a few less experienced builders from finishing there build that day if they forgot to buy extras.

Only one Ethernet port.

Other Thoughts: It's not an Enthusiasts board by any standard I know of, but it is very capable.

This board is perfect for upgrading old workstations and servers that hold PCI cards in them, and at this price point..... make a pretty good board for a moderate Gaming PC.

ASRock Fatal1ty Z97X Killer LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Great md-ship board for gamers! 06/18/2014

This review is from: ASRock Fatal1ty Z97X Killer LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Great environment for Ocing with available options and equipment.

M.2 Interface is flawless (read manual for proper use)

RAID controller is well balanced.

Cons: Latest "BIOS" upgrade seems not to work (Had to use the second CMOS CHIP, but was able to recover from previous)

SLI not yet usable on my old cards??? (GTX 460's)

My 4TB drive does not seem to scale properly, falls 570MB short of my other board.

Other Thoughts: Very nice looking board, with the latest technologies pushing your CPU and RAM to it's limits if you know how. Does great with my CPU, and it's not even a K model.

With the right BIOS update it will be an awesome board, Asus/ Asrock always seems to take 6-8 months to get it right.

Seagate ST4000VX000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Great for Torrents as well 05/21/2014

This review is from: Seagate ST4000VX000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Surveillance Hard Drive

Pros: Drive is built and programed for long Simultaneous writes across multiple platters and multiple heads.

Reads while writing were better than any drive I have tried before.

Massive size is well worth the price.

Requires GPT File system for full size.

Runs very cool and quiet.

Cons: NTFS file system will require multiple Partitions, older devices will not be able to see drives this large, even some newer ones may need a Firmware, BIOS update...

A little slow for massive file transfers, but that is not what it is built for.

Other Thoughts: Live streaming video as I'm recording 5 video feeds, and it never even burps.
