Rosewill RDCR-11003 - 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: None. This piece of garbage does not work

Cons: All of it. Cheap, horrible design that it not compatible with any motherboard I try to pair it up with. A total garbage

Other Thoughts: I would prefer to spend money on a vasectomy rather than in Rosewill. 0/10 will never buy again

NETGEAR ProSAFE 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch (GS105 v5) - Lifetime Warranty
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Can't complain.

Cons: Used to have the same model but DIED after 4 month of use. Garbage equipment

Other Thoughts: I would go with another option, but this was the cheapest

ASUS MAXIMUS VI FORMULA LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX gaming board with double-sided ROG Armor, 23C-degrees cooler CrossChill and 120dB SNR, 600ohm audio
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: .Can watercool the motherboard
.7 fan connectors (all independent). One of them is next to the actual opening for where the fan next to the motherboard goes. Also, there is a second situated near where if you were going to install a H100 would go. Very flexible
.BIOS is to die for. One click mods? I'm in!
.Can add wifi (not sure why you would want to) without sacrificing an extra pci-e slot.

Cons: Diminishing returns.

Anyone would tell you that a motherboard that's about $100-150 would do the job good enough whereas buying this is splurging.

Other Thoughts: A motherboard is like a good foundation. My previous purchase did not have a frontal USB 3.0 connector. Therefore, the purchase of the VI formula hit all the points I was looking for, and them more.

If you are going to spend good money, I would say spend it on the items that get modified with less frequency.

A good motherboard could last you a long time. I still have friends running 4 and 5-series GTX video cards and can still run the latest games (for you that don't know, those are 3 and 4 year old cards on motherboards as old as those).

HDD and other peripherals might be changed easier, but motherboard changing is a full rebuild step. Why not get something that you won't have to touch for years to come?

(btw I'm a Joe Shmoe...just my personal oppinion here)
