This review is from: MSI Z77A-G45 Gaming LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Looks cool
SATA and USB 3.0 are sideways
Cons: Four blue SUPER bright LEDs at the top right of the board, gets annoying at night.
When I tried to install some Mushkin memory (16 gigs 2x8 at 2133) in dual channel (DIMM 2 and 4) and the computer wouldn't even go into the BIOS. Just black screen across both monitors. I tired flashing the BIOS but that did nothing to help the issue. So I'm stuck running in DIMM 1 and 2 for now.
Pros: My fist SSD of my own, and I must say that I will never go back! Windows 7 is at the log in screen from a cold boot (overnight) in 15-20 seconds, and when in Windows everything is snappy.
Cons: Not free?
Other Thoughts: Got the SSD on sale for $80, worth every penny!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This RAM is blistering fast, I've yet to use more then four gigs of it, but its nice to know I have plenty of head room.
Cons: The heatsinks on them are a little taller then I expected, so bare that in mind.READ FULL REVIEW
