Pros: i got this little guy overclocked to 4.2ghz stable without a single hickup. im sure i could push it even further and be safe with my cooler master evo 212.
Cons: sadly no HT, which doenst really effect what i do very much overall.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS P8Z77-V LX LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: very easy bios setup. was able to over clock my cpu rather easily and fix the clock speeds of my ram with no ill side effects. I read that for some reason the ram defaults to 1333 clock speeds, but it was easily fixed. 4x3gb/s sata ports and 2x6gb/s sata ports come in handy. First boot was clean and problem free!!
Cons: not really a con, but 2 more sata 6gb/s second ports would have been great for this board.
Other Thoughts: this is a great budget board for anyone looking to get a great mid/high range gaming pc setup going.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAIDMAX Agusta ATX-605BT Black/Titanium Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: this thing is BIG! i thought i would have no problem fitting this under my desk but to my amazement it does not fit! its far to tall, so beside the desk it now rest.
I love the separate hard drive location. provides up to 6 locations for hard drive and has 2 addition SSD locations inside the main compartment i did not know about, so in total i could have 6 standard sata 3.5 drives and 2 SSD if i liked no problem!!!!
it feels great overall in construction. ive read a lot of mixed reviews about the case and chose it because of the overall style and form factor.
i also love the fact that it supports the HD audio from the MB in the front audio jacks. this allows me to use the large speakers when i want out of the rear, and my good headphones up front when i want to listen to music without sacrificing any quality.
this case is also wide enough for my Cooler Master Evo 212 to fit. this alone was a deal breaker for me. the heatsink is very large but its needed.
Cons: not really any cons to speak of, although the side cover on this model really could use a fan, but i wont subtract any eggs because i knew this before i purchased it.
Other Thoughts: buyers take note that the lower portion of the case is roughly 2 inched wider on each side compared to the main section of the case. this may cause some confusion if you plan to have the case put in a tight location.READ FULL REVIEW
