This review is from: ASRock Z170 Pro4S LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: - Z170 ATX board at the sale price can't be beat
- Simple to flash for Sky OC
- running 3200 memory on it
Cons: - none so far
Other Thoughts: - Not this board's fault but my Samsung Spinpoint F3 HDD (HD502HJ) bricked after connecting to it. I had an older drive with a firmware bug. If you have a Spinpoint F3, make sure to update its firmware before using it here.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: not a single crash/reboot problem since purchase unlike my previous d-link.
Cons: had to update stock firmware to dd-wrt for static ip
Other Thoughts: pretty old hardware but reliable.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN VF1000 2 Ball VGA Cooler
Pros: Perfect for 4870. Easy installation.
Cons: Uses its own fan speed controller. I'd prefer to use something driver level.
Other Thoughts: This actually helped me two fold since my HIS 4870 fan died on me, realized its aftermaket fan did a poor job plus the card did not have ram sinks. While I don't get the killer temps some people here did it managed to cut my temps from gpu 60 idle to 45 idle and memory i/o 70 idle to 47 idle.READ FULL REVIEW
