GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-UD4H LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner

Pros: the 40A IR3553 PowIRStage IC is really want you want on a motherboard. It is the most critical in terms of stability, performance and reliability. It's almost entirely responsible for delivering power to your CPU and RAM (VRIM + DRAM). All these other companies boast buzzword marketing terminologies which are probably designed to confuse you, but really, they ain't got an inch on what the 40A delivers. This really is the most crucial component on a motherboard.

Cons: UEFI Bios seems wonky, but works

Other Thoughts: Best board for the money!

Pros: Wow this thing is HEAVY- which is a good. Pulled it out of its box for the first time and the thing felt like i was lifting a stone. Very quality of a feel. The board is also nice and large- love that ATX form factor. But the thing I love most was it's price. Got it for way less than what is listed here, it was on sale. But this board is worth full. Has everything I need + the Faudio amp. Crossfire works perfectly (havent tried SLI though). Install/raid was a breeze. Clocking is intuitive and stable.

Cons: My only gripe is the UEFI bios. Although packed with options and everything working perfectly, the menus are a little glitchy to navigate, it just feels a little cheap and SPD detects my ram at a lower settings, but is totally configurable.

Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 4 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Works great, did a 200hr. grueling test cycle (simulated about 2 years worth of use) - 40$ off a quality SSD because noobs have trouble using OCZ hardware, which isn't exactly user friendly.. I assure you these "refurbished" units were returned for no reason. no bad cells

Cons: none, the nand is made by intel and the controller is rock solid. there isnt anything that could possibly go wrong, it either works or it doesn't
