MSI X99S SLI Plus LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very solid motherboard. Had all the features I needed for my own needs. Board worked flawlessly on first time powerup. BIOS took some getting used to, but will work for me. Placement of all the connectors was great. This is the second MSI board I have used in my own personal builds, and I haven't had any issues at all. The OC Genie button worked great taking my speed from 3.5 to 3.9 by simply pressing this button. It also overclocked my RAM from 2133 to 2400 automatically.

Cons: None so far (knock on wood).

G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4-19200) Desktop Memory Model F4-2400C15Q-16GRR

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Bought these for my own personal new build. This RAM Just works! This is the second set of stick I've purchased from G.Skill, and I have absolutely NO issues with them. The overclocked from 2133 to 2400 by using the XMP feature in the BIOS.

Cons: Expensive... I'm sure the prices will come down soon.

Irritates me that the RED, BLACK, and BLUE products are all priced differently on NewEgg (and other sites). Why should we have to pay more for a different color heat spreader, when the base product is exactly the same. Kind of messed up my consistent color scheme, but I wasn't going to pay $30 more for the color.

Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011048-WW) Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Cube Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: After reading many reviews on this case, it sounded like what I was looking for. After I got everything installed, I really like this case. It has massive amounts of room, and the cable management is just plain awesome! Placement for all the mountable components is perfect. The Optical (5.25) bays are vertical, not optimal for me, but it will work for me. Love the modular 2.5" bays for SSDs. Simply attach an additional bay (up to 4 total) if you need it. The fans are not that loud, so it is a fairly quiet case. Really nice clear plexiglass window on the Mobo side of the case, filling up most of the side panel. I have a graphics card and a CPU cooler with pulsing lights, so this make it pretty cool to look at.

Cons: Only 2 standard size hard drive (3.5") bays. Since I had 4 older hard drives in my previous build, I ended up migrating the data off one drive to a 7200rpm 2.5" drive to get it in the new system. Looks like those 3/4 TB size drives are looking pretty good right now.

Other Thoughts: I will be exploring taking an old 3.5" bay of out one of my older PC cases and cutting it down, painting it (black), and finding a way to mount it in the back side of the case. There is ample room in the back side (side where the PS resides) to mound a small 3.5" bay if I can cut it down and find some compatible mounting holes to attach it to!
