This review is from: ASUS M5A97 PLUS AM3+ AMD 970/SB950 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: This mobo replaced my older A8N-e which seemed to be slowing down. Also the cpu did not support Virtualization Technology Support. New mobo time. So I upgraded mobo, cpu AMD FX-4350 and ram GSkill the ram iI use.
Cons: Not sure it is a con ot not BUT I can't seem to get back into the BIOS. When the system boots up it just sits there and I hit F2 and/or Delete....NOTHING.?? I have to repower the pc again which seems to get it to boot up to windows 10. I would like to get back into the BIOS to adjust a few settings but can't finger it out. My other pc is a a Asus as well and runs like a rocket.
Other Thoughts: Can Asus help with no boot into the BIOS ??? I would appreciate any help you could provide.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec KUHLER H2O 920 Liquid Cooling System
Pros: Haven't started it yet but I'm hoping for better temps than the Arctic Cooler I had on it from the buildup. Which is an ALL Newegg build.
I'm changing over to the Antec H2O 920 because the ARCTIC COOLING ACFZ13-PRO could handle the heat (65c warning from the Asus mobo) on the AMD3+ FX-8120 Zambezi just coping and burning a Blu-Ray.
I have had to remove the Rosewill 140mm upr fan for the rad to fit.
Cons: The last thing I did was to install the cpu cap.
What a pain in the rear.
I worked on it for an hour and gave up to get some sleep.
I sent 15 minutes the next morning and tried turning the cpu cap clock wise and then counter clock wise when the cpu cap went into place.
The Antec LED is not straight up and down but I'm leaving it alone.
A couple of issues:
1. The "K" item screws DO NOT screw into anything ?? The threads are toooo large for the back plate inserts item "F"
Luckily I did not have to use them for AMD3+ CPU
2. There is a ring which is not shown or listed on the installation guide. What is it for ?? I did NOT install it.
3. There are washer for the mounting screws " DO NOT USE THEM" I just used the screws along and they worked great.
I'm disappointed with the installation guide may need a revision so others can unstand it better
