MSI Z87-G45 Gaming LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Pro Gaming with Killer Networking & Sound Blaster Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast, decently priced, it has the MSI brand name on it (Which believe it or not I have had amazing luck with in the past)

Cons: Doesn't boot to post. I thought it was something with the original board so I RMA'd it to Newegg and it still won't post. Using a CORSAIR HX Series HX750, GSkill ripjaw series ddr 1600, and an I7-4770k. I am not overclocking, I use the stock CPU fan, I am using a Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced - High Air Flow Full Tower case. It has huge fans and tons of airflow. The motherboard is properly grounded and everything is plugged in. I searched google and found many other people having the same issue, interestingly enough many of them also had a Corsair power supply. I've built hundreds of computers, I am A+ certified, I have now taken this computer in to a local fix it shop to try to get it to post. I've thrown my hands up in the air and given up. I'm going to go out on a limb and say this motherboard isn't really that good. It's got nice features but it just isn't a quality product. I wouldn't recommend anyone buy it.

Other Thoughts: In the future I will stick to value products instead of performance. Why I spent 1200 dollars on a system that won't post is beyond me.

Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced - High Air Flow Full Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0 and All-Black Interior
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Lots of space, lots of cooling, not too heavy.

Cons: The hard drive brackets. I've put together hundreds of desktops and I have never had to deal with brackets like this for regular hard drives. The screws would pop out when I'd try to slide it in. After about half a dozen tries and an hour of trying to figure out what I was doing wrong (The instructions are horrible), I finally got it in. I thought brackets were supposed to make it easier to put a drive in? Not even close. I also don't like that the connectors face outside the way that they do. I'd rather they face inside the case. Reaching the SATA cords that far was also a pain. I'm rating this case a 3 because of the brackets. Everything else meets expectation. Honestly though, I'll go back to a simple mid tower next time.

Other Thoughts: It's not a bad case. I just hate the hard drive brackets.
