ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: ive bought ASRock boards in the past and have been surprised by there ability and power. this was a good addition to my build

Cons: wait..what...cons?... well, i guess i do have a small issue. the DIMM slots should be moved a little out more to fit some big coolers like the xigmatech gaia. im literraly bending my DIMM slot to fit it on the CPU

Other Thoughts: im not sure if ASR knows this or if they planned it this way, but the last two boards i had, i noticed a small, verry interesting feture on the northbridge. the heatsink has a centripetal airflow. i thought this was cool considering the fact that it has a shell over it

Pros: hadn't had any problems since i wrote this back in spetember

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: im running a teamspeak server on my computer so as you can imagine my computer never sleeps. i shut it down to do some cleaning so far and that was it. this power supply hasn't quite or failed in the 7 months its been running.

Antec FORMULA 7 Nano Diamond Thermal Compound
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs 10/22/2013

This review is from: Antec FORMULA 7 Nano Diamond Thermal Compound

Pros: i've been using this in all my builds and never had an issue. idle temps with an A10 are at 27-31c.

Cons: spatula does not work for such a high grade compound. its too weak. now i see why they say not to use it

Other Thoughts: after reading a few reviews on here i nearly lost my jaw. soaking thermal compound in water reduces its structure makeing it less able to conduct heat, thermal compound is made to be a thick past because of the elements in it. liquefying it separates the elements making it more like soup (the heavier particles float). the best method that works with such things is to apply a small pea size and apply your heatsink to the cpu/gpu.
