ASUS DVD-Writer 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24F1ST

Pros: I guess it’s about time I gave this guy its due, having bought 24 since July 2013. This is first time I’ve reviewed it and will keep it simple.

It does its job, month in, month out, and I’ve never had one die.

The Power2Go 8 software that comes with even the OEM version is decent and it’s not a temporary version. Just uncheck the boxes after you install and don’t register unless you really want to. I remove it from startup too

Cons: none

FirePower OCZ-ZT650W ZT Series 650W 80Plus Bronze Fully-Modular High Performance ATX PC Power Supply ZT650W, formerly PC Power & Cooling
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It’s been running flawlessly since I bought it in May 2013 before Firepower (formerly PC Power & Cooling) took over.

FX-8320
16GB Corsair Vengeance 1600
WD VelociRaptor 500GB
R7 250 1GB GDDR5

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: OCZ must have commanded some respect from its peers with Firepower taking over it's power supply unit and Toshiba buying its SSD unit.

ASUS H81M-D PLUS LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs good experiences with this board 01/01/2015

This review is from: ASUS H81M-D PLUS LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I’ve built 5 systems with this board between Feb–Nov 2014 and it has worked beautifully each time. See key component breakdown under “Other thoughts”

The features I need when I use this board are:

Front USB 3.0 plug – many budget boards don’t have this
SATA 6GBs to get max performance from SSD
VGA and DVI connectors
Micro ATX

Asus Suite software is an added plus

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: CPU’s used:
G3240, i3-4130 (twice), i3-4150, i5-4440

SSD’s:
120GB Kingston SSDNOW V300, 128GB Toshiba Q Series Pro, 128GB Transcend, and 240GB Crucial M500. One of systems has 2TB WD Black as primary—no SSD.

Memory, 8GB (2 x 4) 1600 MHz in each case:
G.Skill Sniper, G.Skill Ares, Apotop, Team Zeus Vulcan (twice)

You would assume that anyone buying a $60 board isn’t expecting to do any serious overclocking but you never know. Otherwise this thing works fine, even for a mid-range build.
