This review is from: Newegg Free CPU Magazine Coupon
Pros: You can opt for a mailed or digital version of this magazine. This last issue was 112 pages of reviews, product advertisements etc. I just read the latest digital on-line magazine and it was easy to navigate and zoom even for my old tired eyes.
Cons: None.....it is free so I am appreciative and not ungrateful....
Other Thoughts: This is a good read for those who want to get up to speed on what the geeks are pimping out for computer gear. The front cover of the magazine has a Lian Li computer case which looks like a retro candy red Coke machine you would see back in the 1930's. It has a side window to see your gear and brushed aluminum latches.....cool looking actually. Nice touch Newegg. Thanks.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is to add to my last review. Make sure you go to the Asus website and download the manual for this motherboard. You will find an approved vendors list of ram which plays well with this motherboard. Do this BEFORE you buy your ram. Also Noctua, for those of you using this beast CPU cooler, has their own website listing which ram sticks that will fit under their massive cpu coolers.
Other Thoughts: This is the RAM I used: 16GB DDR3-1 "kit" low profile Corsair Vengenace CML16GX3M4X1600C8. This is also an XMP (extended memory profile) ram.
I had no problems with ram clearance with my Noctua DH-14 cpu cooler so heads up.
This was all mounted in a Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 full tower case.
Pros: I got this little gem on sale ($189.00 - yowza) for my new computer build. This thing is fast. I have had zero problems with this drive. I use a Samsung 830 series 128 GB SSD for a boot drive and it too works flawlessly.
If you are looking for speed and reliabilty - this is it. Samsung uses their own proprietary controller and from my reads this gives them the edge over the competition. If you are anything like me and you want QUALITY and RELIABILTY, then you make this purchase otherwise; the rest of the SSDs have their own weaknesses in one form or another.
Other Thoughts: Watch for this on sale. Get on Neweggs email list for special deals with promo codes. I spent 2 if not 3 months researching who had the "good deals" and "real customer service" and I have no regrets buying this SSD from Newegg. None.
