1 out of 5 eggs Was This Designed By A Blind Man? 05/17/2016

This review is from: ASRock Z97 Extreme6/3.1 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Newegg shipped it quickly.

Cons: The power connector on the motherboard for "extra" video cards does not face up like it shows in the manual and in other ASR MB's that I have used in the past. Rather this connector faces to the right side... and allows about 1/4" clearance to the side of the case. No room for a plug! Might work with a different case. But, there is no disclosure saying that this power connection might not work with some cases.

Other Thoughts: Big disappointment. ASR, I was beginning to trust you. Now not so sure. There are other companies that make good MB's you know.

Looking at other ASR MB's, I see the same side-facing power connector. BEWARE - check you case to make sure it has access on all three sides or you will have a surprise when it comes assembly time.

CHENBRO RM42300-F 1.2 mm SGCC 4U Rackmount Server Case 3 External 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Does everything it says it does

Cons: I have used these in many builds over the last year or so, but the last batch of cases came with only two motherboard stand-off spacers. That may not sound like a big deal until you try to find some after market stand offs. They are either too long, too short or the thread patterns is different.

Why in the world would the case come with only TWO stand offs when ten are needed?

Thumbs down and looking for another case for future builds.
