ASRock Z97 OC Formula LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Just about every possible option for the tweaker and overclocker.

There's really nothing I don't like about this motherboard.

Cons: None.

I tried to think of something, but I've simply had no problems.

Other Thoughts: Looks good too.

I had a hard choice to make. I boiled down my options to the ASUS Z97 Deluxe; and this board as a lower-cost but still feature-loaded alternative.

Cost-wise I just could not quite justify the ASUS board for this build.

I'm very pleased with the choice I made. It seems to deliver the better bang per hard-earned buck; and if there's a performance difference it's probably slight.

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

Pros: Huge. Did I mention it's LARGE?

Heavy gauge metal. It weighs a lot.

"High air flow" is an understatement. The three huge fans are great! Although I'm not looking forward to replacing them in future.

Space inside and to spare. The drive bays are plentiful and well laid out.

Ample space behind the mobo tray for wiring made possible an incredible tidy build with virtually no wires dangling about. The openings are perfectly placed.

Quality throughout. Built to accomodate a high-end gaming build, water cooling, etc.

Cons: Just a couple of minor annoyances. Only two USB 3.0 ports on the front. Only two? Please. On a box of this class, that's just wrong.

My ASRock mobo had only a pair of USB 2.0 ports available for the front panel. The panel has two pairs. So two of them are dead, unusable. Not a big issue but it made me realize there should be snap-on covers or some such so that dead ports are hidden and not mistaken for live ports by a user.

So, I have too many USB 2.0 ports and too few 3.0. Take the hint, CM! No eggs off, though. Its still a great case at a decent price.

Other Thoughts: I see that it's out of stock at the moment. Not a surprise, this case is probably popular and very well should be.

EVGA 01G-P4-2757-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 750 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 FTW w/ ACX Cooler Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good card. I paid just under $100 for it and consider it a major bargain.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I got this card really as a gap-filler for a high-performing box-in-progress. At a later date it will be replaced with a pair of more serious cards in the $400 range. But I've wound up being surprised by its performance. Very much so. Best thing I've seen for the price, hands down.
