This review is from: IN WIN GRone White 0.8mm SECC Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: The three 140mm LED fans are fast, bright, and quiet and two black 140mm fans are quiet as well. There is SO much room and space for configuration in this case and the giant side view panel is great. There are plenty of slots for drives and holes for cable management. No regrets with this case.
Cons: When my top exhaust fan spins up to full speed it vibrates the top vent cover making a loud annoying rattle. Loosening the cover seems to help but I may need to put in some rubber dampeners or something to stop the rattle.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Z97-A LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Regardless of the fact that this is the lowest end of the ASUS Z97 chipset line do not let that deter you from buying it. Its performance is comparable to boards twice the price or more. Use the savings for a nice GPU or two. It came shipped with BIOS version 0702 which happily accepted the new i7-4790K. The UEFI is great and 5-Way Optimization is super fast and does its best to overclock your system within the confines of your cooling and power setup. The AI Suite allows real-time configuration of ratios and voltage which is so much faster than rebooting from the UEFI.
Cons: None, this is a quality ASUS board.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Speeds are great. Trusted ASUS hardware.
Cons: DO NOT install the ASUS controller/utility. Just install the driver and let Windows connect to the internet. Using the ASUS software was very strange, the card was trying to act as its own internet router and would not connect to my WiFi despite messing with all the settings. My other computers were trying to connect to it >.< I had to uninstall the ASUS utility to get it to connect to the internet. Otherwise, it works perfectly.READ FULL REVIEW
