MSI H97M-G43 LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs MSI H97M-G43 LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard 06/06/2014

This review is from: MSI H97M-G43 LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Attractive looking board. Paired with the i3-4330 it out performs my water cooled, OCed, QX6850 setup running at 4.2 GHz. USB 2.0 at very top for keyboard and mouse ensures reliable input verses driver dependent USB 3.0. Two PCIe X 1 slots (1 usable) for modern hardware because for me old PCI slots are a waste of space.
M.2 support for M.2 PCIe up to 10Gb/s under UEFI option ROM will be nice in the near future. Runs 8GBs DDRIII 1866 Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer at 1600 MHz without issues. This board's UEFI BIOS is easy to navigate and has lots of options. Two BIOS updates executed smoothly from UEFI update and thumb drive.

Cons: Could not use in a slim Pixxo case as originally planned due to the side SATA ports directly against power supply housing. Purchased this in part because the description stated support for RAM faster than DDRIII 1600 but that appears to be misinformation after contacting MSI. No support for XP 64bit which is the OS I use most frequently and dual-boot alongside Windows 7 on my personal machine.

Other Thoughts: Could not use this board as originally intended to replace an ailing AMD HTPC (later found the Pyro SSD responsible). Will toy around with this for a while.

XIGMATEK PTR-CN881 HDT Northbridge Aluminum alloy Heatsinks only

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs XIGMATEK PTR-CN881 HDT Northbridge Heatsink 03/13/2014

This review is from: XIGMATEK PTR-CN881 HDT Northbridge Aluminum alloy Heatsinks only

Pros: Looks cool, Antec Tri-cool fit like a glove on it. Nearly unlimited mounting options. It kept an overclocked North bridge 15*C cooler than stock. I'm a firm believer in direct touch coolers

Cons: Had to buy a windowed case so I can look at this puppy

Other Thoughts: Next best thing to water

Silverstone CLEARCMOS Case Accessory

4 out of 5 eggs Silverstone CLEARCMOS Case Accessory 02/22/2014

This review is from: Silverstone CLEARCMOS Case Accessory

Pros: It does what it should. Cable is sufficiently long. Sturdy bracket. Price not outrageous.

Cons: Directions could have been written more clearly. Switch could stand to be a step up in quality and or design.

Other Thoughts: A covered or recessed momentary switch would out last this and reduce the chance of catastrophy, like when you pc is running and the slide switch goes bad...
