ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs be careful when selecting memory 04/26/2014

This review is from: ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: easy install, great GUI BIOS interface. can really fine tune everything. no heat problems.

Cons: the fan headers located along top right make it difficult to plug up some fans with shorter cords, which can get in the way of GPUs and CPU fans.

if you are going to go 2133 mhz memory , make sure you double check against Asus Quality Vendors List otherwise you will have to down speed them to 1866mhz to prevent instability and BSOD problems.

Other Thoughts: good mobo for the price, but really annoyed since i bought G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL, and had to manually cut it down to 1866mhz just so Windows would run.

Cooler Master SickleFlow 120 - Sleeve Bearing 120mm Silent Fan for Computer Cases, CPU Coolers, and Radiators (Smoke Color)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: it moves air pretty well. im using this particular one for an exhaust fan in rear of case.

Cons: not silent. it hums, but its not dead silent. also the power cord is kinda short for reaching the fan headers on my mobo. only 10" cord. luckily it does come with a molex adapter plug to integrate it into the main harness.

Rosewill RCX-Z1 Long life ball bearing for over 45,000/hrs CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs No better than stock 08/20/2013

This review is from: Rosewill RCX-Z1 Long life ball bearing for over 45,000/hrs CPU Cooler

Pros: reasonably quiet, cheap replacement. easy to install

Cons: only 3 pin connector so it doesnt rev up under load. with stock cooler my temps never went above 56º while playing SWTOR. with this Rosewill, my temps in game are about 68º-70º with fan turned all the way up. still within operating limits, but definitely not an improvement.

manual speed controller poor substitute for 4-pin auto boost.

the pre-applied thermal grease is cheap quality stuff that dries into a flaky crust. wipe it off and use Arctic Silver.

Other Thoughts: offer this with a 4-pin connector and dump the manual speed controller (which mounts in the back of the case) and you might have a winner. AMD 9850 Black Edition Quad Core 2.5ghz
