ASRock FM2A88X Extreme6+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) 7 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great On-board Audio
Very good overclocking ability
Easy BIOS update (flash)
Nice software package

Cons: 2600Mhz OC Ram is not an option in the BIOS
Max Ram Setting is 2400Mhz
2400Mhz throws errors
AsRock Tech support told me only 2400 RAM is listed as supported, yet the board is advertised specs at 2600(OC)

Other Thoughts: As another reviewer stated his RAM was unstable with this MoBo. Mine runs perfect @ 2133, but will not go higher on this board.
I'm using Corsair Vengeance 2666 memory and AsRock informed me that only 2400 is supported... yet the specs clearly state 2600 is an option
In the BIOS enabling XMP to 2666 defaults to the boards MAX setting of 2400. You cannot set the RAM to 2600 manually or using XMP so 2600 is not even in the BIOS options... using the newest BIOS and the original one installed.

I did not have this issue on 2 other motherboards by another company. The RAM works without errors at 2400 and higher.

AMD A10-7850K
AsRock Extreme 6+
Corsair Vengeance 2666 (8Gb)

Corsair HX750 PSU

Microsoft  SIDEWINDER X4  Keyboard - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs 2 years and still killing peeps 04/02/2014

This review is from: Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Keyboard - Retail

Pros: Been under heavy usage in MMO's and FPS games without issues for 2 years

Keys feel great to me even after years of use
Backlighting is nice
Very responsive

Cons: Red LEDs
Wrist rest is ... not uncomfortable, but not comfortable either
F-keys as stated by many are small

Other Thoughts: 2 years under heavy use / abuse from me and my son and it's still fine. He even wants one for his new build.
Price is nice now. Wish it was low when I bought mine :)

Arctic Silver CMQ2-25G Céramique 2 Tri-Linear Ceramic Thermal Compound - OEM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Still works after 2 years 04/02/2014

This review is from: Arctic Silver CMQ2-25G Céramique 2 Tri-Linear Ceramic Thermal Compound - OEM

Pros: Large volume
Non conductive
A little goes a long way and you get a ton
2 years old tube and still works great.
After 2 years of usage on an overclocked Phenom II 975... it was still fine and not dried out.

Cons: Tough paste... hard to spread

There is stuff that will lower temps by a degree or 2 better than this

Other Thoughts: This tube lasts so long and works so good I think the cost is probably too low. I guess if you're constantly using it then Arctic gets more money as you buy it again, but I've built 5 PC's now and have had this for 2 years and it still work great.
Yeah there is "better" stuff out there, but 1~2C difference is not a big deal... I watercool anyways.
