ASRock 990FX Extreme9 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: DDR3 2400
PCI slot
8 Core

Cons: Read the fine print---OC the ram or OC the CPU, not both.
No success at all OC the 9590 FX (Black Edition) even minimally.
USB 3 drivers a bugger to get to work, and the onboard connections cheap and weak---1 broke on first plugin of cable.
Xboost doesn't work at all.
ATXU useless
NOT a fan of UEFI Bios.

Other Thoughts: Wanted 2400 ram, needed PCI slot for High end ASIO audio.
You get what you pay for, and this was the only board available with a PCI slot, all others have gone to PCIe exclusive. Quite a downgrade from the Asus ROG board it replaced, (6 core and 16 gb 2133)
If you are not a tweaker, and just need a plug and go board with a pci slot, and are willing to mess around with the usb 3 driver---and are very gentle plugging things in, it's a decent enough, and inexpensive enough, board for the new 8 core FX chips.

GEAR HEAD WC1100BLU 1.3 M Effective Pixels USB 2.0 WebCam
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Nice and Cheap 06/08/2012

This review is from: GEAR HEAD WC1100BLU 1.3 M Effective Pixels USB 2.0 WebCam

Pros: For a cheap skypecam, can't be beat. Mic is adequate, but not spectacular.

Cons: Not going to be used for any great pics or video.

Other Thoughts: What do you expect for under $15? LED's are a nice touch and adjustable, but a mistranslation in some adverts----NOT night-vision (I was aware of this and purchased for the extra lighting)

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL11Q-16GBXL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Previous review stated I liked them, but due to system config couldn't quite reach potential.
Have to add Gskill support is awesome!
A few courteous emails back and forth (with the link provided on many of these reviews) had these optimized and stable.
A basic understanding of modifying your bios settings is required for anyone wanting to run O.C. components.

Cons: None---but you need to know how to navigate your bios
