ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

1 out of 5 eggs UPDATE- DON'T BUY unless you want a headache 12/30/2012

This review is from: ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Check my 12/14 review

Cons: Check my 12/14 review

Other Thoughts: This is an update to my 12/14 review of this motherboard. Everything I said in that review is still true but after my latest RMA experience, I cannot reccommend this motherboard. We've been buying parts from Newegg for years and sometimes we've just been unlucky but I have NEVER sworn off a brand before now.

As I said previously, ASROCK customer service is terrible. Still, it could be worse. But then I got my RMA (my second RMA and third motherboard, by the way, WITHIN A YEAR) in a worn-out Newegg box, with the motherboard itself in a slightly damaged box with slightly damaged electrostatic paper, I knew it had to be a refurb. Fine I said, I'm not picky. As long as it works, as I'm pretty tired of rebuilding this PC as the only thing that ever goes out is the motherboard. Well after about an hour of building and troubleshooting other components, come to find out the RMA is DOA. This means I'll have to ask Asrock for a FOURTH motherboard and pray it isn't DOA.

Now, you may think I don't know what I'm doing or that I'm killing these motherboards somehow. I do keep my PC on about 8-12 hours a day but I don't do much else. I don't overclock, or put a lot of demand on it. All my other parts have been working for years. Perhaps that's why I've been able to find out these motherboards die quickly, because I use and keep on my PC for many hours. My brother-in-law has the same motherboard, and he bought it about a month after me. His still works, HOWEVER he uses his PC very lightly. And my motherboards work perfectly for a certain amount of months. My guess is that these boards tend to go out after a certain amount of hours. I never had any problems while it was working. One day it simply does not turn on.

Long story short, I am extremely sick of ASrock and this motherboard. I have to go back to my previous Gigabyte board which I never had any issue with while I argue with ASRock for a free RMA. My warranty will be up in about two months and after that point I'll be looking for another motherboard. I have never written a review in my life with one star because sometimes, yeah things are just DoA, but poor reliability combined with poor customer service makes for an experience I wouldn't poor my worst enemy through. All I can say is, don't buy this motherboard unless you want to risk multiple failures, a difficult and slow RMA process, and the frustration of rebuilding your PC every time, just to find out your board is DOA. If you buy it anyway, you've been warned. I don't think three bad boards is simply a fluke.

APEVIA X-Plorer ATXB8KLW-SS Silver Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

4 out of 5 eggs Have had this for 3 years 12/17/2012

This review is from: APEVIA X-Plorer ATXB8KLW-SS Silver Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Beautiful
Tons of features

Cons: Top power supply
Design makes it extremely difficult to upgrade power supplies
Screws can get easily trapped in creases
USB and LED cables are invidiual pins
Paint can scratch off

Other Thoughts: I've had this for three years. It was a starter case for me. It's nice looking, works great, got many compliments. But the fan placement made it impossible for me to upgrade to larger power supplies. Other quriks made us have to saw off tube on a vent, and now I have to remove the top fan. Finally gonna upgrade. Also got heavily scratched off paint went I moved. Durable enough case, but I'm ready to move on to one that fits my needs as I upgrade. It's served as a moderate "gaming" rig all these years.
