ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Wonderful board that made for a super easy installation. I primarily deal with older machines, so this was my first time experiencing UEFI. ASRock’s UEFI interface is extremely intuitive to understand and made updating the board super simple.

Cons: It has side-mounted SATA, which, combined with a small case, can make it pretty tricky to plug everything in tightly.

Other Thoughts: Be mindful that this isn’t at precise ATX size. It’s actually a hair smaller. It will likely fit just fine, but check your case’s layout beforehand or you’ll be strapping this in with duct tape. (Note: Please don’t strap this in with duct tape.)

Seagate BarraCuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: After a year of constant use it is still going strong.

Cons: None.

Intel Core i7-3770 Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W BX80637I73770 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000

  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Excellent speed and no problems with Photoshop, Flash, Lightroom, or gaming. Going to work and using our old single-core machines is a drag after having this beast at home.

Cons: Their heat sink will probably be fine for light use, but I had a 15-20c drop in temp after installing something more heavy duty, so I definitely recommend purchasing a different cooler. Why buy a $280+ chip and protect it with some plastic?

Other Thoughts: While some people might want the best and fastest they can get, I don’t see the need to overclock. It goes so fast that anything else is superfluous.
