GIGABYTE GA-EX38-DS4 LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent X38 Chipset 05/25/2008

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-EX38-DS4 LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: The layout of this motherboard is excellent and the all solid capacitors noticeably increase the sturdiness.

Cons: No cons to report. :)

Other Thoughts: Something to keep in mind, if you order a Zalman 9500A 92mm it will need to blow up or down. I spent some time figuring how to get it on. The latch to lock the heatsink into place is large and the capacitors or the passive mobo cooling gets in the way.

The Bios also offers a ton of options and as others have mentioned, is great for OCing. However, I have not tried that yet.

COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black Aluminum Bezel , SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Fairly well built, it looks good, and has all the amenities I wanted.

Cons: The front panel and the locks that cover the PCI/PCI Express take some thinking. (pushing the front panel pins inward and pulling it off at the same time for example)Once you figure out how to remove them it goes smoothly.

Other Thoughts: I'm writing this review while assembling my new computer. I like the case and the tool less locks for the 3.5 and 5.25 drive bays are very nice. It does have a somewhat cheap feel with all the plastic fasteners, but they get the job done. Newegg again did a great job with shipping and delivery when paired with Fedex!

Western Digital Blue WD3200AAKS 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I just bought a second one. I've had one in my computer since April, it's fast and I've had no problems with it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Don't want to get technical as to if this is faster or that drive is faster. What I can say is that you are not likely to have any problems with it and it will work as advertised.
