5 out of 5 eggs Update to my first review after 4 wks 01/20/2014

This review is from: MSI Z87I GAMING AC LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Fast!!
Runs excellent after 4 weeks
Automatic BIOS update on first connection
Runs low temps @ stock settings
Choice of installing software - NO BLOATWARE
5 Bars on 5ghz wireless on second floor!
Plays COD/Team Fortress II/COD/etc at full settings

Cons: Very few. Already stated the one four pin fan connection for case (actually has two to include CPU fan). Fixed with a cheap converter with no issues.

Other Thoughts: Disregard the negative reviews about bloat ware. The disk is very well designed and gives you the option to install all or pick what you want to install. The loss of two eggs for the placement of connectors I believe is excessive. This board is well designed (my first ITX and I'm very impressed). They fit everything in with the video card, RAM and stock CPU cooler in mind. I played Day of Defeat and Team Fortress II before I had my case fans running with amazingly no issues (40c - 50c temps on CPU). I'm going to buy another one when I can find a small enough case with two slots for the video card!

CORSAIR CX series CX750 750W 80 PLUS BRONZE Haswell Ready ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply

Pros: Quiet! Good cord management. A lot of cords! But they are all wrapped.

Cons: Missing any 3 pin connectors for fans. Find this strange as they are standard on cases. Had to order converters after receiving this power supply. They do include 2 four pin power connectors.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fits nicely and performs outstanding. Fits with the ITX board and inside the case with no problems. Image quality is great. Very quiet.

Cons: None really - noted the card reaches 80c when under stress loads but have not noticed a drop in performance.
