MSI X79A-GD45 PLUS-R LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard Certified Refurbished

3 out of 5 eggs Good Board for Mild Overclock or gaming 05/29/2015

This review is from: MSI X79A-GD45 PLUS-R LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard Certified Refurbished

Pros: Heat sink package very good, Location of components, Sound quality, Fully digital Pwm phases, intuitive manual with great explanations, Sandy bridge E and Haswell support, PCI-E separation for 2 way SLI. PCI 3 and 2 slots available.

Cons: Poor overclock to competitors, Load line calibration function, Eufi Bios Mouse functions poorly, Overclocking assistant does not function well, Command center not to par, Poor PCI layout for 3 way SLI. PCI 3 and 3 slots dedicated. When water cooled GPU's are in place Routing is a pain.

Other Thoughts: Started off with this board and did my initial testing, all rock solid stable with factory tunings and operating 8*8*8*24 1t DDR3 1600 memory. After Overclocking a ways up I found this board was best stable at only 4.30ghz. The 3930k in question was known to sit at 4.70ghz on air. slightly disappointed with the results I turned to liquid cooling to attempt to get there and was disappointed. Was going to watercool the GPU's but after seeing how they would need to be installed Did not. However, This is a good board, It has its ups and downs But is a great stable platform for air cooled gaming rigs using haswell or SBE chips. and SLI on an air cooled bases,

Enzotech LUNA Rev.A CPU Waterblock

4 out of 5 eggs High quality good product. 12/12/2009

This review is from: Enzotech LUNA Rev.A CPU Waterblock

Pros: Its construction is fantastic, the block itself is well disigned and put together flawlessly, it cools A phenom 940 very well and is quiet. also looks good inside the case. the mounting bracket system used is a very good disign and makes for no removal of motherboard to exchange to remove the block.

Cons: The led light in the center of the waterblock is a cool feature but the issue with it is its a strobe light..... I personally cannot stand Bright flashing lights so it got turned off quickly.

Other Thoughts: there isn't much room for improvement on this certaing waterblock. It's well put together and does its job well.

ASUS M3N-HT Deluxe/HDMI AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA nForce 780a SLI HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Well where do I start, Usable bios, features, the thing that matters most to me is its durability and reliability. I like to overclock so its gone to the red on suicide runs and stayed there at full tilt and refuses to quit. Auto detects everything properly. heatpipe system keeps NB very cool and stable. onboard features(video, sound, Lan) are solid. and installation is a no brainer.

Cons: .... well I failed a bios update... Operater error though. Nothing is wrong with the board.

Other Thoughts: Cannot Wait to try out the Crosshair Three. If its anything this board was it will be great.
