This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme9 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: This is my second motherboard from Asrock, and I have to say I am very impressed with it. Very easy to use UEFI, well thought out placement for all the fan connectors, and one of the few motherboards that I can find that has 2 usb 3.0 plugs. The white LED lights from the heatsinks are a nice touch, you can keep them on past the initial boot if you go in the UEFI and turn off the night light mode, and they will stay on.
Cons: The only thing I can think of is that out of the box it will NOT support GTX 660 ti graphic cards. I bought a EVGA gtx 660 ti and put it in and wouldn't boot. Looked on a couple of websites and said that it might require a bios update in order to work. So I did, and now it works.
Other Thoughts: My next motherboard will probably be another Asrock. My first build I have done was an Asrock and 4 years still running strong it still has no problems with it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very spacious
Top fins can open and close
Instructions are actually good
Fans that come with the case are pretty good
White Led is pretty cool
Cons: The cons are not bad enough to dock an egg, but they did give me some trouble.
1. Theres a dust filter and mounting points for a bottom mounted fan. One flaw that is with this is that if you have a big power supply like the one I have which is a Corsair AX1200, its so big that you have to remove the dust filter and the fan if you mount one to fit it. Its not to major, but I bought a fan to mount there and I cant use it now :(
2. Sharp edges, I dont know how many times I have cut myself on the front of the case, but those edges are sharp so handle with care.
3. I had problems with the motherboard stand off holes, some went in just fine, others wouldnt even go in all the way and got stuck. I had to take a pair of pliers to twist them in since they wouldnt screw in all the way.
Other Thoughts: It was either the Cooler Master Storm Stryker or the Rosewill Thor V2, but I got the Thor. This is probably one of the best cases I have owned,, just a few minor problems but its very well designed. Now to figure out what i'm going to do with that spare fan I bought...READ FULL REVIEW
