Pros: QUIET, Modular, 7-year Warranty and it's Quiet

Cons: Stiff cables

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace a Rosewill Hive Series 550W Modular Power Supply that gave up the ghost after almost 7 years of service. It's powering an AMD A10-7860K with 8GB of memory, a single HDD and wireless PCI-E card. It's waaay over-powered for what I have but I just couldn't find low powered (300 W or less) ATX PSU that was modular, high efficiency and quiet. I had it on ECO mode for a day of use and the fan never kicked on. Turned ECO mode off and had to put my had at the exhaust and intake to see if it was running it was that quiet. If you're running a high-end, power hungry setup, your experience may differ. I've got it in an HTPC enclosure so cable length was more than adequate, might be a problem in an ATX full tower though. Cables are well wrapped but very stiff and hard to route, that's the only fault I could find. Got it on sale for -$10 off, which was a little bit more than I typically pay for a PSU but I'm very happy with the purchase, would do it all over again and would recommend it to a friend

4 out of 5 eggs ASRock A88M-G/3.1 03/18/2017

This review is from: ASRock A88M-G/3.1 FM2+ / FM2 A88X (Bolton D4) Micro ATX Motherboard

Pros: Price, 2 System Fan Headers, 4 Memory Slots, DIMM Placement

Cons: 1 Year Warranty, XMP Profile Didn't Work, Questionable Temp Readings in BIOS

Other Thoughts: I'm using this with an A10-7860K and 8 GB of G.Skill Ares DDR2400. Set up went without a hitch. Linux Mint installed with no problems. The memory slots are staggered for dual-channel operation so there's a space between sticks which might help with cooling (but also places the memory closer to larger HSF than if the banks were right next to each other as is usual). I still had to manually set the memory speed even with XMP enabled but that's no big deal. Also, I don't think the CPU temperature sensor is working correctly. It showed +40C on idle in BIOS, which can't be possible. When I use Xsensor in Linux, it show ~30C which is where it should be.

I've done builds with two other ASROCK boards and you get a lot for your money but I had one go bad at just under two years so the one-year warranty that's standard with their lower priced AMD boards might be problematic. As for now, I'm happy with my purchase and would recommend this mobo.

Pros: Small, price

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I've got two of these to replace faulty internal adapters on laptops. They weren't plug-n0play with windows 10 but the included drivers worked fine. At under $10 they were a lot easier than cracking open a laptop and replacing a card. Reception was good. I'm happy with the purchases.
