All I've bought lately are Corsair cases (750D model) over the last few years1/25/2019 2:29:49 PM

Pros: - Mostly metal, not plastic that breaks. - Doesn't make my PC look like a flashy disco floor. I like a simple functional case, not a case with a bunch of flashy lighting.

Cons: - I buy Corsair cases because I also buy matching Corsair liquid coolers. (H100i) Well, the motherboard mounts so high in the case, that it (heatsinks and memory) obstruct the installation of the liquid coolers fans on it's radiator.

Overall Review: If you're going to buy this case, only do so if you do not intend to install a large liquid cooler like the Corsair H100i. I had to hack install my fans for the radiator. Not too pleased about that. If you want a case that fits everything and the kitchen sink. Go with the Corsair Full-Tower Obsidian 750D. I own several!

Not to happy with this motherboard9/1/2013 12:49:33 PM

Pros: When functioning properly, it does a great job.

Cons: Doesn't always function properly. Something seriously wrong with the board and I think it might have something to do with the SATA controller. Occasionally, the HD light will go on solid and when it does this, the PC does not respond. If you wait it out and the light goes out, it will start responding again. That said, sometimes the computer will stop responding even without the HD light on. Now, if I hit "cap lock" the light doesn't go on/off immediately as you would expect. Though sometimes about 30 seconds to 2 minutes later, it will in fact go on/off. When this happens, the only thing you can do is hit the "reset" switch and reboot.

Overall Review: Newegg had good reviews for this motherboard, but I made a mistake and didn't also search for other information on the web before purchasing this motherboard. It seems I'm definitely not the only person to have these types of issues with this motherboard. (I have version 3 of this board) * CPU AMD-FX8320 (not overclocked) * 16GB memory (tested, in this and a different PC with no issues) I'm installed all the latest drivers and flashed the latest BIOS. I'm thinking RMA is going to be my only choice and not for a replacement. For a refund to buy a different motherboard. To many people having similar issues.

Works for me8/9/2010 1:08:24 PM

Pros: Plays Battlefield Bad Company 2 even with minimal specs else where. I only have a E6600 Dual Core CPU at 2.4ghz and 2GB memory and it plays BFBC2 great. Though I haven't tried to max out resolution yet, but it plays very smooth.

Cons: Takes 4 power plugs from my power supply. I don't game as much as I used to. I've had plugin video cards before, but never one that took four plugs to power it! Good thing I had a 500watt PS from about 7 years ago when I was big into building powerful PCs for gaming. I guess it's still not past it's prime!

Overall Review: Overall I like it. It's not loud even with two fans. It's big, but not as big as some cards I've seen. Some of the GTX 400 series cards were $400-$500. Considering this one was $229, I was a bit worried, but it had great ratings. I want to thank all the people who rated this card, it sold it for me and I'm happy with it.

Best bang for the buck3/27/2007 8:24:37 AM

Pros: Can overclock around 30% (up to 3.8Ghz I've heard with proper cooling and MB) top that with 4MB cache and you get the best performance for the price. If you OC it, it's a steal at current price ($xxx)

Cons: It doesn't overclock to 12ghz with no cooling, but who am I to complain? :)

Overall Review: You can get faster and you can get cheaper, but you can't get more bang for the buck than the Intel E6600. (today anyhow)

All good3/27/2007 8:19:18 AM

Pros: Quick and easy setup (read other thoughts) I haven't overclocked it and have heard to do it manually and not use their OC tools. I plan do just not until needed later.

Cons: None so far, it's been great.

Overall Review: Download the latest drivers before even starting. To install Windows on SATA RAID you will need a floppy (F6 at boot to install required RAID drivers) and I highly recommend getting the latest drivers not the ones that come on the CD. (had some issues on Windows install that the new drivers fixed.
