Working great!

ASRock Z170 Pro4S LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Working great in my i7-6700k and GTX 1070 rig used for video recording, streaming, and gaming.

Cons: No long-term cons so far. I had to flash the BIOS for it to boot up (explained below), but I don't count that against the board.

Overall Review: I did have what turned out to be a minor issue when I first put the PC together. The PC would take forever to boot up. The fans would spin up, wind down, spin up, wind down, and then it would finally turn on, but not always load up Windows. After swapping out components to try to narrow it down, I finally settled on flashing the BIOS, which solved the issue. No idea if it was an incompatibility with a piece of hardware, but everything has been fine since. This was my main reason for wanting to post a review, in case someone else is having a similar issue.

Pros: - Does what it should as a cable - Fit seems secure, and not loose like I sometimes get with cables

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I bought several of these just to have around for when I upgrade hard drives, just so I know I'm using a quality cable. They've been serving me well since. Just be weary of the length of the cable. These are 10", which sounds like a lot, but you may need longer cables than you think if you have a large case to route them through.

Nice Speakers

Pros: - Sound quality seems quite good for the price (I'm not a huge sound guy, so I could be wrong - nothing has bothered me anyway) - They feel well constructed; sometimes lower-priced speakers feel cheap, these do not - I like the style

Cons: This is not a con so much as it was an over-sight on my part, so I wanted it to stand out for anyone reading. But check the dimensions! The speakers are a bit larger than the pictures make them seem like. I actually said "whoa" when I took them out of the box for the first time.

Works Great

Pros: Does what it's supposed to, it's been working great for over 6 months now. Nothing fancy, just the cable, which is how it should be!

Cons: None.

Great performance + price

Pros: - Great performance and memory for the price - Easy, quick install on Acer Aspire 7750G - Improved performance of memory heavy tasks, such as large files in Photoshop and multi-tasking

Cons: - None

Overall Review: I ordered this RAM along with my laptop because I had planned on doing a lot of multi-tasking and working with a lot of large files in various design software. For the price, I knew the extra RAM wouldn't hurt! It's really a great purchase.

Perfect

Pros: Runs everything I throw at it perfectly: games at max settings, Folding@Home clients, nothing has slowed it down yet. It stays right around 50C under 100% load after 24+ hours of running. Which is the coolest I've ever seen a card run (ambient temps about 75F).

Cons: None so far.
