Most Favorable Review

Great motherboard but I wish it had more usb ports

ASUS ROG STRIX B550-I GAMING AM4 AMD B550 SATA 6Gb/s Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
ASUS ROG STRIX B550-I GAMING AM4 AMD B550 SATA 6Gb/s Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros: - Great looks - USB C front panel connector - Can install 2 m2 ssds - Wifi 6

Cons: - Only 4 usb type A ports - Bios is semi sluggish feeling

Overall Review: Great board, love the features and look of the board. I really wish it had more than 4 usb type a ports. I would have purchased the x570 version of this board but it didn't have the USB type C front panel connector.

Most Critical Review

It was okay

WD WD Green WD7500AADS-FR 750GB IntelliPower 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I purchased this hard drive at the end of December and it was a fine drive for the money until about a month ago. (more continued in the other thoughts.

Cons: Was decent while it lasted...

Overall Review: After about 3 months of use I would get random hangups in any program I was running. I assumed it was software related as running a couple disk check utilities returned no errors. After about another week I started getting BSOD's and decided I need to investigate further. I installed Windows onto a spare sata drive that I had lying around and have been using it since. Tonight I decided to attempt a reinstall of windows onto this drive and see if it was indeed a windows issue. After install and booting into desktop I recieved a hangup almost immediately. Shortly after I got a BSOD. I understand that this is a refurb but I haven't even owned it half a year! The drive it replaced lasted 5 years...

Still going strong!

Pros: Fantastic power supply! Lots of connectors and it's modular!

Cons: Nothing

Overall Review: I'm only writing this review because I was checking my order history to see when I ordered this. This power supply has powered 3 different computer builds:i i5 760 with HD6990 Xeon E3 1225v2 with R9 290 i7 6700k with RX480 It's been going strong well over 6 years now!

Core i5 760

Intel Core i5-760 - Core i5 Lynnfield Quad-Core 2.8 GHz LGA 1156 95W Desktop Processor - BX80605I5760

Pros: I've owned this processor for about 3 months now and I gotta say I'm very satisfied with the price/performance on this chip :D

Cons: Only con is the stock heatsink, but I honestly didn't expect to much of it since it's not one of the EE processors

Overall Review: When I was using the stock HSF i would idle at about 40-50. I am using an Antec 600 v2 which is well ventilated. After switching to a cheap Thermal Take HSF which I've had since my old Prescott 3.2 I saw temps drop to 28 idle @ 3.4ghz. I'm very happy that I could reuse this old HSF (my EVGA board has holes for both lga775 and 1156 hsf's) since it saved me a little money :D

I dunno whats with all the complaints

Pros: I really dont know why people are bashing this product so much, I dont own the 20gb version of this, I have the 5 and it works great. I have yet to have any of the problems most have put down. Odd O.o

Cons: umm, not as many accesories as the iPod?

Overall Review: It's a great player, I did alot of research on it before I got it. and I am thouroughly happy with it ^_^

Another Great product from MSI

Comments: I have been building computers for a couple of years now. I have used several different motherboard companys. MSI is the only one who has consistantly been perfect. 5 out of 5
