Most Favorable Review

Probably my favorite keyboard.

Corsair Vengeance K65 Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Red Switches
Corsair Vengeance K65 Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Red Switches

Pros: Nice touch, very responsive. Great for a fast typist. Feels solid, heavy and sturdy. Takes up minimal desk space but still has correct key spacing. This mini keyboard has a beautiful understated old industrial hacker look that markets right to my heart.

Cons: It's a little too sensitive to the touch. Very loud if you hit the keys with average force.

Overall Review: Loud clacking is great when TYPING ANGRY!

Good price/performance.

Pros: Good price to performance ration. These are the OS drives on a couple of computers and have worked with no issues.

Cons: None.

Classy, solid, and roomy.

Pros: Good looking, classically shaped case. Sturdy, lots of room for probably any possible components and shows off your build in a nice dark frame. Fans are quiet as death. Mounting holes everywhere you could need them.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Make sure you use a modular power supply or have very long cables to reach around in this case to cover the longer than average distances between components. Be sure you know how big this is if you have limited space.

Looks really good, speakers aren't so good.

Pros: Looks incredibly good for the price. Fast refresh rate and is very soft on the eyes even after using all day.

Cons: Speakers are really muffled. I suppose you're not supposed to use built in monitor speakers though.

Top notch.

Pros: One of the better price to performance ratio mobos for using with an i7-5930K and two 16x slots for SLI. Enabled a very strong build without breaking the bank. This motherboard seems very durable. The conformal coating adds some thickness and I hope will help in a tropical climate with an open window. Dr Debug was very helpful finding issues when building and probably prevented a lot of tears.

Cons: Absolutely none. I thought the gold heat sinks were garish at first, but the look has really grown on me...

Overall Review: Not overclocking, but I really appreciate things being over engineered in general. I'm a 1st time ASRock customer and will be again.
