ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Plenty of Pros, no need to list them all, Northbridge runs very cool in comparison to some other brands. I don't personally overclock, but if it's your thing, lots of timing/voltage features. With the rebate, I couldn't resist buying a second board.

Cons: AMD Turbo (Overclocking) Is enabled by default, using this setting will void your warranty as it is an "overclock" setting. Be sure to disable this feature, and manually set your clock multiplier / bus speeds for your cpu's max frequency.

Other Thoughts: This is a very nice board, and it's why I ordered a second one.

G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL9D-8GBSR
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Used this brand on over 15 builds, and have no issues with reliability. Running at 2133 with no problems. Used the "tested" settings from the mfg. website for guaranteed results.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: No reason not to get G.Skill for all your memory. I always use a search engine to get real data from benchmarks of the memory I am about to buy vs. other brands. G.Skill is always in the top of it's class.

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Provides a good seal between the cpu / heatsink. After the break-in period this helps to provide great cooling.

Cons: (Not really a con, more of an inconvenience) Break-in period is longer than other products, but it's worth the wait.

Other Thoughts: Been using this stuff for years, and after the break-in period it provides excellent thermal conductivity. I wouldn't use anything else (for now).
