1 out of 5 eggs Easy to buy knowing WD reliability on there consumer drives! 11/30/2016

This review is from: WD Re 4TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SAS 6Gb/s 32MB Cache 3.5 inch WD4001FYYG

Pros: s/n is marked on back of drive so you can locate bad drive off storage manager!
They look really nice on your desk as a paper weight.

Cons: 1 of 6 DOA second one never worked proper (no errors) and died 2 weeks later, 3rd disk would not show fault but could not be used in array without missing files (unable to copy) files were usable just not copyable. Finally 3 years later it showed errors and can now find the bad drive. All drives worked fine on there own so was hard to tell what drive was bad.

Other Thoughts: I should have just sent them all back right away i paid 400$ each and really have not been able to make proper use of them. Shame this drive is the first out of many (32) or so drives that never had a issue other than being old and small :) I guess stick to the normal black drives, even the green drives have been ok to me.

Pros: Well first off i would like to say this board exceeded my expectations for a sub 100$ mother board in every aspect.
-looks nice for a cheap board
-Asrock has served me well with quality bios updates on my other boards this one has been just as good (some of the best bios i have overclocked with are asrock)
-I have g4400 @ 4.78ghz core and 4.78ghz uncore under 60c full load @ 1.4v (custom water loop) stock TIM.
-Great audio for a 100$ board. People who are complaining about poor audio just have no idea how to use a computer and configure there sound.
-Runs cool with out any need for added fans (minimal case flow) even when overclocked.
-Quiet board.

Cons: The only "con" is that its a cheap board and may lack some vreg for a i7 chip trying to get 5ghz. added cooling might help but honestly if you are going for best overclock on a i7 just get a beefier board. (I would see no issue getting 4.5 out of a i7 on this board)
Thats about it for con's other than maybe the lack of sli support but thats really not a fault of the board.

Worst thing about this board is all the negative reviews... I cant help but wonder how many of these poor reviews are just people who have no

experience building pc's.

Other Thoughts: Asrock has givin me the best support out of any mobo mfg. provided me with the best bios updates performance and compatibility with add in cards like LSI & adaptec raid cards. That other mfg could not and did not care if there board functions or not. and even tho asrock is owned by asus they are nothing like them and imho i would not ever buy asus anything from my experiences asus is not who you want try and get even a simple RMA done.

Anyways point is dont let some negative reviews here under sell this mother board it really is a good product and should be noted as such.
