ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

1 out of 5 eggs Unsupported with FX-8350 12/02/2013

This review is from: ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: The MB has a lot of features and is a good all around MB. Very economical.

Cons: I started having problems with the board and after I contacted ASRock support they informed me that my FX-8350 CPU isn't on their supported CPU list for the MB. It is supported on almost every other MB they make that uses the AM3+ Socket, and the FX-8150 is on the list.

This seems more like a cop out rather than anything else. I think they saw problems with it which is why they released a new version of the EXTREME3 (Which does support my CPU) and then took the 8350 off their list so that they didn't have to take responsibility for any problems.

Other Thoughts: I think they have the best prices out of anyone else, most of their products work great. Just don't count on this company standing by you if you have problems with their product.

5 out of 5 eggs Good power cord 02/21/2013

This review is from: Link Depot Model POW-6 6 ft. Computer AC Power Cable

Pros: The cords work good. I guess the aesthetic is pretty good looking. There isn't a problem storing them.

Cons: none, its just a cord.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-16GXM
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This product has been great for me so far. Honestly I haven't had the need to overclock my RAM but these would work fine for the job. I've always been impressed with the quality of G.SKILL memory.

I found this benchmarked under the model F3-1866C9-8GXM, I think just because it was benchmarked with one stick instead of both. I won't post the link but you can search benchmarks on your own.

Although its not the top of the line I felt like it was one of the best price per rating, and really felt like anything more would be geared toward enthusiasts who will pay a lot more than what I did when this went on sale.

Cons: haven't had any myself.

The standard return policy is pretty good so test it out as soon as you get it and if you have any issues make sure to contact the newegg support team about it.
