Pros: Not much to say. Plug it in and forget about it. Runs newer games very well and slaughters anything old/ported from console. Still a very good card a couple years later. 3 fans provides good cooling. First card I've had in a long time that hasn't required some attention every couple months.

Cons: Big card. Make sure you have a large enough case and mobo

3 out of 5 eggs Good mobo until bent pins problem 04/16/2014

This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Good motherboard with lots of options. Error numbers easy to see in case you need to troubleshoot. Clear cmos/mobo reset buttons are good features.

Basically sat it and forgot for 1 1/2 years with no problems.

Cons: Died due to bent cpu pins. Multiple bent pins so not really fixable. Very odd as there were no warning signs. Only lasted from Nov '12 to April '14.

Overall spacing good but a few cramped areas like the final RAM slot and CPU/heatsink overlapping in space. Had some issues with USB 3.0 but not sure if that was mobo related or accessory related.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this board provided this issue is rare. Found multiple instances of this existing with google but unsure of the frequency. I had nothing to do with the pins being bent - as I said, I have hardly touched this build since putting together in Nov 12.

Pros: I've put this sucker through the ringer in its short life span. Three OS rewrites without a hitch. Also runs very fast, faster than it's RPM speed indicates and has tons of space.

Cons: see below, questionable if its a con

Other Thoughts: Due to the size of the drive you need to partition it if you want fast access times to go with the killer transfer rate
