1 out of 5 eggs dead already... 01/31/2013

This review is from: Western Digital Caviar Green WD15EZRX 1.50 TB 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Price. Bought it during a sale at the end of November.

Cons: Dead already. I have seen that others have had the same experience with this drive, too.

Other Thoughts: Still a WD drive fan, but won't buy anymore "GREEN" drives.

ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great mATX board that includes extra features and tools usually reserved for full ATX-only boards. Quality: Part of ASUS's ROG line of higher-end boards designed for gamers and overclockers. Easy three-step overclock to 4.6GHz (stable). Qfan controls all case fans speeds (quiet). ROC Connect allows overclocking and analysis of boot sequence from my laptop, too.

Cons: Minor issues when resuming from sleep, but updating to BIOS 0902 fixed the problem.

Other Thoughts: Bought from another source (before it was available on Newegg). Once you get your build running, be sure to update the BIOS if it is still the original version.

HINT: Join the OCN Owners Club for this board when you buy it and visit the ROG site for more detailed overclocking info direct from ASUS.

Pros: Work as expected (typical Corsair!)

Cons: Taller than I expected, but not an issue for my build

Other Thoughts: Wanted the Dominator GTs in red (not blue), but 1600 speed was all I needed, so I got these. One pair in black and one pair in red.
