ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB 950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Overclocks the bios and sets it from Windows.

Cons: 3.0 USB ports would not recognize my SSDs and I tried two different brands

the 3.0 uSB ports are not compatible with Apricorn's SATA Wire 3.0 adapter for 2.5" drive connection

Installed SSDs do not perform right and operate so slow they fail to install and even run Windows Experience Index

Nothing in BIOS to enable SSDs si this wasn't the problem

Other Thoughts: It might be a compatible issue but I just think the board could have been defective too. There is a another person on the internet writing about his lack of success with this motherboard. I WISH THIS BOARD WORKED. I do like it. I liked the overclocking the bios from the utility program. With a press of the mouse the computer worked a bit and rebooted my FX3850 from 4.0 to 4.33MHZ in a few seconds for a mild overclock. If you are only using a regular hard drive you should be OK.

3 out of 5 eggs Correction Cooler Master 430 case problem 03/12/2013

This review is from: BYTECC Bracket-35225 2.5" HDD/SSD Mounting Kit For 3.5" Drive Bay or Enclosure

Pros: cheap and plastic is cuttable

Cons: not enough hole variations for all applications

Other Thoughts: This is to correct and mention the case that required cutting this mount was actually the Cooler Master 430 and not a 410. Though the 410 may require it too.

Cooler Master Elite 430 - Mid Tower Computer Case with All-Black Interior and Windowed Side Panel
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Low cost, nice looking, light,

Cons: Front fan makes 2.5" to 3.5" drive brackets a major concern. Top fan hole mounts are mainly for show as there's not enough room above the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: I had to saw a plastic Bytecc Interanl 2.5" HDD/SSD mounting kit to fit the lower area and squeeze it tightly in against the front fan. I cut one end and turned it around to fit the tool-less holes and not have to remove the fan. After cutting and filing the rough plastic edges of the mounting kit it did work out. You can mount the kit just under the 5.25" bays but you will have to use only two self-tapping screws as the front holes are too big in the mount. This case is a good one but it isn't perfect room-wise for hard drives and SSD drive installations. It is a challenge. This case is best used when only one hard drive or SSD drive mount will be installed.
