Pros: Title says it all, I'm usually a Crucial user, but I don't regret this purchase at all!

Cons: Nothing to say! Will update if anything ever happens.

Other Thoughts: That brushed aluminum -- so good looking. If I was a motherboard, I'd be wanting to hook up with these.

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome board, glad I gave ASRock a chance 01/23/2017

This review is from: ASRock Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming K6 LGA 1151 Intel Z270 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Motherboards - Intel

Pros: -Zero problems settings up my new system with a 7700k. Booted up right away.
I moved my Windows 10 install over from an AM3+ setup, and this board and all the required drivers worked great. Took about 3 minutes then I was on my desktop on my new setup. (Windows 10 did require me to go to settings and troubleshoot that I was on new hardware to reactive, but it was simple)

-The board also looks awesome. It matched my whole black/red look my case has going on, and the build quality seems overall really solid.

-Plenty of external ports

-Well placed internal connectors, no problems hooking up.

-I was able to get a 4.9GHz overclock immediately, I may still try and achieve the as yet illusive 5GHZ overclock, but I doubt my Evo 212 is up to that challenge.

Cons: -Long time for the bios to POST, like seriously 15-20 seconds. I think this is an Issue I have with my settings, but I don't know yet. After it POSTs my system takes about 5 seconds to be on desktop.

-Teaming lan NICS seem a bit funky. The bios won't do an internet update check unless you are on the "Upper" of the two. I says no internet connect, etc... when it was on other (THIS WAS ONLY FROM WITHIN THE BIOS). I was only using one cable, not using the teaming.

Other Thoughts: If you havent given ASRock a chance, I think this would be a good time to try. I had been a gigabyte user in the past, but after having multiple bad experiences with them, I decided now was that time to try something new, Im glad I did.

I'll update my review after I have some more time up and running with my board to report any issues I may encounter.

Fractal Design Define R4 Blackout with Window Silent ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Quiet, Quiet, Quiet!!!

My last case was pretty bad. This case has excellent airflow, and great cable management, especially if you get a modular PSU.

I bought one more of the Fractal 140mm fans to put on the front, and I have to really stop and listen to even hear the slightest noise!

I also love that it has such a clean, professional design.

Cons: The fan I bought as an extra was white, and the case fans where black...

Totally my fault. I grabbed the blackout window one because it was $79.99, and didnt notice that it doesn't have any of that awesome white accenting on the case parts/fans.
