-great memory controller
-ive abused many of these and not a single failed drive yet
-great real world performance
-great sequential read/writes
-cheap build quality
Other Thoughts: my go-to boot SSD. the 120GB flavor goes on sale very frequently, great price dude to newegg exclusivity with mushkin on this drive.
Ive built about 20 desktops now with this drive, no RMAs, all of them still running beautifully today.
m.2 nvme ssd's just arent quite there yet to notice much of a difference between them at 2GBps and this at 480MBps.
However samsung 960pro may finally be it. interested to see how that drive performs. Either way, those drives will not be at this price point any time soon.
Pros: -cheapest z170 mobo that actually has half decent power delivery
-usb 3.1 type A and C
-black and bronze color scheme
-asrock quality parts
-power delivery did not limit cpu and mem OC whatsoever.
Cons: -asrock quality UEFI lol
-second pcie x16 slot is only an electrical x4 hookup. Do NOT use SLI/Xfire on this mobo. (the second pcie x16 slot is meant for an nvme ssd on a riser card.
-pathetic accessory kit
-audio is horrible even with separated section of pcb
-only has dvi for intergrated graphics interface
-no additional sata3 (only 6 that comes with z170)
-sata ports are upward facing (I thought we were past this in sandybridge days)
-asrock software is horrible
Other Thoughts: if you are strapped for cash but need a z170 chipset board, this is by far the best board and it is under $100 normally.
With almost every asrock board (this board follows suit) it will have fantastic quality parts and the most stable power delivery (even with less phases) but will have a buggy UEFI (avoid ultra fast boot) and I've yet to have a good experience with the A-Tuning software.
I accidentally was pulling over 90watts over the pcie slot for an rx460 (no 6pin power) for over a week and had a super stable aggressive overclock no issue lol. A testimony to asrock quality.
if asrock caught up with the rest of mobo manufacturers on the software and experience side they easily could become top dog. Ive built several hundred desktops. maybe 40+ asrock boards, not a single RMA, never an issue past initial configuration for any client. I have had at least 1 RMA on every other board manufacturer.
-doesnt suck to build in.
-has room for AIOs and even a hyper212 evo.
-has two fans preinstalled
-power supply is on filtered intake
-nice and long front panel cables
-well equipped with standard accessories (zip ties, good stock of screws)
Cons: -issue come with cheap, low build quality, sharp edges etc.
-fans are pathetic look like 800rpm fans, loud. Startup voltage super high, they are meant to be ran 100% power, so you might as well hook them up to a 4pin molex.
-front 5.25" and 3.5" external bays and pci slots have permanent covers. You have to bend and break off and never can cover the hole again if you make a hardware config change (seriously, this is modern computer case, IDC how cheap it is, it is super simple to have removable bay covers, just an oversight)
Other Thoughts: I love this case and is my go to case when I am doing cheap mid tower atx builds for clients. Besides the couple complaints, this case brings all the modern feature-sets and conveniences of expensive new cases to the vastly ignored low end computer case market.
Thank you deepcool for not being thermalfake and still bring great quality products to the lower end market.
Please make a V2 of this case and have removable/replaceable bay covers and removable/replaceable pci slot covers... and maybe just a couple more millimeters of space behind the back side panel for cable management.
