ASUS GRYPHON Z87 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 uATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Micro sized build also compared with my old X58 Gigabyte board has 32gb ram compared with 24gb and sata3 to sata2

Cons: Depends on software and workloads see other thoughts its a micro build is a positive

Other Thoughts: Not as much difference far as speed performance goes depending on Software and workloads but does make a difference with more capacity and newer chipset

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fluid fast and very large capacity 750GB
not sure about RAPID mode its on and notice it somewhat but not tried on all file types depends on your workload to probably notice the difference
I do notice that my very large folder with Large-Previews-On open almost Instantly Wow

Cons: None but to notice an extreme difference with Rapid mode on depends on your workloads
Compare with other SSD not as much compared with say a spinner hard drive

Other Thoughts: I think that the Sata3 Z87 makes a big difference compared with my old Sata2 X58

G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C10Q-32GZM

Pros: Excellent Lots of RAM for Mudbox 2011 and other required programs like possibly ZBrush 5 64bit when it arrives
Best part STABLE and LOTS of Ram

Cons: none just me, so make sure you hear a click-in sound and there is No Red light on by the ram

Other Thoughts: Make sure you click the Ram in properly all the way
Example I installed in Z87 Gryphon out side the case first then when I booted a red light was on by the ram, Rear Exhaust Fan was trying to go backwards not posting.
So I turned pc off and unplugged power cord first Then Pressed Firmly bottom ram in and heard a click continued with other 3 sticks when booted up again NO problems Supper fast and super Stable
