Pros: Installed on GIGABYTE GA-Z170XP-SLI (rev. 1.0) paired with i7 6700K, enable XMP in bios, that’s it, run as advertise.
Other Thoughts: At first, it runs at 2166 MHz, so don`t forget to enable XMP in the bios to run at full speed. It depends on the CPU; unlocked version of i5 will probably work also.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: All the greatest features without useless stuff:
- Support USB 3.1, with normal and type-c port
- M.2 socket
- Six audio jacks
- Support SLI/Cross fire with 2 PCIEx8 slots
- Apparently, according to some review:
- it support RAM up to 3600 MHz
- Even thought, I usually don’t care about this stuff, the led that separate the Audio circuit is pretty cool
Cons: Absolutely Not
Other Thoughts: Just to let you know that, it came with Bios version F3 and it works out of the box (even thought I update the bios to F6 later on).
I use this board with a I7 6700K, 16 GB RAM (2x8GB) of G. Skill Trident Z at 3200 MHz, 2 Mushkin SSD ECO2 in raid 0 (for the OS), one old Samsung Spinpoint F3 1 TB for data and a Radeon HD 7870 2GB . I connect everything, power on and it starts. At first, RAM was at 2166 MHz, but once I enabled XMP, it was at full speed. I build my RAID 0 in the intel ROM, and it was ready to install the OS.
To install windows 7, I use a DVD ROM, so I didn’t have any problem with the USB. Windows7 being very old, USB and Ethernet wasn’t supported. They provide some driver to install windows 7 from a USB stick, but you still need to copy the driver at the installation, so it is kind of useless. That means you need to burned a DVD with the driver, so better to install the whole thing from the DVD. Once windows 7 is installed, you still stuck with no USB (even though the mouse and keyboard works) and no Ethernet. I copy the Ethernet driver on my old HDD from another PC.
Beside those little installation problems, (anyone with a bit of experience will figure this out) it works perfectly well.
Pros: Modular, very quiet especially with the fan ECO mode.
Stay cold, even when I'm gaming, with all the components: MSI Z77A-G41,3570K little OC, GTX 970 little OC, 4 HDDs 2 SSDs.
I've never heard the FAN kicked by itself in the eco mode. This PSU has lots of power. Since I have it, my GPU doesn't do any more coil whine.
Cons: none so far
Other Thoughts: It is actually on special, so it's time to buy!READ FULL REVIEW
