ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VII IMPACT LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Gaming Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Every feature you could possible ask for (except SATA Express).
-HD Audio pins are in a way better position than on the previous Impact VI and sound board seems more sturdy.

Cons: - WIFI Signal isn't very good, but performance still seems to be top notch @ 3 bars.
- There WAS a greasy fingerprint on the sound card, as others have said.
- I'm not a fan of the new locking mechanism for the PCI-E slot, as it's difficult to reach in cramped ITX case. Impact VI didn't have a lock, which made it easier to remove. This isn't really a big deal; I mean how many times will you be removing the graphics card...

Other Thoughts: **Don't expect to be able to overclock on ITX like an ATX.

This could easily be the best ITX board available. If you are making a basic build with one or two fans I think getting one of the many $140 z97 ITX board would be better bang for the buck, as I don't think it's extra features worth the extra $120. Overclocking on this is great, but you will probably run into heat issues before reaching your desired overclock in a cramped ITX case; for example, I hit 100C @ 4.7ghz on a 4690k/H80i during prime95 (I'm sure I can hit even higher than that on this board, but I settled with 4.6ghz due to temps)

Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 3 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Bought this to add to my RAID0 that consisted of two of the same SSD's and it did what I expected. One seemed to be brand new and the other seemed to be refurbished, but both looked perfect and performed at expectations.

- Price was great compared to other vendors.

Cons: Nothing. I have already used the same model SSD's for almost 2 years without any hiccups. Solid and great performing SSD's.

Other Thoughts: Buy these if you are looking for a cheap and great performing SSD. this won't let you down.

Intel 7260HMW IEEE 802.11AC, dual-band, 2x2 Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth 4.0 Mini PCI Express combo Adapter - 867 Mbps+300Mbps - Internal
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: - Great speed.
- Great range.
- Great features.
- Great compatibility.
- Easy install.
- Does what's expected of it.

Cons: - When I ran a speed test it was lower than I expected it to be sitting 10ft from my router, though I found a setting 'VHT' (Very high Throughput), which is mainly for Wireless AC bands, so I changed that to HT which is for Wireless N and it drastically improved the speed and maxed out my internet bandwidth. I guess i wouldn't have seen this problem if my router supported wireless AC...

Other Thoughts: I used this to replace the low end WiFi card in a HP Envy 4 Ultrabook and it performed atleast twice as good as the original one that was in the laptop. I am very satisfied with my purchase.
