So far this has been a great machine, I only had a couple minor issues during my build. The first was I installed a wif adapter in the PCI 1 slot but the graphics card covered that slot so I invested in an USB 3 WiFi adapter. The Seco d issue is the the oversized heastinks on the Corsair RAM interfered with one of the radiator fans. I purchased a 120mm x 20mm fan, worked out fine. So far so good. I'm still playing around with overclocking, even though it doesn't need it. I'm going to add 16GB more RAM and another graphics card and a Pioneer Blu-Ray Burner, the Pioneer seem to have the best ratings. If anyone has advice on Blu-Ray software, let me know.
So far so good
The cooler seems to work good. Three of the screw holes were stripped, (I didn't do it, I know better) the instructions were aweful. Luckily the video on the website cleared it up..
It's thermalaste, what do you want.
I'm impressed. You get so much for the money. The bios rocks.
No problems. I do practice ESD when I build, so I rarely have issues with electronics.
So far so good. I've always had good luck with Sapphire cards. I have a Saffhire 7000 series card in my old XP machine, 14 years old, no problems.
Its huge, rugid, well built
Can't beat the price, so far so good. I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 because of noise. All burners make noise, but I have an LG and a Pioneer in my other machine, not as loud.
Windows 7 is way better than 8.
