Pros: Gigabyte GA-X99-SLI
Gigabyte is really stepping up in their motherboard design these motherboards are well laid out and look awesome.
Some first impressions
The I/O ports where all your peripherals connect to is back-light with led’s now making finding that pesky USB port in the dark under desk a lot easier.
The 8 memory slots will hold 128GB of DDR4 3333 (OC) Ram. (Quad Channel)
This motherboard is purpose built for Use of SLI graphics Cards,
You get 2 x PCI Express x16 slots, running at x16 and 2 x PCI Express x16 slots, running at x8.
Gigabyte is including the M.2 for on-board SSD.
M.2 WIFI adapter port and it has the Wi-Fi antenna mount are rear I/O panel.
A new feature I’ve noticed it the Q flash where you can flash bios via usb stick even when there is not CPU or Ram installed.
I know that on-board sound is not a new thing almost every motherboard comes with it but Gigabyte is taking it to the next level.
Gigabyte has implemented independent right and left channel sections of the board, and this include the full sound portion separated from rest of the motherboard using these nifty led strips that you can set to move with music.
Gigabyte also has a new Screw mounting hole size they have kept a larger area around the mounting screw holes for assembly so you have more room to work and don’t accidentally slip off screw and chip off a microscopic component.
This motherboard is Thunderbolt Ready.
The 2 layer copper core and the the copper plating of this performance motherboard will definitely extend the longevity.
Cons: Not really a con but I like to see more colors that pop on a motherboard this is cool being all blacked out there will be builders that will love this feature.
Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend this motherboard to the hardcore gamer or graphics designer plenty of speed and power and plenty of expansionREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: I haven't had a chance to install this power-supply yet but my preliminary reaction is WOW.
I picked up the delivery box off my porch and man is it heavy i thought for sure there was other items in the box with this power supply but there wasn't its just heavy.
Looking at the power cables they are very high quality,Well Built cables with black anti-cut sheath.
Power supply looks great has a large cooling fan in bottom of supply.
