Pros: Sleek, elegant design. IPS. Picture in picture can be pretty useful sometimes.
Cons: Sigh... I really wanted to like this monitor, but after going through two panels I decided to give up. Both panels had cross hatching. One of the panels had severe light bleeding and one dead pixel (that was the panel that replaced the original panel). Both panels were made in June 2013. The cross hatching can be seen on white or light colored backgrounds and was showing up on the lower area of the screen. Out of the box, the yellow channel can be slightly on the greenish side, but changing its hue made it better.
Other Thoughts: Apparently buying monitors is like playing the lottery.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS X79 DELUXE LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: 4960x installed on board and runs smooth at 4.5ghz oc.
Using 48gb of corsair ram with no problems. Will get another 12gb once RMA comes back. Minor hiccups with install but resolved after getting proper drivers.
Cons: This is my second board, first one didn't post after a bios update. Lesson learned. Board was getting BSOD after shutdown and after a couple hours of trouble shooting, the problem was narrowed down to either the Intel or Realtek NIC drivers. I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and Asus stock LAN drivers caused BSODs after shutdown. Get the latest drivers directly from Intel and Realtek. Also there's a trick to getting AI Suite to install correctly (google it).
