Pros: Great price
No hardware malfunctions as of yet
2 PCIE on a mATX, very nice
Cons: The stock BIOS was defective. I couldn't boot Windows installation from the CD or a USB stick because it kept BSOD and rebooting. It worked fine after flashing the update, but it was a pain to go through for a new computer. Even after I got it working, the UEFI menu is pretty bad and a lot of features don't seem to work.
Other Thoughts: Be prepared to spend time getting this to work right. I wouldn't recommend it for beginners. If you know what you're doing and have some time to tinker with it, it's a great deal.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN FAN MATE 2 Fan Controller
Pros: These work great! I used these on some server fans since FreeBSD doesn't work well/at all with fan speed controllers and just runs 100% the whole time. Finally my file server is reasonably quiet!
Cons: Nothing serious, but the included cables are insanely long... so if you're worried about being neat you will have to bundle and tie them up somewhere.
Other Thoughts: After getting these in the mail, I ran to a local computer shop and bought two more to keep on hand for taming loud boxes. I love them!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Z97-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI 4 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), gray, by Intel Z97 chipset 2 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), black, by ASMedia PCIe SATA controller *5 *5: These SATA ports are for data hard drivers only. ATAPI devices are not supported.
Pros: I am required to write something here so... it turns on. Yay.
Cons: Microphone input for onboard sound is defective. Mic is inaudible at 100% volume and 30db mic boost.
Upon further research, this is a widespread issue across high-end ASUS motherboards going back at least a year.
I probably won't waste money trying to RMA with the whole bent-pin fiasco with Newegg and ASUS.
Other Thoughts: I've been avoiding ASUS for a long time, but figured they might be OK now since so many people recommend them. Does not appear to be the case.
I was also surprised to hear that Newegg is starting to cut corners on their previously exceptional RMA service. I definitely won't be buying anything important here anymore.
