Pros: TONS of features
Native SATA 6 Gb/s
USB 3.0 connector
Supports high bandwidth RAM
Cons: First board gave a CPU error. Emailed ASUS RMA department and listed all steps taken to isolate the issue. They took the board back and returned it (or maybe a new one, idk). Hooked it up with no issues whatsoever.
Other Thoughts: Powerful features and a good RMA experience. Docked one egg as the board made it through Quality Control with an issue. However, ASUS was prompt in getting the board returned.
Also, check the RAM against what is compatible with this mobo to ensure a proper POST and functionality of the baord.
Moves tons of air
Static pressure for mounting with filters
Finally comes in Orange
Cons: The price. But, hey, you pay for quality parts.
Other Thoughts: I bought these based on experience with my CF-V12HB. I love the power and silence that they offer. I have noticed about a 5 Celsius drop in my video card temps and about 1 Celsius drop in CPU temp (going to closed loop. On air now). These replaced 2 Antec 140mm intake fans, and wow. Nice difference. Case is much more silent.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great performing card. Cooler only takes up the normal 2 slots instead of 3. Came with 3 free games.
It's one of those guys that has your back in a fight, no matter what.
Cons: Not as quiet as I thought it would have been (docked an egg for that). Long. Measure your clearance if you are in a mid sized case!
Does not make waffles or french toast.
Other Thoughts: Came from a 560Ti with the Arctic Cooler II aftermarket cooler on it. I never heard the fans (of the 560Ti) make a noise unless I cranked them up myself. But this 770 does dance circles around the 560Ti. I ended up using my old card as dedicated PhysX. Did I need it? Probably not. Is it nice when things get hectic in Metro 2033? Yes.
Being that I have another card right below the 770, it can get noisy. So I am thinking that I may just forgo the PhysX and sell my old card.
May get a 2nd one for SLI down the road, but might end up getting one with a quieter cooler and same clock speeds to be the top card.
