Pros: It's huge! I mean, HUGE!
My new Sabertooth MB looks puny in there, and you can barely see the wiring. Fans are very quiet! I love the cover over the on/off switch, no more accidents! Love the front facing ports, easy to see and use.
Cons: The side fan hooks up to the motherboard directly, they should make a two piece plug so you can hook it up easier once your video card is installed.
Dust filters are a joke, as they are on all cases.
I got a pair of pantyhose from my GF and cut up pieces and used tape to hold them in place. Much more efficient and easier to clean! I also put a piece of Filtron, washable filter material under the PS. It's available at auto parts stores.
Other Thoughts: Newegg sent the case via UPS, but instead of 4-5 day delivery I got it in 3 days!
The mother board was sent by FedEx, which delivered it to the post office in 4 days, who then brought it to me the next day.
FedEX is great for documents, but for bulk packages, why not skip them and just send everything via the post office for a 4-5 day delivery?
Pros: Wonderful board, lots of features. Asus is really on the ball with 8 sata ports, I have 4 HDs and 2 CD-DVD-RW so I needed the extra ports. Love the 4 pin fan connectors!
Cons: I wish the sata ports were marked better, as you need to have your C:/ drive in the right port for the bios to find it..
Once I had windows up and running I changed my driver letters and now there is no problem booting. Everything worked perfectly except for the sound!
Other Thoughts: There was no sound output at first. Checked and double checked everything. Windows said everything was fine, Asus bios control was fine. Software drivers up to date and loaded properly. Looked it up on forums and saw others had the same problem but no solution I hadn't already tried.. Then just for the heck of it I plugged in my earphones and heard sound! When I unplugged the phones sound came from the speakers!
What happened? I don't know, it's as if the hardware had been asleep and I woke it up! Now the board works 100% perfect !!
Pros: Looks and works great.
So far they have recognized what ever I inserted, cd, dvd or bluray with no problems.
I've used cheaper drives that developed problems over a short time: doors not closing properly, strange noises, and failure to recognize a disk without having to reboot. After 13 months both units are still working fine.
Cons: pricey, but the high quality made it worthwhile.
Other Thoughts: The silver front looks better and classier then a plain black front.READ FULL REVIEW
