Pros: This motherboard is absolute perfection. Everything from the look, BIOS, drivers and software installed perfectly on Windows 8.1. The BIOS options are vast, but very easy to understand. They can also be set from the ROG Suite inside of Windows. The amount of control over your CPU, RAM and Fans is unbelievable.
The ROG Display interface is a very nice touch. Great for a quick glance to see where to with your CPU Temp, CPU Fan Speed and it has the ability to override the current settings on the fly.
Cons: The only real complaint that I have is the placement of the SATA Ports. In the Corsair Carbide Case the bottom row of ports is completely blocked. I know that this isn't exactly a motherboard issue, but it seems that it would probably be a common issue on most cases.
The ROG Game first while looking pretty is pretty well useless.
Other Thoughts: Definitely a highly recommended motherboard if your willing to spend the money. You won't be disappointed.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
Pros: Easy to install, mounted to my ASUS Rampage Black Edition and Corsair Case without a problem. It's keeping my Overclocked CPU at 36c during lite use and 48c while under heavy load. I've got the motherboard controlling the Fans instead of the H100i.
Cons: The fans when connected to the H100i controller ran with a loud noise and were also constantly running at a high RPM. The CLink Software needs some serious work, it really isn't worth installing at this point. I would have given this product 5 stars if not for the fan issue and Clink software. The motherboard runs the fans far more efficiently between 600 to 900RPM (Basically completely silent)
Other Thoughts: Great product for the moneyREAD FULL REVIEW
