Pros: Besides being rock solid steady, reliable and easy to configure it also features some very nice eye candy with LED lighting and software that allows you to pick the color you like or just let it constantly change (that is the default). Thanks Newegg for having this board on sale.
Cons: I have no cons on this board.
Other Thoughts: While AMD has lost many faithful users of late it is set to start being competitive again, though the date of it's next release of processors has been stated it's anyone's guess as to when they will arrive, when they do it means a new motherboard will be bee introduced. So if you need a top of the line board today the Aura is the best for this generation.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked on an older Asus laptop I was repairing for a friend. Increased memory from 4 Gig to 8 Gig and saw a big improvement in response and startup.
Other Thoughts: The older laptops made it easy to upgrade memory and HD as well as other components. Unfortunately today you'd be hard pressed to find a laptop in the 200 to 400 dollar range that would even let you change the batteries so for the older then 3 year laptop this memory can be easily installed.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED
Pros: This heat-sink/fan works perfectly, my AMD FX-8330 125W CPU is running much cooler then before. With the standard fan the heat escalated to 150 F, with this fan the temp never pass 110 F while gaming. Great improvement.
Cons: On the negative side is the installation of this Fan assembly. It is always a royal pain to remove a motherboard to install a fan as it could lead to some damage if your not careful. The screws used are hex and while they did provide a wrench it was not long enough to secure the fan while going around the fan in an angle. Fortunately I do have a longer hex wrenches. Just be patient and make sure your ground yourself.
Other Thoughts: While the install is not for everyone it is not beyond the reach of normal tinkerers. I new the problems going in but could not find any other fan/heat sync that would address the heat issue I had to deal with without going the liquid cool way, another install/upgrade that would require time, patience and more rigging. In the end this fan is working better then I hoped for.READ FULL REVIEW
