Pros: The board is actually great and full of features. ASUS bios is excellent with plenty of OC options as well.
Cons: My board came without an I/O shield!?! ASUS customer service is terrible.
Other Thoughts: To explain. Yes, my board had no I/O shield. Yes, I can get a replacement from Newegg. If you do return with Newegg, you will have to wait until they receive the board before they will send a replacement. Ama... zon will actually credit you once your return shipment is scanned as received by UPS (way faster). Now, either way, that is not too bad. Either way, I decided to reach out to ASUS and see about getting a replacement I/O shield and just keep my system running. Well, it has been a week since I filled a case/ticket with ASUS and not a word. Nothing. Silence. Crickets. I even filed a case/ticket for my first case/ticket, lol. I also tried Twitter just for the heck of it, but that was a waste as well. Yes, I find bad customer service a reason for 1 egg, because it does represent the company and how they feel about their customers. With a company this size, there is no reason for non existent customer service. If they cannot replace the I/O shield it is fine, but they need to respond in a timely manner--At least after a few days.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SilverStone RAVEN Series RV05B Black Plastic outer shell, steel body Computer Case
Pros: -Dual 180mm Fans
-Front Removable Filter
-90 Degree Motherboard
Cons: -Cable Management
-SSD Mount Locations
-Alot O Plastic
-Tight Space--Plan Ahead
-Has More Design Quality Than Actual Material Quality
Other Thoughts: Overall I really like this case. It had everything I was looking for: air flow (SLI), at least one 120mm exhaust mount (Corsair H80i GT), ability to run cables to the top of the case (90 degree mobo), and 2x SSD mounts.
There are some areas on the internals I would change: SSD mounts need to both be on top or bottom, motherboard tray design, no optical drive bay, and all of this would help improve the cable management behind the mobo. There are also areas where metal could have been used over plastic, and some of the metal needs to be reinforced (cough... mobo tray). No big deal, but you must realize you are paying for design on this case and not materials.
Now, there is one great cable management aspect of this case. Any cables that are located at the top of your motherboard can be stuffed in a pocket between the internal frame and the front plastic plate of the case, as there is a decent pocket of space.
This review is from: RAZER Blackwidow Tournament Edition Gaming Mechanical Keyboard
Pros: - Compact
Other Thoughts: I find reasons to type just because this keyboard feels so nice. If you do not need a 10-key, which I do not, this keyboard is perfect. Also, I picked it because only the Razer logo is illuminated and not the entire keyboard. Combine that with the Razer software and I have just been blown away by the quality. My favorite purchase of 2014 (yeah, it's that good).READ FULL REVIEW
