Pros: Very good performance
Rock solid reliability
Cons: Run VERY hot
High power consumption
Other Thoughts: They haven't quite paid for themselves in Ethereum mining, but getting close despite the high power usage.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 3 x PCI-Ex16 slots
Wide CPU support
2 x PS2 connections (nice for folks that don't have a lot of USB mice/KB/KVMs)
Cons: Board does NOT support multi-GPU very well at all, almost NO throughput to the 3'd PCI-E x16 slot if you are using the other 2, and poor performance on the other 2 even when only using 2 x16 slots.
UEFI bios, like EVERY UEFI bios I've ever had to use, is a ROYAL PAIN to set up, and this one doesn't offer very good configurability outside of CPU/Memory overclocking options.
Other Thoughts: I will not even LOOK at this board again - there are less expensive options that work well for a single GPU, and there are MUCH HIGHER PERFORMANCE options at only a few $ more for multi-GPU setups.
I don't understand why they include a SLI bridge with the board, the performance even in a 2-way SLI setup is VERY POOR.
This review is from: SeaSonic X Series X-850 (SS-850KM3 Active PFC F3) 850W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS 12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
Cons: Lower price would be nice, but you DO get what you pay for.
Other Thoughts: I've been using SeaSonic X-series PS for a long time, only ever had ONE die and that one was infant mortality replaced quite quickly through NewEgg (not bad out of a few DOZEN used over the years).
SeaSonic is one of a VERY short list of power supply makers I will buy or recommend products from.
