Pros: NONE, since I can't even get past the BIOS splash screen.
Cons: The worst part about this board, is that it is NOT compatible with the GTX 7xx line of graphics cards. When I tried to start my computer for the first time, I got a B4 error. Upon research on EVGA's forums, I found that this is because the board is NOT compatible with my GTX 780 card. I have to buy an older card, start up the computer, then flash the BIOS, and then I can install my GTX 780. This is a complete outrage, and a disgrace to the PC community. If I bought this board AFTER the GTX 780 came out, there should have been a warning in the product description.
Secondly, the RAM slots are located too close to the CPU socket, causing intereference between the RAM cooling fins, and the CPU cooler. I had to remove the cooling fins from two of my RAM cards. Luckily, the CPU cooler is blowing cold air directly onto them.
Third, it doesn not have a USB 3.0 internal plug, therefore I am unable to connect my case's USB 3.0 to the motherboard.
Other Thoughts: I am very disappointed in EVGA, and am utterly disgusted that they did not feel the need to warm their customers that the GTX 7xx series cards are not compatible.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: NVIDIA just came out with new drivers, as of June 1st. DO NOT install anything that comes with this card. I just doubled my previous benchmark with the new drivers, which actually un-installed all of ASUS' malware before the new drivers were installed. Everything runs 2-5x as fast. I went from 20FPS on Black Ops, to about 80FPS with everything on full quality at 720p.
Cons: ASUS forces their drivers and software onto you. Luckily, NVIDIA's new drivers counteract that!
Other Thoughts: GREAT CARD! The 3D is amazing! Video Games, Movies, Etc...READ FULL REVIEW
