Pros: Top end motherboard with lots of future proofing
lots of fan power ports and pcie slots
great feature set
lots of motherboard configuration options physically and in the BIOS
onboard audio sounds good
did I count 10 usb plugs on my computer (8 on motherboard) without installing the mounted 2 that came with the motherboard
Cons: Samsung 950 pro m.2 caused kernel errors in windows 10 until I updated the BIOS with a USB flash drive
memory is configured 1 2 3 4 8 7 6 5 and this was not clearly indicated in the manual, which, as others have noted, is a bare bones version compared with previous EVGA manuals I've had. It has all the very necessary and basic information, nothing more.
My bad: Wish I had noticed the PCI Express slots are limited in two ways that I missed before purchase, and thus had to learn 'on-the-fly' as it caused a problem for me:
1. m.2 slot draws power from the pci e 5 if i read it right and,
2. pci e 3 is disabled unless you have a cpu better than the i7 5820 because its only 24 lanes, if i recall correctly.
ATX-E, sortof, as it is just about an inch or so wider than an ATX. I had to file part of my buddy's install to plug in the 24 pin plug and i though the 90 degree plugs that run along the edge of the motherboard for sata and chassis fans were inconvenient for a ATX compatible case.
Other Thoughts: EVGA has great driver and product support, active forums, and great service. American company, lots of Japanese parts in their line etc. Just good reliability in my personal experience of several graphics cards and motherboards.
The TOYOTA of computers.
This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-15 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan
Pros: Quiet, multiple power cords, good airflow
Cons: I may be hearing a squeak or two occasionally from one of them, but I can't tell which fan (out of the other 4 or 5 fans in there) it is exactly. So far so good!
Other Thoughts: I originally bought 2, and then got 2 more when I needed more a while later. I guess that speaks to how satisfied I am with this fan.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAZER Abyssus RZ01-00360100-R3U1 Wired Optical High Precision Gaming Mouse - Black
Pros: Simple and comfortable design with 3 Buttons, no tilt wheel, mechanical DPI and Frequency adjustments. Long lasting. The cord is a decent length for me.
Cons: Blue light doesn't have a mechanical off switch
Other Thoughts: I ordered mine in 2010 and the mouse wheel no longer scrolls consistently (up scrolls can glitch down, then up, etc).
I am ordering another one today because they still make it, which is excellent!
I wanted to get my wife one but she insists on wireless, which I hate because my desk and devices are a wireless interference nightmare.
