This review is from: ASUS P8B-X LGA 1155 Intel C202 ATX Intel Xeon E3 Server Motherboard
Pros: Nice layout. Plenty of memory expansion. Fast delivery by Newegg, as usual.
Cons: Won't post.
Installed Intel E3_1230 v2 LGA 1155 CPU and 4 GB stick of Crucial CT51272BA1067 RAM. I'm getting 4 short beeps and wonder if the memory is the issue (even though Crucial says it should be compatible). Emailed support and awaiting a response.
Pros: Love it. Haven't had it installed very long, but definitely impressed with what I see. I'm not a gamer, but may try a few to see if it's as good as the reviews I've read.
Newegg delivery was fast and took advantage of rebate. Overall....very pleased.
Cons: Not really a con, but this is a big graphics card and you better have some space if you plan to purchase it. I replaced a GeForce 8600GT and almost had to pull the MB just to get it in.
Other Thoughts: Definitely runs very warm, as all of the reviews mention. The idle temp is about 71 C. I installed the Gfx Chilla 4, which takes up even more space, but keeps the idle temp at a very nice 44 C.READ FULL REVIEW
