Pros: boosts to 1391 out of the box! 71.4%asic. hynix memory stable at 8002mhz! actually whisper quiet up to 65-70% fan speed. had the core up to 1458 at 1.24volts but had to crank the fan up to untolerable levels to stay cool. i have settled on 1400mhz/8002mem. at stock voltage.
Cons: none really, but i will nitpick. u pay dearly for this level of performance. dont expect much more oc on the core clock as evga already did it for u by default in the bios. i havent even tried precision on this card, as i gave up on that years ago when i discovered afterburner.
Other Thoughts: i planned on getting a 1440-2k gsync monitor but i just cant pull the trigger knowing of all the qc issues with them. i am still rocking my 3yr old asus 1080 60hz. i must say that this card is so powerful for 1080, that i find a very smooth gaming experience with it. i think il wait for pascal and hopefully by then asus and acer can sell me a properly working 2k or 4k gsync.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: i bought this open box and newegg doesnt allow reviews for open box, but i must have got a board that someone opened and didnt use or didnt know how to use. paired this with a 4790k which i have clocked at 4.6ghz at 1.296volts. slightly better benchmark scores than my asus mvg and 3770k at 4.6. i mainly bought this board for its atx form factor and onboard dvi, even though i have a discreet card. i wanted flexibility and the amazing red leds. fantastic uefi/bios. works great with my gskill trident x 2x4gb kit at 2600mhz xmp enabled.
Cons: definately not a board for noobs. no voltmeter check points
Other Thoughts: this is my 4th rog board. r2g, r3f, m5g, and now this m7h. mobos are NOT to be considered Plug and Play. if i expected them to be pnp, i would have done an rma on all of them. at first i couldn't get a pci slot to work requiring a cmos reset. then i couldnt get the red ram slots to work which was fixed with a bios update. i could go on. be prepared for troubleshooting and much research with any mobo purchase, not just this one. after the first week of getting this board to function properly, it has been rock solid for the last month and a half. ppl say asus has bad cust. support. i wouldnt know, ive never tried to call them. you shouldnt have to call them unless the board literally melts down or you damage the pins. if you do damage pins, man-up and pay to have them fixed. cant wait for broadwell rog boards!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec Gaming Twelve Hundred V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Unbeatable Gaming Case
Pros: this case has a top fan! if it didnt, all the heat would rise and melt my case!
Cons: heat rises! call the president! i am 6 feet tall. i am so tall that i normally run a fever and my feet are cold!
Other Thoughts: no seriously heat doesnt have time to rise when you have several fans running. only stagnant heat will rise. can you imagine your living room with 3 or 4 giant fans intaking air from outdoors on one side and 2 or 3 giant fans on the other side exhausting air out? if you compared that (TO SCALE) to your computer case it would likely blow you through the room into the exhaust fans and chop you up. its generally warmer on upper levels of a building due to (STACK EFFECT) now why is it colder on top of a mountain??? just buy the antec 1200 already. lolREAD FULL REVIEW
