Pros: a dream coming true, filters for fans, space for everything without piling up components, no heat issues with or without case fans,remove the PCI connector if you're not using a video card, this is a gamer case not a HTPC case unless you stand up the case. recommend the SFX PS from Silverstone 450w gold, nice and quiet.
Cons: using a slim drive, reformat HDD and then i did not know how to eject the dvd with no OS, every time after restart i was rebooting on dvd , after reopening the case and removing the dvd i was finally able to load the OS dvd, so.... please, put a eject button on this case.
one of the 120mm case fans was broken, no damage on the box, more of the silverstone problem than newegg, anybody stepping up to the plate? i don't want to RMA the case.
Other Thoughts: Don't secure PS to the case until installing HDD and plugging wires unless you like doing things twice.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Latest and greatest Nvidia card, it does play smooth everything you'll throw at it, and it better for $500. After installing the ASUS OC utility, GPU-Z does recognize the correct bus, PCI express 3, which is not what I've seen in TomH and X-bit reviews, and, that is great news.
Cons: price and availability.
Other Thoughts: Made the mistake of buying 2 day shipping with rush fee. card arrived in 4. Thought Newegg has the greatest shipping and receiving in the world, I guess I was wrong.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Ivy Bridge compatible, 3 USB3 headers on the board, Realtek 898, dual lan, down to earth price. Instalattion was a breeze. I always wanted an Asus board, but this is just unbeatable. Dropped a 3770k, was recognized without a bios update. Intel lan and ALC898 are impressive. SATA controllers set default is AHCI for SSD.
Cons: Bios ( or UEFI) seems a bit hard to use when it comes to memory: XMP profile, 1333, 1600 settings. Not a big deal, I'll update it anyway.
Other Thoughts: If you know what you are looking for this board is hard to pass. In my opinion, one of the best Z77 boards. OC is available and works, cpu multiplier, FSB, it's all there. To early to push the CPU to the limit, easy to get 4Ghz on stock Intel heatsink. Very nice system monitoring status pages.
