Pros: AMAZING GRAPHICS! I love being able to run everything on max settings!
Cons: Make sure you have room in your tower to fit this card. I had to modify my tower slightly to get it in there.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Z97-A LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Excellent choice! The BIOS has so many options and is easy to work with. The users guide is easy to follow. I had no issues installing the motherboard and getting everything operational.
Other Thoughts: Some of the sub menus on the BIOS are hard to find and the guide doesn't quite tell you where they are, so it takes a bit of hunting to find them.
The only issue I encountered was when I was trying to get my towers front ports to work independently from the back ports. There is a tiny gear in the upper right corner of the Realtek audio manager to change preferences. Also all the boxes need to be unchecked in audio management for speakers and microphone. Lots of forums to help thankfully! Not really a con, but it was difficult to figure this out! It was an issue with the software more than the hardware.
This review is from: Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0
Pros: I love the cooling options in this tower and I like that the front panel cables are long enough to reach the audio connection on my motherboard without going over my graphics card. Fans are quiet too!
Cons: This isn't really a big con but something to be aware of. If you are getting one of the new graphics cards then you will need to take out the extra internal fan holder. I was able to add a fan to the door but not the one over the drive bays because my card is huge.
Other Thoughts: You might want to reference the manual online since the one that is shipped with the tower is not very detailed. I really love this tower though!READ FULL REVIEW
