Pros: The board lasted 8 months before something went wrong....
Cons: So, at the 8 month mark this board's onboard network card died on me. I would not consider that to be such a bad thing, but the customer support this far has been awful. The first person (after a nearly half hour wait) seemed like they knew what they were doing, but after I finished giving them all the information they needed they failed to send me the necessary form for the advanced RMA that I asked for. A week later, I get onto their chat system to check the status, only to have the support rep close the session without typing a single word to me. I tried again, and the person told me what had happened with my RMA, but could not actually help. So after another half hour phone wait I get another person who actually sends me the docs I need. I just sent off the forms so the story isn't over, but I can tell you right now that ASUS is not a company you want to deal with if anything goes wrong.
Other Thoughts: It's nice to know that ASUS does indeed honor their warranty, and even offers free advanced RMA service. However, they make it so painful to get that service that I'd rather try someone else next time. A+ for style, F for effort.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's a fast CPU, not much more that needs to be said.
Cons: None. It does what it says it does, and is stable when doing it.
Other Thoughts: I got a dud when it comes to headroom for overclocking. Absolutely zero above stock 3.9, even with a good overvolt and tons of tweaking. It DOES happen - just be aware that it does, and be happy with the (quite impressive) stock speeds.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Silverstone CPF01 3.94" PWM Fan Splitter Cable
Pros: What can you really say? They let you hook two PWM fans (like the ones that come with a dual fan closed loop water cooler) to a single motherboard fan header so it can control both of them. It does it, and it does it well. The length is also nice, it makes it easier to keep your cables in check when you route them.
Cons: None that I can think of.READ FULL REVIEW
