Pros: Meh it worked for almost 5 weeks.
Cons: Right off the bat the headphone jack didn't work, I dealt withit since I don't use headphones on my laptops much and decided against RMAing it.
Low and behold on the 21st of Feb (Purchased on Jan 16th) right after the 30 day return policy I start getting HDD failure warnings. S.M.A.R.T. monitoring is giving me spin retry count errors and warning me of imminent disk failure.

Running an OCd 7770 and an FX 8350, so power requirements are well below the threshold. Constantly received warnings from Asus' monitoring app AI Suite that the rails and voltages were swinging WAY outside of their ranges.
