ASUS MAXIMUS VII  FORMULA/WATCH DOGS LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This board is insane. If you like to play with settings in the BIOS, you're going to be in hog heaven. This is the most extensively tweakable board I've ever seen. I would have to take classes to learn and understand it all. Literally.

Cons: The only flaw I can see in this board is the placement of the M.2 slot. I can understand why they decided to put it on the PCI-E Combo card because of the boards armor but it was folly to put it horizontally. If you try to mount a 80mm+ SSD, the drive will be too long and the ROG armor and CPU power heatsink will prevent the combo card from mounting to the board. You can get the shorter drives in there but seems like people who have money to spend on this, would have money to spend on the high capacity drives, the longer ones. They should have did the same thing as they did with the X99 Deluxe. The M.2 mounts vertically. Problem solved. For me though, I don't plan on using a M.2 drive so really it doesn't bother me.

Other Thoughts: The BIOS can be overwhelming at first. Even the most seasoned overclocker would have trouble finding that one setting they're looking for the first time. I'm glad Asus took their time with the release of this board, it really shows. Be on the lookout for an updated review after I have some more fun with this monster.

NZXT RL-KRG10-B1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs NZXT needs better QA 09/06/2014

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-B1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: Great solution for watercooling a non-reference card that also can't get a water block for.
Easy installation.

Cons: The 2nd G10 I ordered came with a part that should never have made it past QA. There are 4 long screws that mount an AIO block to the GPU itself. One of the screws don't have any threads.

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of these for my 780 SLI setup. The first didn't have any issues and until the RMA is finished, I'm reduced to a single card. Not a ginormous deal I suppose but it's a little irritating.

ASUS PB Series PB278Q 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast response
Excellent color reproduction
Very bright, even backlighting
Has every possible modern input
Nice adjustable stand that doesn't require to tighten anything to keep it in one position
Every game looks amazing on this panel

For the past several years, I've been using a 53 inch HDTV as a display for my rigs. This panel blows it out of the water in every possible way.

Cons: Speakers are weak but who buys a panel just to get good speakers.

Other Thoughts: If you're considering buying this panel, don't put it off any longer (like I did) and just go for it. You'll be glad you did. Just make you have the graphical horsepower to drive this thing.
