Pros: Full modular, Runs quiet and reliable.
Cons: Unfortunately this company (SeaSonic, not Newegg) NEVER honor their rebates. Bought this thing in Jan, 9 months later no rebate check. Also bought a X-1250 for my friend last Nov, Never received the rebate either. I am not new to rebates and I have never had any problem getting rebates back from EVGA, Corsair, CoolerMaster etc.
Other Thoughts: Why are you even offering rebates if you are not going to honor them anyways.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Overclocking a 5960X to 4.5GHz was relatively painless.
The LED looks nice.
The IO panel is integrated into the motherboard, So it's easier to install comparing to its predecessors (Back in the days you have to squeeze the motherboard against the IO panel's foam so tight in order to line up the screw holes, terrible design)
All the drivers and utilities comes on a tiny tiny USB drive instead of CD.
Fan hub and HiFi front panel included.
Cons: Like the guy below me, I also got broken wifi, But it's not worth RMA the board for. Minus one egg
Even after I flashed to the latest BIOS, I couldn't get any G.skill DDR4 3200 RAM XMP profile to work, Those RAM work perfectly on a different mb. Once the XMP profile is loaded, the system won't boot. Tried everything and it didn't work. Since memory frequency won't matter much in term of real life performance, I will mention it but won't take one egg off
Entire board only has one USB 2.0 header, Are you out of your mind? The HiFi front panel came with the motherboard already requires a USB 2.0 header, Where am I suppose to connect Corsair link or USB ports if my case had any 2.0? Minus one egg
The board has a very thick partial back panel for LED lights, which is so thick it can screw with your installation when you screw it onto the motherboard tray of your case.
Other Thoughts: Your designers must live in a whole different world who don't really build any computers with their own products to see how flawed they are.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: For $200, You really can't get better performance than this card. I am able to max out most games at 1080P with 60 FPS+. Card idles around 50C and loaded at 80C. I don't think the 8GB version is worth the $50 extra since you won't be able to run 4K with this GPU, And 4GB should be enough for most games at 1080P or even 2K.
Cons: I run dual monitors: Usually you do one HDMI and one DVI with most video cards. Unfortunately this one has no DVI nor included a display port to DVI/HDMI adapter. Display port monitors are still not very common right now and I do not want to throw away my perfect good monitor for one uses display port.
Other Thoughts: Fortunately I was able to find a display port to HDMI adapter elsewhere for $2 and solved the problem, But I really wish it was included.READ FULL REVIEW
