Pros: Fast single threader. Overclockable
Cons: Only single threader.
Other Thoughts: I knew it was a single threader when I bought it, but I was under the impression that to play games this was all I needed to own everything I played for like the next 3 years. Now Watch dogs is coming out demanding multithreaded processors like i7 and amd 8350. This cpu is dead. Don't buy if you want to future proof yourself for gaming. Go amd or i7 if you have more income.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Z87M-PLUS LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 uATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Easy overclocking, This thing is overclocking my pcu on air at 4.2 ghz. And It automatically overclocks ram. I'm running 1333 ram at 1600 no problems.
Cons: This 887 sound card is the worst. If you care about sound at all, don't get. It's capped at 90 decibels.
Other Thoughts: The ram slot only opens by popping open one side, so you really have to press that ram in there and have to boot up to know whether or not its in.
I originally gave this board a 3 out of 5 because i couldn't tell how much overclocked i was without cupid, the sound card and only handling up to 2800 ram while other mbs list as high as 3150, but this board can handle 2933 ddr3 according to the asus website so I'll bump up an egg
Pros: Works effortlessly with a z87 motherboard.
Nice temps with the stock fans.(side panel off)
Running at 4207 mhz
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: I havn't even begun to touch this things potential.READ FULL REVIEW
