This review is from: ASUS Z97-K/CSM LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: As an A+ certified tech (and field service tech for several major PC brands) I can say this board is laid out pretty decently and fired right up, even recognized my 1600Mhz Mushkin memory I had laying around I threw in it. A heatsink on the VRM and the primary SATA ports next to each other is a great idea. Price is not too high either.
Cons: The AMDA00 interface software from the Asus site fails to install. Best to install from the included CD.
Needs more PWM fan connectors. Only two seems cheap.
No mini PCI-E for a Wifi/BT card.
Other Thoughts: Good starter / no-frills Z97 offering.
A DOA board is a highly improbable circumstance, but it does happen. Don't knock a product just because you have one bad unit out of many.
Pros: Exact replacement for my Cooler Master Vortex cooler.
Rubber vibration absorbers included.
Cons: None I can think of.
Other Thoughts: The last one that came with my cooler lasted for years.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Clear plastic shows more light.
Cons: Needs more airflow to live up to its name.
Other Thoughts: Fan felt wobbly when tested outside of case. Now that it is installed seems to be fine.READ FULL REVIEW
