ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming/AURA LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Motherboards - Intel

Pros: Well built.
Pretty typical Asus board, I feel like their quality and issues are pretty consistent at this point in the game, and this board offers no surprises.

Cons: "AURA" is a thing you have to watch out for because there are only four board at the time of writing this that Asus sells that have the 12V RGB header on the motherboard to TRULY make them Aura Sync complete devices, and this isn't one of them. This WILL sync up with things like Asus AURA enabled video cards, but it will NOT control things like the Phanteks case lighting.

Also, this case has a REAL affinity for the onboard GPU, set it to PCIE as primary all you want but it will still most often require a DP cable in the onboard slot to power on, at which point I can switch it no problem. Gets really old, there is one newer BIOS revision I have yet to apply but the barely existent patch notes say nothing about this issue so, not getting my hopes up.

Other Thoughts: I only took off one star for the AURA crud, they could just as easily have said AURA and AURA Sync or AURA+ pr...really anything to differentiate that they aren't the same. The board works well and isn't exactly lacking in features, I was tempted to knock another .5 of a star off for the onboard video issue but, I don't know, it just doesn't overall feel like a 3.5 star board.

Not perfect, but pretty darn solid, with some minor marketing wank and one annoying bug.

3 out of 5 eggs Not Bootable 05/17/2013

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-064G-A75

Pros: FAST, WOW fast, 143MB/sec sustained for an entire 22.6GB copy. (HP Envy 15 with Intel 520 SSD)

Cons: Not bootable. Try as I might I cannot get anything UEFI or otherwise to see this drive as bootable, even the MS USB Image tool wont see the drive as a bootable USB drive, I've tried NTFS, FAT32, GPT and MBR style partitions, it appears that the device isn't flagged as a USB drive, but it isn't flagged as a hard drive either, no BIOS will show it in the list of bootable drives. Very irritating.

Pros: Hard to think of any considering it doesn't do 24p properly and Neweggs return policy is so awful.

Cons: Neweggs zero return policy for CPU's is...unacceptable. I can only get a replacement, which would be great if the CPU was damaged, but when, like now, it had a silicon level's useless. I bought this for an HTPC and turns out intel botched 24p playback. So now I have a CPU that was DESIGNED faulty, and no way to return it. I paid more for the CPU and more for the shipping than I would have on a certain jungle themed website...all for what? To support Newegg. I could have returned it had I bought it from a certain jungle themed website. As it stands I've been rewarded by being S out of luck thanks to a really LAME return policy.

My long streak of supporting Newegg is officially over.

What a terrible policy.
