Pros: I like the fact that when I got this the wraith didn't cover my ram dimm slot on my motherboard. I was concerned it might now fit. Albeit it is a tight fit. Runs all 8 at 4.0 ghz. Temps are running about 102 with stock fan and stock thermal paste on the wraith. So I don't know if using artic silver 5 will improve my results with this or not. Some temps at idle register at 93 degrees.
Cons: I think the con in this is that for a 8 core processor they should include a water cooling unit just like the next two fx processors that come with a stock water cooling unit. Anything with more than 6 cores should have a water cooling unit included. Good news is some of the older processors are now being shipped with the wraith from what I hear, so maybe AMD will wise up and ship watercooling units with these 8 core processors.
Other Thoughts: Time will only tell how this processor works for me. The temps I gave were off the Motherboard posted temps for the processor on an asus 970 pro aura gaming motherboard, however I am getting some readings that suggest my temps are much higher from utilities such as core temp, and amd overdrive. My only concern at this point is wheather or not I need to be using Artic 5 instead of the stock thermal paste, and wheather or not that will give me better results on my temperatures. I DO NOT intend to attempt to overclock this processor as doing so with the wraith could cause my system to overheat, so I am playing it safe for the time being and leaving it at its 4.0 Ghz setting.
All in all it seems like a decent processor only time will tell how this works out for me.
Pros: Seems like a nice motherboard, I did get this working using an old quad core 945 3.4 GHZ Processor. Haven't yet tried the 8 core in this board but there seem to be a lot of good reviews about this board.
Cons: This Motherboard has several issues. #1. No clear understanding of how to setup for UEFI under bios. #2. NO setting in bios that I am aware of to turn off USB Devices upon shutdown. #3. I have had various problems trying to connect a Netgear WNDA 600 V.2 Adapter using the latest windows 10 64 bit driver (not Standalone). The problem arose upon disabling my adapter, then the computer refused to recognize and re-enable this adapter. I had a similar problem with a Trendnet ac 1200 adapter not connecting. The system seems to be slow to recognize these adapters when plugging them in. This seems to be an issue I am having with Network Adapters on this system. I have the latest USB adapter drivers and the ones I downloaded from ASUS I believe caused the system to not recognize these adapters after disabling them and re-enabling them. Had to wipe and reinstall because of these bad asmedia 3.1 drivers that were buggy. Only then would windows recognize my install of network adapters.
Also an issue in the bios when I enabled EPU in the bios where I could not enter the Advanced mode and my screen went blank.
I had to turn off my system completely and restart and the bios reset the EPU to disabled and then I could finally enter the bios to the advanced mode.
It would be nice to be able to have some better Power Management with the Bios, be able to power down usb devices upon system shutdown (particularly usb network adapters), and be able to power off the aura led's on system shutdown or have an option to turn these off when you don't want them on.
Other Thoughts: There seems to be several bugs and issues that I am trying to iron out with this motherboard. I would give it a better rating, however with the bugs I am experiencing with USB and Bios I am looking to Asus to provide solutions, for these issues if a technical support representative can contact me. I cannot write a better review, until I feel this Motherboard is stable and that the bugs I am having are resolved to my satisfaction.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MAGIX Audio Cleaning Lab 2014 - Download
Pros: This is the 2014 version of Magix Audio Cleaning Lab.
Cons: Magix stripped out all the buttons for things like your equalizer settings. I own Magix Audio Cleaning lab 2013, and with the 2014 version they stripped it down to basic knob controls. If you want the FULL version you are better off NOT buying this and spend $99 to get the PRO version which is NOT stripped down software.
Other Thoughts: If you like stripped down software, then by all means buy this for $20. But if you want the same features you had with Audio Cleaning Lab 2013 that is NOT stripped down, you will NOW have upgrade to the Audio Cleaning Lab 2014 PRO Editio to get all the controls you had with Audio Cleaning lab 2013. So save your money cause this is a basic cleaning lab with the detailed controls stripped out from the 2013 version.READ FULL REVIEW
