Pros: Great board. Supports Kaveri out of the box. Unlike Gigabytes mitx board. Has the best lay out of mini itx boards. Ran good w/ hybrid crossfire graphics paired with 7850k. No issues
Cons: chips on the underside. NO BACKPLATE. That is a poor design if you want to use a aftermarket cooler or water block. Also as with all AsRock boards the PCB is ugly brown and paper thin. But not the end of the world. The board worked fine running stock settings.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This board looks amazing, Has amazing onboard sound and has a very good bundle of accessories.
Cons: The bios is junk. Owning a Gigabyte and Asus z87 board AsRock has by far the worst bios out of the 3. Unreliable voltage readings in bios. Settings don't "stick". I set ram voltage to 1.65 and 3 hrs later after turning on the PC the board changed them. This happened over and over until I threw in the towel and RMAed it. I have owned 3 AsRock boards and all of them have been more of a headache than they are worth. My last AsRock boards was a 990fx Extreme 9 and it came DOA. I am told AsRock checks boards before sending them out. Obviously not. Not worth the huge price tag that they are charging for this board. There are at least 5 other boards that are cheaper with the same or more features from different manufactures that you can get with less headaches.
Other Thoughts: I wont be buying or recommending AsRock anymore. Thats unfortunate because some of the boards seem nice for the price. But you get what you pay for and AsRock boards are perfect example of that.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The space, The cable management, the looks. These are just scratching the surface of how awesome this case is. The quality is top notch. I bought this case because I water cool. And I must say this is probably the best case for that purpose. Its perfect for watercooling. Easily fits a 240 rad in the front and at the top. I will have this case for along time. Its perfect for enthusiast that like to mod.
Cons: Nothing really. I wish I would have bought this case in the first place. If there are cons I would say the magnetic fan filters are kind of mediocre. And the other con might be that the case has some VERY small spaces to work with. Especially where the DVD drive goes. I had to take the whole top and front apart just to get into that area. But nothing to take a egg away for.
Other Thoughts: Get it. I wasn't expecting to like a computer case as much as I do this one. The space it has to hide cables and water cooling parts is unrivaled. Good job corsair, This is my 3rd corsair case and they are all good but this one is easily the best!READ FULL REVIEW
