Pros: As typical with Asus motherboards, there are plenty of overclocking and tweaking options available. The manual is easy to follow, and the included hardware is well thought out (like the motherboard header pin block, which makes connecting the wiring much easier). Solid capacitors, slick UEFI configuration interface, easy to install software.
Cons: Wish it came with a few more SATA cables.
Other Thoughts: I've used Asus and other brand motherboards over the past 20 years, and while others have left me high and dry with blown capacitors and stability issues, Asus has proven to be solid and reliable. This attention to quality is what keeps me coming back as an Asus customer.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS PCE-AC56 802.11ac Dual-band Wireless-AC1300 PCI-E Adapter
Pros: Holds a solid, strong wifi connection at full 802.11ac speed. Haven't had a single drop out unlike with my laptop's wifi card which was also 802.11ac. Easy to install. The included software is very good, too.
Cons: I can't think of any.
Other Thoughts: Not cheap - but neither is quality. I really like this card.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
Pros: What can I say? Just read the reviews on this bad boy! A very effective cooler which does so much better than the stock i7 coolers. I don't overclock, but I still see the benefit of using this when viewing my CPU temps under load. It cools very well.
Cons: The instruction manual really needs some actual instructions instead of just confusion pictures. Figuring out what was trying to be conveyed was an ordeal.
Other Thoughts: You can't go wrong with this cooler if you're going to air cool your CPU - overclocked or not. Just get it - you'll be happy. Be sure to check your PC case measurements to ensure there is clearance for it.READ FULL REVIEW
