Pros: Gives me a steady 60 FPS in all games.
Blue LEDs seems to be nice.
Got BL2 free.
Cons: Drivers crashing no matter which version it is.
Card tends to overheat with the furmark test.
Got artifacts on TF2 and LoL, which both those games are the least graphic intensive stuff
Paid $300 for a broken card while friend paid 90 and his seems just fine...
Other Thoughts: The intel HD 4000 is sadly more reliable then the 660ti unfortunately. After having it for about a year its already starting to break down.... Drivers crash all the time! (Re-installed win8 about 3 times and still get driver issues)
At some point i did get slight artifacts but i didnt think of it much since it was only one time it showed up
Pros: -easy to OC
-great quality components
-four ram slots
-enough space to put a big cooler like the sd1283 GAIA
-alot more other stuff i dont feel like adding
Cons: -very few usbs on the back
-the software is trash
These are very small cons, but don't let that stop you from buying this awesome mobo.
Other Thoughts: Ignore my other review as getting a new one fixed all my problems with the BIOS, thanks newegg.com! :DREAD FULL REVIEW

-Can add another fan
-Fan isnt loud under load

(I live in Texas where temps get up to F106 so i didn't expect temps like other people on here, but it should when Winter comes to a near.)
Cons: -The box came a little squashed because of UPS, So i spent most of my time bending the fins back to place.
Other Thoughts: Other then the bent fins it all worked out ok and it fitted on mATX system with NZXT Vulcan case.
