Pros: Lots of good features, and the layout is nice.
Cons: Installed it, got a very pretty splash screen, and a checksum error. When I told it to go to the bios, black screen and a b2 error on the board. I tried clearing cmos, All three of the bios on the board, even pulled out an old video card when I read that it could be a conflict with the evga 770 I have.
Supposedly if I could have updated the bios it would have solved the problem, but I couldn't get past the b2 error.
Other Thoughts: I have several evga video cards that are just incredible, I wish the motherboard would have been as incredible. I can accept that on occasion things come in doa, but I guess they still haven't worked out their bios issues. Such a shame, it is a very pretty board.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: The design is one of the better one's I've seen. I replaced a antec 1200 with this and it's noticeably more quite. The best features are the front and bottom filters you can take off and clean without having to take the computer apart. The hard drive bays that point to the side are quite nice too. Removable drive holders with rubber mounts for the phicical hd's and you can also mount a 2.5 inch drive in any of the bays, if you fill up the two spots behind the mb. Also the power supply pulls in air from the underside of the pc and then blows the hot air out the back, so most of the ps heat isn't adding to the heat in the case.
I also have one with the windows on the side, either one works.
Cons: With a standar ATX board it is a little tight, but only a mild anoyance when putting it together.
Other Thoughts: Not a single scrape from a sharp edge, always a plus when they keep the sharp edges down.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought two of these to have a pair for doing work when at home. I got them for the higher resolution, but was very surprised at the clear picture and how bright the screens were. I also play games and when I set the speed to fastest, games play without any blur or lag...which was almost as important as screen space.
Cons: I have a four monitor stand, and the two monitors I have above these too look bad in comparison. might have to replace them at some point.
Other Thoughts: I'm not a photographer or graphics artist or anything else that has to do with pictures. The only graphics I car about are the kind that tend to shoot at me. If you want a very nice monitor for games and having more real estate for working, this is a great monitor.READ FULL REVIEW
