Pros: The latency on these things is ridiculous!
Snazzy Blue color.
Lifetime Guarantee!? Nice.
Cons: The ASUS board I'm using recognized the RAM as 1600 as opposed to 1866. It also auto set the timing to 9-11-11-28 or something like that. So, I did have to go in and manually set that. Twice. After I updated the BIOS, it forgot, so I had to do it again. But that's small potatoes, and more of a comment on the board than anything else. These things are great.
Other Thoughts: I think I'm going to use G.Skill for all my Memory needs from this point on.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I did get an ASUS motherboard that didn't come with any video interface, so I was worried, but then very happy to see that the card worked before I installed any drivers.
Just to be safe, I didn't use the CD, and instead opted for the latest drivers on the ASUS website. So far, so good. No crashes or black screens.
Cons: None as of yet.
Other Thoughts: Bear in mind that I am not using this thing for hardcore gaming or anything like that. I did play a little bit on Minecraft with all the setting the highest they would go (no texture pack or anything though), which is something I was not really able to do on my laptop.
I've only used the VGA so far. I will use the HDMI eventually maybe to watch Netflix or something.
Pros: Got this for a build, and it booted just fine.
Drivers easy to update.
This board will serve me fine.
I've never seen such an awesome looking BIOS screen before!
Cons: I did need to get a flash drive to update the LAN driver in order to update the rest of the machine, which was mildly annoying. But after that, it worked great.
Other Thoughts: In regards to the LAN thing, I installed Ubuntu on this machine first, and didn't need to update that driver. But then I scrapped that and put Win7 on it, and that's when I needed the LAN driver.READ FULL REVIEW
